Kim Zolciak is returning to the cast of Bravo’s reality TV series Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Zolciak was an original cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s 1st season in 2008.

9 years and dozens of plastic surgery procedures later, Zolciak returns to the cast after leaving for her own reality show, Don’t Be Tardy, in 2012.

Zolciak reportedly began filming scenes for season 10 of RHOA. She’s committed to returning part-time while she works full time on Don’t Be Tardy.

The 38-year-old mother-of-6 admitted she is returning to RHOA part-time for a quick paycheck.

“Everything has a price. I’m just giving it to you straight. Given the right amount of money for anything? Yeah, count me in. I like to work. I have six children to support, so for sure!”

Zolciak left RHOA after season 5 to star in Don’t Be Tardy with her husband, unemployed NFL player Kroy Biermann.

Radar Online reports the couple has fallen on hard times since Biermann, 31, was cut from the Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills.

The show’s producers practically begged Zolciak and original cast member NeNe Leakes to return to boost the show’s sagging ratings. RHOA has seen a 34% drop in ratings since January.

Leakes is also set to return to the cast.

Season 10 premieres on Bravo Network in the fall.

    Damn, all that weave and plastic surgery and she still looks a mess.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Damn just bring back Lisa wu and deshawn snow y u at it

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Their ratings are always up and down though. It’s not like the rantings went from 17M viewers and declined consistently week to week to 2M viewers.

  • klwbaby

    She doesn’t even look ral

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Hold up! She’s allegedly 38? Huh? In dog years maybe. She looks old , I thought she was in her late 40’s early 50’s. YT women age like avocados. All that plastic surgery and she still looks a hot mess.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    The show has run it course. Period. What nene and kim gon do that we ain’t seen?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    So what kroy doing now?? I’m expecting a divorce soon.

  • NeverSurprised

    That woman has more plastic in her than the stock room at the Tupperware factory. She looks ridiculous, like one of those animotronic sex dolls.

  • NeverSurprised

    Naw, they said DeShawn wasn’t ratchet enough for them. You know Miss Andy likes his black women actin’ a fool on the regular, and DeShawn refused to be a party to that buffoonery.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Kroy on the Shannon Brown plan.

  • NeverSurprised

    ??????

  • MsPam

    Miss Andy is the biggest pimp!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Deshawn divorced now things might have changed. Her and Lisa divorced now

  • Ryan

    What in the duck-eyed tranny hell?

  • MsPam

    With all that money she claims to have, how come her hair looks a mess?!?

  • Ryan

    He got cut. Not playing football anymore.

  • NeverSurprised

    Well, I know Lisa would run back in a heartbeat, anything for the limelight. But unless DeShawn is strapped for cash, I cant see her doing it. Especially now that things, IMO, are even uglier than in the past, in terms of the things they say to each other on camera. All of that Kandi/Porsha mess was disturbing.

  • Coy little wink

    Kroy look like he got that work ?

  • Coy little wink

    Lawd….i do not want to hear deshawn pronounce jewelry as jewwrry

  • Coy little wink

    Her wig u mean?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Right but kim ain’t on a Monica plan lol

  • Torae

    Her face looks like it hurts…

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I never noticed she said that. She had her nose high didn’t she tho!??

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I didn’t watch this season I saw lil clips tho too much lesbian shyt going on. Kandi too old for that

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    He classier than Mona tho

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I can’t stand kim she so fake inside and out

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    This “series” has run its course! It screams unauthentic.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Please cancel this show. It is literally a snoozefest.

    And Kim looks like a greasy blow-up doll with absurdly inflated lips. She was lucky she tangled with Kenya’s lame ass because Kim could easily be read for the trailer trash, dick junkie, hammock-screwing, tramp that she actually is. And that wig looks like a bale of hay.

    Anything for a check? HA! She’s worked for much less. After all, she currently holds a P.H.D. in spreading her legs wide open; aside from that, she’s a nobody.

