How Kim Zolciak-Biermann Reacted to NeNe Leakes' Roach-Themed Halloween Costume
NeNe Leakes made it clear on Sunday's Real Housewives of Atlanta season 10 finale that she isn't ready to exterminate her feud with Kim Zolciak-Biermann anytime soon
Tthe 50-year-old Housewife and her husband Gregg, 63, showed up to Kandi Burruss and Eva Marcille‘s Halloween Party dressed as an exterminator and cockroach, respectively.
“We’re here to get these roaches up out of here,” NeNe joked, pretending to spray poison as Gregg followed behind her as an oversized bug.
Their costume, of course, was in response to the fact that Kim had previously called their house a “roach nest” — even sending a video to the entire cast that her daughter Brielle Biermann had taken of black bugs crawling in NeNe’s bathroom as proof.
“NeNe is sick and disgusting,” Kim wrote in the lengthy text. “For someone who has two beautiful kids and an amazing husband, she should be worried about karma.”
That sprawled a slew of public back-and-forth insults that made headlines back in October, including NeNe’s insistence that Kim and Brielle were both “racists.”
“Kim & her daughter oops whole family are racists! What her daughter did at my home… was racist, learned behavior etc,” Leakes alleged in a comment on Instagram, adding, “Kim is a calculating bio polar racist with a horrible mouth, who uses black folks for her come up.”
“That word ‘roach’ just ain’t the word I needed to hear her saying,” NeNe said. “It sounds very racial when you are speaking to an African-American person and talk about roaches. Because people feel like you associated that with the ghetto or trash. Black people do not receive that very well.”
Though NeNe was angry about the roach comments then, she made sure Kim knew she was having the last laugh.
“Well I decided to be an exterminator because I just want Kim and her little silly ass dumb f—— family to know that we are laughing at your ass, bitch,” NeNe said. “Hehe, haha. Bitch, the joke is on you.”

“That’s hilarious, Burruss said, with Williams adding, “Y’all did that. Y’all are a petty mess! Petty goals. That is couple petty goals right there.”
Even Kim’s husband Kroy Biermann laughed. “That’s good,” he said. “That’s good humor.”
But Kim was not.
“I don’t even want to talk about this, bitch,” she said. “She’s trying to be funny, but it’s not funny.”
“What else can she be when she has bugs in her house?” Kim added.
Perhaps that’s because though Kim was the one to throw the “roach nest” insults, she was claiming she was the victim — telling Whitfield in an episode earlier this month that she received death threats after NeNe’s racist claims.
“We’ve had to hire security. I’ve had people come to the gate at my house,” she said.
“She wants to pull the race card. That’s the devil, bitch,” Kim continued. “She spent so many years trying to sabotage my name and I just let it roll. Now you’re f—— with my kids? ‘The whole family is racist, prejudice?’ My whole family? There’s not a racist bone in my body. Not me, my husband, or my children see color. Never have.”

Kim went on to explain that she sent Leakes a cease and desist, which she said cost her $20,000.
“I don’t take this lightly. It’s one thing like I said to kind of banter back and forth and have an opinion,” Kim told E!’s Daily Pop in October. “This is far beyond just having an opinion.”
NeNe’s response to receiving the cease and desist? “I burned it up with a lighter,” she said.
While the two avoided each other at the finale, they won’t be able to do that in the upcoming three-part reunion. “You are f—— trash,” NeNe screamed at Kim in the teaser for their face-off. “I don’t give a f— about you. Bye girl, get your ass out.”
“Jealousy’s a disease,” Kim said. “Get well, bitch.”
