Although Kim hadn't gone on the trip her presence was still hanging over the group as NeNe Leakes used it as an excuse to rile things up with the other women. When she found out that Sheree and Kandi had called Kim from South Africa NeNe started making digs at them, saying Kim was their boss.
In previous seasons this is where the wig pulling and/or table-flipping would normally kick off, but NeNe's already said how tiring and draining all the drama is, so this time they stuck to bitchy remarks and sarcasm rather than fisticuffs.
As Sheree said, NeNe made it all about herself, although she did take some potshots at Cynthia along the way. In the end, though, the women seemed to agree that they're all their own bosses, even if some are definitely bossier than others.
