NeNe Leakes on Kim Zolciak: ‘Friend is a Strong Word’
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway attended the 2013 Bravo Upfront presentation on Wednesday and caught up with all the Bravo celebrities, including “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes and “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party” star Kim Zolciak.
The two recently took to tweeting about how they have reconnected after being estranged BFFs. NeNe wrote, “Just had the best chat with @Kimzolciak!” Zolciak tweeted back, "My heart is at such peace @neneleakes best chat ever! See u soon! #onwardandupward."
Zolciak, who left “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in the middle of Season 5, told Calloway, “I do talk to NeNe, which I know is surprising to a lot of people, but we’ve had a long chat and we’re in a really good place. She matters more to me than anyone else because we were friends years before ‘Real Housewives.’ We have a lot of history together and my girls love her.”
Leakes, on the other hand, was not as positive about her relationship with Zolciak. “What Kim and I did was let the past be the past and agree to move forward. I just think the word ‘friend’ is a very strong word.”
