NeNe and Kim Road to Riches RHOA

All About The Money! Frememies and former Bravo costars are teaming up for a new reality show. Bravo announced today that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, NeNe Leakes and Don’t Be Tardy” star, Kim Zolciak will join forces for a brand new reality show on their network.

The Bravo Upfronts presentation is taking place today and a special announcement was made: A new reality show starring present and former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak will launch on the network. 

“NeNe and Kim are going to anchor a new Bravo reality show together– and the two are hitting the road! That’s right, the new series will follow the two (often dueling) divas as they travel from Atlanta to Los Angeles.”

According to the Bravo press release, the show will center around a gal pal road trip with drama of course,

“Atlanta’s ‘most driven’ housewives– NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann— drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure. The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy.”

NeNe and Kim surprised everyone by showing up to Bravo’s Upfronts together. The working title for the show is “NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches” and no official air date has been announced.

Nene announced the news via her Instagram account with the following post with the caption, “IT’S OFFICIALLY @kimzolciakbiermann and I have our own spin-off show only on #BRAVO! We announced it today in New York City with our entire Bravo & True Entertainment family. Thank you for believing in us we are about to hit The Road To Riches”

    • hardtimz

      lol I like…

  • DSS

    Hopefully this is bravo giving her a graceful exit from Real Housewives

    • hardtimz

      Both or Clydesdale?

    • fred

      send her to the gluefactory

  • Sophia Z.

    If you are likely to watch this, please upvote this comment. IMO not many will watch this hot mess duo.

    • I suspect you won’t get many upvotes. LOLOL! 🙂

      Hi Sophia! 🙂

      • Sophia Z.

        Hi there! I hope you are doing well. 😉
        I know I won’t get any votes. That’s the point. LOL. xox

        • Hahahaha! Love your sense of humor.

      • hardtimz

        Guess I’m wrong as well didn’t think would want to watch….what’s the T.V. coming to….yikes!

        • Down the tubes!!!

          • hardtimz

            LOL for sure, when there’s a need to continue digging at the bottom of the barrel for these two clowns as entertainment!!!

  • Brattus Rattus

    Sounds like the Bad Girls Club Road Trip they did years back but with two grown women who will be getting paid way too much money to be completely inappropriate.

  • hardtimz

    I can not believe people are going to watch those two clowns….I CAN’T WAIT TO MISS IT!!!!

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      You said it all!

  • hardtimz

    PS someone please tell Wig to put those damn platforms away…way away!

    • Sophia Z.

      It just goes to show you that money can’t buy you refinement.

      • hardtimz

        LMAO…it sure can’t! I can’t with these two…I can’t!

        • Sophia Z.

          I’m with you on that. Though I have seen some recent photos of Nene and at least she can show that she is capable of presenting herself on the outside as tasteful at times.

          • hardtimz

            Yea she kinda looks a little less like a big ole Clydesdale, she been looking a little better. Looks like she may have dropped a few lbs….

          • Hey Hardtimz! It’s Seuss. She dropped a few pounds, got BIG fake teeth, bleached her skin, Botox, Fillers etc….

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    I said it years ago they should do a road trip reality show. I don’t like them separately, but I’ll give it a try, maybe 1 or 2 shows, tops! The wig budget will be astronomical.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Still laughing about the “wig budget.”
      lol

    • Bad Barbie

      Not for Kim. She owns her collection. LOL

  • Guest

    I definitely won’t watch these two fake as’s reality hoes. Nothing about them is real, and they’re both fugly as all get out, on the inside & outside.

    • hardtimz

      LOL YAS YAS YAS honey….thank you! You hit it right on the nose…well their original noses!!

  • TartLemon

    I may watch a show about NeNe, but cannot stomach anything Kim Z.

  • nan/4

    OT. Has anyone else heard that Brandi Glanville was fired by BRAVO?? I just read that. Hmm….

    • hardtimz

      I heard that as well, but but Brandi stated that she wasn’t fired….hmm is right.

      • nan/4

        Hiya hardtimz! How are you? I hope all is well. I also heard that Brandi was involved in a “terrible altercation” during the taping of the reunion…..DOUBLE hmmmzzz….

        hehe 😉

        • hardtimz

          Great honeybunn and your self? Yes I read the same, and that she was getting the boot. I read that they think she’s bigger than the franchise.

          • nan/4

            I’m getting better, thanks! Glad to hear that you’re doing well. I so hope that it’s true! I’m tired of her and Kim too! We shall see…..

