Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak didn't make the trip to Africa with the rest of the ladies, but that doesn't mean she missed out on any of the drama. Now she is sounding off on her Bravo blog to debunk the proclamations of Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss that she wouldn't have visited Africa, even if she hadn't had a newborn.

"The ladies went to Africa, and because K.J. was so young (2-months-old at the time) and Kroy was away at camp I obviously didn't go," Kim starts off.

Kim also responded to Cynthia and Kandi's statements about not seeing her going to the orphanage and "holding black babies."

"Cynthia and Kandi seemed to think I wouldn't attend the Africa trip because NeNe would stop me and I wouldn't want to hold African children. If Kandi believes I wouldn't go to an African orphanage, then she doesn't truly know me," Kim wrote. "I love children and always have. I love to take care of people, which is why I went to nursing school. 'Germs' have never prevented me from holding a sick child, an adult's hand, or walking into a less than sanitary place. End of story."

As if that weren't enough to prove her point about Kandi's opinion of her being a "germaphobe," Kim also didn't beat around the bush while addressing the issue of race.

"In my eyes children in need are children in need. I have said this before, and I will say it till I die, I DON'T SEE COLOR, not with women, men, children or adults," Kim stated. "What they said was ignorant and rude. I do not need to explain that I am not a racist, because the people who know me know my heart."

And of course it wouldn't be a true Kim rant without taking a stab at her arch-enemy NeNe Leakes.

"NeNe mentioned that I am materialistic and superficial, which I found funny coming from someone who says she is 'very rich.'" Kim wrote. "I love my Louis Vuitton, I love my YSL, and I will STILL die in Dior, but never have I boasted and made displays of my items in hotel rooms. I am very blessed and grateful to have what I have. I never take my things for granted, or the things I've been granted will get taken away."

Kim is obviously not the type to sit there and take things quietly. Let's all hope there's more of Kim Z. in the next episode where she can actually stand up for herself to the other girls' faces.
