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.
