Don't Be Tardy for the Recap

Episode 9: Bravotv.com's Editor is in awe of the bathroom hygenine issues caused by Kim's wedding, but still feeling the love.

on Jun 13, 20120

The time has come. After setting multiple alarms, doing some dry runs, scheduling a wake up call, I was finally prepared to see Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann become husband and wife. 

It's been a short and storied road to the big day. There were dogs in wigs, men in heels evalutating porta-potties, wigless heads, and major drama between Kim and her mother. But hopefully Colin Cowie straightened his suit and was ready to create a day not just worth of Oprah, but worthy of the wig herself.

We pick up hours before Kim walks down the aisle, and things are no less hectic for Kim. While she's trying to prep her hair and makeup, Karen's panicking because her shoes have gone missing. Rather than resolve the issue on her own, she's got Kim on the hunt for the lost shoes. Something tells me digging through her closet is not what Kim envisioned herself doing right before her wedding.

Thankfully the shoe debacle is solved, and Kim can get back to prepping herself -- by brushing her teeth in full drag. Seriously? I know she was worried about her kickin' breath, but maybe she could have just popped a breath strip. I was terrified toothpaste was going to get every where!

Personally, I've been waiting forever for Kim's wedding, so I think her fiance owes everyone a wedding whether he wants to date Kim or not.

Personally, I think Kroy saying that he will work out at his work out room forever, and his fiance should work out at the gym forever of parallel lives forever is he doesn't want to date his fiance forever, because a secret manstealer lied about Kim dating a man after she dated Kroy, and caused Kim to subconsciously wear wigs forever, tons of make up forever, and more expensive clothing forever.

I thought it was completely disrespectful of Kim not to allow her own Mother & Aunt to use the inside restroom.  I never had much respect for the show & certainly not much for Kim, but it still lured me in & I continued to watch.  I have now lost total respect for Kroy too.  I'm glad it happened though so now everyone can see what tacky & low class looks like.  Please do us all a favor & make her go away.  What a waste of TV air space.

Kim, your wedding was amazingly beautiful. You did everything that you wanted and more on your special wedding day. When Kroy gave his committment not only to you but to your daughters as well...what can I say...so endearing. Kroy is a catch and I hope and pray that you two have a long, happy and wonderful marriage. Now to your mother....I realize that we just now saw your wedding, but, for your mother to behave in the manner that she did is and was repulsive. I for one would take a really long before I would even say Hi to her. She's your mother and hopefully you two have come to terms and at the same time I hope and I PRAY that she apologized to Kroy. Such disrespect she showed to him on your wedding night.

Karen is in a power struggle with Kim, due to jealousy. That woman is toxic, even if she is Kim's mother! Karen isn't going to win this battle, her own husband thinks she's a piece of work and he's married to her. Karen will soon find herself on the outside looking in, while Kim and Kroy go on with their lives. The dad seems to get along great with Kim and Kroy, is always around to help with projects, babysit the kids etc. He should move in with them and let Karen stew in her own juice. Being a mom (and I'm a mom too) doesn't give you a license to treat your children disrespectfully. Once you cross the line with your kids, all bets are off. Parents need to behave appropriately too!

Kim, I have to be honest. You were not my favorite on Housewives of Atlanta, but something happen after you meet Kroy you became a better person a more real down to earth person. I am happy for you and your family. You must be a good person for God to send you a man like Kroy. He loves you and your girls and that is a beautiful thing, giving the girls rings at the wedding. Your mom is jealous of you and you were right to throw her and your aunt out of the wedding. It was time to go when they threw the first F bomb. As long as you and your husband stick together no one can defeat you. May God bless and keep you all.

I could understand why Kim didn't want to make any exceptions regarding the bathrooms. But I think that whole drama scene could have been easily avoided. Her aunt and mother should have just accepted the rule that all guest were to use the porta-potty. I think since her mother is used to going to Kim's house frequently and she's the mother of the bride, that she's the exception. But no guest should be given special privileges. It's not like it was a disgusting, run down, infested porta-potty. They had nice and spacious ones. I will say that if it were my wedding and I had a luxurious home like Kim's, I would still allow guest to use my home bathroom. I would have allowed for one or two bathrooms near my reception space to be available for my guest to use. I wouldn't even invite people to my wedding that I couldn't trust in my home. All my guest would be family and close friends that I wouldn't mind being in my home. Or she could have simply had security directing guest to available restrooms if she didn't want guest roaming around her home. I would have preferred that rather than paying 5,000 for a porta-potty.

