Nene Leakes: ‘A Prenup Is Simple Business’
Tonight, Nene Leakes’ gets married to her husband Greg for the second time. The couple had been married for several years before their marriage deteriorated on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, leading to a messy divorce.
In her new Bravo spinoff, I Dream of Nene: The Wedding, the Leakes reunited, Greg proposed for a second time, and Nene got a second chance at throwing an uber lavish wedding (with a $40,000 gift registry).
I spoke to Leakes about falling in love with Greg again, and the precautions she took to make sure both parties are protected this time around.
In the premiere episode, airing tonight, Leakes met with a divorce lawyer to draw up a prenup.
“It’s just a difficult thing to talk about. In real life, it is about business,” Leakes said of marriage. “I have been divorced before with the same person and I always tease Greg, because I know the way he fights in court.
“People look at prenups as a negative, and they really aren’t,” she continued. “There are ways to work out your problems before they even start. It was hard for me to ask Greg [to sign], and he waited until the very last minute.
“It’s not to say that I don’t want to share with you. It will be easier if we work our differences out now then if we were to ever get divorced again.
Even if we were to break up, I wouldn’t want to see him down in any way. I think a prenup is simple business, and it was a deal breaker for me.”
