Kim Zolciak is officially set for a return to ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
According to TMZ, the reality star – who was an original cast member of the Bravo smash – has inked a deal to appear on its upcoming 10th season.
Citing a production source, the report claims that despite efforts to secure Zolciak in a full-time role, her appearance will be limited due to commitments attached to her own spin-off series ‘Don’t Be Tardy.’
Perhaps as an arc of sorts, the 38-year-old was last seen making a surprise appearance on the finale of the show’s recently wrapped 9th season. She locked horns with Kenya Moore at the grand opening of the now infamous Chateau Sheree.
Kim signing on the dotted line makes for a number of interesting questions. Most of which center on the potential implications for other cast members.
Fellow RHOA original NeNe Leakes has been reportedly courted for a return for the show’s 10th anniversary. Yet, she has gone on record to state that she would have to be making more than frenemy Kim for it to be worth it.
So, with Zolciak effectively on-board as a “Friend Of,” it leaves the coast clear for a full-time comeback for NeNe.
Although the show has been fine, if not better, without her.
If Ms. Leakes does indeed return, will she be snatching a peach (and pay-check) from Phaedra Parks – who rumors claim is on the chopping block? Or will she be added back into the mix in a “more the merrier” capacity?
