It seems like more and more dirty laundry will be aired on Bravo's Real Housewives franchise. Last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, it was the book Cop Without a Badge that revealed Danielle Staub's shady past and sparked tension among the New Jersey ladies. Now, it's The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes' book that will be dishing the dirt on former friend turned sparring partner Kim Zolciak.

As reported previously, NeNe has a new autobiography called Never Make the Same Mistake Twice. The book, which is being published by Simon & Schuster, centers on Nene's life as a single mother and her struggles to get away from an abusive relationship. But besides her rags-to-riches story, the book will also spare a few pages for her other Atlanta housewives co-stars, including Kim's explosive past as a stripper named "Barbie," who once worked the sandy strip of New Jersey's Atlantic City.

"NeNe and Kim were friends back in the day, and now that they're enemies, she's ready to dish some dirt," an insider said.

On the book, Nene also sheds light on the fact that the aspiring singer dates married men.

Kim seems to be the most mysterious cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In the first season, she had a love interest whom she mysteriously referred to as "Big Poppa" --- his identity was never revealed nor had he ever appeared on the show.

While Kim has yet to comment on NeNe's stripper accusation, this isn't something that will go unnoticed.

If you want more dirt on Kim and the rest of the housewives, check out ever Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, hitting shelves August 11. Or better yet, catch the second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta airing every Thursday at 10pm on Bravo.
