End of treatment: In May 2019, the couple celebrated after Gregg, now 66, was officially declared cancer-free.

Their marital tensions reached a critical point during an RHOA reunion in April 2019 when Gregg joined his wife of more than 20 years.
During another meeting, Andy Cohen asks what they both want. ‘Save the marriage’? And Gregg replied firmly: ‘I can.’
NeNe, however, apparently declined to make the same announcement.
‘I can’t tell you what I’m going to do,’ she said. ‘I feel like I’m being pushed against a wall. And I’m like, ‘No!’

When Cohen said the cancer diagnosis seemed to make “Everything was exponentially worse” for them, Nene agreed it had added “stress” but stressed that it was not a major issue.
‘Greg isn’t going for a walk in the park. even though he doesn’t have cancer He’s not a walker in the park,” she admits.
‘Sometimes I’m in trouble,’ agrees Greg. ‘I’m not the poster child for peace. No one is perfect.’
She admitted that they were in discussions and were no longer sleeping in the same room, saying that ‘our relationship is not very good’.
NeNe and Gregg were married for the first time in 1997 and divorced in 2011. However, they reunited and married a second time in 2013.
