OK, Don’t Be Tardy fans and haters, we made it through another season of Kim Zolciak Biermann’s life, just barely. Between health scares and the stress of just living la vida Kim, some episodes, we were hanging on by a thread. Or so Kim would have us believe. She still managed to deliver us her most expensive baby yet, her skincare line Kashmere, which I’m sure is selling like hot cakes in the link of her Instagram bio. As for long suffering husband Kroy Biermann, his football career still hangs in the balance (although if you follow any Kim news at all, you already know he was signed and then released from the Buffalo Bills).
Since the launch of Kashmere, Kim has been having some “weird” symptoms that she’s chalking up to the stress of self promoting a skincare line while simultaneously having a birthday party. I mean, can you guys imagine the stress? And you thought your life was hectic *snort*. Anyway, this brings Kim to an appointment with her cardiologist.
After the season finale of Don’t Be Tardy tonight, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann were in NYC to hang out with Andy Cohen in the Clubhouse on WWHL. They discussed viewer concerns over their kids’ swearing, Kim’s possible nose job, and more! Kim even answered a few questions about her former Real Housewives of Atlantaco-stars.
Andy plays a montage of the Biermann kids and their potty mouths. Andy asks where they got those mouths and Kim laughs, “I have no idea.” (More on this later in the show)
Don’t Be Tardy opens with just another day at the Beirmann house and Kim Zolciak Biermann having a topless photo shoot in her pool as her four year old son watches. Kim is FINALLY ready to launch her new skincare line and of course, who would be a better spokesperson than her? Don’t answer that – it was a rhetorical question.
Since Kim is hosting a bunch of people from her skincare team in L.A., she has Tracey pull out the best conch possible to feed and entertain them by the same pool she just floated topless in. Kim goes on and on about how hard she has been working on this skincare line and how it’s a huge accomplishment for her to launch it. Never mind that we haven’t seen one second of footage of her working on any of it. I’m sure Kim’s idea of hard work is much different than the masses. I’m having a hard time concentrating on anything else about this scene after catching the sight of Kroy Biermann dressed in cut off jean shorts, or jorts, if you will.
If you watch Don’t Be Tardy, you know that Kroy Biermann is definitely the disciplinarian when it comes to his six kids with wife Kim Zolciak Biermann. He is not a man of many words, but he means every one that he says. He also has high standards, especially when it comes to what he expects from Brielle Biermann. The same goes for Brielle’s love life. Of course, Kroy has opinions about her new(ish) boyfriend Michael Kopech.
Brielle‘s been with her boyfriend, a Boston Red Sox minor-league pitcher, for a while at this point and we know Kim thinks Michael is a mini Kroy. But does Kroy himself feels the same way?
This week’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy is ripe with all kinds of change in the air. Kim Zolciak Biermann and Kroy Biermann are anxiously waiting to hear where Kroy will end up playing and the whole family is a tad on edge with the unknown. The only solution seems to be to throw money at the problem, which sounds about right.
Despite the stress going on around her, Tracey is cool as a cucumber, thanks to a new online relationship with a gal named Lexi. She met her on Instagram and apparently, knows almost nothing about her, even though they have been talking for a month and a half. Lexi lives in New York and Tracey has yet to join the year 2016 FaceTime her. Brielle Biermann expertly points out that Tracey is “SO old” and decides to move this relationship along with a FaceTime call. One fun fact Tracey forgot to ask in her relationship is how old Lexi is (25) and both Brielle and Tracey are shocked by this news but recover quickly enough to invite Lexi to Atlanta to see this sh*t show first hand spend some much needed time together.
Last night’s Don’t Be Tardy showcased a stressful time in the Zolciak-Biermann household. Teen angst was at an all time high. Kim and Kroy didn’t see eye-to-eye. Red solo cups were flung around with reckless abandon, and the phrase of all phrases was born (and continues to echo through my brain). Thank you, Bravo. Just thank you.
The episode begins with Kim and crew heading to an Atlanta studio. Kim has used Instagram to set up a dance lesson for Brielle, ChefTracey, and Shun. Everyone is wearing sexy heels, but poor Tracey is having a very hard time with her footwear. The lesson for today is some stripper dancing, and Kim is ecstatic that she can finally hang out with Brielle as besties and not just in the mother-daughter capacity. Not to mention, Kim loves some gyrating!
It’s been a while since Michael Strahan‘s controversial exit from Live With Kelly & Michael, but Kelly Ripa is still hosting the show alone. She’s had a plethora of different co-hosts, but they were only temporary and it doesn’t seem like the powers at be are anywhere close to choosing someone to take on that role. They should have just asked Kim Zolciak though, since she thinks Kroy Biermann would perfect.
Not only is Kim trying to start Kroy’s talk show career, but she is also pushing for her youngest daughter Kaia to have a modeling career even though she’s just two years old. Kim has taken this reality TV thing way further than any of us expected, so I feel like we shouldn’t underestimate her ways, but are her ideas a little too far-fetched this time around?
Last night’s Don’t Be Tardy incorporated so many of our favorite reality shows into a single episode: Top Chef inspired dishes, a RuPaul’s Drag Race inspired game of bingo, and the language heard on any given installment of Mob Wives. It was pretty amazing.
We begin with Access Hollywood’s Anthony, who introduces Brielle Biermann to Liz Hernandez, and she is beyond impressed by the fact Liz interviewed Oprah–the world’s most famous interviewer becomes interviewee! As Liz inquires about Brielle’s education, Brielle dodges questions about college. Liz tells Kim’s mini-me that she got her start at a college internship. Not shockingly, this revelation doesn’t send Brielle into an application frenzy.
