What’s Mine Is…Mine: Should NeNe Leakes Make Gregg Sign A Pre-Nup Before Tying The Knot Again?

This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta showed a very in love NeNe and Gregg taking the steps to show the world that their bond has only become tighter after officially divorcing in 2011. And this was proven when Gregg proposed to the burgeoning actress and reality TV queen a second time around (and she of course said yes). And now things seem to be going in a great direction. They’ve got their own reality show about the preparation of the wedding in the works (I Dream of Nene: The Wedding), NeNe received a huge raise for the next season of RHOA, and she’s already picked some of her bridesmaids, as we reported earlier today. But according to reports, before we can say the couple will be “happily ever after,” they’ve got to come to an agreement. Aka, somebody (Gregg) needs to sign a prenuptial agreement.  A family friend says they’re bumping heads about him signing one. The source had a lot to say.

According to Showbizspy.com:

“NeNe loves Gregg and hopes their marriage will last this time, but if it doesn’t work out she wants him to walk away only with what he’s bringing into it. She says she earned what she’s got by her­self, and is demanding Gregg sign a prenup or there won’t be a wedding.”

But according to the same source, Gregg is a bit disappointed that she would want him to sign a prenuptial agreement since he doesn’t think he has taken advantage of her in any way in the past to warrant such a move:

“He feels he has always supported NeNe. Their divorce was not about spending too much or stealing from her, so he doesn’t think he needs a piece of paper to show he won’t take advantage.”

But yet and still, NeNe doesn’t want to play the fool. “The prenup is not up for discussion. If Gregg doesn’t sign on the dotted line, NeNe won’t be saying ‘I do.”

Well, we will see about all that, because Leakes hasn’t confirmed or denied any of this information. But with all that she has going on and all the money she has been raking in recently, it doesn’t seem like a bad idea (especially since they have already divorced once). And since Gregg, a real estate investor and businessman, was struggling with his money not too long ago, it seems she just wants to take some precautions since she’ll clearly be the one bringing home a majority of the bacon. So what is a gal to do?

Do you think she should make him sign a prenuptial agreement before walking down the aisle with Gregg again?

    Come on people, are you all really this gullible. NeNe and
    Greg are partners, they fabricated this whole divorce and now married again
    situation for television, (who divorces someone and never stop hanging around
    them, just to remarry them). If you notice these people doesn’t even have an ounce
    of love connection. They are just acting for rating and to stay relevant. Just
    like Kenya, they make up a story to make their storyline interesting. And for
    all you that says NeNe is real you should really get some mental help, this
    girl is a bully that does everything in her power to make others look bad. She
    is jealous of anyone that she thinks has more than her. The only person she
    truly likes on the show is Cynthia and that because Cynthia is nothing more
    than her tagalong that agrees with everything she says and do.

    Yes. I feel NeNe should have him sign it and Greg needs to stop acting like he don’t know why she’s asking for one.
    Besides it’s not like he ain’t going to benefit we all know if NeNe eats — Greg is eating too he just won’t be able to walk up in a bank or to an ATM and withdraw a few stacks without her consent. #ThatisALL
    If I was Greg I would keep my mouth shut and sign the damn thing.

    HOnestly, I am all for it.. Let’s not forget Greg had some financial issues during their marriage, he made some bad business moves that she DID NOT know about and although NeNe may have been a housewife (stay at home mom) I hardly believe their lives was that fabulous as it was portrayed to have been — were they not renting their home?? and wasn’t their car repo’d in the beginning??

    The bottom line is this — NeNe is bringing ALOT more to the table than GeritolGreg and stands to bring even more, she would be a fool not to protect her assets.
    If I ever get married again best believe I will be issuing a pre-nup because I have a daughter who’s future I need to look out for and my assets will go to her since they were acquired while I was married to her father.
    Real Talk tho…. the people who be hollering the most against pre-nups are those who have nothing to lose BUT everything to gain in the first place.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with protecting your assets, male or female. Besides, they’ve been saying that Gregg had mismanaged money for awhile and was in some serious debt, which was why they were rumored to have divorced in the first place, so that she could protect her income. You never know what tomorrow may bring, so I say kudos to NeNe, she has a child under 18 and now a grandchild to think about.

    • kierah

      You mean grandchildren. Bryson has been busy.

