Bravo viewers know King’s formidable history with the Atlanta Housewives. Before founding his full-service production company Kingdom Reign Entertainment, King got his start as a producer on the first season of RHOA.

“My first reality show was RHOA,” King explains in the clip. “I was this little producer who didn’t know what the f— he was doing. And my career is where it’s at because of the four of you.”

King went on to work on the show for a total of eight seasons, evening acting as showrunner for a few years, including his last — the highly rated season 9. He also helped produce the first two seasons of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and had a significant role in Teresa Giudice’s infamous table flip.

He tells Zolciak-Biermann, Snow, Whitfield and Wu on The Nightcap: “This is really a celebration for you ladies.”
