It is probably for several good reasons that Kim Zolciak seems to be edging out of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" landscape. Another pregnancy and other family obligations reportedly cut her time short on the reality hit's fifth installment. But if you've been keeping up with the headlines, you could probably see the wig-wearing star's dwindling presence from miles away. Here's why cast mates (and possibly viewers) have had their fill of Kim...
Has she revealed her true colors?
Neither viewers nor Kandi Burruss were too pleased when Kim and Sweetie visited Kandi's estate. A few off-hand remarks about the safety of the neighborhood rubbed the former XScape singer the wrong way. The off-color remarks continued as she toured the house, with her even commenting that Kandi wouldn't need sun at her indoor pool since she is black. This is just one of many unfortunate issues that have kept Kandi and Kim from continuing a friendship that at one time, seemed so promising.
Marriage and (new) motherhood doesn't become her.
Practically doubling her family in such a short time, it's no wonder that Kim's priorities have changed. But it seems that since she's married Kroy and become a mother twice over, the ladies have noticed a marked absence from the group. Both Phaedra and Cynthia are married; yet they still find ways to balance career and family-and make time for the on-screen shenanigans for which they signed up. The ladies might feel differently if the rambunctious blonde had more responsibilities. But Kim doesn't have a job to speak of, and seems to spend more energy directing her household staff than anything else.
Her parents have ratted her out.
After the big production of moving into her dream home (and ultimately marrying there) Kim became faced with the prospect of homelessness. There's just one problem: sources now say that Kim's "homeless" cries are nothing but hooey. And according to her father, Joe Zolciak, the reality star is prone to telling a tall tale or two. In fact, TMZ.com claims that Joe thinks his daughter is a pathological liar. Viewers already witnessed the discord in Kim's family. She had her mother removed from the home on her big day, during the taping of "Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding." The bitterness has even spilled over into a lawsuit surrounding the grandparents' visitation rights with Kim's children. There's always more than one side to a story. But the reality star's trouble with her parental units reveals quite a few cracks in Kim's fairytale foundation.
