Bravo has officially offered Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes deals to return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for season 10, new rumours suggest.

Months ago, it was reported that Bravo wanted both Kim and Nene to return to RHOA next year and it now looks like that may be happening. According to TMZ, Bravo has officially put offers on the table for the two originals to make a big-time comeback.

Sources close to the production of RHOA tell the gossip website that the offers are on the table and that Bravo wants them both back as full-time Housewives. Negotiations could hit a snag, however, as Kim really enjoys filming her own spinoff show and Nene has been working her other jobs. The network is reportedly fine with bringing them back in a part-time role but is more excited about a full-time return.

The other issue with Kim and Nene’s return is money. Previously, rumours surfaced that the rest of the RHOA cast were worried about the two returning because that means smaller salaries for the rest of them. This season, Kandi Burruss is reportedly raking in almost $2 million to partake in the drama and a big chunk of that could be cut if the two are brought back.

This news may also explain why rumours of Cynthia Bailey being fired surfaced — and then were quickly denied by the network — yesterday.

We’ve never been big fans of Kim but Nene is much-needed on the show, at this point. She consistently brings the drama and love her or hate her, she is RHOA. Sources have been telling TV Deets exclusively for months that the network is desperate to bring her back to the show in a full-time role.
