Kim Zolciak Promotes Spinoff As Bravo Cancels New Reality Show ‘Road To Riches’
Kim Zolciak may not be traveling the Road to Riches with former co-star NeNe Leakes, but the Don’t Be Tardy star says she will return to Bravo in August.
Bravo has decided to cancel the former Atlanta Housewives’ new reality show, NeNe and Kim: Road to Riches, before filming even began, as TMZ reports. The two former co-stars were set to reunite and chronicle a road trip across the country to Los Angeles; however, due to scheduling conflicts, the network has decided to pull the plug on the project.
Before news of the new show’s cancellation hit the web, Kim Zolciak, who is currently filming for the upcoming season of Don’t Be Tardy, took to Twitter to promote her spinoff, which returns to Bravo in August.

Bravo’s announcement in March that the two reality stars would once again team up to do a reality show came as a shock to some fans, as one of the reasons for Kim Zolciak’s departure from the Real Housewives of Atlanta was due to all of the drama with the other Housewives, especially NeNe Leakes. However, Zolciak stated just weeks ago that Road to Riches would be more about repairing the friendship with her former co-star than about any drama between the two, according to Bravo’s Daily Dish.
“People get tired of watching the drama. Like, I love my life, she [NeNe] loves her life, we’ve both been very successful. We’re just going to have fun. It will be good for me to get away, all the kiddos, get a break.”
While the mom of six is keeping mum on exactly what is in store in the upcoming season of Don’t Be Tardy, fans should expect to see Kim Zolciak and husband Kroy Biermann, who wed in 2011, spending some time away from the kids as the two finally take a honeymoon. The reality star recently shared a glimpse into the dream vacation via Instagram.
“We are finally on our ‘honeymoon’ almost four years later, 4 kids later and 5 years of utter bliss! A vacation isn’t really a vacation when you are a mommy/daddy. I have spent more time on FaceTime with my kids than the beach. I miss them so very bad! Hopefully this piña colada will help me to relax.”
NeNe Leakes, who is busy taping ABC’s To Tell The Truth, has yet to comment on the Road to Riches cancellation.
