Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding features Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kim Zolciak planning a lavish wedding and exhibiting major materialism. It contains lots of strong language ("bitch," "piss," "hell"; "s--t" and "f--k" are bleeped), sexual discussions, and semi-nude pics of Kim (the sides of her breasts are sometimes visible). Arguments break out between family members. Drinking (wine, champagne) is visible during social functions, and cigarette smoking is discussed.
What's the story?
DON'T BE TARDY FOR THE WEDDING features reality personality Kim Zolciak as she prepares to marry Atlanta Falcons football player Kroy Biermann. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member has eight weeks to plan her over-the-top dream wedding. Viewers get to watch as she hires celebrity event planner Colin Cowie to handle the details of the million dollar event, and choose designer dresses with the help of Shun, her stylist, and Jen, her matron of honor. In between all the lavish spending she spends time with her children, 15-year-old Brielle, 9-year-old Ariana, and infant son A.K.. She even finds time to get a few cosmetic enhancements. Planning for the big day is exciting, but disagreements between extended family members threaten to create lots of drama.
Is it any good?
The reality series spinoff offers the similar style of voyeuristic drama that you can expect from the Real Housewives franchise, including lots of conversations about money (both having it and spending it), and not-so-subtle references to other real housewives. Meanwhile, family disputes offer enough drama to make it interesting.
Ultimately, the series is a showcase for Zolciak to highlight her looks and her lavish lifestyle. RHOA fans will probably enjoy the guilty pleasure that goes into watching her make the day a major reality event. But if you're looking for romance, there is very little of it here.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about reality show spin offs. What is it about some reality show cast members that make them candidates for their own show? Is it a unique personality? The drama they stir up?
How do Kim and the rest of the characters talk about money? What is their relationship with money? Can you imagine spending the kind of money Kim spends on the wedding? What are some other things that money could buy?
