The Incredible Journey

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

What an exciting season premiere! I first want to THANK YOU all of you for your support! I love reading all my Twitter comments from you guys, so follow me @kimzolciak.

Let’s get right into it!

Oh Jen...She has been my best friend for over twelve years, she does NOT like the "limelight" at all and has ALWAYS remained behind the scenes. But hey, when your best friend is getting married and you are the matron of honor, it kind of throws you in it. She was so supportive. I am so glad you guys got to meet her, she is truly one of the most incredible people I have ever met in my life. She helped me with my girls when I was single, she has been there for me through all my ups and downs, she has been with me on all my appearances, and I just love her to pieces. She makes me laugh constantly. Her one liners are the best, and no, Jen does not have a Twitter. I asked her to get one for you guys, and she was like, "Kim, no ma'am, I am not doing this whole Twitter thing." I’ll keep working on it.

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.
Colin Cowie is known to be the "best" wedding planner, and I knew if anyone could pull this off in 8 weeks, it would be him. My mom is kind of obsessed with Colin, and she REALLY wanted to be at the first meeting. I mean hey, her daughter is getting married and she really wanted to be involved, so I let her come. She was respectful, but did get all of Colin's contact information before he left that day as well as his assistant’s, which made me nervous because I didn’t want her calling him behind the scenes to give him ideas on what she thought would be a perfect wedding. You guys will see how all that unfolds in the next few episodes.

NYC! I was so sad leaving KJ, It was first time leaving him overnight, and I was wreck. It took all I had in me to get on that plane, and I drove Kroy nuts texting and calling him to check on baby KJ. I knew that Kroy could handle it, he is the best daddy ever, but I was having some serious separation anxiety. I also knew that my girls needed some one-on-one time with me, since things have been so hectic lately, and I figured what better way than to have them come to NYC with me and enjoy the big apple. We had a blast! We attended Pnina Tornai's wedding dress fashion show, which you guys didn’t get to see, and my girls helped me pick out some dresses. It was so fun! I didn’t have them in the hotel room with me when I made my final decision, because I wanted to surprise them as well as Kroy, and I didn’t want them telling Kroy anything about my final selection, so they were out with Jen shopping and enjoying Ariana's 10th birthday! Serendipity was a blast, my girls are amazing. I think it really hit us that mommy was getting married to the most incredible man ever, and we all got so emotional. Like this is it! We have been a team, just me and the girls, for 10 plus years and now they have a father figure and mommy met her soul mate. We all connected again on another level realizing that the pieces we have been missing have now been found and filled.

I loved these two episodes! I laughed and I cried.

I have to thank my producers Carlos, Dom, and Bianca for their constant support throughout this season. There were many times I wanted to scream and cry, and they were always supportive and gave me a BIG HUG when I needed it most.

Stay tuned every Thursday at 9:30pm to watch this incredible journey unfold. It’s going to be quite the ride!

P.S. My gorgeous husband’s Twitter is @biermann71. I see a lot of tweets going to the wrong Kroy LOL.

Wigless in Atlanta

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

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.

Honorable Discharge

Phew! Kim and Jen have finally reconciled. I can relax now.

Bravo's resident Lucy and Ethel managed to patch things up once Jen sent Kim an apology email explaining why she's been out of touch. The pressure of being in the spotlight and planning had gotten to her. Her apology managed to move Kim to tears it was so touching. And I have to admit, it was moving. Jen may not be the best matron of honor, but she does know how to say she's sorry.

So Jen will no longer be Kim's matron of honor, but she will remain her best friend. Awww! Though I'm a little disappointed, because I was dying to see if Kim would make her wear one of those odd matron of honor hats.
Wigless in Atlanta

After years of waiting and wondering, Kim finally answered what has become one of the greatest mysteries in all of Housewives lore -- what's under the wig? It's one of those things where I'm sure everyone had their own mental image of what we'd find. A short, G.I. Jane look. Gingery locks. Some sort of lucky animal pelt. Who could say? Well now the speculation can finally cease. It's just hair. Hair that (call me crazy) looked nearly identical to Kim's wigs.

She has nice, normal hair! Which begs the question -- why the wigs? It would seem she simply enjoys wearing them. Why not extensions? Do wigs really save you any trouble rather than dealing with your own hair maintenance? Basically by lifting the wig curtain on this mystery, we're left with even more questions than before.
Next week Jen returns! Hurrah!
