NeNe Leakes revealed a fellow Bravo Housewives star gave her a generous gift for her summer wedding.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star saidTuesday that Teresa Giudice gave her set of Hermes China as a gift for her second wedding, Enstars revealed. The real shocker about the news is that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star did not attend Leakes' June 22 nuptials.

Giudice sent her the lavish gift that was included in the Leakes' wedding registry at Neiman Marcus and Geary's department stores. Leakes' wish list included $40,000 worth of home goods and $7,200 worth of China, according to the In Touch Weekly.

Leakes said the purchase must not have dipped too far into Giudice's pockets because when she saw Giudice on Monday, "she didn't ask for it back," Leakes said in the media call.

Leakes walked down the aisle in a $50,000 white Baracci dress on her wedding day. The ceremony cost a whopping $1.8 million and was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Atlanta. Gregg Leakes slipped a 10-carat diamond band ring onto her finger, next to her 15.2-carat engagement ring. And Judge Mathis, of the Judge Mathis TV show, officiated the nuptial, according to reports. The Leakes' spinoff, I Dream Of Nene: The Wedding, documented the wedding planning as well as their ceremony.

The couple had a host of celebrities not only attend her wedding as guests, but also partake in her bridal party.

According to Us Weekly, fellow reality stars Kim Zolciak (Dont Be Tardy, TRHOA), Jill Zarin (TRHONY), Gretchen Rossi (TRHOC) Omarosa (Celebrity Apprentice) and Marysol Patton (TRHOM) joined the festivities. Additionally, actress Vivica Fox, Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond, The Young & Restless star Victoria Rowell and Michelle Epps, the wife of comedian Mike Epps, were also present to see the Leakes exchange vows, according to Radar Online.

NeNe had nine bridesmaids, two of which were her RHOA castmates Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Thomas. Basketball Wives' LA star Laura Govan and Basketball Wives Miami cast member Jennifer Williams were also at the bridal party. Al Reynolds, ex-husband of former The View host Star Jones, was also one of the groomsmen. 

NeNe and Gregg first met in 1996 and got married for the first time in 1998. But the couple was divorced in 2011 after 13 years of marriage. Together they have a son, Brentt, 14. NeNe also has a son from a previous relationship. Gregg reportedly said that the couple split when "fame got to [NeNe's] head" after he had invested $300,000 in her career during their marriage. Their reconciliation was revealed during season 5 of TRHOA.

Bravo's I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding premieres Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
