After months of teasing the end of their friendship, we witnessed the beginning of NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak’s feud on Sunday’s (Jan. 16) episode. It’s just the most recent of their several parting of ways over the three seasons of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but this one seems to be sticking.
“I haven’t spoken to Kim in six months now,” NeNe tells Zap2it. “I will never speak to her again and I will never have anything to do with her again ever, because I have come to a place in my life in my life where I am comfortable. I don’t need drama. I don’t need people in my life who don’t lift my spirits.”
It all started when NeNe joined what we’ve come to affectionately call “the bust tour” and things started off fine, though Kim wasn’t happy that NeNe had joked about her in her Atlanta TV talk segment. But things went sour when NeNe expressed that she didn’t like the way Kim spoke to her assistant, Sweetie. That caused them to start brawling and things were said on both sides.
Kim said, “F***k you, B***h!” to NeNe and that set the Athens girl off. When she got up and moved toward Kim, we thought we’d get a repeat of the legendary strangling from last season. Luckily, Kandi Burruss and her crew stepped between them. To this day, NeNe says she doesn’t regret referring to Sweetie as a “slave.”
“Kim treats her like a slave,” she says. “Anybody who’ll let anybody talk to them, black, white, whatever color, talk to her like, ‘Get your Black a** up,’ or ‘Get my cigarettes, “B***h,’ you have to be a slave. Because there is nothing else in the world you can be to allow that. There’s not enough money in the world to allow someone to speak to you that way.”
Yet, there was a time when the two were close and NeNe admits Kim can be fun. “She’s a great person to go out, have a laugh, and tell a bunch of lies with. She’s good at that, but as far as being a 100 percent genuine, loyal girlfriend, she will never be good at that.”
So, is there any way the two can patch things up? Maybe, if Kim apologizes? NeNe says no.
“There’s nothing she can do to get my forgiveness,” she says. “I don’t want that in my life. If she apologizes and maybe I see her out, I’ll say hi. But as far as hanging out, I’m not into that.”
