In the scene, Zolciak arrives to find that Leakes is late to her own event. Pregnant-at-the-time Zolciak tires of waiting although, on her way to the exit, she and Leakes eventually run into each other. Zolciak makes the reasonable-sounding excuse that she needs to leave because she’s very late for a subsequent appointment. However, Leakes pressures Zolciak to stay for “five more minutes” to listen to a speech. Zolicak acquiesces if she’s allowed to go to the bathroom first but she really sneaks out the front door. Here’s the clip.
No other specifics are given during the episode about why Zolciak leaves.
However, in this week’s Bravo blog, Zolciak claims she left the building for her own personal safety. Moreover Zolciak alleges that Leaks is unstable, violent, and “unpredictable.”
I was invited to NeNe’s event the day before, and regardless of it being such short notice and being home packing all day, I attended. I decided to support NeNe regardless of the numerous times she’s verbally and physically attacked me. I’ve said this a million times and I stand by it: NeNe is unpredictable! I honestly didn’t feel comfortable, safe, or happy about going in the first place. I thought it was very odd and out of the blue she would want me at her event. For all I know, I could have blinked at her the wrong way and ended up in the pool. BUT I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt. ONCE AGAIN!
After waiting for almost TWO hours, I had to leave because Kroy had a dinner he had to attend, and I needed to take care of baby KJ. On my way out I saw NeNe, and she asked for me to stay 5 more minutes. I told her I couldn’t manage, but she was persistent so I said OK. I looked at my phone, saw the time, and just realized there was no way I would be able to stay any longer.
I didn’t feel like I owed NeNe anything, especially since I swallowed my pride and decided to show up anyway. My support and being there should have been enough, but some people are never satisfied. Let’s be honest, NeNe has a motive behind everything she does. Did that look like a genuine person standing there asking me to stay? I think NOT! At the end of the day, I had somewhere else to be… with my family. - via Kim Zolciak’s Bravo Blog.
