NeNe Leakes Steps Out With New Man and Reveals Late Husband Gregg Gave His Blessing to Move On

“Gregg and I had a very tearful conversation before his passing,” she explained. “His words to me were ‘be happy, keep smiling and he who finds you, has found a good one.'” 

In September, NeNe opened up about the loss of her husband and adjusting to her “new normal” on her Instagram Story. The couple, who first married in 1997, were together for 14 years before they divorced in 2011 only to get remarried just two years down the line in 2013.

“You know I have a whole group of people that’s coming to my house every day doing different stuff with me,” she said, “so trying to keep my mind off of, you know, the events that recently happened.”

She also unveiled a wavy blonde hairstyle and explained how it felt “good to be around other people” amidst her grief while sitting at the hair salon.

“I have good days and bad days, but yeah, they say it’s normal,” she shared. “Some days I’m up, some days I’m down. Today, I felt like going to the salon, so that was good. I normally don’t go to the salon. I usually let people come to my house. So today I decided to drive to the salon and actually sit in the salon with other women. That was good to be around other people. So yeah, good days and bad days. Pushing through.”
