UPDATE (7/18/17 at 4:55 p.m. ET):
It's finally official! Kim Zolciak will be re-joining the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 10!
She won't, however, be billed as a full-time cast member, as she's chosen to continue shooting her own show, Don't Be Tardy, simultaneously.
FINALLLY! After many months of negotiations, I'm happy and excited to confirm that as of today my deal is done! I'm coming to play with the ladies over at RHOA. However, since you all have made my OWN show such a huge success, I've decided to continue to carry that instead of carrying a peach! See you soon bitches! #CANTWAIT #2ShowsSameNetwork #Blessed #SeeUAtLeastHalfTheSeason #MoreThenAFriendLessThanFulltime

Original story (4/20/17 at 1:38 p.m. ET):
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.
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.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 9 Reunion airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
