There’s been some trouble in paradise for Real Housewives of Atlanta couple NeNe and Gregg Leakes.
Earlier this week while on Angela Yee’s Lip Service, the RHOA OG opened up about catching Gregg having an inappropriate relationship with one of her employees.
Last summer, NeNe randomly asked for some advice on Twitter writing, “U find out ur husband/boyfriend been talkin on the phone regularly to 1 of ur female employees as ‘just a friend’ but u had no knowledge of it, did he cross any lines? Askin 4 a friend since y’all know EVERYTHING (but he said, we never talked sex! I just needed some1 to talk 2.”
Now months later we find out there was no friend and NeNe was asking for advice for herself. Yikes.
“What happened was I opened a store in Maryland, and Gregg and one of my other employees were helping to hire… I remember this girl, we were hiring managers, and I went in the store and I thought ‘She’s a cute little girl. She’s very much Gregg’s type.’ You know you’re dude’s type…[The thought was] in and out of my head though. So we’re working together and one day I was in the stock room with her, helping her and showing her how to do certain things. I had a gay guy who worked in the store with me, and him her were friends and then they fell out,” NeNe explained in the Lip Service interview.
She continued, “We had an employee meeting, everyone’s gathered around like this. I came in that morning… and they were having friction, some of the employees, and we wanted to discuss some of the things that were happening. So she was sitting there and the gay guy was sitting here, and he said ‘I don’t appreciate you calling me a queen.’ … He said ‘Listen, you wouldn’t wanna do that cause you know I know your secret.’… And then he was like ‘How about you and Mr. Gregg be FaceTiming and talking…”
NeNe admits she was caught off guard but stayed calm and collected through it all.
“I don’t even get out of character at all. I said ‘Really?’” she confesses, adding that she totally believed the guy. As for the woman in question, NeNe said she looked mortified AF.
“So I said hold on, one second, let me call Gregg while we’re in the meeting,” NeNe explains. “I pick up the phone and call Gregg, I said ‘So you’ve been talking to Juanita?’ He said ‘No! I ain’t never talked to her!’ I was like ‘Okay, you have. Bye.’ He went insane! I asked one question he was screaming, going crazy. And then her phone beeps while we’re sitting there.”
The woman in question was ultimately fired. As for Gregg, he claimed he just needed someone to talk to.
“His answer was, cause you weren’t here for me to talk to. I said that’s not cool… I didn’t speak to him for a couple [of] months in the house,” NeNe concluded.
This drama will play out on season 12 of RHOA.
