NeNe Leakes is in the middle of filming her comeback season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta — but it appears that a health scare has taken her husband, Gregg Leakes, out of the action.
Gregg had what doctors believed to be a stroke, while filming the Atlanta based reality show.
“The RHOA cameras filmed the entire ordeal for the show — including his visit to the emergency room and the aftermath.” A production snitch told Radar Online. “Gregg’s health serves as a major storyline for NeNe on season 10.”
“Although he is expected to make a full recovery, Gregg has been ordered to bed rest due to his age, family history and heavy work load,” the source added.
NeNe’s rep denied that a stroke had sidelined Gregg, but did admit that there was a health problem in the mix, as Season 10 takes shape. NeNe issued a statement, vaguely confirming a “health issue.”
“My husband Gregg, as you guys know, he’s my everything. We have been together for 20 years. We’re dealing with a little bit of a health issue right now, but prayers are going up and fingers are crossed that he’s going to be just fine.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is currently filming.
