How Kim Zolciak’s net worth was built

Singer and reality TV personality Kim Zolciak made a name for herself as a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” on the Bravo cable channel. After joining “Real Housewives” in 2008, she embarked on a country music career, releasing the single “Tardy for the Party.” She later turned the song into a dance tune and supported the single with a club tour.

She released two other singles, “Google Me” and “Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing,” which she dedicated to “Big Poppa,” a man whom she had dated during her first few seasons on “Real Housewives.” Zolciak left “RHOA” in 2012 and now stars in a spinoff of that show called “Don’t Be Tardy,” which follows the daily lives of Zolciak and her husband, NFL player Kroy Biermann, and their children. Zolciak married Biermann in 2011.
