Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes sent out a cryptic tweet earlier this week, asking fans if they ever had a “close friend that was setting you up for the kill.” And, even though Leakes didn’t name names, it has now been revealed that the target of the message was her co-star, Cynthia Bailey.
According to the tabloid, when Leakes found out that Bailey went to Bravo executives and campaigned to get Kenya Moore back on RHOA, she was shocked and felt “totally betrayed.”
Bravo fired Moore this past summer when she refused to film with her husband, Marc Daly, after they secretly got married.
“Cynthia pitched Kenya coming back as ‘Kenya Vs. Nene.’ When NeNe found out she went ballistic,” an insider revealed.

The source added that Leakes wrote her cryptic tweet as soon as she found out about Bailey’s betrayal.
“Have u ever had a close friend that was setting you up for the kill? The gag is, you know it tho! They, however, want EVERYBODY to think they are nice, pretty and supportive! But really they r insecure, not that pretty, not talented and certainly not nice! Their day is coming,” Leakes tweeted on December 18.
The Bravo insider also revealed that Leakes plans to confront Bailey on camera when they film the Season 11 reunion because the RHOA OG is “ready for the fight.”
Moore has been desperate to return to the show ever since Bravo fired her, and Bailey invited the former beauty queen to her party where cameras were rolling. This surprised both the network and Leakes, who avoided Moore the entire night.
The source says that Leakes knew exactly what Bailey was trying to do, and she isn’t going to let her get away with it.
As for Leakes’ relationships with the other women in Atlanta, she is reportedly “making amends” with former RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks, but giving the cold shoulder to Porsha Williams.

The tension between Leakes and Williams – who is expecting her first baby with fiance Dennis McKinley – apparently started when Williams revealed that NeNe Leakes told her what Kandi Burruss said about McKinley during the RHOA episode that aired on December 2nd.
After that, the women started slamming each other on social media, but Williams says that she never confessed who told her, and it just looked that way because of editing.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta air Sunday nights on Bravo.
