Kim Zolciak is returning to Bravo, and to her once strained friendship with NeNe Leakes. However, she’s not coming back to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Instead, the on-again friends will soon start production on their very own Bravo spinoff.
“IT’S OFFICIAL!!! Kim Zolciak Biermann and I have our own spin off show only on #BRAVO!” Leakes announced to fans on her blog on March 30.
“We announced it today in New York City with our entire Bravo & True Entertainment family. Thank you for believing in us! we are about to hit The Road To Riches!”
News of a possible Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes show first hit the web in late February. At the time, LALATE claimed Leakes would be a producer on the series.
Kim Zolciak was close with Leakes for years on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but eventually, after a few seasons, the two women had a falling out. For years, they didn’t speak and kept their distance on the show. Then, recently, they made amends, and have been close ever since.
While Leakes didn’t reveal details of her and Kim Zolciak’s new series on her blog, E! News explained more about the show, which will be titled NeNe And Kim: The Road To Riches.
“Atlanta’s ‘most driven’ housewives…drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure. The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy.”
Also on Monday, Bravo announced Manzo’d With Children, Ladies of London and Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles had been renewed, and revealed two additional spinoffs of their successful franchises, Married to Medicine Houston and Below Deck Mediterranean.
“We are excited to launch these new unscripted and scripted series and believe the new slate will deliver the same high-quality and viewing benefits, but with a broader lens to drive even more ‘affluencers’ to view as well as engage socially.”
Kim Zolciak left The Real Housewives of Atlanta years ago in lieu of her own Bravo spinoff, titled Don’t Be Tardy. The show was an instant hit, and continues to be a success for Bravo. In fact, the show is expected to return to Bravo later this year. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Don’t Be Tardy was renewed for a fourth season earlier this month.
AJC was first to announce news of Kim Zolciak’s fourth season of Don’t Be Tardy.
