Nene Leakes might be leaving Atlanta for good.
‘The Real Housewife of Atlanta’ alum has officially listed her Atlanta home on the market. The news comes shortly after the passing of her husband on September 1st. Her husband, Gregg Leakes, had been battling complications with colon cancer after going in remission. His first battle had been chronicled for fans on reality television. This brings many questions from fans about what Nene has in store for her future. She had been quietly mourning Greg’s passing after officially losing the battle to stage 3 colon cancer. The pair were married in 1997 and in 2013.
What does this mean for Nene’s future?
“Atlanta will always be home, but it’s too early to tell where she’s moving,” a source reported to US Weekly. While there is no news as to a return to The Real Housewife’s of Atlanta, the star has a few other businesses that have tied to the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia. This includes ‘The Linnethia’, a lounge she owns. However, the source reported that the decision to put the home up for sale also comes simply to start over. They said that Nene has “lots of good memories in the house but also some very heartbreaking moments were left. Selling the home is about moving forward with her life.”
The home is a mansion that was purchased in 2015 and includes seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. It was later renovated to include a walk-in closet and a large swimming pool.
Before the loss, Nene and Gregg shared better times.
However, as many may remember, the reality star also had to scold fans after receiving backlash before Gregg’s passing. At the time she told fans at her lounge: “You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now. When people approach us and say you’re rude, my husband is at home dying. My husband is not going to be here in a couple of days.”
With a difficult path to a forthcoming future, it is understandable why Nene would want to step away from a familiar past.
Nene Leakes looks toward a brighter future.
“I played in dark hair long enough. Now that I’m having to adjust to my new life, my new normal, I thought I’d go back to blonde. I have a whole group of people that’s coming to my house every day doing different stuff with me, trying to keep my mind off of … you know, [the] events that recently happened, ” Nene said in an Instagram story on September 16.
She added: “I’m pushing through. I have good days and bad days. They said it’s normal. So, some days I’m up. Some days I’m down. Today I felt like going to the salon. So that was good.”
Although the professional future for Nene Leakes is not clear, it seems like Nene is gradually moving step-by-step on getting through the grieving process of her husband with full support from those around her. Here is to hoping more about her future very soon.
