Kim Zolciak is set to return on The Real Housewives of Atlanta season nine after a four-year absence. Her return has been rumored over the years ever since she left the Bravo series after season five and was previously hinted by NeNe Leakes on Twitter. Though Zolciak denied her casting, saying she has no idea where Leakes got her information, cast members Kandi Burrus and Cynthia Bailey confirmed that she’s making an appearance at Sheree Whitfield’s housewarming this season.

So is Zolciak returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for good? Bailey says she’s uncertain about Zolciak’s status but she’s not opposed to Zolciak returning full time if it’s going to make the Bravo series better. 

“I don’t know what is going to happen in the future,” Bailey told People Now. “All the original cast from the Housewives, I always take my hat out to them because they started the whole thing. Without them, we wouldn’t be here. So hey — if it’s gonna make the show better and you want to jump on the team and help keep this show no. 1, then by all means, come.”

Do you think Zolciak should return for good or should she just make a guest appearance? 

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
