"We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family & allow them to mourn in private during this very very difficult time."

Gregg's Stage 3 colon cancer diagnosis was first confirmed in June 2018. After that, NeNe and Gregg had been open about his journey and often shared updates. In an interview with The Daily Dish in November 2018, Nene opened up about the emotional journey of Gregg's cancer diagnosis. "The moment we found out he had cancer, everything about our life changed," she said at the time.

In September 2019, he appeared on The Wendy Williams Show with NeNe and confirmed that, at that time, he was cancer-free. However, in June of this year, Nene shared that his cancer had returned then last month NeNe addressed Gregg's condition again.

NeNe and Gregg married in 1997 and remarried again in 2013 following a brief divorce. Together NeNe and Gregg had one son Brentt; they each also had children from previous relationships.

In an interview with popular Instagrammer “RHONJ Obsessed,” “Real Housewives” star Jennifer Aydin revealed that the release of Season 12 has been delayed. Fans can expect the show to premiere some time in February 2022. The show was originally going to air in late 2021 or early 2022, and has been pushed back at least a month.

Topic 5: ‘RHONY’ Season 13  Reunion Canceled After Eboni K. Williams Reportedly 'Filed A Formal Complaint' Against Ramona Singer Over Alleged Racist Behavior

As we previously reported, The Real Housewives of New York City last season's reunion was canceled after it was pushed back many times. 

According to a report, the reunion was canned after Eboni K. Williams filed a complaint against Ramona Singer's alleged racist behavior.

Page Six reported the following: 

The “Real Housewives of New York City” Season 13 reunion was canceled following an investigation into Ramona Singer’s alleged racist behavior, according to a new report.

The probe was launched after Eboni K. Williams filed a complaint over a racially insensitive comment that Singer, 64, allegedly made to her, multiple sources told TMZ Friday.

It is unclear what the remark was, but Williams, 38, reportedly came forward after she learned a crew member had made a similar complaint against Singer.

During the investigation, cast and production crew were interviewed, and Singer was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, according to the site.

However, since the probe caused production delays, Bravo reportedly felt it was “too late” to film a reunion for an “already low-rated season.” A source told TMZ, “There were concerns about who would tune in three months later.”

Bravo confirmed the Season 13 reunion was axed on Sept. 17. A network rep told Page Six at the time that the cancellation was due to “scheduling challenges.”
