“My husband is transitioning to the other side,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum told the visitors at her Linnethia Lounge in Duluth, Georgia, on Saturday, August 28 after somebody came at her for not giving them a birthday holler.
“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now,” the Glee veteran said. “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.’”
Her confession was recorded and posted in social media on Sunday. NeNe also posted an image which says “Broken” with a broken heart emoji and praying hands. There was no caption in it, but the comment section promptly sent their sympathy.
Greg had been determined to have Stage III colon malignancy in 2018, and he was abating for a very long time. In June, NeNe uncovered to PEOPLE that her significant other was going through a medical procedure to manage the malignant growth’s return, and he suddenly remained in the clinic for about a month and a half after.
“I feel like the day they told me that he had cancer, I feel like I lost my husband. I prayed so many nights, ‘Just please give me back my husband because I do not have a partner right now.’ And you realize all the things that your partner really did, like, he, … I don’t really know who has my cable. I mean, seriously, I don’t even know who the damn yard people are. …”
“And those are the kind of the things that Greg really took care of, so now I’m walking around like, ‘OK, now wait. I don’t want nothing to go off up in here, where do you pay this at? Where does this go?” she said.
NeNe and Greg’s relationship are on and off. They initially married in 1997 and divorced in 2011 but remarried in June 2013. They have been together for more than 20 years now.

Praying hard for Nene Leakes and Greg. I just lost my grandfather to cancer and watching him deteriorate in such a short time was devastating and astonishing at the same time. #PrayersUp— Bobbi Nicole, LE (@bobbidoll_) August 30, 2021
