When it comes to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes definitely take the title of the ultimate frenemies. When they're good, they're hooting and guzzlin' tankards of wine, but when they're not good, they're strangling each other... and guzzlin' tankards of wine. Recently, however, NeNe has claimed that she is totally "over" Kim, taking their frenemies status to just plain enemies. We still don't know what the final straw was to break this crazy camel's back, but we're bound to find out very soon. In fact, Kim teased us that the final three episodes will be nothing short of life-changing. Here, we take a look back at the roller-coaster events that led us to this final outcome.
Season 1, Episode 4: Kim and NeNe's then-enemy Shereé enjoy a family day together, lighting the match for Kim and NeNe's eventual fireworks.
Season 1, Episode 5: After finding out that NeNe was gossiping about them and mocking Kim's country-music "career," Shereé and Kim continue to bond in their anti-NeNe campaign during a Botox date. Later during another of those big-hats events, NeNe and Kim refuse to talk to each other. Dun, dun, duhhnn.
Season 1, Reunion: Lisa Wu Hartwell has to sit on NeNe's lap to prevent her from diving across the couch to attack Kim.
Season 2, Episode 2: NeNe and Kim get together to drink more wine and attempt to make amends, ending the evening with a pinky swear to keep things on the up and up during their upcoming dinner with Shereé. At said dinner, Kim ends up storming out after Shereé calls her trailer trash...
Season 2, Episode 3: ...Shereé follows Kim out of the restaurant to "kick her ass" (read = tug on her hair), while NeNe hobbles around in her heels and fails to defend Kim. Later, NeNe and Kim pseudo make up.
Season 2, Episode 8: Kim pushes NeNe out of "Tardy for the Party."
Season 2, Episode 9: NeNe is way pissed she doesn't get to sing "Whoa, whoa" during "Tardy for the Party," so she gets all up in Kim's face and calls her a dirty liar.
Season 2, Episode 10: NeNe's fury climbs, as she calls Kim a "dirty low-down monkey with a wig.”
Season 2, Episode 13: Kim and NeNe have a heated scuffle, which includes some off-camera choking, as well as some on-camera screeching.
Season 3, Episode 1: NeNe puts on an Oscars-worthy gown and invites Kim over to her house for trophy-cup-sized glasses of vino after some much-needed months of distance.
Season 3, Episode 4: After getting her ta-tas, tummy, and nose done, NeNe calls Kim in a drowsy stupor to tell her she loves her.
Season 3, Episode 9: Kim's daughter, Brielle, gets herself some bling via a purity ring, but NeNe jokes that the jury's still out on how Kim's offspring will turn out. The next day IRL, Kim fires back in her blog that the jury is out on NeNe's son (cause that fool got arrested for visiting his friend in jail with a pocketful of weed).
Season 3, Episode 11: Cynthia presents NeNe with a somewhat alarming friendship contract, urging Kim to get all sorts of protective of "her girl, NeNe."
December 7, 2010: In an ironic twist, NeNe tells Access Hollyowod that her and Kim are done forever and names Cynthia as her only true friend on the show.
And there you have it, folks. We'll have to wait just a little bit longer to find out how the frenemies went from happy moments of Phaedra-bashing and margaritas to the closing chapter on their relationship.