That was one the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen. I was really touched when Kroy also made a commitment with Kim's daughters too. Now that's what real men do! May God bless your marriage Kim & Kroy!

Kim did not say her mother could not use the indoor bathroom. It was the aunt who was turned away. You make one exception and then you have to make all exceptions. It's not like the bathroom facilities were bad - they were in fact very nice. I think Kim did the right thing. Her mom and aunt's behavior was outrageous. And I can't imagine what Kroy was thinking after he overheard them bashing them. Disgraceful. I thought Kim and Kroy were class acts and make a great couple. Shame on her mom and aunt.

Everyone seems to forget it was THE AUNT that caused all the problem. Then she had the nerve to act all demure. "She's the mother of the Bride." The Aunt got the Mother started, they both acted like low class idiots. They totally disrespected Kim and Kroy's rules. I don't blame them, they have to think about the security of their son. if the Port a Potties were good enough for the owner of the Falcon's, then they were good enough for the white trash Aunt!

The wedding was beautiful, especially when you guys said your vows. Kroy is so cute especially when he started to cry when Kim was walking down the aisle. I especially loved the way he gave both girls rings to make the family complete. Karen created such a scene, you would think being the Bride's mother she would act more respectful. You didn't see Kroy's parents acting out. They a lovely people and raised the great son. If I were you Kim I would try to get closer to Kroy's family because outside of your uncle your family is a bunch of wackos. Your father is loud and obnoxiouse and your mom looks like an old crow. Good luck and congratulations to you guys and the new baby coming soon.

I felt sorry for Kim and Kroy with the way her mother acted at that wedding! I do not blame them a bit for NOT wanting all those people traypsing through their house, using their bathrooms! I especially didn't blame them for wanting no one in there with the baby upstairs asleep. They knew that IF he was awakened by someone that someone would have to be taking care of him instead of enjoying their reception! Her mother was intending to create drama before the wedding ever got started and she just made sure that SHE acted up! Her mother craves attention and that is so obvious! Had they have let her aunt and mother into the house to use the bathroom; EVERYONE else would have wanted to go inside as well. Her mother was not at all understanding and really acted a COMPLETE FOOL!!! (Obviousy she thought that they were TOO GOOD to use the outdoor setup like everyone else, and she really pushed the envelope trying NOT to adhere to the rules that had been set up! Her mother acted like someone that had had too much to drink at the reception and just really feel sorry for all of them! I think it is going to be a long road to travel, for them to ever get on a good relationship again! I would have really been pissed if my mother acted like that at my wedding!

I was on the fence about tossing Karen out of the wedding until she told Kroy- F- you! She said that more than once to him and she's in his home!! At his wedding!! Breaking the rules everyone else is adhering to! Then I was not surprised to see her get escorted out. She acted like a child and this wasn't the first time she threw a fit - remember when she wrote a note to Kim saying she (Karen) would be sick the day of the wedding and also how she refused to go shopping for a dress? She acted like a spoiled brat throughout the whole wedding process-she had to make it all about her.

My dear Mom would never act that way!!

Good luck and happiness to the whole new Beirman clan!!

I commend Kim for throwing out her mom and aunt. Both are ungrateful especially Karen. How dare she call Kim names after everything she bought her for the wedding. Kim has done alright for herself and her daughters. I always liked kim. She tells the truth and some of the cast were angry with her because of it. I feel happy about their wedding and how Kroy loves all of them as his own. Not every man does that. It's rare. They will be happy. The poorta potty is not cheesy. Its really nice Ive been to one exacty like that at Barret Jackson in AZ. Looks just like a regular room with beautiful interior. I don't know why Karen would not want to use it and had to make a scene. how dare she try to ruin the wedding. Its was forseen. Kim and Kroy were thinking about their baby boy's security. They did the right thing. My mom acts out like that when she's not the center of attention. Makes everything and everybody miserable until she gets her way just like Karen. Ungrateful Karen.

