If you are a fan of Bravo’s hit TV series, Real Housewives of Atlanta, then you’re among the masses who know NeNe Leakes well. This loud-mouthed cast member has been sporting a new look, which has the entertainment industry in an uprise.
While doing press in Los Angeles, California, NeNe was seen without her wedding ring, and sources confirm that her 14-year long marriage to Greg Leakes has ended. The Leakes family has endured much drama in recent months, and sources say the divorce is just a culmination.
Last March, NeNe’s son Bryson was arrested for possession of marijuana. As the story goes, he was visiting a friend in jail when a routine background check found him guilty for unpaid tickets. After being handcuffed and taken into custody for this charge, a full body searched was conducted, wherein a small amount of the drug was found in the pocket of his jacket.
When it rains it pours, right? Well, soon after her son was arrested, the cheating rumors commenced. The first accusation pointed to NeNe having an affair with NFL New Orleans Saint’s player, Charles Grant.
NeNe has crushed the rumors on various blogs and talk shows, simply stating that she has had no relations with the pro football player and that he’s an acquaintance she met while hosting a charity event.
Gregg, NeNe’s husband, has faced cheating rumors as well. NeNe took to her blog to explain the situation to her fans:
“Gregg and I have held it together for years, but my breaking point has come. I’m one hell of a woman, and I am nobody’s fool. 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! I felt Gregg was an emotionless wall that was cold with no remorse. The pain in my stomach was unreal, and my heart was heavy! I had been accused of cheating and doing Gregg wrong in the press and on blogs everywhere. I wanted to spit it all out and say some horrible things, but I wanted to handle this situation like a lady as best I could.”
For all parties’ sake, I hope this divorce doesn’t get ugly. NeNe confesses in her blog post that each of them has skeletons in their closet and that she hopes that it doesn’t come down to their private matters becoming public knowledge. But isn’t this the point of a reality show?
