Name: Kimberleigh Marie Zolciak
Born: May 19, 1978
Occupation: Television personality and singer
Kim Zolciak was born on May 19, 1978 in Pensacola, Florida. Raised as a Roman Catholic in an Italian family, she is the daughter of Joseph and Karen and is the brother of Michael. She grew up in Windsor Locks, Connecticut in a military family.
Kim attended East Catholic High School in Manchester, Connecticut and graduated in 1996. She then attended the University of Connecticut and studied nursing. Kim would later move to the suburbs of Atlanta, where her parents had relocated.
Kim, an admitted bisexual, has been in multiple relationships over the years, which led to her having two daughters, Brielle and Ariana. She was married to Dan Toce between 2001 and 2003. In 2010, she dated DJ Tracy Young. In that same year, she met Kroy Biermann, an Atlanta Falcons football player, and the couple eventually wed a year later. They now have four children, Kroy Jagger, Kash, Kane and Kaia – Kroy filed papers to adopt her other daughters. The family currently resides in Atlanta.
She started to work on a country music album in 2008 and released her debut single called “Tardy for the Party” a year later. She also performed a remix of the song in 2010. Kim then released a couple of other hit songs including “Google Me” and “Love Me First.”
Kim and Kandi Burruss entered into a bitter lawsuit when it was alleged that Kim had sold the song without Kandi’s authorization. Kandi is seeking profits from the sales, a moratorium on future sales and punitive damages.
Kim is mostly known for her appearance on the hit reality television series “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” She made her debut on the show on October 7, 2008. This led to a spin-off show called “Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding,” which followed her wedding preparations. The show’s title was later revised to “Don’t Be Tardy…” Kim nearly landed another reality show with fellow RHOA star NeNe Leakes, but the Bravo network decided against it.
Over the years, Kim has been seen on numerous television shows. Many will remember her competing on “Dancing with the Stars” during the dance competition’s 21st season. She had to withdraw three weeks into the competition because of a transient ischemic attack.
We estimate that Kim Zolciak’s net worth is $1.7 million (2016).
So how much is $1.7 million really?
Although Kim is worth more than other cast members, her net worth is smaller than that of NeNe Leakes ($12 million) and Kandi Burruss ($35 million).
$1.7 million can buy you tens of thousands of copies of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Don’t Be Tardy…” $1.7 million can also buy you hundreds of thousands of downloads of her three single songs.
