Andy Cohen talk Kim Zolciak

Andy Cohen nearly walked off the set of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion special earlier this year.

During an appearance on The Jenny McCarthy Show days ago, Andy admitted that he felt Kim Zolciak was ganged up on by the other women to the point where he began to feel uncomfortable about the vibe between the ladies.

“Atlanta this season… I had a really rough time with the last chunk of that when Kim was on because it got very… I hate a five against one situation because it is a gang up and the problem is that Kim was not… It’s less problematic when the person is good at taking up for themselves and Kim was not having an easy time with her words,” he explained.

“[Kim] was making it harder for herself,” he continued.

According to Andy, he completely lost control of the reunion after Kim joined her co-stars to hash out the events of season 10.

“In retrospect in thinking of it, no one was listening to me and I really did not have control of the room,” he admitted. “I wish I had walked off of that reunion because I’ve never walked off. Everyone else has walked off. The next day, I was like ‘Dammit, you should have walked off. Why didn’t you walk off?’”

Andy also addressed the controversial conversation he had with Kim off-stage, which included Kim defending herself against racist allegations from her co-stars and insisting that there were tons of positive things about her life that Andy could have focused on.

“In that moment, I was literally like, ‘Oh no, the reunion is done. They are never using this,’” he recalled. “I was so dumb! And I said to them after, I was like, ‘You know, I don’t think that was interesting.’ I am dumb sometimes.”

“I am always thinking as a producer but in that moment, I was so exhausted,” he added.

Following filming on the reunion, Kim announced that she would no longer be appearing on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

As for her spinoff, Don’t Be Tardy, Kim is reportedly in production on season seven, despite calls for the series to be canceled earlier this year.
