FINDING LOVE AGAIN

Sioh, on the other hand, wore a short-sleeved navy blue suit. He complimented the look with black sandals and jewelry on his wrists.

Gregg then asked Leakes to move on with her life after he was gone.

Sources close to the couple say they met through Peter Thomas, the ex-husband to Leakes' "Real Housewives of Atlanta" costar, Cynthia Bailey's. Thomas and Sioh knew each other from North Carolina.

Though it is unclear when the two started dating, the first sight of the two together was at Leakes' 54th birthday party in Atlanta last week. The two danced together and got cozy, sparking rumors of a possible romance.

Even though Leakes had not publicly announced the relationship, their recent date seems to have put the rumors to rest. The Shade Room reports that Leakes had since confirmed that she was dating someone new.

Sources close to the couple say that Sioh owns a contour suit company in Noth Carolina. They also disclosed that Sioh is originally from Liberia, Africa.

GREGG'S FINAL WORDS

The actress seems lucky to have found love only three months after losing her husband, Gregg Leakes, to cancer. Gregg passed on in September following a 4-year-long battle with colon cancer.

Leakes opened up about Gregg's final days, saying he passed on surrounded by family and friends, who would take turns to sit with him around the clock.

Leakes disclosed that she had very candid conversations with her late husband of 25 years and made peace with what was happening.

While Gregg's passing hit Leakes hard, she took comfort in his final words to her. He said: "I'm not going to leave you. God is going to bless you."

Gregg then asked Leakes to move on with her life after he was gone. Even though it seemed like an impossibility at the time, Leakes took Gregg's advice and has found love in Sioh.
