What was the inspiration behind your single, ''Tardy for the Party''?
Kim Zolciak: The inspiration behind ''Tardy for the Party'' was first and foremost my daughter Brielle. She co-wrote the original lyrics when she was nine years old. The song was fun and catchy. Kandi [Burruss] changed the melody and turned the song into a dance anthem.
How did the idea for the single originate?
Zolciak: Brielle wrote the original lyrics years ago. The song was catchy and fun. After all the heat I got last year and all the humiliation I experienced, I wanted to face my fears and try singing again. I didn't realize until I had to go back into the studio just how emotional it would be. I had Kandi's constant encouragement and expertise, which helped make the experience so enjoyable. It was a moment I will never forget.
Now you know you did some extra acting with that fall. Like Lisa said, "all you did was skin your nails". What was all that moaning about. You really went that extra mile to go home. That is really what you wanted right...to get out of there?
P.s. I enjoy you on the show! You and Kandi are my favorite housewives. Everyone just seems to be jealous of both of you
I have been watching you peaches since the begining, and I have to admit there are times when you slide from the pressure you get on the show from the other girls...I dont blame you one bit...at times it seems like all the girls are out to get you. As for Thursdays show, I have to say shame on the girls. After you fell, they all wanted it to seem like you were faking it and wanted all the attention. I did not see it that way at all. Instead of being true freinds, or even people for that matter, they never thought for a moment that you were really hurt. I have fallen as you did and live with pain everyday. I could even see at the tv distance, not only physically, but also emotionally, where you were at in that moment and I think they should have been a little more concerned for you and how you were. I sure hope they apologize for their cold hearted behavior.
Hi Kim... sorry to see you fall the other night. hope your ankle is doing much better now. YOU ARE LOOKING BEAUTIFUL IN SPITE OF IT!
You KNOW you should really ask NeeNee to be on the TARDY song with you.... she found it first at your house... remember? Sitting upstairs in your den?
Candy is a wonderful girl and will be a good influence on you and the girls!
Good luck with your wigs Kim, they look wonderful!
Kim, First I would like to say I Understand u fully in the way u feel out place with so called friends or associates. I can say this you need to start surrounding urself with people who mean u good. Secondly u have to start standing up for URSELF. IT doesn't do u any good talking about it after it is over! Put ur foot down. Third and most important your PERSONAL business is just that PERSONAL. Keep your love life on the low. If NeNe would have never known that much of ur business she could have never but you on BLAST. One more thing just stop trashing others!!! It's not classy at all. Good luck and best wishes!
Way to go on the song!!! You really did great. I am sure it was very difficult emotionally for you to do, but you did it and proved to those who doubted you...WRONG! You sure need to give Kandi a big hug for that one for helping you break through.
Congratulations Kim! I'm so glad you sung your song along. All before NeNe claim you couldn't sing. Now, when it was about to happen and you were going to include her, your song sounded good. Girl, you made the right decision. She didn't do anything to reap from that harvest. Stay loyal to Kandi she means you well. (You have found a true friend-VALUE IT) Always go to her if you hear rumors b/c all people don't mean well.
Why are all the girls always hating on you? Is someone feeding them all some cray cray? I love Tardy for the Party, and good for you for having a dream and LIVING it! So many don't. Keep being who you are, and as you said before "Let your haters be your motivators". Live your dreams!
Hi Kim, I have to say you take a lot of abuse on that show. I don't see how you can continue to be friends with NeNe. She treats you like trash and that is being kind. You need to find a better class of friend. You have a great personality so focus on your kids and career and you should be able to find a better friend than NeNe. You need to put her in the past. You really need to watch your back because those haters on the show will eventually bring you down. Kandi is the only person who seems real.
Kim, I think that you are just an attention getter. Without that make up you are a very ugly girl and as far as trying to have full lips girlstopwith the cologin. You are such a jealous person that tries to get everyone to be your friend. Tell Quincey I love him too.
Does Kim think she's not going to get caught up in all her lies, because in the time i've watched the show i've caught her in quite a few lies?
I'm starting to become a fan of yours. But let me say this to you, when you make comments about the other castmates you need to be able to back it up. Otherwise, don't say anything negative about them because it just gives them something to talk about. I was nervous about hearing you sing again but I have to admit that I just listened to the entire song "Tardy For The Party" and I would sooooo buy it. Congrats to you and Kandi. PS: You need to start checking NeNe's ass. The comments she made at your wig party were just too much....remember, you can stand your ground without stooping to that level. You don't have to keep meeting them to take that crap off of them...really you don't. No one should ever be threatening to snatch off a wig, rip your eyebrows off or flip you over the couch. Congrats again
Girrrrrl, NeNe's head is so big now it matches her a**. What the hell does she mean by you can't sell the song without her on it? She may have thought this, but to actually come out and say it...on national tv...to your face? Crazy! Before this, I adored NeNe; but this proved to be too stone cold and selfish.
