The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 trailer was lit. Just when I thought I couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming the season, it turns out that they’re still filming and there’s some SERIOUS drama going down. It was all good between OG cast members NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak up until very recently when shit really hit the fan.
The two of them are going to war on social media, so I can’t even imagine hard they are coming for each other during feeling. Kim’s daughter Brielle Biermann is also at the center of controversy thanks to a video she shot from NeNe’s bathroom with a guest appearance from some roaches. NeNe is accusing the mother daughter duo of being racist. It’s getting very ugly and I’m just thankful I took screen shots immediately because I cannot believe these posts are still up. Isn’t this revealing a little too much of the story line? Oh well, let’s dive into the drama.
NeNe raised some eyebrows when she posted a selfie on her way home from the cast trip to Spain and the hype wasn’t about the photo. It was all about the shady captions and hash tags. NeNe wrote, “On the way back to the A, I fell asleep thinking about how imma live in my ROACH infested brand new home ” along with these colorful hash tags: “#jealousprejudicebitch #disgusting #howlowwillyougo #ohithoughtyoudidntseeme #pottymouthtrashychildren #learnedbehavior #donteverspeaktome #thisiswhyiwouldntdoashowwithyou #youwillneverwinthis #blackpeopleneedtostopsupportingtheprejudice.”
Most of these hash tags could have applied to a lot of people in the cast, but the one that says “this is why I wouldn’t do a show with you” VERY strongly alluded to a beef with Kim. If you recall, they had a Kim and NeNe show in the works a couple years ago that just never came to fruition with no real explanation. Even though, the besties turned enemies turned frienemies (a million times over) seemed to be on good terms for a long time. Obviously that’s not the case these days.
NeNe was done alluding to animosity and just came right out and tagged Brielle in an Instagram post that included the immediately infamous video of Brielle on the ground looking into a mirror in NeNe’s bathroom until the camera zoomed in on some roaches. NeNe tore into Brielle in the caption and she started it out with a mention just to be sure that Brielle would get a notification.
NeNe wrote, “@briellebiermann We don’t have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky pussy! Please know I will get You all the way together when you start f***ing wit me and mine! Go somewhere and let the air outta those fake lips, fake titties and fake ass because you will never be @kylejenner Yo trashy mama should have taught you better! My home is Brand New but you guys were so jealous of it, you couldn’t even give a compliment. You had to stoop so low and be so disgusting #racisttrash #jealous #KKK#thirsty you better run yo ass back to a child’s place #youwannaactgrown?”
Holy shit. I wish I had something more articulate to say in response, but that was my initial reaction. NeNe really went hard. She called out Brielle for the cosmetic procedures, racism, jealousy, trying to be Kylie, and she even accused her of bringing roaches into NeNe’s house just to record that video and make NeNe look bad.
Mama Kim wasn’t going to let that shit slide. She posted a conversation with a contact she has named as “housewife” with a yellow heart emoji about whether or not she should share the roach video. Not only that, but Kim paired that pic with a very lengthy caption: “First off that video is a combination of 2 videos! I COMBINED THEM! Brielle posted the first video on snap unaware of the large bug in front of her when she was kneeling down .. until her DM’s blew up! She removed the video immediately!! I was filming as an INVITED guest at @neneleakes for RHOA!! Brielle was invited as well! Brielle went to the bathroom and saw several bugs and had sent ME the video on snap and NO ONE ELSE!!! We ARE filming a show, remember that, (RHOA) and Nene released this video herself! No one has EVER seen this video but RHOA! Nobody would have ever seen this video! Nene has said and done some things that are absolutely disgusting, however I will take the high road as you will see it on the show soon enough, but you WILL NOT make it seem as though my daughter did ANYTHING wrong! She never posted this video nor would she! As you see here I myself was not willing to send the video just for ratings for RHOA. END OF STORY.” Nobody would have ever seen this video? Really, Kim? As if this wasn’t going to be a major story line no matter what.
The back and forth continued. NeNe posted two different screen shots accusing Kim of lies, racism, and glass breaking among other things. She also asserts that the rest of the cast can confirm her side of the story.
I’m still a little lost about the jump from bugs in the bathroom to racism, but I guess I’ll have to wait for Season 10 to return before I get all of my questions answered.
TELL US- BASED ON WHAT YOU’VE SEEN SO FAR, WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? ARE YOU HAPPY THAT KIM & NENE RETURNED TO THE SHOW?
