Kim introduces you to the key figures in her wedding prep adventures.

on Apr 30, 20120

Shun has been styling me for a couple of years now, and she is the best. I have always "styled" myself, but when I got pregnant with KJ and my body was changing monthly, I needed some serious help LOL. She always has the hottest clothes and shoes, and now she styles my husband, my girls, and baby KJ. Not too many stylists can pull off styling a football player with a bigger booty and thighs and a smaller waist, or a 10-year-old that I want to keep dressed like a 10-year-old, or a 15-year-old that needs to look 15 and not 21, if you catch my drift. She has styled me with just a few hours notice and knocked it out of the park, so I figured she could handle my wedding party, my parents, and my soon to be in-laws. But when she said, “I was f---ing delusional," I got a little nervous! Shun is also a dear friend of mine, so with that kind of relationship comes the stress of keeping everything balanced during a time crunch. You can follow her on Twitter @shunmelson.

Jim the trainer...Oh my... As you all know, I dislike working out. I have never been a big fan of lifting weights or exercising. I do enjoy long walks with my family, but that is the extent of it. But I wanted to look amazing on my wedding day and tone up, so Kroy hired the best trainer in Atlanta. Jim has trained NFL players, models, etc, so he is quite diverse. Well, as you saw, motivated as I was in my mind, my body had a different idea. I had gained 50 pounds with KJ, lost 45 pounds in six weeks (how I have no idea other than Dr. Hood my OB said I had a lot of water weight), but I still had that 5 pounds to go. Needless to say I never really lost that 5 pounds, because after that one work out session I didn’t have the time nor the energy to keep going. I had a wedding to plan in 8 weeks! You can follow Jim on Twitter @jimlauner.

I just saw this episode of your wedding.  Beautiful!  Kroy is a dream.  It is so sweet how much he loves you and your beautiful daughters.

Hi Kim...so happy for you and Kroy. You seem like a changed woman now that you're away from the other ladies on ATL housewives. Your baby is adorable and your daughters get prettier everyday. If I may...I feel I must offer you some advice. I get sooooo disappointed when snippits of the old Kim come sneaking back. All of the cursing and crass talk just makes me cringe when I hear it. You seem so far beyond it and then, "B----, what are you doin?", or "f------- trying to get married...". I'm not saying change who you are, but you have to change how you operate when you go to the next level in love and in life. I'm sure you want to set a good example for those beautiful daughters by showing them how a lady acts. I'm a 41 year old black woman from Cleveland, originally, living in NC currently so I've seen the whole gamut of women from all backgrounds and ethnicities. There's a way to still keep it real like the down to earth person you are, all the while maintaining class and beauty. Nothing screams ugly like a beautiful woman with a potty mouth. It's just not necessary. You're an educated woman with a beautiful family. Show the world who you are by exemplifying class and grace. Also, I just watched the last episode and you got on your mom about her text, but you aren't taking responsibility for causing her to send that ugly text. If you hadn't lied to her about Colin not coming she wouldn't have done that. Treat your mom the way you want your girls to treat you. They are watching and listening to everything. Trust me...karma is a trip. Good luck to you and your marriage. Blessings to you!!

I love you Kim! and KJ is completely adorable and you and Kroy's love for each other is so apparent and beautiful. Don't stress too much over your Monther's passive aggressive behavior. It was so wonderful when Kroy stood up for you. You don't have to put up with that ridiculousness!

Kim, Best of luck to you, Kroy and your family... You deserve true happiness. You are the woman that has made the Alt. Housewives, what it is today. You make all single moms hopeful for love and so proud to be moms. I don't get your mom's slightly odd antics, but to each their own. You're beautiful and you & Kroy have a beautifully amazing family.... Best of luck, love, laughter & happiness...

Hi Kim, Your baby is so cute! Could you Please send me some information on how I can reach out to your psychic, Rose for a reading?

Thank you and all the best!

Your argument with your mother should stay between you and your mother. Kroy should have stayed out of it and refrained from arguing with your mom. This will only build tension between Kroy and your mother after you and your mom resolve the issue, as mothers and daughters always do. Take my advice Kim, you are a big girl who can defend yourself. By the way, Brielle is a beautiful teenager.

Kim, congrats on all the great things that have happened for you....Now it's time to get real. Why on Earth did you feel the need to put NeNe down on your show? DBTFTW has nothing to do with her, but you just had to get that cheap shot in (the moose comment). We all know that if she had done the same thing, Nene would have been labeled as mean or bully..... it's a double standard. No one wants to hear your whining if she says something about you next week because you just authorized it!! With that being said, I will not be tuning in again.

Kim, You are truly an amazing mother, you have been blessed so know it girl!! GOD has been listening to you. I have been watching you since day 1 and have enjoyed every episode on RHoA and now DBTFTW. I love it May we ever cross paths it would be such a rewarding surprise to me. Congrats and keep it real Kim.

Absolutely luv you and your family. It is very easy to watch you with your girls because you can tell how much they love you and how well you have done raising them, no matter what has been going on in your life. When I see you with KJ you light up in a way that I have never seen before. I am so happy for you and your family, having another child and maybe another tells a whole lot about who you are, most people in the limelight is so worried about messing up their career or figure by being pregant but not you, you charged head on. Love the show and hope it returns for another season.

