Kim Zolciak gets her own spin-off, and yes, it has “tardy” in the title

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is getting her own spin-off series on Bravo called Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, which will follow the lead-up to her marriage to Kroy Biermann.

Unlike Bethenny Frankel’s Bethenny Ever After, Kim’s series will only be a half-hour show, and it will “follow the adventures of Kim preparing for her wedding on the lucky date of 11/11/11,” Bravo said in a press release. As you can imagine, this will be heavily set-up and full of things to create drama, such as Kim hiring “celebrity event planner Colin Cowie to help design a dream wedding in her brand new multi-million dollar home.”

The title of the spin-off, which doesn’t yet have a debut date, is a reference, of course, to Kim’s “Tardy for the Party” single that convinced other stars of the franchise to release their own awful singles, for which she should be punished, not rewarded.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
