Heart of the Matter

Kroy talks about the importance of wedding vows.

KJ, my little man and twin, was such a sweetheart in the beginning leaning in and hugging and kissing Kim when she was really starting to feel the stress and pressure! I know he has me covered as the man of the house when I have to be away.

I was really bummed when I wasn't able to make the meeting with Kim and her Uncle John, but I know from talking with Kim that he has and will always have her back, and it was a great opportunity for them to find some common ground with Kim's mom. As you all know, the man walking the bride down the aisle is a VERY significant person, and the relationship that Kim and her uncle have has been through many ups and downs throughout the years due to his health, so her choice to have him along with her father walk her down the aisle is just so great.

On the other hand, I am very thankful that I was working during the selection of the porta-potties. Not a very exciting part of the process of planning our wedding, but Kim's friend Derek J did a great job of helping her out.

One of my best friends and mentors, Coy Wire, came to the house to congratulate us and visit. Little did he know he was about to be asked to officiate our big day. I played with Coy for three years with the Atlanta Falcons and really got to know him as a man of great core values and morals, and I respected the fact he holds his own marriage in such high regard. I couldn't of thought of a better person to stand up there with me and Kim.

Having been a part of and seeing many weddings in my time, I came to realize that the vows are the most significant part. It is your promise and verbal commitment to the person you will spend the rest of your life with. Every other part of a wedding is for you and your guests to have a great time, so naturally for me I could see no other way than writing those vows in my own words. As you could see, Kim was unsure about writing her owns vows. She was so emotional at the thought of standing up there and having to do it. But if Kim had decided not to write her own vows, it wouldn't have mattered to me, because I know in my heart how she feels. But you will see how that turns out.

Kim and I really wanted all of our guests to be comfortable and enjoy themselves, especially our parents, so when Kim's mom finally showed up for her fitting, we saw that as a good opportunity to clear the air and hopefully get on better terms so it wouldn't affect our wedding. As you guys saw, Karen wasn't on the same page. A simple "I'm sorry" was hard for her to do. Letting Kim and her mom try and figure it out together I felt was best at this point, but I think sometimes you have to step in and protect your wife and family.

Steroids and Wine

Episode 8: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor is very concerned for Kim's liver.

The tension is mounting! This episode was such a horrible tease, since we only get a glimpse at the wedding. We've been waiting for weeks to see that wedding jumpsuit in action, COME ON! But good wigs come to those who wait I suppose, and there were still plenty of entertaining moments during the pre-wedding panic.

Steroids and Wine

Jen returns! Tears are shed and our Lucy is reunited with her Ethel. Jen couldn't be happier to have shed the matron of honor stress, and now gets to go back to doing what she does best -- drinking with Kim. So while lashes are applied and hair is curled, Jen sets off in search of the booze. And Kim's antibiotics. Hold up. Aren't you supposed to keep alcohol far away from you when on antibiotics? Well for mere mortals these may be the rules, but not for Kim Zolciak. By the divine grace of her wigs, it would seem that Kim somehow managed to keep her liver intact. (Although I guess we haven't gotten to the big event yet...)

I was also a big fan of how Jen totally called out Brielle when she suggested that Kim drink her red wine through a straw, as this is the commonly known way to avoid wine teeth. Whoops! Though I doubt Brielle is out with her friends drinking bottles of red and hiding it by drinking from a straw. Everybody knows (Phaedra moment!) that teens opt for classy alcoholic beverages like Mike's Hard Lemonade, Zima, and wine coolers. Duh!

100% Pure Love (and Joy)

Kroy and Coy in a Porsche? That is one extra hot ride... But I digress.

Forget looking for men in the gym or the grocery store, evidently they're keeping all the good ones in Montana (or just on the Atlanta Falcons, hard to say). Seriously, did Kroy come off some previously unknown planet for hot and sweet men? He's just calm, cool, and totally ecstatic about marrying Kim. No wedding day jitters, just complete confidence in the fact that he's finally found the woman for him. He always manages to keep it positive: "The years ahead of us are going to be nothing but happy and successful and enjoyable." This guy is cuter than KJ and Chanel combined. Well, almost, but that's still saying something.
Derek J Date

If there's one thing that really seems to be stressing out Kim to no end, it's getting her wedding wig cut. She was so adamant about having it done before the wedding day, but that didn't happen. Derek J didn't even make it to Kim's house until two hours before the big event. Why you ask? It would seem that Kandi hijacked Derek J for "ten hours" that morning to give her a wedding-worthy 'do. Ten hours? What in the world was Derek doing to her hair? In that amount of time he probably could have crafted and cut an entirely new wig for her. Now I'm dying to see what exactly he did to Kandi's coif.

I also love the Derek J just doesn't take any BS from Kim. As soon as she starts going off on him, he fires back by calling her ma'am. I think that's the equivalent of your parent using your full name to yell at you in Derek J's universe. Let's hope he doesn't displease Kim with his wig cutting.
Next week's the main event. Will it be a dream wedding or just a nightmare?
