Kim Zolciak Looks Great After Giving Birth & It's Not Because She's Rich (PHOTO)

kim zolciakReal Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is the latest celeb to give birth ... and then magically whittle away back to her (almost) pre-birth weight within minutes. Oh, and look, she's fresh as a daisy -- hair done, makeup perfect -- to boot. Celebs! They're just like us ... only the opposite!

Kim's 15-year-old daughter, Brielle, tweeted this pic of her mom, who just gave birth to baby Kash Kade, along with the caption: "Seriously... who looks like this after 2 weeks of having a baby?"

Seriously. Who does look like this two weeks after having a baby? Even if I was a rich celebrity with people catering to my every whim, this would not have been possible for me. Not for a second.

Hopefully, things will be different when I have my next baby, because I'll have a better idea of what to expect, but this time around? Hooo boy. I was a hot mess after giving birth. No, a hot mess.

Despite all the preparing I did, I had no idea how sore and ... banged up I'd be. Apologies if this is TMI, but I could barely walk the week following the birth of my daughter. And sleep? Yeah, that didn't happen at all. Whether the baby was sleeping or not, I was up. Be it because I was anticipating her getting up, or I was nervous. I don't know. But I do know it was insane. I don't think a team of 17 makeup artists and hair professionals and magicians and sorcerers could have made me look remotely presentable. I was way too overwhelmed.

So, hats off to Kim, I guess. And Kourtney and Hilary and Snooki, and any other woman in this world who can pull it together a bit after they've had a baby. Lord knows I couldn't. Hopefully, I'll have better luck next time. Dear God, hopefully.

What was your post-birth experience like?
