The Real Housewives of Atlanta is losing one of it's most popular hellraisers. After five seasons of catfights, breakups, makeups, and births all in front of the Bravo cameras, Kim Zolciak is reportedly leaving the show.
According to Us weekly, the "Tardy For the Party" singer, who is seven months pregnant in current episodes, will exit mid-season. Her decision comes after an epic battle -- but not with whom you might expect.
"Kim has a total blowout with production," a source told the magazine. The argument began after costar Cynthia Bailey invited all the women to Anguilla for her vow renewal but the pregnant Kim was unable to attend. Her chat with production about it escalated into a huge fight. "Kim was furious," added the insider.
During a November 2011 interview, she had said, "I want positivity around me." Not much of that among her so-called "friends" on that show. "With these ladies, I feel like nine times out of 10, there's going to be an argument," she told Us. "They're not happy for me. They're not supportive."
I can't blame her for bowing out. From the start of the series, she has been in the middle of some of the nastiest fights. Whether her wig was being yanked off or her singing mercilessly ridiculed, it hasn't been an easy road for Zolciak. Her decision to leave is probably her smartest move yet. Finally she can stop being humiliated on TV - that is until she gets another spin-off.
Do you think Kim should leave the show?
