Donald Trump advises NeNe to get the prenup or terminate the wedding ceremony. NeNe wants to make it clear that she isn’t asking for a prenup because she thinks she’s better than Greg now that she has reached star status. Some people have even voiced their opinion in other media outlets that Greg is getting back with NeNe because of her celebrity status.
Gregg hangs out with the groomsmen of the wedding where he shows gratitude to the men for being there for him during the tough divorce. “Just because you do something wrong doesn’t mean you can’t make it right.” Gregg adds. Peter Thomas is shocked that Gregg has five kids from his previous marriage. Were his children a well kept secret from everyone on the Housewives? Peter gives his two cents and advises Gregg to get the family tension resolved before walking down the aisle.
The biggest issue NeNe is facing is trying to get Gregg to communicate better, which was a major issue previously and the main reason for the divorce. Gregg agrees to bring the children to the house to have a family meeting. NeNe is adamant about Dr. Jeff mediating the visit.
When NeNe meets with three of her bridesmaids she wasn’t expecting drama to rain down on her happy parade. Diana, her friend from a hundred years ago has an issue with NeNe’s bridal party selection. She believes most of these ladies are riding on NeNe’s coattails and are trying to use her. Diana points at Marlo across the table and says she is an opportunist. NeNe is annoyed with Diana getting so emotional and crying and decides she won’t have a maid of honor in the ceremony, just strictly bridesmaids.
Gregg meets up with his sister and brother he hasn’t seen for five years. Really? What is really going on with Gregg and his estrangement from his family? And NeNe makes it known that she doesn’t know why he hasn’t seen his siblings either.
When the kids come over everyone seems to be okay hugging, laughing and enjoying a catered meal. Dr. Jeff arrives to mediate. Initially things go well. None of the children blame NeNe for the issues they have with their father. Damien, the oldest son, apologizes to NeNe for blasting her and Gregg on V103, a popular radio station in Atlanta.
Dr. Jeff quickly loses control when NeNe and Damien square off. Damien believes NeNe isn’t taking any responsibility for not trying to communicate with them outside of Gregg and she needs to “show a little respect to the bloodline.” NeNe refuses to be the fall guy for their family problems. Everyone’s eyes bounce back and forth like they’re watching a tennis match. Damien gets upset and walks out with Gregg and Dr. Jeff. Gregg makes the cameraman shut down so he can have a private moment with his son.
Is Gregg the one and only person to blame for the disconnect with his children and NeNe? Should NeNe have stepped up and demanded a relationship with her stepchildren regardless of Greggs involvement? Was Damien out of line?
