Taking to her social media over the weekend, mama bear came out and ripped Bravo a new one.

Revealing it was "obviously postponed" which Brielle "appreciated very much," Kim Zolciak immediately switched gears and trashed WWHL, which airs on Bravo -- the same network as Don't Be Tardy.

"You can't f--king tell me that nobody knew this information the day of filming! She filmed 3 days later... it [Ethan's death] was nationwide... not once was Ethan's death mentioned or considered," she continued.

Adding, "My baby sat there with a brave face not saying a word trying to stay strong," despite crying on Kim's shoulder only moments before. 

Her anger comes as fans bashed Andy Cohen for not asking Brielle about bestie's death on the WWHL special episode, which aired on Sunday.

It also stems from him questioning her about those plastic surgery rumors, something that startled Brielle and made the other kids on the show laugh.

Kim Zolciak made it clear -- she's not mad at Cohen for coming after her child but does appear to be angry at Bravo for not being more sensitive during Brielle's grief. 

“I will say that Andy Cohen did text me a week later apologizing saying he was unaware of the situation! I didn’t expect Andy to know…He has an entire at Bravo TV that should know!!”

She ended her statement by writing, “You guys know how I feel…..Mess with me fine…Mess with my kids is an entirely different story. I raised some strong girls and I am so proud of them.”

Brielle's best friend died after being struck by a vehicle early last month. As Radar reported, Kim's daughter donated thousands of dollars to Ethan's GoFundMe to help pay for his funeral.

Kim Zolciak seems to be speaking her truth on how she really feels about the network after Bravo pulled the plug on her hit show after 8 seasons. 

In a statement to Radar, Bravo said, “We have enjoyed watching the incredible journey of Kim, Kroy and their entire family who grew up right before our eyes.  We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share their life and all the touching moments with our audience."
