Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes at TV Guide’s Annual Hot List Party on Nov. 12, and the reality star/actress was happy to dish about her complicated relationship with Gregg, traveling to Anguilla, and balancing television shows on both coasts.
Check out our exclusive interview with NeNe below!
Wetpaint Entertainment: What is happening with Gregg?
NeNe Leakes: As you see, Gregg is with me here, tonight, but you will see how the story unfolds on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. We've known each other for 17 years, we have a 13-year-old son. We divorced after 15 years, and Gregg has been out here supporting me. I think it's a great thing, because we know each other very well.
We have divorced, so there is nothing else to argue about. Ha! When you're married, you argue over certain things, once we got divorced, literally there was nothing else to argue about. I think we became good friends again. It was during our marriage, we had gotten to a place where we weren't friends anymore. We almost got to a place where we didn't like each other.
Does he fit in well with the other Housewives on the show?
They love Gregg, they always have loved Gregg. They like him more than they like me. (laughs)
Did bringing him to Anguilla bring you closer together? Did it help or hurt your relationship?
I would say Gregg and I going to Anguilla was definitely a great thing. We did well with the rest of the couples. I would say it didn't necessarily make us closer, but we had no issues with it.
How do you balance The New Normal and RHoA?
At one point, Housewives had wrapped, but we were still doing interviews and pick-up shots. So at one point, I was having to fly back and forth every week. Now I don't have to do that as much. I'm on hiatus with The New Normal. I go back and forth a lot. I'm a flight attendant, really.
