Kim Zolciak On Her Mama Drama: "Being a Mother Does Not Give You a Free Pass"

Bravo Events 2013

She spent all last year planning a dream wedding — only to end up calling the cops to have her mother removed. Yet somehow, things will get even crazier for Kim Zolciak on the new season of Don’t Be Tardy…, whether that means having a fourth child (her second with husband Kroy Biermann) or her mom taking her to court and shopping a tell-all book. Kim talks to Star about her chaotic life.

Are you forever known as the girl who called the cops on mom?
What’s gone on is very hurtful, but being a mother does not give you a free pass. I would never treat my girls the way that my mother has treated me.

Has motherhood come naturally to you?
I never thought that I would be a mom of four! I have one breast-feeding, one just learning to eat food, an 11-year-old who is mother’s little helper and a 16-year-old about to get her license.

And when the season starts, you’re crammed into a townhouse.
We don’t have space! It’s me and the kids with Kroy trying to watch TV on the couch at night.

Do you miss alone time? Oh, yeah. I like to have a little bit of spontaneity with my husband here and there, but that doesn’t happen in this house!

At least you’re building a dream home. It really has a two-story closet?
That is true. It has a spiral staircase down to the next level, which is dreamy.

But isn’t your favorite outfit sweatpants?
I love ’em! I’m wearing them right now. I get dressed up so much for appearances and filming that as soon as I’m done, I put my sweats on. My stylist cusses me out every day.

Kroy doesn’t mind?
He thinks I look better with no makeup and wigless and in my sweats. So it works.

Don’t Be Tardy… Premieres Tuesday, April 16, at 9PM on Bravo
