NeNe Leakes is moving on with her life and finding new love again three months after her husband, Gregg Leakes, passed away.
The 54-year-old The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum was seen in Miami on Saturday, December 18, exiting a restaurant with her new beau. TMZ reported that her new boyfriend is Nyonisela Sioh, a businessman.
NeNe has already made their relationship Instagram official by sharing photos with her new boyfriend where they’re partying with her friends during her surprise birthday bash. The reality star didn’t exactly identify the businessman in her post, she did tell The Shade Room that’s she’s already dating Nyonisela, adding, “Were friends.”
NeNe’s husband, Gregg, died in September after battling with colon cancer. Despite having someone new, she said, “I will love Gregg forever & ever! Grieving is hard! Even harder & depressing alone.”
Further, she assured everyone that she has Gregg’s blessing in terms of finding love after he’s gone. She explained, “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.'”
The couple got married in 1997 and were together for 14 years before divorcing in 2011. However, they remarried in 2013. NeNe said, “You know I have a whole group of people that’s coming to my house every day doing different stuff with me, so trying to keep my mind off of, you know, the events that recently happened.”
She also changed her hairstyle. According to her, it felt good being around others at the salon while she was grieving over her husband.
She shared, “I have good days and bad days, but yeah, they say it’s normal. Some days I’m up, some days I’m down. Today, I felt like going to the salon, so that was good. I normally don’t go to the salon. I usually let people come to my house. So today I decided to drive to the salon and actually sit in the salon with other women. That was good to be around other people. So yeah, good days and bad days. Pushing through.”
