NeNe Leakes: There's a Lot to Shamari DeVoe

NeNe Leakes reveals her first impressions of new Housewife Shamari DeVoe and opens up about Gregg's cancer battle.

By Nene Leakes
Is Gregg Leakes' Cancer Beatable? What was going through your mind when you heard the doctor's recommendation for chemo?

How to Watch

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

NeNe Leakes: When I heard the doctor's recommendation was for Gregg to do chemo, I already knew that was something Gregg didn’t want to hear. Gregg told me prior to going to MD Anderson, that chemo wasn’t something he wanted to do. He would rather try a natural holistic approach first. I’m not for chemo, but I’m not against it either! This is a personal choice of Gregg’s at the moment, and I just want to support him in any way I can. How do you know Toni Braxton?

NL: Gosh, I’ve known Toni Braxton for quite a few years now! Don’t even remember how we actually met, but she used to live in my neighborhood. I’m friends with both Toni and Tamar Braxton! Toni reached out to me with some holistic recommendations along with a number of other celebrities! Everybody wants to see Gregg win the war against cancer. Wouldn’t that be a blessing? What were your first impressions of Shamari?

Are Shamari and Ronnie DeVoe Giving Kandi Burruss Performance Advice?

NL: My first impressions of Shamari were that she’s fun and one of those stay-at-home moms that’s ready to get out and spread her wings! There’s a lot to Shamari, so stay tuned.

Thank you for the love and support both Gregg and I have received during this time! It hasn’t been easy, but your thoughts and prayers are much appreciated. Check out Swagg Boutique online at and follow me and Gregg on all social platforms. Love you guys so much! Happy Holidays.
