Nene Leakes has been campaigning for weeks to get former #RHOA OG housewife Kim Zolciak Bierman to return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta for season 13! However, the daughter of Kim, Brielle Bierman, has made it clear that she doesn’t want to see her mom return to the show. Brielle recently told Us Weekly, “Coming home and being drained every single day because of all the negativity, it’s just not the vibe”. Brielle also adds that it wouldn’t make sense for Kim to join #RHOA considering they already have a hit show on Bravo called Don’t be Tardy, which follows Kim and the whole Bierman clan; of which season 8 is set to premiere in just a few short months. 

For those of you who don’t know, Kim was one of the original housewives cast on season 1 of Atlanta all the way back in 2008,  alongside Nene. Nene is however the only OG who still remains on the cast, and given the past season where the majority of the cast has teamed up against her, it makes sense why she has been advocating for Kim to return. Leakes has done many interviews on the subject on wanting to bring back Kim and Phaedra Parks, saying that she wants to see the OG’s return!

However, regardless of Nene’s attempts, Kim’s daughter Brielle reveals why she believes her mom won’t go back. She continues in her recent interview with Usweekly when comparing Don’t be Tardy to #RHOA saying “Here it’s not work, it’s fun, it’s family, you’re just filming your life, that is work, you have to put on a brave face everyday, you have to know you’re walking into a situation where you can be attacked and interrogated the whole entire day, who wants to do that”. I kind of agree with Brielle, here. I also just don’t feel like Kim needs that in her life right now, she is clearly killing it and looking better than ever these days. Like I said before,  Kim has her own show where she films with her family and makes good money doing it so I don’t necessarily support Kim going back on the housewives, however there’s no denying the fact that Kim is one of the most iconic housewives in history. Also the moments from the duo Nene and Kim are legendary, so that would be fun to watch. Maybe Kim could come back for a couple episodes to support Nene, since they reconciled their friendship recently. Also Nene needs all the friends and support possible right now because I feel like the woman on #RHOA have made it almost impossible for her to return for season 13 after the insane recent virtual reunion where Nene left.
