The fragile peace between frienemies Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes finally fell apart on Sunday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
The drama kicked off when NeNe met the “Tardy for the Party” performer mid-tour and witnessed Kim’s bossy behavior towards assistant Sweetie (or Sweeeeeee-tieeeeee, as Kim calls her). According to NeNe, Kim treated her employee like a slave, but Kim felt certain that wasn’t NeNe’s real problem.
“Clearly, she’s jealous of my success,” Kim reasoned.
The back and forth on the bus continued with multiple career-related digs and a requisite round of name-calling.
“You immature, dumb blonde… OK?” NeNe shouted.
“You’re a dumb bitch,” Kim shot back.
Soon NeNe lunged at Kim, but she couldn’t quite make contact, thanks to the rest of the tour bus crowd, who stepped in to stop the fight before things got physical.
