NeNe Leakes ended episode three of RHOA in tears. We saw NeNe have a real moment when her husbandÂ Gregg Leakes, landed in the hospital for a â€œdangerously lowâ€ heart rate, his doctors taking him for a minor surgery test to see if he had a blockage.
â€œI heard his voice on the phone and I knew that he was afraid,â€ NeNe said while she was rushing to go to the hospital. â€œLike, â€˜If this is the last time that Iâ€™m going to see anybody, I need to see my wife.â€™ â€¦ Everything was just kind of going really left.â€
â€œOh my God, what if Gregg doesnâ€™t come home?â€ an emotional NeNe asked. â€œWhat will they find? Is this something that Greggâ€™s not telling me? I canâ€™t even imaging Gregg not walking on this earth. I canâ€™t do this. Gregg has to get better.â€
Earlier in the episode, Gregg had complained about his health, saying heÂ was experiencing chest pains, numbness and felt like he was â€œgoing to pass out.â€
â€œFor the last couple days heâ€™s been like, â€˜I just donâ€™t feel good. I just donâ€™t feel good.â€™ But this time he was crying in tears,â€ NeNe told Cynthia Bailey. â€œI was like, â€˜Okay, you want to go to the doctor or do you want to go to the hospital?â€™ And he was like, â€˜I want to go to the hospital.â€™ â€
â€œHis dad had heart issues, and Greggâ€™s always had it in his head that heâ€™s going to have heart issues,â€ she added.
However, NeNe told Cynthia,Â â€œI think heâ€™ll be fine,â€ but Cynthia said that NeNe didn’t realize how dire the situation was.
â€œIâ€™ve known NeNe for like eight years now. I know she is very concerned, but I also can see that sheâ€™s in denial,â€ Bailey confessed. â€œI donâ€™t think sheâ€™s fully grasped how serious any type of heart situation could potentially be. I think NeNe is dealing with the situation with Gregg the best way she knows how to. Sheâ€™s not the girl that handles any kind of sick.”
After Â Gregg went to the hospital, NeNe has a very vulnerable moment on the show.
â€œ[Heâ€™s] elevating his feet and all this stuff, trying to keep his heart rate where it needs to be,â€ she said, explaining that Gregg was still suffering from dizziness from time to time. â€œLast night I didnâ€™t sleep good because normally itâ€™s me whoâ€™s gone. Normally Greg is here, so I didnâ€™t sleep good knowing he is gone.”
â€œIâ€™ve been with Gregg since I was in my 20s,â€ NeNe said on the episode. â€œThe only secret I can tell you a relationship is finding a way to still love each other and be attracted to one another. Without Gregg, what would I do. Who is going to cut the grass? Who is the poll person? Who do we pay our lights and gas to?â€
