Kim Zolciak hatched a desperate ploy to return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta as a full-time cast member, and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details of her negotiations to get back on the hit show.
Zolciak, 39, returned to RHOA to wage war with NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore as a “friend,” but, according to an insider, she wasn’t even going to be on half of the episodes because she didn’t go on any of the out-of-town trips with the ladies.
So, Zolciak concocted a scheme to get back on the whole season as a Housewife.
“Kim offered to take a big pay cut on Don’t Be Tardy in order to come back full time on RHOA,” an insider told Radar.
Zolciak was earning a whopping $90,000 an episode for Season 10 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bravo’s highest-rated show.
“Kim told producers that she would be happy to not make as much money on her spin-off show if they would let her come back full-time on RHOA," the insider said.
But Bravo produces balked at her hefty paycheck.
“The RHOA ladies make so much money," noted the insider, "and most likely only Kenya is leaving after this season, so there might not be enough to bring her back. Kim might not be worth all the money she wants, even if she is willing to take a pay cut on her other show.”
