Gregg Leakes made headlines last week when an audio tape of him trashing his wife Nene Leakes leaked online.

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?

Despite their recent and constant denials of a split, it seems there is trouble in the Leakes paradise after all.

Audio of Greg Leakes, husband of Nene Leakes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, was leaked on LargeFM.com yesterday, and Greg, who has since admitted it was him on the tape, can be heard viciously bashing his wife Nene.

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.

NENE LEAKES NOSE JOB

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes appeared on the Wendy Williams Show weeks ago much to rumblings that she had gotten a nose job. Well now there is photographic evidence.

The Atlanta housewife attended a Dancing Stars of Atlanta Benefit event Sunday night along with her fellow castmates and the photos tell it all. While Nene has yet to publicly comment on her plastic surgery, she looks noticeably different in the face. There are also rumblings that she had more than her nose done. You can see more photos of Nene below.

Nene who was in attendance with her husband Gregg despite separation rumors, was actually at the event to support her fellow housewife Sheree Whitfield, who danced at the charity event which raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Also in attendance were Kandi Burruss, Kim Zolciak’s wig, and new housewife Cynthia Bailey. Photos below are courtesy of FreddyO.

The third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta only began filming weeks ago and the drama is already raging on.

RadarOnline is reporting that former enemies Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak came together last Friday and decided to confront honorary 6th housewife Dwight Eubanks, leading to a very nasty war of words and chair throwing between the parties.

“Dwight was at the hotel for what he thought was going to be a casual meeting,” a source tells Radar. “But instead the producers had their own plans as they brought in Kim and NeNe to confront Eubanks about several issues, only for Dwight to call them out. NeNe and Kim came storming into the hotel and got straight in Dwight’s face, accusing him of spreading lies about them and making up rumors.”

The source continues, “It was absolutely crazy! NeNe and Kim were both screaming at him, and he gave back as good as he got. Dwight started yelling at NeNe that she was nothing but a common prostitute and that she had hooked up with a married man, and he totally trash talked Kim too.”

The rumor now is that Nene’s husband Gregg Leakes was still married when she met him, while dancing at a strip club. “NeNe lost her temper and attacked Dwight with a chair, breaking off a leg and Kim threw a vase at him! It was like a scene out of some crazy movie!,” continued the source.

Access Atlanta was able to get ahold of Dwight, who confirmed the events did indeed take place. “It was real… she bruised me up a little bit,” said Dwight. When asked if there was any permanent damage, he said, “I’ll survive. We’re fine.”

In other Atlanta news, all of the housewives including the two newest housewives, Cynthia Bailey and a very pregnant Phaedra Parks were all in attendance at a listening party for Kandi Burruss, who is currently working on her new album. Photos of that below -

The Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies have been rather busy lately. The good news is no evictions, foreclosures, or short sales have been reported for any of the housewives in almost a year.  And though a new housewife (reported to be Phaedra Parks) has been added to the mix for the third season, Lisa Wu Hartwell revealed exclusively to Hollywood life that no housewife will be leaving.

This is good news for Lisa, as she was heavily rumored to be the housewife getting the axe.  As for her feelings for the new housewife, Lisa has none as she revealed she doesn’t know the newest housewife.  Lisa also recently made her TV acting debut when she guest starred on the TBS sitcom – Meet The Browns on Monday.

Sheree Whitfield – It seems Sheree has found out the hard way that starting a fashion line is never easy, as she has now decided to move on from her infamous She by Sheree fashion line.  “I’ve slowed down quite a bit,” Sheree told HoneyMag.com. “It’s a lot of work and I’ve got so many things that I’m really passionate about. Don’t get me wrong that’s my passion, but right now it’s hard trying to find the right group of people to come together and help out. You can’t do it by yourself. It takes a team. And being in Atlanta it’s very hard. If I was in L.A., if I was in New York, if I was in Paris, you have those type of like-minded people. I can’t find people with the same business sense that I have.”

Nene Leakes – The always loud outspoken Nene had quite a bit to say about the rumored upcoming Bravo housewives franchise – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  “If they do the Beverly Hills Housewives, they’ll probably be all plastic – big lips, fake tits, tummy tucks,” she told Pop Tarts. As for her favorite Bravo housewife? Nene reveals  that “Gretchen Rossi (of the O.C) is the only one that I truly, truly love,” she added. “I think she’s fun, beautiful and she’s making all the bit**es mad and I love it. Make ‘em mad girl! She has great hair; we talk all the time and just had dinner together in Beverly Hills. Did I say she has great hair?”

Kandi Burruss – Blogger SandraRose recently reported that Kandi’s newly opened boutique store, Tags, might be going out of business very soon.  According to the blogger, business has been slow for the store, which opened last November. The blogger also claimed the store was being closed during business hours and phone calls were going unanswered.  Kandi however denied this story in an interview with AJC.  “Our store is doing very very well,” she said, while also acknowledging that January was slow but that’s a traditionally quiet month for clothing retail anyway. Kandi revealed November and December were very strong and that the boutique just added online shopping as well at www.tagsatl.com.

The 3rd season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is scheduled to begin filming next month. The housewives will reportedly become the highest paid Bravo Housewives at the rate of $150,000 each, which makes sense considering their series is the most watched.

