NeNe Leakes already went after Kim Zolciak’s daughter last week. At a comedy show on Saturday in Oakland, she verbally attacked a heckler, hoping the audience member gets raped by her Uber driver on her way home.

Ta Mala Drake-Smith on Facebook posted the video. It doesn’t provide any context in terms of what the heckler said to set Leakes off.

Drake-Smith wrote: “So NENE LEAKES comes to Oakland at the Paramount, gets BOO’d then tells woman in crowd “she hopes the Uber driver that picks her up RAPES her” WOW. This is a prime example as to why EVERYBODY is NOT a comedian.”

As of early Monday afternoon, Leakes had not posted any comments regarding her diss.

UPDATE: At about 3 p.m. EST, she posted an apology on Instagram, noting in part: “As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used. I made a mistake and I should have known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I am sorry.”

I am sorry

The show in Oakland also featured professional stand-up comics Tiffany Haddish and Loni Love.

Leakes last week called Brielle Biermann, Zolciak’s oldest daughter, “racist trash” for showing video of a bug in one of her Leakes’ bathrooms.

If this is all publicity for the upcoming season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” returning November 5, it’s working. Leakes is getting plenty of ink (or the on-line equivalent.) Whether this will make it easier for her to get work in the scripted TV world, well, that’s a different story.
