Real Housewives Of Atlanta: NeNe Leakes labels Kim ‘trash’… before Zolciak attacks her nemesis in angry ‘apology’
Kim Zolciak-Biermann laid into her arch enemy NeNe Leakes on social media on Sunday night, even as viewers were watching the two argue onscreen.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, who has confirmed she has left the show, said she was going to apologise, but then wrote: ‘We both know the truth, we both know that if I wanted to, I could have a law suit for the lies you have spewed, tweeting out fake texts, implying I am racist, attacking me physically, claiming my daughter tweeted negative about you and your home, we both know these are lies.’
Even as Kim goaded Nene in her ‘apology’, viewers were watching the two square off and trade angry insults during Sunday’s second reunion episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

Face to face: Kim and NeNe hurled insults at each from just a few feet away
You call that an apology? Kim’s tweet to Nene appeared to be goading her arch enemy
Fifty-year-old NeNe flew into a foul-mouthed rage at Kim, 39, and branded her ‘f***ing trash’ as they rehashed their season with Andy Cohen, 49, and their costars.
It appeared there was plenty more anger to come with a scene of Kim walking off the show being trailed ahead of next week’s reunion finale.
The animosity between the pair was obvious from the moment that Kim walked onto the set, after the other Housewives had already been taping without her.
As Kim walked out in a figure-hugging red dress the other women could be seen rolling their eyes at each other.

The driver: Kroy Biermann drove his wife Kim to the reunion
‘Is Kroy in the car park with the engine running?’ Andy asked referencing her husband Kroy Biermann.
‘Well, yes, he is here, but not with the engine running,’ said Kim coldly.
Andy told Kim that she looked ‘considerably younger’ than when the show started 10 years ago.
‘That has a lot to do with make-up,’ she replied awkwardly.
‘Your lips are considerably bigger,’ Andy bluntly replied.
Considerably bigger: Andy Cohen pointed out that Kim’s lips were ‘considerably bigger’ than when she started on the show 10 years ago
Moment decision: The 39-year-old reality star said her lips depend on how she’s feeling ‘in the moment’
‘Yes,’ conceded Kim.
‘Whats the end game for the lips?’ he asked.
‘It just depends on how am I feeling in the moment,’ she told him with a smile.
Andy then asked them about the ‘elephant party’ and NeNe said it was for the women to lay out their issues and get rid of the negative energy.
Together again: Cynthia Bailey confronted Kim about her condescending statement
Kenya then told the group that when Kim had walked into the room if got colder and she had looked around for clouds.
Andy then asked why Kim had told Cynthia to not have an opinion and sit there and be pretty.
‘It is condescending,’ said Kenya.
‘You always take a dig at me,’ added Cynthia.
Kim told her she did not remember saying that she ‘would not have got very far in life’ without her beauty as the show played the clip of her doing just that.
Digging away: The RHOA star said that Kim always takes digs at her
‘I don’t think that Cynthia necessarily has a backbone, I think she just goes with whatever, I don’t have an issue with Cynthia.’ said Kim.
‘Well, Kim, I don’t really think that you have any class but that is neither here nor there,’ said Cynthia.
‘Well that’s nice,’ said Kim.
That’s nice: Kim was told by Cynthia that she doesn’t have any class
‘Shut up and look pretty is a dig,’ insisted Andy.
Kim countered that Cynthia ‘has made a lot of money off her looks, there is nothing wrong with that.’
Andy then asked NeNe why she had an issue with Sheree Whitfield and NeNe told him she did not.
Eye roll: NeNe unleashed some epic eye rolls during the second part of the three-part reunion
‘The issue is right here,’ said NeNe as she motioned toward Kim.
NeNe said their issues had blown up after Kim ignored her at at a shopping mall and later denied ever seeing her there.
‘Who gives a f***?’, Kim shouted back at her as the pair traded insults that were entirely bleeped out by the producers.
Mall sighting: Andy listened as NeNe accused Kim of ignoring her at the mall
‘What I f***ing care about b**** is the s*** you did,’ said NeNe angrily as Kim sneered at her.
‘Own that s***,’ added NeNe wagging her finger.
‘I didn’t f***ing see NeNe,’ said Kim.
Own it: NeNe urged Kim to own her behavior
Kim then told the women she had been sent a picture of NeNe parked in a handicapped spot at the mall but had not seen her in person.
The pair’s anger toward each other then escalated quickly, with NeNe pointing in Kim’s face and telling her: ‘You better stay motherf***ing seated b****.’
‘All this bulls*** you gonna talk, talk it now. Talk it now,’ threatened NeNe as she was held back by Kandi Burruss.
Held back: Kandi Burruss held back NeNe as her anger grew
‘Put it up now b****, I am right here with you b****.’
NeNe then accused Kim of being jealous of her.
‘You are a hater, you are jealous, your mouth is f***ing reckless, you are f***ing trash,’ NeNe declared.
Harsh words: NeNe called Kim a jealous hater and trash
Then as the pair swore at each other NeNe stood up and shouted ‘I don’t give a f***!’
The episode opened with Porsha Williams telling Andy how much she had changed this season.
Marlo Hampton also had the same story for Andy and told him that she too had come a long way from her criminal past.

