Kim and NeNe fight about off-camera fight

Lest they be overshadowed by The Real Housewives of New Jersey or the New York women before them, The Real Housewives of Atlanta are stepping up their off-camera game to complement their on-camera insanity.

Kim Zolciak has accused NeNe Leakes of “choking her out,” which NeNe denies. “If I was her, I would take a warrant out on me. That’s what I would do,” NeNe told OK! magazine. While I’m not exactly sure you can take a warrant out on someone, Kim said she will do that. “That she’s saying all these things has made me pretty upset and made me realize that I made a very poor decision to not press charges,” she told the magazine.

This conflict erupted during the final 20 seconds of Andy Cohen’s sweaty and live chat show early Friday morning, when NeNe was a guest and was talking about her conflict with Kim–and Kim called in from the Bahamas with just a few seconds to go. Andy ended the show anyway, but the cameras kept rolling for an online video. “Close your legs to married men, trashbox,” NeNe said, while Kim said, “My cars weren’t repoed in a Home Depot parking lot” and “We’ll see who lies when you’re in jail.” Thus began the arguing that Bravo has provided for our entertainment:
