Don't be tardy for the return of Real Housewives of Atlanta!
Production sources told TMZ that Kim has signed on for a limited role in the upcoming season.
The show wanted her back as a full-time cast member, but obligations to her spinoff series Don't Be Tardy restricted her to a part time RHOA role.
This makes the blonde bombshell's soft return a blessing in disguise. If producers can sign NeNe to full-time cast member, she'd get a considerably bigger pay than her part-time P.I.C.
Either way, the (reality) stars are aligning for one EPIC season in the fall!
