Nene Leakes is riding that reality ride to the fullest. Her new show “I Dream of Nene: The Wedding” is as popular as her role on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta where she’s been holding it down for the last 6 seasons. As of now, she is the only of the original Atlanta housewives who remains on the show. On this spinoff, airing on Bravo on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Leakes, a former stripper and single mother, is remarrying her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes, who she originally married in 1997. They reportedly met while she was still stripping. The remarriage took place in Atlanta in June, and of course Bravo cameras were there to cover it all.
Now three episodes in, Nene and Gregg are once again sparring with each other and each other’s children as they prepare to start life together…again. That’s if only Gregg can get some closet space.
“As a woman, I only have so much space in my closet,” Leakes told the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “So Gregg, he’s cool. He has a closet in the guest room. He’s happy with his closet in the guest room. He gets it.”
As for the reasons behind the split – the Leakes’ divorce was finalized in September of 2011 after the fourth season of “Real Housewives” wrapped and almost a year separation. Leakes says that the two had to reconcile some problems before they could go back to being a healthy couple.
