Kim Zolciak-Biermann

Kim shares her thoughts on the fallout with her family.

on May 16, 20130

What a hard episode to watch! Let's talk about the laughs before we get deep into the tears.

For the last couple of years Thanksgiving has always been me, the girls, Brielle's best friend Brandonn, and now that I'm married, Kroy! Well Thanksgiving this year was rough without speaking to my parents, but thank god for the love of my kids and husband! We had such a good time "making" the food, and our meal turned out delicious! (Surprising as that may seem.)

I just caught up on your show today.  I just love you all and I enjoy watching.  This episode made me cry too.  You are so awesome Kim, enjoy your beautiful family.

From a mom of three......good job sticking up for your family.  It doesnt matter who is bringing in the negative, all that matters is that you are doing all you can to make sure your children's (and your) lives are drama free.  Kudos to Brielle for acting and being so mature with the whole grandparent situation, she shows a very wise and mature personality......good job Kim!

You have a filthy mouth and it's not going to be so cute when those little boys start cussing. At first glance you appear beautiful until you open your mouth and then I cringe. Please stop cussing.

As someone who was never a fan of yours while you were on RHOA I must say that since Don't be tardy I've changed my tune :)

My heart just broke for you when you heard the things that your father had said and when your daughter read what had been said I lost it and burst into tears! You've shown what a good Mum you are and I really hope your parents will see how they have affected their own flesh and blood and apologise for their behaviour. Best of luck to you and your beautiful family :)

Swallow your pride when it comes to your parents.

If they pass away you will carry guilt until you die for all of this pettiness.

Let it go and stop teaching your daughters this rebellion.

One day when you don't act exactly as they wish, they will do the same to you.

You are teaching them this behavior.

kim,

please get rid of the zolciak name. you have the name of your amazing husband who loves you and your children. your parents don't deserve to have their name associated with you and the family you have created.

Kim.....even though Kroy is much younger than you....he is far more mature & level headed, which is the type of parent Brielle needs right now, because you are a total push-over & only care about image (i.e. wanting to reward her failing grades w/a car)!!! And on tonight's episode, Kroy was once again the voice of reason, as you were ready to go out & buy her a car the minute she had 1 good progress report in summer school. Kroy was right......she deserved a great big hug @  that moment & not a car!!!

 

OH & P.S. ......your gorgeous daughters may get their looks from you, but certainly not their intellect or brightness as you are as dumb as they come!!!!! "How do you say taco in Spanish"?!?! Lady......you need to go back to 1st grade, as far as I'm concerned!!!!!

I watched the episode with Kroy reading to Kim about her parents rants.  I remember when they were printed months ago.  For the first time, I saw Kim as a real human being.  Not just, boobs, wigs, and fancy jewels.  She has basically annoyed me in her flamboyance and "I love me" attitude.  I imagine Kroy's parents wanted to collapse when they found out the wine swilling, cig smoking,, previous gold digger,  potty mouth was going to be their darling son's wife.    But, the episode showing her without makeup and hair and being vulnerable was amazing.  I saw a real person..  not a fake performer...  and my heart melted for her.  How devastating for Kim and Kroy.  You could see how angry he was at how this hurt his wife.  The worst part is, the grandchildren are real people and they go to school and have to put up with their peers making remarks.  That was the topping on the cake when Brielle read it and collapsed and the pain in  Kim's face showed she really was a loving caring mother.  Kroy made the most gentle remark when he said they will realize it one day and feel hurt or- something along those lines..  Instead of saying they will be sorry, he sounded concerned for the family split.  Keep your head up Kim !  You keep acting like this, and I shall become a fan.  Of course, I am already a fan of your hubby.  The son I never had   LOL

Actually I find this show to one of the very few "Real" shows on Bravo..  I love the interaction and the laughs are so real... This could be any family in America..  I hope Bravo keeps going on with shows like these and not the "prepackaged" shows...

To Kim and anyone else who "gets it" ; if you haven't already found this website, check it OUT!!!

