The Daily Dish Don't Be Tardy

Is Botox the Secret to Kim Zolciak-Biermann's #DWTS Improvement?

The #DontBeTardy mom gave a strong performance in the ballroom and shares her ultimate goal: "buns of steel." 

By Jocelyn Vena

Don't Be Tardy's Kim Zolciak-Biermann proved that there's a tiny dancer lurking inside of the busy mom during Week 2 on Dancing With The Stars. After receiving a 12/30 in Weeek 1, Kim and pro dancer, Tony Dovolani, showed vast improvement with a quickstep that impressed the judges. Their dance to "Queen Bee" by Rochelle Diamante during this week's hometown glory night included smoother moves from Kim, which earned the duo a 19/30. 

How to Watch

Chaka Khan and her dance pro Keo Motsepe were the first pair to be eliminated, going home on Monday night's episode (September 21). Post-elimination, Kim spoke to Us Weekly and reflected on Chaka's departure. "She's really a joy!" she said. "It's so sad! She screams sex appeal. We'll miss her." As for her own progression as a dancer, Kim has been showing improvement — but not in the one area she was hoping for. "I still don't have buns of steel, I don't know why! Whatever. My calves might be stronger but who cares about my calves?" she said. "I need my butt to be buns of steel!"

She also revealed another way she prepped for Monday night's show: with Botox. "I had to get Botox. I have so much makeup on to cover the bruises," she said. "My doctor came in last night. It helps with my migraines. I've gotten it since I was 23. At the 90-day mark if I don't get it, I get horrible migraines. It really works."

And judging by her demeanor outside the studio, we can tell that Kim is definitely feeling more confident in her moves.
