NeNe Leakes

NeNe reflects on her big day with Gregg.

on Oct 28, 20130

WE DID IT! This has been an amazing journey! It came full circle just like I prayed for! I went through so much to get to this point and going through is what brought me through. I can't tell you how it made me feel to have both my boys walk me down the aisle! It was indescribable and a true honor! Both of my boys were proud of me and Gregg! They looked absolutely handsome while shedding tears of joy.

My Bridesmaid-zillas were chosen because they all had touched my heart in different ways! I truly love them all, and they looked stunning! I truly wanted to honor them that day more than I wanted to honor myself.

Mr Gregg Leakes: I am honored to be your wife! You are strong, you are funny, and I never knew love until I found you! Let's make it last forever! I hope I have inspired couples around the world to believe in love and fight for their families!

Thank all of you who tuned in week after week and rooted for me and my family! Don't worry about missing me for long because you can catch me Sunday, Nov. 3rd as The Real Housewives Of Atlanta return to Bravo! Tune in!

Stay Fabulous,

Mrs. NeNe Leakes

NeNe, your wedding was beautiful, you could see and feel the love!  Your whole family showed you and Gregg their love and it was so nice to finally see you two back together!  Good luck to you all! It was so touching to see you and Kim have your moment, she was genuinely happy for you! I am finally enjoying the evolution of NeNe, you have softened, more of the lady anyone would want to be friends with.  I enjoy your show and wish you a lot of success with it. Don't worry I will be watching!

I like you Nene (in small doses though) and I think that's why I couldn't watch your marriage special, it was just too too much (I couldn't watch Tamra from RHOC either).  I am happy for you that you are with the man you clearly should be with, he is centered and balances you very well, plus it is obvious that he loves you very much.  I watched the first episode of RHA last night and I was glad to see that you used your considerable voice to  put Kenya in her place, she is just too too much mouth and little substance.  I wish you the best with your reunited family and success in your acting career.  You do deliver a good punch line, great comic timing.

Oh People!

 Relax about the extravaganza Bravo's calling " Nene's Wedding". I like Nene; she has great comic timing, and I hope she will leave all this phony baloney on RHOA and land another job somewhere else. She might find a career in acting .BTW, do we seriously think that she personally paid for all that glitz? That the numerous stars of other Bravo shows attending the event are her close friends....they don't live in Atlanta , for one. When would she have the time to get to know them....she's filming most of the time ,no?

I'm watching the new atlanta show right now and I'm watching Nene open all these wedding gifts.  Why would you even accept gifts when it is your second marriage to the same man?  I don't get this at all, most people would say no gifts please.  I think it's rude, sorry

It was a beautiful event and the fact you had the Bridesmaids wear whites attests to the fact you like to lift people up. You are a girls girl and not a hater. The reunion with Kim was the most beautiful and my favorite; the rest was fabulous as expected, you did not disappoint.

NeNe, your wedding was so beautiful and so where you.  Love Greg.  He is so funny and clearly adores you.  The moment you spent with Kim, Priceless!  Loved it!  You brought tears to my eyes. Congratulations to you and Greg!  May you have many long happy years together.

Some how my dvr skipped the scene with pre-nup. There was a commercial that broke in at an odd time, i think that might have been when it was, anyway, what happened with it? Did Gregg sign it? Did Nene rip it up? Details please!!

Congrats to you and Greg, the ceremony was lovely.  I don't normally watch wedding shows, but I'm glad I watched your wedding. As far as the criticism you're receiving about the expense of it all, well it's your money, you earned it and you can spend it how you like.

What is the problem with her having an extravagant wedding for the 2nd time around. Tamera on Orange County had am extravagant 3rd wedding this time, Adriana from Miami had an official extravagant wedding this time though she was already married to the man for 5 years and counting.

Ya know---I just cannot imagine what kind of a person goes around and says things to people like--" Do you know who you are dealing with?  You are dealing with Nene Leakes."  and "you may have done weddings for athletes and whoever else but you have not done anyone of my level before (or something just like that)" .  Nene has said this countless times.  I cannot imagine what type of feeling that must be--for someone to feel that they are so much better than everyone else, that they can talk to people like they are just minions far far below the status of them.   Just because you have a reality show and a couple of roles on tv ??  THAT is what gives you that smug secure holier than thou attitude that everyone should bow at your feet??  I think that  having the idea that you are so much better than everyone else says it all---that you really are insecure because people who really do "have it all" don't act like the "fabulous Nene Leakes" acts.  Nene you are gonna have a long long fall off that high horse.

