NeNe Leakes' Husband Gregg Pens Public Apology for Hurtful Behavior

by at .

Some time after Thanksgiving of last year, NeNe Leakes blasted her cancer-stricken husband.

She even described his behavior towards her as "evil," openly complaining about him.

Now, Gregg Leakes is acknowledging his bad treatment of her during his cancer battle, and singing NeNe's praises.

Gregg Leakes Has Cancer

"We always hurt the ones we Love," Gregg Leakes begins his heartfelt Instagram post.

"Because," he writes. "They allow us to hurt them rather than snap back."

"I’m tired of hurting my wife," he says, referring to his hurtful words that he has said during his cancer battle.

He praises NeNe, "who is only trying to take good care of me."

"And," he admits, NeNe "wants only the best for me too."

"She deserves much more," Gregg says of his wife.

He is grateful "for her hard efforts and tireless hours spent on me."

And he asks for help and guidance in treating her with the respect that she deserves.

"I Pray to God to get it together," Gregg admits.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with admitting that you need help, even if it's with getting yourself under control.

Gregg's post continues, and here, he sings the praises of NeNe.

"She’s done NO wrong..." he asserts.

Some The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans might take issue with that, but he's speaking of her as his wife and sometimes caregiver.

"This is ALL on me......" Gregg writes of his own behavior.

He concludes his post by issuing a stern warning to his fans and followers: "Cancer WILL change your Life..."

That is absolutely true.


On Tuesday, NeNe acknowledged Gregg's health battle on Instagram while illustrating that he is up and about.

"@greggleakes Happy your out in the casino doing what you love to do," she wrote.

"Because for some strange reason," NeNe continued. "People seem to think your like stuck in a bed or hooked up to some sort of machine."

NeNe added: "when that couldn’t be further from the truth!"

"Enjoy your day," she concluded. "And bring home some of that money hunni"

In late November, NeNe very unsubtly subtweeted her husband.

"I would just think if i have or had cancer, i would see life so differently!" she expressed.

NeNe predicted that, in Gregg's shoes, she would "not being mean, grouchy, and evil for no real reason!"

"But that’s me," she concluded. "Pray for me."

If you have had a close relative with cancer, you know that sometimes, they can lash out with hurtful words at their caregivers.

Some interpreted NeNe's message about Gregg gambling as shady.

We're not so sure.

Some people get their impressions of cancer battles either from seeing distant relatives at the very end of their lives, or from television.

In real life, people with cancer usually continue to live their lives, but less comfortably after their chemo treatments.

People with cancer shop, meet up with friends, play video games, and gamble as before.

She wasn't trying to shame him for enjoying himself, just to illustrate that her impatience with his grouchiness is understandable.

She's not tweeting her frustrations about a man who's confined to a hospital bed. She's talking about the realities of having a husband with cancer.
