Looks like Kim Zolciak isn't the only cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta with an explosive stripper past. Nene Leakes has recently admitted that she once shed her clothes for cash and she's not ashamed about it.

"Yes, I was a stripper. Let the judgments ensue. I'm not ashamed. What difference does it make if I danced or not? Is the sun going to stop shining? Is my past taking food out of your mouth? My son was in private school, his father wasn't chipping in for pull-ups or food, I had no job and no money coming in, the rent was past due, and the super told me and my roommate that our condo owner was about to put us out. It was about survival," NeNe announced in her autobiography.

It's quite ironic that her tell-all book is entitled Never Make the Same Mistake Twice while NeNe doesn't think her most controversial job was a mistake at all. In fact, she admits that she enjoyed the power that came with being an exotic dancer, making "$500 off one guy just by turning him on."

Meanwhile, NeNe's past isn't nearly as controversial as her brawl with co-star Kim. With arguments turning nearly physical, their relationship seems irreparable at this point. And I'm pretty sure that calling Kim a "wack job" only makes things worse.

"I'm not sure if she's been clinically diagnosed," Nene said of her Atlanta frenemy. "But I'm convinced that if she were to lie down on a doctor's couch, a psychiatrist could surmise within minutes that Kim is a wack job. Without question [is] the most superficial person I have ever come across in my life. If Kim doesn't have labels and nice cars and an expensive home, she will literally die ... gag me with two spoons."
