OK, Don’t Be Tardy fans, last night was all about getting a crash course in what it means to be a free agent in the NFL. In layman’s terms (if you’re Brielle, please Google what layman’s terms means before going any further) a free agent is a player who is not signed to one particular team. In short, a player who is on the market, playing the field, trying to get that next gig, like Tracey on Tinder.
Guiding us on this little lesson will be the ever-optimistic Kroy Biermann (our free agent) and his still-not-totally-on-board-but-says-she-is wife, Kim Zolciak Biermann, as they go to meet with Kroy’s agent, Buddy. Normally, Kroy not being signed to a team would be stressful but since Kim’s stroke, she looks at the unknown of free agency as one big adventure. Unless that adventure involves living in Green Bay. Or Buffalo (haha!). Or having to live in someone else’s house with their furniture and toilet (paging Teresa Guidice for some much needed foreshadowing).
If you watched the season premiere of Don’t Be Tardy, you know that Brielle Biermann’s relationship with Slade Osborne is over. But don’t worry – Kim Zolciak’sdaughter didn’t stay single for too long despite what you will see on the show – that filmed months ago. Brielle actually has a new boyfriend named Michael Kopech and apparently the dude is pretty similar to Kroy Biermann, at least according to Kim.
Yeah, I think that can seem like an odd thing to say, but it’s not like Kroy is Brielle’s birth father. Also, it’s Kim who makes the comparison, not Brielle. It’s not as if they are doppelgangers. And aside from that, who wouldn’t want to date someone like Kroy? He really is the ideal boyfriend/husband material. So hopefully for Brielle, Kim’s assessment is spot on. Aside from (what I think is) a flattering comparison to Kroy, the ladies shared a little more about Michael.
Just because Kim Zolciak isn’t on Real Housewives of Atlanta anymore, that doesn’t mean that she isn’t keeping up with the show. Not only is she tuning in, but she also a lot of opinions about the ladies. During the Watch What Happens Live after show, Kim called out Cynthia Bailey for being two faced last season. And she didn’t stop there.
Welcome back to the party, readers! It’s been a few months since we have had the pleasure of watching the Biermann Bunch but never fear, Don’t Be Tardy is happy to make up for lost time with PLENTY going on. Even without the show, we have had non-stop coverage of Kim Zolciak’s stint on Dancing with the Stars, her stroke, and Kroy Biermann’s football trades. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves and go back to a simpler time.
In Kim’s world, life is good. She’s 37, not pregnant (for now), healthy, and pouring her heart and soul into Dancing With The Stars. Then she has a stroke out of the blue and has to have major heart surgery. Kim recovers and schedules heart surgery around her DWTS schedule so she can collect that paycheck finish what she started. Oh, and the stroke has given Kim a new perspective on life and what’s important. She has an attitude of gratitude and no longer sweats the small stuff, like if her hair is perfect or if her car is clean. I would like to note here that her hair looks perfect.
Kim Zolciak Biermann, her daughter Brielle, and Flipping Out’sJeff Lewiswere guest tonight on Watch What Happens Live. Kim trotted out a new wig tonight, just for Andy, and I’m calling it Charo. And it is twelve kinds of ridiculous. (This photo is actually a GOOD shot of it compared to how it looked during the show.)
Jeff starts off the show saying he thinks this season of Real Housewives of New York has been the best of any season of any franchise. Kim takes a little bit of offense and says Atlanta consistently has the highest ratings for a reason.
It’s been a crazy few weeks for the Biermann bunch. Kroy Biermann was signed to the Buffalo Bills and before the fam could really celebrate, he was included in the list of players who were cut from the team. Now his wife Kim Zolciak is speaking out about Kroy’s future in football. And on top of that, Kroy just had a tryout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so hopefully that’s going to work out.
As a dedicated Don’t Be Tardy viewer, I have become pretty invested in the Biermann family so I am really hoping that Kroy finds a way to continue playing football this season. At the very least, he has his backup career of being a reality TV star to fall back on while he figures things out.
NeNe, who likes to keep viewers guessing about whether she will return to RHOA or not each season, tweeted recently that “I wasn’t asked 2 b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree [Whitfield] & I think Kim Z.”
