See Photos of a Young Kim Zolciak with Brunette Hair Before The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Look back at the “Don’t Be Tardy to the Party” singer’s years as a brunette and single mom of two

Before Kim Zolciak-Biermann was on The Real Housewives of Atlanta or ever “Tardy to the Party,” she was an Atlanta-based mom of two: Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann.


Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

But as Bravo fans know, this blonde Georgia peach’s roots are actually in Connecticut (and they are actually brunette).

Kim recently revealed that she will not be back on RHOA the forthcoming Season 16.

“As much as I enjoyed holding a peach for years and enjoyed popping in now and then, I will not be returning to the show,” she told Celebuzz! “I am sorry to disappoint those who were holding out hope that I’d return and they would get to watch me in action again this season.”

She did, however, leave fans with some hope to see her elsewhere: “That doesn’t mean that you’ve seen the last of me yet on TV so stay tuned for more on that in the near future.”

But while we wait, look back on pictures of Kim as a young woman (and a young mom), from the mid-90s through the mid-aughts.

Kim’s eldest daughter, Brielle, was born on February 25, 1997. Kim was just 18 years old at the time.

For Brielle’s 25th birthday, Kim wrote a touching Instagram post.

“Every birthday of yours I look back and reflect on how YOU truly gave me strength. A drive I never knew existed within me,” she wrote. “I didn’t know how we were going to do this … it was me and you buddy. We made it!!”

“I must say I’m extremely thankful for ‘WIC’ and subsidized housing because, without them, I never would have been able to attend nursing school/ have a baby/survive,” she added.

Kim’s second daughter, Arielle, was born on October 17, 2001.

“Happy 22nd Birthday to my heartbeat, Kim wrote on Instagram for Arielle’s birthday in 2023. “Your independence, your strength, your love for others, your determination, your heart, and your love for God daily reminds me of what an incredible human being you truly are.”

Kim told the Courant that she moved to Atlanta when she was 21, after her parents had moved down there.

“I don’t miss the snow as much as I miss going to the beach,” she said of her home state.

Brielle got engaged to baseball player Billy Seidl in Scottsdale, Arizona on Feb. 28, and Kim posted Brielle’s engagement photos on Instagram shortly after the announcement.

“Nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids happy!” she wrote. “It’s the best feeling EVER!! Love you both to the moon and back and look forward to allllll the years to come.”

Both Brielle and Ariana were adopted by Kim’s husband, Kroy Biermann, in July 2013 — two years after the couple married.

“Really blessed with the best dad in the world. It takes a real man to show up and show out the way he did for me and Ariana,” Brielle wrote in an August 2021 Instagram post.

At the end of 2023, Kim shared some of her goals for 2024 in her Instagram Stories. They included: “trusting in the process, being more present, less worrying, letting go of things that no longer serve me, surrounding myself with amazing people who are willing to grow and learn with me, being more open to the possibilities.”
