It looks like Sweetie Hughes’ Hattie McDaniel-Gone-With-the-Wind role of being lashed by Kim Zolciak’s wigs on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has come to a merciful conclusion. It’s been confirmed that Hughes was fired as Zolciak’s assistant after a 13-year “friendship.”
Zolciak, the bumbling blond bubblehead and toothless shark on the repelling “Real Housewives of Atlanta” unceremoniously dismissed Hughes while in the process of moving into their mansion in suburban Atlanta. The person who confirmed was Zolciak’s daughter, Brielle, via Twitter.
The only statement that Brielle proffered for the ouster was that it was a “long story.”
In sneak peeks at the upcoming season of the Un-“Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Zolciak can, once again, be heard yelling at Mamie Sweetie with blowtorch intensity, which drew the ire of fellow cast mate NeNe Leakes.
During the third season, a volcanic Leakes nearly peeled back Zolciak’s fake wig and punctured her silicone implants for the uncouth way Zolciak used to speak to and treat Sweetie. In fact, Zolciak’s consistently skank behavior towards Hughes motivated radio personality Rickey Smiley to draw up an unofficial petition seeking Hughes’ emancipation from Zolciak.
Hughes, however, expressed on more than one occasion that she didn’t object to the way Zolciak treated her. She did voice her great displeasure at the way Leakes’ portrayal of their relationship impacted her.
“Kim’s a great friend to me. NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it,” Sweetie told Life & Style magazine last February.
Leakes called Zolciak and Hughes’ working relationship as a master-and-slave arrangement.
Of course, “RHOA” fans presumed that Sweetie would get more TV face time on Zolciak’s new reality show based on her life with new hubby, Kroy Biermann, their new son and Kim’s two daughters. But Zolciak tossed Hughes onto the trash heap, where the rest of Blondie’s wigs are.
Brielle would only add that Sweetie has been “fired.”
