Don’t Be Tardy might be in big trouble. Kim Zolciak’s spin-off is currently filming a new season and sources say that things are off to a disastrous start. With Zolciak still dealing with the fallout from her cameo on Real Housewives of Atlanta, will Don’t Be Tardy get cancelled after Season 7?
Zolciak found herself in some hot water after her appearance on RHOA last season. The reality star and her daughter, Brielle Biermann, got into a huge feud with NeNe Leakes after they shared the now infamous cockroach video they shot inside her mansion.

The fight ended with Zolciak being accused of making racist remarks. Zolciak did her best to save face, but it sounds like the trouble followed her onto the set of Don’t Be Tardy.
Sources from the set of Don’t Be Tardy claim that Zolciak is having trouble being genuine this season. Zolciak’s inability to be authentic in front of the cameras is causing serious riffs between her and the production team, who are trying their best to produce a family show.
To remedy the situation, an insider told Radar Online that Zolciak is trying her best to rehab her public image. Unfortunately, her plan of action is not working – and it could cost her the show.
“Kim was really worried that people thought she was being racist,” the source explained, “She’s not acting like herself at all. It is so fake, and it is going to be bad TV.”
Given how Zolciak is bombing, Bravo executives are worried about the future of the spin-off. Executives have reportedly taken a look at the footage and do not like what they see. Not only is Zolciak acting like a complete stranger, but she’s also throwing everyone else off their game. Executives are doing their best to make things work, but they are preparing for the worst next season.
Although Zolciak’s days on Don’t Be Tardy might be numbered, it looks like her feud with Leakes might be dying down. Leakes’ husband, Gregg, was recently diagnosed with cancer and Zolciak sent her a care package in light of the news.
Leakes shared a picture of the thoughtful gift on social media and thanked Zolciak for sending it. Leakes did not say anything about their recent drama, but it definitely sounded like things were on the mend.
Production for Season 7 of Don’t Be Tardy is expected to continue for a few more weeks. The series should return to Bravo sometime this fall.
