Kim Zolciak Tells Why She Quit RHOA

2012 NBC Universal Summer Press Day

Kim Zolciak is telling the world that she quit The Real Housewives of Atlanta in favor of her own family-themed spin-off. Zolciak made the claim, which NeNe Leakes has already disputed, in a new interview with In Touch.

On why she quit The Real Housewives of Atlanta:

“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama; I just had to walk. I’ve taken on so much in the past five years, but this was the final straw. My priority was the child inside me.

They couldn’t understand why I couldn’t go. 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.”

I can’t say it was easy to end that chapter. After all, I met my husband through this show.”

Meanwhile, Straight From The A! is singing the same song as NeNe i.e. Kim got the ax:

Let me set the record straight (yet again)…

The truth of the matter is that Kim was booted because none of the ladies on the show wanted to tape with her. Point Blank Period.

The “vets” (Nene Leakes, Pheadra Parks, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey) all banned together last summer and REFUSED to tape due to the fact that Kim either always left tapings early or sometimes wouldn’t come at all.
