Nene Leakes Gives Update On Gregg's Health Battle After Announcing His Medical Diagnosis

Season ten of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” didn’t have the best ratings; most of the drama revolved around Kim Zolciak bickering with everyoneeeeee.

But another focal point of the show was Nene's husband, Gregg Leakes', ongoing health issues including him being hospitalized. 

Wow, how scary!

NeNe recently opened up about the medical woes on Instagram. 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, which is the logo for the MD Anderson Center in Houston, Texas—one of the best cancer treatment facilities in the United States. 

She captioned this, "Our New Normal and the fight begins #[expletive]cancer #mdandersoncancercenter #yougotthis #iloveyou."

Take a look below: 




Well, good news! NeNe has an update. And the cancer was 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?”

NeNe also made it a point to highlight the names of all the housewives who had reached out to them. Sheree Whitfield’s was noticeably missing. And many were shocked to see Kim Zolciak's named listed tho!

An episode of "RHOA" in November 2017 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 wrote in May, explaining why she had to pull the plug on a few performances. 

"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."


"I find it very difficult to stand on stage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money’s worth knowing that my husband is in the hospital not feeling well. He has said to me over and over again, ‘Go on, go out there, have a good time, do the show, I’m going to be fine.’ But I find it mentally very hard for me to do that."


She added, "Gregg will be out of the hospital this week. He will be stronger, he will be better and we will be out here doing this show again in no time. Thank you for loving me! Thank you so much."


NeNe and Gregg originally married in 1997 before divorcing in 2011. However, they subsequently reunited and wed a second time in 2013.  


Well, we are continuing to send positive thoughts and prayers to the Leakes Family!
