NeNe Leakes sta rendendo pubblicamente omaggio al suo defunto marito, Gregg Leakes. NeNe e Gregg si sono sposati per la prima volta nel 1997 e successivamente si sono separati nel 2010, secondo Us Weekly. Dopo che il loro divorzio è stato finalizzato e la coppia è rimasta separata per pochi anni, i due si sono ricollegati e si sono sposati ancora una volta nel 2013. Dopo il loro secondo matrimonio, a Gregg è stato diagnosticato un cancro al colon allo stadio 3 nel 2018. Gregg era in remissione per un tempo dopo aver subito il trattamento, ma nel giugno 2021 NeNe ha rivelato che il suo cancro era tornato.
