NeNe Leakes will go into the new season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” with a whole new attitude.

On this occasion, Leakes is not biting someone’s head off. This time, she has a reason for joy and elation. According to the longtime RHOA star, her husband Gregg Leakes is finally cancer-free.

“Look at God! We are overjoyed to say, we saw the doctors for the results of Gregg’s Pet Scan he took last week! Test show, wait for It…..WE ARE CANCER FREE!!! Yes God!” she captioned the post.

NeNe Leakes, 51, posted the photo of Gregg Leakes with the hand-written note on the car reading: “No cancer found!”

Gregg, 63, posted the same photo on his own IG account and heaped effusive praise on his wife for putting up with his admittedly nasty attitude during the long, arduous process of becoming free of cancer.

“Won’t He do it ……
Thank you Jesus & Praise God ……
Thank you ALL for your Prayers for me and please continue to Pray during my journey.. I thank my wife @neneleakes for being there for me.. Sometimes it wasn’t easy…”

Of course, an Instagram post from NeNe Leakes has to come with with a little shade:

“Now I can go give Gregg a black eye since so many thinks he’s abused [sic],” Leakes continued.

NeNe Leakes is referring to the times where she and Gregg Leakes considered separating because she said her husband had become extremely mean-spirited while undergoing chemotherapy for stage 3 colon cancer.

But now that fight is finally over.
