More Changes at Bravo: Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann Land Real Housewives of Atlanta Spin-Off

Think: Bethenny Ever After with wigs and wine.

For months it was rumored that The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak was leaving the show to star in her own spin-off with her new man, Kroy Biermann. Now, sources at the network can confirm that those rumors are true.

"Kim is a game-changer. She was the first housewife to release a single and just like Bethenny [Frankel], she fell in love and got pregnant while taping the show," a Bravo insider tells Rob Shuter. "She's the perfect choice for the next lady to get her own show."

Leakes and the remaining Real Housewives of Atlanta began shooting their latest season in April, but no premiere date has been released.
