NeNe Leakes Says Husband Gregg Is "Transitioning to the Other Side"
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum NeNe Leakes was recently recorded telling patrons of her Atlanta lounge, The Linnethia, that husband Gregg Leakes could possibly be losing his battle with cancer.
Leakes is seen addressing customers who called her “rude” for not acknowledging a birthday in the crowd, leading the reality star to share her personal pain.
She tells the crowd, “My husband is transitioning to the other side,” before turning to acknowledge those who called her out.
“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now. We walked in this lounge because we had to walk in this lounge because this is our business. So, when people approach and say, ‘you’re rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday,’ my husband is at home dying. I don’t want to say ‘happy birthday,’ okay?”
Gregg was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2018, but it went into remission after treatment. In June, however, NeNe confirmed that his cancer returned.
They first married in 1997 and divorced in 2011 before remarrying in 2013.
