Those rumors you may have heard about Kim Zolciak-Biermann's return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the show's upcoming ninth season? They're just that—rumors.

The Don't Be Tardy star is hoping to quash any chatter about the possibility that you might see a peach in her hand once again, telling E! News that she has no idea where her old co-star NeNe Leakes is getting her information from.

"NeNe texted me last week and asked me, and I responded 'No.' And then two hours later, she's telling everybody I'm going to be on," Kim told us at the premiere of Oxygen's new reality series Strut in NYC.

"When you hear it from my mouth and I tell you 'No,' the answer's no," she reiterated, explaining that no one from the network has even approached her about returning to her old stomping grounds. "I've not even been asked to be on this season, so I don't now, it's weird."

NeNe got the rumor mill started last week during an appearance on People Now. When asked about her own potential return to the series (she only made occasional appearances in season eight), NeNe said, "I heard once they couldn't work their deal out with me, they went to Kim Zolciak. I'm just telling you the truth!"
