Wigless in Atlanta

Episode 7: Bravotv.com'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!

The Real Kim

Kim's glad you got to see her real hair, but she's not giving up her wigs any time soon.

WOW! Big episode! Let's get right to it.

My best friend Jen has ALWAYS remained behind the scenes in my "public" life, yet she has been very involved for over 12 years in my "personal" life. It never crossed my mind that she might be uncomfortable being in the forefront as my matron of honor. When Jen stopped showing up for things and calling, I wasn't sure what to think. I was so hurt. Her email couldn't have come at a better time. Here I am the day before my wedding sick as hell with a high fever, congestion, ugh. As I read her email it all made sense. I felt awful that I put her in that position, and she didn't have the heart to tell me. I was also devastated my very best friend wouldn't be standing up next to me on my big day, however Jen said it best, "I will give up my matron of honor title, but NOT my best friend title." The reason Jen and I have such a great friendship is because we always communicate. Good friends are hard to come by, and I am so blessed and thankful to have her in my life.

The big reveal What did you guys think? YES IT IS ALL MY HAIR! No clip ins, no extensions. I did have it blown out that day as I do everyday before I put my wig on, but IT IS ALL MINE. I love my wigs, I love how easy they are. You just put them on and go, you can chose straight hair, curly hair, whatever I am feeling for the day. I do not do extensions, because it damages your real hair. So I will keep on wearing my wigs until the day I decide it's time to move on. I have read a lot of the comments, blogs, etc. and I appreciate all your support! I am glad you guys were digging my real hair! Derek and Niki tried to convince me to wear my real hair for my wedding day, as you saw, and I wasn't having it! That is not the day I wanted to change up my look!

Just one more episode until the BIG day. I cant wait to watch it with you guys!
