NeNe Leakes is known as one of the most explosive members of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast. After Sunday’s airing of the show, the viewing audience was left wondering about the state of Leakes’ marriage. Her husband, Gregg Leakes, had betrayed her publicly by accidentally airing their dirty laundry on Large FM Radio.
According to TheYBF, Mr. Leakes told his friend Corey King that NeNe was pretty much his product and that he invested $300,000 in her brand to make sure that she would be in the forefront of “RHOA.” Gregg also implied that if it wasn’t for the large sum of money he spent on his wife, she would not be the star she has come to be. Not only that, but he also stated his wife had become obsessed with her newfound fame and has maybe forgotten where she came from, and looking on to bigger and better things. Gregg confirmed that they were starting down the path to divorce.
Since the beginning of the season, it was apparent that there was definitely some trouble in the Leakes household. NeNe coyly danced around concerns of misplaced trust and communication issues. She didn’t even give full details of the problems she was experiencing in her marriage to close friends and other cast members. So, after her husband made the awful gaffe of being secretly recorded on Internet radio, Nene was done.
After reading transcripts of the radio “interview,” NeNe confronted her husband about his actions and the statements that he made. Mr. Leakes quickly conceded that he may have over-exaggerated the amount he claimed to have spent on his wife. His story took a hard right turn from the rant played over radio airwaves, spiraling the entertainment world into gossip mode. NeNe layed into her husband about his lies and betrayal and was unrelenting and poised as she tactfully took apart her husbands accusations, stopping only to remove her faux eyelashes as tears formed in her eyes and her emotions began to swell.
Mrs. Leakes has since released a statement on her blog saying, “When the person you love and trust betrays you, it has got to be one of the worst feelings. Having that moment with Gregg was so much bigger than you saw. I was really hurting!”
The tone of the recent blog post doesn’t seem to be one on reconciliation. It sounds more like a final curtain call and the end of the road for the Leakes’ 14-year marriage. There has been no absolute confirmation that either of the two has filed for divorce, so the jury is still out on where the Leakes marriage currently lies.
