UPDATE April 27, 2012
During the premiere episode of Don’t Be Tardy to the Wedding, we could see the building conflict between Kim and her mother, Karen. We can view this as the “drama an tension” part of the story. A bit fake, since Karen has appeared with Kim Zolciak on every season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and there was never a hint of a rift between them.
When I first wrote this article, I treated it as rumor, but several of Karen’s friends have commented (see comments below) and it appears to be true.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE 11/15/11
I am treating this as rumor, simply because of the relationships involved.
What do I mean? The author of this article is the girlfriend of a certain ex-husband of one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kim is friendly with the ex-wife, who was in the wedding party. There may be a built-in bias.
While there was plenty of security on the grounds, there’s no word yet on why Kim felt the need to call the cops on her own mother!
Guests of the newlywed were in shock & awe as Kim’s Mom, Karen, was escorted out of her own daughter’s reception!
The event went on as planned, and you’ll get to see all the drama-free wedding procedures when it airs, but guests are still whispering about the disrespectful nature of Kim’s actions.
Kim’s wedding was filmed by Bravo for her upcoming spin-off show.
