Before the scary weekend spent in the hospital with her son, Kim Zolciak was a guest on The Real, which aired today. Kim sets the record straight on the rumors of daughter Brielle Biermann getting butt implants and also addresses her return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta – it’s not a done deal just yet, despite reports stating otherwise! She also shares what we can expect this season on Don’t Be Tardy – she teases there’s something big going on!
On returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim explains, “I’m in talks, but I don’t want to come back full time. I have Don’t Be Tardy, so why would I want to do that? I would do both.” She explains that full time would mean “the whole season, reunion. No.”
When asked if she’d like to just do guest appearances here and there, she says, “a few of them. Listen, they pay, so…. I got six kids to feed, honey. I’m not dumb.”
Love her or hate her, you can’t argue that the self-proclaimed Puerto Rican princess is highly entertaining. Whether she’s dogging her ex Stevie J. (or “Stevie Lame” as she calls him) or calling out her co-stars, Joseline Hernandez is always over the top.
When asked what’s going on in her love life, Kenya “confesses” that Matt is 16 years younger than her. She says he’s “6’7″, chocolate, and full of muscles.” Adding, “He’s about 16 years younger than me. So there is quite an age difference, but he’s wonderful. He’s kind, he’s sweet, he’s intelligent. And he loves me.”
Phaedra shared that Mr. President, who is now 3 years old, had some issues last Halloween and decided that this year he wanted a totally unique costume so nobody else can copy it! “Last year Mr. President, my baby, had a Halloween meltdown so this year he said he’s going as a plant. He said ‘no one will have my costume if I’m just a plant’.”
On helping out with the renovation of her Atlanta home: “I found this shell of a house. Dilapidated, it was about to fall over, but the bones were good and it was a modern home, which is less than 1% in Atlanta, so I bought it right away. I began this extensive renovation. I mean, I had no plumbing, no lighting, nothing in there. So I basically built it from the ground up. I even did things with my own hands, like my fireplaces. There’s a lot of love that went into the home and a lot of work.”
Will we see the demise of her marriage to Peter play out on this season of RHOA? “Yes, you will see it play out. Peter and I have always been very transparent in our relationship and it’s worked for us and against us at the same time. But, just being on the show, I think it’s important for us to keep it real, like you guys do [laughs]. So, yes you will see it play out and um, it’s kind of hard because we got married on the show. We’re the only couple that actually got married on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and to have to go to through, you know, a divorce on the show, it’s not easy, but I think the only thing more tragic than divorce is being in something that’s not working anymore.”
On dating, she took the Kenya Moore approach by giving a bit of a non-answer about whether she’s seeing anyone: “I go from one moment wanting to be in love and get married again. And then somebody will do something and I’m like ‘you know what? I’m just dealing with Porsha’.” I’m translating that as “No, I’m not dating.”
Has she made up with Kenya Moore? She doesn’t exactly say straight up and instead talks about the reunion incident. “I feel like at that moment, I gave a bully power. I’ve vowed to never let that happen again. ‘I give you nothing.'”
Kenya Moore is making the press rounds this week as she promotes the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, her gig on Celebrity Apprentice and her new hair care line. Kenya popped by yesterday to chat with the ladies of The Real and dished on how she deals with the drama of reality TV and much more.
First Kenya shared the craziest thing she ever did: she says it was coyote hunting with an ex and she felt guilty after.
How does she handle the hate and drama of being on RHOA? “I’m just a person that has high self esteem because I have accomplishments that no one can take away from me. I am who I am and what I bring to the table is what I bring. No matter what they say, they can’t destroy me.”
