Summer technically beings three weeks from today, but Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer for many. For me, it begins to feel like summer after my daughter’s annual dance recital, which usually leads into my kids’ last week of school. They are going to be bouncing off the walls. If you need me, I will be hiding in a corner with a bottle of wine. I’m kidding. Maybe.
Judging from that photo above (come on! that synthetic wig is EVERYTHING), this week’s Throwback Thursday victim has come a long way, baby! Kim Zolciak has only been on our radars for a few years now, but she has had already had quite the style metamorphosis since hitting our reality TV screens on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008. Kim has definitely upped her hair, makeup and wardrobe game over the years!
Take a look at the Kim Zolciak photos in our gallery and check out some of her early looks.
BethennyFrankel turned the tables on Andy Cohen for a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. He dished on casting mistakes he’s made, which franchise has the most behind-the-scenes drama, whose fans he worries about burning down his house, and more.
Bethenny asked Andy, thinking back to the first season of Real Housewives of Orange County, did he think it would be as big as it is today. He said the possibility hit him in season two when Matt and Jeana Keough‘s marriage fell apart. “I was like, this is like a soap opera. Like, I care about Jeana, and things are not going well for her.”
On reality TV being blamed for the demise of so many marriages, Andy shared, “I think it has accelerated marriages that weren’t working. I’ve talked to Tamra [Judge] about this. I’ve talked to Vicki [Gunvalson] about this. They were in a relationship that wasn’t working. They saw it replayed on TV, and were like, ‘Wow, this is really bad.’ They had a chorus of people saying ‘dump him, dump him’ and they actually had the balls to do it.”
“Wow! The day has come. My baby Brielle is graduating today! The struggle is real,” Kim shared on Instagram. “Brielle, we are so incredibly proud of you and the woman you have become. You have made my job these last 18 years so incredibly easy, so fun, and so memorable. I have dreaded this days for 18 yrs, and these 18 yrs have flown by. There are no words to describe how much we love you. You have set an incredible example for your brothers and sisters. We will always be here for you and I know you are about to do amazing things in this world! Reach for the stars my princess! #SoHard #Catch22 #INeedAShrink #ProudMama #BringOnTheTissues”

So do the Real Housewives really look as glamorous off-camera as they do on Bravo? The stars of Real Housewives Of New York and Real Housewives Of Orange County dish on what they’ve learned since the cameras started rolling, how TV has affected their looks, and if they’re really as glam when they’re not on Bravo!
All the women admit they’re more casual in real life than they are in reality TV life, usually wearing jeans and shirts or workout gear instead of satin cocktail dresses and Louboutins. Bethenny Frankel confesses to being “braless in pajamas” when she drops off her daughter Bryn at school. “Honestly, that’s where the photographers really should be, because it’s scary. It’s a disaster,” she jokes. Hopefully Bethenny is actually wearing her own PJs and not her daughter’s…
