"The plastic surgery stuff is old," the "Don't Be Tardy" star tells TooFab while discussing trolls insulting her daughter Brielle Biermann.
Kim Zolciak has a message for all her haters: "Your opinion to me doesn't f-cking matter."
TooFab spoke to the "Don't Be Tardy" star about the upcoming season of the Bravo reality show right before her "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-star NeNe Leakes kicked up a new feud by insulting Zolciak's daughter, Brielle Biermann, on social media.
In case you missed Thursday's drama, Biermann posted a Snapchat video showing cockroaches in Leakes' bathroom, and the "Housewives" star lost it, calling the the 20 year old "#racisttrash" and a "fake" Kylie Jenner wannabe. Leakes added, "We don't have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky p-ssy."
Although Zolciak is not responding directly to Leakes in this TooFab interview given the insult exchange hadn't happened yet, her comments still addressed the general topic of dealing with vitriol on social media.
When asked why she thinks people come after her daughter on social media, Zolciak's answer was simple: "Because they're f-cking miserable."
"Like, you're behind a f-cking computer screen, so OK, so you feel like you have a voice, but your opinion to me doesn't f-cking matter when it's negative," Zolciak told TooFab. "It's gross."
In her Instagram rant, Leakes told Biermann to "go somewhere and let the air outta those fake lips, fake titties and fake ass," which isn't anything new in terms of criticism the Zolciak family has had to face.
"The plastic surgery stuff is old," Zolciak told TooFab. "Brielle's done her lips and Brielle's done nothing else. They accuse her of her dimples being fake. I mean, I posted pictures of the child when she came out of the womb with these big dimples in her cheeks. The plastic surgery comments that she got work done to look like me or the plastic surgery comments I get to look like her is like, 'Are you OK? She's my f-cking daughter."
But at the end of the day, Zolciak says she doesn't "worry about Brielle too much because she's very secure, confident and more of a leader than a follower."
"Brielle and I are very close," Zolciak added. "I can't imagine it being any different. I had Brielle at 19 years old, and at the end of the day, we did grow up together. I love our relationship. I'm still her mom, and I always will be her mom, but she also has become as she gets older like my best friend. But I'm her mom first."
Zolciak previously told TooFab she has three simple rules: "Don't mess with my man, my money or my kids."
See what else the reality star had to say about "Don't Be Tardy" Season 6 -- which premieres tonight -- in the interview below.
Season 6 already? Feels like the show just launched. How long do you see the show lasting?
I definitely feel like it's been one day since we had our first season. I can't even believe it. I hope it goes on forever. It's the best job in the world. I get to film with my family and get paid for it. I mean, I don't think it gets any better than that. My producers and camera guys and sound guys are like our family, so it's really fun.
And your kids are all grown up now!
And my kids -- it's so sad -- I have baby fever!
Would you have more?
Seven's like our lucky number, but it's an odd number, and I'm a big fan of even numbers. I love babies, but I do realize that they do grow up.
Speaking of babies growing up, there's talk of Brielle and Michael moving in together. Have they already moved in? How do you feel about the idea?
They're very serious. We adore Michael. I don't feel like she could've picked a better partner. He's just such a great guy, but she's 20 years old. She'll be 21 in February. I feel like she should experience life a little bit more, but I'm just giving my opinion. Brielle's an adult. She can choose and has chosen whatever she wants to do. But we think so highly of Michael and their relationship is so healthy and has been from day one. Kroy and I give our opinions and she decides ultimately at the end of the day what she's gonna do. I want her to live with me forever. And she goes, 'You’re so sick!' And I'm like, 'I'm not sick! I just want you to all live with me forever, or at least next door.'
So if it were up to you and you had the right accommodations, would all your kids and their significant others live with you?
Yep. If I could build my own street and build them all a house, I would want nothing more than that. I just feel like life is so short, and my kids are just so incredible. I'm really hoping that maybe I can do that, like maybe if I go to Turks and Caicos or something, they'll be like, 'I'm game, alright. We'll live next door.' But Georgia? I'm not so sure.
The trailer shows some footage from the day Kash was attacked by your dog. How did you decide to include that footage? Will you watch that episode?
Kash is incredible and he bounced back fairly quickly. He still actually has a black eye and it's been a few months, so the recovery process has not been overnight, unfortunately. It was definitely the hardest moment that I've ever been through in the 10 years that I've been on television. I can't even imagine reliving it. Bravo has been super respectful of that, and Kroy and I decided to share it because we want people to understand that it can happen to anyone. I wanted to use my platform to help people be very careful because we never thought in a million years that this would ever happen to one of our children. It's definitely gonna be very tough for me to watch. This is probably the first episode I may not watch, to be honest. When I get closer, maybe. I don't know that Kroy and I have any plans of reliving that whole situation.
Can you talk a little about your teenage troubles with Ariana?
Ariana -- her whole life is her friends and she loves to make people happy and she's a people pleaser, so I monitor her social media and delete a lot of the comments. People don't get to see Ariana as much because she's pretty shy. She's not into the whole glitz and the glam. She's super involved in school and my straight-A student, but when I do get to post a picture of her -- which she always has to approve -- people are like, 'Oh my God, you look just like your mom!' All the boys look like Kroy and all the girls look like me.
Does she have her door back yet?
She might! What's really tough is that she gets caught in everything she does. She tries to sneak out, whereas Brielle doesn't. But I don't even know how Brielle graduated high school, whereas my Ariana is a straight-A student. So it's like, God, how do you really discipline a straight-A student? We're very, very strict on who comes here and who hangs out with her and who's a part of her life, and we do kind of choose her friends. I'm very intuitive and I'm older, so I've obviously been through things and she hasn't.
Tell us about Tracey taking a lie-detector test in the trailer.
She's a huge part of our family. She's been with us for -- almost four years?! Wow, that's insane. But she tells lies. She lies to just lie. There's no ill-will. She's not mean about it, she just lies. Like, 'Tracey, what'd you do today?' 'Oh, nothing.' But meanwhile, she went on a roller-coaster, she stopped at the grocery store -- she tells lies just to lie, and I need to know the truth. You'll have to watch, and she definitely gets caught in some sh-t. I'm gonna do one like every 90 days for her now at this point.
Any plans for more music?
No, I mean Kashmere has grown so quickly, and then I have 'Housewives,' so recording is not really on the radar. I want to be a one-hit wonder. I just want to try everything and have fun. 'Don't Be Tardy For the Party' was so successful, and it was all done in good fun, so I can't say that I'll never do another song, but I'm definitely focused on Kashmere and my book, 'Don't Be Tardy' and 'Housewives,' etc.
A double episode of "Don't Be Tardy" Season 6 premieres Friday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
