Don’t be tardy for the party!
Kim Zolciak-Biermann, star of her spinoff show Don’t Be Tardy, recently appeared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Kim previously starred on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and after the last reunion it doesn’t seem likely that Kim would ever return to the RHOA. Kim recently revealed that she wasn’t invited to Andy’s baby shower that was hosted by the OG Real Housewives, however; she had stated that Andy sent her a sweet text message about how he wished she were there. Kim asked Andy about this all during her WWHL appearance, and she also got an unexpected, unfiltered question from a caller!
Andy acknowledged that Kim didn’t get an invite. He said, “You were not invited to my baby shower, that is true.” Kim replied, “That’s weird, right?” Andy then added, “I will say that I texted you that day what I would consider to be a very nice text.” Kim acknowledged that he sent her a sweet text and that she appreciated it.
Andy explained that she wasn’t invited to the baby shower because it was supposed to be all current Real Housewives, and it was hosted by the OG’s. However; Andy did not have anything to do with the guest list. Andy explained, “But here is why you weren’t invited: Because it was all current Housewives who were invited and it was thrown by like, the five current Housewives.” The baby shower was hosted by the remaining OG Real Housewives Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson, Teresa Giudice, NeNe Leakes and Ramona Singer.
Of course, Phaedra Parks was in attendance and she is an alum of the RHOA. Andy said that Nene brought Phaedra “as a surprise.” Kim quipped back, “I was going to say, that bitch is old as f—. Like a couple years ago.” Andy said, “That was a surprise. But then that day I was thinking, ‘Man, it would have been so great if Kim was there.’ And that’s why I texted you. I said, ‘I just want you to know that I’m thinking of you and I wish that you were here.'”
Andy also added that Kim wasn’t the only former Real Housewife who wasn’t there. Andy said that alum of The Real Housewives of New York, Jill Zarin, had also reached out. Andy explained, “The problem is that then, look, I would have loved Caroline Manzo to be there, too!” Kim understood and wouldn’t have been able to make it anyway, because she had back surgery the day prior. Kim said, “It’s a lot for you to deal with. And you’ve done such a great job with all of our crazy f—ing a–es throughout the years. You really have. Because it’s a lot of pressure. Like, you can’t go to my wedding and not go to NeNe’s. So it’s a balancing act for you and I have to give up to you because you do it tastefully. I do mean that.” Andy said back, “Thank you. I appreciate that.”
Kim also got an unexpected, unfiltered question from a caller. It was a shock to Kim, Andy and everyone in the Bravo clubhouse. The caller asked, “Kim why do you look half your age on Instagram but twice your age on TV?” Woah! Everyone was surprised by this call and Andy kept it moving. “Oh, sweetie,” Kim started to say. Andy then stated that he doesn’t think that was supposed to be the question asked. Callers state what question they want to ask before they are patched through to the show. However; this was clearly not the question that was supposed to be asked. Bravo didn’t put it online, but The Shade Room captured it and posted it on social media.
I really enjoyed this episode of WWHL! I think Andy does a great job of balancing his attention among the Real Housewives and I think he’s very fair about it all. It’s sweet that he sent Kim a text the day of the baby shower, it’s clear that they do get along very well. As far as the caller questions on WWHL, I’m surprised that doesn’t happen more often! LOL! Kim and Andy really handled it well and kept it moving.
