Nene Leakes Opens Up About ‘New Normal’ Without Gregg Leakes: I Have Good Days & Bad Days

Nene Leakes is sharing how she’s navigating through life without her late husband, Gregg Leakes. 

Gregg Leakes sadly passed away earlier this month after a battle with colon cancer.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to her Instagram stories yesterday (Sept. 16) to speak on her “new normal.”

She debuted her blonde look and said,

“Now that I’m having to adjust to my new life, my new normal, I thought I’d go back blonde. So, hi guys, it’s Nene and I’m back blonde.”

She continued,

“I’m trying to adjust to this whole new life that I have and my whole new normal. But I’m blonde…”

She said friends have been coming to her home daily to keep her busy, adding:

“I have good days and bad days. They say 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. I normally don’t go to the salon I usually let people come to my house. So today I decided to drive to the salon and actually sit in the salon with other women, and that was good, to be around other people. 

She added,

“Good days and bad days, pushing through, pushing through.”

She ended with,

“I hope you like the blonde! Love you guys. Thank you for all of the condolences, all of the sweet comments, thank you.”

Gregg Leakes first opened up about his battle with cancer on season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which premiered in November 2018.

He was declared cancer-free in 2019 but Nene Leakes told theJasmineBRAND in late June that his cancer had unfortunately returned.

He passed away on Sept. 1.

Continued prayers for Nene Leakes and the Leakes family as they navigate through this difficult time.
