Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is never one to shy away from speaking her mind. The longtime Housewifefaces a lot of challenges this season, from the return of nemesis and new mother Kenya Moore, to continuing her feud with onetime friend Cynthia Bailey.
The “I said what I said” peach is now giving her castmates a rest from the drama and sounding off about her longtime marriage to husband and cancer survivor, Gregg Leakes. And although Nene has been absent from the first two episodes of RHOA season 12, She’s planning to make up for lost time with some eyebrow-raising revelations about her current state of errr, affairs.
As Nene recently told Entertainment Tonight, “We’re just really having a grown-up, adult conversation about open marriages,” NeNe explains, clarifying that she and Gregg do not currently have an open marriage. “Of course, I wouldn’t want to have an open marriage and, if it really got to that point, I’d probably give Gregg the peace sign, but people have had a lot of things to say about our relationship.”
She went on to say, “Our relationship is great!” She continued, “I mean, we’ve been together forever, but I’m with Gregg because I want to be with Gregg, don’t get it twisted. If I did not want to be with Gregg, I would not be with Gregg, and I would tell Gregg very openly. You know, I don’t hold my tongue about stuff.” Yes, we know!
After the last season of Nene openly struggling with caring for an ailing Gregg, viewers had conflicting takes on whether or not Nene was a long-suffering wife or a cold-hearted caretaker. While Nene was apologetically herself through the whole matter, she has come out of the proverbial woods with Gregg in remission and both of them becoming ambassadors for the American Cancer Society. Their marriage is stronger than ever and it seems like Nene is in a good place. Does that mean the drama will stop for Nene this season? Doubtful as Nene always seems to find a way.
