What was supposed to be an Eyes Wide Shut masquerade ball for charity turned into a “Mouths Wide Open” shouting match on Sunday’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Kenya Moore organized the event not only to raise funds for Saving Our Daughters, one of NeNe Leakes’s favorite charities, but also to get back in her good graces after their falling out at the pajama party turned brawl.

“I never received an invitation,” said Leakes, although Moore had sent her an E-vite. “You don’t have a charity event for someone and not call them Why would I be going to the ball?”

But an incensed Leakes, 45, decided to attend, forgoing a mask and any etiquette skills.

When Moore, 42, who auctioned off hot bachelors for charity, called an unprepared Leakes to the microphone to say a few words, she made her anger apparent, tersely saying a few words before handing the mic back to a stunned Moore.

“It’s amazing how many good friends I have and don’t know about it,” Leakes said icily. “I’d like to thank Saving Our Daughters, which is one of many charities that I work with.”

Cue exit left and haughty strut by Leakes (with more attitude than any runway show).

“How dare you?” Leakes said after her departure. “I didn’t even know I had to speak you can’t play a chick like me. I was hopeful I could come to the event and switch gears, but I couldn’t.”

“This is completely uncalled for,” said Moore. “It’s pathetic.”

Peter Thomas, Cynthia Bailey’s husband, seemed to be in agreement, leading a mass exit from the event, but it was actually Leakes who was in for a surprise.
