Season 8 which is billed as an updated version of the 2000s hit reality show 'The Simple Life', sounds fun unless the production team is not facing all types of problems during the filming.

AceShowbiz - Fans may not get a new season of Bravo's "Don't Be Tardy...". A new report suggests that the network is considering to drop the entire season even though they've filmed hundreds of hours of video.

Sources at Bravo reveal to MTO News that the upcoming season of the show is set to be different. In the new season, Kim Zolciak and her entire family will be getting an RV as they plan on driving across country while the camera is rolling.

According to the premise, Kim and her daughter Brielle Biermann are supposed to act clueless during the trip. The season is billed as an updated version of the 2000s hit reality show "The Simple Life" that starred Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.

The new season sounds fun unless the production team is not facing all types of problems. The show allegedly has financial issue as they has run out their budget for the entire season in just two weeks. As if that's not enough, it is said that the staff are feeling "miserable" because of the cramped filming and living conditions.

This situation reportedly leads Bravo to hold a high level meeting this week in New York to discuss the matter. It is said that Kim has a 50-50 chance about whether or not the network will continue the filming or pull the plug on the entire season and send everyone home before the season wraps.

This arrives after it was reported that Kim got a salary raise for the upcoming season. "Kim's numbers on 'Don't Be Tardy' are doing really well once the DVR numbers are accounted for," an insider previously claimed to Radar Online. "Bravo wants her back for another season, but she needs a stronger lead-in show."

The show initially had low ratings after getting switched from Sunday nights to a less desirable Friday night slot on the network. However, the show, which is currently airing its season 7, managed to bounce back which made the executive producers happy.

"Kim is getting another season of the show and she will also get a raise," explained the source. It was previously reported that the blonde star made $1.5 million per season while Brielle was getting a hefty $192,000 for the reality show.

While the raise is exciting enough, that's apparently not the only good thing happening for Kim and her family. The source went on saying that "she's getting her family vacation paid for again."
