'Real Housewives of Atlanta's' Kim Zolciak Gets Bravo Spinoff Series
After months of speculation, Bravo has officially announced that The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak is getting her own spinoff: Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding.
"I am so excited to give an up close and personal look at the next chapter in my life,” Zolciak says. "My life has turned into a true Cinderella story and to watch the pieces unfold is going to be great! I can't wait to share with all of you!"
The 30 minute series captures Zolciak’s whirlwind romance with football player, Kroy Biermann, as they purchase and move in to a new multi-million dollar home, have a baby, and get married.
The couple recently married on Nov. 11 and the series will capture the fastpaced planning of the wedding with just two months of lead time.
Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding is produced by True Entertainment for Bravo. Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin and Dominick Pupa serve as Executive Producers. The network did not announce a premiere date for the series.
Zolciak is the fourth Real Housewives cast member to score a spinoff from the network. Bethenny Frankel landed Bethenny Getting Married?, which was renamed to Bethenny Ever After for Season 2. Earlier this year, Bravo announced that Zolciak’s Atlanta cast mate, Kandi Burruss, will star in a special in which she’ll discover new talent titled, The Kandi Factory. And back in 2008, Jo De La Rosa of The Real Housewives of Orange County starred in Date My Ex.
Note: An earlier version of this article mistakenly stated that Zolciak was the third Housewife to get a spinoff.
