The cast of Don’t Be Tardy has once again spoken out about a scandal that has been following them all week. Kim Zolciak and daughter Brielle recently slammed trolls who said things that were, “absolutely disgusting,” about an image Brielle shared of herself sitting on her dad Kroy Biermann‘s lap on his birthday. In an interview promoting the upcoming season 8 premiere of Don’t Be Tardy, the pair don’t mince words.
Kroy is Brielle’s Father in Every Way That Matters
In an interview with Us Weekly, both Kim and Brielle spoke about the upcoming season 8 premiere. They also addressed criticisms over an image shared on social media by Brielle. The image depicted 23-year-old Brielle sitting on 35-year-old Kroy’s lap at his birthday dinner celebration. Although Kroy is not Brielle’s biological father, Kim’s husband adopted her daughters officially in 2013.
Of the adoption, Biermann told E! in 2013, “In order to keep balance you have to have priorities. Our careers are our priorities, our kids, our health, our happiness… Before Kim and before the girls and before the boys, I lived a pretty regimented life. I’d wake up, eat breakfast, go to work, come home…it was pretty normal. Now, my house isn’t going to be as clean as it was before, but it’s not important. Those things are not important and it’s all about prioritizing and understanding.”
Kim says of him adopting her girls, “I don’t know if I could love anybody else’s children as much as Kroy loves the girls. I just don’t know if I have it in me.” The couple has 6 children together total.
Trolls See Something to Mock
After Brielle shared the image, trolls immediately swooped in. One commented, “Why you sitting on your momma husband lap?” Brielle replied, “honestly bc i had no where to sit we were making jokes the whole time about him being Santa it was comedy.”
But the Don’t Be Tardy star’s patience wore thin, and when one troll asked if Brielle and Kroy had ever, “hooked up,” the 23-year-old snapped in disgust, “do you hook up with your dad?”
Kim Speaks Out Right After It Happened
In an interview with Life & Style right after the comments were made, an aggravated Kim responded to them; “I think people are f—king really bored … I’m so blown away by the comments that people actually write and say,’ says the Dancing With the Stars alum. ‘But again, and I tell my girls this too, it’s a direct reflection of them. It has nothing to do with my life. I am who I am. I would never write a nasty comment to somebody.”
Now Both Kim and Brielle Show a United Front to Trolls
As Us spoke to the mother-daughter duo about the upcoming season 8 premiere, they had a few things to say about the trolls. Us shares Kim’s words, “‘I think it’s absolutely disgusting. I think it’s coming from ignorant, uneducated people,’ the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 42, told Us Weekly exclusively while promoting the upcoming season of Don’t Be Tardy. ‘I think it’s quite disrespectful to Kroy as well.’”
Brielle added that she finds the comments absolutely appalling; “My mind doesn’t go there. He’s my father. It’s disgusting. These people need help. They’re sick.”
The Pair Are Tired of the Trolls
It’s clear that Kim and Brielle are absolutely over the trolls. They’ve spoken out several times about how disgusted they are, and hope that people will move on. With season 8 of Don’t Be Tardy premiering on October 6th, soon people will have plenty of other Biermann Family news to discuss. With any luck, mother, daughter, and father can all put the troll comments behind them soon.
