NeNe Chokes Kim, Pardons Wig
After a successful premiere last Thursday night, reports are surfacing that the Atlanta housewives are still taking shots at each other. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” premiered to 2.7 million viewers and its rerun later that night attracted 4 million, easily making it the most watched show in the Bravo franchise. It seems that the reason these housewives are ratings gold is the real drama that keeps escalating to new levels.
Real Housewives of Atlanta" castmember Kim Zolciak spoke out to Entertainment Tonight about filing a police report against NeNe Leakes, who allegedly strangled Kim during a heated exchange (IN APRIL)-see police report here.
Kim's publicist tells ET: "The police report that has went public pertaining to my client Kim Zolciak and a serious physical altercation that was started by fellow housewife NeNe Leakes is a very serious matter that is still under investigation.
"Mrs. Leakes has now proven to the world that she is not the woman she claims. She has spoken publicly of being a former victim of domestic violence and her charity work to help others that have suffered the same. And then she would have such anger to choke my client instead of acting like a REAL woman and talking their personal conflicts out or simply walking away. Violence is a very serious issue and we are not going to be taking this incident lightly."
"Mrs. Leakes needs obvious therapy for her apparent anger management issues."
