Though Kim is popular for being one of the main cast in Bravo’s reality television series, she attracted the attention of those who were reluctant to be enthusiastic about her when she started her “Don’t Be Tardy” spin-off which premiered on October 7, 2008. As though that wasn’t enough, she went on to capture their hearts with her “Tardy for the Party” hit single in 2009.
Eight years before that, Kim was a married woman. She was wife to Daniel Toce, who was locked up for molesting a 15-year-old girl. But the marriage only lasted for a while. Some say it’s three months but we have reasons to believe the marriage lasted for two years. Meanwhile, long before Kim met Toce, she had a controversial affair with a policeman who questioned her after she witnessed a crime. The sergeant was dismissed when the affair was exposed.
As fate would have it, Kim and NFL player, Kroy Biermann met, became lovers and her fame soared. Here are all the things you may want to know about the star. From her having plastic surgery to her income, house, husband, children, and career, we’ve got you covered.
How Much Is Kim Really Worth in 2021?
As earlier mentioned, it is estimated that Kim’s wealth is not less than $3 million. Although she makes a large chunk of her money from her reality television career, she also earns quite a good amount from her involvement in other endeavors such as her music career and her business venture, which saw her launch her skin-care line, Kashmere Kollections. Keep reading as we let you in on all the details of Kim’s entertainment career and business.
Details of Kim’s Reality Television Shows
Kim Zolciak rose to limelight in 2008 appearing as one of the original housewives in the Bravo reality TV series “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”. She starred for five seasons, for which she received a salary of $600,000 per season, making it a total of $3,000,00. Between the fourth and fifth seasons, Kim and her fiance at the time became the central characters in a spinoff show titled Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, which chronicled their lives and activities as they prepared for their wedding. She eventually left The Real Housewives in December 2012 to star in her own spin-off, “Don’t Be Tardy”.
Though there were speculations she won’t make it on her own show, the show which premiered on Bravo on April 26, 2012, has run successfully for seven seasons with the 8th season scheduled to premiere on October 6, 2020. The success is attributable to the initial focus of the show on the preparations for Kim’s marriage to NFL star Kroy Biermann. For her appearance on “Don’t Be Tardy” Kim was reportedly paid a salary of $1 million for each season, which is well above the salary of most other Bravo stars.
However, that changed in 2018 as a source told RaderOnline.com that “Kim is now making $125,000 per episode which comes out to $1.5 million for the season”. The reality star got the raise when she refused to shoot “Don’t Be Tardy” after she was accused of racism on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Nevertheless, the network was able to make her change her mind by offering a raise.
Meanwhile, Kim Zolciak later returned to The Real Housewives as a recurring character for its tenth season which aired from November 5, 2017, to April 29, 2018. She was also slated to star alongside her fellow Real Housewives cast member, NeNe Leakes, in a new reality show on Bravo known as NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches. But the network decided to scrap the show even before it aired one episode because the ladies could not just get on the same page, according to TMZ.
In 2015, Kim appeared in the 21st season of the TV game show “Dancing With The Stars” and was paired with professional dancer Tony Dovolani. Unfortunately, she could not pull through with the show as she was forced to withdraw after three weeks (in September 2015) as a result of a transient ischemic attack, which made it impossible for her to travel by air. Kim has also been a guest star on the “Ellen Degeneres Show” and “The Wendy Williams Show”
The Reality Star Has Released A Number of Songs
In addition to her reality television career, Kim is also good with the mic. She began working on a country music album in 2008 and on September 1, 2009, she released her debut single “Tardy for the Party” which was written by herself, Brandon Joel Bowles, Darnell Richard, and fellow TV personality Kandi Burruss, who also produced it. The single premiered on “The Wendy Williams Show” and following a small club promotion in addition to a performance at the 2010 White Circuit Party in Palm Springs, the song became among the top 10 dance charts on iTunes for a short while.
A month after its release, a report by the music sales data provider, MRC Data (formerly Nielsen SoundScan), revealed that “Tardy for the Party” had sold not less than 29,000 digital downloads. Mediabase, on the other hand, disclosed that radio stations had played the track six times. In 2010, the reality star released a remix EP of the song. She has also released other singles including “Google Me”, “Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing” and “Love me First”. Although we know Kim has really made some thousands of dollars from her music career, there is no record of how much she has made.
