It's hard to determine who's telling the truth between NeNe and Kim. Both have convincing arguments though both are not exactly credible sources. And while NeNe has a never ending can of worms to use against Kim, Kim always has her equally crazy bag of retorts to throw back at NeNe. It's all very confusing to say the least and we get a "sort of" final glimpse to their never-ending drama in the second season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

On the other hand, knowing who's telling the truth or who started the feud between NeNe and Kim is useless at this point because neither one of them is willing to apologize. Instead, viewers are treated with some trash-talking fun at its finest.

NeNe's Side of the Story

NeNe claims that she was provoked when Kim dangled her finger on NeNe's face and then slapped her with her hand. She also acknowledges that she got physical but never admitted to "choking" Kim, who claims otherwise. The bottom line: NeNe thinks that "Kim has a personality disorder" and she'd rather "clip her toenails one by one than be friends with Kim."  

Kim's Side of the Story

Kim claims that she never touched NeNe and asserts that NeNe choked her. (Kim even filed a police report as reported previously but eventually dropped the charges.) Kim's parting words to NeNe: "Have a nice life!"
NeNe's Fight with Gregg

Kim isn't the only one having a feud with NeNe. Nene's husband Gregg also gets caught in an argument with NeNe when he disapproves meeting with her alleged biological father in last week's episode. Though Gregg is trying to protect NeNe from getting hurt, NeNe argues that he's not being supportive.

NeNe's Fight with Kandi

So what's NeNe's beef with Kandi? It really isn't clear but from the looks of it, NeNe wants Kandi to apologize for their latest argument, possibly regarding being cut-off from the song "Tardy for the Party." But Kandi, as we would have expected, doesn't have time for all that NeNe drama.

Sheree's Fashion Show

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is no stranger to fashion shows and parties so seeing Sheree launch her clothing line wasn't really as exciting as all the hype and preparations for this event from the previous episodes. There's also no drama since Kim avoided NeNe much of the time.  

Lisa and Ed

Lisa prepares for a new future without Ed's NFL paycheck but her idea of "downsizing' is moving to a nine-acre property. Ironically, Lisa says, "You don't want to live beyond your means. It's very selfish."

The Reconciliation

At least, The Real Housewives of Atlanta ends in high spirits as Kandi's mom, Joyce, reconciles with AJ on Mother's Day. Joyce acknowledges that AJ makes Kandi happy and that's all she really wants for her daughter. Kandi's very emotional about this major progress and is optimistic about her future with AJ. (Unfortunately, Kandi called off her engagement a few weeks after the finale wrapped up. And earlier this month, AJ died.)  

Next week, it's the highly anticipated reunion show so be sure to check back for updates!
