Kim Zolciak looks much different now than she did 11 years ago when she began starring on the debut season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta but according to the mother of six, her new look isn’t the result of photoshop or plastic surgery. Also, Kim is firing back at photoshopping claims and revealing why she looks thinner on her Instagram page than in real life.
After being confronted by a fan who pointed out that she looks “so different,” Kim offered up the real reason behind her dramatic new look.
“Just watched the first season of Housewives, you look so different,” the fan wrote.
“Yup that’s what happens when you don’t have a glam squad sweetie, 11 years ago we started that show!!” Kim replied.
Below is a before and after photo of Kim. The before photo is from her second season on the Real Housewives of Atlanta back in 2008.
“It’s crazy how on the TV show they all look heavier and nothing like their great pictures they post on insta,” the fan wrote.
“Well sweetie you might want to look at our videos on our IG!!” Kim replied. “Television adds 10 lbs!”
At the end of last year, Kim shared a photo of herself on Instagram and insisted her body, which she’s often accused of photoshopping, is in tip-top shape due to diet and exercise.
“Fun Facts: I run 3-4 miles 5x a week,” she wrote. “I don’t eat red meat or pork NEVER have. I’m 5’8! From the time I get up to the time I go to bed .. I rarely sit down. I hate breakfast but drink shakes in place of it.”
