The reality star-turned-actress is getting hitched, again… to the SAME guy.
After what looked like a pretty open-and-shut case, painting a picture of NeNe Leakes getting back together with ex-husband, Gregg Leakes, to her cult following on Twitter, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” vet confirmed the news on a Tuesday night television appearance.
The confession took place during an interview on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” where host, Jimmy Fallon, charmingly pried his way into NeNe’s personal life.
“You start tweeting out these photos,” Fallon asked. “So, are you engaged? Can you say anything?”
NeNe responded: “Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: ‘Will you marry me — again?’”

The news wasn’t exactly a shocker, though, as news outlets had been guessing that a marriage rerun was on the way since New Year’s. Leakes was blasting off messages into the Twitterverse like “Look @ our nite cap! #new beginnings,” which was embellished by a photo of a romantic scene: champagne, strawberries and a Hershey’s Kisses display forming the letters “G” and “N.”
In two follow up tweets she added, “My answer was” … “Yes.” So, yeah, no surprise there. But the “Jimmy Fallon” appearance only concreted the matter for fans.
NeNe and Gregg met in 1996. They were married for 13 years and divorced in 2011. They have a 13-year-old son, Brent, together. NeNe also has a son, Bryson, from a previous relationship.
According to Us Weekly, the initial cause of their relationship woes were related to money, where Gregg invested upwards of $300,000 in NeNe’s career. Gregg had said that the “fame got to her head.”
All water under the bridge now. Congrats to the happy couple!
