NeNe and Gregg LeakesCongratulations are in order for Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, who got engaged to her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes, on New Year's Eve ... we think. The whole announcement is a little cryptic, but what else could this series of tweets mean?

It started out with this picture of her and her ex-husband together. Then there was a hallway lined with candles and rose petals. That was followed by a picture of a bottle of champagne chilling along with Hershey's Kisses spelling out their initials -- "G" and "N" -- and a tweet that read: "Look @ our nite cap! #new beginnings."

Then came the final two kickers.

And there's only one thing that can mean right? Well, we hope so anyway. It's so much more romantic than their first engagement, which she recently recounted on RHOA: "We got engaged drivin' down I-20. We straight ghetto."

The only problem is that since New Year's Eve she's been silent on the matter. And that's not very NeNe-like now is it? Her reps haven't commented, and she hasn't addressed in on Twitter, which is a little strange.

I hope it's not just some trick to mess with our minds and grab some publicity, because that would be kind of mean. I would have never expected to be rooting for them to get back together, but they really seem happy on this season of RHOA, and they seem better together than apart. It's crazy that it took a divorce to show them what they mean to one another, but it seems to have been what they needed.

So I hope it's true. I just wish she'd really come out and say it loud and proud, so we can offer an effusive congratulations rather than the guarded one we're feeling now.

Do you think NeNe Leakes is engaged?
