Set all the alarms in your house, because Don't Be Tardy is returning for Season 4. The Kim Zolciak-Biermann Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff makes its return to Bravo on Sunday, Aug. 16, followed immediately by the Season 2 premiere of Caroline Manzo's Real Housewives Of New Jersey spinoff, Manzo'd With Children. This is a huge TV night for Housewives fans, especially since — in my opinion — Atlanta and New Jersey can boast the most fun groups of ladies in the franchise. Anyway, Kim, her husband Kroy Biermann, and their brood of six kids are back for more family shenanigans in South. So, what can you expect from the new season of Don't Be Tardy ?
Season 3 was a ridiculously big year for the Zolciak-Biermanns. Twins Kaia and Kane were born, Kroy adopted Kim's eldest daughters Brielle and Ariana, and Kroy returned to his football career after an injury. Life isn't slowing down for this crew in the new season. Bravo promises, "With family trips to Destin, Florida, Los Angeles and Kim’s hometown of Windsor Locks, Connecticut, this Biermann bonanza is chalk-full of hilarity and hijinks, so hold on to your wigs for a wild ride." Noted! Here are some other recent Zolciak-Biermann life events that you should expect to see on Don't Be Tardy Season 4:
Kroy Signs A New Contract
He entered free agency last year, opening up the possibility of him signing with a team other than the Atlanta Falcons. Now, not only had Kroy played for the Falcons for five years, but his family has basically become an Atlanta institution. How could the city survive without the Zolciak-Biermanns? Luckily, he entered into a new agreement that keeps him with the team, and hopefully we'll learn more about the whole situation on the show.
Brielle Graduates From High School
Kim's little babies are growing up! This spring, daughter Brielle graduated with the rest of the Cambridge High School Class of 2015, proud mama and family looking on.
Kim Defends Ariana Against Internet Bullies
After some gross trolls decided to give their unsolicited opinion of daughter Ariana's appearance in the comments of this Instagram photo, Kim got (figuratively) all up in their faces: "Can you imagine if you took the time to write something positive or nothing at all how wonderful this world would be!!!" she wrote in response. "You leave my baby alone she is a child!!!!" Unfortunately, nasty comments are all too prevalent, especially with reality television fame. With teen daughters in the public eye, that negativity and Kim's defense of her children will probably come up on camera too.
An In-House Matchmaking Service
In its Season 4 press release, Bravo teases Kim's devotion to matchmaking her staff, promising that their boss will be meddling with the love lives of chef Tracey Bloom and stylist Shun Melson. Cannot wait.
A Kardashian Cameo
Kim posted this Instagram in July after a dinner with Brielle, Khloe Kardashian, and Khloe's BFFs and stars of the upcoming Dash Dolls spinoff, Malika and Khadijah Haqq. I need more of these power-lady friendships on my TV, so I hope some of their hangs will make it on screen.
Don't Be Tardy surely has some surprises in store too, so I won't be missing a moment of the new season.
