The Atlanta catfight has just evolved to an entirely new level of drama. It doesn't seem as terrible when you see what's going on while the camera is rolling on The Real Housewives of Atlanta
. However, the backstage backstabbing seems to have gone too far. The conflict between Lisa Wu Hartwell
and Kim Zociak
just keeps getting worse, especially when threats are being sent through voicemail.
TMZ has released this video interview with The Real Housewives of Atlanta
star, Kim, revealing a voicemail she received from her co-star, Lisa. This is surely a surprise to many, as Lisa has been viewed as one who could handle her emotional outbursts on the show. Most people would expect either Sheree or NeNe for this kind of thing, but apparently Lisa found that things were getting out of hand. She needed to take control of matters, and realized that the best way was to confront Kim.
On the video, Kim admits that she and Sheree were “discussing what was going on in the blogs” while on set of a movie, when the intimidating messages came through. She plays one of them for TMZ, revealing a stern voice identified as Lisa's. The message goes on to say “You really don't know who I am” and continues with how she needs to talk to Kim. If Kim doesn't face her, Lisa says, she'll be getting a visit from the caller soon.
With the appearance of Kim's lawyer on the video, it appears as though she's taking it seriously. She seems to be frightened enough to file a restraining order against her co-star. She's also highly worried about her children, who she claims could be affected by the traumatizing event.
It's also possible that she's overreacting to the situation, which is actually more expected from a star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
. Lisa already admitted – calmly even – that she lost her temper, making it seem as though Kim is blowing things out of proportion on this one. If seeking legal action on a voicemail which invites a person for a heart-to-heart conversation is normal, then Kim's judgment is safe from criticism. However, it's already reminiscent of a publicity stunt that will die down quickly, unless Bravo hauls it to season 2 of the series.
