Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes The Road to Riches

Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes were supposed to have a spinoff about road-tripping and ego-tripping together, but with the demanding schedules of the equally demanding stars, Bravo pulled the plug on the planned Road To Riches. Sadly.

The two former-ish Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars aren’t ready to let their road-tripping dreams die just yet. Kim and NeNe are reportedly “back in talks” with Bravo to give their show another shot.

Kim and NeNe are aiming for something a little more highbrow rather than the original ‘The Simple Life For Cougars’ plan and want some changes to the original concept. The new idea is for Kim and NeNe to embark upon an “Oprah/Gayle King-type journey.” 

Apparently, Kim and NeNe will work on their friendship, while also confronting other obstacles (Kim’s plastic surgery obsession!?), as they journey both physically and spiritually. Sounds um… intriguing, actually.  

Kim told TMZ that “maybe” the show is back on, but both she and NeNe are interested in going forward. Maybe they could even get Sheree Whitfield on-board.

The main issue, still remains, however: The schedule! Kim doesn’t want to be away from her kids *ha* for long periods of time, and is currently busy filming Don’t Be Tardy. Meanwhile, NeNe has several other projects in the works, including her comedy tour, some acting gigs, the premiere of her gameshow pilot for ABC, along with Fashion Police, so it will be difficult to take a long break. 

A source insists both ladies are very serious about moving the project forward and are “close to wrapping their other projects” in order to convince Bravo they’re ready for the open road.

Hmmm… I feel like NeNe would make this happen, but Kim is notoriously flaky! Remember her ‘motivational speaking tour‘? Or ‘singing’ career? Or wig collection?! Kim was reportedly the main problem with making the show work the first time Bravo attempted. 

Seriously – how could all that ego and all those wigs fit in one tour bus? Even Oprah is less high-maintenance!
