Things are just as drama-tastic as ever on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but sometimes we wonder if there’s something missing. Namely, our favorite blonde with a penchant for wine and wigs. 

Kim Zolciak’s departure earlier this season left a hole in our hearts and the Atlanta housewives cast, and while the following episodes’ ratings have never been higher, that doesn’t mean that everyone’s satisfied with the new Kim-less lineup.

Sure, we’ll still see Kim on her new recently confirmed spin-off, but her presence on the show that started it all is pretty crucial — her fights with with NeNe Leakes alone will go down in The Real Housewives Hall Of Fame! 

So, what do you guys think? Has The Real Housewives of Atlanta gone downhill since Kim left, or is the show better off without her?
