Gregg Leakes

Gregg shares his thoughts on the prenup, the bridesmaids, and the new wedding planner.

on Oct 10, 20130

Tonight’s show was packed with action. The prenup is something I don't see the need for, since we're not going to ever divorce again. A long time ago, remember when I had the cash and I was king, I didn't even think about such a thing. Things WERE different back then. I realize we know each other a whole lot better now since our divorce and the battles we went through. We went through some real sh--! I just feel like when we divorced, we didn't have a prenup then, and yes we went through it, but our disagreement was never over who got what or who paid what. So to me, a prenup is for what? But OK, I get it. If it makes you feel better about preventing future arguments, so be it, bring on the prenup. Truth is, WE WILL NEVER USE IT!
 
Did Peter give me good advice? Actually he did and I really did appreciate it. His advice helped me to say out loud the many things I know I failed in doing in this marriage. Although, his take on a prenup was a non-issue with him. I get it people. I get it!!! Bring the damn thing! Now let’s move on toward our wedding day. That’s e-nup already!

The whole thing is just pathetic, over the years Nene turned this man into puppet and it makes me sad to  looking at him obeying to her every move. It's sad what fame and money can do to people. Let's be real whatever happened between them the first time around Nene left him because she  thought she could do better than Gregg but now she's taking him back because she was faced with reality.

Gregg the pre nup is where you lost a lot of female fanship.......and then this blog, which makes no sense at all....you will "never" divorce again?  How does anyone know what will happen in the future?  Statements like that just make no sense....maybe Nene will want to divorce you....did you think of that? of course you did, which is why you made the pre nup an issue, and so you would have a bone of contention for a show...we all know that....look, if your woman doesn't stop bragging about what she has, she isn't going to have anything for long, because viewers are so fickle....we might have liked the novelty of a character like Nene, but, it wears on you....when you come home tired from work, spent your entire pay check on bills and still can't buy that new car.....turning on the tv and hearing a woman boast about all that she is given because she verbally lashes out at people who think it's funny makes you want to retch.....so, you two need to go back to the table with a plan ready for the next phase.....judging from the remarks here, I can tell this show didn't go over well....I had a hard time watching it, and still have not been able to sit through an entire show.....simply not entertaining...sorry....

Greg,  I must say I see that you have some swagger and common sense.  I hope you do right by Nene and your family this time around

Congrags on your 2nd time around!  I truly seen the love when the Judge said, "you may kiss the bride", and not only did you two kiss, you kissed over and over again.  It showed me how much love was in this marriage. I like the old school "G" too, and  get it.  Old School "G's" know how to treat a woman. Nene always said she never stopped loving you. 

 

Loved the tender moment that you hugged your son, and when Nene and Kim just looked at each other and cried.  It seemed as if all the bad name calling and anger disolved in that moment.  They cared about each other, you could see it in their eyes and actions.  I was moved.

 

Ok, with that said, I don't understand WHY the wedding was so elaborate.  I thought to myself, for one event, for one night, a million dollars was spent.  Tisk, tisk...waste of wealth, waste of money.  But, its your money, and if you like it, then I love it.  (just a little envious)   Its a night to remember, I'm sure.  As far as the prenup, it's your life and your business.

When you married Nene the first time you had money an she didn't and you married her without a prenup because you loved her and wanted to take care of her for the rest of her life.  Now the tables have turned and she wants to protect her assets from you!  Its really pathetic.  I get having a prenup when you first marry someone because you are just starting out as a couple..and you don't want to risk years of income/investment if the marriage is short lived.. but for two people that have been together for over 16 years to get a prenup when they remarry is greedy on Nene's part. She is what she is today because YOU supported her and her son when they were down and gave her the opportunity to explore a career in TV.

I read that NeNe got 1 million per episode for the wedding extravaganza, so since Greg is in every episode that should mean that Greg gets half. Bravo must be crazy to pay anyone one million for any episode. They are probably paying for this wedding also so that makes them very smart or very stupid.

Enough Bravo with these weddings. Married for the third time and having million dollar weddings is a waste of money. It is painfully all about NeNe and she was never that interesting to begin with. The only Bravo wedding special I really enjoyed was Bethenny. With this little mini drama of NeNe's I keep having to turn the sound down when these ladies get together. Is NeNe supposed to be funny?

I told everyone when NeNe wanted a divorce from Greg, that she was doing it because she thought she was going to be a big star in crazywood. When she couldn't find anyone to love her like Greg could then she wanted him back. But with a twist this time / she thought she was going to be a big star and she wanted to make sure Greg only got what SHE wanted him to have if SHE decided she wanted to divorce him again ! Greg sweetheart I'm sorry but I just feel sorry for you getting pulled back into her web...

Greg is so against this prenup that I am wondering what is in it.  He has to protect himself also plus he will soon be retiring and NeNe is younger than he is.

Yes Greg, the whole point of the prenup is so that you  WILL NEVER USE IT!  I did not think twice about signing one 16 years ago when we got married.

I agree with everything macnmac said.  Sad but true, Nene and Gregg appear to have been spending money like crazy this year, and she repeatedly emphasized that she had 'arrived' or was such a big rich success, etc.  But her TV employment is no different than any other actor because they are all dependent on show renewal.  Many women in the housewives series seem to overindulge the minute they decide they have made it big.

