Fans of Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) are well familiar with Kim Zolciak.
She started off on RHOA dating a married man who is rumored to be one of the thousands of Atlanta's big tycoons.
We all know that the whole "dating a married man" thing is not cool at all, but she eventually closed that chapter and she moved on with her life.
Certainly, we have all done some things in our past that we are not too proud of, and hopefully Zolciak will look back on this act and realize her mistake.
Finally, she ended up marrying an NFL star... but not before getting knocked up by the young star athlete.
The make-up caked, wig wearing, buxom blonde is one of the central characters of the popular reality TV show.
However, many people dislike her because they see her as a gold-digger.
To all the haters out there who despise Kim Zolciak because they think she is a gold-digger, I say . . .
Call her whatever you want, but you can't call her dumb, because choosing not to date a BAM (Broke A _ _ Man) is a wise decision for any woman to make.
Big Poppa Set the Standard
When the show first premiered in 2008, she was the mistress of an extremely wealthy married man, known only to viewers as “Big Poppa.”
Zolciak took plenty of jabs from audiences and even other cast members (especially NeNe Leakes), because she did not seem to care that she might have been breaking up another woman's household.
She was a very well kept woman, and Big Poppa was known to buy her big-ticket items like luxury SUVs, expensive jewelry, and you know that he paid her rent.
There was even the exchange of a gigantic engagement ring, but in the end,she stepped off and he stayed with his wife (I suppose).
Kroy Biermann: A Big Butt and a Big Salary
With the scent of Big Poppa barely worn off of her hide, she spotted an NFL player with a butt proper morals you could bounce a quarter off of . . . and Big Poppa was promptly made a thing of the past.
Kroy Biermann is a football defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons, and he had the good fortune (or bad fortune according to some) to meet Zolciak at a charity function, and less than a year later the couple is married with a six-month old son.
Why All the Hate?
Kim Zolciak makes no bones about the fact that she likes money and all the things that money can buy.
People seem to dislike Zolciak because of her love of money and her history of dating men with money. But, the RHOA series, and the entire BravoTV "Housewives" franchise is all about women who love money.
Plus, what is wrong with appreciating the finer things in life and having the gall to go out and get it by any means necessary?
True enough, dating a married man is probably not the most moralistic thing to do, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with targeting a man with money.
All of those people who do not like Zociak because they feel that she is a gold-digger should ask themselves whether it is proper morals or money that makes the world go around.
The answer to that question is neither, because LOVE truly does make the world go around. . . but money can make love and life a heck of a lot easier.
There is a lot of buzz over whether Zociak actually loves Kroy Biermann, or if she is only after his NFL salary.
Only Kim knows the answer to this question for sure, but either answer makes Kim a smart girl because her bills are paid, she has a beautiful home, a sexy younger husband, two happy young girls, and she can probably afford to buy whatever her heart desires - how many of us have made such wise financial decisions?

I like her, but you're probably right. What we put out into the universe always comes back to us somehow...
