Just because Kim Zolciak is no longer a full Housewife and doesn't get that huge Real Housewives salary doesn't mean that she can't pull her weight when it comes to drama.
Specifically, after it appeared that Kim had claimed that Kandi Burruss tried to hook up with her, the two have been fighting over the truth.
In the video below, Kandi is speaking out about her beef with Kim on Watch What Happens Live.
Okay, so there's a lot of convoluted she-said-she-said going on, because The Real Housewives of Atlanta wouldn't be the success that it is if it weren't about a bunch of grown, affluent women participating in drama that most of us haven't seen since 7th grade.
But it starts with Kim speaking to Sheree and what she says of Kandi Burrsss.
"I also know a lot about Kandi. I'm just saying the threesome part with the hubby — the elevator's not going to the top floor if you're willing to share your f–king man."
And then Kim's accusation that Kandi propositioned her:
"Let me tell you about Kandi — on my kids' life, if God strikes me dead — I wouldn't let her lick my box."
In other words, Kim appears to be claiming that Kandi wanted to go down on her, but that Kim declined.
Kandi was displeased. Kandi took to Twitter to rant about Kim, and the two got into a bit of a social media tiff over it.
"I’m sick of these bitches lying on me. @KimZolciak I have NEVER wanted you or your box. And stop swearing on your kids while you’re telling lies. Lying ass bitch."
And then Kandi reminded Kim Zolciak that Kim is demoted to a part-time Real Housewife. She's a "friend of the housewives," even though she's not exactly friendly.
"Somebody’s really reaching for a permanent peach here… This is my house. You’re just a visitor!"
Angrily, Kim Zolciak hit back, saying:
"If anybody is lying it's you Kandi. You and your husband are full on swingers f–king all kinds of girls and can NEVER admit it."
So she's doubling down on her accusations.
And she didn't let the reminder of her new, lesser status go unanswered.
"And bitch if it weren't for me there would be no house. Remember I built this house!"
So, that's already a lot.
Well, Kandi is speaking on Watch What Happens Live, which has to be a little awkward, because Andy Cohen is the host but also, ultimately, her boss.
"That's some bullcrap. That was a lie."
There's not a lot of ambiguity to that statement.
"And then the thing that I really don't like is that she texted me and said that you guys edited her to make her look like she was saying that, and I said, first of all, from what I saw, it looked like you said that, so that's a lie."
As you'll see in the video below, Andy Cohen makes a point of drinking at the time rather than responding to Kim's indirect allegation of misleading editing.
Kandi says that she just wants Kim to tell the world that it didn't happen.
"If you didn't say that and they edited it, just tell the world. I'm still waiting. I'm still waiting for her to do it."
Maybe Kim wil do as Kandi wishes, but we wouldn't recommend that she hold her breath.
Obviously, reality shows engage in all sorts of editing shenanigans. It goes with the territory.
Maybe Kim didn't really say that.
But it seems clear from Kim Zolciak's tweets that she's at least making some accusations of Kandi.
