On Thursday, the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies honored Nene with the “Woman of Achievement” award for her cancer advocacy work, per IBI Times.
Nene spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the event and shared an update on her husband.
“As you know, my husband, [Gregg], was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer and ever since then, we have been all over this whole cancer thing because it was devastating to our family. But, I’m happy to say today that Gregg is much better. We don’t know that he is free of cancer, but he’s much better,” she said.
During “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Season 11, Gregg’s condition began to take a toll on the couple’s relationship. Fans accused the reality TV star of being mean and abusive to Gregg during this challenging moment in his life, and there were even rumors that the duo separated and were talking divorce, again.
The couple married in 1997 and divorced in 2011 before remarrying in 2013.
Back in January, Gregg apologized for emotionally and verbally abusing his wife in a heartfelt Instagram post. He wrote:
“We always hurt the ones we love … because they allow us to hurt them rather than snap back,” Gregg said. “I’m tired of hurting my wife who is only trying to take good care of me and wants only the best for me too.”
During his cancer treatment, Leakes underwent surgery but opted out of chemotherapy.
