Things have been rocky between The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mates Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss after they disagreed over royalty payments for “Don’t Be Tardy For The Party” – at least that’s what happened on-screen.

Kandi produced the song for Kim and it was a hit with more than 100,000 downloads and Kim felt Kandi shouldn’t share much in the profits. This season, the two have tried really hard to get past the issue.
