Tonight is the night you have all been waiting for! Especially you, Not a Kim Z Fan! It’s the premier of Don’t Be Tardy! My screener only has the first episode so I will be tuned in tonight to see the second one and probably write another post with a recap. I promise not to spoil you too much so you can enjoy the show tonight!
Here we go with episode one of Don’t Be Tardy! This is a very rough cut so I imagine there will be some changes in what you guys see tonight. I am assuming this will be the opening with Kim in the “Falcon’s Jersey” that is nothing more than some red body paint. The theme of the opening seems to be, to borrow a phrase from Phaedra’s show, “Rich People Problems.” The intro begins with, “My mother ruined my wedding, my friends have turned on me and me dream house turned out to be a nightmare…” The wedding eviction, her walkout from RHOA and the rental house move are shown in the opening during the voiceover. Poor Kimberleigh. Poor, poor Kimberleigh. Bless her heart.
The theme song is Don’t Be Tardy with Kim singing. It is just those three words over and over. I wonder if that is for copyright purposes? I don’t know how that works but you know on Big Brother if they sing more than a couple words they have to pay for it supposedly. And the houseguests can’t play music. Right now it sounds kind of rough (the editing not the singing). I am not sure that part is entirely finished. I’ll be tuning in to see what happens with the song since this press cut was made before the lawsuit, I think. I’ve had it a while.
After the intro, the first scene is Kash being born. The birth was quick and easy and so was the scene. The best part is that Kim’s cussing is not edited in the screener. I don’t know why that makes me happy but it does. Speaking of babies, the kids are front and center as plot points for this season. You will be seeing a lot of them, doing homework with Kroy, getting grounded, learning to drive, justifying bad report cards, having bullying issues at school, and of course the grandparent visitation drama. It’s a family show about her family. There are times when we will see Kim and Kroy butt heads over parenting (Kroy has rules and discipline and Kim tends to overindulge them at times). There will be an adorable KJ scene every week, I expect, just like on the last show. That is one cute kid. Say what you want about Kim, she makes beautiful kids.
Another major plot lie for the season is the building of her house. As she finally admitted on the reunion, she bought a foreclosed property. We get to see the house right away (and a talking head of Kim reminding us she does not do used housed) and it is almost as unfinished as Chateau Sheree. Allegedly. They have hired the builder that built the rental house that Kendra threw her out of to finish this one out. Here are some posts on that to catch you up. I wonder if Kim knows that Sheree is testifying in court that she is a builder ? She could have called her! I wonder what Sheree’s job will be in court this week. I can’t wait! Anyway the builder’s contract says he has a year to complete the house but he may be able to do it in nine months. Kim doesn’t like blue bottomed pools…you’ll just have to watch what happens there and the home inspector doesn’t like black mold, which he finds and that’s a problem. You see when homes sit unfinished for years….like oh I dunno….Chateau Sheree then mold becomes a huge issue. We won’t see Kim moving into the new dream house because she is just now moving in. I think the move started last weekend.
The final plot point is the discord between Kim and Kroy and Kim’s parents. Kim’s mother is supposedly writing a tell all book in addition to giving information to the tabloids. I reported here about Kim asking for a gag order for her parents. We will see how all the drama unfolds and how that all ends. There are phone calls on speaker phone and Kroy becomes VERY involved in the interactions (or lack thereof) between Kim and her parents. I think we will see a new, very protective side of Kroy this season. Some of you may see it as controlling.
But Kim is still the same old Kim. Despite all the luxury she tries to surround herself with, she still appears to be drinking wine out of a red solo cup on the first episode. You can take the girl out of the trailer park but…
Now admit it. You are going to watch with me!
