Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Nene Leakes, and Cynthia Bailey are reportedly "optimistic" about their friendship moving forward.

Last week, we reported that the pair had been caught filming the upcoming season - and appeared to be having a heated conversation over drinks.

But the pair seemed to have hashed out their differences and are looking to the future.

"Cynthia is optimistic for a friendship with NeNe, but it will be a different dynamic than what it was before," a source told HollywoodLife. 

"It's hard to see they'll ever have a kind of friendship like they used to again. NeNe too is optimistic, but sees there are lots of challenges. She's not sure if she can trust Cynthia again, and once you break NeNe's trust, it's hard to move forward with her. Both Cynthia and NeNe feel they are trying to get to a better place, but they're having trouble seeing the other's point of view on things. Having said that, things are getting better. They both are taking some steps to get there and are both putting in effort."

Fans will have to wait until the new season airs on Bravo later in the fall. But it's great to hear that Nene and Cynthia may be renewing their friend contract.
