Is Kim Zolciak putting an end to her Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff, Don’t Be Tardy?

According to a new report, the mother of six has “stopped filming” the series after facing major backlash over comments made about racism during the third installment of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.

“Kim and her team have halted all production for Don’t Be Tardy while her lawyers have been working around the clock to investigate and deal with the final episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion,” a source told Us Weekly.

“Kim has pulled the plug on filming. She’s very upset about the entire situation,” added another insider.

As fans saw during Sunday night’s episode, Kim pulled Real Housewives creator Andy Cohen aside and expressed frustration over the way she was treated by him and her co-stars during season 10.

“How much can a person take? There wasn’t even one positive question for me,” Kim said.

“There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season. It was all combative,” Andy responded.

Also during the show, Kim suggested that racism wasn’t real.

“This whole racism thing, in this day and age, is bullsh*t,” she claimed. “Everyone of those motherf*ckers on that couch owe this world a f*cking apology for this racism shit. Nobody really bought into it because the social media wasn’t there, and racism wasn’t all that real.”

After the show aired, fans on Twitter called for the cancelation of Don’t Be Tardy.

One fan even launched a petition for the show to be canned on

Earlier this month, after filming on the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was complete, Kim left the series for good.

“Kim and Bravo agreed she wouldn’t come back,” a source revealed at the time. “None of the girls will film with her. They refuse.”

Sheree Whitfield will also not be included in season 11.

Kim starred on The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the show’s first five seasons and returned as a “friend of the Housewives” for season 10.

Don’t Be Tardy began airing 2012 and aired it sixth season at the end of last year.
