Kim Zolciak has given an Interview to Bravo’s The Dish about her upcoming departure episode from Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA). Looks like we had the whole thing figured out pretty much correctly. First, let’s look at the Bravo writer’s intro:
By now, you may have heard that Kim Zolciak will handing in her Real Housewives of Atlanta peach and reprising her spin-off show Don’t Be Tardy… for a second season. There’s plenty of accusations being thrown around regarding Kim’s exit, so The Dish went straight to Kim to find out what really went down when it came to her dramatic Housewives departure, her future show, those nasty rumors and who she plans on staying in touch with on the RHOA cast (her answer might surprise you).
Looks to me like Bravo is confirming that she quit. They did not do this with Sheree. They go on to interview Kim who repeatedly says she quit. From here on out, the purple text is my comments.
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. I want to be home with my family, and it was just so combative and so aggressive. I can handle it and I have for five years, but it got to the point where my blood pressure was really high, and it wasn’t before I started filming. I had another life to think about. It’s really that simple.
I was not fired, and it is unbelievable to me that NeNe would sit here and say something so ludicrous. 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.
Lots of animosity between Kim and Nene. Nene has been all over twitter saying Kim got fired. I don’t think she even did that when Sheree actually did get fired. Nene also mocks the blood pressure stuff on the show. I don’t know why anyone would mock a pregnant person’s blood pressure issues. Seems kinda low.
On the upcoming episode of Housewives, you make quite a dramatic exit. What was your mindstate when that all went down?
I had a lot going on personally. I was moving, I had a one year old at home and a lot of personal things going on. That lunch started out fine, and it got rather aggressive. The ladies were coming at me. I could not go to Anguilla — I had my son four weeks to the day that they left. Anguilla is another country that you can only get to by boat or helicopter, and I had KJ three weeks early. I just couldn’t go. It just got so nasty so fast. I felt like the whole table was coming at me and I was feeling so upset and stressed that I just got up and said ‘I’m done.’ I don’t need to be in that position. My main concern at that time was my son in my stomach. They can all come and attack me, I can handle myself and I’ve proven that over the years, but for me I had my son’s health that I had to think about. I was getting so upset. My husband was outside in the car and saw how hysterical I was and he said ‘Kim, enough is enough.’ I tell the cameras ‘get the f— out of my face,’ and that’s it. I didn’t film another scene.
I hesitate to bring it up and start the onslaught of gestational stories in comments, but Kim did not give birth four weeks to the day that after the others left for Anguilla. It was five weeks as I told you here. I don’t know why that bothers me other than it’s simply not true. It seems I was right that Kroy finally had enough of Kim’s filming amid all the drama and catfighting. We’ve successfully spoiled the departure, which I’d just like to point out I broke the exclusive on here. So nothing here we didn’t already know.
So what will Tardy be about with no wedding to plan?
It’s about my family. I had a really great time doing Tardy for the Wedding. As stressful as it was planning the wedding, I had a really good time doing the show. I think people got to see more of who I am and my surroundings when I’m not placed in combative situations. Do I get into disagreements with friends and family? Of course, it’s life! But I’m filming with my family … And, you know, who doesn’t want their own show? I’m so blessed to have that. It’s incredible and I’m grateful for that. So while NeNe has roles, I have shows.
LOL love that last line.
