Andy Cohen is changing his tune after claiming Kim Zolciak was ganged up on during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion earlier this year.
After appearing on The Jenny McCarthy Show days ago and suggesting that Kim’s co-stars rallied against her in what he described as a “five against one situation,” Andy admitted to the hosts of The Breakfast Club that he “misspoke.”
“I should not have said that she was ganged up on,” Andy explained. “I was frustrated by the tenor of the reunion and what I was most frustrated in was myself and that’s what I was trying to say.

Andy was then forced to weigh in on Kim’s statements about racism. As fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will recall, Kim suggested during the reunion taping that racism wasn’t “all that real” before later apologizing with a statement on her Instagram page.
“I think [Kim] has a hard time seeing the nuance in her words, which has happened by the way, for 10 years on the show,” Andy explained. “We showed clips of her referring to things in early seasons that the women were pissed about that had overtones. I know that she has a real friendship with Sheree. I know she had a real friendship with Kandi and I’m interested in what the two of them really feel about where she stands.”
“She did not express herself well and what I think that she was saying is that in an era of social media, something that you say can be blown up and made bigger. That’s what I think she meant,” he added.
In other Real Housewives of Atlanta news, NeNe Leakes recently took to her Instagram page to deny Kim’s suggestion that she had
