In an exclusive interview, Kim Zolciak this afternoon explained why she missed Kandi Burruss’ concert performance at Tongue & Groove, which aired last night on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“My daughter Brienna was really sick that night,” Kim said. She said she had called Kandi earlier and that Kandi was cool.
“She’s understanding,” Kim said. “I wouldn’t miss something like that especially after all the work she did on ‘Tardy for the Party.’ I wouldn’t just not show up.”
The producers did not explain why Kim wasn’t there. It gave the impression she just callously skipped it.
What upset her more: Lisa’s snide comment that Kim may have gotten a disease, a joke referencing Kim’s “cancer” scare she talked about at the first season reunion. “Who talks like that?” she said. “That’s so low! She’s a mother and a wife. That’s not funny. It’s a little too much for me. It’s one thing to make fun of somebody and make it cut but to really insult them…”
Her song “Tardy for the Party” is No. 3 on the iTunes dance charts. That’s a sub-genre so it’s unclear what that translates to when it comes to sales.
