'Don't Be Tardy' Stars Kim Zolciak's Daughter Brielle: 6 Things to Know About the Family-Loving Teen
It's no secret that the high school years of post-adolescents are filled with awkward moments, hairstyles, and fashions, but just imagine going through all of that on television. For Kim Zolciak's oldest daughter, Brielle, this is all too real, as she stars, alongside her mother on Bravo's Don't Be Tardy. Brielle, 17, is right at the peak of her "leaving the nest" moment, she just gets to do it on camera in front of millions of viewers.
In the recent episode of Don't Be Tardy, it was brought into question that Brielle might be doing when she is not at home and away from the Biermann clan. Kim, who says that Brielle is a pillar of example for those in her grade — even stating in her Bravo blog that another parent was letting her child go to a party because they knew Brielle was going to be there — says she isn't naive when it comes to what teenagers are doing nowadays. But that doesn't mean she doesn't trust Brielle when she asks if she has ever drank alcohol. It seems like Kim and her husband, Kroy Biermann, have a good grasp on the situation, where Brielle can spread her wings and slowly take off from the Biermann's (beautifully decorated, five bedroom, basketball court-included) nest.
In addition to being a good influence for her peers, here are six other things you should know about the oldest of six children.
She adores Kroy
Kroy Biermann, who plays for the Atlanta Falcons, adopted Brielle and her younger sister Ariana, Kim's daughters from a previous relationship, in 2013. Brielle undoubtedly adores Kroy, as she says in the caption that he has always treated them like his own daughters and "took the place of [their] missing father."
Her and her mom are really close (and twins)
Brielle's close relationship with her mom was evident back when Kim was on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But through the years of growing up, they seem to only strengthen their mother-daughter bond. And Brielle is the spitting image of her mother.
She walked in New York Fashion Week
In September 2013, Brielle made her catwalk — and New York Fashion Week — debut in the Tumbler and Tipsy by Michael Kuluva show.
She is all about her big family
You'd think being the oldest of six siblings would get tiresome, but Brielle seems to absolutely love her big family, and who wouldn't? She always posts pictures of her and her younger siblings on Instagram, declaring how much she adores them.
She has this to come home to each evening
In total bed envy, I had to include this incredible photo Brielle posted of her insane bedroom. In what looks to be a hybrid of a Shakespearian bed frame (I don't know, the flowers kind of give off that vibe) and Heaven, I've got one tip for Brielle... Live at home as long as possible, there's no going up from that bed.
Just to reconfirm: She is a well-behaved teen
In case you weren't buying Kim's story about Brielle being a 17-year-old angel, Brielle wanted to reconfirm that she is indeed a good kid, who doesn't get involved in any shady stuff. She also knows the age old proverb that any press is good press. You do you, Brielle.
