Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey made headlines this week for announcing an end to their friendship drama. Fans of the two Atlanta glamazons have been buzzing ever since.

After running into each other at an Atlanta socialite event on October 17, the two former Bravo Peaches took to Instagram, cross-posting pictures and captions showing mutual love. The “two talls” were arm in arm and all smiles in event snaps. NeNe donned an Alexander McQueen pink two-piece skirt set, while Cynthia opted for an all-black professional look for the event.

NeNe wrote about bumping into her former castmate on Instagram. She partly captioned the photo, “Yall know I can’t hold a grudge for too long! We literally laughed our a*** off! I am talking burst out loud ghetto laughter hunni 🤣🤣.”

Cynthia responded with a similar tone. “Always nothing but love & laughter when I see “THE ONE” @neneleakes!” Cynthia posted, “Yes, we have been through our ups and downs, but the love was always real. Life is precious and way too short.”

Why did Cynthia and NeNe end their friendship contract?

Fans have been talking about their Real Housewives of Atlanta friendship split since the two were previously on the show. NeNe also discussed her feelings toward Cynthia during an August interview with Carlos King. The 55-year-old accused her supermodel friend of helping to get her fired from the franchise. Further, Nene claimed that one of the only reasons Bravo gave Cynthia a peach was because of her former husband, Peter.

Nene shared, “I loved Cynthia like she was my sister; we had a great friendship. I miss the friendship that we have. I just know some of the things that she has done behind the scenes. As much as she was on camera saying I was trying to stop hers [bag], she was definitely trying to stop mine. She was in an alliance with housewives and behind the scenes with producers and network.”

Despite NeNe’s sentiments in this recent summer interview, it seems like the two ladies have made up. And, we are here for it!
