NeNe Leakes Talks
Former BFF Kim
Zolciak’s Exit From
'The Real Housewives
According to NeNe Leakes, there’s no room for a Negative Nancy on her show—even if it’s her former best friend, Kim Zolciak.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently opened up to In Touch about her former co-star Kim, and how she feels about the blonde mama’s dramatic exit from the Bravo hit.
EXCLUSIVE: Kim: Why I Quit Housewives
“I’m fine with it,” NeNe admits to In Touch about Kim’s choice to leave Housewives. “If you are a negative person and don’t contribute to the group, then you don’t deserve to be there. And if she doesn’t want to be there then that’s her choice.”
This November, In Touch exclusively revealed the real reason Kim decided to leave the show that made her famous.
“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama; I just had to walk,” Kim admitted. “I’ve taken on so much in the past five years, but this was the final straw. My priority was the child inside me.”
And now that the 34-year-old has given birth to baby Kash, she plans to return to TV for a second season of her spinoff show Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding.
But NeNe, who reportedly doesn't even speak to Kim anymore, claims she'll be just fine as long as Kim's negativity stays far away from her.
“Negative energy over and over again takes a toll on you,” NeNe admitted. “So, you know.”
