Last year, Kim Zolciak got a nice raise and Don’t Be Tardy was renewed.
On this week’s episode, Kim got on her husband’s case about how they have no sex life these days.
Disaster struck on Don’t Be Tardy this week.
And by “disaster,” we of course mean a moderate inconvenience that happened to a family of attractive millionaires.
Their massive RV or bus or whatever that behemoth of a portable dwelling is called broke down … in a parking lot. At 4AM.
It wasn’t just any parking lot, either.
Honestly, for a couple of years I’ve wanted to see a horror film where the main characters are all either producing or starring on a reality show before they end up in a scary small town.
While the Zolciak-Biermann scenario from this week fit that premise to a T, there were (sadly?) no knife-wielding cultists. Just an empty, spooky parking lot.
Small towns can be genuinely threatening for many people, from sundown towns to remote areas where there’s just no one around to help.
But homogenous communities are dangerous for marginalized people traveling alone.
A rich white family traveling with a production crew is not realistically in any danger.
During the shenanigans of trying to will the bus into working, Kroy was trying to start the engine.
“Please,” Kroy begged, perhaps trying to coax some sympathy out of the engine.
He begged: “Just give it to me, please.”
Like so many of us, Kim took the opportunity to make a sex joke.
Unlike most of us, the joke that she made was kind of sad.
“You give it to me,” Kim jabbed. “We have no love life.”
This might seem like an unkind thing to expose on television … or in front of anyone, really.
But given that they both shared a laugh, it appears to have all been in good fun.
In on the joke, Kroy fired back: “That’s not what you said this morning.”
Kim kept the ball rolling, replying: “I wish.”
In light of their current situation, Kroy joked: “At 4AM, in this parking lot.”
Kim let out a delighted laugh, at which point Kroy returned to the task of fixing their massive vehicle … well, or trying.
Now, I’m no car expert — I identify them by color, not make or model (and I’m not clear on the difference between “make” and “model”) — but the show explained the problem.
They went on to discover that the culprit was a loose wire.
Soon, they were back on teh road and heading to a dude ranch, which may sound like a male strip club but is a cattle ranch that has been converted into a vacation spot.
It’s unclear if there was any seriousness in Kim’s jab. Sometimes jokes are about real concerns; other times, they’re just jokes.
But it’s perfectly normal for busy parents to find that they don’t have as much time to bone each other as they would like.
Of course, we imagine that this is especially the case when a large family is packed onto a single bus. There’s not a ton of privacy on an RV.
