'Tardy' Singer Kim Zolciak Leaving 'Real Housewives'?

Party crasher Michaele Salahi isn't the only party girl in the Real Housewives world whose future on the Bravo franchise might be in jeopardy. "Tardy for the Party" "singer" Kim Zolciak may not be returning to the next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nor might her nemesis, NeNe Leakes.

The word, according to a New York Daily News story, is that the warring pair may be booted from Housewives for making "diva-esque" demands regarding their compensation for appearing on the show.

But if Kim and NeNe do get axed, fear not Housewives fans. The show will go on.

"Things with NeNe and Kim have been intense," a source told the Daily News gossip blog, "but Bravo feels the show is about the franchise as a whole and won't let one person stop it."

As for who will replace NeNe and Kim if they end up on the cutting room floor, the channel is said to be "taking meetings with some notable and wealthy Atlanta women," but have decided against casting R&B singer Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Foster Raymond.

Raymond was said to be in the running for a part on the series, but apparently the current cast members said they would leave the show if she were to be cast.