Kim Zolciak Turned Her Obsession With Skincare To Business
In 2016, Kim Zolciak launched her own luxury beauty and lifestyle brand known as Kashmere. Under the brand, she created Kashmere Kollections through which she sells different skin, hair, and body products, as well as blended oils and spa accessories. Most of the products are what she uses to tone, tan, and provide maximum protection for her face and body.
Although she does not mind getting injections if need be, Kim also maintains a flawless skin by sticking to a consistent routine. She told Us that she has always been obsessed with skincare. “It’s like I have a CVS in my house. When we travel, I have an entire suitcase just for my beauty products”, she told the media outlet in 2016.
Even though Zolciak had always had it in mind to start her own beauty line for years, she never got the push she needed until September 2015 when she suffered a mini-stroke. “It was like someone lit a fire under my ass. I realized I needed to do everything I wanted to do, so I made the time,” said the mom of six. Subsequently, she developed Kashmere in collaboration with Tim Sharif, co-founder of the shake company, 310 Nutrition.
In addition to a hydrating body wash, body scrub, and body butter, Kashmere bath and body products also include the Luxurious Skin Toning Oil which is sold for $59. The latter was inspired by a moisturizer Kim used to by herself in her kitchen. According to her, she was terrified of getting stretch marks while she was pregnant with her twins and as a result, “I was always at the stove melting down and mixing oils, and I vowed one day I would sell it.”
However, because her recipe left her clothes stained with oil, she had to fall back on the experts to make it better. She employed the services of a team of chemists who took her recipe and tweaked the formula to make it a dry oil. “Now it dries within minutes and leaves you feeling silky and moisturized,” Kim told Us. She went on to reveal her intention to go beyond making skincare products and true to her words, she and her two eldest daughters, Brielle and Ariana, came out with KAB cosmetics, which focuses on making lip kits, about three years later.
It’s not clear how much Kim’s company is worth at the moment, but it seems to be doing well as superstars like Kim Kardashian have made online posts about the company’s products, describing it as one of their favorites.
Quick Highlight Of Kim’s Income Sources
- Reality Television Shows
- Cosmetics Business
As much as we would have loved to include earnings from Kim’s other income sources, it is unfortunate that the details are currently unavailable. However, what she makes from her reality shows in addition to her music and cosmetic line are all contributory to her current net worth of $3 Million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
A Look at What The TV Personality Spend Most of Her Money On
While words like “sexy” and “hot” are an everyday term used in describing Kim, there have been insinuations about her going under the knife to enhance her looks. Among other things, it is said that her nose is fake, that she had a nose job. At a point, the Don’t Be Tardy star had to come clean.
She admitted that she has done several things surgically to improve the natural and physical structure of her body. She also talked about changing her “thick” legs if it’s possible. Nonetheless, Kim maintained that she didn’t do any facial plastic surgery, dismissing the nose job claims. Based on what she said, she has worked on her lips, remolded her boobs, and received a tummy tuck.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,947 while patients part with about $5,500 on average for a tummy tuck. Lip injections are also said to cost from $550 to $2,000 and it’s not done just once as patients will likely need to top off the lip filler every six to nine months.
Kim Zolciak is no stranger to extravagant spending. In October 2007, she made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen sporting limited edition Saint Laurent boots which costs $10,000. She actually admitted that the boots were very expensive adding, “My husband, [Kroy], that was the first time he was like, you know, really? I tried to say, ‘Oh, [our daughters] Brielle and Ariana and Kaia can wear ’em someday…’ It didn’t work”. According to the reality star, she considers “heirloom” potential when investing in clothing items. She also confessed that she was addicted to the Chanel brand.
Meet Kim Zolciak’s Husband and Children
Kim met her NFL husband Kroy Biermann in 2010 at a fundraising event, they got married a year later and together they have four children, Kroy adopted her two children from her previous marriage making their total number of children six.
The couple lives together with their children in their expansive mansion in Atlanta which they purchased for $900,000. The reality TV show “Don’t Be Tardy” is focused on the whole family.
