NeNe Leakes and her husband Gregg announced that they would be divorcing after fifteen years together in 2011. However, they didn’t stay apart for two long. After several months of being single, the two reunited and started their relationship over. So what caused the sudden reconciliation? NeNe told all on yesterday’s episode of The Talk.
“Gregg and I had been married for 15 years and we had issues,” NeNe explained. “As you guys know, I’m on a reality show, and a lot of the time what happens on these reality shows is that these women are married to successful men, and you’re in their shadow, and once you step out of your own shadow and away from their’s, it can start a little conflict.” The dynamic in NeNe’s relationship definitely changed once she joined the show. In fact, after signing on for the Real Housewives of Atlanta, she scored a role on Glee and then another on The New Normal.
NeNe having such a successful career may have been a change Gregg wasn’t ready for which is why it is a good thing that they are now starting fresh. Hopefully, this time around, they can make things work and learn to love each other for what they are, currently.
“We legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together,” NeNe explains, proudly. It’s so nice to see them give it another try and if fans are lucky, they’ll get to see their reconciliation play out on the show!
