Second Time’s the Charm: Housewife Star Re-Marries Her Husband

nene weddingNeNe Leakes, the unofficial star since 2008 of the popular unscripted reality TV show, “Housewives of Atlanta” re-married her husband Greg Leakes Saturday in Atlanta in front of 400 friends–to the tune of an $1.8 million dollar wedding.

The bride wore white and so did the nine bridesmaids, according to Us Weekly, as the event was filmed by Bravo for a special titled “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.”

The couple were married the first time in 1997, but during the filming of the show, filed for separation in 2011. They finalized their divorce in 2012.

The wedding boasted a reunion of sorts, with an array of former Housewives of fill-in-the-blank in attendance: Kim Zolciak, Phaedra Parks, Portia Stewart, Kandi Burruss and Lisa Wu (Atlanta), Gretchen Rossi and fiance Slade Smiley (Orange County), Marysol Patton (Miami) and Jill Zarin with her husband, Bobby (New York), and odd-woman out, Patti Stanger of the show “Millionaire Matchmaker”.
