NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey have been super tight so far this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but the December 4 episode exposed some major cracks in their friendship.

Cynthia's husband, Peter Thomas, opened his new restaurant, Bar One, and asked NeNe to co-host the launch party. But when the big night came, NeNe was late because of a "wardrobe malfunction." She even missed Peter's big surprise: a huge portrait of Cynthia sporting a huge afro.

When NeNe finally breezed in, she acted like it was no big deal. But the other housewives speculated that she was trying to avoid rumored fling Charles Grant and his honey Marlo Hampton.

And though Cynthia played it off as reasonable and OK, we gotta say it wasn't NeNe's shining moment as a friend. Perhaps Kim Zolciak was right that their friendship wouldn't last when she blogged, "Cynthia barely knows NeNe! Cynthia hasn't seen her true colors."

What do you think: Was NeNe being so late a big friendship fail?
