Nene Leakes has been brutally honest on what it’s like being a caretaker of a person suffering from a serious disease. She opened up to a crowd at her Ladies Night Comedy Tour stop in Newark, New Jersey.
According to Reality Blurb, the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star told her the audience that there were a lot of uneasy thoughts going through her head when Gregg Leakes was dealing with his diagnosis of stage three colon cancer.
“There’s a lot of things that go through your head and people don’t know that. I want to show some love to all the caretakers. As a caretaker… It depends where your relationship is. You look at the person and think about, now, people love to say karma is a b**** and karma this and karma that. Honest to God, you look at the person and be like, ‘What is that karma?'”
She went on to reveal: “And that ain’t right. But you human and you look at the person and say, ‘You did so many different things to me, is this payback? You hope not.’ Maybe you getting it back from that time you cheated on me.’ You never know. But as a caretaker, these are the thoughts that go through your head because the medication has them on a rollercoaster ride and they lash out on you. It’s a lot.”
During the latest episodes of ‘RHOA,’ Nene and her husband have been at one of their lowest points causing the actress to even consider getting a divorce from the man she’s been with over half of her life.
When she was entertaining the idea of splitting from Gregg, she has a fear of being alone. Gregg handles all of the house maintenance.
The two seem to be in a better place now. Hopefully, they continue to work on their marriage.
