InTouch: Kim Zolciak leaves ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ in Dec. 2 episode; her dad tells TMZ his daughter is a ‘pathological liar’

Kim Zolciak leaving "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"

When “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” released a cast photo before the season started, a certain someone was missing: Kim Zolciak.

From all the evidence, she was already gone from the show before shooting had ended this fall.

In Touch says her final appearance will be the Dec. 2 episode.

“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama; I just had to walk,” Kim tells In Touch about her midseason 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.”

What? She is giving an exclusive interview to In Touch and not to Life & Style, which has gotten all her exclusive wedding and baby photos?

Anyway, she declined to go on a trip to Anguilla with the other housewives because her doctor ordered her to stay put, given how advanced her pregnancy was. That would seem like a totally legit excuse but In Touch says the other ladies threw a fit about her frequent absences from their lives and she decided it was just time to cut loose.

Then again, the producers were probably tired of dealing with her not wanting to do much of anything or attend any event the other ladies were hosting, pregnancy or no pregnancy. The few times she has shown up for events, she clearly did not want to be there. She didn’t want to engage with the other women. She clearly did not care.

She gave us some fun times over the years (Big Poppa! Tardy for the Party!) but it’s clear that it’s over between Kim and “Real Housewives.” Bravo is shooting a spin-off show with her and without the other women. Her first spinoff earlier this year featuring her wedding did well enough to merit a second one.

In the meantime, remember Kim’s dad Joe? He was an avuncular, pleasant character on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” a nice counterpoint to Kim’s whiny, spoiled self.

But  she’s now in a public fight with her parents. First, her mother filed a request in court to see her grandchildren. Then Kim filed a counter-response saying that her kids don’t want to see their grandma. And now Joe tells TMZ that his daughter is a “pathological liar.” He told TMZ that she is not a good mother or role model, with four kids from three different daddies.

Holy public spat!

Now Kim has released her own statement to TMZ, expressing that she is “heartbroken and saddened” by her parent’s statements. In reality, she was probably cursing up a storm because 30% of her vocabulary consists of variation of the f-word.

“heartbroken and saddened by the derogatory and spiteful statements made by her mother and father, Karen and Joe Zolciak.”

Good riddance! I never liked her anyhow. She drank and smoked too much. She was too materialistic and had zero morals for sleeping with Big Poppa, a married man. Her attitude really sucks. I feel sorry for Kroy because he could’ve done so much better than saddling up with a potty mouth, lack of parental respect person like Kim. I mean really, who calls the cops on their own mother because she doesn’t want to use a porta-potty?

“30% of her vocabulary consists of variation of the f-word.”

I think more like 70% of her vocabulary would be more accurate.

Wonder how long her jock baby Daddy will hang in with this train wreck?

Man that stinks. He was one of the better dudes on the show. Although, his Adams Apple was a little large and he seemed to get a beer belly last year.

Well, I guess it’s good to go out on top or bottom or well whatever the situation calls for.

So, when does she start dancing at the Clermont Lounge again? Will there be a big comeback party featuring members of the Falcons along with Baton Bob?

I hope that RHOA casts a white woman to join the cast. I think the current women are great, but I think the show would benefit from some cultural balance.

Get rid of Porsha (dingbat) and Kenya (Amorosa Jr.).

Sadly I cannot say that I will miss Kim because she has become a shadow of her former reality tv persona, the wine drinking, cigarette smoking, married man screwing, recession-proof shopaholic “conversation piece” as she once called herself. Now with two more kids and a husband in tow, she is just boring; something that producers use to be filler for the more interesting storylines on the show. And as much as we want to vilify her past behaviors, they did give us, the public something to talk about! Truthfully, I do not want to watch Kim because she has become something that she inherently isn’t, the perfect wife and mother. In reality tv world no one wants to watch perfection and happiness play out, we like drama and discord, with a little dose of violence if it gets to that point in order for us to know that the people on the tv show are just like us. Kim was one of those people as one point, but like she said she got over it and with that, we got over her. I wish her the best, but I don’t honestly know what can come out of this new show she is working on. Reason being, she has no career goals and her friends seem to not have anything going for them other than seeing her fairy tale life stay that way. The only wild card I see that may make her show interesting are her oldest daughters coming on and acting WAY out!

I think Kim need to leave and the there doesn’t need to be another white house wife. Simply because they aren’t have the other Housewives show with lot of white women and no diversity, let this be a all brown

these woman aren't real

As vile as kim’s behavior can be, I am appalled at Porsha’s behavior and would never consider giving money to her charity.

Santa Claus arrives early this year, December 2, 2012, and he’s taking Kim Zolciak BACK TO, BACK TO, oh who cares where!!! And please Santa, make sure her elf, Sweetie, goes with her. GOOD RIDDANCE

she really got jealous of Kandi’s big ole house. I guess NeNe is gonna try to say she got her off the show as well.

Kim is WAY into herself. She is the most selfish of ALL of the housewives. But, she wasn’t a housewife, she was a mistress, so she shouldn’t have been cast in the first place. I don’t see Kroy staying with her. She pawns the baby off on the nanny if he isn’t smiling and laughing, and Kroy is not going to want his children raised that way, and by a foul-mouth self-centered mother. Look at Kroy’s mother….compare the 2!!! Look at the raising he has had…that is what he will be expecting for his children. She said Kandi’s house was in the ghetto…her nice huge home in the midst of attorneys and judges. She couldn’t be happy for her. Yes, she is racist, I don’t care what she claims, she is! She has absolutely NO claim to fame, and doesn’t deserve such a lavish home she has done nothing to obtain (she was evicted for not paying her interior decorator). And please, she cannot sing!!! She is lazy and spoiled and I hope her spin-off spins straight down! She shouldn’t get to have one since she wouldn’t even show up for the one she already has a contract to be on! :)

Not a problem. I’m sure they can find some more trailer trash to replace her. They’ve had no problem finding trash so far.

