NeNe Leakes is all about second chances, when it comes to her friend-turned-enemy, Kim Zolciak.

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star is set to re-marry her ex-husband, Gregg, and she may have an unexpected guest in attendance -- her reality show nemesis.

In a new interview with In Touch magazine, the "New Normal" actress reveals that she and Zolciak buried the hatched during the recent taping of the Season 5 reunion special, which will air in three installments on Bravo beginning April 7.

"[Kim's] invited to my wedding, and I believe she'll come," says Leakes, 45. "I'm extending an olive branch."

And Zolciak is accepting it. "I have always been and I continue to be happy for NeNe, and I look forward to being invited to the wedding," she also tells In Touch. "NeNe and I started this journey together and although we have had our ups and downs, I am excited to get our friendship back on track ... We were friends long before 'RHOA,' and we will be friends long after 'RHOA' if it's up to me."

The friendship has had its ups and downs over the years since the first season of "RHoA" in 2008. Although the two were often shown palling around town, things soured for the comedic duo by the Season 1 reunion special when Leakes infamously scolded Zolciak to "close your legs to married men." (Other gems Leakes has hurled at her over the years include calling Zolciak a "trashbox" and "dirty, low-down monkey with a wig.")

During filming for Season 2 in 2009, Zolciak actually called 911 after she claimed Leakes attempted to "choke" her. Then all hell broke loose in Season 3 when Leakes and Zolciak got into a screaming match on a tour bus and the two both had to be physically restrained.

After an argument with all of the Atlanta Housewives this season, Zolciak abruptly quit … and then landed her own spin-off, "Don't Be Tardy," Season 2 of which premieres on Bravo April 16.

Are you happy that Kim and NeNe are friends once again? Think it will last this time?
