Kim Zolciak Quits The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Why Is She Leaving?
After months of denying that she would be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak has officially confirmed her departure from the show via In Touch magazine.
What the what?! How could you betray us like this, Kim?
“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama; I just had to walk,” she reveals.
As for what exactly pushed her over the edge, Kim says that all hell breaks loose in an upcoming episode in which she informs her co-stars that she won’t be going on the cast trip to Anguilla because she is thirty-six weeks pregnant. “They couldn’t understand why I couldn’t go,” Kim says. “Fighting is what we’re known for, but I’ve never disagreed with a pregnant woman. It’s not one life you’re dealing with, it’s two.”
Kim’s co-stars see the situation differently, saying that they all planned the trip around Kim’s schedule. And, boy-oh-boy, are they ever annoyed when she backs out. “She’s going to come up with every excuse she can possibly come up with,” NeNe Leakes dishes.
A Bravo rep confirmed to Wetpaint Entertainment that Kim will not appear on the show after the Dec. 2 episode.
And even though it was ultimately Kim’s choice to leave the show, she maintains that the decision to depart was extremely difficult because RHoA has become such a big part of her life. “I can’t say it was easy to end that chapter,” Kim says. “After all, I met my husband through this show.”
