Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak announced today on Twitter that she and boyfriend Kroy Biermann are engaged. Yahoo! The two met when Kim was filming for RHOA at a charity event in the summer of 2010. They started dating soon after and had a baby boy, Kroy Jr., back in May.
I'm happy for crazy old Kim. She's definitely my favorite cast-member of any season because she's a confusing mix of self-awareness and shamelessness. I feel like she knows what she's doing, even when what she's doing is totally absurd. So the fact that she announced her engagement three weeks before season four of RHOA hits the air is no surprise. Kim's got a brain under that wig.
Not only will the engagement bring her publicity, it will also draw attention to her show. And rumor has it that she and Kroy are getting their own RHOA spin-off, much like Bethenny did from RHONY. What better way to kick-start your own reality show than with a wedding theme? It's Shakespearean and it's foolproof.
I can't wait to see how this all plays out for us on TV. Think Big Poppa will finally speak up now that his sugar baby is taken? Think Kroy will feel like less of a man because the ring he gave Kim has got to be nowhere near the size of the rock Poppa gave her? Think Kim will wear her real hair for the wedding?
I guess we'll have to wait and see. Or we could always Google Kim -- it's kinda what she wants us to do most.
Are you happy for Kim and Kroy?