‘I was young and thought I could rule the world,’ she told him as she insisted most of her trouble was from probation violations.
Porsha also told Andy that the season had improved her relationship with NeNe and had given her hope for their friendship.
Kandi was not ready to improve her relationship with Porsha after she spread ‘damaging’ drugging and sex claims about her in previous seasons.

‘I am not pointing any blame on you, I hear you loud and clear, all of it was a bad choice and if that is what you feel is missing then you have it today, I would like to be done with that and I apologize for the situation and there is no but,’ said Porsha.
Kandi told her she was ready to let it go and the pair shook hands that they would move on together and stop bringing it up.
Kim was seen backstage asking Sheree about NeNe’s attitude.
Shook hands: Porsha and Kandi shook hands as they promised to move on together
‘Is she fired up? Because I don’t need that big b**** standing up yelling,’ Kim asked her.
Sheree told her it had been calm so far but the other women were ‘out there kissing her a**.’
NeNe was asked to address her ‘rape’ comments that blew up at a comedy show when she was heckled.

She told Andy that it had been a prepared Uber joke and that a woman had heckled her during it and told her to ‘kill myself.’
‘It happened very quickly,’ said NeNe.
Kandi, who fired NeNe from her tour as a result, told Andy that comics made mistakes in the heat of the moment and she had not held it against NeNe.

Too much: Andy could not hold back his laughter during the show
But Sheree said that as a victim of domestic violence herself she found the words hard to accept.
‘I have been supporting women of domestic abuse since the day I got here and I would never want to cause harm to anyone. It was a bad choice of words, I took responsibility for it and that’s all I can do,’ NeNe said.
NeNe told Andy she understood Kandi’s actions and the pair hugged each other.
Big hug: NeNe and Kandi shared an embrace together
Kandi said the pair had deliberately decided to ‘not shade each other.’
Marlo then turned her attention to Kenya and said she was tired off her insinuating she was a prostitute.
She told Andy that she had dated a billionaire in the past, but denied it was Ted Turner, and invested her money well.

Porsha urged the women to not call each other prostitutes and Kenya reminded her that for two years Porsha had accused her of being part of a prostitution ring.
‘She has no credibility at all,’ said Kenya as Porsha laughed and told her ‘You know that was true.’
Andy then brought out Eva, whose contractions Andy claimed were 10 minutes apart.
New addition: Eva Marcille joined the RHOA cast this past season
‘I am trying not to have a reunion baby,’ she told the ladies as she announced she had gotten engaged.
Andy then asked about Cynthia hitting on Kandi during the Barcelona trip.
Cynthia did not deny it and blushed as Kandi told them she had bought her a new pair of shoes.
Good times: Kenya, Cynthia and Porsha enjoyed a lighter moment together
‘I like playing around with Kandi, I like joking around with her,’ admitted Cynthia.
Andy then turned his attention to Cynthia and her man in the season, Will Jones.
He then asked Eva why she had spread rumors about Will being an ‘opportunist’ and that he had a girlfriend while dating her.
‘Will’s situation happened, how much of it you would like to live or dream is up to you, but my truth is still my truth, I met the man with a woman who he announced as his girlfriend,’ said Eva.
The truth: Eva insisted that Cynthia’s boyfriend Will Jones had a girlfriend when they started dating
Cynthia told him that she did not believe that Will had a girlfriend when they started dating.
‘He was single, to my knowledge. Will and I are taking some time apart,’ said Cynthia who revealed she was seeing someone else.
NeNe told them she did not think that Will was the right kind of man for Cynthia, who admitted she had not met ex-husband Peter’s new girlfriend.
The third and final part of the reunion will air next week on Bravo.
