NeNe Leakes has opened up about her husband Gregg Leakes and his struggle with cancer.

 

She shared a photo of him at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston sitting next to a computer with the word "cancer" crossed out. She captioned the photo, "Our New Normal and the fight begins #f--kcancer."

 

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star canceled a series of appearances after she told followers that her husband was in the hospital.

 

She said, "Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital. 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's in the hospital not feeling well."

After 16days my hubby, my rock, my best friend @greggleakes returns to the Leakes household! This has been really hard on us, our children, family and closet friends. He has a long road ahead but God is good and life is precious!

She shared, "He has said to me over and over again, 'Go on, go out there, have a good time, do the show, I'm gonna be fine,' but I find it mentally very hard for me to do. 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."

 

Thankfully, he returned after 16 days in the hospital, and NeNe captioned a photo of his homecoming with: "After 16days my hubby, my rock, my best friend @greggleakes returns to the Leakes household! This has been really hard on us, our children, family and closest friends. He has a long road ahead but God is good and life is precious!"
