NeNe Leakes, Atlanta resident and veteran cast member of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, recently set up residence in Hollywood Hills, California. Leakes has made yet another bold move. In a style best defined as “watch, while I do me”, Leakes opens up her wedding to the public. In what most celebrities would choose to have as a private family moment, Leakes bares all (or most) in Bravo TV reality series, “I dream of Nene – the wedding”.
“The theme of our wedding was Old Hollywood Glam. We had white satin on the chairs with crystals dangling on the back. Chandeliers graced the ceilings. Candles were glowing. White chiffon covered the walls. We asked our female guests to wear long gowns and we asked the gentleman to wear full suits and/or tuxedos. Everything sparkled! Everything was glamorous! It was everything!”

NeNe Leakes makes her debut of marital reincarnation with husband, Gregg Leakes public in their new Bravo TV reality series, “I dream of Nene – the wedding”. The show premieres on September 17, 2013, 9pm/8pm on Bravo.
NeNe Leakes is currently working the circuit, making appearances on several talk shows, such as Ellen, The Today Show, ET omg!, Access Hollywood Live and more. From her spotlight beginnings on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta” in 2008, Leakes career has been on a skyrocket of success, with additional roles on “Celebrity Apprentice”, “Glee” and “The New Normal”. The public loves NeNe Leakes, or, at best, loves to hate her! With the “I dream of NeNe – the wedding” Facebook page having over 15,000 Facebook fans already on board, exhibited by “Likes”, it seems this new endeavor will be nothing less than a success.
The Leakes were originally married in 1997. They have one son, Brentt, together and NeNe has a son, Bryson, from a previous union. Gregg has several other children but they have not been incorporated into the public television affairs of Bravo’s “ Real Housewives of Atlanta”. The couple experienced a very public rocky road, which led to their divorce, on September 29, 2011, amidst several exchanges of angry words and tearful accusations. Matters were not helped much by their son’s, Bryson’s, legal infractions during his transition into adulthood. But always the fighter, NeNe Leakes took matters into her own hands and reigned in her marriage and family unit. The couple were remarried on June 22, 2013, at the Intercontinental Buckhead Hotel, in Atlanta, Georgia.
“I’m very non-traditional. I had my boys walk me down the aisle. That meant a lot to me to be able to reunite this family. We walked down to Whitney Houston’s “I Believe in You and Me.” We had our beautiful bridesmaids also wear white.”

Although the Leakes wedding was sure to be wonderfully “everything”, as NeNe Leakes described, devoted fans will most likely be watching to see glimpses of the more abrasive side of NeNe Leakes gone “bridezilla” Bravo TV style . ( “Bridezilla” is a We TV television series which highlights the less than glamorous side of wedding planning and execution of real weddings and the brides that lose their mental stability under the stress of it all.)
Will you be watching NeNe do her tonight?
What do you think about her bridesmaids wearing white?
