Guess How Much Nene And Gregg Spent On Their Second Wedding??

June 26, 2013  |  

Let’s just get into it: $1.8 million. That’s how much Nene and Gregg (or Andy Cohen and Bravo TV) spent on the spectacle that was The Leakes’ second walk down the aisle this past weekend. Curious where all that money went? Well according to Life & Style, Gregg presented Nene with a 10-carat diamond band to go along with her 15.2-carat engagement ring so that’s a hefty chunk of the budget right there. Factor in all 400 of the couples’s guests, which included everyone from Fantasia Barrino and Vivica A. Fox to reality TV stars like “Hollywood Exes'” Andrea  Kelly and a couple ladies from the “Real Housewives” franchise,s and the fact that Nene sparred no expense on the lavish Old Hollywood themed event and there you have it — a nearly $2 million affair.

Nene told Life & Style before the wedding:

“I feel amazing. Both of us want this, so it will definitely work this time. I know exactly what I’m getting myself into.

“I came up with the idea of having an Old Hollywood theme because I thought it would be completely fabulous and everyone would be able to have fun with it “I just did it my way!”

Factoring into the exorbitant wedding cost was a $20,000 Pnina Tornai dress Nene changed into for the reception and the white Gabriella Arango gowns her nine bridesmaids wore. Guests were also served southern comfort food like  homemade biscuits, mac ’n’ cheese, shrimp and grits, and fried chicken, and for the wedding cake, Nene ordered up a 10-tier cake filled with vanilla cream.

On a more sentimental note, Nene shared with Life & Style that her sons Brentt Leakes and Bryson Bryant were the ones who walked her down the aisle, and for her that was one of the most special parts of the day.

“That was so emotional for me. And Gregg telling me I was beautiful — that was really special. I had a lot of teary moments.”

    Money wasted indeed, yet the elderly some of them are STILL trying to decide IF to pay the rent/mortgage OR pay for their much needed medicine, the USA veterans are still trying to figure out what is in store for them for medical care, the folks are still placing their covers under the bridge or on the park bench at night HOPING the next day will be better…Therefore I will continue to utilize by donating my extra dollars to assist the less fortunate b/c you NEVER know who will need help NEXT……..Yes I said that, “”ONE”” marriage is enough, learn from it.

    Congratulations to them. I would rather see a couple celebrating love then an article about it falling apart and a whole bunch of messy drama. Good for them..may God bless them!

  • LadiesNight

    I don’t believe they were divorced to begin with,it was all for t.v.

    • They really did get divorced. Word on the street is that Gregg’s business ventures were going belly up and Nene wanted to protect her newly gained assets from being attached while Gregg filed bankruptcy.
