Kim Zolciak made many a headline during her dramatic “exit” from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta recently. And with a confirmed Bravo spin-off titled ‘Don’t Be Tardy’ due to air next year, it seemed all but confirmed that the wig lover had left the franchise behind for good.
Or has she?
In a new interview with Hollywood.com, the original cast member sensationally revealed that she could well be back on the show next year:
“If RHOA gets picked up for Season 6, I would consider returning. My priorities were different [this season], but we’ll see what happens.”
Promising fireworks should such an occurrence take place, the 34 year old added:
“I won’t be pregnant! I’ve been pregnant for the last two years. I can handle my own over the five years [of taping the show], but when I’m pregnant I try to keep myself calm because I have another life to take care of. If I’m taping and I’m not pregnant, I’ll be back to my fiery self.”
With Kim’s initial Tweet about leaving the show stressing that it was her “last episode this season”, we were shocked so many took her “departure” at face value. For us, it merely translated as “should my spin-off show bomb, I’ll be back”.
As per our good sis Funky Dineva, the actual cause of friction between Kim and the rest of the cast was the fact that she was getting paid a similar check and doing a fraction of the “work” (see: excuses, no legit “storyline” etc) – behaviour likely due to the season two pick-up of her ‘Don’t Be Tardy’ spin-off.
In any case, the Bravo checks are reportedly sporting many a zero these days, hence should the network deem her return good for ratings, we can’t see Kim, Kroy, and Sweetie turning it down. As for us, we’d entirely welcome it. The Kim/NeNe drama never ceases to serve up the LOL’s.
We’ll be watching how this unfolds.
