Bravo announced today that they are adding ten new original series to its fall slate and renewing four other series including the network’s first scripted show, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce which debuted last year and a new half hour scripted comedy, Odd Mom Out. However, the one show creating the most headlines involves two former “Housewives” – NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann.

“IT’S OFFICIAL @kimzolciakbiermann and I have our own spin off show only on #BRAVO!,” Leakes posted on Instagram earlier today. “We announced it today in New York City with our entire Bravo & True Entertainment family.”
Zolciak-Biermann also boasted proudly, “It’s OFFICIAL!!! My girl @neneleakes and I are doing a show together! We are in NYC today together and made the BIG announcement!! We are so excited for Road to Riches.
Leaks and Zolciak-Biermann will also serve as Executive Producers of the working title, NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches. The two became household names for their participation in The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In this new series, the pair will leave Georgia behind and “drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure. The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy,” according to Bravo. And what’s a Housewives show without a lot of shouting?
This real odd couple have been apart of the Housewives universe since the show’s debut in 2008, although Zolicak-Biermann has pretty much been out of the series since 2013. Leakes is the most famous of the two. In addition from living the “everyday life” as a housewife, she has also enjoyed a few side reality shows and specials including, H8R, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, The Celebrity Apprentice and Dancing with the Stars. And when she isn’t playing herself, she’s made room to play someone else on both Glee and The New Normal. She’s also lost a lot of weight and is looking fantastic.
Zolciak-Biermann on the other hand, is pretty much famous for being famous with her role on Housewives. Then again, she has four children to keep her busy.
