Reality TV star NeNe Leakes cancels her shows due to her husband’s ill-health and hospitalization!
The Instagram post
NeNe Leakes, 50 had uploaded a video in which she talks about her husband Gregg, 63 and his current illness and hospitalization. She began the video with the following statements:
“First of all, I just want to say that I feel very blessed and extremely lucky to be able to do what I do. I’m so grateful that you guys purchased tickets to see me everywhere,”
“I have to cancel my Albany, New York show and my New York City Caroline’s show. Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital.”
Stating the reasons behind the cancelations of her stand-up comedy shows, NeNe said:
“I find it very difficult to stand on stage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money’s worth knowing that my husband is in the hospital not feeling well,”
She went on:
“He has said to me over and over again, ‘Go on, go out there, have a good time, do the show, I’m going to be fine.’ But I find it mentally very hard for me to do that.”
Giving a follow-up on his ill-state, NeNe said:
“Gregg will be out of the hospital this week, He will be stronger, he will be better and we will be out here doing this show again in no time. Thank you for loving me! Thank you so much.”
The fake news doing the rounds
There was false news recently published in a tabloid which talked about Gregg’s illness and said that he had food poisoning and heart issues due to which he has been hospitalized for 15 days. NeNe claimed that the news is utterly a wrong one. She also responded to it thus:
This is NOT an exclusive!! This is a ploy to try an find out what’s really going on! Well what’s not going on is…he’s NOT in the hospital for an heart issue, he doesn’t and has NEVER had food poisoning! By the way, who the fuck stays in the emergency room 15days? It’s really sad people like Radar won’t respect your privacy when you need it most?? #lifeoftheleakes Thank you to those that have sent well wishes and good vibes! Thank you to our family and friends who are texting us with thoughts and prayers
