For me, last night’s anticipation was palpable. I mean, for serious! We finally are going to get to see Kim Zolciak sans wig! I can hardly contain myself. So, dear readers, sit back and enjoy the recap for Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding…it’s less than 48 hours in TV world until we meet Mrs. Kroy Biermann!
We begin, of course, with Kim telling precious K.J. about all the stress and craziness that surround her wedding plans. I love that she informs him that her wig has yet to be cut and that dudes in Atlanta do in fact wear heels…especially if their name is Derek J. Construction is in full swing for the nuptial scenario, and Kim and Kroy meet with security. Kim is concerned about the people who have RSVP’ed to her wedding that she didn’t actually invite…aka perfect strangers (Balkie joke? Nah). She takes security on a tour of their home and informs them of who is allowed to be in the house…and it’s basically just family. Kroy wants guns and dogs. Armed security and Shepherds? Check.
Everybody’s favorite wig-lovin Housewife will celebrate another momentous occasion today. She will be unveiling her real hair on television tonight for the first time ever! That’s right – Kim will go wigless in preparation for her wedding hair.
I can hardly wait – I have been waiting FOUR years on bated breath for the real live, albeit heavily dyed, strands and follicles of Madame Zoliciak now Biermann.
Well fans and gawkers alike, Reality Tea will be capturing the unveiling – which may just be the most exciting thing Bravo has ever aired – via liveTweet. So don’t forget to join us for the gasp inducing reaction we’re sure to have!
Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding airs tonight at 9:30/10:30 EST on Bravo.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

It’s just four days until the fantasy nuptials of the future Mr. and Mrs. Kroy Biermann. As the time runs out, drama amps up…but it’s no longer mama drama on Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. Jen has become the MOH who is MIA.
Just like with every episode, the show begins with Kim Zolciak talking to the adorbs K.J. She is complaining to him about how lax her matron-of-honor Jen is being, and he is just giggling away in his Spiderman hoodie. Kim can’t dwell on slack attendants for long, she has tent issues to worry about. Severe tent issues that drive her to drink white zinfandel before lunchtime. Kim has visions of covering the pool and and getting hitched under a gazebo which will sit atop the jacuzzi. She never ever ever ever had dreams of a tent in her backyard to shield guests from potential bad weather.
TMZ reports that the Roswell Fire Department got a call around 9:35am yesterday morning to send a truck to the scene where a four-wheeler was burning. The fire department was able to extinguish the fire and no one was hurt.
I would make a joke about white trash and four-wheelers catching on fire, because I’m from WV and can do things like that – but house fires are serious. Let’s just say: good thing no one was injured and the house didn’t end up in flames.
Kim tweeted her appreciation, “Shout out to Roswell Fire Dept for their quick response this morning God is always on my side! #grateful!” We’re grateful too.
On last night’s Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, we are (yea!) one week closer to Kim Zolciak’s wedding extravaganza! There is vow writing, there is portable toilet shopping, and there is a potentially faux peace treaty forged between Kim and her wedding-ruining mother.
Can I just say that K.J. is a Kroy Biermann mini-me? I love the premise of Kim talking to him at the start of each show. That skull and crossbones knit cap is just too much!
Kim is wearing a belly baring pleather shirt and meeting up with her Uncle John who apparently lives in my neck of the woods. She starts in on her mother, and John is quick to remind her that she’s about to talk crap about his sister. Kim shares that her mom is threatening to be sick on her wedding day, and John reminds her that she is very particular. Kim’s mom Karen informed John of her threats, and John reveals that his sister is no longer talking to him after he put in his two cents. Wait, did Kim just spit out some gum at the table? John believes that Kim and Karen are too similar, hence the tension. The pair gets teary remembering John’s battle with cancer and how he promised not to leave her until she was married. Kim asks him to accompany her dad in walking her down the aisle. Wow, Kim has a heart on this show!
She by SheBroke has officially hung up her rented Housewives crown and moved on to other venues. Since leaving the show that made her extravagant spending and delusional ideas about elegance and soffisication a household topic, Sheree has decided to go in a completely different direction and one that I think will serve her well. Hey, she might even become She by ShePaid!
Speaking to Essence Magazine, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star shares how things have been since announcing her retirement. “I’ve got a couple projects that I’m working on that I’m really excited about. I’ve partnered with a company called Xooma to create a 5 million-pound fitness challenge,” Sheree reveals. “We’re trying to help a generation get healthy. I’m really excited about it because this is my realm and what I love.”
Sheree maintains that the decision to leave the show was completely her own. “It was an amicable split,” Sheree insists. “I was ready to move and I don’t need to explain myself to anybody.”
“I am super happy and I’m moving in a different direction. This is what I know. I’m not about just being on a show bickering and fighting with women. There are big parts of my life that weren’t shown that I’m ready for everybody to see.”
Kenya Mooreis allegedly the newest castmember on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The former beauty queen and current model/actress was called in to replace the fired Sheree Whitfield. Interestingly, until recently Kenya didn’t even live in Atlanta – she lived in LA – and she’s not from there. She grew up in Detroit. So how did a non-Atlanta native land a spot on a show about Atlanta housewives?
Additionally this begs the question – is Bravo taking storyline manipulation too far? I mean this is supposed to be reality TV, but how little is too little reality? Popular Atlanta blog Tamara Tattles has been investigating the issue of how Kenya ended up on the producer’s list to join the show. First of all, Tamara confirms Kenya is definitely a member of the cast next season. And that she came to the producers’ attention from former Apprenticevillain Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth!
And how does Omaraso know Kenya? ThroughNeNe Leakes! Apparently back in the days when NeNe was threatening Star Jones on Celebrity Apprentice, Omarosa was her behind-the-scenes mentor. While she obviously didn’t do a very good job directing Ms. Leakes in business etiquette, she made an impression on the feisty housewife and the two remained friends.
Last July, NeNe (along with supposedly estranged husband Gregg Leakes) were hanging out at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. Omarosa was also there – with her friend Kenya! NeNe and Kenya hit it off and NeNe started dropping her name to producers. Kenya agreed to relocate and thus her entry into the Real Housewives was cemented.
