Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes: We Will Ride Before We Die ... On Reality TV

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are determined to take a road trip even if it kills them ... which is why they aren't giving up on their new reality TV project, and it looks like it's back on track. 

We're told Kim and NeNe are back in talks with Bravo, trying to work out a concept and scheduling for their "Road to Riches" project. The title is not set in stone, but the idea is the 2 of them on an Oprah/Gayle King-type journey.

One of the sticking points ... Kim doesn't want to be away from her 4 youngest kids for long stretches of time. 

The project's been on the back burner for months but now both are close to wrapping their other projects, so they're ready to roll.

The big question ... who drives?