    A few of the comments on here don’t make any sense. First of all Star Jones’ ex-husband has and makes his own money as does Stedman, secondly, NeNe was very well taken care of prior to being on RHoA (she’s even admitted that), by Gregg and at no time has she accused him of spending their money recklessly. A prenuptial agreement is a good thing for people that don’t really know each other but after being married 18 years and divorcing and not having 1 issue during that divorce, I find it insulting to remarry someone after all that history and think that now I need to protect myself…from what? He appears to really LOVE her and I don’t think he’s remarrying her for money.

      If they didn’t have “one” issue during the marriage surely they wouldn’t have divorced. Does that make any sense to you?

      • MLS2698

        She needs to get her head checked for even trying to ” re-marry ” this guy. Its like a dog returning to it’s vomit!

  • autumn

    People are so willing to throw in the towel for “irreconcilable differences” these days it’s a shame. By all means don’t be naive but if I can’t trust you with money before walking down that isle, I definitely wouldn’t do it after!! If not abuse or infidelity, I am fighting for my marriage!! If you are questioning marrying someone over some money, you certainly don’t seem ready to take those vows.I would be more concerned about how someone reacts in hard times and if I became gravely ill what they would do!! But money, really?

  • flatbrokewoman

    Good for her! She is not being swept up in this wedding and forgetting to handle business.

  • http://www.facebook.com/nieshag Niesha Gourdine

    wow… now that she is all big now, she think somebody wants her money, but when she wasn’t nothing, he was taking care of her for most of her life… money really does change people. I know he feels so hurt..

    • http://www.facebook.com/nieshag Niesha Gourdine

      if it was anyone else.. then yes, but not greg, he most likely invested thousands if not a mill on her,

    • Nia

      When he got with her she was a stripping single mother and he had money. He didn’t ask her for a prenup now she wants to ask him for one when it’s his money that got in place to even get on RHOA. Don’t do it Greg!

      • http://www.facebook.com/nieshag Niesha Gourdine

        exactly!!

  • scandalous7

    that prenup is a MUST

  • Ladybug94

    Should Nene? That decision is strictly up to her, it’s her money.

  • SHAUN

    YES SHE DOING THE RIGHT THING CONSIDERING SHE PROBABLY PURCHASED HER OWN RING HE AINT MAKING NO MONEY LIKE THAT, ITS FUNNY HOW HE TURNED HIMSELF AROUND AFTER SHE STARTED RAKING IN THE MONEY CAUSE AS I RECALL HE WAS SO BITTER AND COLD TO HER ON THE SHOW THAT HE WAS NOT TRYING TO COMMUNICATE AT ALL SO YEAH NE NE GET THAT PRE NUP CAUSE I SMELL A RAT SOMETHING ABOUT GREG THATS FAKE IN MY OPINION

    • MsSunahyne77

      You sho right. I feel the same way! Its funny how a woman moves up and on and now he all up in he booty wanting to come back and re-seal the deal.

  • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

    He’s already showed himself to be untrustworthy once. IMO its a good move for men and women alike who are bringing considerable assets and future earnings to the table to require their spouse to be to sign a pre-nup.

    • GrandpaGregBETTA

      To me…a pre-nup is no different than insurance. It IS insurance against these opportunistic sociopathic SCRUBS tryna ride a lady’s coattails to financial security. Ms. Leakes may not be in the same money stats as Oprah…but DOES currently have much popularity with a hefty paycheck to match. If he doesn’t screw up (AGAIN); he might experience the stedman life. If he does….he betta ask STar Jones’ ex-husband!

      • Ladybug94

        I agree, too many people, not all, have a habit of leaving the other one high and dry and they end up having to start over from ground zero because one person ran off with everything instead of divvying it up.

  • GrandpaGregBETTA

    #Applause# to NeNe. The ol’ coot should begin each day with prayers of gratitude that this Boss even wants to be bothered with him still. I recall her ‘Sister2Sister’ article where she’d stated ‘I’m not very sexual’. Yet she remained. Even when on the BET show, he went on the radio and was put on Front Street for implying he was the financial anchor of the relationship – she remained. She made her point by dropping him….and for whatever reason is behind her taking his octogenerian butt back—-he BETTA go with the program or get the heck on! I too….would wanna protect my assets. Ask Judge Mathis if Grandpa Greg would be the first brotha tryna ride his lady’s coattails to financial security. Ask Terry McMillan. Anyone who disagrees with NeNe’s saavy caution…..needs to hurry up and catch the 1949 Ferry…… to 2013. This is how it is Folks!
