Nene told People: "The last five days before his passing was really beautiful. All of his children were there. His best friends were there. Our closest friends were there. We all sat with him around the clock."
"We talked a lot, and we made peace with what was happening.
She shared some of her late husband's last words to her were "I'm not going to leave you. God is going to bless you."
"He said he wanted me to move on with my life."
Nene had been Gregg's caretaker since he was first diagnosed with cancer, sharing: "It was difficult.
"Gregg handled a lot of things in our life. There were some things I didn't know — some of the simple things. I didn't even know who the lawn guy was."
Nene went on: "I was having to ask him questions like that. "And he said to me, 'If you go into my office and look on the wall, I left an envelope taped to the wall.'
"And so I went and looked on the wall and there was a manila folder he had stuck to the wall that said, 'Open this if anything ever happens to me.' When I opened it up, he had a letter to Brentt (their 22-year-old son) and telling us certain things like, where we needed to pay stuff and who was the accounting person to talk to because we didn't know anything.
"And I thought to myself when I looked through all the stuff that he had written and the things that he had left, that that took a lot of strength."
Nene also shared of Gregg's final days: "I told him I wouldn't have chosen another husband other than him. I said, 'I married you twice, crazy man."
She was also there for him when he took his last breath, recalling: "He took a deep breath, and then he stopped.
"I thought I would be scared, but I just held him and kissed him."
"I keep thinking to myself he's away on a trip and he'll be right back. I'm still waiting for him to come home."
Earlier this month, Nene unveiled a new look as she "pushes through" after her husband's death.
She shared since his passing she has had "good days and bad days."
She showed off a new blonde hairdo and made-up face as she drove home from the salon in Georgia.
Nene of trying to adjust to her new normal: "I played with brown for a while, and now that I'm adjusting to my new life, my new normal, I thought I'd go back blonde.
She continued: "I'm trying to keep my mind off…. you know events that happened recently.
"I'm trying to push through with a blonde wig on."
"I have good days and bad days, they say it's normal, today I felt like going to the salon which is good," she explained.
Earlier this month NeNe held a memorial for Gregg with a special performance by Tamar Braxton.
NeNe, 53, joined her RHOA co-stars Marlo Hampton and Phaedra Parks for a celebration of her late husband's life at her Atlanta nightclub.
The TV star looked cheerful as she posed alongside friends for photos and enjoyed cocktails while remembering her long-time love.
NeNe and her entourage dressed in all black while singing and dancing to songs in Memorium of Gregg.
