Nene Leakes 'Kinda Sad' About Kim Leaving

Wait, what? Yes, she really said that about her Atlanta archnemesis.

NeNe Leakes Talks Kim Exit

File this one under things that were actually said this weekend that we never thought we'd hear: NeNe Leakes is sad about Kim Zolciak leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yes, you read that correctly.

On the Watch What Happens Live after-show on Sunday night, NeNe fielded questions from viewers, and when one asked about how she felt now that Kim made her RHOA exit, if you expected fiesty NeNe to come out and start hurling some insults around, you might be a bit let down. Still, aside from one little zinger, it was nice to see NeNe show that she's a softie at heart.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

"The way Kim left the show is the way Kim chose to leave the show," NeNe said when asked. "She did that willingly. What I think about it is, 'Bye Kim!" she joked. But then, sentimental NeNe came out.

After Show: NeNe Says Goodbye to Kim

"I'm going to be very honest. The mood definitely changed once Kim left the show. I felt like the girls get along so much better now that she's gone. However, every girl that's left the show that I've began the show with, I've always felt some kind of way about it. A little part of me felt kinda sad about it, because we started this journey together. For us to not be together now, it's kind of sad. We began this journey together and for a reason, and now that I'm the only one standing, I have my own little pity party. You know, me and Kim didn't get along, but I think about how we all were at the beginning."

What else was discussed? Oh, not much aside from her wedding plans -- and Andy's hysterical spot in her bridal party. Watch to find out, and tell us in the comments if you like seeing Nene's soft side.
