In a new brutally honest YouTube video titled “Nene Leakes: My Thoughts and Opinions…Ladies Night Comedy Tour!” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared her thoughts on being a caretaker and revealed what she really thinks when her ill husband is rude to her.
“There’s a lot of things that go through your head,” NeNe, 51, began, speaking about being a caretaker. “And people don’t know that. I want to show some love to all the caretakers because what goes through your head is — I’m just saying this for real, please don’t put this against me. I’m just saying this for real.”
She said that caretakers tend to reflect on their relationship with the sick person they are caring for, but those thoughts can quickly turn dark, depending on the bond between them.
“You look at the person and think about, you know people love to say, ‘Karma is a bitch’ and karma this and karma that. Honest to God, I’m giving y’all the raw, raw, raw. You look at the person and be like, ‘What is that?’ Now, that ain’t right, right? But you’re human,” NeNe continued.
RadarOnline.com readers know Gregg, 63, has been suffering from stage 3 colon cancer since June 2018. Apart from the toll it’s taken on his physical and mental health, the illness has also caused a great strain in his marriage to NeNe.
Continued the star in her video: “You look at the person and say, ‘You did so many different things to me. Is this the payback?’ You hope not. I’m taking about a caretaker, caretaker. ‘Maybe you’re getting it back from that time you cheated on me.’ You don’t never know. You don’t ever know. But as a caretaker, these are the thoughts that go through your head because the medication got them on a roller coaster ride, and they lash out on you. It’s a lot, it’s a lot.”
Radar recall that three months ago, RHOA featured an episode in which NeNe confessed to the ladies that husband Gregg had cheated on her.
“There were many days when I just thought I was going to divorce Gregg,” she said at the time.
The two have been married since 1997, but recently, their romance has begun to go downhill.
Ever since Gregg was diagnosed with cancer, NeNe has been outspoken about his disrespectful attitude. On social media and on the Bravo show, she often accuses him of being mean and “evil” to her. Even the ladies revealed she talks badly behind his back.
Though Gregg publicly apologized for his “grouchy” behavior towards her, the star has made it clear their marriage is hanging by a thread despite his ongoing health battle. In the latest RHOA reunion, she even admitted he suggested they separate for good.
