Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak has filed legal docs claiming her nemesis in the song world has viciously attacked her … as a shameless publicity ploy to promote her show.

Kim just filed legal docs … asking a judge to toss a lawsuit against her filed by Kandi Burruss … who also appears on RHOA.  Kandi — who was a member of the group Xscape and wrote TLC”s “No Scrubs” — alleges Kim hoarded profits from a song they co-wrote, “Tardy for the Party,” which aired on the show in 2009.

Kim claims in the docs that even Kandi doesn”t believe what she”s alleging, and it”s all just a publicity stunt to get attention for her new show, “The Kandi Factory.”

Kim says Kandi has been amply paid for her musical contribution …  and was actually overpaid to the tune of $6,000.
