Nene Leakes just received a The “Woman Of Achievement” Award from the Associates Of Breast & Prostate Cancer And John Wayne Cancer Institute. The award was granted to Nene because of her exceptional work as her husband Gregg’s caretaker.
Gregg Leakes is currently fighting for his life, he was diagnosed with late stage colon cancer last year.
Many fans of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star are surprised that Nene was granted the award, because the Bravo show didn’t paint Nene as the best caretaker of Gregg.
For example, during the taping of last season’s Atlanta Housewives, Nene was seen dropping Gregg off at the hospital for cancer surgery – and making him take an Uber home because she was “too busy” to pick him up..
Also, Nene was constantly complaining about her husband’s behavior while on medication. Nene told the other housewives that she was considering divorcing Gregg, and letting him get through cancer alone.
But the Associates Of Breast & Prostate Cancer And John Wayne Cancer Institute looked past the messy Bravo show, and determined that Nene deserved the award.
