This season of Don't Be Tardy has been big for Brielle Biermann. She graduated from high school, revealed that her five-year plan included marriage and kids, and learned what it takes to be an E! News correspondent.
Of course, there have been some major developments in Brielle's personal life over the past couple of weeks, too — namely, that she and her boyfriend Slade Osborne, who has appeared on Don't Be Tardy, officially broke up. That's unfortunately just another part of this thing called adulthood that 18-going-on-19-year-old Brielle is going to have to continuously learn how to navigate.
Along the way, it wouldn't hurt Brielle to listen to some empowering advice from mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who has had her fair share of ups and downs over the years. The words of wisdom that we've seen Kim give out on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Don't Be Tardy could help Brielle face anything in the future.
"Don't be tardy for the party."
Kim's first single and the inspiration for the title of her show is all about showing up to have a good time. However, it's also a reminder to make the most out of life before it's too late. Who knew Kim's song could be so motivational?
"Let him chase you. Why would you chase him?"
Kim said this to Brielle when she told her mom about a cute French foreign exchange student at school during Season 3 of RHOA. Taking Kim's relationship history up to that point into account, Brielle wasn't too keen on listening to her mom's advice. But now that Kim has been happily married to Kroy Biermann for nearly four years, perhaps Brielle should take these words more seriously when she gets back into the dating game.
"I sold all the crap and kept all the good stuff."
Here, Kim is referring to the yard sale she organized to get rid of most of the furniture she bought hoping move in with Big Poppa. As Kim said on RHOA, her relationship with him was "a hot mess," so saying bye-bye to this stuff was a symbolic closing of that tumultuous chapter of her life. Similarly, learning to let go of a hurtful past without getting rid of "the good stuff" could benefit Brielle tremendously.
"Anybody that chokes me once and then comes at me again, third time, I'll be six feet under."
The old adage "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me" is so cliche. Brielle should use this Kim-approved mantra referring to her roller coaster ride of a relationship with NeNe Leakes in Season 4 of RHOA.
"Nothing energizes a body like a good body wrap, rest, and relaxation, and we all know I'm a pro at that."
The period after hitting a rough patch in your life is the perfect time to get refreshed and start anew. We're not going to say Brielle should necessarily subscribe to Kim's idea of a workout, but she should definitely find some sort of revitalization technique so she can feel ready to take on whatever comes her way next.
"I could die tomorrow, and I'll be damned if I die starving myself or not eating a peanut butter cup."
Kim has a bit of a sweet tooth, so much so that she doesn't get the point of eating healthy if it's just going to make her miserable. Brielle should follow Kim's lead and live life to the fullest — but maybe also eat a salad every once in a while?
"I'm at the stage in my life where life begins at the end of your comfort zone."
Much of Kim's Atlanta Women's Expo keynote about overcoming adversity featured on Don't Be Tardy this season was empowering. However, this opening line of the speech was especially powerful. Brielle should remember that the end of one thing in life is also usually the beginning of a new, important chapter.
What else does the future hold for Brielle? Be sure to catch her visit with Kim's psychic on the season finale of Don't Be Tardy on Thursday, November 5 at 10/9c.
