In the viral clip, which was first obtained by It’s OnSite, we see Nene, 53, talk about her 66-year-old husband’s health. While speaking to the crowd at the lounge, we see the Bravo star address the customers who called her “rude” for not acknowledging their birthday.
While speaking to the crowd, Nene opened up about her personal pain and said referring to Gregg’s battle with colon cancer: “My husband is transitioning to the other side.”
She further said to the customer: “You don’t know what we’re dealing with right now.” The Bravo alum also detailed that she was present at the lounge because it’s her business and she needs to look after it.”
Nene goes on to directly address the customers in question saying” “So, when people approach and say, ‘you’re rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday,’ my husband is at home dying. I don’t want to say ‘happy birthday,’ okay?”
However, in June this year, Nene revealed to the world that Gregg’s cancer had returned. At the time, he went into surgery but had to unexpectedly stay at the hospital for six weeks.
