LEAKES LISTS HER GEORGIA HOME
Leakes, 53, listed the home in September, the same month her husband Gregg passed on following a four-year battle with colon cancer.
The couple purchased the five-bedroom, seven-bath house back in 2015 for just over $2 million after finding herself on the receiving end of criticism after renting several properties and getting evicted in 2008.

The couple lived in the beautiful home for seven years before Gregg's demise. Located just outside Georgia, the house sits on almost 10,000 square feet and features a complete wrap-around covered patio.
It also comes with a resort-style pool with waterfall features and two chef's kitchens. The master suite boasts of an enormous walk-in closet and his and hers double vanity, a free-standing tub, and a fireplace.
GREGG'S FINAL MOMENTS
The former RHOA star opened up about her husband's final days at their Georgia home, saying that they talked a lot and spent his last few days trying to deal with what was happening.
She told People that Gregg's last days were beautiful. All his children had been around, as were his best friends. She says they sat with him around the clock.
She describes how difficult it has been adjusting to losing her two-time husband but was quick to add that before Gregg passed on, he ensured that his wife and 22-year-old son, Brentt, were well taken care of business-wise.
The "Uncle Drew" actress says her husband wanted her to move on, and she wants to honor his wishes. She says she sat with her husband as he breathed his last and shared that her beloved husband's last words to her were:
"I'm not going to leave you. God is going to bless you."
Leakes and Gregg first married in 1997 and divorced in 2011. They later reunited and married again in 2013. The two share a son, Brentt. They, however, have other children from previous relationships.
Following her husband's demise, the actress held a memorial service at her Atlanta nightclub. Present were her RHOA costars, Phaedra Parks and Marlo Hampton.