Lightshouse.org  It has been invaulable to me and my own healing.  Also the book (sounds pathetic, try to get past the title) "Will I Ever Be Good Enough" for daughters of Narcissistic mothers. I refer to this book as "my therapy book" and it was the most effective book for me to finally achieve healing. Also, even if they don't have a drinking problem, Adult Child of Alcoholics, a twelve stepper like AA, (or several other 12 step groups) is another INVALUABLE source of validation and healing. ALANON/ACOA(adult child of alcholics) has pretty much replaced my family of origin as I was raised by a narcissistic mother and a wonderful but enabling father AND I married an alcoholic, of course. I thank God probably every day for my 12 step groups. I am not a pathetic looser. I like to think I am as bodaciously beautiful as you might, but on the inside I have some healing to do. Even though I've come a long way recently, I will likely need to heal a little every day for the rest of my life-and that's  O. K. because I now know that I will always have God and the above resources available to me where ever I go.

 

Appropriately sharing what I learn from these resources with my 13-yr-old daughter has been EXTREMELY helpful to her as well as our relationships with eachother and others. I SO see how you are choosing NOT to "pass the buck" on to your children and truely admire you for that.  I have a similar relationship with my daughter to yours with your girls.

 

My heart goes out to you and what your'e going through the show but you are obviously handling things like the strong and sensative woman that God created in you.  Don't sweat the haters as they have either had a perfect life (though not likely) or they just choose to remain ignorant of their own "ish" so they focus on hating those who dare to heal.

 

Peace.

I watched as my parents were kept from visiting with the granddaughters through no fault of their own, but by a daughter-in-law that had no respect for my parents when their son, her husband, died.  Now, 20 years later, the granddaughters are tortured by the fact that they were kept from their grandparents especially since both has passed away.  My advice to Kim, is to work on her problems with her parents, but not to keep the girls away.  Of course, if you ask the girls, they will support their mother.  But THERE will come a time as they mature and have their own families that they will regret the decision.

On a lighter note.....what in the world is "sl#tty brownies"? And where can I get the recipe? They sound amazing....wonder how many people have made them since that show??

I watch you periodically on purpose. I have such a hard time with my family and the crap that goes on. Your show reminds me too much of what I have had to deal with my Mother and my family. I tried so hard to be to be perfect and pretty that I almost tied. My eating disorder ruined my life but made it great. Don't ever let people make you feel less than, bad, or not worthy. That is their problem not yours!

Kim..I have not always been a fan..but I am human too..we all do what we have to to get by. I admire your unyielding devotion to protecting your children. That is so admirable..and your devotion to Cory and your 2 children from him. The ONLY advice i would give you, and i am just a woman..is cut the F word down..you have impressionable little boys will be picking these words up soon.  No a good image. You are a wonderful woman, I am happy you are happy. it shows. You used to have a smile on your face, but it didn't meet your eyes..NOW it does..your smile meets your eyes..you are in LOVE and LOVING LIFE and it shows. Happy as I could be for you!

Kim, stand your ground.  Your mother is beyond toxic. People who understand toxic people know exactly why you are doing what you are doing and along with myself are behind you 100%.  Sorry, you deserved better.

Kim, You wanted a new life anyway so now you have it.

Having a mother who plays games... Wow  I can so relate to this situation. One the one hand you hate what she is doing. On the other without a relationship with your parents you feel orphaned. I have had to get a restraining order to protect weird goings on with my family. It hurt but was needed to protect the children. There is guilt and sadness on all accounts. However you have to do what is best for the most! Good Luck your family is in a very hard spot!

kim, No mom acts and behaves like yours, don't pay attention to her andI hope your girls never have to deal with her, remember how she behaved at your wedding when she used the bathroom, she is no good, I hope Kroy and you move your residence as far away from her as it is possible, move to Hawaii it is far enough, and your dad has  no character letting be influenced by her.

 Well she does have 4 kids, 2 still in diapers, I think maybe we should try and be a lil more understanding there sigirl.... Just Sayin....

@bravvofan I have been saying all along her mother is a narcissist, it is good to see that someone else gets it. So many haters trying to blame Kim for her mothers behavior. So many people lacking understanding that Kim is the way she is because she had no decent parenting as a kid and wasn't nurtured or protected while growing up. I am so proud of Kim and the good mother that she is because she has had to teach herself to be a good mother and has done a darn good job of it. Good luck to you with your healing, I wish you all the best!

 @notenoughtime I would feel differently if they wanted to see all their grandchildren but they only want to see the girls, not the boys so this isn't them "longing" for their grandchildren. It is an attempt at emotional abuse of their daughter as payback for their embarrassment at the wedding and to continue with their 15 minutes of fame because it's they only way they will get air time. So sad.

