On Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes and her husband Gregg had a huge blow out.
She was shown filing for divorce papers; he broadcast (unwittingly) talk of their divorce; and NeNe declared them done:
This is it between me and Greg. We’re done. We’re over.
But that was then (filmed this summer), so what is going on now?
No one apparently has found any record of actual divorce papers, so could they have worked things out since then? Was it all for show?
Doesn't look like it.
Since the show aired, NeNe took to her blog on Bravo and addressed the situation saying her "breaking point has come."
Not "had" come, but "has" come.
She went on to say:
Yes, Gregg is a good guy, but that doesn't mean Gregg is a good husband. All I can say is, I'm tired! Only I know what I've been through! My happiness and independence means everything to me, and I want to follow my heart, but I'm scared! I'm taking baby steps, but I hope I've been brave enough for all the women that couldn't! I hope I was able to show my children what a strong woman looks like and stands for! I will only accept loyalty and trust! My happiness is everything to me!
That sound like a woman with some boots made for walking.
When and how she'll do the walking is the question.
It's hard to know whether to root for her to start running or to hold out hope that they will work it out. While no one is privy to all that goes on in a relationship except the two people in it, it does seem like they've gone past the point of no return based on what we've seen.
One can only hope NeNe isn't stirring up all the speculation for ratings. She seems more honest and straightforward than that, but many a housewife before her has done a distasteful thing or two in the name of garnering publicity. Let's hope she's not following in their footsteps.
Are you rooting for NeNe and Gregg to stay together or divorce?
