(aka the last “original housewife standing”) of the Real Housewives of Atlanta
and her fake “ex” husband Gregg Leakes were spotted poppin tags in NYC a few days ago (January 7, 2013).
Nene and her new “fiance” are making the rounds since announcing their “engagement” online last week.
Monday Nene made an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show (click HERE if you missed it), where she verfied the big news and chatted with Wendy today about their rekindled romance. Leakes also took the opportunity to spill the beans on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.
The two met in 1996, married in 1997 and filed for divorce in 2011.

Leakes played the game and she won! All of her original cast mates were kicked off the island and now she can finally come clean about and live her life like it’s golden!
