Things may be looking up for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes after a tough year, at least in the romance department. Last summer, The Georgia peach revealed on Instagram Live with The Jasmine Brand that her late husband, Gregg Leakes, was once again battling cancer. By September, just a few months later, Lex had lost his battle with the disease.
Deep in the fall and throughout the holiday season, we’re beginning to notice a new man making his way onto the scene. We now know that the lucky man is Liberian businesswoman Niyoncilla Siwa, also known as the King of the Couture Suit. Sioh, who owns a high-end fashion company, Nyoni Couture, in Charlotte, North Carolina, flew a little south this week to Atlanta to celebrate the birthday of his new love.
On her recent celebration of her 54th birthday, Nene was seen smiling alongside her closest friends and family, including her son Brent Lex who had the party in her honor, and RHOA Division Porsha Williams. In one photo, Williams and fiancé Simon Jobadia stand to the right of Nene and new beau Siwa, who arrived elegantly in a lavender suit.
The leaks recently ended the dating rumors by exclusively confirming to The Shaderoom that the two were an item.
“We’re dating! We’re friends.” I told the news outlet.
She also confirmed that Greg had blessed him before his death.
“I will love Greg forever! Grief is hard! Even the hardest and depression alone. Greg and I had a very tearful conversation before he passed away. She told me his words were ‘Be happy and smile and whoever finds you finds a kind word.'”
Just a few days later, the couple was spotted kissing in Miami, where they celebrated Sioh’s birthday – big Sagittarius energy here. The video is now spreading all over social media.
In November while appearing on a daytime talk show, RealNene Leakes hinted at the possibility of her return to the Real Housewives franchise.
“I’m OK with returning to the show as long as we can work through a few things,” she told show hosts Garcelle Beauvais and Loni Love.
Although her return to the show hasn’t been confirmed yet, we’re looking forward to seeing this romance unfold on and off screen.
