NeNe Leakes shared the news that her husband Gregg is ‘transitioning to the other side’

NeNe, 53, was filmed addressing guests at her lounge, The Linnethia, after she was called out for not wishing a customer a happy birthday.

In the video obtained by It’s OnSite, NeNe can be heard saying: “My husband is transitioning to the other side.”

She elaborated: “You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now.

“We walked in this lounge because we had to walk in this lounge because this is our business.

“So, when people approach and say, ‘you’re rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday,’ my husband is at home dying.

“I don’t want to say ‘happy birthday,’ okay?”


Emphasising her point she added: “My husband is losing his life right now.”

She ended her update with the words: “My husband will not be here in the next couple of days.”

Back in 2018, Gregg Leakes, 66, was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer but had been on the road to recovery in recent years. 

In June, NeNe revealed the cancer had returned and asked fans to “pray for Gregg”.

Gregg and Nene wed in 1997, divorced in 2011 and then remarried in June 2013.

Fans saw the toll Gregg’s cancer treatment took on him physically and mentally as the show documented his journey during season 11. 

‘TRANSITIONING’

In April 2019, NeNe confessed that she considered getting a SECOND divorce from Gregg due to his “attitude towards her” while he was undergoing chemotherapy.

She previously opened up about how difficult it was to take care of her husband during his illness, saying: ”It’s very, very hard to be a caretaker.

“People call and they say, ‘How’s Gregg doing?’ and I want to throw the phone and say, ‘How the f**k am I doing? I’m going crazy over here, Gregg is wearing me out!’ 

“I am not good at this s**t! I would rather hire somebody. Gregg doesn’t wants me to hire somebody.

“But I’m just not good. I’m not good at fluffing the pillow; I’m good at buying the pillow.”
