Sometimes it's hard to draw the line between real life and reality TV when it comes to the ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
. Whether it's on or off-camera, there's always some kind of drama going on, making it hard for you to believe who's actually telling the truth.
Earlier this month, fiery words came out of co-stars Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes, who just recently patched things up on The Real Housewives of Atlanta
but are now ironically caught in yet another off-camera fight. It was all about an alleged physical altercation that happened during a heated confrontation in April, with Kim accusing NeNe of choking her out.
But shortly after telling the world about the choking incident, Kim decided to back down on assault charges. Evidently, Kim held off from having NeNe prosecuted because she had hoped her former best friend's apology. However, NeNe publicly denied to claims so Kim said she would take the matter to the court room.
"I don't have to press charges to prove a point to America," Kim told OK! Magazine
. "I hope NeNe in her heart she knows she made a mistake. She doesn't have to publicly apologize -- I'm sure it eats at her.
"She has her family, I have a family, we're on a successful show, and I'm going to try to be the better person," she added.
Though it's good to know that Kim will no longer press charges against her Real Housewives of Atlanta
co-star, I can't help but feel that there's something more to the story. Kim has been very confident about her case against NeNe, even backing her claim with a police report. She also doesn't seem the type who would easily back down. Perhaps it has something to do with Kim's recent admission that she "slapped NeNe's finger out of [her] face"? I guess they're even now.
