The Real Housewives of Atlanta diva, NeNe Leakes, is rejoicing on social media and in real life not because of something that happened on the show, but because her husband Gregg Leakes is now cancer free.
“Look at God! We are overjoyed to say we saw the doctors for the results of Gregg’s pet scan he took last week! Tests show, wait for It…..WE ARE CANCER FREE!!! Yes God!” NeNe wrote in a caption on Instagram on Monday.
Gregg, 63, had completed six months of chemotherapy to battle his stage three colon cancer.
NeNe and Gregg tied the knot in 1997 and separated in 2010. Their divorce was finalized in 2011, but the duo later reconciled and remarried in 2013. Their second wedding was featured on a RHOA spinoff titled I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
Back in June of 2018, NeNe had canceled her remaining one-woman comedy shows because Gregg had been in the hospital for more than two weeks.
“First of all, I just want to say that I feel very blessed and extremely lucky to be able to do what I do. I’m so grateful that you guys purchased tickets to see me everywhere,” she said in an Instagram video. “I have to cancel my Albany, New York, show and my New York City Caroline’s show. Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital.”
“I find it very difficult to stand on stage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money’s worth knowing that my husband is in the hospital not feeling well. He has said to me over and over again, ‘Go on, go out there, have a good time, do the show, I’m going to be fine.’ But I find it mentally very hard for me to do that,” NeNe continued. “Gregg will be out of the hospital this week. He will be stronger, he will be better and we will be out here doing this show again in no time. Thank you for loving me! Thank you so much.”
Gregg’s health issues were also documented on a November 2017 episode of RHOA when he was hospitalization for a “dangerously low” heart rate.
Gregg’s cancer changed the course of the couple’s marriage.
During his treatments, Gregg shared how much his wife was going through because of the cancer.
“I’m tired of hurting my wife who is only trying to take good care of me and wants only the best for me too. She…
