Kim Zolciak takes a lot of heat over the image she portrays on social media; in fact, her photos are often blasted for being fake as critics accuse her of having had plastic surgery and for Photoshopping images. But now, Zolciak is getting real about what work she has, and has not, done.
Speaking during an interview with E! News, Zolciak came clean about the work that she’s had done in the past.
“I had a boob job and I’ve had a hernia fixed,” she confessed, adding, “I had a pretty big hernia from the twins, so I said just do a tummy tuck, which is kinda the same thing, just makes 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.”
This doesn’t change the fact that Zolciak is naturally a beautiful woman, and according to her, that has a lot to do with good genes — the saying “I got it from my mama” really applies here.
“My mom’s very small. I’m tall, I’m 5-8, I do have height on me. My mom is 5-4. But my mom’s been a size 2 her whole life,” Zolciak explained. “I’ve been a size 27 jean my whole life. I definitely think genetics play a role, and I don’t eat tons at a meal. 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.”
Zolciak will probably receive harsh criticism for admitting to having plastic surgery (at least from some critics), but the best thing about it — and one of the reasons we have so much respect for Zolciak — is that she doesn’t really care about the haters. She doesn’t need their approval, and she’s going to do what she wants, when she wants and live her life the way she wants.
“I will always nip and tuck if I feel the need to do so, but I’m open about it. 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,” Zolciak revealed, alluding to the rumors that she has had a nose job and a face lift.
And yes, many will argue that because she chooses to live her life in the public eye, she opens herself up to the criticism that she receives. While that may be true, what’s great to know is that Zolciak isn’t fazed by the backlash, and she has “no secrets.”
