NeNe Leakes Posts Emotional Message About Kim Zolciak In Wake Of Husband’s Medical Diagnosis

It seems as the door we thought was sealed is no longer closed.

NeNe Leakes and her sometimes-pal-sometimes-rival Kim Zolciak-Biermann have had their ups and downs, especially in recent months.

During the reunion for the Bravo TV series Real Housewives of Atlanta that aired last April, it seemed there was no hope for the former friends to patch things up.

But their friendship may be on the mend.

In the wake of her husband Gregg's recent cancer diagnosis, NeNe posted a snap of a care package she received from her ex Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mate. 

The gifts include some goodies from Zolciak-Biermann’s Kashmere Kollection and two books - 50 Days of Hope: Daily Inspiration for Your Journey Through Cancer by Lynn Eib and How Not to Die by renowned nutrition expert Michael Greger.


"What can i say other than THANK YOU! Thank you @kimzolciakbiermann for your thoughtful gift!" she wrote. "Opening your box is like Christmas! Just all kinds of goodies."

That is very nice.




NeNe had jumped onto Instagram on June 13 to share with her followers that her husband was beginning his battle with cancer in a post captioned, "Our New Normal and the fight begins #[F]cancer #mdandersoncanercenter #yougotthis #iloveyou."

She had posted a snap of her 63-year-old beau sitting in a doctor's office. A computer screen nearby had the word 'cancer' with a red line through it; the logo for the MD Anderson Center in Houston, Texas, which is one of the best cancer treatment facilities in the United States. 

The good news is that the cancer seems to have been removed.

She shared a screenshot of a lovely little note, also writing, “SWIPE: Thank You all so very much! Excuse how i had to type this as i am at different appts with Gregg so i just type when i can to keep you guys updated❤️ #lifeoftheleakes”.

“We have been so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support, thoughtfulness & prayers,” she also posted in the note. “Some of you have educated us on cleanses, diets and holistic healthcare. We wouldn’t know some of these things if it wasn’t for the reach we have been blessed to have. So far, Gregg is doing great! He feels good with the exception of not being able to eat a lot.... Now we have to decide whether we do chemo or not? Would you?”


A November 2017 episode of "RHOA" showed that Gregg was sent to the hospital for having a 'dangerously low' heart rate.



"First of all, I just want to say that I feel very blessed and extremely lucky to be able to do what I do. I’m so grateful that you guys purchased tickets to see me everywhere," NeNe shared in May.

"I have to cancel my Albany, New York show and my New York City Caroline’s show. Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital."


Do you think that Kim and NeNe are going to smooth things over?
