The well documented love-hate relationship of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
stars NeNe Leakes
and Kim Zolciak
is in a state of bliss -- for now. But don't expect it to last.
"We're trying to be peaceful with each other," Leakes told PEOPLE Thursday at Tao Las Vegas. "Kim and I have an up-and-down relationship. Don’t be surprised if we have a falling out again. That’s just how we are."
Having just finished the second season of their show, the stars have fought over an alleged choking incident
, singing on Kim's song
and her engagement to Big Papa.
For now the two remain civil -- they even had dinner in Los Angeles recently -- though Leakes stopped short of complimenting Kim’s performance of “Tardy For The Party”
at the show's reunion.
"She was alright," Leakes said.
Despite their history of having fun together over a glass (or two) of wine, Leakes says being civil is about as much as anyone can expect. "We're not friends and we will probably never be friends,” Leakes said, “but we’re just trying to be respectful." --Mark Gray