Kim, you act like you are embarassed of your mom , which in turn makes her act the way she has in response. The women who's wombs you and Kroy came out of should have been allowed to use the indoor bathroom. It's about respect and doesn't matter if you paid a million $$$ for diamond encrusted outdoor toilets. KJ wouldn't have slept the whole night anyway w/the music and chatter a stone's throw away. I get the impression there is a long history there and that your mom may have some problems; however, you didn't treat her well through the whole process. Your big day or not.....doesn't give you a free pass to be thoughtless and mean. All that aside, it was a beautiful wedding....made me cry...and I wish you, Kroy and your growing family the best!

Congrats Kim and Kroy. What a beautiful wedding. Kroy, you are one Hell of a man to treat her two girls like that. The rings for them was so cool. I cried. As for Karen, what a piece of work! Not only did she deserve to be escorted out, but she lied about why. She was not telling the truth to people so they would be on her side. Maybe when they watch the footage they will realize what a liar Karen is.

Good luck to both of you. Many happy years to come!

The wedding was sweet and lovely. Kim's daughters were adorable and KJ has to be one of the cutest babies ever.

The bathroom episode was a powerplay on Karen's part. When you look at the amount of time that was involved in the fracas, it certainly wasn't a matter of urgency. I hate to call what they had porta-potties because they were much nicer and luxurious than most in-house bathrooms I've seen. Those facilities were much closer than the bathrooms in the house.

Through the entire episode, everyone spoke to Karen in a respectful tone of voice. When Kroy tried to explain to her that even his own family was using the rented facilities, Karen responded by throwing f-bombs at him and continuing to create a noisy scene, even though she knew her infant grandson was sleeping in the house. I think it's when she and her sister woke up the baby that Kim & Kroy lost it.

Whether Kim and Kroy were right or wrong, Karen and her sister should have used the rented facilities and not caused a massive scene disrupting the wedding. Discuss it after the wedding is over. Karen's actions were not the actions of a loving mother on her daughter's wedding day. (Personally, I suspect Karen was ticked that her husband was flirting and dancing with other women at the wedding and took it out on Kim and Kroy). I can understand her being asked to leave and being escorted if she didn't leave voluntarily. Her husband, btw, did not at any point speak up in support of his wife's behavior.

As for Rena F.'s comment about Kim wanting to be the center of attention, if one can't be the center of attention at one's own wedding, when can one be?Karen had her own wedding; this one was about Kim and Kroy and the kids, not Karen and it was very sweet before and after she let loose.

Kim and Kroy needed to throw their mother and aunt's butts out of the wedding. Karen has been wrapped a little too tight all season, and has disrespected Kim and Kroy again and again. She does seem envious of her own daughter and thought she was shouting a big F-YOU to Kim by going against her wishes. Kim is an adult, and her mother, and troublemaker aunt should have respected Kim's wishes. Bravo Kim and Kroy for standing up for yourselves. Maybe Karen's brains have been addled by all the booze.

Haven't really liked Kim for a few years but have to say with Kroy she isa different person. I have really enjoyed watching DBTFW. Good Luck Kim and Kroy.

I never ever comment on here but this time I was compelled. I realize this wedding was Kim's big day and she wanted everything to be perfect, but what she did to her own Mother is disgraceful! I don't think Karen deserved to be shuttled away from the wedding. I can't even wrap my brain around it. Good luck to you Kim and Kroy in your marriage. Hopefully you and your Mom have made up since 11-11-11. Remember what your pastor said? How significant the number 1 was? Well you only have 1 Mom.

I would have kicked my mom out if the circumstances were the same. Her mom was ridiculous. She thought she should get special treatment even though Kroy's family was playing by the rules. She is clearly jealous of the attention and fame Kim receives. She showed that with the whole "shoe" drama. It seems like that has probably been an issue long before Kim became famous.

The wedding was amazing, everything was great...but shame on you Kim and Kory that just was not nice the way you treated your mom remember what goes around come around, I didn't like that you seem to treat your mom with no not be very nice to your mom..

The sweetest moment aside from Kroy's vow to "snuggle" was when he surprised the girls with rings. He is the sweetest man and a great catch! I hope Kim appreciates him and goes above and beyond to please him...he is a great father and husband. A man like Kroy is like a very rare gem! Suggestion for Kim, surprise Kroy by taking cooking lessons and be a woman who can take care of her man in all ways...Kroy's mom is so sweet and would be a great resource for Kim to learn as she becomes a wife. Wishing the Bierbmann's all the best!!!

