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

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.
