The constant catfights and vicious verbal smack downs have become too much even for the Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s most dramatic diva, and now Kim Zolciak is revealing why she ditched the show mid-season.
“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama, I just had to walk,” Kim told InTouch Weekly. “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 standoff that finally broke the five season alum occurred over a trip to the Caribbean island of Anguilla where costar Cynthia Bailey was renewing her vows with husband Peter Thomas, and when Kim announced she couldn’t make it – all hell broke loose!
“They couldn’t understand why I couldn’t go,” said the reality star, who gave birth; to son Kash Kade Biermann in August and was under strict doctor’s orders at the time not to travel. “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 wasn’t going to risk my baby’s health by getting on a plane.”
In light of what she considered to be the blatant disregard to her baby’s welfare, Kim decided enough was enough and bid farewell to the show that made her famous in an episode that will air on December 2nd.
“I can’t say it was easy to end that chapter,” the wife of Atlanta Falcon footballer Kroy Biermann told InTouch. “After all, I met my husband through this show.”
Fans need not stress however as the blonde bombshell will be back next April when her new spin-off show hits the air on Bravo.
“Would you rather film with a bunch of women or your family?” asked the Don’t Be Tardy To The Party singer. “I’d rather be with my family.”
