Reality shows and relationships are like oil and water. They don’t mix! First DeShawn & Eric Snow called it quits, then Kandi & AJ (R.I.P.) called off their engagement, and recently Lisa Wu confirmed her separation from Ed Hartwell.
Real “Housewife” of Atlanta NeNe Leakes is also said to be in the midst of her own divorce drama with husband Gregg [insert side-eye here], and while I personally feel there’s a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” relationship curse, NeNe completely absolves Bravo of any responsibility in she and Gregg’s marital woes.
In a recent S2S article on how reality tv affects relationships, NeNe reveals:
Me and Gregg had issues before we even signed on to do the ‘Housewives’ show. I think the show just helped elevate them a little bit.
I couldn’t even put it on the show. I wouldn’t allow a show to break me up.
But the show doesn’t help.
Mmmm hmmm. I’m sure the show doesn’t help AT ALL! Especially when you’re facing marital problems & divorce on the show not in “real life”…
[Sidebar: and 'yes' MediaFakeOut stole my NeNe/Greg Essence photos too!]
Maybe they were just chillin in NOLA to get that old spark back. Who knows? Whatever the case, every dayum season there’s a breakup! I’m hoping my “curse” theory is wrong, but it ain’t lookin’ good…
Does REALITY tv curse relationships?
