We may have to wait until the next episode to watch NeNe Leakes spit on Kenya Moore, but the latest episode saw the beginning of the epic fight between these two housewives.

Kenya and NeNe's rivalry and hatred for each other has been a plotline for several seasons and them breaking into random shouting matches is nothing new. However, after watching the recent episode, fans think that NeNe might be going after Kenya because she is jealous of Kenya and Cynthia Bailey's friendship.

Cynthia and NeNe used to best friends, but their friendship came to a screeching halt after NeNe called Cynthia's man a "punk". After their fallout, Cynthia got very close to Kenya, and they both became best friends of sorts.

Although Cynthia and NeNe have made up in an earlier episode, it looks like the OG housewife is still not totally secure and assured about their renewed friendship.

When NeNe sees Cynthia giving Kenya a pass after Kenya apologizes to Cynthia for the shade about wine knowledge, NeNe butts in pointing out how Kenya always gets a pass and she is held to a different standard.

In less than a minute, the two housewives are at each other's throats calling each other bipolar. NeNe goes for the kill when she yells at Kenya saying that her husband Marc left her because she is bipolar.


Fans were surprised to see NeNe fight with Kenya over Cynthia. A fan tweeted, "Nene hating on Kenya and Cynthia relationship.. so she decided to pick a fight with Kenya as she got jealous #RHOA."

Another fan wrote, "People said @KenyaMoore started this fight before watching it, now after watching it, I wonder what y'all think. Nene is jealous of @CynthiaBailey10 and Kenya's friendship and that's part of the reason why she mad at Kenya for the past two seasons #RHOA."

"Kenya and nene really fight over Cynthia .....it's strange  #RHOA," observed a fan.

Another fan expressed, "Nene is extremely jealous of Kenya and Cynthia's friendship. And why was she saying Kenya isn't going to bully her when Nene was the one starting bully calling her a b***h and that she would lose to her fight? Nene supplies good content but her ego makes me dislike her #RHOA."
'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 12 airs every Sunday at 8 pm ET/PT on Bravo.
