NeNe Leakes of 'RHOA' Says Her Husband is 'Transitioning to the Other Side'

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum Nene Leakes recently revealed that her husband is dying of cancer.

The reality star was spotted at her Atlanta lounge, The Linnethia, on Saturday night and was recorded telling her patrons that her husband was “transitioning to the other side.”

Leakes told her patrons this news after she was called “rude” for not wishing one of the patrons a happy birthday.

In a video posted on @its_onsite on Instagram, the 53-year-old tells the patrons, “My husband is transitioning to the other side,” before turning to the people who called her rude.

“You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now,” she told them.

“When people approach and say, ‘You’re rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday,’ my husband is at home dying. I don’t want to say ‘Happy birthday,’ okay?” she continued.

NeNe’s husband, Gregg Leakes, 67, was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2018 and went into remission after treatment, but in June of 2021, NeNe revealed that his cancer had returned.

Since the occurrence at the lounge, NeNe posted an image to her Instagram which read “Broken.”

There have been no further updates on Gregg Leakes’ condition.
