Grass ain’t always greener…
NeNe Leakes Talks About Marriage With Gregg
If your man thinks the grass is greener on the other side, than let him wander — this according to reality star turned marriage counselor NeNe Leakes!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her ex-husband, Gregg, are opening up to the December issue of Ebony magazine about why they got divorced after 15 years of marriage and hint that they will be heading to the altar once again in the not too distant future, and RadarOnline.com has the details.
Leakes maintains that she had nothing to do with the demise of their marriage and that it was all on the shoulders of her wayward husband.
“It hurt me to file for divorce, but I had to see it through. I let him know you’re going to be my husband and you’re not going to be somebody else’s anything, but if you plan to be somebody else’s anything, then we can’t be together,” Leakes reveals. “Gregg needed to feel what it was like without me. I wanted to let him see if the grass was really greener on the other side. He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there.
“Not only have we divorced, but we are back together as a couple. This is our new normal. I’m telling you, TV is a beast. It will make you do s**t you never thought you’d do.”
Gregg also chimes in on the reason behind their split.
“To expose oneself is the beginning of healing and the beginning of forgiveness. I have never blamed her for anything except being outstanding,” he explains. “If I didn’t blame her [for the relationship’s demise], I must have had shortcomings. Whatever it was, I refused to have my family become another statistic. I fought to get my family back, and that’s what I did with the help of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
And while having all of their dirty laundry aired on national television may seem like a bad thing, he believes that it actually helped other people going through similar situations.
“What we went through in exposing our situation had the ultimate benefit. It’s about helping someone else learn from what we went through,” he says.
When asked if he was planning on putting a big ring back on his ex-wife’s finger, Gregg played coy and encouraged people to find out by watching this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“Stay tuned,” he says. “How do you know I haven’t already?”
The only thing greener on her side is the money. Gregg might be old as hell but he’s no dummy.
