Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks is giving her support to NeNe Leakes if she does choose to start dating following the death of her husband, Gregg Leakes.
Speaking with Page Six, Parks said that “love conquers all.”
“If NeNe wants to find love, she is gorgeous and she’s got a great body. So I say, go after it, honey,” the licensed funeral director and mortician adds. “If that makes her happy, I support it. In my business, I see people die every day unexpectedly.”
Leakes recently appeared on her Instagram story thanking the “gentlemen” that had been sliding in her DMs on social media: “I love reading the messages. They are inspiring to say the least.”
On Sept. 1, Gregg lost his battle with stage 3 colon cancer at the age of 66. NeNe celebrated her late husband's life with several of her former RHOA castmates, including Porsha Williams, Eva Marcille, Marlo Hampton, Lisa Wu, and Parks.
Parks tells Page Six that NeNe has been trying her best to manage since her husband’s passing.
“I just talked to her last week and we laughed, so she is doing as good as anyone could expect from someone in her situation,” she noted. “It’s hard to lose a spouse, though. It’s hard to lose anyone but especially someone like Gregg, who absolutely adored NeNe. He was her biggest cheerleader, so it’s tough.”