I'm sad to say this, but I just don't think this "second time around" is going to work, either...it's all about NeNe....

E-nup, lol... Greg, NeNe is flirting with disaster having Marlo in her life.  I'm sure we will see that your wedding went off without a hitch, but giving her the decision making power that you did, and for a wage, was a stupid thing to do.  I thought Peter gave you excellent advice!  It looks like the 2 of you are really becoming pretty close.  He seems like a great guy.  Hang with great people because birds of a feather flock together, and the users, abusers and opportunists will only bring misery to your life.  Very bad move with your kids.  Very Very disturbing to watch.  Your daughter broke my heart.  You should have been there for her -- for all of them.  Thee is MUCH hurt there, several layers deep, and you need to do a lot of soul searching to make this right.  Get into counseling with them or even without them if they won't go and make this right.  You seem to wanna do the right thing now, so I hope and pray you stick with it.  Please do this...and it wasn't mentioned on last night's show, but do any of them have kids?  If not they soon will, I'm sure and you cannot let history repeat itself with those grandkids.  Good Luck.

Hey Gregg - stop stealing Kim's way by talking to your dog - it is annoying!!  It is shady to steal what Kim does with her sons privately in her show when none of you like her - you gotta know what I'm talking about - it is ignorant - just STOP!!!!  Sign the Pre-Nup dude - if you love NeNe you will do whatever she wants!!!!!!!  It would be different if this was your first time getting married - DUDE please!!!!

Gregg you are a charmer!! NeNe got lucky with you!!! and vice versa.....  She kind of made out when you'll got divorced cause now she gets a prenupt.. LOl I can see where you feel like you got the short end of the stick...... You kinda did.... But you all make a great couple....

.......................let's see........Greg's net worth is about 1-2 million, and Nene's is around 8 [and dropping with the way she spends!]...........not too hard to see why Greg is balking at the thought of signing.  If she marries Greg without a pre-nup, she's dumber than I already think she is!!!

Sorry to say I think the money will be gone when your wife's 15 min are up. Tick _tock at number 13

Nene made her money and success while you two were apart. I agree with Nene on this one. I do not believe for one minute that she believes you will ever divorce. She deserves to protect her financial assets for whatever reason she wants. She is generous with you and always will be...unless you make this prenup thing a deal breaker. Just sign it and quit the nonsense!

Did you expect to divorce the first time you married NeNe?  Man up and just sign the pre-nup.  She is stupid to marry you without one.

 @patcaseygoldi agree and said the same comment that did not post, Nene-MEME, i call her gets 1million dollar for Rhoa salary per season, but she did take a page from Star Jones because certain magazines paid for her wedding photos as stated on the wedding finale by her manager Steve, I donot know why my original comment did not post but its obvious that vindictiveness, is one of Nene ploys, not attractive towards Ms,Jjones, her friends, herX, her way of financing this wedding, i don't fault NENE or Star for this approach, The ABC reality Bachelor has also sponsored weddings. NENE is definitely into one" upmanship", this is not becoming of the person we've seen Nene attempting to grow into.WORK on your better half(I mean you, not Gregg), Mrs. Leakes and your success won't be hollow.!I hope this modification will post because I feel it is helpful and true.

 @Violet12 omg, relax.  seriously????  Do you seriously think that Kim Bierman is the ONLY person in the WORLD who talks to her dog???  No.  Without even knowing you, I know the answer to that.  and, hey, I talk to my cat all of the time and I never got the idea from Kim.....whaddya know...

No way do I believe NeNe has any 8 mil. From where? --nothing pays her that much. People believe the tabloids too much. More like they are both teetering on the brink of little money left.   And NeNe got low union pay scale for her appearance on the tv shows as all new actors do and she does get a place to stay and travel expense included with that. And she is paid by the episode which means she is out cause she is not on the Glee show that much as the other show was cancelled so she is about down to the housewives show--NeNe likes to brag she is rich but she is not walking around looking down in the dumps because she has money. 

 

Greg is close to retirement.  And if NeNe really hit her producer when fighting with Kenya then she may not have the housewife job.

 

And Greg's oldest son did say in a radio interview in 2011 that NeNe went to a lawyer about getting the house but the house was in Greg and his ex-wife's name. Which is why Greg took up residence downstairs. She could not touch the house in divorce.   This show is very far from the reality when the son said 2 years ago on that interview that NeNe and Greg met a year after he was divorced and the younger children had to go live with the mother. So what the big scene was about with Nene claiming otherwise reminded me of the copy of the Kardashians when Kris complained about Bruce's and his children. 

 

I used to like NeNe but clearly the show has gone to her head and created a monster but then who knows maybe she was always that way.

 @Rebound  @Violet12 I wonder if he signed the pre-nup? I have no idea how much Gregg made probably not much but he didn't make Nene sign one when they got married the first time. And about talking to the dogs, that is one of the dumbest comments I've seen on all of these blogs combined... And I've read a lot of dumb posts..

 @Rebound  @Violet12 I talk to my animals too just l like they are people.  But I do think NeNe especially does copy other people and other reality shows and incorporates the same with herself and her family.
