NeNe Leakes is engaged – again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has finally confirmed her second engagement to Gregg Leakes after rumors had been flying that the pair would be tying the knot again soon.
After a series of romantic dates where Gregg wined and dined his reality star ex-wife, it was only a matter of time before NeNe was crowned as Gregg’s wife once again.
Gregg proposed to his ex-wife again on New Year’s Eve and the reality star turned actress couldn’t help but tweet the adorable scene that Gregg set up for her.
A trail of rose petals led the Real Housewife back to the bedroom where she discovered a heart of Hershey’s Kisses on the bed and a Hershey’s Kiss “G” and “N” on the table.
Of course no proposal would be complete without some champagne on ice and a plate of strawberries.
After tweeting the photos, the 45-year-old The New Normal actress also tweeted a telling statement saying “My Answer Was Yes.”
The big news wasn’t confirmed, however, until Leakes appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and saved the big scoop for her good friend.
Despite skirting around the engagement news during an earlier appearance on the Today show yesterday morning, she opened up to Fallon after he did a little poking and prodding.
“You start tweeting out these photos… So, I’m going, ‘Are you engaged,’” the late night talk show host asked the outspoken actress. “Can you say something?”
That’s when one of the most memorable parts of the entire show happened.
“Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question,” NeNe answered. “Will. You. Marry. Me. Again?”
Leakes slowly recited the question to build a little suspense before Fallon literally jumped out of his seat to congratulate NeNe on the big news.
She was definitely saving the scoop for Jimmy after she remained mum during her Today show appearance.
