Gregg and NeNe Leakes

NeNe's cancer-stricken husband Gregg Leakes came out in defense of his "overwhelmed" wife after she slammed him for being "Mean, Grouchy," and "Evil" to her in social media posts last week.

After the public backlash against NeNe for her insensitive comments, Gregg took to social media to heap praise on his wife, saying "She's given so much of herself." He added that NeNe always "steps up to the plate. Something a lot of women can't do or wouldn't."

A lot of those same women dragged Gregg and NeNe on social media for wasting their time with what appears to be a stunt to boost interest in their reality TV show.

Gregg wrote:

"I never even [thought] about someday we might be in this position but here we are in the struggle of life Damn! This woman right here has put a mountain on her back and carried it with grace. She’s given so much of herself. You Nene, steps up to the plate, bats and knock it out the park every time. Something a lot of women can’t do or wouldn’t. So what she hit a wall and her cup run over! Pray for her, encourage her, lift her up. What good is tearing down gonna do? I’m not bed stricken and i’m not dying of cancer! I’m kicking cancers ass".

    In all the years we've been seeing Nene on reality t.v., I have never seen ANYTHING warm or "graceful" exude from her! I don't understand this lady b/c to me, she's vile and mean! Greg may know another side to her, but we do not get to witness it! Not knocking his love for her, but Nene should be alone, she's too...…..Nene.

    it's got to be extremely hard on both of them. i won't judge her for being human and showing her frustration. what matters is that she did NOT walk out and leave him to fend for himself. everybody gets tired and everybody needs a break. if Greg ain't mad at her, why should anyone else be concerned? they seem to have a strong union, but even strong unions can be tested. I wish the best for them and their children. *shrug*

    That’s hard and who would want to do that in front of cameras

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I just dont care for their public spat on IG. I wish him well tho.

  • Real Talk With Kizzy Rock

    One issue with being extremely strong is that everyone expects you to always be strong. Most times the most strongest people are actually very sensitive. A lot of strong people use strength as a mask to hide deep-rooted issues. I'm sure she is overwhelmed. She still has a business to run, kids,etc and a husband who needs her. I'm sure she loves him and is doing her best but caregiving is a gift, not a job. It is very overwhelming for people who carry the gift so just imagine if it does not your particular gift. I'm sure she have concerns and fears deep down not knowing the outcome. We all get burn out at times. Hold ya head NeNe and prayers for Greg.

  • iWasteTime

    I'm lost why people didn't get where she was coming from.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    She put it on Sosha Media which makes it fair game. He was tryna post something positive and then she came back with a read.That post was more likely suppose to be inspirational and she turned it into what's happening in their home. That's just my opinion...she shouldna blasted him like that on IG ...She should have told him about himself in his face.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    No one told me! Ive had 3 friends go through this and they never openly complained! Yours may not be as bad as mine I have an underbite and crossbite.. and you may be younger than me also.. the older you are the more set your bones are I guess but fuuuuggg this hurts!

  • Yui

    You poor thing!
    Maybe the aching will dissipate as you get used to it?

    Yh, I got an overbite and spacey teeth. I think I can live with it. Lol my pain tolerance is zip.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    LOL! It sounds like you could get away with the invisilign clear braces for a few months and be okay..I wish I had your teeth right now!

  • HIS4EVA

    I get it Graig, but i said what i said!

  • Coy little wink

    It wasn't that painful to me...but my pain tolerance is mad high

    Pop some pain meds or puff some la...

    Why is he even addressing this...

    Social media is so dumb...

  • Li-Wright

  • Renee26

    I like his words... Her cup runnith over and had her tellin y'all business on social media...and you forgive her and understand. Good to know he's not as ill as people thought.
    It happens every day ok

  • DroneRivers

    Social media must have gathered her up and got her together something fierce. And maybe there's also some truth to what she was saying about him being mean and evil and he felt guilty. Who knows? Lol

  • Renee26

    ? my son chose invisalign instead...about the same price and less painful

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Back in the day (it wasn't even that long ago) family members would sit at the kitchen table and work out their disagreements. Now they go on social media to do it.

    #soweird

  • Renee26

    I second that... It was messy. Ion really care about their issues. I would say the same about a regular couple...keep that mess private

  • Real Talk With Kizzy Rock

    Greg, your wife can carry a mountain on her because she’s big enough. I’m playing! ???? Talk to one another face to face not on social media.

    Right..she put herself out there and because that man is sick right now and people know how mean and evil SHE can be, this is what came of it. They didn't like...but had she kept it off IG, twitter whatever..no one would have came for her.

  • Rahab

    I did thay first and it was rough on my big gapped hirse teeth. Plastic hurt gums no matter how much I filed it down. The next steps are just as bad as getting traditional braces adjusted.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Stay off social media you wouldn't have these problems !!!!..... they both too damn old for the shyts ..... your insides is sick (cancer) but now you choose to font your frustrations ..... is that really of importance ..... to get your azz on a fb post .insta whatever....... half damn dead (literally) with some folks .... and still be posting from the hospital bed .....smh and these two past 50 ..... shid ..... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8a387dfb83ecb61a358c67d2915bd670a147882127d62e6bca24947221efc742.gif

  • Renee26

    I knew he wouldn't do right with the traditional braces... He wouldn't brush or floss properly

  • Renee26

    Wow....he says they only hurt the first 2 days after putting a new set in. He will have to wear a retainer afterwards for sure... Idk what else

  • TMW

    Until someone walks a mile in those particular shoes - caring for a chronically or terminally ill spouse - no one can say what they would or would not say or do - THANK YOU for this!

