‘I Picked Mine Up There:’ Gregg Leakes Dishes On Meeting Wife, NeNe, During Her Days As An Exotic Dancer
After a few of the Atlanta housewives and their hubbys took a group trip to the strip club last season, it became pretty obvious this particular group of men spend quite a bit of time at exotic dance clubs. So during their recent appearance on “The Bethenny Show,” Bethenny pried a little and questioned whether or not they believe strip clubs are a form of cheating.
“No,” Peter, Apollo and Gregg answered unison.
“Absolutely not,” Peter added. “That’s like our office,” he continued. “Guys go and meet at strip clubs. We’re not there to pick up the girls. It’s just that that’s the environment that we want to be in.”
Speaking of strip clubs, RHOA star NeNe Leakes has never been shy about revealing that she worked as a stripper in the past. And apparently, her hubby, Gregg, has no issues with admitting that’s where he picked her up, either.
“I picked mine up,” Gregg said raising his hand. “She used to work there [at the strip club] and when I went there and I saw her… That’s not where I met her. She invited me to her job and I graciously accepted.”
Phaedra, who was a part of the live audience for that particular episode also chimed in on the strip club discussion.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I represent some of the hottest adult entertainers in Atlanta and have been for almost 20 years now,” said Phaedra. “I have no problems with [my husband frequenting the strip club]. I frequent them myself to visit my clients as well. It’s not considered sleazy in Atlanta to go to a strip club because it’s probably 50/50 men and women there at all times as patrons.”
Though the fellas spoke freely about their strip club excursions, they say that going in the boom-boom rooms with a dancer is absolutely off limits.
“You can’t go to the boom-boom room,” Gregg said as the rest of the men nodded in agreement.
