During a brand new interview with HollywoodLife, NeNe Leakes opened up about her husband Gregg’s cancer diagnosis, explaining how it has affected her and the rest of their family! Here’s what the RHOA star had to say!
The woman started by mentioning that ‘Gregg’s doing good. He is doing really well. Right now he is in a place trying to decide if he wants to do chemo or holistic or both of them together. He did a PET scan, and it showed that there is no cancer, but there are probably cells floating around in his bloodstream.’
As for the emotional toll the diagnosis has taken on everyone who loves Gregg, the reality TV star explained that ‘It definitely does affect the whole family. You really do not know what that feeling is until it finally hits close to home. It has been so hard on Gregg and I’s marriage.’
It has obviously not been easy on anyone, especially not on NeNe’s husband but the woman told the outlet that he has days when he feels triumphant in the face of the illness.
‘Gregg has had those days when he’s just sat at home, crying, but you have got to just continue to live when you feel like it. I feel like personally, Gregg’s already beat cancer. I mean, he has. He looks amazing, and he has lost a lot of weight. He has changed his diet. He is plant-based.’
The last time we saw Gregg on RHOA was during yesterday’ episode, and he was under the weather as NeNe was coming back on the comedic stage for the very first time since his cancer had been discovered.
Of course, as you know, the episodes are filmed months in advance, so it’s great to hear such a positive update on Gregg’s battle.
