In a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 After Show, Nene Leakes got real — like, super real — about her husband Gregg Leakes. She knows that we all see Gregg as the consummate "good guy," and we're not wrong. But, Nene says: "I go home with Gregg honey; I sleep with Gregg honey. So I know what the f--k Gregg really is. I know every hair on his body, OK?" And like any marriage, there are times when these Atlanta lovebirds don't see eye to eye.
In the clip above, Nene explains that she and her husband were arguing constantly when she went on the Tokyo trip with the other 'Wives. (In case you missed the ladies' adventures in Japan, peep The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 Episodes 12 and 13 — and tune into Episode 14 on February 10 at 8/7c.) Knowing that the group trips can get testy, Nene said, "I needed him to be my support, and he wasn't there." She added: "A lot of people think that he's such an angel, and I'm not saying that he's not. He's a sweet guy; he's a good guy ... but he's a f--king a--hole when he wants to be."
Of course, how Gregg acts around Nene's friends isn't always how he acts when he's behind closed doors with just his wife and can really let his guard down. And since Gregg was diagnosed with colon cancer back in June, the couple has been dealing with the emotional stress from the disease, which has led to some tension.
In fact, Gregg has even publicly apologized for misdirecting some of his frustration toward his wife, saying: "We always hurt the ones we love because they allow us to hurt them rather than snap back. I’m tired of hurting my wife."
