NeNe Leakes has a lot to celebrate about on Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her nemesis, Kim Zolciak, is gone, her career is really taking off, and it looks like she’s reconciling with her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes.Â “GreggÂ and I had been married for 15 years and we had issues,” NeNe said during an interview on The Talk.
“As you guys know,Â I’m on a reality show, and a lot of the time what happens on these reality shows isÂ that these women are married to successful men, and you’re in their shadow, and once you step out of your own shadow and away from their’s, it can start a little conflict,” NeNe explained.
“I am not sureÂ if GreggÂ was ready to see me as his wife out in the forefront, making my own money, doing my own thing. That was very difficult for him and I felt like Gregg wasn’t doing all the things that he should be doing as a husband, and I decided to divorce Gregg,” but NeNe adds,Â “He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there.”
“There were otherÂ issues going on that were deeperÂ than that. When you are married, there is a certain amount of respect that I desire!” NeNe says of her marriage to Gregg.
In past Seasons of RHOA, NeNe has hinted that Gregg had cheated.Â “You alluded that it wasn’t just the two of you in the marriage,” Julie Chen asked.Â “Well, there certainly wasn’t three of us,” Nene, replied, laughing.
“Because I can’t handle that!Â Because I am so vocal, I felt like I was accused of doing something wrong in our relationshipâ€¦ and actually it wasn’t me, to be honest, Gregg did something I did not approve of,” NeNe revealed.
“Yes, we legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together,” NeNe answers Chen proudly!
