NeNe Leakes Responds to Possibility of Kim Zolciak's Return to 'RHOA'
NeNe Leakes has no problem with Kim Zolciak returning to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," as long as Kim will fully participate in the show. All About The Real Housewives reported on Monday, Jan. 13, that NeNe responded to the possibility of Kim returning to the show with a slight diss on Kim's work ethic. 

NeNe was on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live" on Sunday night. A viewer tweeted the show asking NeNe if she wants Kim to return. 

“I’m not against Kim returning to 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,' as long as she’s willing to work,” NeNe responded with a laugh.

NeNe's feeling that Kim was lazy towards the end of her time as a housewife was shared by the other housewives. During a group meeting in a restaurant midway through season five, NeNe, along with Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Stewart, and Kenya Moore, told Kim that they felt that ever since she got married and had her babies, she didn't want anything to do with them anymore, as evidenced by her reluctance to take part in group outings. The confrontation resulted in Kim storming out of the restaurant, her last appearance on the show.

Kim Zolciak recently revealed that she's open to returning to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," despite her less than warm departure. 

"Now that I'm done having babies, I can't say that I wouldn't go back. For the most part, I enjoyed my time on the show," she told a magazine in December.
