The Biermann Bunch is currently filming their sixth season of Don’t Be Tardy. But first, Kim and Brielle had to fly out to LAX for more plastic surgery. Allegedly. One assumes. On the way out of LAX Kim stops to talk to the ever present TMZ cameras about the rumors of her return to RHOA for the landmark season 10.
Kim basically said she would consider returning if the price was right. The TMZ story read a lot into that saying that she expects to be paid more than Nene. Kim did not say that. However, she and Nene have had a similar battle before. The two were supposed to do a spin-off with just the two of them on a cross country trip kind of like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. But the production was cancelled because the two could not get their schedules to work out. At least that was the public reason. Nene’s schedule at that time was To Tell the Truth and that was a one week taping gig. Also, she had just blown her RHOA negotiations in a way that I am surprised she was even allowed to return for a single episode. So the money negotiations are going to be difficult for Nene for season 10 as Bravo has already set hard limits.
Kim can point to the success of her spin-off as justification for a high dollar contract. Kim implied that in the video clip. What’s Nene been up to lately? Events that are usually side jobs for the housewives in the off season, small clubs, and multilevel marketing franchises. Kim will want to be the highest paid housewife and likely will be.
She also wants Kandi gone. Here is the thing. Porsha and Sheree are by far the two lowest paid housewives and the cheapest to keep. Kandi is pricey but a great source of conflict for Kim. So that may put Phaedra and my beloved Cynthia in danger. But it is way too early to tell at this point. The decisions will be all about money. Bravo has finally figured out they don’t have to pay these fools that much to humiliate themselves on TV and on the new franchises the pay is considerably lower than was the original shows are still paying out. I’ll keep my ears open when the discussions begin in earnest.
If Nene and Kim were to both return, which two housewives would you want to see gone or demoted to a friend slot?
