NeNe Leakes is giving dating another shot after tragically losing her husband to cancer.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is dating a businessman named Nyonisela Sioh … sources close to the new couple tell TMZ. We’re told NeNe’s new man owns a couture suit company in Charlotte, NC and he hails from Liberia, Africa … though it’s unclear how long they’ve been dating.
It’s interesting… our sources say, Peter Thomas, the ex-husband of fellow ‘RHOA’ star Cynthia Bailey, played matchmaker here … introducing NeNe to Nyonisela.

NeNe sparked dating rumors this week when she was pictured standing next to a handsome man at her birthday party in Atlanta.
The birthday bash, a surprise organized by her son Brentt, went down at NeNe’s Linnethia Lounge in Georgia and she was surrounded by family, friends and celebs like Keke Wyatt and Porsha Williams … plus Nyonisela, the fella in the purple suit.
NeNe’s foray back into the dating scene comes 3 months after she lost her husband, Gregg, to a long battle with cancer. They were married for over 20 years.
