The ATL Housewife apologizes... but not to Kim.

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak of the Real Housewives of Atlanta
In the wake of her road rage with Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kim Zolciak, someone has been calling NeNe Leakes "embarrassing" and "trashy"... and it's NeNe herself!

"It's an embarrassing thing to see as a mother and as an adult," Leakes admits to TVGuide.com. "I apologize to my viewers and fans, and to my children and family and friends who love and care about me. ... I apologize to them for them having to see me stoop to such a trashy level. When you fool with trash, it can get all over you."

Snap! There's nothing like an apology that's really a backhanded insult. Kim recently Tweeted that NeNe is always trying to "put her hands on people," but NeNe says that wasn't her intention when she got in Kim's face.

"I got up out of my seat because I feel like Kim is a child," she explains. "I feel like you need to get up, like you would do for your child, get down to their level, look them dead in the eye, and say, 'I'm not playing with you. I am dead serious. You need to shut your mouth now.' That's what I feel she needs. It's almost like you need to wake that b---- up. My intentions were to get in her face and let her know, 'Listen, don't play with me. I've had it.'"

Yeah, that'd get our attention. Do you think she overreacted? Or did Kim deserve a little attitude adjustment? Start a Tweet Battle and hammer it out with your friends.
