Viewers know that the duo’s friendship hit a wall during Season 10, after Kim Zolciak’s daughter, Brielle, filmed and posted a vid of cockroaches scurrying in Nene’s bathroom. NeNe Leakes accused Kim of being racist, which set the stage for an explosive reunion taping. Kim cried foul, complaining that she was ganged up on, blurting that no other white woman would tolerate the cast. Kim’s allegation that Nene parked in a handicapped parking spot was also hashed out.
Their relationship took a turn after Gregg Leakes was diagnosed with cancer, and Kim reached out by sending a kind note and a care basket.
NeNe Leakes recently told Entertainment Tonight that she would love to see Kim return in the place of current co-star, Eva Marcille. Kim enjoys success in spinoff series, “Don’t be Tardy” — which is headed into its eighth season.
