Kim Zolciak Of Real Housewives Gets Engaged

10/14/2011 08:49 AM ET

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is now engaged. The reality star made the announcement on Twitter that she and boyfriend Kroy Biermann plan to marry.

Kim meet the Atlanta Falcons defensive end while filming for RHOA at a charity event in the summer of 2010. They started dating soon after and had a baby boy, Kroy Jr., back in May. This is Biermann's first child and Kim's first son. She has two daughters from a previous marriage.

Zolciak shared the news on Twitter Tuesday afternoon. "I am happy announce that YES @biermann71 and I are engaged! I'm on a cloud and so blessed!!"

For the first two seasons of the reality show, Kim carried on a relationship with a married man named "Big Poppa." "Poppa" lavished Kim with expensive gifts, including a ring, but refused to divorce his wife. The couple split, prompting her song "The Ring Didn't Mean a Thing" (clearly, her tune has changed with Kroy).

She's definitely my favorite cast-member of any season because she's a confusing mix of self-awareness and shamelessness. I feel like she knows what she's doing, even when what she's doing is totally absurd.

So the fact that she announced her engagement three weeks before season four of RHOA hits the air is no surprise. Kim's got a brain under that wig.

Not only will the engagement bring her publicity, it will also draw attention to her show. Rumors are beginning to surface that she and Kroy are getting their own RHOA spin-off.
