Following the backlash, the 36-year-old mother of six refused to tape her spinoff show, but the standoff was short-lived, a source told Radar.
“The show will continue, and she will film," the source said, adding that the star is contractually obligated.
Her threats to stop filming Don’t Be Tardy were met with skepticism by network execs.
“It is her only source of income,” the source scoffed to Radar.
On the April 22 Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion finale, Zolciak was caught on camera claiming racism "wasn't real." Earlier in the season, she was slammed for claiming nemesis Nene Leakes' home was infested with roaches.
Days after the reunion, Zolciak defended herself for the comments and blamed unfair editing.
“During the last RHOA reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people," she said. "Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country's history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination. My love for ALL people runs deep - I am open to all and always have been."
For the upcoming season of Don't Be Tardy, execs are planning to "humanize" the epic Bravo villainess, Radar previously reported.
"There will be more scenes of her being nice and relatable to save the show," a source told Radar.
