Weeks After His Hospitalization, NeNe Leakes Goes Public With Gregg's Secret Medical Diagnosis

NeNe Leakes has revealed that her husband Gregg has been diagnosed with cancer, with the news coming a month after she canceled several comedy appearances while he was hospitalized.

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star took to social media on Wednesday to reveal Gregg's diagnosis.

The 50-year-old reality star shared a photo to Instagram, which shows her 63-year-old husband sitting in a doctor's office. A computer screen nearby has the word 'cancer' with a red line through it, which is the logo for the MD Anderson Center in Houston, Texas. The hospital is known as one of the best cancer treatment facilities in the United States. 

NeNe wrote in the caption of the image, "Our New Normal and the fight begins #[expletive]cancer #mdandersoncancercenter #yougotthis #iloveyou."

Leakes did not reveal the type of cancer her husband is battling.

Prayers Up for #GreggLeakes #TheQuintessentialGentleman

Prior to his hospitalization in May, an episode of "RHOA" in November 2017 showed that Gregg was sent to the hospital for having a 'dangerously low' heart rate.

Last month, NeNe told fans she would be canceling some of her comedy appearances due to her husband's hospitalization. 

"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 on Instagram.

She continued, "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."

NeNe explained her decision by writing, "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 adds, "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."

BLOOP! #NeNeLeakes’ husband Gregg has been diagnosed with cancer following several health problems! Let’s hope the #RHOA husband makes a full recovery from this disgusting disease! #FCancer #WhereIsYourScooter 🍑☕️👊🏼

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

Prayers up.
