When we found out the Kim Zolciak was surely leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta after the Dec. 2 episode, we weren’t exactly surprised (rumors had been swirling about Kim’s limited involvement in Season 5 of the show for months), but spin-off aside, we did wonder why the fan favorite would willingly leave a show that made her a household name … and brought her to her husband!
In a chat with Bravo, Kim revealed, “The bottom line is this: I left Housewives because I was in a position where I was very pregnant and I'm at a very different place in my life. It's almost like I cannot relate to the other women.”
And despite what her nemesis NeNe Leakes says, Kim was not asked to leave the show.
“I was not fired, and it is unbelievable to me that NeNe would sit here and say something so ludicrous,” Kim said. “You can't get fired and then get a promotion. It doesn't make sense. Is she that angry? What's funny is she has so many things going on in her life but she's still staying tuned into me.”
We love NeNe, but Kim does have a point there. If NeNe is so satisfied with her own career, then why is she seemingly trashing Kim at every chance she gets?
But don’t think that Kim can’t play at NeNe’s game as well. She takes a swing at her former friend, saying, “So while NeNe has roles, I have shows.”
Can’t argue with that!
