Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reality Star Nene Leakes Talks Divorce & Getting Back Together With Ex-Husband Gregg
Greg wanted his wife back and he sure did get Nene back! The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star, actress and business mogul recently co-hosted The Talk and while on set, she confirmed that she and her ex-husband Greg are on good terms and are dating again. Was their whole divorce staged for the money and higher rating? Nene mentioned that their marriage started falling apart when she wanted to step out of Greg’s shadow and branch off on her own. Below are some excerpts:
Gregg and I had been married for 15 years and we had issues.[...] As you guys know, I’m on a reality show, and a lot of the time what happens on these reality shows is 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 theirs, it can start a little conflict.
I am not sure if Gregg 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 there things that he should be doing as a husband, and I decided to divorce Gregg.”
On Letting Him Go So He Could See What Life Was Like Without Her
He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there. There were other issues going on that were deeper than that. When you are married, there is a certain amount of respect that I desire!
On If There Was Infidelity
Julie Chen: You alluded that it wasn’t just the two of you in the marriage.
Nene: Well, there certainly wasn’t three of us. Because I can’t handle that! Because I am so vocal, I felt like I was accused of doing something wrong in our relationship… and actually it wasn’t me, to be honest, Gregg did something I did not approve of.
Julie: And he came forward with that and although you divorced, you are now a couple but not married.
Nene: Yes, we legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together.