What a BEAUTIFUL and MESMERIZING wedding! Congrats to you Nene! You always stay true to yourself! People may say whatever they want about you and how much money you spent on this wedding, but in the end, IT IS YOUR MONEY not their money. You can do whatever the hell you want to do with your wedding. At least you remarrying your soul  mate after 15 years of marriage and divorce... You have people having million dollars wedding and lasting only 40 days - Good for you and Greg! You had the wedding of your dreams, and that's the most important thing to understand and KNOW!!! Congrats!!!

Nene, this was a beautiful wedding.  Now it is time to invest in English courses for you and your "brideSmaids."  They are not "bridemaids."  There is so much incorrect English used by your black female friends that it is embarrassing to watch at times.  It makes me cringe when the subtitles go on the screen, which confirms the erroneous grammar being used.  Real sophistication isn't the amount of money you spend on red bottoms and a second wedding, but it's also your education level.  Your first transformation was the new teeth, now it's time to upgrade your knowledge in subject-verb agreement and other grammar skills.  Those friends of yours need help too.  Get some tips from Africa from the New Atlanta and Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey...

This entire show was a total display of dysfunctional family life - Gregg's lack of a relationship with his own children that started when he first married NeNe 20 years ago, NeNe's "father" refusing to attend the wedding, Bryson's unwed baby momma and Marlo's childhood trauma on display.  What a sad group.  The wedding and reception venues were spectacular, thanks to Tony, unlike Nene's wedding gown and "bridemaids" dresses.  Enough with the second weddings, Bravo!

Oh please!  All the pomp and circumstance for a second wedding to the same man!  Outrageous. If you are so rich, very, very, rich, rather than have a very expensive wedding registry, again for a 2nd marriage to the same man, why didn't you invite your guest to make a contribution to one of the charities you support?

 

Could it be your not that rich or you are that selfish and don't support charities?

 @kschroeder Because Nene is selfish. Prime example when she was talking about the wedding gifts "she" got and Greg had to correct her and say "us"... I love the old Nene - not so much the new Nene. What decent person puts someones home down and calls it ghetto. Really Nene???? You should apologize to not only Kenya (who I am not fond of by the way), but your fans for such a shallow comment.

@UThousewife he signed it and presented it to her shortly before the wedding.

 The wedding was beautiful, but you shouldn't think that everything was paid by NeNe and Greg.

 @Glimmer88 You are so right about Nene. I makes me sad as I did like her. But the way she is talking down to people and insulting them on tv is harsh, but can you imagine how she would treat the common folk. I think she loves Greg but does not treat him as an equal. Nene you need to start being more respectful of people - you can be funny and witty without putting people down all the time and acting like you are the cats meow! Your success will depend on it I believe.

 It is wierd, the phenomena of the "Housewives" that seem to get really big headed with their exposure. I'm sure that "look at me" attitude is what draws them to the HW franchises.

 I never hear of a Sandra Bullock or Halle Barry treating people like that. Or shouting out "I'm rich, B".  Look at Kelly Clarkson; I'm sure her earnings and popularity are many. many multiples of NeNe Leakes, and her  yet she had a beautiful, understated wedding. And no rumors of her castrating any of her vendors.

 @esha_bell You took the wordS right out of my mouth. What is this hatred for the letter "S"? When you are speaking about something someone owns you use apostrophy s. Like Nene's wedding, Greg's children so on so on......She will say "Greg kids". It drives me crazy .I also  think referring to yourself in the 3rd person is really disturbing. Most people I know don't even know who she is.

@Revie11 You would think that with Nenes snobby I'm better than all of you attitude she'd at least have some good "breeding" to back it up but she has the bloodline of a hoodrat , which is exactly just what she is. As much as she'd like to think so--you cannot get silk from a sows ear.

 @Basic101 It is her Money - if you want to donate to charity for your wedding, then you do so. Why force someone else to do it? nene has charities before she became a housewife and afterwards... Who are you to judge?! No one!

