‘Don’t Be Tardy’ Recap: Kim Zolciak Mocks Buffalo as Husband Kroy Biermann Heads There to Jumpstart His NFL Career

Everyone's tardy in L.A.! The Wednesday, November 2, episode of Kim Zolciak's laugh-tastic reality show, Don't Be Tardy, brought Us some exciting tidbits about Kroy Biermann's NFL career, along with an action-packed trip to the City of Angels. Move over Kim K. — there’s another reality star named Kim in Hollywood! Kim Zolciak! Get the joke? OK.

Kroy Says Football Is More Painful Than Birth

During a "dry needling" session with his physical therapist, we got to see Kroy squeal while being pricked with a needle. When Kim made fun of his tolerance for pain, the celebrated NFL player responded, "Try going on the NFL field and getting hit. You’re a woman, you're built for [birth]. Your hips spread apart and stuff." For someone whose wife has given birth six times, you’d think he’d know a little more about how painful it is.

Kroy Shuffles Off to Buffalo

Then, before we knew it, the Biermann family was headed for Los Angeles! Sadly, Kim had to travel sans Kroy, who had a last-minute trip to Buffalo to meet with the Buffalo Bills — who he later signed with in August of this year. Without going into too much detail, Kroy referred to it as a "a trip for my career." Later in the episode, Kim bragged, "I know a lot about Buffalo." When Brielle asked, "Would you live there?" Kim just stared back in silence. Uh-oh.

Brielle: The Intern With a Publicist

As everyone knows, Brielle Biermann is an aspiring on-camera TV host and is destined to move to Los Angeles and work the red carpet of her dreams. But everyone has to start somewhere. The 19-year-old called up her publicist, Jack Ketsoyan, who told her about her upcoming meeting with Access Hollywood, saying, "You could start off as an intern." An intern with a publicist — only in L.A.! 

At least the family chef Tracey Bloom believes in her. Tracey admitted, “She really is good. I mean, she’s a f–ked-up person, and she's very irresponsible, but I could definitely see Brielle on TV as a news reporter." Wait, is Tracey Bloom the family chef or the family joke writer?

Kim Calls Out Her Daughter Brielle

In an intentionally jokey comment, Kim may have accidentally body-shamed her own daughter. After a shot of Brielle scarfing down an In-N-Out burger in L.A., Kim said, "Brielle needs to stop eating. What do they call it? The freshman 15. Although she’s not in college." Yikes! She was trying to be funny, right? Who knew Kim was so against eating!

Brielle Disses Kim's Skincare Fragrance?

Later in the episode, Brielle and Kim took a trip to the Benchmark Cosmetics Lab to sample some of Kim’s potential fragrances for her skincare line, Kashmere Kollection. We think it was a diss when Brielle said, "It kind of smells like Yankee Candle." But maybe it wasn't a slight — maybe Brielle really loves Yankee Candles. Kim finally settled on her "perfect" scent — coconut lime. Between the skincare flavors and that In-N-Out scene, this episode made Us pretty hungry.

KJ: Child Star and Jewelry Thief

In addition to getting to watch the ball of energy that is KJ as he prepared for his big child-acting audition, we also got a chance to see him admit to being a jewelry thief. When Brielle and Kim were talking with their publicist about a $17,000 bracelet that was stolen from Brielle, the editing team cut to a shot of KJ admitting, “I throwed it away.” If his acting chops are anywhere as good as his jewelry-disposing chops, he’s destined for stardom.

Tell Us: Do you think Kim’s comments about Brielle’s body cross the line?

Don't Be Tardy airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
