AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak reunited in a new episode of Instagram Live show called "Cocktails After Dark", which was first launched on Friday, April 3. At one point, the topic of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" was unsurprisingly brought up in the conversation during the episode.
"If you could change someone on the current cast, and bring someone from the past … who would you bring back?" NeNe asked Kim, who starred on the Bravo show from 2008 to 2012. "I would definitely bring…I feel like me, you, Sheree [Whitfield] … I feel like the OG's are the best. I mean, getting rid of somebody?"
In response, Kim alluded that the current "RHOA" stars were faking their storylines. "I think it's all just gotten to the point that they live in fantasy land. It's not all real. They aren't showing their real side, their real life." NeNe agreed, adding, "I feel like when we started, we were quite different. We were raw. We were just saying anything, and doing anything -- we were having a good time, and we told our real stories. I’'m not saying that they don’t, but I'm saying they think about it."
"I think they think about it, and I think they strategically plan it out," Kim echoed the sentiment. "For us, we were just kind of being who we were. We had no idea where this was going to go. I don't know if you guys know this, but I wasn't ever supposed to be on it because it was supposed to be an all African American cast."
During the Instagram Live, Kim revealed that "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" was originally titled "Ladies of Atlanta". "So we did this pilot, we had so much fun … and I was like 'are we doing a porno? WTF do you mean 'Ladies of Atlanta?' ' I had no idea it was Housewives. That was 13 years ago," Kim, who is currently starring on her spin-off series "Don't Be Tardy...", recalled.
