Kim Zolciak, formerly of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has been adamant about the latest accusations against her that she was smoking cigarettes last week while pregnant with her fifth child. Earlier this week, the mama displayed her outrage on Twitter, declaring that her lawyers were stepping in to handle the situation and she wasn't bluffing. According to TMZ, the Don't Be Tardy star has issued a cease and desist letter to the photo agency responsible for the incriminating shots.

"Sources close to Kim tell us, she has sent a cease and desist letter to the agency ... accusing them of purposely deceiving the public about 2 sets of photos they shot," TMZ writes.

Although Kim can't place when the photos were snapped, she insists that they were taken a while ago and not on the same day as a different set of pictures showing her in a similar outfit with an almost identical bump and hairstyle.

Perhaps her strongest point in the case is that the shutterbug was apparently trespassing when he snagged the pics, regardless of when they were taken.

"According to our sources," TMZ reports, "Kim feels the agency defamed her by creating a made-up scandal — and she also claims the photog was trespassing when the smoking pics were taken."

The smoking images have since been removed and Kim has requested an apology. But, she might sue them anyway!

Do you think the lady doth protest too much? In other words, do you think Kim was smoking and is super mad she got caught, or do you think the photo agency has fabricated the story? Sound off in the comments below.
