It’s no secret that Kim Zolciak loves to spend money, and on last week’s episode of her Real Housewives of Atlanta spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy, Kimmie’s questionable spending habits were front and center. Not only did the mother of six stock up on pricey Louis Vuitton luggage (for her newborn twins, no less) after Kroy expressly told her not to, but she also dropped a cool $1,200 on scratch-off lottery tickets like it was just a drop in the bucket. To add insult to injury, Kim’s daughters, Brielle and Ariana, told the Bravo cameras that their mom also loves to gamble online.

Understandably, Kim was called out on Twitter for the way she spends money, but the reality star was well equipped to deal with her haters, tweeting at a couple of particularly mean naysayers, “hey dumbasses I have been on tv for 7 yrs I HAVE my own income so worry abt ur funds not mine #blocked.” The haters incorrectly assumed that Kroy is making all of the money Kim is spending, but as she stated, that is most certainly not the case.


Truth be told, we think some of the stuff Kim spends money on is pretty absurd (who drops $1,200 on gas station scratch-offs?!) but she is completely correct in saying that she works hard for her money, and as long as her bills are paid she is free to spend it however she pleases.

Still, there are always going to be people trying to take you down. When several more followers bashed Kim for spending Kroy’s money, she broke out the sarcasm, tweeting, “yup he sure is cause I don’t work or anything, its not MY show or anything.” As for the gambling, Kim says she doesn’t play for real money. You tell ‘em Kimmie!
