Despite the fact that we saw her visit an attorney to discuss the prospect of divorce in the last episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, in an interview with Essence.com, NeNe Leakes says that she and her husband, Gregg are still married and living under the same roof.
“We are still together,” says NeNe. “We are in the same house and we are still legally married. But that’s not to say we won’t be unmarried.”
Though they have managed to keep their marriage intact for this long, NeNe says that it’s the inconsistency of their daily lives that’s been the difficult part.
“One day is good, the next day is bad,” says the reality star. “That’s what I’m really tired of.”
She may be “tired,” but NeNe isn’t ready to make any big moves yet.
“I’m very aware that the 40s for me, are the new 30s and that I need to be happy because life is very short,” says Leakes. “Gregg is my friend and he’s been that for years. He’s always been a great rock for me and I’m afraid that if we really break it off for good I won’t have that rock.”
How does Gregg feel about the couple’s marriage problems?
“He doesn’t want a divorce,” says NeNe. “He says he’s very much in love and he wants to stay married.”
But for now, NeNe’s not sure of what she wants.
“I’m taking baby steps. I’ve been with Gregg since I was 28, and now I’m 42. I thought I was a woman when I got with him, but I’m really a grown woman now. I’ve been with him for some of the best years of my life so it is scary for me to be like, ‘I’m gonna be on my own.’”
While they work through their problems, NeNe says that her priority is their 11-year-old son, Brentt. “I wouldn’t let him watch this week’s show,” says NeNe. “My husband and I have both talked to him on our own. He’s only 11 so he wants his mom and dad to be together.”
