Last week Kim Zolciak‘s oldest daughter Brielle Biermann turned 20. Yes – it’s hard to imagine that when we met Brielle on Real Housewives Of Atlanta she was like 12, but now she’s old enough to have plastic surgery and get married.
To celebrate her mini-me turned BFF‘s birthday, Kim threw Brielle a surprise party at LA’s Fig & Olive – and made sure they wore practically matching outfits.
“Happy Birthday to my angel @briellebiermann I just can’t believe it!!!” instagrammedKim. “I just can’t believe it was 20 years ago today I became your mom! Scared out of my mind yet so excited! Had I known how easy it would have been to raise you I certainly would of had a lot less anxiety! I’m extremely proud of the leader you are, the heart you have and share, the love you have for your siblings, the respect, loyalty, and commitment to your family and above it all how you always have remained TRUE to you!! Keep shining!!! Can’t wait to squeeze you!! Love you oh so much!!! #HappyBirthdayBrielle #TheBig20.”
In this week’s roundup of social media snapshots, we have the reality TV stars celebrating Valentine’s Day; Erika Girardi, the Toms of Vanderpump Rules, and Lilly Ghalichi visiting New York City; Lisa Vanderpump living her fabulous life; and more.
The current season of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been pretty wild, but I will always miss the golden era of RHOA. The show hasn’t been the same since we saw NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak, and Sheree Whitfield arguing with each other, shifting sides, and pulling wigs. That’s why I’m pretty pumped and hopeful that these rumors about NeNe and Kim coming back to the show may be true.
I never expected either of them to return to the show full time. I just figured – if anything – Kim and NeNe would make a few cameo appearances, stir stuff up, avoid the fray, and then collect their paychecks.
Even though Real Housewives of Atlanta is stilling airing its current season, there has already been a lot of talk about the next year of RHOA. Specifically, people want original cast members NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak to return for the show’s tenth season. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but NeNe’s going on and on about how she created the show and how she’s more important than the rest of the cast.
I’m not gonna lie, I would love it for the OG cast members to return to RHOA. I don’t think it’s “needed” since this season has been entertaining for the most part, but there are a couple people who are lacking story line. I have no idea if NeNe is even coming back, but she and her reinstated BFF Cynthia Bailey had a lot to say about the other ladies and how NeNe is the HBIC of the cast… of a show that she’s not even on anymore.
It would take A LOT to get me to stop watching Real Housewives shows. Still, I don’t think that they are all as good as they used to be. One show that makes me really miss its original cast and plot lines is Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes, and Kim Zolciak’s friendships were straight up iconic. Thankfully, Sheree is back on RHOA, but what about NeNe and Kim? Will they return? It seems the powers-that-be are hoping they will!
Please. Please. Please. We need the original trio back together to knock down the inflated egos of the current cast members. Let’s make this show iconic again.
NeNe, Kim, and Sheree had so many ups and downs that there was honestly no need to have anyone else in the cast. With that said, it’s crazy that they all seem to be over all of the past drama. It was surprising last season on RHOA when NeNe crashed the group vacation and got along perfectly with former frienemy Sheree and it’s also crazy how Sheree and Kim were able to put their issues behind them and actually be friends again.
We’ve been ranking all the Real Housewives from every season, every franchise and its finally down to the final few. The queens of Bravo, if you will. Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 of our ranking.
What separates a good Housewife from a great one? For me, it’s the longevity of their dramas. Will their actions or comments forever define a franchise as Teresa Giudice‘s table flip did for New Jersey, or NeNe Leakes‘ “Close your legs to married men, Wig!” on Atlanta? A great Housewife doesn’t necessarily have to be likable, but she does have to be memorable, and defining. When you think of a particular show which Housewife comes to mind.
It’s definitely good to be a Biermann. Not only do they get to star on a reality TV show about their family, but they also get to enjoy some tropical vacations thanks to Kroy Biermann (and/or the Bravo network). Kroy, Kim Zolciak, and their four oldest children are enjoying themselves in Turks and Caicos.
It definitely was good timing for a vacation considering that this is the first season Kroy wasn’t playing for the Atlanta Falcons who were in the Super Bowl this year. It also seems like a comforting place to be after the Falcons ended up losing. Either way, it seems like the Biermanns are the real winners here.
