NeNe Leakes and hubby Gregg may seem like the picture of a loving, supportive couple, but the Real Housewives of Atlanta star reveals that she thinks the couple’s divorce in 2010 was necessary for them to get to a better place.


While the two got back together after over a year apart and have been happily remarried since last year, NeNe reveals to Pose Magazine that she doesn’t think her relationship would have become so strong if they hadn’t split.

“I have been with Gregg for 18 years now, since 1996. We broke up for a year and a half and I always say that was a great year and a half for us. We needed that breakup,” says NeNe. “When we met that day in 1996, we’ve been together every day since. We needed to break up. I needed to see what else was going on. He needed to see what else was going on. I think we both learned a lot and I’m happy we found our way back to each other.”

It looks like the second time is truly the charm for this adorable pair!