    Her husband looks like a retard with Down’s Syndrome. And he was an awful, lousy footballer so its no wonder the Falcons kicked his hillbilly ass to the curb. And he appears to have a bad body as well.

  • NaeNay

    She keep on, she’s gonna start looking like that human ken doll creep that keeps getting all those plastic surgeries. A sight indeed.
    OT- my neighbor is drunk singing. I can hear him through the walls. Couple more glasses of wine and I think I may join him in a duet.
    G’nite y’all.

  • Ryan

    Hilarious, BEETCH!! ?

  • leapyearpisces

    I’m sorry NaeNay you know I sing loud when that alcohol gets in my system. Nite-Nite. 🙂

    PS: I am singing my Issac Hayes and Barry White tonight, that’s why I sound like a dude. 🙂

  • SaltineCrackers

    I just can’t with the daughter, but train them up I guess.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Hilarious

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Tell em piper I can’t stand her. He ain’t no big papa. He ain’t even been picked up no where. Them residual checks ain’t gon cut it with her and 6 kids

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Lol

  • Dahl

    She does look like a plastic doll, with a black stomach ?

  • LibraGirlonly

    SMDH why in the heck is this fraud joining the crew? I can’t stand to see that pretend face and her daughter is a mini me of her.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I can’t stand either one of them. They both seem like racists.

  • SumthinSweeter

  • 2brefrank

    Her hair looks better than before…

  • 4RGSpot

    Oh, brother. Not this annoying Yamp again along with her now grown-up annoying mini me Yamp daughters. I was so glad when her loud annoying prejudice but left. Now, she’s back??

  • Malcom Flex

    I don’t trust anybody over 30 watching this shit like church I find them immature minded and quick to anger and using silly phrases like bloop or laying hands, and dragging. SO boring.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Oh yeah, no doubt, it has. I think more people still tune into this franchise over any other reality show on Bravo. As long as they have even decent numbers, they’ll be on air for years to come. And you’re right; there’s nothing the other two will do that we haven’t seen in previous seasons.

  • more

    lmaoooo

  • Jessy

    They don’t need her.

  • Shanese

    No one is watching her show so she feels to return? Go away Kim

  • Tammie Reed

    I will say this guys, I read your comments which are hilarious but out of ALL of the Atlanta Housewives, Kim is the realist out of them all! She has always treated me kind through the years since the franchise started here, the other girls NOT so much!

    You don’t know her personally and going by her character on television can be quite deceiving but she is the sweetest lady I have ever met and always invites me out to her events etc. Kim is Kim and there is no judgement here.

    Sometimes people on tv come off different than what you see behind closed doors, just saying. But if she was boring then people would have something to say about that. You noticed the boring ones are usually gone! She makes for great tv though, you have to give her that and I like that she speaks her mind lol. She really is a very kind and giving person. Just my two cents. You know I will tell yah the truth!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Same thing with Kim Fields. She was too classy for that show. Didn’t bring enough mess and drama, so she didnt last long.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    People can hate all they want, but she looks good for a woman who’s had 6 kids.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Even with her subtle racial jabs…she still a good person, Tammie?
    Kim is an opportunist and to be honest, the only race that really accepts her are black people, but I feel like even those who she befriends, she feels she is above them,

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Exactly!! But they will deal with the black people to make money, but in reality feel they are beneath them. Kim and Kroy felt they were too good for the Housewives of ATL…..and felt they deserved their own show. Why did she go to one of the other franchises? Oh, wait those women wouldn’t have her and her brood for all the money in the world.

    This comment is golden!!. Found on a thread on the Field Negro blog:

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    We tried to tell you morons that Trump was too fu@ked-in-the-head to run the government, and we knew you’d ramp up the stupid to try and cover for him because that’s what Republicans always do, but this time you little creeps aren’t gonna slink away and “distance” yourselves from the smoking ruins of the presidency like you did with W. No funny hats and Gadsden flags and newly minted independents who had never even heard of the despicable prick you voted for: This time you’re gonna own the whole fu@king disaster.

