Nene Leakes admits in a new interview that she's considered leaving her cancer-stricken husband Gregg in this difficult time. 

Gregg is currently fighting stage 3 colon cancer. Typically about half of patients with stage 3 colon cancer beat it.

Nene gave a stunningly honest interview with Us Weekly - where she talked about how difficult it has been standing with Gregg as he fights for his life.

In the interview, the Atlanta Housewife admitted that she's contemplated LEAVING Gregg, especially when she feels overwhelmed.

Here's what she told the magazine:

“I go to his appointments, and some of them he takes himself, you know, when he’s not too weak. He’s always trying to get back to driving. Then he has a friend that will take him if I’m working, or I’m out of town. We have someone that’ll take him, or our son will take him, so we have a support system, you know, in place, but I go with him as much as I can.”

“Yeah, I have Cynthia and Marlo, and I definitely have talked to, and you know, listen, I never knew that I would need a support system, but let me tell you, I need a f—king support system because so many people look at me and they say, ‘Oh, she’s so strong. She got this, you got this NeNe. I mean, God wouldn’t have put it on you guys if they knew you guys were strong, they knew you could handle it. Gregg has the perfect life, they can handle this. I’m like, ‘No, no, no, no bitch. I’m weak. Please come over here and support me.’

We’re not that strong. There’s a lot of things happening over here. There’s been days when I felt like I can’t do this anymore. Like I’m gonna have to leave Gregg, I cannot be with him anymore. Like, I’ve had every thought, because it’s been so difficult, and he’s not been the easiest patient in the world, so I’ve just felt everything. I need a support system, trust me on that.”
