NeNe Leakes’ ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ co-stars, including Phaedra Parks, came out to pay tribute to the reality star’s late spouse.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta gathered on Monday, September 6 to pay tribute to Gregg Leakes, who died on Wednesday, September 1 at the age of 66, from stage 3 colon cancer.
Gregg’s wife, NeNe, 53, organized the memorial service, which appeared to be a meaningful and emotional occasion. Her fellow RHOA cast members were in attendance to express their support for their buddy and co-star.
Many of NeNe’s co-stars shared clips from the event on their Instagram Stories. In every way, the gathering looked to be a celebration of Gregg. Porsha Williams, 40, demonstrated how the space was set up for Gregg’s homage. She shared a video with loud music playing in the background while sparklers exploded in front of a projected image of Gregg.
Also present were balloons and old photographs of NeNe’s late spouse. Marlo Hampton, 45, shared a video of herself and NeNe singing and dancing in front of a projected image of Gregg with a band. Phaedra Parks, 47, also shared a short video of herself, Marlo, and fellow RHOA alum Eva Marcille, 36, during the event.
Falynn Guobadia, 31, also shared images from the party and expressed gratitude to NeNe for having her. “May God continue to strengthen you at this trying time. In her caption, Falynn wrote, “Our prayers are with you and your family.”
NeNe had already declared that she would remember Gregg’s life with friends by posting a photo of herself kissing him on Monday. “Today we celebrate you Gregg with love, exactly the way you wanted it,” she wrote alongside a broken heart emoji in the caption.
Following Gregg’s passing, NeNe paid tribute to him in a variety of ways, including a lovely snapshot of the couple kissing. The RHOA star shared a lovely video of the couple dancing on Instagram the day after he died, captioned with a sequence of hearts and broken hearts. Brentt, the couple’s 22-year-old son, also shared a series of photos of his father after his death. “Damn, I miss my daddy so much.” Rest Up Pop, Love You,” he captioned the photo.