    Barely so try again

  • Alicia.Ashe

    This here is facts

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Kim’s face looks awful.

  • Look@m3

    I don’t want to look at this on the show….guess Im really done now.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Preach!! My ex-sister-in-law has 8 kids and she looks great Im talking about snatched waist still a size 6. Everytime she tells people how many kids she has they look at her like they dont believe her…

  • Look@m3

    🙁 Is it ok to watch if there is nothing else to watch and if you have to chose be tween love and hip hop ATL? LOL

  • MzApple

    Her daughter looks sooooo different

  • Jen_no_juice

    If she did it naturally then I could give her props

  • Yoni7

    I’m not a fan of her’s (she’s a TOTAL loudmouth), but she read Kenya for FILTH at Sheree’s housewarming. I like how she stood up to her and didn’t back down, at all.

  • lilred1

    Thx for saying this. People seem to forget so easily how she just ditched the rest of the cast when she got her “rich” redneck.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Train up a child in the way she should h0e

  • Genia

    HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • lilred1

    Puhleeze ? Kim can’t read nobody.. especially not Kenya lol. Kenya verbally twirled on down and around that duck ?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    First she used them to get exposure to catch her “rich” redneck (the only one who would take her serious) and even get a song from one of them, under the guise of friendship and when she had what she wanted—she paid them dust and even stopped filming with them. Now that Kroy ain’t working and nobody cares about her and her brood of unruly tykes…she coming back to the only folks who keep accepting her.

    The only reason she went toe to toe with Kenya, was to gain some traction as the one to “Take Ms. Moore On”, but she isn’t built for the long run.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    After my 4, I had a real live 6-pack…it looked like I worked out everyday and I wore a size 4- which I was able to get back into within a month or less after delivery and with one child I gained 52 pounds. Kim gets no props for a body that got work to get it down to this after childbirth.

  • 100milesperhour

    As long as Kim’s mouth moves, she’s lying. She’s been claiming 30 something since before she met Kroy. She looked at least that age when HW’s 1st started. She’s a middle-aged lying, lazy cow.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Yeah, I don’t think she read her for filth, they both got jabs….they just seemed to focus on Kim’s more…I guess to optimize her return as the one to take Kenya down.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This… Because I see straight through Kandi and Kenya dark aZzes….

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    They all are like that though … Difference she white …? literally …. The biggest opportunist on that show…. Is Kenya demon… And Kandi …. I don’t buy her tears… I see straight through that one… And she has Fawked her on child head up… That child is confused partly because she doing the same thing mama Joyce did to her… Toxic

  • lilred1

    Ok. Im sitting watching looking like: Kim. Now why you start?? We who remember know Kenya plays nice until you start with her. Then she finishes.

  • lilred1

    Lol i just need a gif of Kim with her lips spread looking confused when Kenya takes her down

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I get that they all have issues, but this was about Kim and I get a bit tired of folks always giving her a pass…..especially the ones on the show.

    If she is the realest, then the show would not be able to catch racial jabs, etc. They all have some shyt with them, I would never deny that. Her being white isn’t my issue, her having a black friends isn’t an issue- her acting or seeming like she is better than them and they are beneath her- even Kandi who helped her….that ain’t real.

  • Yoni7

    Ok…FILTH is a stretch. But she stuck with her.

  • Yoni7

    Ok, not filth. But she stood up to her.

  • stav

    I will take that lipo’d tummy anyday!

  • lilred1

    Ok ok she tried bless her heart lol

  • Yoni7

    she looks good for a woman

    I need (college) graduation gift ideas? Please and thanks.

  • Sassypants

    Deshawn was too good for this show. Andy likes mess, even moreso for Atl over the other cities. He’ll find a redemption narrative for (white) cast members of every city except Atlanta. That’s why I stopped watching.

