Even though most of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast has turned against Kim Zolciak after her behavior this past season and her post-reunion rant, the same can’t be said for Real Housewives of different cities.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta celebrated their 10 year anniversary by counting down their top ten moments. I cannot believe that I’ve had NeNe Leakes in my life longer than I’ve had my children in my life, but the Bravo universe is vast and all-encompassing!
I was expecting the Real Housewives themselves to weigh in on all the past drama and spill some behind-the-scenes secrets, similar to when other cities have done an anniversary. I was also expecting to get catch-ups from retired cast members like DeShawn Snow or Kim Fields, but instead we were just handed a ton of flashback footage to reminisce over. There were weddings, breakdowns (often those two things combined), walk-offs, shade wars, and vintage footage of Wigs with her Cigs.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
So much for going out on top. Kim Zolciak left Real Housewives of Atlanta in the most controversial way she could. No one from the cast- including her girl Sheree Whitfield– had her back at the reunion. Even the reunion host Andy Cohen completely shut her down when he said, “There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season. It was all combative.”
Of course Kim’s mortal enemy NeNe Leakes had nothing but shade and insults in response to Kim’s appearance on the last reunion episode. Even the eternally sweet Cynthia Bailey had no issue hating on Kim.
Just in time for Throwback Thursday, Kim’s ex-girlfriend DJ Tracy Young is getting in on the conversation, after Kim dismissed their 8-month relationship during the episode.
Kim Zolciak just took to Instagram to explain her side of what we saw on part three of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kim is upset over the way things were taken out of context and blames social media as a “hub of hate.”
She shared, “During the last RHOA Reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people. Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country’s history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination. My love for ALL people runs deep – I am open to all and always have been.”
Thinking as a hypothetical reality TV producer, I assume that this would be a very interesting time to film Don’t Be Tardy. The always polarizing Kim Zolciak is embroiled in controversy after her appearance on the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion. The women called her out. They showed multiple flashback clips to refute her blatant lies. They even showed her behind-the-scenes bathroom chat with Andy Cohen where she complained about the questions she was asked and the fact that no one stood up for her.
Andy even put her in check when he said, “There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season. It was all combative.” All the bridges have been burned. Saying that it was “not a good look” for Kim is the understatement of the year. Nevertheless, it could provide some interesting footage for her show Don’t Be Tardy– or at least that’s what I assumed. Clearly I was wrong since there are reports that Kim halted production on Season 7 of her show in response to the reunion backlash.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion ended with Porsha Williams playing devil’s advocate, NeNe Leakes slamming metaphorical doors, Kim Zolicak trying to blame Andy Cohen as the reason that no one likes her, and Kenya Moore pretending she hadn’t just asked for a cocktail despite being pregnant. Good times, y’all, good times…
It’s fair to say that it wasn’t just NeNe who slammed the door shut on Kim’s Housewives career but Andy as well (Go Andy, it’s your birthday…). Kim showed up all season emotionally tardy for the party and positivity challenged, and also maybe her brain had been injected with Botox so it froze recollection of all her actions, words, and bad behaviors. How many times did Kim claim something didn’t happen then cut to footage of her saying some atrociously hideous lie?
