After 17 years of knowing each other, money coming in and money going, stardom coming for NeNe and sista girl taking the lead in her relationship, and Gregg claiming fame went to her head, things obviously got messy between NeNe and Gregg Leakes. After 13 years of marriage, it seemed the reality TV curse hit and before you knew it, the two were divorcing in 2011. But if you follow Real Housewives of Atlanta, you know that the two have been getting cozy with one another once again. In the latest season, Gregg seems to be head over heels for his ex, and we even had to bear witness to a conversation about whether homeboy loved her or not. Leakes made it known in a recent interview that she felt like Gregg wanted to run around and sow his oats, and once he realized he was missing out on a good thing (her), he came running back. The two are clearly so much in love once again that reports said that Gregg proposed to NeNe, possibly on New Year’s Eve, hoping she would say yes a second time around.
But it wasn’t until an interview on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night that Leakes actually opened up about the proposal, and confirmed that she was indeed going to be a bride once more. When asked if she was engaged, homegirl said, “WELL, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: ‘Will you marry me–again?’” And of course, she said yes. Looking very cute in her tweed-ish dress on Fallon’s couch, she lit up when talking about Gregg and their romantic New Year’s Eve, which included rose petals on her beach condo floor, as well as strawberries, wine, and a heart made out of stones on their bed. It’s good to see that they’re looking to work things out, but hopefully Gregg will be more secure with NeNe’s fame, because she only seems to be going up from here…Congrats again!
And on a side note, NeNe also chatted with Jimmy about folks like Donald Trump and Andy Cohen coming on his show claiming they started her career and helped to make it what it is now. When Fallon told Leakes about how Trump said such a thing, and then Andy Cohen came on his show claiming that Trump was confused, and that HE made Real Housewives of Atlanta, and in turn, shaped her career, she politely shut all that down. “Well, you know I’m friends with both Andy and Donald Trump, I’ve worked with Donald for a long time and I’ve obviously worked with Andy Cohen, but uh, NeNe Leakes started NeNe Leakes’ career.” Well, if you didn’t know, now you know!
