That road trip's definitely not going anywhere now…

Kim Zolciak-Biermann and NeNe Leakes are two of the biggest names to come out of the Real Housewives franchise, and they both happen to be from the same exact city.

Unfortunately for the reality TV vets, that's about all they have in common… because they just cannot find a way to get along even after all these years!

Despite reports that Kim and NeNe's joint road trip spin-off was given a SECOND greenlight earlier this year, the I Dream of NeNe star started a completely new rumor this week when she let it slip that her RHOA rival was returning to Atlanta next season.

While we didn't quite believe her since Season Five of Don't Be Tardyliterally starts this coming Wednesday, sources close to Kim confirmed our suspicions on Friday denying any involvement with the Bravo docuseries to TMZ.

With that said, we are hearing that Brielle and Ariana Biermann will be featured in Season Nine next year since they both attended Shereé Whitfield's son's birthday party — so at least there's that!

Plus, if anything, NeNe would definitely be the first one to show up… just like she did last season.

Who do U want to see return to Real Housewives of Atlanta??

We NEED this to happen!

On Thursday, NeNe Leakes dropped some major Real Housewives of Atlanta casting news while hosting an episode of The Fashion Police.

As we previously reported, Ms. Leakes turned down an offer to return to RHOA following lengthy negotiations with Andy Cohen. Apparently the reality star rejected the opportunity because she's too busy dodging her taxes with other projects.

According to the rich b*tch, producers then approached RHOA alum Kim Zolciak-Biermann to negotiate a deal. It's hilarious how Ms. Leakes made sure to mention that Bravo approached HER first — this frenemy relationship is still going strong!

NeNe went on to explain:

NeNe Leakes Gets Slapped With An Overdue Tax Bill To The Tune Of $824K!

Another day, another celebrity who didn't pay their taxes.

In an exclusive Daily Mail report, court docs reveal Nene Leakes owes a whopping $824K in backed federal taxes stemming from 2014.

Wait… didn't Ms. Leakes once refer to herself as a rich b*tch?!

Unfortunately for NeNe, her assets will be seized if she doesn't pay her MASSIVE bill. The reality star first received the bad news on July 22.

To make matters even more crazy, the Real Housewives alum JUST bought a massive $2 million dollar Atlanta home last year. Why would the momma drop the cash for this new mansion if she couldn't pay her taxes?!

Considering the 48-year-old just starred in a Broadway show in addition to launching The NeNe Leakes Collection on the Home Shopping Network, we hope she'll pony up the dough to Uncle Sam. NeNe doesn't really have an excuse at this point!

So, do YOU think Leakes will pay her taxes?

'Ramona Singer' Stops By The DNC To Play Real Housewives Or Donald Trump On Watch What Happens Live!

The fact this game is actually difficult is a terrible sign for our country…

Since Donald Trump was a reality TV star before he decided to try his hand at ruining running America, it shouldn't be that surprising that he has a lot in common with the Real Housewives.

That's because in addition to employing a few of the Bravolebrities on Celebrity Apprentice throughout the years — Brandi Glanville, Teresa Giudice, NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, Lisa Rinna, and Claudia Jordan — the GOP Presidential nominee even sounds like them sometimes!

In fact, the politician has so many insane quotes under his belt… it's practically impossible to tell what he actually said and what's just a Real Housewives line!

Luckily, Watch What Happens Live! correspondent Amy Phillips put on her best Ramona Singer wig to attend the DNC on Wednesday to see if anyone else could tell the difference so that we didn't have to — Hint: they could not.

Plus, who doesn't love a random cameo from The Bachelor's Chris Soules??

Girl, hi!

Now that both NeNe Leakes and Kim Fields have officially left Real Housewives of Atlanta for greener pastures, it's about time for a fresh face to make its way into town.

Luckily, we're hearing Bravo has already found their replacement for the RHOA OG… Lena Chenier!!!

But not only is the social media fashionista totally adorable, she already has some ties to current 'wives!

According to Straight From The A who broke the casting news, Lena and Kandi Burruss are friends IRL through the music industry since the newbie's fiancé is none other than R.L. Huggar from the '90s boy band Next.

But it gets better… R.L. actually has a rocky history with Cynthia Bailey's soon-to-be ex-husband Peter Thomas after the musician reportedly lost $10,000 when he backed the businessman's failed restaurant Bar One – he even filed a lawsuit!

Apparently, Lena was one of the finalists for the open spot on the hit docuseries, and after getting along with the girls at Porsha Williams' birthday party last month, producers officially made her real.

Ain't she just a peach?!

Make sure to catch Lena Chenier's debut when RHOA premieres this November on Bravo!

NeNe Leakes Reportedly Leaves Real Housewives For Real This Time!

The bloop is real!

When it was first announced that NeNe Leakes had quit Real Housewives of Atlanta ahead of Season 8, we were skeptical that she'd actually follow through with her exit.

Obviously, fans of the Bravo docuseries saw that NeNe did in fact pop up as a guest during their cast trip to Jamaica… but it sounds like that may be the last time RHOA ever sees its queen.

That's because it was reported on Monday afternoon that the reality TV icon will not be a part of Season 9 in any capacity, let alone as a friend or permanent housewife!

According to TMZ, the 48-year-old Bravolebrity wants to focus on her other business ventures at this point in her life… but we're hearing she can still come back if producers promise to pay her enough/cast another wet blanket like Kim Fields and need some drama.

Fun Fact: NeNe's departure leaves only Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson, Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Teresa Giudice, and Jacqueline Laurita as active OGs for their respective cities!

Will U miss NeNe Leakes when RHOA returns for Season 9 this November on Bravo??
