The fallout from #RoachGate consumed Sunday’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlantaas NeNe Leakes called Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her daughter Brielle Biermann “racist” after they claimed she lived in a “roach nest.”

Leakes’ comments made headlines back in October when she posted them publicly, along with a video Brielle had taken months earlier of black bugs crawling in a bathroom at Leakes’ house.

As fans saw in a February episode of RHOA, Kim, 39, had sent the video to the entire cast while they were in Barcelona as retaliation for Leakes’ claims that she lied about her health issues — saying Leakes was “sick” and “should be worried about karma.”

“Kim & her daughter oops whole family are racists! What her daughter did at my home… was racist, learned behavior etc,” Leakes, 50, alleged in a comment on Instagram, adding, “Kim is a calculating bio polar racist with a horrible mouth, who uses black folks for her come up.”

Looking back on Sunday at what happened, Leakes said that she called Kim and Brielle “racists” because of their use of the term “roaches.”

“That word ‘roach’ just ain’t the word I needed to hear her saying,” Leakes said. “It sounds very racial when you are speaking to an African-American person and talk about roaches. Because people feel like you associated that with the ghetto or trash. Black people do not receive that very well.”

While Leakes admitted the comments she made online “were purely out of anger,” she said she felt justified by statements Kim had previously made.

“Do I believe Kim is a racist? Some of the things she has said would definitely make you go, ‘Hmmm,’ ” Leakes said, as a montage of questionable moments of Kim’s past time on the show played.

She also stood by her attack of Brielle, 21 — who allegedly texted Leakes’ son Brentt, 18, and invited herself over for the party, claiming she was in the neighborhood looking at her old house.

“I think Brielle is a beautiful girl. I’ve known this girl from growing up. Your kid cannot talk to an adult using fowl language and expect me to say nothing back,” Leakes said.

“They really tried to do something to hurt me or discredit my home or how beautiful my home is. They wanted to discredit that,” Leakes added. “What she did was to mean and to be vicious and to be hateful. … It’s heartbreaking. Why couldn’t just come in here and say she’s happy for me? Why she couldn’t just saying, ‘I’m happy for you girl. I’m glad that you even accomplished a goal.’ ”

But while Leakes said she felt attacked, Kim claimed she was the victim.

The mother of six claimed that after Leakes posted the video, she received death threats.

“We’ve had to hire security. I’ve had people come to the gate at my house,” she told pal Shereé Whitfield.

“She wants to pull the race card. That’s the devil, bitch,” Kim said. “She spent so many years trying to sabotage my name and I just let it roll. Now you’re f—— with my kids? ‘The whole family is racist, prejudice?’ My whole family? There’s not a racist bone in my body. Not me, my husband, or my children see color. Never have.”

Kim went on to explain that she sent Leakes a cease and desist, which she said cost her $20,000.

“I don’t take this lightly. It’s one thing like I said to kind of banter back and forth and have an opinion,” Zolciak-Biermann told E!’s Daily Pop in October. “This is far beyond just having an opinion.”

“It’s inappropriate. In this day and age, people are dying over racism,” said that same month on Larry King Now. “I’m on a show with all African-American women and I’m the only one that’s ever been on the show that’s Caucasian, so it’s the card that sometimes they play and it’s gross. And I won’t allow it.”

Leakes’ response to receiving the cease and desist? “I burned it up with a lighter,” she said Sunday.

While it Kim was upset, she made it clear that she didn’t regret sending the video in the first place.

“It was a funny joke between Brielle and I. I’m her mom. She can send me whatever the f— she wants,” Kim told Kandi Burruss, saying once again that she wasn’t racist. “I don’t have this kind of drama. NeNe has portrayed me saying dumb s—. It’s nasty. I just am who I am.”

In the end, the whole cast seemed torn over who was right and who was wrong. But one thing was clear: it was going to take a lot to get these women back to the friendship they once had.

