With a new lease on life, she’ll never be tardy again! Kim Zolciak wowed Don't Be Tardy viewers with her remarkable TV comeback following her 2015 stroke and heart surgery that halted her stint on Dancing With the Stars.
Kim Booked Her Heart Surgery Around Dancing With the Stars
In the season 5 premiere on Wednesday, September 14, Kim smiled about the whole terrifying ordeal. The 38-year-old reality star admitted booking her “whole heart surgery around the finale of Dancing With the Stars.” It’s clear the experience was life-altering for her, as she joked, “I might even go camping again because of the damn stroke.”
Kroy Suggests Having Another Baby … in a Decade
The episode centered mainly around Kim going to the doctor to discuss freezing her eggs. While the star maintained that she does want another baby, her husband, Kroy Biermann, didn’t seem to share the sentiment. Of adding a seventh to their brood of six (including Ariana and Brielle from Kim's previous marriage), Kroy said in a joint confessional, “Right now? No. I dunno. In 10 years? Maybe.” Kim responded to his comment with some major side-eye.
Brielle Is Single and Ready to Bumble
Brielle and the family chef, Tracey Bloom, bonded over being single. Kim explained to the camera, “Sadly, Brielle and Slade broke up, which has been difficult on her.” The 19-year-old aspiring television host admitted, “I’m on Bumble.” Upon seeing Brielle’s scantily clad pictures on the dating app, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum said, “Everyone’s gonna like you, Brielle, with your tits hanging out!” Tracey then admitted to using a photo of herself and Brielle in her Tinder profile, saying that people ask her, “Which one are you?”
Kroy Is "Shooting Blanks" at the Moment
Kim admitted in a confessional that she already has a name picked out for her unborn seventh child. “If I could pick, I’d love to have another son, and his name would be Creed.” At the doctor’s office, Kim was concerned about her fertility following her stroke. Dr. Kenwich Hood assured her that freezing her eggs is their best bet at having another child. They even discussed the possibility of reversing Kroy’s vasectomy. Kroy told the camera about himself, “This guy’s shooting blanks right now. Doesn’t mean I’m not making bullets in the process.”
Ariana Doesn’t Want Another Sibling
Back at home, Ariana was not on board with the idea of having a sixth sibling. “All these kids are already annoying. They are not having a seventh child. They can have it after I leave.” Considering that Kroy and Kim already joked about having an “assembly line,” maybe Ariana’s suggestion isn’t so off-base!
Brielle Offers to Be Kim’s Gestational Surrogate?!
The episode wrapped up with a visit from Kim’s psychic, Rose. When asked if Kim would have more children, Rose responded, “You’re done. … We saw the twins were the last one there.” Kim joked to the camera about the palm-reading, “Rose isn’t God. I mean, Rose is 88 years old. It’s not good lighting.”
Kim later said, “If I want Creed, I can guarantee you Creed will be here." And Brielle responded with a bizarre offer: “Maybe I can be the one to carry it for you … to see if I like birth.”
