Kim Zolciak waves goodbye to the ladies of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Throughout the last and the current season, viewers of RHOA heard rumblings Kim would be departing the Bravo smash hit. The Peach State diva kept coy when asked what her status would be on the series, after her wedding broadcasted on the network.

Last week, Kim finally revealed she will indeed be leaving RHOA, but what exactly triggered the decision? The “Don’t Be Tardy For The Party” singer hinted her exit from the series involved a disagreement on an upcoming trip, but was that the case?

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Sunday’s episode, “No Excuse for Excuses.”

Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak met up for brunch to discuss Cynthia Bailey’s idea for them to head away on a couples vacation to the sunny isle of Anguilla. The ladies all agreed they would schedule the trip around dates safe for Kim to fly. Everything seemed to be going well, until Kim claimed she needed doctor clearance to officially go. However, the wigged spitfire quickly changed her mind about everything and announced she wouldn’t be attending the trip.

Kim insisted she couldn’t risk the travel to Anguilla being eight months pregnant with eight weeks left in her pregnancy. Wait, what? The women were fine with the excuse given, until Kim remarked she and her football player husband Kroy Biermannhad a trip planned the same time the couples retreat would take place.

Oh, Kim, you just should’ve kept quiet! Kandi was livid with Kim’s foul attitude and commented that she and the other ladies reworked their entire schedules around the dates Kim gave for travel. Kim quipped, if the ladies wanted to join her on her little getaway they can, but she never gave them those dates.

A fed up NeNe remarked, whenever they planned anything, Kim always came up with a reason to opt out. The ladies all joined in and agreed with NeNe’s assessment of Kim, but the wannabe singer maintained she never signed off on the dates of travel. NeNe was adamant Kim sent everyone a list of dates, and demanded she tell the truth. NeNe’s ultimatum caused Kim to storm out of the restaurant and shove a cameraman! Pregnancy hasn’t slown down Kim’s temper one bit!

Buzz Moments

OMG!: Porsha Stewart remarked, her family’s charity works 265 days of the year. Can someone give her a calender and calculator?

Thank you, TV gods.:  Kim being called out on her flaky antics. Embrace and admit it, Kim, you just aren’t into the other housewives!

Awk-ward: Kandi telling Phaedra she was using her kegel balls while they were out shopping. Yes, they are tight friends but some things need to be kept a secret.

Hotness: NeNe’s ex-Gregg continued pursuit for her. Man has some old school charms, which are working his way back to NeNe!

Fab-u-lous: Phaedra and Kenya’s attire for go-kart racing. Only southern belles would compete in a little red dress and skin tight jeans.

Can. Not. Wait.: Anguilla trip! It is a RHOA tradition and rite of passage for chaos and drama to happen while on vacation