 @notenoughtime

 I don't always agree with Wigs, but, in this instance, I'm 200% in agreement with her. Her parents, especially her mother, are awful and should be ashamed for turning this into a media spectacle. I don't blame Kim one bit for not wanting her girls to be with those people. Her father basically called her a wh*re in the media, by saying she has 4 kids by 3 different men, and she's supposed to let her children spend time with them? Why should she? I wouldn't for one minute trust them not to bash Kim to her children. Plus, if they are so desperate to spend time with their grandchildren, why do they only want to see the girls, and not KJ or Kash?

 @Sandra@nebraska Sandra, I totally agree with you.  Kim's parents (particularly her mother) are just looking for their "15 minutes of fame" at Kim's expense.  And of course, there's the money aspect.

FlutterBy

@Sandra@nebraska I think her father is the more damaging of the two even though Kim said he was "cool" ... it is obvious as it has been since the first time he appeared on the ATL HW's.... he has a need for attention, likes the open mic, I am sure by now, the gossip rags have figured this out and will keep getting sound bites....but I believe he will be very remoreseful as time goes by and the cameras go home...

NicolettetheGreek
NicolettetheGreek

 @WifeNoMo Yes, she does have a new life, but our lives tend to become the result of the choices we have made in the past. I wish her well. We only see what the cameras allow us to see. Nothing is one-sided. There is always 3 sides to every story..mine/theirs/the TRUTH.

@songusmat@yahoo.com WTF are you tlking about? Kim started the whole mess by how she has treated her family. Kim is the worst kind of trailer- trash..with new money. It was obvious from the way she set up her wedding...who has their guests use a porta-potty because she didn't want them destroying her "dream house" ...which tuned out to be a horror house.....karma is a bitch.

 Thanks, Daqnabs64!  I totally agree with you.  I suppose if one hasn't studied or experienced a Narc. parent, AND acknowledged it, then he/she won't understand or have any compassion for Kim or others like her. I actually feel lucky, now, after getting to the other side of my situation and becoming more whole a person than ever.  Life is only getting better! Best to you as well!

 @SweetD81014  @notenoughtime

 it was just legal speak...the only way to get visitation is that you already had a relationship and it was cut off...they couldn't prove a relationship with the boys, so they had no legal leg to stand on.  you can't hold that against them!  That is ignorance of the law

 @WifeNoMo

 i totally agree with you, no one should ever treat their mother or parents like that. and while you were with big poppa who were watching you girls. your parent have some type of bond with them. now for the boys i think kroy has a lot to do with that.

WifeNoMo:  Who has their guests use a porta-potty because she didn't want them destroying her "dream house".  The answer is, anyone who wants to.  Her house, her rules.  If her mother (and the aunt who instigated this whole debacle) had a problem with the porta-potty then leave.  It's not rocket science.  What's happening now is not karma.  It's about a jealous, vindictive, and obviously unstable  mother trying to destroy her daughter's happiness.

NicolettetheGreek
NicolettetheGreek

 @WifeNoMo Kim's mom is so obviously jealous of her success-yes, she EARNED it..not by means by which you nor I might have, but we ALL pay a price for what we have. Her mom should not have come to the wedding with the attitude she did. She showed the in the entire pre-wedding shows she was acting like a child. No, I do not agree with everything that was done-the port-a-potties-but to act like you are "special enough to smack talk your daughter at HER WEDDING, in HER HOME, waking up your grandchildren, loud enough for guests to hear?" Rude to the core!

@fglare What? Are you in high school? Not that it's any of your busines, but I was curious to see if they had any remaining viewers...Kim is such a sociopath, I thought her "fans," might have caught on to her deceptive game, by now. Oh well, "birds of a feather."

 @fglare  @charlene66  @WifeNoMo

 i can't believe we watched the same thing but i feel the exact opposite.  i would never treat my mother like that if she used my bathroom, she is my mother...I wouldn't want her using a portapotty..she gave birth to me..that is the least i owe her...and to keep grandchildren away because of all of this???that is totally ridiculous..the grandma didn't drive drunik with the girls, or something horrific...if people hated their parents over something this trivial..there would be few happy families

 @charlene66  @WifeNoMo check your tv, it must be broken. karen and joe dragged the girls in that mess to hurt Kim. they were nothing but collateral damage and do not deserve to know them. obviously they have no boundaries and are willing to hurt anyone for $$. Kim's only responsibility is to her kids and hubby. her parents aren't worth anything.
