Last night, we watched Kim Zolciak break down on national television during an episode of her spin-off, Don't Be Tardy. We've never seen her so emotional and vulnerable, neither on her show nor The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but finding out that her father was trash-talking her was the final straw for the blonde mama.

Now we are getting word that there's a reason Kim's parents are turning on her: money. One of Kim's friends took to Twitter to reveal the truth behind all of the drama.

"I know for a FACT @Kimzolciak parents are getting paid from SEVERAL media outlets to LIE about Kim !! Saw it with my own eyes #sickening," the insider ranted.

If this is true, the situation is even worse than we think. We can't imagine it feels too great to have your parents sell you out and call you a bad parent for a little cha-ching.
