After hitting screens on the first season of the real housewives of Atlanta in 2008, it became very clear that Kim Zolciak was here to stay. The strong-willed mother of two held her own in each and every housewife catfight and her genuine personality made her a hit with viewers. However, Kim was a single mother of two and her day to day occupation was a nurse. While viewers were initially confused as to how she lived this expensive lifestyle, Zolciak later revealed that she had a special relationship with a wealthy man, hiding his identity, she referred to him as ‘big poppa.’ Kim became accustomed to the wealth and knew that she had to take things into her own hands to be able to support her family.
While earning a lucrative salary from Bravo, Kim met the love of her life and husband, NFL player Kroy Biermann. The couple went onto have a child before they wed and of course they turned the nuptials into a reality TV affair and filmed it for their very own spinoff series. After a successful first season, producers green lit Don’t Be Tardy, following the lives of the Zolciak-Biermann brood of six.
The reality star also had people talking when her face and body began to change, forcing the mother of six to admit she had had a face and body overhaul, yet the biggest controversy came when she let her daughter jump on the surgery bandwagon.
Throughout her life in the spotlight, Kim has portrayed herself as a strong, independent woman who is fiercely protective over her family and driven by money. Although Zolciak has given fans a glimpse into her personal life, she has kept her background as private as possible. Through refusing to talk about her past and ex lovers, many began to question if Kim was hiding a big secret?
