The last time Real Housewives of Atlanta fans saw NeNe Leakes with Kim Zolciak was the Season 10 reunion. Pretty much the whole cast was against Kim. Even Andy Cohen told her that she brought “nothing positive” to RHOA that season. In the backstage footage, Kim even declared that “racism isn’t all that real.” And we all cringed in unison.
Later, Kim and NeNe confirmed that they were in touch and on better terms. Kim checked in while Gregg Leakes battled cancer. And now, these two are still cool, believe it or not. So does this mean Kim might come back to RHOA whenever they start filming Season 13? Believe it or not, NeNe would be down, but she doesn’t think the others would be on board.
The last time we saw NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak together on Real Housewives of Atlanta, they were battling it out on the Season 10 reunion. Things were so bad that NeNe and Kenya Moore were actually on the same side during that taping.
However, things have changed since then. NeNe and Kim shared that they reconnected during Gregg Leakes‘ cancer battle and that they texted here and there. It seems like these two only get along when they’re not filming, but I am always down for a Housewife comeback. Maybe Kim will show up to an event next season. She always brings the drama. I’m here for it. And so is NeNe.
Dont Be Tardy’s Kim Zolciak is a mother of six. Which means she is most likely constantly on her toes to make sure they stay safe.
And while bumps and bruises are par for the course with having kids, it’s important to do what we can to keep them from any serious harm. Recently, Kim’s family had an experience that turned into a PSA for the rest of us.
Whether you think Lisa Vanderpump is the queen of reality TV or the best chess player since Bobby Fisher, you have to admit that she has a strong following. In all honesty, she might have the most loyal fandom out of all of the Real Housewives. Her biggest Stans support everything she does from her TV appearances to her restaurants to her charitable endeavors. Some of them even go all in to call out Lisa’s (perceived) enemies on social media, blowing up Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Kyle Richards‘ mentions whenever they slip up.
Basically, LVP is the influencer of all influencers, whether you love her or loathe her. And, let’s be honest, a lot of reality TV viewers do love her. She was a big part of the glamour that initially drew in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers. She has the most successful Real Housewives spin-off show, with Vanderpump Rules approaching its eighth season. Sorry, Kim Zolciak, Don’t Be Tardy isn’t the most exciting show on TV. She wasn’t even on half of RHOBH Season 9, yet she dominated the conversations during the season, the reunion taping… and in interviews and on social media.
Turning 18 is a milestone for most teens. They can vote, get their driver’s license (depending on the state laws, of course), go off to war, start college, and… get their lips done. Wait. What? That wasn’t on your list of milestones? Mine neither.
Well, Kim Zolciak recently revealed that it was on her daughter Ariana Biermann’s. Of course, doing this is totally her prerogative. It’s just not a typical rite of passage for teens. Then again, this is the norm on Don’t Be Tardy.
Jeana Keough has been wearing the same hairstyle since the eighties, but that doesn’t mean her head isn’t full of great ideas! Jeana was, of course, present at Bravo Con this past weekend. People who couldn’t attend the way overpriced convention were able to catch Jeana on the Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen stage for a hot second this past Sunday. I mean it when I say that I admire Jeana for amping her face up a bit, and keeping that hair. Hot roller bangs forever!
Was anyone else beyond excited to catch WWHL last Sunday? You could feel Andy’s excitement and it was like he read my mind by closing out the show with Kim Zolciak Biermann’s Don’t Be Tardy. Anyways, for those who watched, you know we really didn’t get to hear much from the Real Housewives of Orange County on stage. There were so many people in attendance, so many Bravolebrities, that the interviews had little info. That doesn’t mean that Jeana was quiet. In fact, she shared some amazing ideas in interviews at the convention.
These days, NeNe Leakes talks about how much money she has almost as much as she shades Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey while pretending to be unbothered by their existence. However, that wasn’t always the case. During the beginning seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes was the breadwinner in their relationship. However, that changed when RHOA’s popularity skyrocketed. NeNe’s one-liners and her feuds with Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield gave her a lot of notoriety…. and the paycheck to buy much better wigs. Well, sometimes anyway. We all know that wig selection isn’t exactly NeNe’s biggest strength, no matter how high her budget is.
Anyway, in a recent interview, NeNe spilled some of the details about the start of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I will never forget Kim texting NeNe “you are a low budget bitch” back in Season 1. But, you know what: Kim wasn’t too far off about the financial situation. The salaries on the show were not nearly as high as they are today.
The true origin of the Kim Zolciak and Kenya Moore feud is just so unclear. Kim left Real Housewives of Atlanta in the middle of Kenya’s first season. Then, she reappeared at the Chateau Sheree housewarming party and confronted Kenya for going into the still-unfinished basement. Kenya told her she looked like a duck because of her plumped-up lips, which was a fair comparison in all honesty.
The next season, things really came to a head at NeNe Leakes‘ white party. The partygoers all looked angelic in their all-white outfits, but Kenya and Kim did not behave like angels. At all. Kim questioned the legitimacy of Kenya’s then-secret marriage to Marc Daly. Then, Kenya accused Kim of pimping out her daughter Brielle Biermann for John Legend tickets. Never forget that now-deleted tweet Brielle supposedly wrote from Kim’s account asking Chrissy Teigen who Brielle has to “blow” for concert tickets. Kenya and NeNe were actually on the same side (for once) when they put Kim in her place during the Season 10 RHOA reunion. You remember that one, right? Andy Cohen told Kim that she brought “nothing positive” to the show and Kim said that racism wasn’t real. That was the end of Kim’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta, for now anyway. However, that hasn’t stopped her from commenting on the show’s cast members.
