Kim Zolciak is clearly the breadwinner in her family. The Don’t Be Tardy star signed a new contract with Bravo that has her bringing home six figures per episode. That brings Zolciak’s total to around $1.5 million for every season of Don’t Be Tardy, and her daughter, Brielle Biermann’s, paycheck isn’t bad either.
Zolciak just finished filming the seventh season of her hit reality show, but it wasn’t without a few challenges. Zolciak threatened to leave the network after a disastrous season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which ended with her being called racist.
In order to get Zolciak back, sources claim that Bravo gave her and Biermann a raise. While her mom is benefiting the most from the deal, Biermann now makes about $16,000 per episode, which brings her yearly earnings to almost $200,000.
“Kim and Brielle negotiated more money and they got a raise,” a source explained.
Zolciak and her daughter were not the only ones who negotiated a better payday. According to Radar Online, Zolciak’s husband, Kroy Biermann, also got a piece of the pie. The former NFL player signed a contract to help produce Don’t Be Tardy and received a similar deal as his wife.
Although Zolciak had to deal with a lot of drama when she returned to RHOA, it sounds like everything worked out in the end.
That said, Kim Zolciak still has her share of detractors. This past week, fans criticized the reality star for photoshopping a pic of her four-year-old daughter on social media.
The Don’t Be Tardy star has not commented about the post, but we are pretty sure she will find a way to rebound.
Bravo has not announced when Season 7 of Don’t Be Tardy will start, but the series is expected to return in the next few months.
