Love is on the air for fan-favorite reality star and The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, NeNe Leakes. Leakes was all smiles as she appeared on The Real as a guest co-host in Jeannie Mai’s absence.
Leakes became a widow in September of last year after her husband, Gregg Leakes, passed away after a battle with cancer. Leakes shared her struggles as a wife and caregiver in bits and pieces through social media and her role as a cast member on RHOA.
The duo wed in 1997 and divorced in 2011 for irreconcilable differences. After repairing their relationship, Leakes and Gregg tied the knot again in a fabulous wedding in 2013. Death could only separate the pair since their second union.
Since Gregg’s passing, Leakes has decided to try love again with Nyonisela Sioh.
Leakes appeared on The Real in tow with her couturier beau, Sioh, who specializes in the design of suits. This is a definite sign things are going well between the two so much so, Leakes is comfortable going more public with her private life.
When Sioh came out to help close out the show, Leakes was seen smiling ear to ear.
”I wish you guys had smell-o-vision because Nyoni smells so good,” said Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, who was followed by Loni Love, who encouraged viewers to follow him.
“And please, follow him on IG, he makes the best suits,” she said.
Prior to this public appearance, Sioh and Leakes relationship had only been confirmed through a picture posted on social media in December. At the time, Leakes received backlash from users citing she had moved on too quickly and couldn’t have possibly finished grieving Gregg’s passing.
