This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta has a different energy than ever before. NeNe Leakes’ beloved husband Gregg Leakes is suffering with cancer. Of course no one wants to see anyone suffering with cancer, but it’s especially tough to watch Gregg go through it. He is easily the most-liked person on this show and true rock to pretty much everyone in the cast. With that said, his health struggles have truly united the cast. So far.
NeNe and Gregg went down to Miami to celebrate her store opening. It was their first big trip since Gregg was diagnosed and a big deal for the couple. Porsha Williams secretly invited the Atlanta Housewives down to Miami to surprise NeNe. NeNe insisted that she does not like surprises, but this one made her very happy.
NeNe discussed the last RHOA episode in a Bravo blog post. She admitted, “When all the girls showed up in Miami to support me and Gregg, it really warmed my heart and made me feel loved.” There hasn’t been a lot of catty drama between the Housewives, but this season is gripping nonetheless. It’s actually very refreshing and compelling to see the women come together to support Gregg and NeNe.

NeNe was very brief in her blog post. This is not surprising since she has a lot going on these days, but she did write, “Thanks so much for supporting Gregg and I through one of the toughest things we’ve faced together: his health.” Everyone loves Gregg. Even the fans view Gregg as a loved one.
In other news, Porsha and Marlo Hampton squashed their beef during the last episode. They got into an extremely heated argument over a doormat last season. Yes, you read that correctly. They got into it over a doormat. Now they are sharing each other’s clothes and turning up in the club. These two have truly come a long way.
This was an unexpected plot twist to pretty much everyone except for NeNe. She claimed, “I always knew Marlo and Porsha would be cool one day! I think they share a lot of things in common; they both are super fun to hang out with and they swear they’re right about everything.” That sounds pretty spot on.
The last episode was very emotional. Marlo and Porsha’s antics blessed us all with some much-needed comedic relief.
