However, the biggest surprise of all is Kim.

After leaving in season 5, due to problems on set, she launched her own spinoff show and returned as a Friend in season 10.

LAWSUIT

Everyone from season one returned except for Nene Leakes, who has accused the show and network of racism and a hostile work environment.

Although Kim is not officially named in the lawsuit, she was cited many times.

Nene's former best friend was accused of having "bad behavior" and not getting punished for it.

Kim will address the lawsuit for the first time at the upcoming reunion.

She and her co-stars are reported to share their opinions on the ongoing suit.

KIM'S DEPARTURE

Kim left in the middle of season 5 after getting in a spat with the other housewives and production.

At the time, Kim was seven months pregnant with her son Kash Kade and had been invited by Cynthia Bailey to travel to Anguilla for her vow renewal with Peter Thomas.

However, she told the other housewives that she wasn't able to travel because of her pregnancy which started a fight with almost everyone.

After a yelling match with the housewives and production, Kim quit on the spot.

Before the lawsuit, Nene wanted the original cast members to return to the show.

NOT THE VIBE

Kim's daughter, Brielle, didn't think it was a good idea for her mom to return, due to negativity on RHOA.

She told : "I don’t know why she would. She has her own TV show and it’s doing great and it’s super fun to film and I don’t know why she would put herself back into that crazy environment.

"I mean maybe if it was less negativity, more positivity [and] a couple of people were replaced. Yeah, she’d probably go back."

She further explained: "I don’t want her to go back.

"Coming home and being drained every single day because of all the negativity, it’s just not the vibe."
