If you had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that both Kim Zolciak’s middle daughter, Ariana, and Kandi Burruss little girl Riley started seventh grade this week, then you better sit down, because we’ve got some additional school-related news that might just knock you over. While the youngins are enjoying middle school, Kim’s eldest child, Brielle Biermann, started her senior year yesterday, August 11.  

Kim commemorated the occasion with, what else, an Instagram post! “My sweet @briellebiermann first day of her senior year! With @coreymassey1 and @aribents I just can't believe it!! Where did the time go?! I'm so proud of you Elle but my goodness I wish I could stop the clock! #loveyou #imgoingtoneedashrink,” Kim captioned a shot of Brielle and her pals. Sure, Brielle has grown up a bunch over the past couple of years, but it’s still a bit scary to see that young girl we met all those years ago on the Real Housewives of Atlanta as a high school senior. Think of it this way: in less than a year Elle will be leaving Atlanta behind and heading off to college.



Speaking of college, Kim has already mentioned that she’s going to have a very tough time when her firstborn leaves the house, noting on a recent episode of Don’t Be Tardy (and even in that Instagram caption!) that she’ll likely need a therapist to help her through the major life change. Aww Kimmie, look on the bright side: When Brielle leaves you’ll still have five kids at home to shower with love.

We don’t yet know what schools Brielle is looking at for her higher education, but in the past she has showed interest in attending a school in New York or Florida. Seeing as how Florida and Georgia are neighbors we think Kim would be fine with Brielle studying in the Sunshine State, but the Big Apple is a different story. But hey, if Brielle does decide to give New York a shot then we can expect to see much more of Kim on Watch What Happens Live!

Are you surprised that Brielle is already a high school senior? Weigh in below!
