The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Nene Leakes says, she’s not friends with any of the other women on the show. Instead, she refers to Kim Zolciak, Sheree Whitfield, Lisa Wu Hartwell and Kandi Burruss as associates. “Some people don’t even get to be my associate, so they’re in a very good position,” she said in Los Angeles at a recent signing of her book, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Nene talks about her goal to have a talk show, her relationship with the ladies of Atlanta housewives and what she thinks about the song “Tardy for the Party.”

Below are excerpts from the interview-

What’s your relationship with Kim and Sheree like these days?
We’re just associates. I feel we have a business relationship. However, Sheree and I have known each other the longest and we’ve found a way to respect one another. And Kim and I just haven’t found that yet. And if Kim and I weren’t on the show together, we probably would never talk. But we’re on the show, so we have to talk and we have to be cordial, so we’re cordial. But I’m not friends with any of these girls. They’re my associates, and I don’t think that the word “associate” is a bad word. Some people don’t even get to be my associate, so they’re in a very good position.

So you’re not friends with anyone in the cast?
Down the road with some time, Lisa and I could possibly be friends. I don’t really know Kandi at all but I won’t close the door on that. I’m just saying I don’t know her because she’s new to the show. We didn’t get a chance to really get to know each other. She came into our relationship. I feel like I’m the HBIC [head b-- in charge] if you know what that is.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes recently published her new book, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice, which is already in stores. In an interview with WSBTV.com, NeNe talks about her unsteady relationship with fellow cast member Kim Zolciak, clears up rumors about her home being rented, and hints at the likelihood of leaving ATL.

Below are some of the excerpts from the interview-

Why is your relationship with Kim on the rocks?
We’re not real friends and we never have been. That’s what I think a lot of the viewers don’t know. We’re good associates and I don’t think associate is a bad word. Kim is in the associate category. My very good friends are not seen on the show.

Speaking of folks you’re not getting along with … let’s talk about the friction between you and Kandi, the newest cast member. What’s the beef between you two?
I’m not really sure. I didn’t know Kandi before the show.

Were you a fan of the group Xcape?
I don’t know the group Xscape. I think they may have done OK … some good music here and there.

They had some big hits
Really? Well, I hadn’t paid attention. It’s been a long time since they’ve been on the scene. We’re just two women who are like oil and water. We just don’t mix. I’m not going to lose sleep or weight over it.

Have you talked to fellow housewife Lisa Wu-Hartwell after losing her home?
I’ve spoken to Lisa … you know we talk all the time. It’s not a big deal. I’m outspoken, but I don’t ask people about their personal business. I know that Lisa’s doing just fine.

Are the rumors true that you rent your home?
What’s wrong with renting? Regardless of whether I rent or buy, I have to pay the bill. Nobody is giving me anything. In fact, this is a great time to rent.

So will you confirm whether you are renting?
I do not own the house that I currently live in. I’m doing a lease purchase.

Do you plan to stay in the house?
As a celebrity, I’m all over the place. I might end up leaving Atlanta.

What can we do to get you to stay?
You got to give me a check. I got to go where the checks are … I’m all over the place.

How do you respond to the stereotypes and criticism that you don’t represent housewives in Atlanta?
I’m not trying to represent any one other than NeNe Leakes.