            Take good care of yourself honey! 🙂

    • Jennymckitty

      Oh please, please, please let it be true

      • You and I know that will never happen. Every Bravo show needs a controversial Brandi character or we wouldn’t watch. LOL!

        • Jennymckitty

          You’re spoiling this moment for me Suess.

          • LMAO! I really hate to be a party crasher! Really I do.

          • nan/4

            LOLOLLL!!!!!!!!

        • Bad Barbie

          I don’t know …

          At this point they may be losing viewers for her antics. That whole slapping King Lisa this season may have sealed it for her. She ain’t got ish to bring to the table but hostility. She should go audition at VH1 or Be the housekeeper at Bad Girls Club.

  • MidwestMiddie

    My first reaction was “NO WAY!” However, since this is a road trip show with these two
    traveling together, it could be a funny. I’ll give it a try…..but Bravo needs to hire a new
    Think Team of Producers and come up with new shows and new talent. Enough of dragging back the oldies like the much disliked Bethenny. Yawn!!

    • Jennymckitty

      It may be kind of funny. Nene has received the fame she wanted so she isn’t going to be jealous of Kim’s record. Kim has married well so she won’t be so thirsty. Hopefully they will get as well as they did in the beginning.

      Some of the other new shows they announced sound good. A travel Guide show, Below Deck Mediterranean, a ski show set in Whistler, Ladies of Dallas

      • MidwestMiddie

        Bravo’s new shows could be great but, imo, until the network gets rid
        of the Real Housewives Shows their reputation for trash will stick to them.
        It is too bad the network didn’t give viewers what was originally promised.

    • Bad Barbie

      Maybe nobody else wants to sign up for the circus?

    • Babson_Chick

      Yes — an original concept would be so welcome!!

  • Babson_Chick

    OH wow a “WIG” road trip!!

    • Jennymckitty

      The wig Nene is wearing is a step up from the Party City wigs she’s worn all season.

      • MidwestMiddie

        True ….. except, imo, the RHOA woman with the most awful hair is Cynthia.
        She looks horrible with blonde hair…..sloppy and unkept. She certainly doesn’t look like a former top model.
        Nene is Nene…..and her wardrobe has been classier than
        most all of the other women on that show.

        • Jennymckitty

          Yes but the last two seasons Nene’s wigs look like costumes or fantasy hair.

          • MidwestMiddie

            No Argument!!!
            : )

        • Brattus Rattus

          I keep looking at the pic of Kim (the second one) and all it reminds me of is “Hello Carrie wannabe from Sex and the City”.

        • fred

          for a streetwalker

      • Marsbars09

        Party City wigs! LOL!

      • Babson_Chick

        I so agree – maybe the 20’s and the mop top are out for now.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    Yeahno….I won’t be watching. I cannot, will not with NeNe

    • I may give it one try just out of curiosity but it won’t be on my roster. I can waste 30 mins of my life watching other stupid Bravo shows.

      • Jennymckitty

        I usually watch shows like this during commercials while watching Discovery ID. That’s the beauty of Bravo. Their commercials are opposite of ID.

        • Bad Barbie

          LMAOOOOOOOOOO

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        They were fun together in season one of RHOA. So it could be fun. But I am just done done done with Nene.

        • Ditto! I loved season one Nene then she changed big time as the show became a hit. She’s like a completely different person now who I can’t relate to.

          • Marsbars09

            I don’t even recognize the Nene from today to the Nene of seasons 1 and 2.

        • Bad Barbie

          But now we know it is fake, fake, fake because she went on a smear campaign about Kim. Calling her a racist, wigs and “close your legs to marry men”. Now they are back to friends? yeah ok!

          • Rochelle Barozzi

            EXACTLY!!!!!!

  • Chloe

    Tell me this is an early April Fools joke because I’m laughing and Dumb & Dumber!

  • Marsbars09

    I wonder who’s brainchild this was? We know Nene and Kim ARE NOT friends. I would bet Nene needs the money more than Kim.
    This all goes to show Nene will never prosper above the reality TV show realm. This is her livelihood.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Anything for $1.50

  • chacha1

    How NeNe gets any jobs is beyond me, she stormed off Celebrity Apprentice because she didn’t like Star Jones, she stomped out of rehearsal saying horrible things to Tony Dovalani on Dancing with the Stars because she didn’t like his tone about his partner during the switch (he is the nicest guy) and then she stormed out of Dr. Jeff’s therapy because he wasn’t kissing her ass …. so how does she get any job … and now this show !!

