NeNe Leakes' Husband Gregg Leakes' Cancer Has Returned . .  And It's Bad!!

NeNe Leakes has revealed that her husband, Gregg Leakes' cancer has returned.

During NeNe's time on Real Housewives of Atlanta, we saw Gregg battling cancer and NeNe supporting him through it.

"He's been in the hospital for a week, tomorrow," she told The Jasmine Brand during an Instagram Live. "I'm sure he'll be home in about a week or so. He had to have a surgery."

"He's super small," she said. "If you've ever been around somebody who's had cancer before, he's different. He's different."


The first time Gregg had cancer, fans were hard on NeNe and felt that she treated him roughly on the show. Gregg has been diagnosed with stage three colon cancer.

"It would be easy to make a decision about divorcing Gregg if he didn't have cancer," Nene said at the time. "I don't want to live my life unhappy."

The couple managed to work things out.

The couple married in 1997 and then divorced in 2011. They then remarried June 2013.
