Just when we thought the ninth season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta was going to be lit thanks to the return of Kim Zolciak-Biermann, we get new stating the opposite. As you may recall, another original Atlanta Housewife, Nene Leakes, stated Kim would be returning to the show. Apparently, and unsurprisingly, Nene was wrong!

Contrary to what’s being said by others, Kim Zolciak won’t be returning to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’
“I heard once they couldn’t work their deal out with me, they went to Kim Zolciak,” NeNe Leakes told People Now earlier this week. “I’m just telling you the truth!”
“When we couldn’t work the deal out on me making appearances, then they went to Kim to work the same thing, I suppose,” NeNe added. “I’m assuming she took it.”
Sources tell TMZ that Kim “has not shot anything for the show, and hasn’t signed on to shoot either … contrary to NeNe’s statement.”
To be fair, Kim’s on the fifth season of her OWN show on Bravo and has no real ties to the Atlanta ladies — except Sheree. We don’t see why she would come back.
This is really disappointing news. Kim’s return would be the highlight of Season 9 in my opinion. We disagree with Love B. Scott stating Sheree Whitfield is her only real tie to the show. This is Atlanta and they all run in the same social circles, she had relationships with Kandi and Phaedra, issues with Cynthia, Kroy has been benched this season, and her show (Don’t Be Tardy) is boring! Season 8 was torturous as the ladies’ seemed to be missing something and Kim Fields was completely out of place. What do you guys think? Are you disappointed Kim will not be returning to the show?
