Brielle Biermann, NeNe Leakes & Kim Zolciak Beef Over Racism And A Carpenter Ant

October 6, 2017  |  


NeNe Leakes knows how to capture some attention, boy. And with the 10th season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” quickly approaching, she’s doing just that by reigniting a longstanding tension between herself and costar Kim Zolciak.

It all began when a fan, @toyatati, called NeNe out for being fickle when it comes to Kim.

“NeNe always picking and choosing when she wants Kim to be her Bestie and when she wants her to be Racist/Prejudice. If she’s all that then why do you keep making up with and becoming friends with her. Just take it back to the Target Parking Lot and be DONE with it. 911 Style!”

NeNe responded, correcting the fan on her assumption, doubling down on claims of racism.

So, as you might imagine, people were wondering what the hell happened. Well, it all came to light.

NeNe released this Snapchat video Brielle recorded of herself in NeNe’s new home. In the video Biermann makes fun of the fact that there are no mirrors above the sink and then zooms in on an ant crawling across the floor. But instead, she called it a roach.

And that’s when NeNe went off.

Whew, Jesus.

Kim responded, explaining Brielle never released the video.

First off that video is a combination of 2 videos! I COMBINED THEM! Brielle posted the first video on snap unaware of the large bug in front of her when she was kneeling down .. until her DM's blew up! She removed the video immediately!! I was filming as an INVITED guest at @neneleakes for RHOA!! Brielle was invited as well! Brielle went to the bathroom and saw several bugs and had sent ME the video on snap and NO ONE ELSE!!! We ARE filming a show, remember that, (RHOA) and Nene released this video herself! No one has EVER seen this video but RHOA! Nobody would have ever seen this video! Nene has said and done some things that are absolutely disgusting, however I will take the high road as you will see it on the show soon enough, but you WILL NOT make it seem as though my daughter did ANYTHING wrong! She never posted this video nor would she! As you see here I myself was not willing to send the video just for ratings for RHOA. END OF STORY

Then NeNe fired back.

Kim responded, specificially to the accusations of racism.

And NeNe, with the last word.

I’m sure they’ll be talking about this for a while so we’ll be sure to update you. But in the meantime, what do you make of all of this? Are Brielle and Kim racist? Did NeNe do too much in her initial response to Brielle? Are you surprised they’re going back and forth over an ant? LOLL
