Contracts are made to be broken, but Cynthia Bailey took it one step further on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta when she burned the friendship contract between her and former BFF NeNe Leakes.
"Burn, baby, burn," Bailey cheered, clapping. "It's over."
Bailey burned it after her friendship with Leakes went up in flames over the past season and imploded following the wives' shady trip to sunny Puerto Rico.
"NeNe made it crystal clear she didn't want to be friends," Bailey said, prompting her sister, Malorie, to find the contract, which had been signed and filed away.

While the stars were celebrating the Golden Globes in Los Angeles on Sunday, the The Real Housewives of Atlanta were in Puerto Rico throwing more shade than the palm trees.
"Is that shade, Phaedra?" asked Demetria McKinney, who invited all the women to Puerto Rico to watch her perform. "There have been a couple of moments I have felt … I want to make sure that if it is shade, I address it."
McKinney was addressing Parks's constant disses about her age to become a pop star, her relationship, her fashion sense and even if she had done crack.

If three's company, then four was a (very sketchy) crowd on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
"I'm optimistic," said Cynthia Bailey after former BFF NeNe Leakes asked her to drinks with Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams – without mentioning the others would be there – so each pair could sort out their issues.
Bailey didn't have reason to be sunny about the meeting following their recent disastrous attempt at a truce.

Two penguins couldn't have shared an icier hug than the one that Phaedra Parks and husband Apollo Nida shared on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
"Phaedra looks like she's seen a ghost," Cynthia Bailey said upon the unexpected arrival of Nida at a music video release party for new housewife Demetria McKinney. "Aren't you happy to see your husband, Miss Southern Belle?"

"I tried to get over it, but I feel like there are certain lines that must not be crossed," Bailey told Leakes referring to last season when Leakes called Bailey's husband Peter Thomas a bitch.
"If you are a real friend, like you claim to be, you'd call up your real friend," Leakes told Bailey after the other wives had departed dinner to give the former BFFs some alone time. "But you chose to do it in front of everybody else."

Kandi Burruss organized a "peaceful" dinner party so The Real Housewives of Atlanta" could mend fences and move forward – but the knives were out instead.
"We might need a word of prayer before these heifers get here," said Phaedra Parks, offering up a mock prayer with Burruss at the restaurant. "We come against whores … and liars. I want God to be in the midst, because I know this could turn out horribly wrong."
And it did.

NeNe Leakes tossed enough shade on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta to chill the state of Georgia.
At a spa day with Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams, Leakes opted to massage her vocal muscles, first taking on former BFF Cynthia Bailey.
"When we stopped talking, I missed her friendship," Leakes said of Bailey, recalling their feud on last season's reunion. "Now I'm over it. Cynthia is trying to make her mark. It really doesn't look cute on her. I'm never gonna be friends with her again. Ever!"

"I apologize to you. It was a lie," Nida said of the allegation that infuriated his wife, Phaedra Parks, last year and made her and many of the wives turn their backs on Moore.
"You don't get what I've been through because of the things you said to your wife," said Moore. "She [said] I did these things, and they believed it. I've never been anyone's whore."

Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta started where The Real Housewives of New Jersey ended – with some of its cast in legal trouble.
On its premiere Sunday night, viewers were able to peek behind the scenes at Phaedra Parks's husband Apollo Nida's sentencing day, just as they were for Joe and Teresa Giudice's fraud indictments.
"Life is extremely difficult right now," said Parks, who took her two sons, Ayden and Dylan, leaving her husband alone on his day in court. "Apollo's actions are the ultimate betrayal … I thought he was a changed man."
