The feud between NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams continued this past weekend with an incident at an Atlanta Women's Expo.

Things got off to a bad start between the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and talk show host at The Ultimate Women's Expo, which took place at the Georgia World Congress Center, after Williams' husband-manager Kevin Hunter demanded that organizers move the reality star's neighboring dressing room away from his wife's, according to Daily Mail.

"He told them to move her as far away as possible," a source told the outlet, stressing that Hunter was "adamant that he wanted his wife nowhere near NeNe."

The tension escalated after Leakes jabbed Williams, mocking an anecdote the talk show host made in her speech about "10 rules every woman should live by."

Looking to upstage her longtime rival, Leakes took the stage in her hometown declaring, "I'm your homegirl -- I live my life as an open book, and I'm happy I don't need 10 rules to live by!"

Hunter exploded backstage at the diss, an insider said, telling organizers to remove Leakes' "motherf**king a** off the stage," and to "cut that b*tch's mic off."

Leakes' confidante Diana Gowins then confronted Hunter, as Leakes continued to deliver her speech onstage, not knowing about the hubbub going on around her. He then left the event prematurely with Williams, who was busy autographing copies of her book, leading to event organizers issuing refunds for those who did not get their copies signed.

Leakes, who later appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday, later acknowledged the incident, telling Andy Cohen, "I didn't even see Wendy or her husband today.

"A lot happened backstage with her husband, I heard," she said. "Just because I was on stage, he went completely crazy, I heard."

Other big names who appeared at the event included Leakes' pal Kim Zolciak, Melissa Gilbert and Nancy Grace.
