NeNe’s Road to the Altar
4 out of 5 stars
Will it be happily ever after for NeNe Leakes this time around? I Dream of NeNe, the sassy spin-off of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, follows the breakout star as she plans her second wedding to Gregg after the couple revived their romance following their 2011 divorce.
“Gregg is my soul mate,” NeNe, 45, tells In Touch. Which isn’t to say their journey is without drama as NeNe reaches out to her estranged father, makes Gregg reconnect with his five kids from his first marriage and plots a prenuptial agreement in the premiere episode. But the romantic revelations (“I can’t marry money; I’d much rather lay in a bed with Gregg Leakes holding me than with $1,000 bills laying all over me,” coos NeNe) make viewers realize how much is really at stake for the on-again couple, parents to son Brentt, 14.
“This time we know what we’re getting into – and we are grown adults,” says NeNe, who first said “I do” to Gregg in 1997. “We are not young children. Both of us want this, so I think it will definitely work this time.”
