Was former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak really smoking cigarettes in Atlanta while pregnant with her fifth child? According to the reality star, the pictures that show her sporting a baby bump and smoking aren't recent.

TMZ reports that Zolciak sent a cease and desist letter to the photo agency spreading the pictures that accuses them of purposefully deceiving the public about the images. Though she doesn't remember when specifically they were taken, she does say it was some time ago.

Though she allegedly might sue for defamation, this wouldn't be the first time Zolciak smoked while pregnant. She was reportedly spotted smoking in Florida in May, and pulled the same stunt when she was expecting with her fourth child in 2010. Her defense then was that she didn't know she was pregnant. The lesson here? Don't smoke.
