I’ll never try to pretend Bravo’s motives, but Don’t Be Tardy has officially been moved to Thursday night, which means this week we were treated to a double dose of Kim Zolciak Biermann, Kroy, chef Tracey, and, of course, that cursing toddler! You’re welcome.
Last night’s episode begins with Kim greeting Shun while yelling at her dogs for interrupting her Instagramming. The dog in a cage should feel grateful it’s not being tormented by KJ. Kim complains about how hard it is to be followed by children 24/7, so she and Shun grab their solo cups of wine and retreat to Kim’s bedroom to discuss Shun’s lack of a dating life. Shun describes her perfect man, but Kim encourages her to think outside the box. Kim swears by “ask, believe, receive,” but she’s not so sure it will work for normal folks like Shun. She offers to set up Shun with her personal trainer–if he’s willing–before getting bombarded with balls being thrown at her face (there goes her social life! 😉 ) by KJ. She admits to be terrified of her three-year-old, and for once the Bravo viewing audience can agree with something Kim says.
First, I have to give Jill a little shoutout. I don’t know what’s in the water in NYC, but the ladies all seem to be aging backwards! Jill looked amazing tonight – the photo above doesn’t do her justice.
“I was exasperated, it was a flippant comment,” defends Caroline. “I had simply had enough. New Year’s was at least a week before, and I was done with this topic. But Juliet being Juliet just wouldn’t let it go. I was going through the biggest crisis at work that I have ever had to go through, and I just didn’t have the head space to discuss these things anymore. I wanted her to stop calling me. She had already blown things up with Jules; it was just typical.”
With Brandi along with Kim Richards out, Lisa says dynamics have drastically shifted. “It’s going to be a lot different in Season 6 because of the cast changes,” she dishes. Of course, new cast members doesn’t necessarily mean less drama!
“Having Kim gone is different,” explains Lisa. “But there are other dynamics and now there are other differences of opinion to keep it interesting. That is what makes us so fun to watch!” Hopefully “FUN” is the operative word – because last season’s sobriety whodunit was tiresome.
Kim has since been cleared to fly. So, she hopped on a plane and headed to New York City for an appearance on Good Morning America, where she talked about the mini stroke she suffered three weeks ago, the heart condition her doctors discovered while she was hospitalized, and the disappointment she felt over ‘the powers that be’ forcing her to withdraw from Dancing with the Stars.
