Your dreams of seeing NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann hitting the road with a camera crew have been dashed, at least for now. The Bravo series titled NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches has been postponed—canceled—as of now.

A source confirms to E! News the show "is not happening right now." Why? "They're both in the middle of other projects. There was no way it was going to work," our source said.

Those other projects include Don't Be Tardy and To Tell the Truth. Kim just finished shooting the fourth season of her Bravo series and will be doing work in post-production and tied to promotion. Meanwhile NeNe, who just walked away from The Real Housewives of Atlanta after seven seasons, is sitting alongside Betty White on ABC's To Tell the Truth. In the revived game show hosted by Anthony Anderson, NeNe and the other panelists will have to determine if the contestant is telling the truth about the skill or fact they are displaying.

While NeNe won't be back on Real Housewives of Atlanta full-time, we have heard she may pop up from time to time.

The NeNe and Kim spinoff series was announced in March at Bravo's Upfront. "Atlanta's ‘most driven' housewives…drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure," the network said in a statement. "The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn't mean they won't occasionally drive each other crazy."

"Well, one of the things I'm most excited about is working with Kim, just the two of us," NeNe told E! News after her show was announced. "I just left Housewives where I was working with like, six monsters."

"It will be good not having anyone interfering with NeNe and I. We're back to where we started 12 years ago, no other noise," Kim told us. "No other people talking nonsense. It will just be her and I and we have a really good time."

Both ladies were also supposed to act as executive producers on the show and said they were looking forward to wigging out.

"I'm sure Kim and I will die. Like, Kim's going to want to walk down the stairs and I'm going to want to take the elevator," NeNe said.

"And she's going to want to wear my wig and I'm going to want to wear hers. But we had drama before Housewives. We got into little arguments but we always worked it out," Kim said.