On to Sheree: did anyone else notice her wrinkled armpit skin? it looked as if THEY had birthed her 3 kids=looked just like an overly stretched out va-j-j.
Kim, will there EVER be a time when you will reveal your real hair on the show? It can't be that bad but you know the nation is nosey and wants to see.
Last Q: was your ex-husband wealthy? If Big Poppa's money well goes dry for you, do you still have alimony or child support from the ex to fall back on?
Love ya, girl!
Way to go KIM!! Don't let them jealous bitchs keep you down.....you know how it is when your pretty and your talented too......boy, girls can be your worse enemy, especially that Nene.....but you know what its all about, just do your thing and keep your head up, don't second quess yourself so often. You must be doing something right...look where you are in your life! How exciting for you right now, a hit song, a hit show, your doing it right now. Enjoy it baby, you've made it!! Jay
Just becuase you like the way the song sounds now dont go leaving Nene off the cut, not if she was suppose to be included originally. Were you just using her???? And stop being a drama queen and sucking up to Kandi just because you need a new friend now. By the way...Nene is not your friend at all.
I'm sorry Kim...please stick with your day job. You really cannot sing. I do hope you are an acutual sucsess at the wig line though...Maybe you could design a few for yourself. The one you wear on the show is getting old and boring. (why do you wear a wig anyway?) It doesn't flatter you at all. Everyone knows you wear them, so why not mix it up a little. I like the brunnette wig you tried on. It was nice on you. Other then those two points, I feel everyone knows who and what you really are, so there is no need to go further. Good Luck on the wig line, but drop the pretend singing...
will you return if bravo have a 3rd season? You do not interact with the cast, except with Kandi! You ARE AN OPPORTUNIST. due to now you have a single "With Kandi's Help" SHE WOULD BE MY HERO IF SHE PAVED A WAY FOR MY CAFREER. But is all good!
I think the song is good but you were bogus for not allowing Nene to be on the song with you. Your decision to kick her out was purely selfish, and once again.... you want all the attention to be on you and about you. Then you question why people treat you badly. I wish you'd just wake up and own up to some of your mistakes that you have made along the way during these two seasons.
KIM I LOOOOOOVE THE SONG !!!! I am so proud that you have over come and faced your fears. Kandi did a wonderful job as a friend to help bring out the best in you
I am already thinking of a ballroom hustle for your song .
and as for drag queen she knows what you can do for her , her behind can't sing worth two nickles rub together . Such a hater
I'm sorry but your song is really bad, it is not that good. It sounds techno to me. They not playing it over in the clubs here.
Hey Kim, I loved this episode, I am your fan girl but I have to admit you were a little bit of a drama queen at the alter ego party. However, Nene and Lisa think you were trying to get attention and I don't think so. No one asked Nene to go in and get the images she could have checked on you and made sure you got off to the hospital and got everyone back inside. Lisa claims you could have come back in after falling but she would not have done that herself. Kandi is amazing! Sheree is a hater and truly has a serious problem. She is about herself and money! I wish you the best and I am glad you got over your fears.
If Nene wanted to do a song why don't she sing the theme song to her local furniture store :). My how she has changed.
You know I always rooted for you Kim. I alway thought that you had a good spirit but were just misunderstood. However, I think your true colors are finally being revealed. You went to Candy saying you wanted to do the song with NeNe. You told NeNe that you wanted to do it with her. Then you went to Candy's all nervous cause you knew you could not sing. So after you realized that they could alter your voice so you would sound a quarter way decent, you kick NeNe to the curb. It's a shame cause NeNe actually sounded like she had a nice voice. You do well to remember that you'll see the same people on the way down that you saw on the way up! It's not nice to invite someone to do something and then kick them to the curb for what you view as your own personal gain.
wow, please give up singing. you know thats not your real voice in that song. and the song sucks too. your very arrogant, i saw you on the watch what happens live special. and you dont make any money on your own you just mooch off of "big papa".
p.s.- just because something is designer doesnt make it cute, im referring to that hideous pink nightgown you wore while recording "tardy for the party".
