AceShowbiz - Is NeNe Leakes not taking coronavirus pandemic seriously any longer? The Bravo TV personality has been accused of putting her husband Gregg, who is a cancer survivor and had just been declared cancer-free a few months ago, at risk by not wearing a mask when she's around him.
Over the weekend, NeNe and her friend Alvin Mcqueen shared photos and videos from their Fourth of July celebration on a yacht. Wearing a neon blue swimsuit with cutouts on the stomach area paired with jean shorts and a hat, she posed next to Alvin and wrote in the caption, "What Sunday’s are made of #yatchlife."
Joining in on the fun, Gregg was seen in a video driving the boat. While he was wearing a mask, pulled down around his chin, exposing his mouth. No one else aboard the yacht, however, was seen covering their mouths in the video, prompting people to accuse NeNe of putting her husband in harm's way.
"Where is your mask?" asked one angry follower, which was echoed by other concerned users. Another commented, "They really playing with corona SMH." A third user added, "Y'all better get some masks while you're yachting!!!!!!!!!!!!" Someone else furiously noted, "right and Greg [sic] is sick. She going to kill him."
NeNe has not responded to the backlash, but she previously scolded her youngest son Brent for ignoring social distancing while they were still in self-isolation. "First of all, I'm upset with my youngest son. And I'm upset because he had been doing good, he had been staying in since this whole thing started," she said on Instagram Live back in March. "And the last couple days, he said, 'I really want to get out and go ride round.' "
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star continued, "His dad and I was like, 'Okay. Just ride around, just get your car around and comeback. Do social distancing, Don't talk to anybody, blablabla.' Today, he asked if he could go out again and when I called, I heard all the guys in the background. So I know that he was around guys."
The 52-year-old then shared that she was pissed off because "after 8 o'clock, he just now headed this way--his curvew is 9. And he could have me or Gregg sick. That's my whole thing."
She went on blasting young people, "A lot of young people don't understand how serious this is. Especially, for someone that has had some sort of health issue in the past. So I'm not here not only am I going to be screaming at Brent, I'm talking to all young people that say some of the things that Brent has said to me. He said to me that 'you guys are just reading too much stuff.' "
Later, she revealed that she asked Gregg to talk with their son "or I'm going to be telling him, 'Do not comeback in the house. Like, you have to go somewhere else.' "