I really enjoyed watching Don't be Tardy for the Wedding and as I expected there was some drama. I think that Karen felt usurped by Kim as it was definitely Kim's day. Karen should have used the porta potties like all the other guests but I think Karen felt that since she was the bride's mother that she was an exception to the rule. It probably infuritated Karen when she was told by security that she could not enter the house to use the indoor plumbing and that set her off to threaten to burn the house down. Meanwhile she barged in anyways screaming and waking up the baby. Completely unacceptable behavior for a mother no matter what the circumstances. Babies need their sleep and a grandmother should respect this. Kim's wedding dresses were a potpouri of wedding dresses. The one where she walked down the aisle looked like she stepped out of Gone with the Wind. The second one was okay but a little cheesy for my tastes. The jump suit screamed "Jump Me Now"! The nicest thing I saw was when Kroy recognized the girls by giving them each a ring and that was the most touching moment. This wedding is over a million dollars and I got to say it didn't look it. Maye I would have to be there get the actual impact but it did not translate into big bucks.The table settings were beautiful but truthfully it is a backyard wedding glorified.

OMG I have never commented on anything but when she walked down that aisle and he got chocked up and then gave the girls the rings I lost it I cried like a baby so happy for them kind of makes you believe in fairy tales theres a prince out there for everyone

Kim's mom's shoes were too big and were supposed to be exchanged for the right size and her mom never said she was burning down the house, she said bringing down the house. Wow, the drama queen was Kim not her mom. Kim says that her mom is jealous, I think it's the other way around. Kim does not want any one else getting attention other than herself. I get it it's her show, but come on!!! She most def is not flying above it!!!!

Kim congratulations to you and Kroy. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and so is your family. You throwing your own mother out of the reception was a bit disturbing though. Wish you a Kroy love love ove and happiness.

OMG.... I balled my eyes out watching your wedding tonight. You looked so beautiful in all your dresses including that amazing jumpsuit. Your girls looked beautiful as well. I really could feel the love you and Kroy share even with not being a part of that day. You all make a beautiful family. I loved how baby KJ looked like a mini me next to his dad, so precious. Congrats a million times to life long happiness and love. Also congrats on a new little life heading your way.

I think Karen was appalling to do that at her daughter's wedding. She obviously has to be the center of attention. I thought Kroy's family handles themselves always with class and style. What a selfish one Karen is . This is your daughter's wedding you moron. Step back and enjoy the day with your family. Use the porta-potty like everyone else. And what is up with the aunt? She is as big an ass as the mother and to smile when they were sitting in the golf cart? They are awful people and good for Kim and Kroy that they threw her out. Mother or not, she shouldn't be in Kim's life until she can make up for what she did although you can't take back the trouble she caused already. What a low-class person she is.

It was freaking ridiculous who in their right mind wouldnt let their own mom use the bathroom in their house are you kidding me kim couldnt have acted more stuck up if she tried. When the cameras are gone and the series ends and all She has left is the family thats raised her and supported and been there when No one else was she will see and reliaze how awful she is acted.

Have always been a fan of Kim, but I cant get over the disrespect she has shown her Mother throughout the whole wedding preperation process. It was a buildup of disrespect after disrespect for her Mother and being refused entry to the house with Kim's Aunt was just another level of disrespect for her and I dont blame her for being furious at Kim. For Kim and Kroy to have her escorted off the property is unforgiveable. What a shame Kim has so little love and respect for her Mother and Father that she isnt aware of the consequenses and the hurt she caused them. Boo Kim ...Hard to repect YOU after this.

Being a parent, does not give you the right to disrespect your children or not abide by their  rules.  It was obvious that Karen, has a problem with Kim.  In spite of all of the crap Karen pulled because she coud not have her way, Kim, still went out of her way to be respectful, to and including looking for a pair of shoes for her to wear, after hers were "To Big".  I was thru, when she called Kim, a  B   H, and then told Kroy f   K you.  What parent does that.  The bad part was, they were in the Master Bedroom, bath.  Way out of line.  Karen, is not the first parent to disrespect their children, and I am sure she will not be the last.  But, in Kims place, I would be a long time forgiving.
