Maintaining a gravity-defying bod is part of the job when you're a Real Housewife. But the stars of the show routinely deny going under the knife to keep themselves looking their best. Now, however, one cast member who frequently shows off her thigh gap and rock-hard abs is finally admitting to having a little help keeping it right and tight.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak, who has previously denied all allegations of getting work done, either surgically or digitally, is coming clean about plastic surgery. “I had a boob job and I’ve had a hernia fixed,” the mother of six revealed to E! News Monday. “I had a pretty big hernia from the twins, so I said just do a tummy tuck, which is kinda the same thing, just make the skin really tight. But that doesn’t change my size. I’m the same size I was the day I walked into surgery, I’m just a little bit tighter-looking.”
Still, though, Zolciak continues to insist that her unbelievable body has more to do with genes than doctors. “I definitely think genetics play a role, and I don’t eat tons at a meal,” she said. “I love dessert, not gonna lie, definitely have dessert every night. Just a little brownie, not a big sundae. I think eating in moderation is key for people. I think the portion sizes that are out there today are just insane.”
The bikini selfie addict does, however, keep her options open for having more surgery in the future. “I will always nip and tuck if I feel the need to do so, but I’m open about it,” she said. “I don’t care. You only go around one time, and I especially understand that. And life is very short, so there’s no reason for me to lie.”
Must not be easy living in the fish bowl of the Real Housewives world and have every move or photo scrutinized. Watch Wendy Williams put Zolciak's co-star Kandi Burruss on blast for her parenting skills in the clip above.
