Even this cable reality franchise which had been slightly immune to the ratings decline affecting the other cities has now had to jump on the publicity stunt train to attract viewers.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Steps Out for Dinner with Family in Los Angeles After NeNe Leakes Calls Her ‘Racist’
The outing comes as the drama between Kim and Leakes, 49, escalates: On Tuesday, PEOPLE confirmed Kim has obtained legal counsel after Leakes accused her of being “racist” on Instagram. (A rep for Leakes had no comment.)
Last week, Leakes slammed Kim’s daughter Brielle over claims of “prejudice” after the mother-daughter pair visited Leakes’ home and allegedly found cockroaches, resurfacing an old video filmed by Brielle in Leakes’ bathroom, documenting what appeared to be black insects.
“@briellebiermann We don’t have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky p—y! Please know I will get You all the way together when you start f—ing with me and mine!” Leakes wrote in a since-deleted post.
“Go somewhere and let the air outta those fake lips, fake titties and fake ass because you will never be [@kyliejenner],” she continued. “Yo trashy mama should have taught you better! My home is Brand New but you guys were so jealous of it, you couldn’t even give a compliment. You had to stoop so low and be so disgusting #racisttrash.”
In the comments section of a separate Instagram account, Leakes called the duo “racists.”
“Kim & her daughter oops whole family are racists! What her daughter did at my home, (which she nor kim were invited to so be clear abt that as well) was pure disgusting, racist, learned behavior etc,” Leakes wrote, adding, “children are NOT off limits when you allow your child to talk to adults any kind of way, post disrespectful things on social media and so on. Kim is a calculating bio polar racist with a horrible mouth, who uses black folks for her come up.” – Read more
