Stop faking the funk Linnethia, it’s a wrap!
Fans of Bravo TV’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” have been speculating for months about the marital status of Linnethia “NeNe” Leakes, and her indecision regarding her marriage to husband Gregg Leakes:
Now the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper reportedly has uncovered the truth that NeNe has been “faking the funk” to boost “RHOA” ratings.
Reportedly, NeNe Leakes filed for divorce in Forsyth County on April 29, 2010, during Season 3 of “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, and finalized the divorce September 29, 2011, after Season 4 had wrapped. Sources say, she was likely keeping quiet about her divorce to keep up the chatter about her personal life.
The former couple married in 1997 in Athens, GA and have one son together, Brentt, and NeNe’s older son Bryce from a previous relationship.
No reports on whether Gregg requested spousal support, since NeNe became the family’s breadwinner.
NeNe recently addressed her divorce speculation and shut the rumors down via Twitter:
We wonder if NeNe was keeping everything under wraps to boost ratings for RHOA or to jumpstart her rumored new reality show based around her single life in LA…
