Nene Leakes, whose affair with couture suit king Nyonisela Sioh surfaced three months after the death of her husband Gregg Leakes, has said that during one of their final chats, her late husband offered her his approval to move on.

Gregg Leakes died in September from colon cancer. Although it’s amazing how long Nene and Sioh have been dating, according to TMZ, they met through Peter Thomas, the ex-husband of Cynthia Bailey, Nene’s former “RHOA” co-star.

In an interview with The Shade Room on Saturday, December 18, Nene shared some of Gregg’s final words:


“I will love Gregg forever & ever! Grieving is hard! Even harder & depressing alone.

“Gregg and I had a very tearful conversation before his passing. His words to me were ‘be happy, keep smiling and he who finds you, has found a good one.’”

Just three months after Gregg’s death, NeNe was pictured with new boyfriend Sioh, who joined the former “Glee” star to her 54th birthday celebration last week.

She published a series of Instagram Stories and images from her son Brentt’s birthday celebration, in which she flaunted her handsome new boyfriend in multiple shots.
