Nene Leakes has made a grand effort to keep her husband Gregg Leakes on the up and up as he continues to fight cancer but the stress of it all means “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star needs to find a way to unwind.
“I know it sounds weird but when I’m stressed, shopping helps me🤷🏽♀️ I suddenly become happy😂,” Nene, pictured bending over to strap on a glittery high-heel, captioned her Monday, Oct. 15 Instagram post.
“#shoewhoreproblems” Nene scribbled in her IG story on the same photo.
Fans could relate to the reality star and Swagg Boutique owner’s need for some retail therapy.
“Me too! Somehow it helps to relieve whatever it is you are feeling. Therapy method!! 😊😍”
“Girl it’s like THEE BEST way to relieve stress. Hands down.”
“So therapeutic ❤️🙌🏾”
“Not weird at all it’s therapeutic I do the same thing shopping makes me happy.”
“Definitely takes the blues away and I’m sure with your account all stress is gone for weeks! Keeping rising blessings on blessing!!”
“Nope definitely not weird. The weird part is when you get home and unpack all the stuff you bought and act surprised as if you didn’t just pick it out. 😂😂😂”
“Lol I thought I was the only one who felt like this it’s not weird at all girl @neneleakes may God continue to bless you so you can keep shopping keep Gregg in my prayers.”
Nene has been by her husband’s side since his cancer sprung up around May. At the time, she canceled a set of comedy shows in order to be by his side. And when Gregg recently underwent another surgery, Nene was there to help him and drive him home.
Still, the road to recovery hasn’t been smooth as the former actress has tweeted about how mean Gregg has been since coming home.
“When people are sick, is it normal for them to be mean,” she admitted on Oct. 6. “They talk mean to the person that’s helping? So stressful.”
