Prepare to say goodbye, Bravo viewers.

In the latest issue of In Touch Weekly, Kim Zolciak confirms that she is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta, providing readers with the exact date and reason behind the departure.

Kim Zolciak for In Touch

Zolciak will last be seen on the December 2 episode because…

“I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama; I just had to walk. I’ve taken on so much in the past five years, but this was the final straw. My priority was the child inside me.”

What the heck goes down on that installment?

Due to said pregnancy, Zolciak told Cynthia Bailey she could not attend her vow renewal ceremony with Peter Thomas in Anguilla.

From there, "all Hell broke loose," according to Kim and the tabloid.

“They couldn’t understand why I couldn’t go,” said Zolciak, who is now a mother to new baby Kash Kade. “Fighting is what we’re known for, but I’ve never disagreed with a pregnant woman. It’s not one life you’re dealing with, it’s two.”

On the contentious episode, look for Kandi Burruss to claim the group planned the trip around Zociak's availability, and for NeNe Leakes to mock her perpetual rival.

But Kim has no regrets:

“I can’t say it was easy to end that chapter. After all, I met my husband through this show.”
