Though the cast members have warned fans about the drama, it seems some good may have come from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion.
After very public disputes that date back as far as season 1, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak may have buried the hatchet.
“Just had the best chat wit @KimZolciak!” tweeted NeNe Wednesday. “Now I see @BrielleZolciak is following me! I just pulled off the road 2 cry. This is 2 much.”
Kim, who once considered NeNe a threat to her physical well being after being aggressively confronted by her on more than one occasion, cosigned.
“My heart is at such peace @neneleakes best chat ever! See u soon! #onwardandupward,” she wrote.
NeNe and Kim were present at the taping of the reunion show; although, Kim left the series at the beginning of season 5. Fans will have to watch the three-part event in April to find out whether anything that transpired there led to the ladies’ reconciliation. However, Wednesday’s season 1 marathon, which displayed their friendship during better days, may have also been a catalyst.
Season 1 fans may remember that their differences over Kim’s “Tardy for the Party” helped fuel the fire between the women. Originally, NeNe was supposed to record the song with Kim, who ultimately chose to perform it solo with the help of Kandi Burruss. Ironically enough, it’s now Kandi and Kim who seem to have beef.
The problems between NeNe and Kim reached their climax after NeNe accused Kim of treating her friend/assistant Sweetie Hughes like a slave.
However, the two have apparently put their differences behind them and NeNe even invited Kim to her upcoming wedding to ex-husband Gregg. “She’s invited to my wedding, and I believe she will come. I’m extending an olive branch,” NeNe told InTouch magazine.
Though they have missed out on a few special occasions as of late, including Kim’s latest baby shower, the “Google Me” artist said she plans to be there for NeNe’s big day.
“I have always been and I continue to be happy for NeNe, and I look forward to being invited to the wedding. NeNe and I started this journey together and although we have had our ups and downs, I am excited to get our friendship back on track,” Kim told InTouch. “We were friends long before ‘RHOA,’ and we will be friends long after ‘RHOA’ if it’s up to me.”
