The Don’t Be Tardy season finale is here and we begin with Kroy Biermann working out to get ready for the Atlanta Falcons training camp. “Eye of the Tiger” would be appropriate background music as Kroy is literally using every single machine in their home gym to get back into shape. Even their ab roller isn’t collecting dust. Impressive!
Meanwhile, Kim Zolciak is sending flip phones (how about a Dropbox video from their own phones?? Cheaper option!) to everyone that has helped Kroy with his recovery and will make a video of well wishes for him. The video will be playing at his surprise party later that week. She is also going to fly all of those people out to their home to attend the party in-person. Kim starts off the video taping their nanny, Lana, and her ode to Kroy…er, Mr. Kroy. Lana is more thankful that she has lasted as long as she has as their nanny but wishes Mr. Kroy the best of luck in camp. Amazing.
On this week’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann are packing for the the big surgery to be had in Miami. They’re going over their checklist with all the kids and Sweetie Hughes. I have to say the pair of pink pants that Kim is wearing are quite possibly the tightest pants I’ve seen in a LONG time. Ariana and Brielle are reluctantly listening to Kim bark out orders while wearing headbands that are cute but also not cute. I can’t decide. It’s like trying to make fetch work – and I’m not feeling it.
Anyway, Kim is excited about her new boobs and tummy even thought the girls reassure her she is beautiful regardless of any enhancing that she wants to get done. Kim’s turning her hernia operation in an episode of Extreme Makeover, but hell, I don’t blame her for knocking out the hernia thing and packing new boobs and a tight tummy in the same punch. She’s certainly efficient!
On last night’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy, we’re back at the campfire and waking up to the aroma of fresh bacon sizzling on the grill compliments of Kroy Biermann (love him!).
The gang gathers around the tent for breakfast after their first night in the woods. Activity of the day – fishing! The kids go digging for worms and off they go to the lake. Kim Zolciak, although looking ridiculous in her overstuffed plush robe, appears to be cozy and wait for it….enjoying herself! Ariana, Brielle and KJ are also enjoying themselves to Kim’s surprise.
On this week’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy, we open to nanny Lana prancing around the house listening to motivational recordings about how to love yourself. Once she steps into the kitchen (aka the lion’s den), where the Biermanns are enjoying lunch, she is inundated with comments about how she needs to get her butt out there and start dating. Lana is nervous because her last date didn’t go over so well with the guy taking his teeth out and all. Dear lord, Kim Zolciak needs to get Lana on Instagram ASAP.
Later that week, they are outside decorating her home for an intimate baby shower (consisting of Kim’s family and her staff, a little weird, but I’ll roll with it) for her dear friend, Jen. They briefly flash pictures of Kim and Jen from back in the day and I hope Kim posts more of them on her Instagram/Twitter feed! Kim attempts to convince Jen to get her placenta into pills to prevent PPD and it’s a tough sell for Jen. However, when she finally delivers, she eats the placenta smoothie and yum! She thinks it’s delish. Does this actually work?
In this week’s new episode of Don’t Be Tardy, the Biermanns are hitting the white sandy beaches of Destin as they finally have a clear sunny day (Day 4) while on Spring Break.
They’re certainly enjoying the fun in the sand as Kim Zolciak notes their home afforded them a private beach. Hmmm…I can see people, lots and lots of people directly next to them and more homes and hotels where it looks like public access to “their” beach (Am I missing something?). Brielle wants to go for a joy ride on the jet ski and Kim says “No” because she doesn’t want to worry about anything happening to Brielle. There still is a bit of tension lurking between Kim and Kroy Biermann from their argument last night about how in-tune Kim is to Brielle’s teenage growing pains (drinking, drugs, etc.) Kim and Kroy are taking the twins for a stroll on the beach to smooth things over and remind each other how much they love each other and how crazy raising 5 more kids will be (ya think??!!!).
On last night’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy, it’s a sunny day in HOTlanta while Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann are enjoying an afternoon playing with the kids in their driveway. This could be my favorite scene of the episode as I adore seeing the family having a leisurely time WITHOUT technology. Brielle begs Kim to take the Range Rover out for a spin and she is brutally denied and downgraded to the gold Honda because she’s already banged up the expensive cars. I take that back, I actually love and appreciate this segment the most. Good for Kroy and Kim not catering to Brielle’s whining.
Later that day we see Kim and Sweetie chatting about dieting or rather, not dieting as Sweetie enjoys her miniature salad (yeah, where was the dressing? Dry salad is my idea of what meals would be like in Hell.) and she imparts a few words of nutritional wisdom onto Kim. Kim is having none of it – unless the advice is topped with Reese’s Pieces and Skittles. Kim’s idea of lunch consists of cookies and cakes and what the?? Are we 10 years old? I love me a good Sprinkles cupcake once in a while, but not seven of them for dinner.
Sweetie never appeared on Don't Be Tardy because Kim fired her, then rehired her, and then Sweetie quit to go back to school. Well apparently Kim and Sweetie are up to their old hijinks because they are mysteriously filming something together!
It's been how many seasons now? I think everyone on the planet knows not to cross Ms. NeNe Leakes. Clearly Kandi Burruss hasn't gotten that memo. Like her or not (and I waiver–loved her, didn't like her so much, she's definitely growing on me again), the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is one of the franchise's biggest break-outs, and it was her hard work and hustle that made it happen. She took her gig on Bravo and surpassed all the cookbook writers, spin-off ladies, and talk-show hopefuls. NeNe has arrived, and she's a bona fide star. If you'd told me this would happen three years ago, I would have laughed at you while singing in a limo. If you tried to convince me of the same a year ago, I'd just yell "Wig" at you and tell you to close your legs to married men. You have to admit, the lady has one-liners!
Maybe it's her brashness, her biting honesty (she's the only one who proudly owns up to stripping in the past), or unapologetic nature, but NeNe has become a force to reckoned with among all of the housewives. To be quite honest, I'm still a little surprised that she stuck around this season to cause drama given her new presence in Hollywood. I'm equal parts terrified of her and want her to be my friend…of course, maybe I want her to my friend because I'm so scared of her. Regardless, call me Neenster!