Ready or not, here they come! Some of our favorite and not so favorite Bravo Housewives are set to bring their drama onto the popular game show – “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Eighteen of the Housewives are set to appear on the show February 22 – 26 as they team up with real-life housewives for a special presentation of “The Real Housewives of Millionaire.” Housewives from all four casts – New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Orange County – will participate.

Andy Cohen, Executive Producer of the Housewives’ franchise will sit in via Skype as the expert for the “Ask The Expert” lifeline all week. Not to worry though as the Bravo housewives will not be without any help.  They will actually be paired in the hot seat with the contestant housewives to help them answer the trivia questions.

The Housewives that will be teaming up with contestants include New Jersey cast members Caroline, Dina, Jaqueline and Teresa; New York cast members Kelly, LuAnn, Ramona, Alex and Jill; and Atlanta housewife, Kandi. Celebrity questions will then be presented to the contestants by Orange County Housewives Vicki, Lynne, Jeana, Gretchen and Tamra, as well as Danielle from the New Jersey cast and Lisa and Sheree from Atlanta.

Jill Zarin of the NY Housewives talked about her excitement in doing the show – “I’m really excited to be here. I bet I’m the only one who really watches the show on a regular basis. I watch it every day. I TiVo it and watch it at night. I do. And then when I got asked to be on the show, I died. It was like dying and going to heaven.”

Dina Manzo of NJ was nervous and hoped to get a lot of pop culture questions.  “I’ve been too busy to get ready, that’s why I’m so afraid. I could redecorate the whole set with my eyes shut, but I’m scared to answer these questions. I just hope she has a good sense of humor, my partner,” said Dina.

Spark St. Jude/The Sunday Paper

The third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is set to begin filming next month, and the rumor mill is already going out of control. The main questions on everyone’s minds are who will be joining the cast, and who will be getting the axe?

The first question seems to have been answered as several Atlanta bloggers are reporting Celebrity Power Attorney Phaedra Parks will be the latest “Housewife” to join the cast. Blogger Thea from Straightfromthea.com was the first to report this. According to Thea, she called Phaedra to confirm this news and though Phaedra did not confirm or deny the news, her reaction to the question was apparently confirmation enough.

But of course, with joining a hit show like the Real Housewives franchise comes some negativity as well. People are already starting to dig us skeletons about Phaedra, and blogger SandraRose.com alleges Phaedra is a “groupie” who has always wanted to date or be close to celebrities. There’s also an unconfirmed story about Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida, having some past troubles with the law.

Kim Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, also confirms Phaedra will be joining the cast. According to Jonathan, Lisa Wu Hartwell will likely be the one to get the axe, but his sources reveal it could also be Sheree Whitfield.

What’s clear is Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes and Kim have signed on for Season 3. And although NeNe and Kim were demanding significantly more money to do the show, in the end, Jaxson reveals they each got about $150,000 each, a 50 percent raise from the $100,000 they each received to do Season 2.

Bravo is expected to make an announcement on Monday regarding the show’s cast.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta have spent the past few months out of the spotlight following their highly rated dramatic 2nd season, but that is all about to change soon as their 3rd season will begin filming in the upcoming weeks.

What is clear is Kandi Burruss, the fan favorite, will definitely be returning. What is not clear is who will be getting the axe for the 3rd season. This seems to be causing some drama amongst the cast as an “insider” spilled some not so nice things about Kandi to Atlanta blogger – Sandra Rose.

According to this insider, “Kandi’s attitude has taken an abrupt 180 degree turn and she now believes she is the star of the ‘Housewives’. In fact, the closeness between Kandi and the show’s producers has the other cast members so on edge that they have drastically altered their lifestyles out of fear of being kicked off the show.”

The insider also reveals the other housewives are jealous because the producers of the show have been going to Kandi to get her input on adding a new housewife. Apparently, a lot of women are dying to get on the show as more than 30 Atlanta-based industry execs, socialites and D-list celebs have interviewed for the role of ‘housewife’ on season 3. The prospects include former Soap star Victoria Rowell, who has surprisingly expressed a desire to join the show. She is said to be the front-runner.

Also coming this third season, Kim Zolciak will be revealing her bisexuality. She has broken things off with Big Poppa and has been dating a female DJ who goes by the name of DJ Tracy Young. Things are said to be very serious between the two, and there have even been rumors of marriage. Nene Leakes is also said to be going on a crash diet, and is apparently afraid that she might be the one on the chopping block.

A photo of Kim with new girlfriend DJ Tracy Young Here!

According to the report, no one will know who’s getting the axe until the right before the 3rd season begins filming.

Kandi also took to her twitter page to deny the claims made in the story and expressed her desire to have all her fellow cast members return to the show. -

“So i just saw that B.S. on the blog 2day about me throwing my cast mates under the bus to producers. dont believe that mess

4 the record i want @neneleakes @kimzolciak @lisawuhartwell & @iamsheree 2 all stay bcuz they make the show hot!”

Easy to see why she is the fan favorite. I believe Bravo might surprise us and actually keep all the women while adding a 6th housewife. However, I do believe if anyone will be getting the axe, it would be Lisa Wu Hartwell, while likable, she had the most boring storyline last season.
