While The Real Houseflies of Atlanta are in the middle of their new season, NeNe Leakes appeared on Thursday’s episode of The Talk where she spoke about her divorce and reconciliation with ex-husband Gregg.
“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,” she said on the show.
“I am not sure if Gregg was ready to see me as his wife out in the forefront, making my own money, doing my own thing. That was very difficult for him and I felt like Gregg wasn’t doing all there things that he should be doing as a husband, and I decided to divorce Gregg.”
As you may already know
Grape Ape NeNe has been all over Hollywood booking gigs on shows like The Apprentice, Glee and now has a regular role on NBC’s The New Normal. I won’t blame you if you didn’t know — you may have been spending hours on PartyBingo.com.
“Because I can’t handle that! Because I am so vocal, I felt like I was accused of doing something wrong in our relationship… and actually it wasn’t me, to be honest, Gregg did something I did not approve of,” she did reveal.
She did announce that things have gotten better between the two of them and they are attempting to make it all work once again. “Yes, we legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together,” she says.
Well good for them. I hope Ryan Murphy keeps cranking out these hoodrat roles for NeNe, so she and Gregg can shine bright like her veneers! You can watch a video clip of The Talk episode using the video below.
