Sad news

In true NeNe fashion, her news was optimistic and brave. She shared a picture of her husband, Gregg Leakes, 63, sitting on a chair in front of a screen with the words cancer written across it.

But her caption said ‘our new normal’, ‘you got this’, and ‘I love you’, all signs that nothing can break the fighter in NeNe. We love that!

Staying strong

The 50-year-old reality star and her family have been going through a rough patch lately with Gregg’s health.

In May, she had to cancel appearances for her comedy show because of her husband’s extended stay in hospital. A very sober-looking NeNe told her followers that her husband had been hospitalized for 15 days straight.

Love and light to the Leakes

The Leakes family is currently withholding information on the nature and extent of the cancer. But it is clear that they will be getting all the help they need at the University of Texas affiliated MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Our thoughts are with NeNe and her family. We applaud her strength.
