NeNe Leakes is catching major heat after fans noticed she wasn’t wearing her mask around her husband, Gregg, who’s a cancer survivor. The 52-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star shared several pictures from her July 4th weekend, which she spent on a boat with a group of friends, and many grew concerned when they noticed Gregg Leakes was on the water vehicle too. NeNe gave an update on his health last year, revealing that after a long battle, he was now cancer-free.
But when she posted a sizzling hot photo showcasing herself in a bathing suit with her close friend, fans unloaded on the star for putting Gregg in the compromising position. Taking to her Instagram, NeNe Leakes shared a photo looking fierce in her neon blue swimsuit. Pairing the look with jean shorts and a hat, she captioned the snap by writing, “What Sunday’s are made of #yatchlife” while tagging her friend, Alvin Mcqueen. Once fans clicked on Alvin’s Instagram, his story gave followers even more ammunition.

In his Instagram Story, Gregg can be seen driving the boat and while he has a mask, it’s seen pulled down around his chin, exposing his mouth. No one else appears to be protecting their faces with coverings in the video, including NeNe Leakes. Fans weren’t happy, with many accusing her of putting Gregg in harm’s way.
“Where is your mask?” asked one angry follower to which several responded with their own concerns. “They really playing with corona SMH,” responded another.
That’s when one person took their comment over the top by dragging Gregg Leakes into the mix. Responding back to the original mask commenter, the person wrote, “right and Greg [sic] is sick. She going to kill him.”
In 2019, Gregg Leakes was officially declared cancer-free after his ongoing battle with stage 3 colon cancer. He had his last final surgery in June 2019 to have his port removed. NeNe Leakes’ mask backlash isn’t the only criticism she’s been facing lately. Rumors have been swirling that she’s been demoted from “RHOA” with some begging Bravo to fire her.
As The Blast reported, NeNe Leakes laughed off the haters who came for her job after the network began it’s firing frenzy. Their interest in her firing peaked when it was confirmed that she was jumping ship from Bravo to E! with a new show. E! confirmed that NeNe Leakes will co-host their new competitive beauty series, called “Glamsquad Showdown.” The show “celebrates the best celebrity ‘glam squads’ in the business.” As of this post, Bravo has yet to announce if there’s any truth to the rumors.
