The former RHOA star gets emotional at an Atlanta lounge, sharing that her husband of 24-years is “transitioning to the other side”
The husband of former Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes is “transitioning to the other side,” she announced to patrons in an Atlanta lounge Saturday night.
Gregg Leakes, 67, was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer back in 2018. Since then he has been in remission, until a couple of months ago when Leakes announced that her husband’s cancer had returned.
During the 11th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers could see the difficulties the couple endured as they cooped with Gregg’s cancer and trying to maintain a healthy marriage.
“I hope you guys are enjoying the lounge tonight,” said Leakes before she opened up to audiences about her husband’s condition. “Please, I’m asking everybody in this lounge, I had no idea that I was going to walk in here and grab this microphone and make this announcement but I want to say this… I want to be at peace. When you see me and you see my son, give us a lot of love, okay? My husband is transitioning to the other side… You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now.”
The two have been married for 24 years and have two sons together.
