Kim Zolciak said divorcing Kroy Biermann was ‘not an option’ 5 years before split

Kim Zolciak once said divorce would never be on the table for her and soon-to-be ex-husband Kroy Biermann. 

“That’s not an option in my house,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum, 44, confidently stated during an October 2017 interview with Fox News. 

The “Don’t Be Tardy” alum — whose family-focused reality show ended in 2020 — told the outlet back then that the primary reason why so many other “Housewives” have faced divorce is because of the “hype of TV and the publicity.” 

However, the Bravolebrity notably said, “I would never allow a show to impact my marriage in any way. My marriage is definitely first.” 

Per legal documents obtained by TMZ, Zolciak filed for divorce and listed April 30 as the date of separation between her and the former NFL star after 11 years of marriage. 

Reps for Zolciak — who filed because the marriage was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation” — did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment. 

The Bravo star doubled down on her approach to marriage as recently as November 2022. 

In an interview with E! News, she detailed the importance of married couples staying “true” to wedding vows and to their partner when “things get tough.” 

After the couple defaulted on a $1.65 million loan they took out for their home in 2016, the multi-million dollar house — that they allegedly put millions and millions into — was put up for auction in February.
