Kim Zolciak Brings Reality Star Curse to Kroy Biermann and Atlanta Falcons
Reality Star Kim Zolciak and Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann are engaged and expecting.
Look out Atlanta. That dark cloud you see approaching the Georgia Dome is another reality show girl descending down on an NFL player in hopes of scooping him up for a fairy tale life only to leave the team in shambles. This time it is Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak heading directly towards third year defensive end Kroy Biermann (Atlanta Falcons). Biermann is having a pretty good season with 28 tackles, a sack and an interception, but that can drastically change.
Today it was made public that Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann are now engaged. She is pregnant and is reportedly in her second trimester.
Now I don’t want to sound like a jackass here, but this smells a little like trouble. Let’s start off with some history. A little while back I wrote a piece that pointed out that just about every NFL player who dates a girl who is in a reality show ends up having bad things happen. From broken legs (Reggie Bush) to teams falling apart (Miles Austin) to broken wrists (Brian Urlacher) there is no end to the trail of devastation left by the reality star girls and the havoc they have brought to the NFL. Now Kim Zolciak is pregnant by and engaged to an NFL player. What is more telling to me is that she said they wanted to announce their marriage and pregnancy to a major magazine and that they are hoping to get a spinoff reality show of their own. Yeah, that should work out just fine. Ask Kendra and Hank Baskett how that is going. Hank, by the way, is another prime example of a guy involved with a reality star girl whose career disappeared.
I don’t hate Kim Zolciak. I don’t even know her. I have never seen the show which leads me to wonder how she is on it. If the show is about housewives, but she is not one, how is she there? I read that she is divorced, but does that make her a housewife? I’m confused. What is more interesting to me is that she is clearly starving for fame. She has a twitter account and has tweeted more than 9,100 times. She clearly is busy telling everyone what she is doing. She is also aspiring to be a singer and has released a few songs on iTunes and seems to plan most of her public announcements round whether or not she can get in a magazine with them.
Maybe this one will work out. Maybe Kroy Biermann likes all this attention and maybe they will live happily ever after. But the Falcons better pick up their game because we all know how reality star girls can crush the playoffs. Just ask Tony Romo who bobbled the snap on the short field goal that would have sent the Cowboys to the NFC championship and probably Super Bowl while Jessica Simpson watched it all go down.
