Kim Zolciak took to her Inst Stories to reference a bad situation.
The 45-year-old Bravo veteran is in the process of divorcing her husband of 11 years, former footballer Kroy Biermann.
The split turned very nasty, with her being accused of gambling and him being accused of smoking too much marijuana.
Kim – who sells her wigs – was clearly venting when she took to social media on Thursday.
“Manipulation is when they blame you for your reaction to their toxic behavior,” reads the quote she shared, “but never discuss their disrespect that triggered you.”
Kim then asked fans to “READ THIS AGAIN”. She did not name Kroy, 37.

Kim and Kroy shocked the world in early May when they announced they had separated after 11 years of marriage. Their separation date was April 30.
Kim and Kroy share sons Kroy Jagger, 11, Kash Kade, 10, and twins Kaia Rose and Kane Ren, 9. Kroy also legally adopted Kim’s oldest children, Brielle, 26, and Ariana, 21.
Kim is also asking for child support from the former NFL player, as well as a legal return to her maiden name.
For some reason, last week she was showing off her wedding bling.
The Bravo star was seen in a skin-tight, semi-sheer black mini dress with her white blonde hair as she celebrated her 45th birthday with some friends.
The viewer didn’t look stressed at all about his divorce.
Instead, the Real Housewives of Atlanta veteran smiled and laughed with her friends, including Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo, 55, in images she shared to her Insta Stories.

The Dancing With the Stars alum and former NFL player had a famous whirlwind romance, getting engaged and conceiving their first child within three months of meeting in May 2010.
The couple went on to welcome three more children together, with every high and low of their steamy romance documented for the cameras of the hit reality show Don’t Be Tardy.
Together they have thrived on their racy sex life, started businesses and battled numerous financial troubles, culminating in the couple owing the IRS $1.1 million in unpaid taxes.
Zolciak still lives with Biermann in their Georgia home, even after the divorce filing, but the exes are “avoiding each other,” a source told Us Weekly.
During this time she two older daughters, Brielle, 26, and Ariana, 21, helped her celebrate her birthday on social media.
Ariana posted an image of herself with her mom in a bathing suit captioned, “Happy birthday to my best friend.” The sexiest mom!!!! @kimzolciakbiermann.’

Ariana also shared a photo of her and Kim posing on the shore with their legs crossed, captioned: “You are the strongest women I know!!! Thank you for all you do! I am so proud of you mum!’
Brielle also posted a love message to her own Instagram story to celebrate Kim’s birthday. ‘Happy Birthday Mom!! I love you so much,” Brielle wrote.
Brielle is Kim’s eldest daughter and her biological father has never been revealed, while Ariana’s father is Kim’s ex-husband Daniel Toce.
Two years after Kim and Kroy married in 2011, the former NFL player adopted Zolciak’s two daughters.
Kim also shared a short birthday video on Instagram of herself sitting around a table with friends as she blew out a candle.
These days, Kim and Kroy still live together, even though she accused him of smoking too much weed and he claimed she had a gambling addiction, according to TMZ.
“It’s a big house,” the source added. Their four children Kroy Jagger (KJ), 11, Kash, 10, and twins Kaia and Kane, nine, are also at the mansion.
The shared home went into “foreclosure” in February, according to TMZ, but they haven’t moved.
Kim reportedly listed the date of their split as April 30 and said the marriage was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation,” the outlet noted.

The star is asking for sole physical custody, spousal support and have her maiden name legally reinstated.
However, Kroy also filed for divorce, seeking sole physical custody, sole legal custody and possession of the home, with Kim being asked to vacate the property, according to TMZ.
The TV personality and former professional NFL player originally purchased the home for $880,000 in 2012.
Their ownership now costs between $2.5 million and $2.6 million, depending on the outlet.
The lavish estate has been featured on both The Real Housewives and Kim’s own reality show Don’t Be Tardy, which aired for a total of eight seasons.
The reason for their separation seems to be mainly their financial problems, according to a source of People.
The insider revealed that Kim had been planning to split from Kroy for “a long time” and hadn’t told her family or friends.
“Money has been a huge issue. The million dollar tax (payment) was just too much of a strain on them,’ the source said.
It was also added: “There is no cheating on either side. Money had a lot to do with the split, but there were other factors. He has been managing (the family) for a long time , so he technically had a job. They’re not on good terms right now.
