"It was more of him wanting to take a break, and he wanted me to wait on him," she explained in a recent interview with TooFab. "And I was like, 'I'm not gonna wait on you, dude. You clearly wanna go f--k around. You think I'm stupid? I'm not stupid. I'm not gonna be waiting for you to return. I have a life, too.' He was like, 'In a year, we can date.' I was like, 'Are you insane? No.'"

Brielle and Michael first starting dating in spring 2016, which mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann later confirmed to The Daily Dish. They dated for about two years — and seemed pretty serious about their future together, including even talking about the possibility of marriage — before they ultimately went their separate ways.

Of their breakup, Brielle told TooFab, "It needed to happen. I just was a little in denial because no one's ever left me before. So I was like, 'What the f--k is your problem? You have issues to leave me.' I was so confused at the time. I was like, 'Really? You're really leaving me? Okay, bye!' I was such an ---hole."

What does the romantic future hold for Brielle after Michael? Well, Brielle will take viewers inside her single life when Don't Be Tardy Season 7 kicks off February 17 at 9/8c (Preview above). Here's where we left off with Brielle last season.