SEE way to go KIM!!! Don't listen to jealous bitchs you know how they are with pretty girls and when they see you DO have talent OMG look out their going to come after you with their nasty teeth and tear you apart....that Nene will say anything. What she dosn't know she makes up and you know she's always got to be center of attention. Just be prepared you know what women like that are. Jay
Kim, Not sure if this will get posted since most of the time I place a comment it doesn't get posted. I am usually nice when I comment, however, I have to say that I think the song was terrible. I like the things that Kandi did, but you really can not sing and have no business creating music. I think you are a good person but music is not for you. Other then that, good luck with everything else. Oh - and I have a scar on my leg from a fall, it's usually a conversation starter so don't worry about it.
I don't get it. I don't understand why you're on the show when you're not technically a housewife. And you have no talent, it's embarassing to watch you sing...and how can you be a singer when you smoke?? How can you be a smoker when you are a mother?! So trashy and no class! I find you to be the most annoying on the show.
Kim, I don't even know why I am commenting on your Blog... However, I can't pass up the chance to let you know how I feel. I was cutting for you when everyone said you were lying. I still think that you were not lying about Sheree, she probably is bouncing checks. Because she thinks people are "jealous of her success"... WHAT SuCCess!!!! Anyway, I think it is messed up how you left NeNe out of the song. You were all with her recording it with you and then I think you saw the big picture and money to be made and you walked on a friend. (Whatever kind of friendship it is...) Kim, why are you so needy, I noticed how you were holding onto Kandi's Mom's hand when you fell. What is that about, especially when you make such derogatory comments about black people (i.e. Wearing the black wig was just as bad as being black...) huh...
Hi kim, If i had your body i be one happy mommy. Love your wigs there great i hope u stick with it. Also I LOVE LOVE your song dont let them get you down . your a great MOM from what i have seen i dont know if my last post went threw but keep it up . MAKE MORE SONG'S! and dont let the wolfs who act like friends get you down . Get them out of your life and you be happy.
You love your kids and do what you have to for them ...but that one nanny you had omg she needed a slap for telling your kid that shes going to hell.
KEEP your head up Every girl wants to be a barbie thats why we get them when were young. IF I could look like that i would. AND i would soooo get one of your wigs ..i wanna be a hot red head some times for my hunny. Good luck KIM prayers go with you .
Hey Kim I thought you were so cool in the first season and going into the second. It seemed the girls were pickin on you and you were the victim. I cleaned to your character, but in this new season you shocked me. Now don't get me wrong the girls can be too caty and we all like a little drama here and there, but for you to take away, "don;t be tardy for the party" after NeNe gave you the confidence to continue to persue it was awful. That's not the Kim I grew to love. So what if u messing around wit "Big Poppa", and his marital statis is married. I was involved with a similar issue and now were married so I hope the best for you, but you and NeNe should've been on that song together, instead of you getting the big head about the early production. I guess it's cool if you didn't want her as a friend from the first place though.
I do watch the show and I just want you to know it is ok to be in the company of positive people. And at this point Kandi is the only positive person on the show. Everyone elese is too busy back biteing behind each other's back.
Congrats on the song and your wig line! Thank you for taking the time to update your blog unlike some of the other ladies.
OMG!! I can't STOP SINGING THAT DAMN SONG!! LOL! Love it and I am so proud of you for plucking up the courage to sing in fount of Kandie and the guys for the first time. I cried when you cried because, honestly, we have ALL had a moment in life when we have had to over come our fears. YOU GO, GIRL!!
And if you ever do a book would you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE sign one for me? Your a Goddess! And NO, I am NOT gay, I just admire the hell out of you!
You go girl!! I really do like the song it's a great club,party jam, GOOD luck with it & don't worry about the Haters
Saw you on watch what's happening tonight and I loved your new wig. I also have thin hair due to illness and would like to know where you got yours and can I get one but shorter.
Kim it is more than obvious that you and Nene will never be the friends that you think you two are. Nene needs therapy because its seems to me she get off on putting people down, and people who are happy with who they are lifts others up.I don't know if she is just doing it for television or not. Just seems a bit much.
I DO NOT I REPEAT I DO NOT LIKE KIM! SHE IS SO DAMN PHONY. DRAMA QUEEN. I HAVE BEEN WONDERING WHY NENE TREATS HER THE WAY SHE DOES. NOW I SEE AND KNOW EVERYONE ELSE SAW IT TOO. WHAT THE HELL WAS SHE CRYING FOR IN THE STUDIO AND I KNOW EVERYONE SAW HER PERFORMING WHILE SITTING IN LIMOSINE AFTER HURTING HER LEG. SORRY FOR THE FALL BUT YOU WERE NOT HURTING AS MUCH AS YOU PRETEND. SUCK IT UP AND MOVE ON.
