The official story coming out of the Bravo TV camp is that the reason the famous “frenemies” Nene Leakes’ and Kim Zolciak’s spin-off reality show “Road to Riches” was axed was ostensibly because of their conflicting schedules.
That is not the case, according to sources close to the now-defunct spin-off from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
According to Straight from the A, it wasn’t so much that the Wigged One, Zolciak, is in production for her “Don’t Be Tardy” and Leakes has her her ABC show, “To Tell the Truth,” coming up.
The real reason the show won’t go down is that when Leakes decided to leave RHOA, the most successful of the “Real Housewives” franchise in Bravo’s portfolio, it nixed the spin-off to the show as well. According to the publication, the spin-off was part of the contract that presupposed Leakes would be staying on with RHOA. Now that she is walking away from one show, Bravo has snatched the other off the table.