Although Jack Antonoff, 33, has previously dismissed rumors that he’s moved on since his “amicable” breakup with girlfriend of five years Lena Dunham, the Bleachers frontman was spotted on Saturday night at a basketball game in New York City with model Carlotta Kohl, who is also a painter, sculptor and photographer.

As the pair watched the game at Madison Square Garden, Kohl was photographed leaning on Antonoff. She also added video of her courtside view to her Instagram story.

Much like Antonoff’s former girlfriend, Kohl also comes from an artistic family. According to Paper magazine, she is the daughter of a model and a photographer. Dunham is the daughter of painter Carroll Dunham and photographer and filmmaker Laurie Simmons.

After news of Antonoff and Dunham’s split broke in January, the 33-year-old quickly shut down rumors that he had already started dating again.

“Normally i would never address rumors but i resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip,” he wrote. “those relationships are deeply important and sacred.”

The musician clarified, “with that said, i’m not seeing anyone. Lol.”

Anotonoff was previously rumored to be dating his friend — and fellow musician — Lorde, although a source told PEOPLE that there was “nothing going on” between the pair.

“There’s not any type of romantic situation. They’re just friends — they really are just friends,” the source told PEOPLE.

Antonoff still appears to be on friendly terms with Dunham.

Earlier this month, the cordial exes exchanged tweets about how excited Antonoff had been to lock eyes with actress Molly Ringwald at a film screening.

“Made eye contact with Molly Ringwald at a Love Simon screening!” he wrote on social media.

“You’re aware she and my mom are best friends, right?” Dunham, 31, replied. “It’s stunning.”

“I was gonna bring it up! i didn’t!” he tweeted in response.

Dunham previously revealed she planned to hold onto a memento of the romance. During an Instagram livestream in early January, Dunham said she’d keep a ring Antonoff gave her.

“I’m wearing this ring that Jack gave me, and I’ll always wear it because love is a really cool, powerful, eternal thing,” Dunham explained at the time. “It doesn’t have to be defined the way that we, in Western culture, define it as beginnings and ends.”

Tori Spelling celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a little help from her family!

On Sunday, the 44-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 alum posted a series of photos on social media documenting the festive day, which she enjoyed alongside husband Dean McDermott and their five children: daughters Stella, 9, and Hattie, 6, and sons Liam, 10, Finn, 5, and baby Beau, who turned 1 earlier this month.

Alongside a picture of the family’s green outfits — and Spelling’s bright green lipstick — the actress shared how happy she was that we were able to spend the holiday together.

“Yesterday we had the #luckoftheirish🍀 We celebrated #stpatricksday as a family!” she wrote, adding that both she and her 9-year-old daughter Stella were responsible for putting together the group’s green looks.

The family’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration comes amid a chaotic couple of weeks for Spelling and McDermott.

On March 1, police were called to the couple’s home over a “disturbance.” LAPD Officer Drake Madison told PEOPLE the situation ended up being a “domestic incident” and that “no crime” was committed, although he could not confirm who placed the call.

Although the couple celebrated their son Beau’s first birthday on March 2, days later — on March 8 — McDermott called the police to check on his wife after she left their house, according to TMZ. Police reportedly surrounded her doctor’s office in Thousand Oaks, California before ultimately determining that both Spelling and the children were okay, according to TMZ.

A source recently told PEOPLE that Spelling is “in a tough place” and “can get very stressed,” noting that it isn’t easy for her to juggle five young kids at home.

“The last year has been really tough on Tori,” said another insider. “She has a ton of pressure and stress, with the kids, work and her marriage. She internalizes a lot of her anxiety and she knows it’s not healthy for her. Of course she’s going to get to a breaking point eventually.”

“Tori and Dean have their ups and downs,” added the source. “But they love each other and family is most important to both of them.”

Things seem to be on the mend between the couple, however, as they were photographed kissing earlier this week while filming scenes in Malibu for what TMZ reported is a Sharknado TV commercial.
