The animosity between the feuding cast members of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” intensifies as Kim Zolciak-Biermann took a legal step against NeNe Leakes.
In an interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, Zolciak-Biermann revealed that she already hired a legal counsel to prove that she is not taking Leakes’ accusations against her and her daughter Brielle lightly.
“It’s one thing like I said to kind of banter back and forth and have an opinion. This is far beyond just having an opinion,” the 39-year-old TV personality stated.
She also told Larry King in an interview with “Larry King Now” that Leakes went out of hand when she put the #KKK label on her Instagram post when she was attacking her and her daughter. According to the mother of six, the remark is very inappropriate at this point in time.
“I’m on a show with all African-American women and I’m the only one that’s ever been on the show that’s Caucasian, so it’s the card that sometimes they play and it’s gross. And I won’t allow it,” Zolciak-Biermann also said.
The feud between co-stars started when Leakes cried foul after Zolciak-Biermann and her 20-year-old daughter claimed that they saw several cockroaches lying around Leakes’ bathroom when they dropped by to visit her home and shared the video of the bugs on Snapchat.
Leakes reacted on the comment section and claimed that her house was bug-free and the ones that the eldest Biermann daughter saw were brought by the mother-daughter duo to make her look bad. She also called Brielle a racist because of the “black roach” description that she included in her post.
But Brielle defended herself by saying that she never called Black people as “roaches,” since she used that reference to the bugs that she found on Leakes’ home. Her mother, on the other hand, shared a lengthy post on Instagram to say that there is no truth to any of her co-star’s accusations.
