NeNe Leakes is opening up about her divorce to Gregg after fifteen years of marriage in the latest issue of Ebony Magazine. NeNe maintains that she had nothing to do with the demise of her marriage to Gregg. She stands by that it lies on the shoulders of Gregg, who we’ve seen “wooing” NeNe back ever since Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta started.
â€œIt hurt me to file for divorce, but I had to see it through. I let him know youâ€™re going to be my husband and youâ€™re not going to be somebody elseâ€™s anything, but if you plan to be somebody elseâ€™s anything, then we canâ€™t be together,â€ NeNe reveals. â€œGregg needed to feel what it was like without me. I wanted to let him see if the grass was really greener on the other side. He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there.”
“Not onlyÂ have we divorced, but we are back together as a couple. This is our new normal. Iâ€™m telling you, TV is a beast. It will make you do s**t you never thought youâ€™d do.â€ NeNe adds.
Gregg also spoke about the reason for their split,Â â€œTo expose oneself is the beginning of healing and the beginning of forgiveness. I have never blamed her for anything except being outstanding,” he explains. “If I didnâ€™t blame her [for the relationshipâ€™s demise], I must have had shortcomings. Whatever it was, I refused to have my family become another statistic. I fought to get my familyÂ back, and thatâ€™s what I did with the help of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.â€
â€œWhat we went through in exposing our situation had the ultimate benefit. Itâ€™s about helping someone else learn from what we went through,â€ Gregg says of having their personal life aired on national television.
When asked if he has any plans to put a ring back on NeNe’s finger, he says,Â â€œStay tuned. How do you know I havenâ€™t already?â€
