No Wigs & Cigs?
Fans are outraged at the confirmed report that Real Housewives of Atlanta veteran, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, will make an encore appearance in season 10 as a part-time cast member.
Kim infamously stormed off the set and out of the lives of RHOA viewers in season 5. She supposedly left the “toxic,” show to move on to bigger (?) and better (?) things — that included her own spin-off show, Don’t Be Tardy.
Well her grand return is being threatened by protesters — who have filed a complaint on Change.org. The following official petition was filed to get Kim, her unemployed husband Kroy Biermann, and their football-team-sized family blocked from returning to the show:
“Kim Zolziak left Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) at the beginning of Season 5. She allegedly refused to film with the cast. She also allegedly made racist comments (e.g. using the N word, said Kandi Burruss lives in the ghetto, disparaging comments about dark skin, etc.) about her cast mates and intimated that she was better than the show. Allegedly her financial condition has changed and she now needs to supplement her income and she is trying to come back on the show. After her departure from RHOA, the ratings soared and the show became the highest rated show on the BRAVO network. Kim was given her spinoff show, “Don’t Be Tardy.” In Season 1 the weekly viewership averaged 1.6M and each season thereafter the viewership has steadily declined dipping at or below 1M viewers. Conversely RHOA averages over 2.5M viewers a week. Adding Kim back to RHOA will cause the ratings to decline and adversely affect the show’s success and popularity. BRAVO and Andy Cohen we respectively ask that you do not add Kim back to the cast in order to ensure the success of RHOA.”
Well, okay. So what do you think about this petition? Tell us your thoughts. Sound off in the comments.
