There's never a dull moment when it comes to The Real Housewives of Atlanta and this week, it's all about cast member Kim Zolciak and her alleged brawl with co-star NeNe Leakes. Since the beginning of this franchise, backstabbing, tongue-lashing catfights have become sort of ordinary for viewers. It has even come to a point where we now expect these things from these ladies and that no episode would be complete without the scuffles. After all, these are just fiery words and nothing physical, right?

Well not according to Zolciak, who claims that Leakes tried to "choke her out" during a heated confrontation in April.

"Well I have a police report and two nice try," Zolciak told "She definitely crossed the line. It's one thing to call me names, but it's another to put your hands on me. It was incredibly traumatic and I didn't sleep for three days afterwards."

Leakes, on the other hand, has acknowledged that there was an altercation but denies that she choked her co-star. As an advocate against domestic violence and a victim of domestic abuse, Leakes asserts that she wouldn't resort to physical violence.  

"What I have to say about Kim filing the report saying that I choked her out: Why am I not in jail? Why haven't they come and get me, honey? Come and get me, darling," Leakes said.

On the other hand, Zolciak is quick to refute Leakes by asserting that she has evidence to back up her claim.

"NeNe's a liar, and I have a police report to prove it," Zolciak said. "Violence is not something I support or agree with. And she says she's an advocate against domestic violence...what, is it a how to?"

To catch Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes in action, watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta, airing every Thursday at 10pm on Bravo.
