'RHOA' Star Kim Zolciak Will Regret Keeping Her Kids From Their Grandparents

kim zolciakIt's one thing to hold a grudge, maybe not speak for a while, but when it comes to family, don't you think you should always, just, come around? Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives of Atlanta doesn't necessarily believe in that. After her mother petitioned to be able to see her granddaughters, Ariana, 11, and Brielle, 15, Kim had her girls sign an affidavit saying that they didn't want to be forced to spend time with their grandparents "due to their actions at the wedding of [Kim and Kroy]."

And if you don't remember what "actions" at the wedding they're speaking of, let me remind you.

Kim's mother used a bathroom inside Kim's house during the wedding reception, instead of using a port-a-potty outside, as guests were instructed to do.

Granted, I'm sure Kim's issues with her mother are much deeper (I hope, anyway) than the fact that she ignored a bathroom rule, but still, it's sad to see these things go to court. Kim's asking that her mother's case to see her grandkids be thrown out, and that her mom reimburse her for all her legal expenses, to boot.

You know, I have to imagine that down the road, Kim will regret this decision to keep her kids away from her parents. After the Housewives patina has completely worn off, all that'll be left is family. Caroline Manzo said as much at The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, and it's true. These 15 minutes of fame will be over before you know it, and when that happens, you'll have to take a look at the people around you and find happiness and fulfillment in real love, not love from the fans.

Alienating those who'll allegedly be there for you, like your parents, doesn't seem like a good idea, even if they are, say, "unfit" and total assholes. There's no time like present to start working on that relationship, and having your (hopefully) unbiased kids build that bridge for you is a great place to start.

It's too bad, I think, that Kim doesn't see it that way.

Have you ever kept your kids away from their grandparents?
