Gregg Stops the Wedding

Despite hitting a snag a few years back, NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes have been together for nearly 20 years -- and are stronger than ever before. And there's definitely a secret or two to what keeps the longtime loves coming back to one another.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

"Respect, communication, love, and we will never stop trying," Gregg told The Daily Dish about The Real Housewives of Atlanta pal, who he first married in 1997 before remarrying her in 2013 after a brief separation. "I respect her, that's first," he said.

"And I let her be her. That's it."

And to make sure they keep that spark alive, the couple makes sure they make time for one another.

"We date every week. One day a week every week. No certain day, but once a week we date," he said. "It's temporaneous. Sometimes we just get in the car and we drive we go have a taco. Other times she will plan to go to her favorite restaurant, other times I'll totally surprise her. Sometimes I'll bring in a chef. And when I really want to be on my wild side I cook. I'm a great cook. I'm a steak and potato man, but I put a twist on it. You don't even know what you got until you see it done Gregg's way. It's an OG secret; I can't reveal that. I make sure my wife enjoys everything I do."

We caught up with Gregg while he was in NYC with Nene during New York Fashion Week and he had no problem being her sidekick in the Big Apple. In fact, he works extra hard to please his wife when she's in work mode. "Well she's busy so I support her. I pump her up. I keep her going. I rub her feet," he said. "I whisper sweet nothings in her ear. And I do whatever it takes to keep her going, keep mama happy. Mama happy, daddy happy."
