AceShowbiz - This is surely amazing news for Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her family. Bravo has reportedly decided to pick up her reality show "Don't Be Tardy..." for another season as a source reveals that the honchos at the network think the spin-off of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is doing good.
"Kim's numbers on 'Don't Be Tardy' are doing really well once the DVR numbers are accounted for," the insider claims to Radar Online. "Bravo wants her back for another season, but she needs a stronger lead-in show."
The show initially had low ratings after getting switched from Sunday nights to a less desirable Friday night slot on the network. However, the show, which is currently airing its season 7, managed to bounce back which made the executive producers happy.
Season 7 offers a slew drama that fans seemingly like, including Kim having a health scare as she turned 40 and her eldest daughter Brielle Biermann leaving the family house. The good ratings are also said to be positively affecting Kim's paycheck.
"Kim is getting another season of the show and she will also get a raise," explains the source. It was previously reported that the blonde star made $1.5 million per season while Brielle was getting a hefty $192,000 for the reality show.
While the raise is exciting enough, that's apparently not the only good thing happening for Kim and her family. The source goes on saying that "she's getting her family vacation paid for again."
It arrives after Kim was hit with a lawsuit from American Express National Bank for outstanding credit card bill. In the November 2018 suit, it was said that she failed to pay over $215,000 credit card bill. "Defendant [Zolciak] agreed to pay and was obligated to pay the Plaintiff for all extended credit on Defendant's account," the complaint read.
"Pursuant to the parties' agreement, Plaintiff transmitted to Defendants a monthly billing statement for the account, and Defendant was obligated to pay the minimum payment due as set forth on that statement on a monthly basis," the lawsuit continued. "The Defendant has failed and continues to fail to pay the amounts due and owing on the account."
Radar Online reported that the Bravo star's husband Kroy Biermann accepted the summons when the Sheriff served it on February 9, 2019.
