Kim Zolciak is out to prove that she's more than just "the white girl" from Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta." The past couple of years have been epic for the reality star that we first came to know as NeNe Leakes' bosom buddy. Kim was known on the hit TV show for being a wig wearing, wine drinking, chain smoking diva. Now she's known more for being a zany mom and wife.
Kim's "RHOA" experiences were not without controversy. Race entered the discussion around her more than once. When NeNe called Kim's BFF and assistant Sweetie her "slave," social media exploded with fans for and against Kim. On the past ATL season, high drama sprung up around castmate Cynthia Bailey's remarks on a South African vacation that she couldn't see Kim cuddling an African baby. Kandi Burruss concurred and then Sheree Whitfield called and told Kim. Ouch!
Drama is nothing new when it comes to Kroy Biermann's new wife, however. Let's not forget that she entered the show as a sugar baby. Her "Big Papa" was never seen on camera but his presence was there nonetheless. Diamond rings, cars, and other displays of the consumerism and conspicuous consumption of the Atlanta show were Kim's spoils of love.
Kim and NeNe fell out when "the moose," as she calls her ex-bestie, attacked her. It was a shameful display on camera. Whenever a grown woman on any of these shows feels the need to physically put their hands on another human being, it's always disgraceful. The war between the "Talls" and the "Smalls" was on.
Although Kim shorted her fellow "Small," Kandi, by not sharing the wealth from her pop single "Tardy for the Party," the two remain fast friends. Kandi even makes a wedding shower appearance on Kim's current spinoff series, "Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding." Whether Kim pulls a Bethenny Frankel with a permanent series of her own is anyone's guess.
This brings us to Kim's current unveiling. Her wigs have had a storyline of their own from the beginning. The blonde belle has had her tresses pulled by her fellow extension lover, Sheree. In addition, the wigs had their own seat for the ride to her new mansion. NeNe once showed her disdain by rocking Kim's store-bought hair in mockery.
Last night, Kim de-wigged for all to see. Surprise! Her natural hair is thick and lovely. As she's been saying from the beginning, wigs are just a fun means of expression for her.
Work it, Zolciak!
