Kim Zolciak and her former Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star NeNe Leakes have long buried the hatchet and resumed their friendship, but the same cannot be said for Kimmie and her parents, whom she’s been feuding with for the past several years.

Though the exact cause of the fallout is still a bit fuzzy to us, from what we can understand Kim’s parents weren’t happy with how they were treated at their daughter’s 2011 wedding to football player Kroy Biermann. Apparently at the wedding, which was held at Kim and Kroy’s house, Kimmie wouldn’t let her mom use the bathroom inside, directing her instead to Port-a-Potties reserved for guests. This then started a war of words which culminated in Kim’s parents suing for visitation rights with their grandchildren and apparently selling reports about their famous daughter to various media outlets.  


When Kim made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last week she was asked about the current state of her relationship with her mom and dad, noting that she gets this question “everytime” she stops by the Bravo clubhouse.

“There’s not really a lawsuit,” Kim told the curious caller. “I have not spoken to my mom.” Later, Kim revealed that she hasn’t spoken to her dad, Joe, either.

We understand why Kim would want to distance herself from her parents if they were selling stories about her, but we hope they can patch things up soon. Since Kim last talked to her parents in 2011, she and Kroy have welcomed three more little ones — Kash, Kane, and Kaia — and we hope they’ll all get a chance to meet their maternal grandparents one day.

Luckily it looks like there may be some hope for this feuding family yet. When Andy tried to lighten the mood by asking Kim if she would give her mom an old wig if she needed one, the reality TV queen let out a big laugh.

And later, when discussing what she would do if daughter Brielle got pregnant, Kim remembered how her parents helped her when she gave birth to Brielle at just 19. It was “definitely life-changing,” Kim said of her parent’s help. “They were supportive so I’m grateful for that. And I would do the same. It’s a part of life, it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
