Today in some super random news: Khloé Kardashian gave Kim Zolciak a personalized gingerbread house. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star recently gifted her Real Housewives of Atlanta pal the holiday gift, and it wasn't like this was any old flimsy treat-based house. It was a huge decadent one with Zolciak's name on it. It was fit only for a true friend... but who even knew these two reality stars were friends at all?
Zolciak posted about Kardashian's gift in a video on her Instagram story. In the video, she gave her fans a glimpse of the creation and said, "This seriously has only been in my house maybe 15 hours, from the amazing Khloé" and continued to explain that the tiny candies that surrounded the gingerbread house were already promptly devoured. In a follow-up video, Zolciak catches her daughter Ariana Biermann mid-candy bite. So, the whole Zolciak-Biermann fam was into Kardashian's gift.
Their friendship may come as a surprise to some. But, when you think about it, it makes total sense. Kardashian and Zolciak are both reality TV stars (on series' that are both in the NBC Universal family) who tell it exactly like it is. It's almost as though the pair's friendship was inevitable, and there is evidence that they have been friends for a couple years now.
The two reality stars have been photographed hanging out on more than one occasion. According to Us Weekly, in August 2016, Zolciak and her husband, Kroy Biermann, took a trip to Los Angeles. While there, they met up with none other than Kardashian. The Don't Be Tardy star captioned a photograph of them all hanging out, along with Malika Haqq, Khadijah Haqq McCray, and Bobby McCray, with "I guess I should just move here".
Zolciak and Kardashian, along with the Haqq sisters, also met up in July 2015 when the RHOA star was visiting Los Angeles. She captioned a photo on Instagram of them all with, "What a great night!!!" and that she simply adored Kardashian and the Haqqs.
Then, in October of this year, Zolciak commented on reports that Kardashian is pregnant. When Bravo's The Daily Dish asked her about the reports in October, the RHOA star said, "Oh my God. She would be an incredible mom so I always want what's best for her and whatever she wants. But I adore her for sure." She added, "That's definitely my girl."
Then, in November, a certain Snapchat video that Zolciak posted made some question if she was confirming that Kardashian is pregnant. The reality star said, via Refinery29, "I’m thankful that I don’t have a f*cking sister because I'd be really pissed throughout my pregnancies." She then said to her daughter Brielle Biermann, "Show Khloé/Chloe how big her t*ts are going to be when…" She continued to try and get her daughter to lift up her shirt to "show Khloé/Chloe", which she eventually did in the video.
The whole ordeal caused a stir not only because it was uncomfortable to see Zolciak encourage her daughter to do that, but also because some thought it confirmed reports that Kardashian was pregnant.
Zolciak later explained that the video was meant for her friend "Chloe" and was supposed to have been sent privately:
Since the two reality stars do have a past together, and the timing fit with when the pregnancy was reported, it's no surprise people thought she was talking about Kardashian.
It's unclear exactly when the pair's friendship first began. But, the news of a Kardashian/Zolciak friendship, complete with gingerbread house gifts, is certainly news to any reality TV fan.
