In the beginning seasons of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” we witnessed the rollercoaster ride of a friendship between Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak. Unfortunately with Kim leaving the show and Nene embarking on additional ventures, we no longer had the front row access to watching their drama unfold. Hopes that our withdrawal would come to an end with a spin-off show were shut down months ago, but it seems like the two friends are unwilling to let this go as they are trying their best to work through the kinks that have been preventing them from taking off with their wonderful idea.
A little over a year ago, it was announced that Leakes and Zolciak had received their own reality television show. The show, which was entitled “Road to Riches,” was to document the frenemies as they took a road trip across the country, experiencing the world and hashing out the differences that had once caused a rift in their relationship. However, due to scheduling conflicts, the show was cancelled prior to any filming had begun. Leakes was slated to begin shooting for a talk show amongst occasional appearances on E!s “Fashion Police” while Kim would continue working on Bravo’s “Don’t Be Tardy.”
With both of their projects nearing an end, the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestants have been meeting with executives at Bravo to display their commitment to the show and hopefully come to an agreement regarding the concept and scheduling. While the title of the show is subject to change, the road trip concept will remain. The main issue is trying to work with Kim, who, accustomed to filming with her family does not desire to be away from them.
As of the now, it is uncertain whether the show will actually happen. No word has been heard from Nene Leakes but when TMZ asked Kim Zolciak, she teased us with a “maybe.” Only time will tell. Stay tuned!
