‘Don’t Be Tardy’ Recap: Kim Zolciak Reveals Which Cities She Wouldn’t Move to for Kroy Biermann’s Career

Everything is moving at a rapid pace for Kim Zolciak — well, everything except her latest hire. In Don’t Be Tardy‘s Wednesday, September 21, episode, the 38-year-old reality star grappled with the possibility of relocating to a new city while also dealing with Brielle, her assistant-slash-daughter who prioritizes just about everything above actually assisting.

Kim Might Move to (Gasp!) Wisconsin

The drama started with Kim and her husband, Kroy Biermann, stuck in traffic. Another annoying Atlanta rush hour led to the discussion of Kroy’s free agency and the uncertainty that comes along with playing in the NFL. “Free agency is exciting,” Kim tried to convince the cameras (or herself). “Everything’s an adventure.”

That “adventure” suddenly turned into a nightmare when Kroy gently reminded Kim that she could only bring “four to five boxes” of her belongings if the family decided to move to another city for a year. Kim shuddered in horror when Kroy had the audacity to suggest she could pick up a few outfits at the mall.

Kim was able to put that terrorizing thought aside as she and Kroy met with his agent, Buddy Baker. Out of curiosity, Buddy asked Kim what cities she wouldn’t want to move to. “There’s a long list,” Kim quipped. “Wisconsin would put me over the edge.”

Buddy told Kim he thought Kroy would actually do great at Green Bay, which Kim met with a look of pure disgust. “Tampa, Miami, New York City — let me live there,” Kim later told the cameras. “Wisconsin … I mean, what am I going to do there?”

Kroy Breaks Down the Potential Move

After their meeting with Buddy, Kim and Kroy spent the next few days trying to get a sense of how the kids felt about the potential move. Soon-to-be high school freshman Ariana insisted she was happy with her life and friends in Atlanta.

Brielle offered to hold down the fort if Kim and Kroy decided to leave, but she was visibly confused when Kroy said he had to “quantify” his options. Kroy had to explain the process of free agency to her in layman’s terms — that is, after he explained to her in layman’s terms what “layman’s terms” meant.

Brielle Is an Assistant Who Hates Assisting

Brielle showed signs of struggle as she adjusted to her new “job.” The 19-year-old was hired as Mom’s assistant in exchange for free rent.

“She runs errands,” Kroy explained of Brielle’s position. “But it’s not really running. In a sense, it’s more like walking errands.”

For her part, Brielle said she felt her mother demanded a bit too much from her. “Does she expect me to sleep with my phone on loud? No,” Brielle scoffed.

Kroy accused Brielle of being clueless, but things started to make sense when Kim confessed a few scenes later that she didn’t care about “how things work.”

“I don’t need to know how that espresso machine works because I know Kroy is going to make my coffee,” she shrugged. It suddenly became very clear where Brielle got her attitude toward work.

Brielle Flexes Her Entrepreneurial Muscles

Upstairs, Brielle barged into Ariana’s bedroom to ask her if she’ll miss her friends when they move. Ariana insisted she didn’t want to leave Atlanta, and without missing a beat, Brielle called out her sister’s apparent fib.

“Really? Because like two or three months ago, you were like, ‘Please, Kroy, don’t stay with the Falcons! We could go literally anywhere else. I’m so tired of this place. Blah, blah, blah!’”

Ariana met her older sister’s shrill mimics with an eye roll and flatly told her it was pointless to move if they’re just going to come back in a year. Brielle tried to hype Ariana up about the potential move, saying she could be like Hannah Montana and have two lives.

“Here, you could be, like, Goody Two-shoes. There, you could be a whore if you wanted to,” Brielle offered.

The sisters agreed that Wisconsin wouldn’t be ideal, but nothing could be worse than moving to a city without a certain poultry restaurant. “If they don’t have a Chick-fil-A, what are we going to eat?” Ariana said with panic, showing true emotion over the move for the first time.

But Brielle was quick to offer a feasible solution: Quit her job as Kim’s assistant and open a Chick-fil-A franchise to run. See, Kroy? Turns out Brielle can be a pretty innovative employee after all.
