On Wednesday, September 1, news broke that Gregg lost his battle with colon cancer. The 66-year-old was first diagnosed in 2018 and was then in remission for two years before the cancer returned in June 2021.
Publicist and family friend Ernest Dukes issued a statement to PEOPLE.com stating, "Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones and wife Nene Leakes."
With heartfelt tributes rolling in from other Real Housewives, celebs and fans alike, here are five of the most off-the-chain moments (both on and off the show) where NeNe and Gregg proved a couple who laughs together stays together.
MAKE IT RAIN
We love to see Gregg having the absolute best time in the club making it rain on dem…well you get the picture.
“WHAT’S WRONG WITH MY BACK?”
Gregg and NeNe always enjoyed having adorable one-on-one moments full of flirtation.
THE BEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME
Do you remember that one-time roaches were “allegedly” found in the bathroom for RHOA star Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s crib? Well at RHOA’s Kandi Burruss’ famous Halloween party, NeNe showed up as the exterminator while Gregg accompanied her as the roach! Talk about a petty good laugh.
THEY GOT THE MOVES
One thing Gregg and NeNe are going to do is dance and they had some moves to“Best of Me” by Anthony Hamilton in their walk-in closet.
LET EM KNOW GREGG
Gregg always carried himself with grace and class but one thing he didn’t play with was his lady. He was the first to always come to her defense during any number of the RHOA reunions.
