NeNe Leakes has apologized for her behavior on Sunday night's (February 17th) Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe showed up to Kenya's charity gala that was supposed to be in NeNe's honor. NeNe was upset that Kenya was throwing a gala in her honor, but didn't call her to invite her to it. Kenya claimed that she did send NeNe an evite , but NeNe never got it. In her Bravo TV blog, NeNe wrote, "I don't have a lot I want to say, but I'll start by saying I apologize for my behavior at the charity event. Here are the facts. I never received a call, a text, or an email from Kenya. What I did learn the night before the charity event is that Kenya had used a PR Firm to send e-vites to everyone, which is why I didn't see it. Fact! She wanted you to believe she sent me an email and she did not. FACT! If she really had pure, good intentions, she could have picked up the phone, called me, and said, 'Hey let's put our differences aside for a night of charity!'"

Kenya took to her Bravo Blog with her side of the story, saying that she only wanted to do something kind for NeNe and for charity as an olive branch. Kenya say that her team did send out the invites, and her team tracked the invites and saw that NeNe did receive it and read it, but she chose not to respond. Kenya said that instead of calling Kenya with questions, she called the charity to confirm their support. She then wrote, "Initially, I wanted to surprise her with my decision to make her the guest of honor, which is why I didn’t personally call her. However, as rumblings went on about her not getting a call from me, I immediately called her and received no response resulting in me texting her. To my dismay, she furiously responded in a nasty, disrespectful manner. Again, all knowledge of the event took place prior to the event. Once NeNe did learn, she made her own choice how to conduct herself."
