Weddings can bring out both the best and the worst in people. Kim Zolciak saw both of those traits during her big Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding special last night, that documented her big walk down the aisle to become Mrs. Kroy Biermann. And while some brides have to deal with snarky bridesmaids or uncooperative cousins, it was Kim's mom who stirred the pot -- enough so to have her forcibly removed by security, resulting in some of the biggest wedding mama drama we've ever seen.
The flames were fanned all season long, with Kim growing frustrated with her mother along the way to the big wedding day, but when she demanded to wear one of Kim's pairs of shoes prior to the ceremony, you could tell it lit a fuse in Kim. Then, post-nuptials, Kim's mom and aunt refused to use the $5,000 porta-potty that Kim had rented for the occasion, instead wanting to use a bathroom inside the house -- which was strictly off-limits to all guests ... even the mother of the bride.
That didn't go over very well, and the mom and sis forcibly snuck their way into the house to relieve themselves. And it just so happens they used the bathroom in Kim's bedroom, where her son KJ was sleeping peacefully. When confronted by Kroy, he got a big old "f--- you" -- literally -- during his own wedding party. That was the final straw, causing the newlyweds to have security remove the duo from the party.
Kim even took to Twitter during the show on Thursday night, explaining: "I was so upset at my mom drama allll day long it just got to be too much! I spent hours dealing with the drama!"
Kim and Kroy acted in the moment, but we want to know from you: Was it the right move, or was it not that big of a deal and Kim & Kroy should have just moved on and let them stay? Tell us below!
I don't understand what has become of the generous gesture that hosting has been since houses had indoor plumbing. Or for that matter, roping off a part of your house as though part of it were a museum exhibit which has rooms we can look at but not enter because of the irreplaceable objects in certain rooms of historical buildings or museum exhibits such as Julia Child's original kitchen nw housed at the Smithsonian. What does it speak of the most basic rules of hospitality that anyone would invite guests to their homes yet not allow themselves to use the powder room? I understand not wandering through bedrooms where babies are sleeping to upstairs en suite private bathrooms, but to invite guests and make the rule "but you may not enter to use my downstairs powder room" is just incredibly gauche. The rule for hosting any event is that you welcome guests by making them even more comfortable than you have ade yourself in your home. The only reason to remove guests is that through their out of control behavior, they are mortifying, embarrassing, or endangering your other guests! What kind of people do not let their own guests, especially their aunts and mothers, use the downstairs powder room whose PURPOSE is to accommodate thei guests they have invited to their homes? This just shows that Kim's real invitation to her guests was, "Come look at ME and feel grateful you got to gaze upon me." It was definitely NOT, "Welcome to my home where I appreciate your kindness in sharing in my family's day of joy." It is the opposite of hospitality. If she is this fastidious or germ-phobic, she could have hired industrial crews to clean her downstairs bathrooms and replace the toilet seats the next day. I certainly feel that Kim's a$$ has sat on much more unsavory things than most of her guests have.
Of course, they had to have her leave. "Mom, couldn't you let your daughter have ONE day? It seemed that no matter what Kim did, Mom wanted to be "in charge". I wish Mom would grow up. I thought it disturbing that some of the rest of Kim's family (especially the aunt) went along with with Mom. I wish Kim, Troy and all of the children, a very happy future!
Now, while I am not a fan of Kim K (didn't like how she treated Kandi with royalties from the "tardy" song) and promised myself that I would not watch DBTFTW, I have to agree with the decision to kick Mommie Dearest out of the wedding festivities. Kroy proved to me and I'm sure to most of the DBTFTW viewers just how classy he was when he #1, didn't kick Karen and her Sister-in-crime out himself. He had every right to after Karen dropped the F-You on him, not once but twice on HIS wedding day. And #2, refused to taint Kim's day any further by repeating what he overheard Karen and Sis, Kim bashing (could Mom have a drinking problem???). Kroy's parents raised him right and Kim and her girls are truly blessed to have him in their lives. Then, Karen returns to the party knowing she acted an A$$ and tries to recruit family members on the "I just wanted to go pee" train. I hope the ones who left with her got a chance to see the video (and we know the video only showed a little piece of the true drama Kim had to deal with) and were revealed the truth. Now, don't you wish you had stayed and partied the night away, instead of bashing Kim all the way home? Hell Mom should be ashamed of her actions and of being jealous of your daughter (yes, the daughter you raised) for being fortunate enough to have a life aspired by many. You did good Kim and Kroy, that was no way to start off a life together. You cut out the cancer's (cuz there were two of them). Here's to a drama free life filled with an abundance of blessings!
I agree that kim and Kroy did the right thing! Her mother was very very rude and disrespectful! Didn't even care about her grandson sleeping or being safe! Karen just wanted to start trouble, she said it herself that she wanted to draw a line in the sand! It's a shame that her mother is such a selfish person! I felt sorry for Kim's dad.
My mother knows how to behave and Kims does not. She caused a scene and was blatantly disrespectful to her daughter on her wedding day. If she stayed she would be fussing about what happened all night long! Geez, what's so horrible about using a $5000 porta potty. Get over yourself and use it!
I think Kim and Kroy did the right thing. Her mother knew the rules and the reasons why the house was off limits and showed nothing but disrespect for both Kim and Kroy. Then to go upstairs and show even more disrespect by talking mess about the two of them in THEIR home, in THEIR bathroom, wearing a dress that your DAUGHTER BOUGHT for you, and then wake up your grandson (without regard and you were laughing) tells me that GRANDMA didn't care about anything but herself. Then after being asked to leave, you couldn't just gather up enough class to just go...she had to draw MORE ATTENTION to HERSELF by telling everyone drawing attention away from the bride and the groom, and make it ALL ABOUT her.
I don't blame them at all her mother was completely out of line. Who are they that they can't use a $5000 porta potty. They way she talked to Kroy was completely out of line.
My mom and I seem to have a difference of opinion in regards to how Kim treated her mother. My mom believes that Kim should have pulled her mother aside and talked to her instead of kicking her out, and frankly I don't agree. Kim's mother should have realized how stressful a wedding can be, especially when you have as much going on as Kim did that day. Someday if I have a daughter and she requests that everyone at the wedding use a port-o-potty instead of going inside of her house, I am not going to Bi%^* and moan about it. A Bride should be allowed to be the worst or best person she can be on her wedding day, and those attending the wedding should just put up with it. It is only one day people! There are 364 days of the year to curse the newly married bride out, or scream about burning the house down like Kim's mother did. By the way... Congratulations Kim and Kroy.
I think Kim & Kroy had every right to have her Mother removed. She was extremely rude, causing a scene and using screaming foul language. They were thinking of no one but themselves (Mother & Aunt)! I felt badly for Kim's Father and concerned about his driving home - he was quite intoxicated!
