Don't Be Tardy for the Recap

Episode 7: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor is relieved that seeing Kim's real hair didn't bring on the apocalypse.

May 31, 20120

The riddle of the Housewives sphinx was finally answered when we got a peek under Kim Zolciak's wig. Luckily seeing Kim's real hair didn't bring about the apocalypse, and Kim's big day is nearly upon us!

Drug Bust

Where has Febe been all season? She is a delight. While Kim is freaking out about her illness, Febe keeps her calm. "Take it easy, it's going to be a nice day." Perhaps she's new, but Kim's not going to be taking anything easy a day before her wedding. It's a lovely sentiment nonetheless, Febe.

So Kim's somehow keeping it together despite having a fever of 102. Febe rolls in to save the day with the customary care package -- tea, soup, and about 500 prescription drugs. Seriously, how sick was Kim that she was prescribed so much medication? If she's that ill, she should probably quarantined somewhere until the last minute possible.

Of course Kim's biggest concern is that somehow the drugs are going to make her look fat. Among the myriad warnings on prescription drug labels, I don't think I've ever seen one that says, "May induce temporary plumpness." These concerns are of course all addressed to Febe as if she's a pharmacist. She didn't seem to think it would be an issue so long as she takes them one at a time, and I believe her. Febe wouldn't lead Kim astray.

Side note: If Kim's that sick, she probably shouldn't be offering spritzes from her nasal spray to anyone.

I was suprised how much better her real hair looks. The wigs are really too heavy looking on her and make her look much older than she really is. She is way prettier without the wig. I wish her and Kroy the best of luck in their marriage

Kim- If you have a million dollars for a wedding, $400,000 for a bracelet, and $150,000 for Kroy's sports car, you should have $54,000 for all of the custom made furniture Kendra bought for the one room. Quit being a deadbeat and pay your bills. Maybe Big Poppa will give you and Kroy a loan to move into your next dream home. You have lost it as soon as you got it.

Real hair? No way, it's too long to fit under a wig. Even capping it she would need a much larger wig than the ones she wears. That is not hair that has been under a wig for hours at a time.

I agree with everyone that Kim looks fantastic without the wigs. They don't look real and yes, I also agree the wigs make her look heavier. Her natural hair is so much healthier looking and real. I wish Kim all the best in her marriage with many years of well deserved happiness. You Rock Kim!

I loved the way you looked w/o the wig on, It does make you look younger. Your little man KJ is sooo adorable.

Kims hair looks very nice. I don't think it fits her current gimick of trashy hair mouth and clothes. Maybe she wants to be a little more classy since she met Kroys Mom. Which is a good statement for her love for Kroy/Money. Her hair was freshly cut heathy and beautiful. Who cut her hair?

WOW!!! Kim's natural hair is so BEAUTIFUL!!! It looks SOOOOOOO much better than her wigs! Finally, she looks her age! Those wigs cover half of her beautiful face. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE HOW PRETTY SHE IS!!!

Kim, Your real hair is gorgeous!!! The wigs make you look about 20 lbs heavier.... You should consider at least trying to go natural - I guarantee you will get compliments & offers for media events / modeling... Think of it as "going " green!

Another vote for looking younger and prettier without the wig!

I think Kim is a beautiful woman period. But she is MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL WITHOUT the wigs!!! KJ is such a smart baby!!! And Kroy never go into a courtroom, or a lab to get a DNA test for KJ, because HE IS DEFINITELY YOUR KID!!! He looks EXACTLY like you!!! I would love to see some baby pics of you. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to tell the two of you apart. The only way would be because of the date of how the picture was taken. (e.g. Polaroid, 110 film, 35mm).

I don't get the wig thing at all. You look so much younger and better with your own hair. The wigs look fake and make you look more like a comic book charater. If you were ill, bald or had horrible hair, I could understand...why don't you just let your hair grow really long if that's the look you are going for but honestly no one has ever believed that you are in your early 30"s because the wigs age you.

You are stunning without your wig. I get why you wear them but you really don't need to. You are also the luckiest chick on the planet. You obviously did something right to find Croy. Wow!!!!!! is he the best ever. Good luck to the both of you and I hope your future holds nothing but good things for the two of you.

Actually i thought Kim was very pretty without the wig. With the wigs she looks pretty but it also looks way over the top

I understand wanting to jazz up the hair with a wig every now and then but I LOVED LOVED LOVED Kim's real hair. She looked so classy.

Kim's real hair is great. If Derrick J hasn't seen it in over a year, who has been doing her hair?

WOW, Kim, you have BEAUTIFUL hair. I Love It. I think you are even more beautiful without the wig. And you are so my favorite housewife ! :)

Kim, Your hair is good. Your wigs are wonderful. No big deal - relax everyone. You are a good friend, lucky Jen. It probably would have been better if, when you asked her to be maid of honor, she would have explained her feelings about it then but whatever, she tried. Kim, Kim, Kim; your landlords are not to be believed. Maybe just give them the agreed upon amount, pending resolution of the overage. If I were your attorney that is what I would say - then there would be no reason beyond harassment that your landlords would be acting out and they would have to be quiet. I think it is very low-life to use an opportunity, such as the wedding that means so much to you, in order to pressure you. Don't put up with it. It is horrible ethics. Get that house purchased and put them out of your life. xo

Who is to say that she didn't put a wig on after everyone left the room? How do we know that it is her real hair? She had enought time to put on another (shorter) wig after everyone left the room. Just say'n.

