Kim Zolciak is setting the record straight on her rumored return on The Real Housewives of Atlanta which her frenemy NeNe Leakes started last week.

NeNe Leakes Out, Kim Zolciak In for Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 9>>> 

On September 7,  Leakes revealed on Twitter that producers did not ask her to return for the new season and that Sheree Whitfield and Kim Zolciak would be returning. 

However, Zolciak tells E! News that she has no idea where Leakes got her information. 

“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,” the Don’t Be Tardy star singer said.

“When you hear it from my mouth and I tell you ‘No,’ the answer’s no,” she said, adding that no one from Bravo has even approached her about returning to the show where she first started. “I’ve not even been asked to be on this season, so I don’t know, it’s weird.”

In addition to her post on social media, Leakes also talked about Zolciak on People Now, further igniting the casting rumors. 

“I heard once they couldn’t work their deal out with me, they went to Kim Zolciak,” Leakes said. “I’m just telling you the truth!”

“When we couldn’t work the deal out on me making appearances, then they went to Kim to work the same thing, I suppose,” she added. “I’m assuming she took it.”

Though Zolciak denies any deals with the network, she remains open to the possibility of returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which she hasn’t appeared on since she left in season 5.

“I mean, I would make an appearance and I adore Sheree [Whitfield,]” Zolciak admitted. “Sheree and I have a great time together, so I can’t say never, but I definitely enjoy filming with my family.”
