Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kim Zolciak at Home


In case you missed it, Bravo aired the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta this weekend.  So we figured now would be a good time to feature the homes of the cast members of the show.  First up, the home of singer Kim "Tardy for the Party" Zolciak (pictured in her bedroom above). 

If you watch the show, then you know that Kim is NOT a housewife.  She's the divorced mother of two girls and the side piece of a married man she refers to as "Big Poppa."   He is allegedly caking her with riches so she can live the life of a pampered housewife.

So we were surprised (okay, not really!) to find that Kim lives in a fairly ordinary townhouse in Duluth, a somewhat affluent suburb of Atlanta.

We realize that reality stars are not highly paid actors, so we don't expect them to all live in fancy homes.  The thing is, Real Housewives is supposed to be about upscale women who already have money to support a lavish lifestyle. 

There's nothing particularly lavish about the exterior of Kim's home (above).

So what about the inside?

See the INSIDE PHOTOS after the jump!!!

While the inside isn't lavish either, we find it to be a pleasant and tasteful home.  We like the black painted coffered ceiling:


That same ceiling stretches into her kitchen, which is also nice enough:


Okay, we find her dining room to be a bit furniture showroom-ish, with its unused Versace china on display:


Likewise for her bedroom, as seen in the top photo and this one below:


Though we like the tufted bench, we think her room looks uncoordinated and a little crowded too, like she went to one store and bought everything she saw there.

Her daughters' rooms are a bit more thoughtful-looking.  They are modest and girly-sweet:




Looks like, despite her over-the-top persona, Kim provides her family with a simple, traditional lifestyle.  We think that's terrific--and it's more than we can say for some of the others!

  1. I really like her children's rooms and the black coffered ceiling in the kitchen.

    The black coffered ceiling in the living room doesn't work as well because there's already so much black in the room (not enough contrast).

    What do you think?

  2. Great question BeachGal! We think the living room mostly works, but the speckled curtains should definitely go.

  3. I like Kim's townhouse. The livingroom and kitchen is nice even if there is a lot of black.
    Don't care for the diningroom artwork, too much for family holiday meals.

  4. I think she and Big Poppa have a deal going. Live in a modest home then you can spend all you want.
    She has a pretty good deal.
