Things a-changin’ for the 9th season cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta — and All About the Tea has exclusive tea to spill!
A source tells AllAboutTheTea.com that Kim Zolciak-Biermann, is in talks with Bravo to rejoin RHOA, after exiting the show in a huff, during Season 5.
“Bravo is considering bringing Kim back for the new season,” the source said. ” Production has her filming scenes with Sheree [Whitfield] and other cast members to see how she fits with the ladies.”
Kim and her teen daughters, Brielle and Ariana Biermann, attended Sheree Whitfield’s son’s birthday party in July (pictured below). The event was captured by Bravo cameras.
When Kim last appeared on the show, she was pregnant with her fourth child, Kash. Bravo reality turned ugly, when her costars questioned her commitment to friendships, because of Kim’s refusal to participate in cast trips and events. As an extra trashy parting shot to RHOA, Kim attacked and assaulted a cameraman, upon her exit. She went on to star in her own reality series, “Don’t Be Tardy,” which is set to debut it’s fifth season, in September. Kim explained her dramatic departure from the show, in her Bravo blog.
” …these women are NOT my friends.”
“Bravo and RHOA have been beyond good to me, and I will be forever grateful for some of the moments that occurred on the show, but I couldn’t deal anymore. “
Since her breakaway, Kim has made an effort to make amends with a few of the women — but why the sudden change of heart? According to an insider, Kim allegedly needs the paycheck.
“Kim has become the main breadwinner in the family, since Kroy was released from the Atlanta Falcons,” the source dished. “So Kim is pedaling her skincare line and looking for money-making opportunities. She has 6 kids and an extravagant lifestyle to support.”
Although their gal-pal breakup was one of the nastiest in Bravo history, NeNe Leakes and Kim have seemingly reconciled. In March, Kim tweeted her desire to return to RHOA and stir up “trouble,” with Leakes.

Kim may have missed her shot, because as reported, the ninth season of the Atlanta franchise began filming in June, and NeNe has been noticeably missing from revealed on-set photos and videos. NeNe finally confirmed that she’s not returning for the upcoming season, in response to a curious tweeter.
“So does that mean you’re back next season?” the tweet reads.
NeNe responded, “No, but to no fault of mine.”

So who will cooperate with Kim’s triumphant comeback, and film with her? Kim’s abrupt Season 5 departure left her in mid-feud status with Kandi Burruss, after a legal tangle surrounding profits from the sales of the song, “Tardy for the Party,” destroyed their friendship. Phaedra Parks represented Burruss, who penned the song, in the case against Zolciak-Biermann.
At this time, it’s not confirmed if Kim will return to RHOA as a full-time housewife or in a ‘friend of housewife’ status. Stay tuned.