  • Notatall

    Po Nene, I mean po Greg. Well who gets the most sympathy in this situation because both are deserving of acknowledging it's not easy and it's tough. Prayers to both!

    She looks like a horse in the face...stop the fillers!

  • Yui

    Maybe I’ll look into that! ?

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I don't know if its for the show or not but some things need to be kept personal even though some men act like pure babies when they are ill and I'm talking regular cold not anything like Gregg is going through which makes some angry in which you have to have empathy and patience.

  • Real Talk With Kizzy Rock

    You are absolutely right my friend! It takes a lot! not to mention you still have the everyday normal responsibilities. I'm sure she loves her husband but truth is it is a heavy burden to carry. She also have the burden of not knowing the outcome of his situation. So rather than bash someone why not pray for their strength

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I ain’t studden no RHOA. It’s not the same

  • hi-liter

    NeNe and Greg “scenes” on the show are really weird to me....like NeNe be having this look on her face....I can’t explain it.....I don’t wanna say she doesn’t care about Greg, some people aren’t able to express empathy and/or sympathy for other people.....they just don’t know how to show it. To me, that’s NeNe.

  • imright

    this is an extremely sensitive & stressful time in their lives, they should take a break from reality tv for a while imo

  • Yvonne79

    Blah... blah....blah.......

    Shall we consider this "damage control"??

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Yep!! BULLSHYT!

  • Nik

    Yeeees! Teeth will calcify and what not.?????

  • mamidearest50

    I don't believe bravo is lying about Greg's cancer for ratings. Maybe you should explain what your comment means. Nevertheless anyone's family would be stressed out and at times emotionally unsound whether cameras are there or not. The problem or issues are with those who comment with negativity or saying things toward the couple as if they know them personally. Meaning, a vast majority of commenters are kids, teens , young 20's. Meaning it's rare that this population of people would truly understand the dynamics of Nene&Greg's situation. Oh and if none of us , adults or not haven't been through this we can't judge.

  • Reenaface

    This is why I really think that Nene should have sat this season out. Whatever sympathy she hoped to garner from the public is back firing on her. Body language is everything and she acts like his illness is an inconvenience and is cramping her style. Gregg should be off tv and somewhere resting. I can't stand to see her dragging him around all over the place.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I was just thinking the same thing! I don't get sincerity and genuineness from Nene at all. To me, her ability to be compassionate to others has been stunted or cut off.
    I see her going through the motions, but don't get that she's really feeling it.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Not the cancer the tweet.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • tintin

    Defend this checks Greg

  • Chuck

    Dumb bitches care more about tv than their own health and self worth.. Get the phuck off tv!

  • BingBangBoom

    So we just decided to believe Greg has cancer just cause he said so? It's hard to tell what's the truth and what's not.

  • Y me?

    Nene filters the hell out of a picture

  • Jussjess25

    Im tellin you! Sheesh like who is that ??

  • Jussjess25

    ????? bing I cried and everything! Them people aint sick enough to lie like that.. would they?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    What a shame that reality TV has turned families into exhibitionists, carnival side shows!

    How many couples make it on reality TV?

    People overshare, be smart like Chrissy T. and A. Curry, or even Draya or Kenya, create a brand, so you don't have to use illness, and can say goodbye to Andy, when you don't want to bring a microscope into your home, life, marriage!

  • Jethro
  • Malcom Flex

    Sorry to say he's got that deathly cancer look the next few months will tell the tale she'll be sorry about acting like a jackass.

  • Harley

    Nene’s face! Such a nasty woman. No wonder because she is so insecure!! That face app and surgery has her looking like a cartoon character! I can’t stand her attitude but looking at her face I see why she’s so angry

  • Donna

    I stopped watching all these shows, my life is so much better

  • Li-Wright

    The one convo they should be having is about money and his plans for his estate. He should have his wife and children on his PAY on death savings accounts. He should have his money put in a trust. Those cancer chemo treatments will bankrupt you.

  • Passion

    NeNe stop all the photo shopping we know what you really look like! What a miserable man... I mean woman.

  • Passion

    Estate? Gregg has an estate?

  • Passion

    Money, money, mooooooney!

  • Passion

    I wish she would filter those saggy tits!

  • Reenaface

    Yep, I wouldn't doubt it. She's been acting real black widow-ish, I wouldn't be surprised if she's just waiting for Gregg to kick the bucket.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yup he needs to get his house in order.

  • Malcom Flex

    I'm sure the man has at least a couple hundred thousand that's an estate.

  • YellowSauce

    frauds always show themselves .. she tries to make it seem like she's a good person but her monster always reveals himself .. she didn't need to do all of that on SM but she did and a grown woman wouldn't have put her personal life out there like that ... we know some things are sacred and not for everybody's ears or eyes ESPECIALLY referring to her sick husband ... she couldn't say those things to his face ??? w/o an audience .... I can't say I lost respect for her because that already happened a long time ago .... the thirst is real

  • Lovebites73

    Wow. When i watched my mother die of cancer it was hard. i felt the same feelings that Nene felt. If you have never lost a parent or spouse or friend to cancer and helped them you should just shut up. It is hard work putting up with mood swings and erratic behavior. You die along with them. I would never wish that on my worst enemy.

  • supastar

    Good for Greg. He looks good

  • Y me?

    I don't think she's ever been happy with how she looks and i'm not sure she ever will be. Her nose and teeth protrude in a way thats almost abnormal looking
