“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member and “New Normal” actress NeNe Leakes told Jimmy Fallon on his talk show Thursday that she and Gregg are engaged again.
The couple divorced in 2011 after 14 years, but he managed to get her back into his good graces.
Gregg told a radio host in 2010 how he felt NeNe’s fame had gone to her head and he had invested a lot of his own money into her career.
During season four of the Bravo reality show, as she was going through the divorce, she seemed miserable and angry. Any effort to “date” seemed halfhearted at best.

And based on the fifth season,” taped last year, Gregg put on an aggressive campaign to woo her back after the divorce. It appears to have worked. Overall, NeNe seems significantly happier during the current season, her sadness lifted.
She told Sister to Sister magazine: “When we broke up, Gregg moved out for a year. We divorced while Gregg was out. Then, once we divorced, we found ourselves being friends. And there was nothing left to fight about.”
Last night, Fallon teased her about happy photos she Tweeted over New Year’s and asked them if they were engaged again.
“Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: ‘Will you marry me – again?’ ” Leakes said.
