Kim Zolciak Returns to Real Housewives of Atlanta for NeNe Leakes

It’s been confirmed that Kim Zolciak has signed on to rejoin the cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Kim Zolciak Returns to Real Housewives of Atlanta for NeNe Leakes

CelebNReality247.com reports that Kim Zolciak’s frenemy Nene Leakes pushed hard to bring Kim back on the show.

A production insider explained:

Nene asked to bring Kim back. She’s trying to build a coalition, against Porsha, Cynthia, and Kandi – whom she regards as her enemies.

He continued:

Nene considers Kim a loyal friend – like Marlo – and wants her win her coalition.

It’s a surprising turn in the relationship between Kim and Nene Leakes. The two ladies friendship seemed officially over after The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion – when Nene suggested that Kim was a racist.

Kim Zolciak reportedly reached out to Nene, after learning that Nene’s husband, Gregg Leakes, had been diagnosed with cancer. Nene explained how it happened on Andy Cohen’s WWHL last year:

When my husband and I announced that he had cancer, Kim reached out. We had a conversation, and she sent over some gifts for Gregg. Very nice. And she kept following up, too. She kept texting me.

On the same show, Nene explained that she and Kim could be friends again, saying:

I’m just not a hateful person, and I know how to forgive. I want to move on. So I feel like the ball is in her court because I’m very open with being cool and going out for a drink. Girl, call me.

It sounds like the new season will be drama filled especially now with Kim back in action and on NeNe’s side.

All the other housewives better look out!
