NeNe Leakes has made peace with her behavior on the tour bus spanning the last two episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, both apologizing for her poorly-handled response, and standing by her argument. She explained on the show this week that she just couldn't take another minute of Kim's disrespectful treatment of Sweetie, but, in a recent interview, NeNe admitts that it wasn't really a recent development. She remembers Kim and Big Poppa being much harsher with Sweetie back when they were still an item.

"[Kim] talked down to [Sweetie] a lot," NeNe dishes. "I've been in Kim's company before when she was with Big Poppa and Sweetie, and Kim talked really bad to Sweetie. And Big Poppa kept referring to her at a dinner, 'You black b*tch. Black b*tch get this. You black b*tch, do that.' And Kim was like, 'Get your *ss up and do this.' And it was just like, are you serious? She's saying 'get your *ss,' and he's saying 'get your black *ss,' and I just thought that's crazy!"

That sounds a little more serious than the plausibly good-natured "hey, b*tch" rapport we've witnessed between Kim and Sweetie this season. So, we can't really blame NeNe for being fed up.

But the real question is, how long ‘til Sweetie snaps?