    • Dani-K

      Where she will drive off and leave the show (and probably Kim) like she did the others. lol

      • Bad Barbie

        #PLONK

    • Bad Barbie

      For real! You are on the money. Watch her walk off this show too because she wasn’t getting the right amount of attention. Nene has the maturity of a 12 yr old and not even.

    • HK Jaye

      PLUS…SHE HAS NO TALENT! I cannot figure out who owed her or someone a favor to allow her on Broadway…she has shit for brains and is not talented.

  • Norrth

    Poor Nene. She can’t get her own spin off. She needs Kim to have Bravo pay her any attention.

    • Bad Barbie

      Kim at least is lite fun and does the family thing.. Nene is insufferable and what other than bragging about how rich she is does she bring?

    • HK Jaye

      And that won’t last but one short season. They are both OLD and DONE now…except for Bravo TV.

  • Nancy Krystofik

    When Kim and Kandi went on the road, and Nene met up with them, and literally threw Kim under the bus with her opinion of Kim’s talent, never thought I’d see them on of all things a road trip! Since when does Kim leave her 6 Angels behind? Kroy is probably looking forward to it!

  • Bad Barbie

    Which one was the road? One used her poomkash and spread her legs to married men then found a gullible fool that she locked down with 4 kids and 2 extra.

    Nene greased the poll and found another fool to get her off the stage and out of the hood.

    Ironically, they didn’t really burn their lashes to get to riches or have to straight up struggle, go to college, work up the ranks of becoming a “career” woman. What a sad message we are sending out daughters and young sisters.

    I am not knocking their hustle though, I guess they used the only resource that they had…
    Nene is not that great actress she thinks she is. She plays herself in the roles she’s gotten so far. Kim can’t sing but hey, neither can Jlo!

    What a shame. But make that money sister gurl.

    • Brattus Rattus

      Totally agree…still not watching. lol

  • Shelly Jones

    I’ve never been a Kim Z fan. She has no substance, she’s never shown any ambition or willingness to do anything productive other than have babies and look in the mirror. It’s also disgusting that she openly flaunted her mistress status on national TV. No thank you.

    • Babson_Chick

      I’ve always liked Kim and think she over played it just for the cameras. She does have the most beautiful children and they seem happy, plus she has been married for awhile now and they seem happy also.

    • HK Jaye

      It’s called GOLD DIGGING…plain & simple. That she was ever a LPN that WORKED, is highly doubtful. I bet she met Big Daddy the day she graduated from the LPN program…a good thing for any patients she might have come in contact with.

  • honeybunny

    These two hate each other. And with so many young kids, and after all the nasty and horrible things hehe said to the mistress, I’m surprised the mistress wants to even do the show with hehe. I guarantee you hehe will once again show how jealous and insecure she is. This explains why hehe bought a big azz house for only 3 people. She wants to get on an even level with her frenemy.

    • MidwestMiddie

      This reunion is just one more BRAVO MIRACLE!!!!
      Something had to follow Bethenny’s Phenomenal Return to RHNYC ……..right? LOL
      However does Bravo do it?$$$$$$

      • HK Jaye

        Bethenny’s return has been nothing but a cry fest! I have lost any respect I ever had for her being a self-made woman. She is just another embarrassing housewife now…and a REAL shame to the Bravo ‘family’. Waiting to see what she does when she loses that baby of hers to Jason…acting a fool on TV all season. WATCHing the next Bravo train getting ready to wreck!

  • Dave

    Bravo is scraping the bottom of the barrel in the creativity department. No thanks. I won’t be watching.

  • RonnieIsBack

    We will watch Kim treat Nene like she is her slave and Nene will suck Kim’s azz..then get mad and try to choke her out….
    Not watching this chit.
    Fake AF…we all knwo they are doing it for the money
    Should be called Road to Bullchit..by Bravo

    • Shelly Jones

      Hey Ronnie..LOL You crack me up. But damn if you aint telling the truth! (as my grandma would say)

      • fred

        I wont be watching this bottom of the barrel scum im done

  • HK Jaye

    ROFLMAO…all that $$$$ they both have and they STILL be FUGLY & LOW CLASS! I won’t watch this train wreck coming down the trax~~I HATE NeNe and Kim’s just a money-grubber! Poor Kroy….and all ‘dem babies’…gotta grow up with her in their lives…spending…spending ….spending the money as fast as it shows up.
    NeNe and KIm deserve one another’s company!
