If you think that Kim Zolciak-Biermann and 19-year-old daughter Brielle Biermann have little in common with Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, think again. There are plenty of ways the Atlanta mother-daughter duo channel the beloved fictional characters. Take for instance the fact that, like Lorelai, Kim became a mom at a young age, which may explain why she and her Don't Be Tardy daughter are as tight as the Stars Hollow residents. But the similarities don't begin and end there. In honor of Gilmore Girls' grand return (thanks to a new season on Netflix), we're taking a closer look at the shared traits between these two awesome mother-daughter teams.
1. They Are Caffeine Addicts
The Gilmore girls can't start any day without stopping by Luke's Diner for a cup of java. Down in the ATL, Kim and Brielle are just as keen on making sure they get their fix at Starbucks — sometimes with a side of Chick-fil-A.
2. They Have a Certain... Palate
Speaking of fast food, the Lorelai and Rory have a love anything that's sweet, salty, crunchy...basically any and all junk food.
We just don't remember them using red solo cups as often as the Biermann girls.
3. They Have a Special Rhythm to Their Conversations
Lorelai and Rory won our hearts thanks to their super-fast, pop culture-filled conversations that could one second be buzzing about the latest gossip in town to chatting about their favorite Go-Gos song.
Kim and Brielle also interact with a similar kind of passion that proves that the gift for gab runs in the DNA.
4. They've Assembled Incredible Squads
5. They Are Into Boy Talk
Remember how Rory and Lorelai basically told each other everything — including the latest updates on their love lives? Well, Kim and Brielle are also pretty open when it comes to matters of the heart.
So, are Rory and Lorelai for that matter...
6. They Redefine Mother-Daughter Style
Whereas Lorelai and Rory embraced all sorts of turn-of-the-millennium trends (so. many. little. scarfs...) — with a similar taste in preppy-chic style...
...Kim and Brielle are all about hitting up events in the hottest looks that veer more towards party-ready glam than New England prep.
7. They Always Have Each Other's Back
Listen up haters, when the times get tough, these two mom and daughter teams prove that their biggest ally lies in each other.
A motto that holds true for both duos.
