Sweetie Hughes claims, "NeNe's traumatizing my life."

Kim Zolciak and Sweetie Hughes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
The Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes continues to hit a sour note for Sweetie Hughes. "NeNe's traumatizing my life," Kim Zolciak's right hand girl tells Life & Style. "She's bringing hell to it."

Now, now. What's sparking these latest fiery comments? After NeNe continuously accused her former wine-loving buddy of treating Sweetie like a slave, Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley started the "Free Sweetie" campaign. "They're doing it for Black History Month, and it offends me," Sweetie tells the mag. "They have pastors calling into the radio station and praying for me. They've taken it too far."

For her part, Sweetie sees herself as just the innocent bystander in a friendship triangle gone wrong. "NeNe's jealous that she's not as close to Kim as I am," she says. "I've known Kim for 11 years, since I was a kid. Kim's a great friend to me."

Sweetie's also tweeting jabs back at those criticizing her relationship with her BFF boss. "@Kimzolciak are people serious. I don't say sh** half of the time because I don't know how to respond to ignorance. And life goes on!" she tweeted. "My name is in everybody mouth. How lovely. Keep it going a**holes:)"

NeNe is jealous of Kim because of Kroy and her Housewives show popularity and made her the hate target and you are part of it. But you need to stand up for yourself and get someone important in the black community to help you do that. NeNe has become one angry black women hating and criticizing everyone about something.  What NeNe don't get is it will come back to haunt her and she will ruin her own chance to success.

Oh come on now. Sweetie can leave anytime she wants. I think she likes the paychecks and being on TV. Nene did not need to play the race card saying Kim treats her as a slave. She treats her as an assistant.

Do not worry about what Nene or anyone thinks about you. When people are in your business it is because 1 (one) either you have something they don't have 2 (two) you are associated w/ someone or something that they want to be associated with again this goes without saying Jealousy is a big factor. You do not need to give any explanation to anyone you know who you are and only you know the truth and what's in your heart Worry about what God thinks of you just look at the source Nene thinks she is all that let her think what she wants to think just do not give her the satisfaction to torment you. What goes around comes around. Be true to your self and your family and friends after all that is all that matters. Instead of worrying about Nene or any haters why dont you focus yourself to God and ask God to help you get through this tough time.

NeNe is my gurl and as previously said " she says what everyone else is thinking"! Obviously Sweetie enjoys the way Kim speaks to her, so who cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's entertainment!!!

I love NeNe she speaks her mind she is who she is and she makes no apologies for it. Everybody is entitled their opinion and the only thing NeNe does is say what others are thinking and will not say..Kim deserves to get cursed out I belive she talks behind everyones back and doesn't think anyone should say anything..

Nene needs to zip it. She thinks just because she was on the Apprentice she's now a big movie star. She has a big mouth that's what she has and someone needs to shut it for her. She can't mind her own business and with all her problems she should be concentrating on her family, not Kim's assistant. The one thing I really despise about Nene is that she has to talk over everybody to get her point across.Doesn't she know that the less said the better. She's only making herself come across as a trouble making big mouth. Some things never change.

I have an issue with the way Kim speaks to Sweetie. Although it has been stated that they have know each other for years and they are best friends and all of the other foolishness that was stated to justify the madness. I have friends that I've know for years and they have enough sense to know better than to talk to me that way, not out of fear but out of respect that should exist between human beings.

Although I don't necessarily agree with Ne-Ne's delivery, I do agree with the fact that it is something that should have been addressed. No one should be spoken to in such a degrading manner. Maybe they do it different in ATL, you always speak to people with respect, no matter who or what they are, no one should have to be humiliated in order to get a paycheck we are all entitled to dignity.

Look Ne Ne said she treats her like a slave and from what I saw she was quite close. BTW not all slaves are/were black. N-E-Way NeNe is no more mdia hungry than I'm sleepin with a married man, a woman, and am pregnabt by a man I knew less than a year before I got pregnant by him. P.S. Sweetie and Kim make a grat pair. They're both ignorant cows.

nene is becoming a destruction to the show. She is JEALOUS of Kim because tardy for the party is a fun song. Good Kim. Nene, you lost ground by trying to attack Kim and use Sweety as a reason for your anger. The way Nene talked to Dovain was really abussive and crazy. Nene, you are loosing it.

I love NeNe, but who cares how Kim treats her own personal assisstant that she is paying out of her own money. I don't care.....as long as its not racist.

Sweetie, I love the fact that you are real & not going for the free ride, unlike NeNeot. You could have, but you thought more about your friendship with Kim & her children. Kim - I really hope you see that Sweetie is the true friend and never lose her. Give her a raise - she deserves it. Ignore all the people that are turning your life upside down & do not let them. As for NeNot - she looks ridiculous with all her rantings and a very unstable person who needs a lot of help. She is a very angry woman who is scorned & she needs to take care of her own life & keep her mouth shut. I can not stand to watch anything with her in it, anymore. Thank you for being a role model to all the young ladies & even us older women. You behave like a woman should with; class, dignity, honesty, loyalty, ethics & morals. You are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. Bravo - take NeNot out of show & put Sweetie in.

First of all I listen to Rickey Smiley morning show and its all fun and games. He is a comedian! The whole crew is hilarous! The so call "pastors" calling in are comedians. If she can't see the humor in all of this, just don't do the show anymore. When you are out in the public, expect this type of stuff. If you can listen to the show do it. Its hilarous! They mean no harm what-so-ever!

LEAVE SWEETIE ALONE, NENE JUST WANTS FREE PUBLICITY.

The whole "Free Sweetie" campaign is ridiculous. Sweetie is NOT being held against her will. If she had a problem with Kim or her duties as Kim's assistant, she could quit. Nene needs to focus on her own crumbling life and stay out of other peoples.

I really like Kim, and I think that NeNe is a bully. I like to speak my mind too, NeNe, but you don't have to scream and get up in to another person's face to get you point across.

Sweetie has been a friend to Kim for 11 years, and it goes both ways. She has given her a beautiful place to live, and pays her for her time. Sweetie has a great relationship with Kim's kids. They are all very attached to one another emotionally.

Kim and Sweetie: Don't listen to NeNe. She's nothing but a loudmouth bully. NeNe: Mind your own business, and get your own life in order!

NENE should have kept her big ugly mouth shut. She's getto with money. And looks like the money soon may end along with the marriage. She's rude, crude and totally classless. Money don't buy you class as the "Countess" would say. Keep your head held high, Sweetie. You're being paid as an employee by your best friend. You enjoy your job and that's all that matters. If anyone else has a problem with that, it's 'Their' problem. Good Luck to you and ignore the rest. They're just jealous of you that they can't have a job that they love.

An assistant should be spoken to with respect. A friend should be spoken to with respect. People should be spoken to with respect at all times. Kim and Sweetie need to learn that. Anyone can be a slave it is a state of mind.

I agree, I  thinks it hysterical.  Embarassment is what her friend & employer Kim does , everytime she opens her mouth !
