After handily skirting around the issue earlier in the day on Today, Nene Leakes was apparently saving the good news for her pal Jimmy Fallon, who finally got her to confirm that she is once again engaged!
It took some pestering and a bunch of photos that Nene tweeted on New Year's Eve for Jimmy to make his case, but eventually after showing the world his slate of evidence, he cut to the chase. "You start tweeting out these photos ... So, I'm going, 'Are you engaged?' Can you say something?" Jimmy asked. Nene's response?
"Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: 'Will. You. Marry. Me. Again?'" Nene slowly recited, eventually answering that she said yes, prompting Jimmy to bust out of his seat in excitement. Watch the fun moment:
NeNe and Gregg met in 1996 and later married, but divorced in 2011 -- though it seems the two have worked things out and are back on their way to wedded bliss.
Earlier in the day, NeNe was on Today with Kathy Lee and Hoda, but when they asked about the tweets, she just said that fans will "just have to tune into the ‘Housewives’ and see." Well played, Jimmy Fallon!
Oh, and speaking of tuning into Housewives, Real Housewives of Atlanta is back big time this Sunday night!
Hey Nene yes I'm so happy for you and Greg you go gril get yours wish I new you personaly so I could party with you. So the best and congratulation to you and Greg and please stay out of the Phaedra aka (Ms fake ) and Kenya aka Ms. gwtw) 's mess love your style keep it up
If that's what they want, then I'm happy for them. He knew and loved her before she was famous and that's better than someone coming along and getting with her for her money. I like NeNe, although there were a couple of seasons I thought she needed to get over herself. Best wishes to the both of them.
Congratulations girl!! I have to admit. I did not like you at all a couple seasons ago. When I finally got cable I started watching. I thought you went off on Kim for no reason. However, as I have watched I have changed my opinion. You have gone from ghetto to glam! ... can I say that? Congratualations on playing you cards right and all your recent success!!
YYYEEEAAAHHH!!!! it's about time!!! Congrats!!! I am a preachers wife and I luv me some NENE. Greg is funny this season. Well it's nothing better than new energy!!! Congratulations and many blessings to you both!!!!
Nene, I believe u r spinning your wheels. The easy thing to do when u r newly divorced is to cling to the familiar and forget what brought u to this place. Greg is putrid! Plain and simple. If u remarry him it is just throwing more good to the bad. You have a whole new arena in which to "shop around" I don't really care for your attitude, but u deserve better than greg. MOVE ON!
Congratulations to you and Greg. I sincerely hope that it works out for you two this time. You seem much happier since you and Greg got back together. But when you have papers on each other, things usually change and you fall back into the same situation that you had the first time unless you have worked out the problems that caused you to get divorced in the first place. I hope that you two have worked out those problems and this time you and Greg will have a long and happy life together. You are more fun to watch when you are happy as opposed to the unhappy, loud mouthed, onry person that you were. Stay happy because you wear it well!
Love You Nene and Greg. I am very Happy for you and your sons. I watch everything I can that you are on and still ;not enough Nene. I do not think you got a big head that confidence is attratice
i am happy for you long life and happiness i wish for you and Gerg
i remember Nene sitting in her kitchen yelling at Gregg...You did me wrong!! why would she give him another chance!?!?!
@jaxhunt because sometimes, it's better to be with the devil that we know than the angel that we don,t know. Just my thoughts
jaxhunt because some people have SENSE and try to work out their marriage; instead of throwing away all those years......
The choice to do what she is doing in relation to her husband and marriage comes with experience and wisdom............ IMO
jaxhunt Sometimes, like my ex, people understand that "you don't miss the water 'til the well runs dry," which my Mother used to say. My ex-husband regrets what he's done, but it hurt too badly for me to risk being that hurt again. However, NeNe must believe her husband realizes his faults and will not hurt her again.
Either Gregg is a securtiy blanket for her or he has found a way to hitch himself back on the gravy train. NeNe is to be gvien kudos for moving from "reality" to mainstream television. However, I suspect in the end her ego is going to be her downfall. We will hear about her money troubles and so forth. Kids don't belong on these shows because enough damage is done to families just by how the adults act for all the world to see.
CONGRATS NeNe and Gregg!!!! I love you guys together and I'm truly ecstatic that NeNe got her happy back. Go head Gregg, he got his woman back and family. I just pray he has the right intentions.
NeNe is branding herself and it's working. She has moved beyond RHOA. She still has something to offer on the show. I would like to see her sons more. Parenting is one of the most important things we do in life. I would like to see each housewife's interaction with their children a bit more. No one liked it (including me) when NeNe said she was rich. As she continues to reinvent herself she becomes marketable in mainstream America. NeNe has an appeal and obviously some folks in Hollywood are extending opportunities and she's getting paid. I admire her for that. I would be cautious when it comes to remarrying her former husband. What's his motive? She's making money. What does he do? I owuld advise her to stay together if she cares that much about him but don't bring legalities into it. Stay single NeNe. Do what a man would do. Have your cake and it it too.
NeNe has lost my interest totally. I don't find her appealing, amusing or entertaining. In other words, NeNe has been seen and heard enough IMHO.
