Kim Zolciak Biermann

I was totally on board when Kim Zolciak got her Real Housewives of Atlanta spin off Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding to plan her wedding. Those specials are usually interesting to me. But, when her spin off got its own spin off, Don’t Be Tardy, I was not sure if Kim would still be entertaining if she was not arguing with other women tugging at her wig.

Surprisingly, Kim, her husband Kroy Biermann, and their six kids provide some cute entertainment. And  am not the only one who’s liking this show. Kim posted on Instagram about the record high rating the premiere episode scored.


As much as I live for the cat fights in all of the Real Housewives cities, it is nice to know that a more family-oriented show is doing really well. Sure, this isn’t a conventional family by any means and Kim is almost always saying something in appropriate, but it’s very rare that a show with no controversy is actually enjoyable to watch. Props to Kim, the Biermann fam, and the people who edit this show. No wonder it’s doing pretty well.

There are so many reality TV shows these days, so Don’t Be Tardy has to compete with a lot of other options. The Bravo network’s Twitter page for the Bravo Communications Team had a post about the record ratings: “PARTY OVER HERE @Bravotv’s #DontBeTardy premiere toasted to a 4 yr high in all key demos with 1.1M P18-49, 1.2M P25-54, and 2M total viewers.”

Obviously it’s a big deal that the ratings for the show are doing really well and I definitely get why Kim was excited about it. 

Kim took a screen shot of that tweet and posted that as an image on Instagram along with her own words: “As I sat here and read this the tears streamed down my face! Thank you! I’m honestly so grateful for all my friends that supported me, my fans that have always believed in me, and my family that always sticks by me. I feel so blessed and I do believe in always following your heart, it never lies!!” 

I had no idea that Don’t Be Tardy was this popular. Good for Kim and the family, especially while Kroy is in the middle of figuring out his own employment situation with the NFL.
