Original story (4/20/17 at 1:38 p.m. ET):

Rumors have been circulating for months that former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes would rejoin the series for its tenth season.

While NeNe has yet to confirm her return, Kim Z has officially signed on the dotted line and will be back on the Bravo hit next season.


A RHOA production source reveals the mother of six will shoot for the series’ diamond anniversary, but only limitedly.

Producers reportedly wanted her back full time, but obligations for her other show, Don’t Be Tardy, will keep her from shooting regularly, according to TMZ.   


Kenya Moore recently called out Kim over their “Chateau Sheree” argument, saying the 38-year-old created a fake feud in an effort to get back on the show.


Whether or not that was her true intent, it clearly worked!

NeNe has yet to confirm her own return, but reportedly is demanding a higher pay rate than Kim, whatever that number may be.


Show producers figure if the 50-year-old diva signs on full-time, she’d be getting paid more than her on-again, off-again friend anyway, which is the only way they’d agree to cutting a bigger paycheck.


Are you looking forward to seeing Kim Z back on RHOA? Sound off below.
