ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Kim Zolciak leaves RHOA tonight. But why did Kim Zolciak leave Real Housewives of Atlanta? It depends on who you ask. Was Kim Zolciak fired, did she leave to do her spinoff, or was it all about a trip’s cancellation? Fans are starting to wonder if the entire exit by Kim Zolciak from RHOA, and the accusations by NeNe, have been embellished by Bravo.
Weeks ago, LALATE broke news that Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes erupted into a twitter feud, almost perfectly timed, about Kim’s exit. Three issues came up in that feud. First, was Kim’s exit voluntarily or a firing. Second, did Kim leave RHOA for a spinoff show, or does the spinoff have nothing to do with her RHOA exit. And finally, were producers furious about Kim’s cancellation from the RHOA trip.
First, Leakes claims that producers designed the RHOA trip around Kim’s pregnancy. Tonight Kim tells RHOA fans “My priorities have changed … I want positivity around me. [The Atlanta women are] not happy for me. They’re not supportive.”
But is that a true statement by Kim? The cast is left speechless about the trip cancellation tonight. First Kim tells them she might go on the trip.
“Yah I’m gonna talk to my doctor. At 28 weeks, you can’t travel. But I would love to go because I went last year.” Suddenly, Kim changes and says she is definitely not going. “It is what it is. I have 8 weeks left in my pregnancy. So I definitely cannot go.”
Kim then confuses her story. She says that she is willing to go on a trip with her husband. “We are going for four days.” NeNe finds that shocking. “You can’t going on the girls’ trip?”
Second, Kim says she voluntarily left the show. Kim Zolciak will appear on WWHL tonight and is expected to tell the same side of the story that she has been giving for weeks. She asserts that she chose to voluntarily leave, in the middle of the season, from RHOA.
That just not true, claims NeNe Leaks. “None of the girls or producers wanted 2 work with her! Saving face like all the other ex housewives! U were FIRED! Good bye ”
Finally, Kim claims that she left RHOA for her spinoff. NeNe claims that also is false. NeNe claims the TV contract for the spinoff was inked months before Kim walked out of RHOA. NeNe claims that Kim didn’t leave RHOA for the spinoff. Leakes claimed that, once Kim left RHOA, Bravo still had to honor a previously existing contract for the spinoff. “U had an existing deal that the[y] honored … keep it 100[% real].”
The big question, however, is whether Andy Cohen will have NeNe Leakes call in during Kim’s appearance on WWHL tonight.
