Well it’s bottle popping time! The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sCynthia Baileyand the show’s alum, NeNe Leakes have mended their broken friendship and are now in a better place, or so it seems. On Sunday night’s RHOA episode, the show’s former “IT” diva, NeNe, appeared on Cynthia’s doorstep in her usual grand fashion and overdone from head-to-toe.
When Ms. Leakes, along with her shiny long blond tresses, skin-fitting designer duds and husband Greg Leakes in tow, rang Cynthia and Peter Thomas’s doorbell, she then greeted them boisterously. During NeNe’s catty commentary for the segment, she proclaims with a beaming oversized toothy grin, “Yes bitches, I am back!” She then gives RHOA co-star Kandi Burrussa dig, then announces to all of her haters, “Pick your faces up off the floor, she’s back,” followed by a quick fingersnap.
To officially kick off the PR for their new show, Kim & NeNe, along with hubbies Greg and Kroy, met up in NYC three days ago to jointly announce their upcoming show. NeNe shared photos on Instagram saying, “IT’S OFFICIAL @kimzolciakbiermann and I have our own spin off show only on #BRAVO! We announced it today in New York City with our entire Bravo & True Entertainment family. Thank you for believing in us we are about to hit The Road To Riches.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes may have moved to Hollywood, but she's keepin' it real out there. Here she is on Saturday night, hosting the grand opening of West Hollywood’s latest social soiree, “The Cake Factory”.
NeNe, accompanied by Gregg, popped by to check out (and introduce) the newly redesigned Factory Nightclub. NeNe’s and her blonde bangs (at this point, I can't imagine her ditching them!) made their way through the crowd of over one thousand guests to take to the mic. She reminded the crowd of her former days a stripper and surprised fans by leaving her VIP area to take pictures and mingle with everyone.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK NENE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP IT REAL OR WILL HOLLYWOOD GO TO HER HEAD?
NeNe kicked off the night with some heartfelt words for her family. "Thank u Greg, Brice, Brentt & Baby Bri 4 all that u do & bring 2 my life! I love you! Welcome 2013". She and Gregg then headed out for dinner, sharing the photo above, wishing everyone a happy New Year.

In the audio, which his lawyers are now calling an unauthorized recording, Gregg can be heard bashing the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, saying she has let the Housewives fame go to her head. “I put $300,000 of my own money for [NeNe] to become a housewife. Without that, she wouldn’t be sh*t . . . She’s going to give me every dime of my $300,000 back,” said an angry Gregg.
As we reported last week, Gregg was secretly recorded by radio host Corey King, during what he thought was a private phone call between the two. The reason King decided to tape Gregg’s conversation? Well allegedly, Gregg owes Cory some money and began avoiding Corey when he couldn’t pay him back.
In a new statement released through his lawyers at The Gardner Law Group, Gregg apologizes to his wife and acknowledges the two are having marital problems. The statement also claims Gregg’s conversation with King took place after an argument with Nene.
Excerpts from his statement below –
“On June 2, 2010, an unauthorized audio taped conversation between Mr. Gregg Leakes and Mr. Corey King was made privy to the public by Mr. King and Large FM. While Mr. King touted an “exclusive interview”, the taped recording was obtained by fraud and deception. Neither Mr. King nor Large FM were granted consent to interview Mr. Leakes and an interview never occurred.
Throughout the duration of the call with Mr. King, Mr. Leakes was under the impression that he was simply confiding in a friend after an argument with his wife. However, Mr. King has demonstrated through this blatant disregard of Mr. Leakes’ privacy that he does not even comprehend the word “friend”. The audio recording was deceptive and the release of it was nothing short of malicious.
It is not a secret to anyone that Mr. and Mrs. Leakes are facing marital challenges, a situation common to many couples. However, there is no doubt that Mr. King’s intentions were dishonorable, hateful, and inexcusable. His deceptive act was committed without any regard to Mr. or Mrs. Leakes.
Mr. Leakes has apologized privately to his wife and he offers a sincere apology to the others mentioned in the audio. Any further discussion of the matter should be amongst Mr. Leakes and those individuals, privately.”
TELL US: DO YOU THINK GREGG AND NENE’S MARRIAGE STANDS A CHANCE AFTER THIS INCIDENT?
According to theybf.com, Greg borrowed some money from one of the radio show hosts Corey King. The money helped Greg take he and Nene’s house out of foreclosure. Greg however began avoiding Corey when he couldn’t pay him back. This led to Corey calling Greg and secretly taping their convo out of revenge. The coversation was then leaked online yesterday.
In the phone conversation, Greg shares that he plans on divorcing Nene and that the Atlanta Housewives fame has gone to her head. “I put $300,000 of my own money for [NeNe] to become a housewife. Without that, she wouldn’t be sh*t . . . She’s going to give me every dime of my $300,000 back,” said an angry Greg.
It seems Greg also intends to get spousal support from Nene, who is now the breadwinner of the family, thanks to her Bravo income.
Greg also phoned in to Kandi Burruss’s internet radio show yesterday night, and admitted it was him on the tape. Theybf sources share that Nene heard the conversation yesterday and was livid. She’s apparently planning on beating Greg to the divorce filing.
Bryson was arrested earlier this month for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, and for failure to show up to court. A source tells RadarOnline, “It has put pressure on her relationship with her husband Gregg Leakes who is not Bryson’s real father as they both know that he’s still drinking and smoking with his buddies.”
The source continues, “NeNe perceives herself as a real socialite in Atlanta and she does not like the fact that Bryson’s arrest generated bad publicity for her and she is worried that he might get into more trouble in the future.”
It seems the pressure on Nene’s marriage is coming from disagreeing with her husband on the best way to discipline Bryson, who is an adult. “It might make for good material for the new Housewives series but the reality is that it has put a lot of pressure on her relationship with her husband and she’s really worried that her son is falling in with a bad crowd,” adds the source.
