NeNe Leakes unfollowed most of her Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates on social media after filming the season 11 reunion — and from the looks of the trailer for the three-part event, it’s clear why.

The O.G. Atlanta Housewife appears to be in the hot seat throughout the sit down, battling costars Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Eva Marcille, Kandi Burruss and Tanya Sam in the trailer, which dropped Thursday.

“Y’all want to fire on me at this corner, I know I’m the one,” Leakes, 51, quips.

Even host Andy Cohen isn’t immune to Leakes’ clap backs. As he grills her about one topic, she quickly tells him, “Do not keep pushing me over it, okay?”

It’s been a tough season for Leakes on RHOA. She’s been open about the struggles she’s been experiencing in her marriage to husband Gregg as he undergoes stage 3 colon cancer treatment, lamenting about her inability to care for him and calling him “mean” and “grouchy” during recovery.

On an episode earlier this month, she broke down in tears over the pressures she was feeling. Hours later, she exploded on Burruss, 42, and Williams, 37, for attempting to peek into her bedroom closet during filming, despite her repeated requests that they stay out. The scene got so out of control that Leakes ended up grabbing a cameraman who was following them, ripping his shirt in the process.

If that weren’t enough, this Sunday’s finale will see Leakes exploding on Bailey, 52, after the model brought Leakes’ rival (and former Housewife) Kenya Moore to a filmed event. The two are no longer friends, with Leakes saying recently that Bailey was “sneaky” and “underhanded.”

Sources previously confirmed to PEOPLE the reunion wasn’t easy for Leakes.

“It was an intense day of filming,” one source on the scene said, explaining that the topic of Gregg seemed to cause the most divide. “Andy asked a lot of fair questions, really grilling NeNe about the way she’s been treating Gregg recently, and the women universally seemed to stand up for Gregg. You could tell she was angry about that. It felt like a betrayal to her.”

“She’s used to being totally in charge and she feels untouchable,” another insider added, pointing to her closet freakout. “The women don’t normally come after her this hard but in this case, they really felt she was in the wrong. And once NeNe gets mad, she holds a grudge.”

According to the reunion trailer, there also seemed to be claims that Leakes put her hands on Williams, who was pregnant at the time.

“Me and Marlo jumped up saying, ‘Get off her,’ ” Sam said.

Leakes called the claim a “f—ing lie,” but Williams appeared to insist the situation was scary.

“If somebody tells you they were not terrified, they are f—ing lying,” she said in the clip.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo. The reunion begins airing April 7.

Following the final episode of the three-part reunion on April 21, Bravo will run a three-part special series beginning April 28 — The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha’s Having a Baby — documenting the final weeks of Williams’ pregnancy and leading up to the birth of her daughter earlier this month.