Kim is the most superficial of all the RH of all cities, including Jill Zaran. Sheree is so full of herself–her success—getting knoced up twice by a football player and then getting duped by him in the divorce settlement—good for him. Sheree has no class and full of crap and is trash. Kim is self-centered, selfish, greedy and therefore must be a Republican. She is the epitome of white trash. More trash is Nene and those two new ones–where the hell did they find them? Nasty trashy women. Phaedra is ploaying to the camera. She has smarts and connections but is showy y and garish. Kandi is te only one with talent and dignity. Of the current bunch, the only “housewife” is Phaedra and Kim. Cynthia Bailey is a bore, bore, bore. Her only redeeming feature is her husband.

Good Bye Kim…I hope to never see you again on any show or any where. You are trash, trash, trash.

I don’t subscribe to cable or satellite TV. I wouldn’t want to watch Real Houswives or the Kardashian’s… as well as wouldn’t want to watch Jersey Shore or any other trashy reality show eithr… and I feel that both reality franchises (Real Housewives and Kardashian’s) have over-stayed their welcome.

As for NeNe on the new NBC comedy The New Normal… that’s a different story.

@CJ, the other Real Housewives franchises could use some diversity as well – Orange Co., Beverly Hills, NY and NJ. You can’t tell me that there aren’t women of color in those areas who’d be willing to put their sordid business in front of the camera. I believe that the only other diverse show is Miami.

To those saying that all of the RHOA are black trash or don’t have a brain, get a clue. Kandi and Phaedra are very successful in their respective careers and didn’t depend on anyone to make their fortunes. Kandi was wise with her finances and is able to live well as a result, and not beyond her means like others. Phaedra is a successful attorney and making inroads into the funeral industry. Cynthia, while not hugely successful like Naomi Campbell or Cindy Crawford, carved out a nice career for herself and is still blessed to work. NeNe is making great progress in her acting career and seems to be making good decisions that will carry her far. The jury is still out on Kenya and Porsha, but at least Porsha is married and not someone’s mistress.

Tell us Rodney, you’ve met Kim and I am sure you have interviewed her. Is she as shallow, materialistic, and potty mouthed as she comes across on reality television? Is what we see an act or is it the real deal?

@Sluggo. I haven’t interviewed her in years. She got peeved at me at some point. I can’t even remember why. But from my limited time with her, yes, she is as shallow, materialistic and potty mouthed as she is on the TV cameras.

Dear Kroy: There are thousands of beautiful women out there who would love to marry an Atlanta Falcon. WHY did you pick this low rent, wig-wearing woman who brags about sleeping with a married man?

Is THIS why the NFL is so concerned about helmet-to-helmet contact?

Kim leaving is no surprise and most like a good thing for her and her family. I give her kudo’s for walking away. If she has reality show Bravo is filming it most like will be short lived. She needs to be quiet and live her life and be a mother and wife to her family and forgive your parents Kim at the end of the day they love you unconditionally.

The harsh words spoken you have hurt your family asking your mother to use a porta potty I would never that was horrible. then denying them to see your children those kids don;t know what they want. Don’t get me wrong you idea her parents are a mess too any parent who goes along with their child dating a married man they are kind of mixed up as well.

I know Kroy’s parents are embarrassed to no end and probably ask him all the time what were you thinking and now two kids later. Kroy you better get some action on the field before you all be packing up moving to Montana which probably would be good for you guys Kim needs a reality check.

But whatever faith has in store for her I wish her well.

“Phaedra is a successful attorney and making inroads into the funeral industry.”

LOL in the highest degree. That broad is a successful con artist. Check your stories before you post in the future, hon. Read up on Phaedra and her husband’s former con game. Like most of them on that show, she should be in jail (which is where she’ll end up one day once she gets caught in one of her cons).

Not even with an ARMY of Trojans wrapped around Mr. Wobbly Finger !!

I don’t think Kim’s too worried about what will happen from here on out. She’s an opportunist who knows how to latch on to someone else’s money, and in the case of Kroy, she got extra lucky because he also happened to be a nice guy. I’m sure the minute she realized his naivete, (and therefore, an easy target), she probably wet her pants w/excitement. Now he’s on the hook for child support for the next 18 years, so between that, and the money, jewelry and property she’s gotten from Big Poppa, she doesn’t need Bravo anymore.

It cracks me up that she’s always saying how she’s worked hard to get everything she’s got. Really? She bought that townhouse in Roswell all on her own, w/the money she made working at a nursing home? Riiiight.

I like Kim and she is just plain gorgeous. Although she has become classless and for this her outer beauty is diminished. Good for Ne Ne getting out there and making life happen. Cynthia you have heart and soul beauty which comes thru the very pores of your skin. Miss USA you better recognize!!!! :)

Can’t wait for the 10yr were are they now episode, broke, rehab, trailer park, bankruptcy, prostitution, adultery, felony, foreclosure, theft, drugs, juvenile detention, and last but not least, death, these are the words to most describe the future “Real trashy women of Atlanta Reunion Episode”. So excited.
