Are NeNe Leakes & Kim Zolciak-Biermann Returning To "RHoA" for Season 10?!
There have been rumors swirling these past few months that former cast members NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann would be making their return to "Real Housewives of Atlanta" next season. It appears this might actually come to fruition after reports both ladies are in negotiations with Bravo!

Leakes, 49, and Zolciak-Biermann, 38, have reportedly both been offered deals to return to the reality show for season 10 as full-time cast members. 

TMZ reports: 

Sources close to production tell us Kim and NeNe both have offers on the table from Bravo for Season 10 this Fall, and we’re told the network wants them as full-fledged cast members.

We’re told both women are receptive, but there’s a problem. Kim’s got her own show on Bravo that just started filming … and NeNe’s shooting her own stuff.

We’re told Bravo’s willing to bend if necessary and hire them as part-time cast members, although that’s not ideal. 

We know both want a lot of money, and we don’t know if the 2 sides are far apart.

NeNe is currently working on E!'s "Fashion Police" and Kim stars on her own reality show, "Don't Be Tardy." However, both women may be interested in returning to "RHOA."

Zolciak-Biermann has admitted that she would be open to return to the reality show if there is a big check attached. Photographers caught up to Kim at LAX airport earlier this month and she told photographers, "I'm motivated by money, definitely motivated by money."

Back in September, Leakes revealed that she had turned down an offer from the network to return to "RHOA" for season 9 after attempting to come to an agreement. 

NeNe explains in an interview, "I heard once they couldn't work their deal out with me, they went to Kim Zolciak. When we couldn't work the deal out on me making appearances, then they went to Kim to work the same thing, I suppose. I'm assuming she took it."

Host Jeremy Parsons jokingly told Leakes, "Turn the lights up because the shade is really thick in here!" But, NeNe insisted, "No! I'm just telling you the truth! That is not shade. That is real."

Leakes was asked about her feelings on Zolciak-Biermann returning for the ninth season, she stated, "I think it's going to be really odd. Kim hadn't been around the show for a while. It's going to be odd having Kim back. But I think the fans want to see her though."
Kim and NeNe started out on season one of the show as good friends, but they later had a falling out. After cursing one another out, they said their friendship was over. However, NeNe and Kim later made amends. 

The former co-stars appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" in 2014, revealing that they had kissed and made up. NeNe admitted she regrets telling Kim to "Close her legs to married men!"

Leakes explained, "Kim and I have come so far - those clips were horrible! It's been years and we've just come so far."

The ladies revealed that time helped hear the relationship, blaming their fights on stress while filming and other people getting into their business.
