Kim Zoliack Confirms Departure From Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reality Show
Despite much scrutiny and some heavy sideeye-age from her fellow frenemy cast members, RHOA Kim Zoliack says she is heading for the door and not looking back at her lengthy stint on the drama-filled reality show.

“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama; I just had to walk,” Kim tells In Touch about her mid season exit from the hit Bravo series. “I’ve taken on so much in the past five years, but this was the final straw. My priority was the child inside me.”
The drama unfolded over a trip to the Caribbean island of Anguilla, where co-star Cynthia Bailey would be renewing her vows with husband Peter Thomas. When Kim, who was 36 weeks pregnant at the time and under strict doctor’s orders not to travel, announced she wouldn’t be coming, all hell broke loose.
“They couldn’t understand why I couldn’t go,” Kim — who gave birth to son Kash a few weeks later, in August — says about her fellow Housewives, unleashing their collective fury. “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.”
Hear what Kim’s catty castmates had to say about her reasons for leaving the show when you hit the flip….
Kim’s co-stars give their side of the story on the Dec. 2 episode. Kandi Burruss says that the cast planned the trip around the dates Kim told them she was initially available, and all the cast members pipe in over Kim giving a laundry list of excuses.
“She’s going to come up with every excuse she can possibly come up with,” explains her former best friend, NeNe Leakes, who goes on to mimic Kim, saying, “My blood pressure was going up. My hair was shedding. My nails were comin’ loose. I couldn’t walk.”
Hmmm. Do you think Kim is ready to roll out and tired of the drama, or is she just making up excuses like her cast mates assume?
