NeNe Leakes' Husband Gregg Leakes Has Been in the Hospital for the Past 15 Days
The Real Housewives of Atlanta performer shares an update on her hubby's health.
In the clip, NeNe announced that she has cancelled her upcoming shows in Albany, New York and New York City due to Gregg's health issues. "Hey, you guys, it's NeNe, and I'm doing a different announcement than I've ever done before. First of all, I just want to say that I feel very blessed and extremely lucky to be able to do what I do, and I'm so grateful that you guys purchase tickets to see me everywhere. I have to cancel my Albany, New York show and my New York City Caroline's show," NeNe said in the video. "Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital. I find it very difficult to stand onstage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money's worth knowing that my husband is in the hospital not feeling well. He has said to me over and over again, 'Go on. Go out there. Have a good time. Do the show. I'm gonna be fine.' But I find it mentally very hard for me to do."
NeNe did not share why Gregg has been hospitalized or what sort of health issues he is currently facing. However, she ended the video on an optimistic note. "Gregg will be out of the hospital this week. He will be stronger. He will be better," she said. "And we will be out here doing this show again in no time. Thank you for loving me. Thank you so much."
NeNe later cleared up some speculation surrounding Gregg's health in another post on Instagram after one report claimed he had been hospitalized for heart issues and food poisoning. "Well what’s not going on is...he’s NOT in the hospital for an heart issue, he doesn’t and has NEVER had food poisoning!" she wrote.
She also showed her gratitude for all the love she and Gregg have been given in the wake of his recent health scare. "Thank you to those that have sent well wishes and good vibes!" she said. "Thank you to our family and friends who are texting us with thoughts and prayers."
NeNe previously opened up about Gregg's health issues last season of RHOA when he went to the hospital to have surgery done to see if there was any blockage in his heart. When The Daily Dish caught up with NeNe in January, she shared that Gregg had been doing much better. "He's doing really, really good. He's doing well. He's not eating the way he's supposed to because he likes to play games, but he's doing good," she said. "I'm like, look, this is your life now. I'm not gonna stand over you and be like, 'Don't eat that!' Because that's just gonna make him uncomfortable, and that's just gonna make him try and sneak and eat something."