On my wedding I had a fever and was feeling a little sick, my fever wasn't that high, but I knew I wasn't at my best. Anyhow, after the wedding I was good, I guess cause everything had been done and over with. You are one of my favs from the housewives and Kandy because ya'll keep it real. So happy for you

What a let down on seeing her real hair. It is lovely but looks just like those wigs she wears all the time. I think she should wear her real hair more often.

I know it's too late for the wedding, but Kim really should have gone Au-Nat-u-rale for her wedding. Just as Kroy adjusted his hairstyle for her because she expressed that she liked the look (I caught that... I was like "Dang, she got him!" lol), she should get comfortable with what he likes. Her hair is beautiful and there is nothing like a woman who does the best she can with what God gave her. It's one thing to wear wigs from time to time because she likes them, but it's another to use it as a coverup of an insecurity that she has yet to shake. I know she had a health scare that started this fad, and I'm sure that the health issue- whatever it was- affected her hair, but it's high time to get over it. The reality is that none of those wigs hold a candle to her own hair, regardless of the length. She is a beautiful woman and she really needs to stop looking for another definition of beautiful to obtain. God made you beautiful Darling... accept it, appreciate it, and project it. Appreciate what you have and you will be fine...

Good luck to Kim & Kroy and their marriage journey with their family. God bless them all...

Kim, I know it took a lot of courage to expose your real hair. Unfortunately it would have been more of a triumph for you if you acutally exposed just that, your real hair! It was very obvious that you donned a wig for your big reveal. Since this is a television program where ratings mean a paycheck or not, it is understandable that you would only want to be viewed in the most favorable light. The reality in this "reality show" is you must remain relevent to continue to take care of your children as well as you have. Although, I would've liked to see you expose yourself in a way that could possibly help/inspire other woman, there is no judgment since this is a short ride of fame continue to play until your time is up:)! God Bless

That is just another wig. Who is she trying to fool.

Her hair is lovely but it also has been styled. So who has been coloring & styling her hair???

I think Kim's real hair looks fabulous. She looks so much softer, and her pretty eyes are more pronounced. I say loose the wig Kim. Your face is too pretty to distract from.

I don't believe that was Kim's real hair she showed. Looked like a wig to me. I think she was just tired of people asking her all the time, so she put a shorter wig on.

Kim looks 10 years younger without the wigs! I don't get it, she tends to look older than she says she is and the wigs just add to it. The softer look is more flattering.

Gurl----I love you do death! But I cannot believe you have that beautiful head of real hair and choose to cover it up with wigs! You look so much younger with your real hair and I see how people could start taking you a little more serious if you GET RID OF THE WIGS!

I could not disagree with you more about Kim's hair and it looking like a wig. She look much younger/slimmer and all around more natural. Plus, I loved the haircut ala "Rachel-Friends."

Kim's real hair is beautiful and makes her look younger and perkier. The real thing is much better than all that long, over-abundance of wig hair hanging all over her face.

Hey Kim, Great hair. I have finally gotten the picture for my hair dresser of what cut I want. Your real hair. Thanks Babe.

Kim your real hair is beautiful.....You can actually see your face which is very beautiful.....you should wear it more often and let the wigs rest some.....hope you have a beautiful day.....

I still doubt that's Kim's real hair, she adjusted it a bit too much. Kim seemed to be sporting some extensions in that shot where she claim her real hair was exposed. This show is far too contrived for my interest.

Absolutely Stunning.....

Why not do both? I LOVE LOVE LOVE your real hair! But if the dress looks better with the longer hair then wear the best wig....and then take it off and wear your real hair for the rest of the time.

I am so happy for you Kim. For all the Haters out there, this must be a terrible night for them, the fact that you looked so damn cute without one of your wigs. I do enjoy the way you wear your wigs - they do not look so fake to me. Almost all the house wives have either wigs, etensions, etc. but yours have been the prettiest. But your real hair is HOT and ever so cute and sexy. So glad Bravo and Kim went ahead and let us see her hair. She looks so much like her daughters, almost like an older sister in the real hair.

KIM ! What the hell are you screwing around with those larger-than-life wigs that you are ALLLLways moving out of your face when your real hair is absolutely ADORABLE and sexy and Looks GREAT ? It Perfectly frames your face and I'll bet you're not Always Messing with it like you are with those wigs. My God, the way you've been covering up all this time, I thought your hair must have looked like crap....What a Tease. :( You are crazy if you wear a wig for your wedding.

KIM...KIM...KIM...BURN THOSE DAMN WIGS. WEAR THEM OCCASIONALLY FOR FUN, BUT NOT ALL THE TIME! You are so hot with your own hair. You look younger, prettier....can you not see how much prettier you are with your own hair? REALLY cute cut...color looks great...I'm telling you, dump the wigs and go with your hair, girl! I bet 99% of people will agree, 99% because there will always be one ass---- ;-)

Kim, I have to admit, and I am sure I was NOT alone, but I could not wait to see the "Hair" reveal. I had no idea what to expect, but your real hair exceeded my expectations. You looked absolutely beautiful, I LOVED the style, the cut, and I think it gives you a much more sophisticated look than your long wigs. I know you love everything BIG, but girl I think its time to wash those wigs right out of your hair and stick with the real deal. I loved the style so much that I am downloading and pick and bringing it with me to my next haircut appointment. Thanks for the peek, it was worth the long long wait. Congrats on your marriage to Kroy. He is an absolute GEM.

Kim looks soooooooooo much better WITHOUT her wig. I cannot understand why she wears it. She looks amazing without it. (if that's really her hair) she doesn't realize how unnatural that mop of long hair looks on her. It is a shame she can't see how much better she looks without it.
