NeNe Leakes' husband Gregg ailing in hospital

For the second time in a year, NeNe Leakes' husband Gregg has landed in the hospital, this time over unspecified issues.

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member posted the bad news on Instagram via video.

She chose to cancel two shows in New York.

“I find it very difficult to stand on stage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money’s worth knowing that my husband is in the hospital not feeling well,” NeNe said. “He has said to me over and over again, ‘Go on, go out there, have a good time, do the show, I’m going to be fine.’ But I find it mentally very hard for me to do that.”

“Gregg will be out of the hospital this week,” she continued. “He will be stronger, he will be better and we will be out here doing this show again in no time. Thank you for loving me! Thank you so much.”

In a later Instagram post, she said RadarOnline got it wrong by saying he was in the emergency room for 15 days and denied that he had issues regarding food poisoning or his heart.

Last November, Gregg landed in the hospital over a slow heartbeat but recovered. This episode was shown on an episode of "Real Housewives of Atlanta."
