The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and Real Housewives of New Jersey failed to draw a big crowd. The season 6 premiere attracted 2.14 million viewers overall. However, in the key demo, it was the lowest rated premiere episode in the history of the show. For comparison’s sake, season 5 premiered to 2.842 million and the season 5 average was 2.29 million.
Don’t Be Tardy is back and this time the Biermanns have a six-pack of kids to make their household just a little more crazy. After the premiere Thursday night, both Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann sat down with Bravo to cover the craziness that is their lives.
Including, who makes a meaner mac and cheese, finally moving into their dream home, drinking a placenta smoothie and all those kids!
For any family of eight, mac and cheese — the blue box kind — and frozen chicken nuggets are probably a dinner time staple, and these former stars of the Real Housewives of Atlanta are no different. But the Biermanns do disagree on just who can bust out this culinary concoction better.
We kick things off with the twins arriving today! This brings the Biermann family total to lucky number 19! Er, I mean, 8. Kim and Kroy are heading to the hospital and saying goodbye to everyone as if they’re going for pizza and will be back in an hour. Brielle was like “Later, I’m taking a nap”. I’m assuming this milestone has become uneventful since Kim has literally been to this rodeo 37 times before.
We are then treated to a montage of pictures that are essentially selfies, selfies and more selfies. I mean, who kisses your husband and takes a selfie at the same time? With your eyes open? Totally normal. Not weird at all. Just when I start to think the entire show will be Kim narrating over selfies, we get a glance at their dream house finally finished. Slowly my mind starts drifting off thinking how much are the property taxes, hell, even the monthly electric bill – and we see that it’s 17,000 square feet of pure of Kim Zolciak. She’s done Julia Sugarbaker proud. Exhibit A: The candy cane room, an ode to a red-striped couch. Um, OK.
Kim Zolciak is back! TheDon't Be Tardy season 3 premiere date is finally set – Thursday, July 17th – and here is our first peek at what to expect!
Kim and her Biermann crew are back in front of the cameras – including two adorable new additions – twins Kane and Kaia. Kim, Kroy, Brielle, Ariana, KJ, Kash and the twins are moving into their new mansion, camping, vacationing and shopping in the all new season and it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun! I'll take this Kim over the old Real Housewives of Atlanta Kim any day!
Take a look at the teaser trailer below. They had me already with their six cutie-pie kiddos, but I am not about to miss Kim "roughing it" at a campground – wigs in tow! And not to mention seeing the inside of her new house! Count me in.
And can I get an AMEN that Bravo is airing a show at the end of the week? It feels like so many of their shows are crammed in on Sundays and Mondays – it's great to see them spread things out for once!
With all the new and returning reality TV shows headed our way this summer, we thought we'd take a minute to weed through the mess and try to gauge which ones our readers are anticipating the most. There are so many to choose from that surely our DVRs are going to be smoking by July! That's assuming that most of you will be recording shows to watch in the evening since you'll be outdoors this summer, enjoying some fresh air, sandy beaches and fruity drinks. But of course you'll have your phone along on those long hikes and whilst lounging in your lawn chair so you can read Reality Tea while getting your exercise and rest, right? We hope so!
Making their debuts this summer are a slew of new shows that include Kandi's Wedding, Bachelor in Paradise,LeAnn & Eddie (unless VH1 cancels it before it even starts..), Ladies of London, Little Women LA and so many more! We also have a handful of returning shows – like Real Housewives of New Jersey (so excited!), Big Brother (voyeurs raise your hands!), Sister Wives, Don't Be Tardy and others.
Take our polls below to tell us which shows are at the top of your reality TV viewing list! And tell us in the comments which ones you're hoping that we cover here on the site.
For the last three years, Kim Zolciak has been pregnant on her birthday. So this year, her husband, Atlanta Falcon player Kroy Biermann, took her on a little getaway to celebrate, leaving all six kids at home. We are still guessing as to where the lovebirds went on their little getaway, but Kim shared lots of pics on Instagram along the way.
“So excited! High in the sky with this guy@kroybiermann … a short little getaway to celebrate my birthday tomorrow! 1st birthday in 3 years that I'm NOT pregnant!! #myhubbyisthebest,” Kim tweeted along with the photo above of the twosome on a plane.
So what else did her mystery destination birthday have in store?
We may or may not (we totally do) stalk Kim's Instagram for our daily dose of cuteness – and now we look forward to the return of Don't Be Tardy so we can see the family in action. Love her or hate her, you cannot deny that Kim Zolciak makes beautiful children.
Above: Kim shared, "First date night in 2014! I love this man more than life!! He grabbed my hand to hold it… made me giggle!" Kim's a better wife than me. Six kids – two infants and two who are young and probably clingy – I would not want to be touched for a few hours. LOL
Peek below for two videos of KJ singing. As well as a bunch of recent pictures of Brielle, Ariana,KJ, Kash, and twins Kane and Kaia- including a family trip to the beach and Brielle's prom.
