NeNe Leakes has been endorsing a Kim Zolciak comeback on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Understandably, Kim is hesitant to jump back in. She did not come across well (at all) during season 10. If you recall, she claimed, “racism isn’t all that real” during that reunion episode after feuding with Kenya Moore and NeNe.
Sure, she’s a mom of six who has mouths to feed and an RHOA paycheck can help with that. But, at least she has her own show with her family called Don’t Be Tardy, which just seems way more enjoyable to film.
Everything about 2020 has been unexpected. In the list of 2020 oddities is the revived friendship between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak. They were bitter enemies on the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion, and many times before that.
While viewers have seen NeNe and Kim enjoy some fun times together, for the most part, we’ve just seen them fighting and shading each other to filth. That’s why it’s kind of surprising that NeNe has been pushing for Kim to return to RHOA. She didn’t just respond to one random question naming an alum that she’s missed. NeNe has spoken out about this several times. She went live with Kim on Instagram. During that session (Yes, I watched. Judge me), NeNe mentioned multiple times that she wanted to start a YouTube venture with Kim.
Turning 18 is a milestone for most teens. They can vote, get their driver’s license (depending on the state laws, of course), go off to war, start college, and… get their lips done. Wait. What? That wasn’t on your list of milestones? Mine neither.
Well, Kim Zolciak recently revealed that it was on her daughter Ariana Biermann’s. Of course, doing this is totally her prerogative. It’s just not a typical rite of passage for teens. Then again, this is the norm on Don’t Be Tardy.
The true origin of the Kim Zolciak and Kenya Moore feud is just so unclear. Kim left Real Housewives of Atlanta in the middle of Kenya’s first season. Then, she reappeared at the Chateau Sheree housewarming party and confronted Kenya for going into the still-unfinished basement. Kenya told her she looked like a duck because of her plumped-up lips, which was a fair comparison in all honesty.
The next season, things really came to a head at NeNe Leakes‘ white party. The partygoers all looked angelic in their all-white outfits, but Kenya and Kim did not behave like angels. At all. Kim questioned the legitimacy of Kenya’s then-secret marriage to Marc Daly. Then, Kenya accused Kim of pimping out her daughter Brielle Biermann for John Legend tickets. Never forget that now-deleted tweet Brielle supposedly wrote from Kim’s account asking Chrissy Teigen who Brielle has to “blow” for concert tickets. Kenya and NeNe were actually on the same side (for once) when they put Kim in her place during the Season 10 RHOA reunion. You remember that one, right? Andy Cohen told Kim that she brought “nothing positive” to the show and Kim said that racism wasn’t real. That was the end of Kim’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta, for now anyway. However, that hasn’t stopped her from commenting on the show’s cast members.
Sounds like a party! Maybe for some of you, getting some rad ink and making it rain for exotic dancers might be another Tuesday night. But for Ariana Biermann, aka “the good one”, it means a birthday! Kim Zolciak has raised yet another child to adulthood. Now the Don’t Be Tardy star only has four more kids to go… Yikes.
Ariana has been widely hailed as the most sensible out of the notorious Biermann clan. While she has morphed into a smaller replica of her mother, along with older sister Brielle Biermann, Ariana has remained focused on her grades and continuing her education. Which is a better option than
yachting finding random athletes to date as a career. Now that Ariana is 18, life will really begin. Kim shared what the family did to celebrate Ariana’s special occasion.
The consensus is kids are off limits in reality television, right? I completely adhere to this policy, as it is the fault of no child when their parents
exploit choose to have them filmed for a program. In the case of Kim Zolciak-Biermann, all six of her kids have grown up on television. When she started on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim was the single mom of Ariana and Brielle, both very young when introduced.
After Kim met and married former
man pro-athlete Kroy Biermann, the baby factory was open and ready for business. Kim’s show, Don’t Be Tardy followed the pair’s lives and procreation abilities. The couple produced KJ and Kash, along with twins, Kaia and Kane. We’re still waiting on little Koo Koo for Koko Puffs to be conceived. Along the way, Kim has received an epic amount of constructive criticism regarding her children. In the latest round of, “I’m a better Mom than you are…”, Kim is now defending applying make-up to her youngest daughter’s face. On the bright side, no needles were involved. Yet.
Kim Zolciak Biermann’s whole ask, believe, and receive schtick has really worked out. Kim parlayed being someone’s ALLEGED mistress on Real Housewives of Atlanta to the wife and mother of six with her own show. She managed to rope in a former NFL player, build her dream house, and have several facial renovations. As Kim kept birthing babies, viewers watched her brood grow on Don’t Be Tardy.
Fans of RHOA know Kim is no wallflower. Her kids aren’t shy either, raised in a household being constantly filmed. Brielle and Ariana Biermann have grown up in public. They’ve also been subject to ridicule and criticized for personal choices. If a celebrity parent chooses to purposely place their kid in the spotlight, any outbursts will be publicized. Entitlement is center stage and famous people often get a hall pass, despite their poor behavior. Recently the Biermanns found out that just because you think you’re above it all that doesn’t mean everybody else does.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills organized themselves around a new enemy, because that is the point of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills now. It has been for a few seasons! Someone is the target, and the rest of the women shield exposing their real lives by focusing their collective effort on how terribly they’ve all been wronged by this one person for some basically meaningless infraction. It’s tabloids in the suitcase, it’s stories in the tabloids no one reads….
Ever since Kyle Richards realized that the Twisted Sisters Richards would be the undoing of everything she has worked so hard to escape, she has become champion number one of this plan. She will literally hang Kim Richards out to dry by pinstriped suspenders and let Lisa Rinna call her “c–nty” than avoid getting mired down in the type of personal muck that could lift the giant felted wool hats right off to reveal whatever Kyle is hiding.
It will be interesting to see how Camille Grammer fares when faced with this – if it ever comes to pass given that the California Wildfires interceded in the cast trip, and Camille decided against attending the reunion.