    I am graduating and here are a list of things I would like LOL:

    What’s your budget and what is the relationship?

    I JUST ordered the engraved Leather portfolio. Doesn’t matter the budget, I just need some ideas. Daughter. My one and only.

    Diamond Studs would be nice too. A lifetime memory

    Boooo….shes So wack

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    No, I have not, and I am well aware that reality tv isn’t full reality…however I am not naive enough to think Kim’s slips are scripted slips. I mean she is not real actor, so she can refuse to make those comments.

    Yeah, we both gonna LOL at this : “you know that by now don’t you?” and let it be a funny.

  • stanhope

    Glad she’s back perhaps pwhoresha and fakedra can go now

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    She has too..Kandi not hurting for money..Kenya HAS to up her minstrel show performance to stay show relevant ..

  • stanhope

    Her pimp can get her that

  • cherrypie

    *raises hand slowly* I’m here for it. This show is my guilt pleasure. I work two jobs and I’m in grad school so I don’t get to watch a lot of t.v. but I record this every week and watch it every Sunday night. The show has been a snoozefest the last couple of seasons. Hopefully, Kim will bring IT back to the show and hopefully NeNe will come back too. The more the messier. Lol

  • cherrypie

    I kinda like Porsha but I’m glad Phaedra is leaving. She got on my nerves.

  • Guess Who

    Ugh, just what we need a duck lip, addicted to plastic surgery, photoshop addict who brings absolutely NOTHING interesting to the group.

  • Shanese

    Exactly didn’t Kim say she was above this show and everyone on it when she left? Then her husband gets cut, nobody is watching her show and money is getting tighter to fund her expensive lifestyle so she must return for more checks. But thing is… no one cares about Kim’s life lol so why is she coming back again?

  • AListDiva29

    Did they announce she’s leaving? She for sure needs to have her business practices looked at, she seems very shady!

  • Guess Who

    Congrats on your daughter’s graduation!

    So that’s why she was kicking up her heels at sheree’s party, hmmmm…..kenya wasn’t lying.

  • LibraGirlonly

    She should she spent over a hundred grand to look that way boo.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I’m never ever gonna clap for a white woman over a black one. Not everrrrrrrr.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don’t tune in to the Atlanta Housewives to see a white woman. I watch Beverly Hills for that and Kim can’t touch those ladies either. I don’t wanna watch some washed up white woman that paid thousands to look like a black woman try and shade the REAL Black Queen.

    I’m sooooo tired of watching black women dog bark for white women that will never take up for them.

  • Yoni7

    Yes. But no trips right now.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Never said she the realest but she damn sho better than Kenya….. Kenya is very dark…. I won’t ever vouch for that one… If I had to pick between the two hands down Kim… I want no parts of Kenya energy …. She is the type that will literally have you terminally ill . Or mentally ill one … She has a dangerous energy .. The type that come with a karmic package … Anyone around her is collateral damage literally. Her friends… The people she surround herself with… Before you look up everyone around her is fighting and she sitting there looking beautiful as ever… And more than likely will play the victim… Parasite .. And I’m dead ass serious ….

  • J’aime Sucer

    these examples of black women you’re giving are not common. these are exceptions rather than the norm. I am walking behind two sistas right now who can’t walk. they’re so big that they wobble from side to side as they move.

  • J’aime Sucer

    so it’s black people that are watching her reality tv show? what you talking about ?

  • J’aime Sucer

    if Kim is trying to look black, then who are the black women on the show trying to look like with non-African weaves. These are not black queens

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

  • AcutallyReally

    When she married Kroy or whatever his name is, she thought she was too good for the show and the black people she’d been riding to fame and fortune. Now old boy lost his job and they must have canceled their wack show so she’s back. Glad I gave up this horrible show but if I did still watch I’d boycott if she came back on.
