    Fans have followed NeNe and Gregg's journey from a happy marriage to a devastating divorce on "The Real Housewives," which also documented their reconnection. Hoping to start their second marriage with a clean slate, NeNe is looking to rebuild relationships with Gregg's children, as well as reunite with her father figure Curtis.

    Of course, news of NeNe's upcoming nuptials filmed by Bravo's cameras shouldn't come as too much of a surprise as the "Glee" guest star told us back in January, "It's kind of getting big, and it might be on television." Gregg added, "It doesn't matter if it was on television or another planet, I'll take her wherever I can get her!" Awww!