 @Basic101

 Why don't you shut up about what Nene should do with her money. The wedding was beautiful; just spectacular and she should not have invited her guests to donate to a charity. You should gather all your friends and all of you make a donation to all the charities in the world. That would take care of the charities and you would be happy...at last.

 This post is soooo right.....the only word to describe it was "ridiculousness".......I am totally shocked that Gregg allowed his children from his former life to be on the show...that basically made him look like a rolling stone...and I felt really bad for those kids.....especially when Nene started going commando on them.....there is no way anyone could treat Nene Leakes bad because she will beat them to it...I really got turned off by all the "in your face, I'm rich behavior".....people like that in society  usually find themselves alone at some point......nobody wants to hear that....I believe that is why she married Gregg again.....he is the only man she is able to verbally beat up and sticks by her....he is too old to start again and Nene is too mean.....a match made if you ask me....but a second wedding....preposterous...give that money to your 5 kids Gregg...I'm sure you didn't make every child support payment.....I'm over it

 @Glimmer88  @UThousewife She should have ripped it up... He never asked her for one the first time. Proves how stuck she is on herself. I get the importance of one, but on a first time around maybe so. But not the second when one wasn't required the first time.

 @ESinAZ  @glamapuss

 I didn't know Adriana was married to her now husband for five years, that is new to me.  Was NeNe married to her first son's father? If so, that is one and twice to Greg (lol).

 @ESinAZ  @Glimmer88 I think actors except to get famous and they can deal with it a bit better.. I would never go up to Tom Cruise and talk to him, but he would never shout "I'm rich, bitch" we all know he is. He knows we know, it's all good.. But these "Housewives" they want everyone to know they are "Somebody". On WWHL one of the comediennes was on and telling a story how she was on a plane sitting next to someone that she knew was a "housewife" but didn't know who. She had her sunglasses on, initials on her luggage, talking on her phone, she wanted everyone around to know she was somebody. Of course this is Gretchen.. Show me a humble housewife.. I kind of like Yolanda and this is why: she'll walks around barefoot in her home. You have Kyle walking around in 6" stiletto's and she has a small child. Do the extremely wealthy really do that? No, I live in an extremely affluent area, do you know what they wear on down days? Lululemon at home. They are more like Yo at home. In dress, not attitude.. Although I like her attitude too..

OH! Kelly Clarkson is a good comparison! She made money fast! Was in the limelight fast, and well liked (unlike Nene) does she go around acting like these ladies? OMH!!!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!  I think I'll do a real housewives of UT and try to be the humble one.. But then you'll all post hate about me.. But I'll talk  back as UThousewife... ;)

 I do make charities to many worthy charitable organizations and I'm not rich, monetarily rich, but giving back some of my earnings is gratifying.  My will gives to the same organizations I support today.

 

I would never think about taking from others when I have so much.  Never.

 @FlutterBy  @Basic101 I'm ok with the wedding.. It's for tv.. fine whatever. I can't believe it when I read that people cried. Really? I fast forward through most of it. What I find most odd is that she registered. WTH! She really is one of the most selfish people ever.. And I say she, because I don't think Gregg cares at all..

I believe she can do what she want with her money and from what I am told it is better the second time around anyway. Basic101 you chose the right screen name Basic...... They have the right to do what they want when they want. The wedding was great and beautiful. So pretty I might use some of her Decor for mine. HATER HATER HATER

@Basic101 @Rhonu Rhonu has said several times that giving money to charities is stupid and shouldn't be done---I think that pretty much sums it up for me. What type of person says that?????? A selfish materialistic person that's who. I have a decent job but have to really watch my $$ but I still give to six animal charities every month. It's taken out of my check so I am assured that it's always done. You'd think that maybe Nene might want to set a good and different example by not registering for these expensive gifts for her third marriage--second to the SAME guy she just divorced!!! That right there just reeks of low class.

 Then don't worry about Nene giving to charities because you give and got that locked. So when it comes to giving to charities, Basic got that.

 @marandia2  @didi33

 It's uncouth to demand expensive monetary gifts for a 2nd wedding.  That is what is wrong.  It is also uncouth to tell everyone what she received and from whom. 

 

Of course what she did is legal, I just feel it's wrong.
