The Kim Zolciak we know and love is always decked out in designer duds, has a fierce wig collection, a huge house, and the most amazing husband ever. But just a few short years ago, Kim was a single mother with two little girls, making a living as a nurse. It’s hard to remember a time when Kim wasn’t a famous reality star, but her eldest daughter Brielle, 16, posted a pretty amazing throwback photo of Kim and her girls back in the day that shows us Kimmie was strutting her stuff long before Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The photo features what looks like a pre-wig Kim sporting that big smile of hers. On one side of Kim, Brielle and Ariana ham it up from the camera, while another relative — possibly Kim’s brother — stands on her other side. Brielle Instagrammed this flashback photo on January 2 and wrote, “throwback with my fam and the best uncle ever.”

Kim has mentioned her brother a few times in the past, but her relationships with her family members have never been easy. Kim had a falling out with her parents shortly after she married Kroy in 2011, and as far as we know, they have never met Kash or the twins. They did, however, sue Kim for visitation rights to their grandchildren, but their request was denied.

Do you think Kim looks different now than she does in this picture? Tell us your thoughts below!
