Nene recently opened up about possibly dating again.

There’s no denying that navigating the dating scene after losing a spouse is no easy feat. However, it’s important to open up your heart to the possibility of love again, especially considering that your late spouse would likely want you to be happy in their absence. And Nene is no exception.

“Shoot your shot, let me see,” NeNe said on “The Real” about the possibility of dating. “You know, it’s interesting dating, actually ... A few of my friends have been calling me up and saying, ‘Being in the house by yourself, it makes you really depressed.' It makes me really think about Gregg."

She continued, “I’ve gone out with my girlfriends and we’ve met up with different people ... One of my friends, Peter, has introduced me to somebody and we just talked like, ‘Hi’ and whatever. One of my girlfriends introduced me to somebody ... Dating is hard, y’all. I don’t know how y’all do it!”
