Kim Zolciak talks about the downside of being in the public eye.

on Apr 25, 2013 - The Dish0

Being a Housewife can come with some fabulous perks. Unfortunately, being in the public eye also comes with its own struggles. In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Don't Be Tardy... star Kim Zolciak talked about how difficult it is to protect her daughters from trolls on social media and bullying in school.

“My kids are obviously in the public eye and they have social media,” the mom of four said. “Back in the day, even six years ago with Housewives, something comes out, OK. My daughters didn’t have Twitter, so I could guard them. But now the stuff hits the press in 10 seconds. With my mom bashing me, it put my family in a bad place. And Brielle -- people in school say stuff to her.”

Kim is, of course, referring to her estrangement from her mother that will be featured on the current season.

Kim continues, "If people spend as much time doing something positive as they spend on the negative stuff, can you imagine what a better place this world would be?"

Here’s hoping Brielle doesn’t let the haters get her down.

Kim your girls are beautiful, well behaved girls...  Anyone who would bully a nice girl like Brielle has some serious issues!! I hope she learns to have thick skin!! And I really so hope you reconcile with your mom!! As soon as she got the courts involved you should have probably just called her!! Be an example to your daughters and be the bigger person!! You know how your mom is, unfortunately you can't change the fact that she is an eccentric!! and I'm sure much more! But she is your mom and the fact of the matter is, you treated her like a stranger at your own wedding!!

Watching Kim's daughter be so upset was very hard as my own son is bullied , not seeing Kim reach out too her daughter was hard for me .. I would fight anyone and have for my own children , and even looking too move out of state too fix our own problems as my son not in the eye of people like her daughter .. Kim, has got too watch her mouth , her actions and many other things she does as a mother because it will come back on each one of her children .. Her having no friends with even her husband team-mates is strange , she lets the world know her issues , so I feel badly for this child as she gets older .. Her own mom could not reach her , calling her lovely and pets names that Kim throws out there too each person does not make her daughter feel any more special , yes we only see a peek-a-boo into there life , but that peek can leave a life time of scaring too that young teen working her way too make her own story in her life .. A shame that Kim could be a great mom ,if she was not so busy showing her daughters that all we need in life is too keep a "man" .. Her mouth needs too be washed out n cleaned up .. Again we just get a small look and who knows if her daughters tears were real or if she has learned so well from her not too great mom how too cry all the time and get what she wants and fake it .. would be very sad another young girls life ruined due too these shows ... NeNe needs too really give Kim a wake up call ..

Watching Brielle cry made me shed a tear. Being a mom myself and my children had to deal with some bullying issues themselves, I knew every bit of emotion Kim felt watching her daughter breakdown and cry. I just don't understand how people feel that it is ok to emotionally abuse people and think its ok. Brielle be strong. You are beautiful and have family that loves you. (I am still crying...smh).

Those girls have good heads on their shoulders, and excellent senses of humor.  They need to laugh it off.  If one doesn't let it show that it bothers, they will find another target.  It's all just jealousy anyway, which is an ugly trait to have.  Ignore it and it will go away.

I agree, Kim!  There are too many haters in this world- that's what makes it an increasingly  toxic place, in every way.  What a waste.  Thank you and your daughters and husband for bringing some light here.  :)
