Ooh, this is terrible!
Yet another cheating scandal has rocked the Real Housewives franchise, except this one is more than a bit of a shock. Even after his wife, Nene Leakes, stood by him throughout his cancer treatments, Gregg Leakes allegedly can't keep control of what's in his pants — and he reportedly got his side chick pregnant! So who is Gregg Leakes' (alleged) mistress, and did he really get her pregnant?
This isn't the first time that Leakes has been accused of being unfaithful. Two years ago, some previously unseen footage from a taping of The Real Housewives of Atlanta revealed that Nene Leakes had proof that her husband cheated on her, and needless to say, she was absolutely devastated. Even Gregg Leakes' attitude about "cheating" leaves some questions open, to say the least.
So who is the latest (alleged) mistress of this RHOA star? Let's look at what we know about these latest rumors.
1. Who is Gregg Leakes' alleged mistress? While her name hasn't been revealed, her existence was implied thanks to Wendy Williams.
On a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the gossip queen alleged that she had a private conversation with Nene Leakes, and it was during this private conversation that Leakes revealed that she was reportedly quitting the show. "I've got to say something, but I'm not going to say a whole lot. I know something about NeNe that will make you all cry, be sad, feel bad for her — she's carrying the weight of a huge thing on her shoulders," Williams said on her show, leading people to believe that this was a sign that Leakes was quitting the show.
But it was Leakes' subsequent reaction — we'll get to that — that revealed that Williams may not have been hinting about her leaving RHOA, but about her husband's latest round of infidelity.
2. Leakes blasted Williams on Twitter for violating the "girl code."
Williams must have hit the assessment pretty close to the mark because right after her episode aired, Leakes took to Twitter to fire back at Williams' "violation" of the so-called "girl code." Though she didn't mention Williams by name, more than a few fans believed that her comment on Twitter below was a direct shot at Williams's revelation on her show.
3. Shortly after Leakes blasted Williams, the alleged "pregnant side chick" was revealed.
Even though Williams didn't directly address Gregg Leakes' infidelity, a source close to the Leakes' and Williams revealed that not only was Gregg Leakes unfaithful to Nene, but he got the alleged side chick pregnant in the process. "I hope I’m not breaking any rules but I have a few family members who work in reality TV in Atlanta. One who used to work for this show and another who does Kenya’s makeup. All of their tea has always been accurate. Mama’s Joyce’s streets are saying Gregg had someone pregnant around the time he was diagnosed with cancer. Nene planned to leave then but couldn’t because of the diagnosis. Allegedly, he never stopped seeing the chick and Nene found out," revealed the source.
4. Leakes' representatives haven't been clear about whether she's leaving RHOA or if her husband's infidelity has something to do with it.
Though speculation about Leakes' status on the show has, of course, spread like wildfire — is she leaving RHOA so she doesn't have to answer the questions about her husband's infidelity? — her reps confirmed, in an official statement, that no official decisions have been made about her status on the show as of yet. "It’s been an especially difficult couple of weeks for NeNe and she was venting to her friend in private correspondence. Nothing has been confirmed or officially decided for next season," they said.
5. Nene Leakes also threw shade at Williams on Instagram.
Right after the show, and shortly after she made the post on Twitter about what seemed to be the "private conversations" that Williams revealed, Leakes took to her Instagram to throw what seemed to be more shade at Williams. "Who said that?! SMH!" she captioned a surprised photo on Instagram, which you can check out below.
6. The Leakes' haven't commented on Gregg Leakes' alleged infidelity, but he's cheated on his wife in the past.
Even though the Leakes' haven't officially commented on this latest accusation of Gregg Leakes' infidelity, he's rumored to have cheated on Nene Leakes in the past. Nene herself said as much last year, and while she could have left him then, shw saw him through his cancer treatments, which made them work on their marriage.
