Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes held nothing back about her husband Gregg during a recent episode of the RHOA After Show. And, even though she admits he is a “good guy,” she wanted to make it clear he was not perfect.
“I go home with Gregg honey; I sleep with Gregg honey. So I know what the f–k Gregg really is. I know every hair on his body, OK?” said Nene.
She went on to admit that they fought constantly when the RHOA cast went on vacation to Tokyo. And, even though Nene needed Gregg’s support, he wasn’t there.
“A lot of people think that he’s such an angel, and I’m not saying that he’s not. He’s a sweet guy; he’s a good guy … but he’s a f–king a–hole when he wants to be,” explained the reality star.
It makes sense that Gregg lets his guard down when he is behind closed doors with his wife. As fans know, Gregg received a colon cancer diagnosis last June, and it has been an emotional struggle for the couple that has caused some tension.
According to The Daily Dish, Gregg even apologized for taking out his frustrations on Nene and explained that we hurt the ones we love because they allow it. But he is “tired” of hurting his wife.
The cancer diagnosis drastically changed Gregg and Nene’s lives. He has had to undergo multiple treatments and a surgery, and she has become his caregiver. They haven’t let this situation break them, and they have given back by helping other couples in the same situation.
The couple has also become the newest American Cancer Society Ambassadors to help in the fight against the disease. According to the American Cancer Society website, they have a volunteer network that encourages leaders “to take real steps” in the cancer fight, and the Ambassadors play a crucial role and make a large impact when it comes to developing relationships with elected officials. Being an Ambassador requires a two-year commitment.

Gregg also started the charitable website can-sir.org, which Nene says is an effort to bring “more awareness to this dreadful disease called CANCER!”
Gregg and Nene Leakes donate all of the proceeds from the site to the American Cancer Society.