BY THE WAY, YOUR SINGING SUCKS!
Love the single Kim! keep it up. It gave me inspiration on my book im writing. Stay looking fab! love you the most out of the other girls, they are jus thaters because they dont have a single out, and they dont have beautiful hair and lips like you and of course boobies! haha. keep it up!
Kim - you are looking really great! Your hair is soooo much better than last season. Last year I too was wearing a "piece" as a white girl with medication induced hair loss.... anyway.... I was alway worried about it being noticeable. Finally, I took it off.....just wore extensions and viola..... 4 months later....my hair has filled in..........Please try it! You look amazing as a brunette too! Your hair will grow better if you don't bleach the roots! Seriously, I know what I'm talking about. Anyway, keep it up.... I really hate how the biotch's treat you! Kandi is the only cool one....I'd just hang out with her if you're forced to hang out with castmates........
I just wanted to say Kim congrats on the single I love it. U rock. I am so glad u decided to go forth and shut all the haters up that said u cant sing, you go girl. Do your thing and dont let none of the other hating Atlanta bitches bring u down. Remember your haters are your biggest fans and jealous ones always envy. You go girl Great Job!
Hi Kim, Congratulations on your song and good luck with your wigs. I love you and just want to be a cheerleader for you. You are about the only one I see on the show who spends time with your children. Do they film the other Housewives with their children. Do they actually spend time with them and get edited out? It appears that you are the only one who spends time w/ your children. I felt bad when Sheree and Nene attacked you in that restaurant then out on the street. That was indeed ridiculus. Loved your helmet and sense of humor. You go girl!!!
At times i feel like you do a little bit to much. All the crying and what have you. Sometimes i feel like you are just wasting time when you have stuck your foot in your mouth you knew you couldnt sing from the get go...and when Kandi fixed that song if she wouldnt have made you do it you would have bagged out...im glad to see you tried because you do have 2 girls and you should be a role model to tell them to do whatever they want regardless of what people say...take heat to that...
You might want to check your facts with your song. The closest to any chart number you have gotten to is 38. And not only that, iTunes has released a statement saying you were never in the top of any chart nor even in the charts for caller tunes/ring tones (who knows you've named off too many different charts). It's a catchy song, Kandi is awesome I'll give it that but you really, really suck at singing. But for the fact that Kandi is an expert in her field and the help of synchronized vocals to modify your voice you wouldn't have squat.
It was great to see you overcome your fears, your song sounded great.
It's a shame how much NeNe and Lisa love to trash you like it's their job. I really don't enjoy thier mean jabs all the time, it's ugly.
I hope you and Kandi have formed a good friendship, she seems like a very nice woman. Best of luck.
Also...your daughter seriously wrote these lyrics at 9 years old? Talking about guys getting "in mine"??? I seriously doubt that... And yeah...I thought that country guy wrote the lyrics to the original version...
Good for you Kim on your song and I'm glad you finally found a true friend in Kandi, stick with her she's a smart, classy lady! Be careful of NeNe she acts like a obsessed, jealous boyfriend. Although I wouldn't be surprised if she was a man.
Hey Kim, Glad you faced your fears, but next time don't waste people's time like that! You wanted to start a wig line, but didn't want to go to beauty school. Then you go to a recording studio and didn't want to sing. I'm sure you were nervous, but people don't just make money sitting around. They actually work. I totally see why you're concerned with Nene. She has a strong personality and people like that tend to prey on sensitive people. Didn't she kinda invite herself to the recording anyways?
Kim, I think what kandi did for don't be tardy for the party was great. But I do believe that NeNe,gave you the idea to make something out of it,you remember the first season and NeNe came over to your house and you put that on.You acted like you really didn't like it,then NeNe started doing a club like thing with it and then you liked it.Also when kandi took Nene to her car to listen to the cd of don't be tardy for the party,it was NeNe suggestion to kandi to make it other than country.To me,all during that show the first season NeNe was singing that song even in the car with lisa and her husband.So in essence NeNe planted the seed.It is so wrong for you to not have included her in the song,and I'm not the only one who thinks so.You claimed that you loved NeNe and that your children love her to,how could you do that to her?
