Although they’re reportedly divorced, NeNe and Gregg Leakes are apparently still behaving as though they’re married.
A “Real Housewives of Atlanta” insider told Wetpaint Entertainment that Gregg hasn’t left the proverbial building. “He’s not missing in action at all. He’s definitely part of the new season,” the anonymous source reported.
NeNe has never denied her love for Gregg, and viewers witnessed them in co-parenting action during season 4 when older son, Bryce, was arrested. However, show fans also saw NeNe being wined and dined by her business partner. Despite his lavish gifts and their often-flirtatious demeanor, NeNe maintained that her relationship with John Kolaj was just a professional one.
Former “RHOA” regular and relationship guru Tiy-E Muhammad told Sister 2 Sister that the TV cameras strained NeNe and Gregg’s marriage.
According to Tiy-E, Gregg felt things had gone too far on the show. Lines the couple had promised not to cross “were eventually erased,” he said.
NeNe’s “RHOA” BFF, Cynthia Bailey, told S2S that the two have an unbreakable bond. “I think NeNe and Gregg definitely have a comfort zone with each other,” Cynthia told S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown. “Anytime NeNe really wants to talk to someone that she really considers a true friend, she’s going to call Gregg, every single time.”
Despite their physical distance, few would deny an emotional connection between NeNe and Gregg seems to remain. Neither seems to have completely shut the door on the possibility of reconciliation. So, is there still hope?
“I think this season will be make or break for them,” the insider said. “They’re going to see if they’re better off apart or together. That will be a big part of NeNe’s storyline.”
