Will you still watch the show if they go?

UPDATE: According to TMZ, one of the major issues between NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak and the producers of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is the stars’ electric bills! The housewives are reportedly fuming that they have to pay the steep bills for the power used by the show’s crew. TV cameras and lights are serious energy suckers — and the money is coming right out of NeNe and Kim’s pockets! 

Say it isn’t so! What would you do if the two most watchable stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta up and left? Their onscreen sparring makes the show so juicy and watchable!

The diva-like demands (including an exorbitant amount of money to appear on the show) of Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak are said to be too much for Bravo producers, who are quietly seeking out cheaper replacements for the ladies, claims the NY Daily News.

“Bravo has been taking meetings with some notable and wealthy Atlanta woman about possibly joining the show,” a source tells the newspaper. “They’re trying their best to keep the process under wraps, but they’re gearing up to make a major move in the third season.”

Although a Bravo rep tells HollywoodLife.com that “they can neither confirm or deny what will happen Season 3”, the network is reportedly searching for a sixth socialite to replace our two favorite ladies and join the ranks of Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield and Lisa Wu. And if these names sound unfamiliar to you, it’s because Nene and Kim are literally the cat-fighting hearts and souls of the program.

What will we do without them?
