The final installment of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion exploded Sunday night — and Kim Zolciak-Biermann was seeing red.
Kim played it cool on set, but broke down after her exit, pulling Andy Cohen aside for a private meltdown in the ladies room. While blowing off about her rough reunion experience — Kim blurted out a shocking diatribe about the hot-button topic of the season.
“That bitch knows I’m not racist. NeNe knows I’m not racist,” Kim told Cohen. “You know why you have not found another white woman to [join the cast]? Because nobody is dumb enough to do that! Put yourself in my shoes — five African-American women — just hammered! I couldn’t even speak, my mind’s a fu**ing whirlwind!”
Kim was tagged as a racist during the season, after she commented that Nene Leakes was “sick and disgusting” for living in a “roach nest.” Several of the women took offense to the characterization during the reunion, likening the slam to a cultural stereotype of impoverished black women, living in housing projects.
Kim didn’t stop there. She ranted her view on the role social media plays in the overall racial climate — noting that before the social media age, “racism wasn’t fu**ing all that real.”
“This whole racism thing in this day in age is bullsh*t. Everyone of those motherf*ckers on that couch owe this world a f*cking apology for this racism sh*t,” Kim said. “They already tried to claim that sh*t long ago. Nobody bought into it then because the social media wasn’t there and racism wasn’t fu**ing all that real. You know it.”
Twitter exploded during the episode — dozens of fans raking Kim for her controversial tantrum.

.@Kimzolciak now has white tears and somehow has the audacity to think she deserves credit for being the only white woman who chose to be on stage with Black women who called her out on her privilege on live television. Gurl, bye. #RHOA

Racists believe they are superior beings because of their race. The last minute of the reunion, that ideology was on full display @Kimzolciak. @Bravotv I hope you re evaluate your relationship with non-racist racists. #RHOA

@Kimzolciak we already knew you were racist way back when you had your “assistant “ which you treated like shit. It’s no surprise

Sheree Whitfield received her own blowback after the episode — the Bravoleb present but decidedly silent during Kim’s outburst.

I can’t believe you allowed @Kimzolciak to say racism isn’t real and that she was GANGED up on by 5 African American women!! You were a disgrace to every black woman to sit there and be silent when she was clearly disrespecting ALL black people.