Kim, I hav to tell you that from episode 1 of RHOA I liked the combination of Kim & NeNe. I don't know what happened to NeNe's realness she had at the beginning (fame went to her head).

I am so happy for you and the love that you have found with Kroy. At the baby shower, I cried when your daughters spoke from the heart of their love for Kroy and the happiness he brought to your lives. KJ is such a beautiful baby.

Mrs. Kim Biermann, you brought us all with you on the journey & evolution of your life and I now see you have been the most real one from the beginning.

Congratulations!!!

Kim, I adore your show like everyone else on this blog. I don't have any... negative feedback regardless of your spending habits. I'm glad that u are in a much better place. I've seen the show RHOA since the beginning and growth is a beautiful thing and u truly have evolved. Kroy seem so wonderful, and your girls are amazing. Lil Kj looks so much like his dad. But, one thing that won me over right away about ur new show, was seeing with A friend that's funny. It's good to see u with someone that u guys aren't cussing each other out, that was refreshing. I really like her, she had me laughing. LOL. Take care sweetie and continue to enjoy life.

Kim....

You are such a funny and loving mother, keeping it real all the time and that's so refreshing on "reality" tv. I have seen the change over the years and you truly seem happy with your girls, KJ and Kroy. Your friendship with Jen is awesome to see because you two are like my girlfriends.....Keeping each other laughing all the time!!!! Congratulations on the wedding and new baby!!! Thanks for letting us tag along and experience your journey :)

Kim Love the show! I've always loved you on RHOA; you are really the only one that seems real and owns what you have done; who you are. I admire that! I hope you are able to continue with your own show and be on RHOA. But to be honest, you're better off on your own! Best of wishes!

Kim; you are amazing! I have watched the show since the first episode and you have evolved into an incredible woman. You are such a great mother and your daughters are fantastic. What can I say about little KJ? He is adorable! I know your new baby will be sweet and beautiful too. Congratulations to you and Kroy! He is fabulous too! I love, love, love your new show! I look forward to it every week and I re-watched the first ones over and over. I just can't get enough of you and your wonderful family & friends. NeNe is so negative and slimy. I hope she leaves the show and never comes back! I have never liked her and that will never change. Keep up the great work and thank you for being so wonderful! with love and admiration, Karen

I enjoy watching the Bravo shows but Kim I shuddered when I watched you spend money. People are starving. Yes others spend money like this and you may be charitable but the way you spend without a second thought hurts my heart.

Very happy for you and Kroy.. Why would you push so hard to ruin it with this over the roof wedding demands? You are spending the money like it is running out of a fountain. The tacky house and gigantic photos everywhere, the tons of dresses/change of clothing for the wedding? You are creating your own stress, havoc, and mistakes.. Give Kroy a break and just have a REAL wedding to show him you love HIM instead of breaking the banks of both of you for TV!!???

Hi Kim I have really enjoyed watching you become an incredible mom and house wife. Yes girl you are Crazy but genuinely good this is why you have been so blessed. I am a single mom and only hope to be so lucky as you have been. Keep your head up and defend your family and only worry about making them happy! PS Dont ever take Kroy for granted girl he is so fine and he loves you!!

Absolutely adore you, the girls, KJ and Kroy! Can't wait for new addition to your already blessed and amazing family! I love DBTFTW 1st show last week! Excited for you the ratings were BEYOND GREAT!! Looking forward to show this Thursday :). I heard you say last week on the " Wendy Williams " show there were only 8 episodes of DBTFTW? I really hope due to the numbers YOU/FAMILY brought to BRAVO - you would really consider doing a regular family show? I and others ENJOYED watching DBTFTW and it would be FANTASTIC if YOU had YOUR OWN SHOW!!! Here's to the next precious little addition to your beautiful family and here's to even more success than you ever dreamed of!! God bless you and family today and always!

I am so excited for you with your wedding & new baby on the way. KJ looks just like Kroy, I so enjoyed getting to watch you play with KJ in the last episode. I to had separation anxiety, I know how you felt. Your daughters are beautiful and so sweet, its been fun watching them grow up in front of our eyes. I cant wait for the rest of the episodes. I just wish they didnt have to film them so far in advance because by the time we see them, everyone & alot of things have changed. Best of luck to you, Kroy and your family. You deserve it.

First off you are so F%ing funny!! I hope Bravo takes note shows that do well are about happy things and the drama that comes along. Not the other way around. I am a huge fan of Bethenny but her ratings are down possible to they way it was edited. Your friends and family Kim are a riot! Good luck to you and I love the bits with K.J. Have you ever seen a more adorable little boy?

Kim, my sister thinks you and I look and act alike. We kind of do have the same attitude and habits. We don't bite unless somebody pushes us and then look out, it's like a hurricane building.I love your daughters, the oldest looks exactly like you and ariele (spelling) is so sensitive. You can see the love they have for you. Especially on ariele's birthday. I wish you luck and happiness. Nene is so jealous of you. If you ever need someone to be your assistant, you can count on me. You an Troy are made for each other. Good Luck and God Bless.

The only reason I stopped to watch a moment of RHOA is because you were in the scene. I love your new show & wish you and your family all the best! Congrats on your continued success!! There are people that don't care about all of the drama on RHOA and simply watch to see/hear your next punchline!!
