But will Kim be celebrating a return to RHOA anytime soon? In the wake of RHOA cast announcements — including the return of Porsha Williams and the departure of Kandi Burruss as well as Marlo Hampton's exit— fans may be wondering if Kim could also return to the show.

Kim exclusively told Celebuzz! that she will not be returning to RHOA. 

"As much as I enjoyed holding a peach for years and enjoyed popping in now and then, I will not be returning to the show."

Kim joined RHOA for Season 1 when it debuted on Bravo in October 2008. Kim remained as a cast member on the show until Season 5. At the time of leaving RHOA, Kim was 32 weeks pregnant with KJ. "I handled my sh— for five seasons, from fights, to arguments, to the tears, but being pregnant puts a whole new spin on everything, and what happened on the outside affects what happens with the baby on the inside, and that was my priority!!" Kim wrote in a blog post for at the time. "I called it quits for this season and I don't regret it at all."

Kim did take fans inside her life on her Bravo series, Don't Be Tardywhich focused on her marriage to former NFL player, Kroy Biermann, and their family for 8 seasons. Kim, who last made a cameo on RHOA Season 15, hinted that she might return to TV in some capacity, just not as a cast member of RHOA

"I am sorry to disappoint those who were holding out hope that I'd return and they would get to watch me in action again this season," she told Celebuzz! "However, that doesn't mean that you've seen the last of me yet on TV so stay tuned for more on that in the near future."

"I'm so happy for [Brielle and Billy], nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids happy!" she wrote. "It's the best feeling EVER!! Love you both to the moon and back and look forward to allllll the years to come."
