Kim Zolciak is being accused by her former cast mates of using the N-word as she walked off the set of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ for the last time. It all started after Kim was verbally attacked by her cast mates for backing out of the trip to Anguilla. A trip that was planned around her schedule. A trip that she probably had no desire to take in the first place. Some of the ladies, including NeNe Leakes, have alleged that Kim went overboard in her response to the fight and retaliated by using the N-word.
Kim hasn’t been seen much during season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Being pregnant again, newly married, and new mother to her son Kash cannot be easy for the blonde and it’s understandable why she might not have wanted to go. But many of the ‘Housewives’ had similar commitments and still managed to take time out for the trip.
Phaedra Parks kept a level head and brought it to Kim’s attention that the group collectively noticed that the new Mrs. Biermann wasn’t as eager to spend time with them since her new marriage. But, NeNe and Kandi Burruss let loose and gave Kim a piece of their mind. At that point, Kim finally broke down and told them what they all probably already knew to be true–she didn’t want to go with them to Anguilla and she didn’t feel like much of anyone at that table was truly her friend. And with that, she stormed off set–and said the N-word as her final goodbye?
Not so fast. Ms. Zolciak has taken to Twitter to refute those claims, mostly made by NeNe via her Twitter account. Kim denies that she ever used that word, instead insisting what she did say was “f-king ladies”…not the N-word.
Outside of Kim possibly using the N-word, she isn’t the only ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ that has brought the drama this season. Kenya Moore has shown herself to be shameless in her flirtation with the other women’s husbands and relentless in her quest to become a wife. She even went so far as to imitate a stripper, dancing on Cynthia Bailey’s husband Peter while the other ‘Housewives’ looked on. This prompted southern belle Phaedra to throw manners to the wind as she showed up at breakfast with a fishnet overlay and thong bathing suit. Now, everyone knows why her husband Apollo has his eyes on her; and only her.
All this drama begs the question: Can a group of women be friends without craziness abounding?
We sure can! It’s true that sometimes the lines between reality and reality TV seem to blur. And, even though shows such as the ‘Housewives’ franchise, The Bad Girls Club and other reality TV shows depicting women in various states of drama seem to get the most attention; most women would agree that their personal lives do not resemble that of the women on TV. Watching train-wreck reality TV can provide a nice escape from everyday life, but rarely does “reality TV” depict actual, normal life.
As for Zolciak, her new “reality” will continue next year on the Bravo show “Don’t Be Tardy…” As far as this new scandal over the whether or not Kim used the N-word–did she or didn’t she? While Kim has certainly been ridiculous on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’, I don’t think she’s crazy enough to use the N-word on national television. Do you?
