Kim Zolciak -- NeNe Leakes Doesn't Call the Shots ... Claudia Jordan's Just Boring (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak isn't about to let NeNe Leakes come off like she's the queen bee of 'RHOA' -- and doesn't believe for a second her nemesis has the power to get anyone canned off the show.

Kim blew up NeNe's spot when we saw her at LAX, and filled her in on Claudia Jordan getting 86'd after one season. She says all the talk about NeNe masterminding the firing doesn't add up for her ... mainly because she made a living off of "double-crossing" Leakes.

The real person Claudia should blame is herself, according to Kim -- but you gotta hear how she puts it. 

And anyone thinking Zolciak might fill the empty roster spot -- think again. Bad blood ain't just for Taylor Swift.
