“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.

But after her 2011 appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice, she has seen her star rise in Hollywood, first on “Glee,” then “The New Normal.”

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.

Her answer?

Congrats. I have always loved them 2gether and you can tell they loved each other…just probably wasnt for all the things that came with being put in the spotlight due to being on RHOA. I bet Kenya is “twirling” to her grave right about now. Someone else is heading down the aisle and she hasnt been down it once……

Perhaps she’ll do a crossover to Double Divas.

It’s nice to see people who are mature & have a history together try again with each other. Greg is older than she is & was established when he married her. She had a son & they have one together. For a man to realize what he lost & put the real work in making changes in himself to get her back is wonderful. It’s also great that she realized what she lost & that their history was too much to throw away. I hope they’re much happier now!

Probably The Devil – about the only one who would put up with this loud angry black woman……I know I wouldn’t……I would kick her out pronto.

Yuck! She looks like a man and he looks like he wants dibbs on her pocketbook in return for his previous investment.

Congrats NeNe and Gregg! Happy to see that all things are possible with a little love. I’m also happy to see that you realize where home is.

I am NO fan of this show as it paints this city in a pathetic light… but this lady is pretty cool. Funny and seemingly talented. She would have risen to the top even without the stupid RHOA franchise.

Happy for NeNe and Gregg!! What a comeback for Love! NeNe has also shown a noticeable improvement in her behavior this season, I’ve actually started watching again (truly a miracle). Now if we can just get that crazy Kenya lady in line…

I would have guessed it was another tranny much like herself. Talk about the heeby jeebies.

Oh please. They only got divorced in the first place so NeNe’s earnings wouldn’t be affected by Gregs tax problems. Now that he’s about got that settled, they can go back to doing what they were doing. Also NeNe probably wants to throw a ghetto affair of a wedding and have it televised. Really people. Come on.

Who really cares? The Housewives shows are trash and only the media keeps them alive.

This makes

Say what you want about Ne-Ne, but she is a one man woman and takes her and Greg’s relationship very seriously, and she would not have been happy with anyone else. This makes me very happy.

Congratulations… NeNe has been so much happier this season and it has been obvious that Gregg is the reason. Glad they were able to work out their differences.

They were never “Divorced” no Public Records on file, this is only for Bravo Ratings…..Hello…NeNe and Geritol Gregg please have several seats…..I digress.

Ummmm….@dreammaker, get a life! And please post your picture somewhere so we can judge your appearance. Your comments were unnecessary. Who gives a rats azz what stereotypes there are for black women. There are stereotypes for women of all races. I’m not a Nene fan, but she has a right to live her life as she chooses. Time for you to get one…geesh!

When she stepped into that arangement with the little white man someone pulled her coat tail to warn her of what could happen paying in that arena. She slowed her roll real quick!!!

I hope it works the second time around. But if her head was too big in the beginning where is it now?

The wig really looks flimsy

I’m so happy for NeNe and Gregg. They belong together. Sometimes two people have to split up in order for them to realize all the mistakes they made and how much they really love each other. I wish them the best and Gods’ Blessings upon their lives. :)

Atlanta is such a ghetto and classless town.


January 5th, 2013

She is just trying to get a free Kim Kardashian type wedding on the show. They deserve each other because she knows Greg is the only one that can stomach her face when she gets home and takes that blond, Donald Trumpish rug off ger head and NeNe is the only one that can stomach Greg ole man balls- on- the ground when he get home and takes his pants off. They are equally yoked. Next and who cares.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think you and Greg the best. Tell Kenya he put a ring on it and do the swirl.

Oh I forgot to say.Doesn’t NeNe hands look larger than Greg’s.Look at the picture again. I guess her ring will be coming from the jewelry store by the man name of Jerad. She has man hands. Makes you go hmmmmmmm.

This is so real BS this fool Greg pulled this hoe out of a strip club called the Gold Club . For those of you who don’t know this place it is a church now in Atlanta in Buckhead. She did what hoes do she married him in the first place because he could give her what she wanted. The when she was able to take care of her self she was out. I think there is a lotthan we ar moree to this story

For those of you who say that Atlanta is such a ghetto and classless town based on RHOA, you are taking “reality tv” as reality, and that’s on you. Don’t say my entire town is ghetto and classless, because that’s simply not true; you might be running in the wrong circles. In the words of my fellow Atlantans, “If you don’t like where I stay, fly away, fly away…’-Goodie MOB :-)
