Kim Zolciak Is Returning To 'RHOA' & She's Making Her Role On The Show Very Clear
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is adding yet another familiar face. Kim Zolciak is returning to RHOA, she confirmed on Instagram Tuesday. "FINALLLY! After many months of negotiations, I'm happy and excited to confirm that as of today my deal is done!" She continued, "I'm coming to play with the ladies over at RHOA." This surely is exciting news for fans of the Bravolebrity — and her huge family.
Zolciak also clarified her exact status in Season 10 with some handy hashtags. As she explained,
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 b*tches! #CANTWAIT #2ShowsSameNetwork #Blessed #SeeUAtLeastHalfTheSeason #MoreThenAFriendLessThanFulltime
Hmm.. so she isn't a full-time Housewife, but she isn't a Friend, either. That sure is interesting, because usually if someone isn't on the show in a full-time capacity, then she is considered a Friend. However, according to Zolciak, that is not the case for herself, since she says she's "more than a friend" and will be seen "at least half of the season."
Regardless of the logistics, the fact remains Zolciak will once again be seen on RHOA five years after she announced her departure. Furthermore, the 39-year-old's supporters can continue to watch her on Don't Be Tardy, which was renewed for Season 6 in April.
Based on her caption, Zolciak makes it sound like she had to choose between RHOA and her spinoff, if she wanted to hold a peach and be a full-time Housewife. It could be that Zolciak was simply too busy. Bustle has reached out to Bravo for comment on if the network played a role in this, but has not yet received a response.
Either way, props to Zolciak for being a boss and now appearing on two Bravo series.
Like Zolciak, NeNe Leakes is also making her triumphant return for Season 10. In a statement released to Bravo's The Daily Dish in June, Leakes said,
"I don't think I go anywhere and don't get asked the question, 'When are you coming back to Housewives?' Or I get fans coming up to me saying, 'I really miss seeing you on the show.' I'm told this daily. My fans have supported me all these years, and it started to feel like I was disappointing them ... I just want to be the person to finally say to my fans who have supported me for so many years... I'm back and ready for season 10. Let the shade begin, hunni!"
It's unclear if she'll be making bloops full-time or as just a Friend.
Let's take a minute to imagine Leakes and Zolciak ruling this milestone season of RHOA. Yeah, it's already shaping up to be an exciting one.
