Kim Zolciak on bikini pics: ‘f–k you’ if you think they’re photoshopped

Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, wig aficionado and “singer” Kim Zolciak is on the defensive after some bikini pics surfaced that might have been altered in Photoshop. Might have? I know, who are we kidding, right?

On Friday, the 37-year-old mother of 6 and former Dancing with the Stars contestant posted a bikini selfie from her vacation in Cancun, Mexico. She and her hubby, 30-year-old Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, were in Cancun celebrating their 4th wedding anniversary. The photo, which has since been deleted from her Instagram account, credited her slim and trim physique to sports nutrition shakes and water. Kim also shared (and later deleted) a photo – “borrowed” from Arielle’s Snapchat – of she and daughters Brielle, 18 and Ariana, 14 all posing in skimpy swimwear. As for a caption, Kim boasted that “it’s all in the genes.” Well…paparazzi shots taken the same weekend tell a slightly different story, with Kim not looking quite as slim and trim – a little piña colada bloat perhaps?

Kim’s Instagram followers let her have it, with comments calling her an “attention whore” and the fact that she’s posing sexually with her daughters “disturbing on a whole new level.” It’s probably not gong to earn her any “Parent of the Year” awards, that’s for sure.

This is not the first time Kim’s been accused of Photoshop abuse. Photos of her with an impossible to achieve in real life thigh gap showed up on her Instagram and drew the ire of fans and professional graphic designers alike.

As a result of this most recent attack, Kim once again returned to Instagram to give her haters a piece of her mind, as well as a slightly blurry look at her (supposedly not Photoshopped and certainly not sucked in) tummy. In the brief video – which also features her daughters again mugging and attempting to look cloying and seductive – Kim lashes out at her critics with an obscenity-laced rant. Here’s what the queen of eloquence had to say:

I just have to comment again how The Daily Mail and TMZ are full of s**t and show you what I really look like. I’m not a bulls**ter. I don’t have to f**king bulls**t. So f**k you!

Great example to set for the kids there, Kim. But really, she’s an attention-seeking reality personality. Much like many other attention seekers in tinsel town we know (cough…cough…Lindsay Lohan…), Photoshop can pretend to be your best friend, but can turn out to be your worst enemy. We thought she’d know this by now. What disturbs me the most is that she’s a role model to anyone. Watching her young daughter posing and trying to look well beyond her years as her mother goes on a public, foul-mouthed rant makes me sad that there’s even one other young girl aspiring to be more like this woman. She’s had 6 kids and in the pap shots she looks fine. She should own it.

Here’s the video where Kim calls out The Daily Mali and TMZ. She swears a lot so it’s NSFW:

    I mean, she also lied about a cancer scare and continues to lie about the surgery she had on her nose so….

    (When did CB-HQ expand? Hi Corey!)

    • Amelia says:

      Welcome to CB Corey!

    • Alexandra says:

      I guess they needed a new writer, since it looks like Bedhead isn’t here anymore. Welcome, Corey :D !

      • pinetree13 says:

        I was wondering too because I saw Corey’s name appear a few days ago (I forget on which post). Ha ha I’m such a nerd I always have to see who wrote which article but I don’t know why..I can never keep many of the facts straight about each of their lives but I try.

    • Wentworth Miller says:

      You really think that Kim got her nose done? I would think that she would have actually fixed it if she had gotten it done. It looks…., mmm, weird like its always looked. I forgot about that lie about the wearing wigs because she thought that she had cancer. I saw her on Watch What Happens Live and she lied to Andy when he asked if she had recently had work done on her face and she lied and said something about it being the glasses making her look differently.

      • Abbott says:

        Oh for sure she got it done. It’s just a bad job; too narrow, upturned, and fake looking. I saw that WWHL episode where Andy kept pressing her. She kept trying to say it was the glasses she was wearing and he’s all ‘No girl. You’re trying to distract from your new nose with the glasses.’

    • nikko says:

      I think Corey’s family doesn’t like her very much. I remember watching an episode when his family was visiting and his mother and sister kept looking at each other like who in the heck is this woman.

  2. Lindy79 says:

    She actually looks ok in the pap shots, especially for someone who has had a few children in quick succession. Its the ‘shopping and lying that annoys me, as for some unknown reason she’s a public figure so some women look up to her, admire her and she’s adding to this “you can look like this with zero effort” narrative that has women pulling their hair out and doubting themselves.

    • Josephine says:

      I agree – she looks fine, but maybe she’s getting paid to shill that waist-trainer? Sorry, but anyone who is buying crap like that really needs to reassess. There is no magic pill, and everyone one of those chicks who are pushing that thing are famous for photo-shopping, not having a good body. But this woman and the others who use that thing all seem like sad sacks with insecurity issues, hence her vulgar and immature reply.

  3. Tate says:

    I saw the DM pics the other day and it is so glaringly obvious that she photoshopped the hell out of that bikini picture. It’s like the Kardashians and their plastic surgery. Stop lying.

    • Esteph says:

      mm hmm. I know I’m not naturally slim, but I would not photoshop just for the fact that I would have to keep up the facade, which is too much maintenance

  4. Elisabeth says:

    where is her belly button?

    • Abbott says:

      I guess Mattel overlooked it when they reconstructed her protein casing*.

      (Credit to mimif for that poetic phrasing)

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      My bellybutton is little like that. I had two laparoscopic procedures on my uterus while trying to get pregnant, and they go through your bellybutton. It gets smaller for some reason when they repair it.

      • pinetree13 says:

        Interesting GNAT!

        Although in Kim’s case I’m POSITIVE it’s from a tummy tuck…she did have 6 kids afterall and that is exactly how most belly buttons look after a tummy tuck.

  5. LadyJane says:

    What a great message she is giving her daughters, who are posing and preening for the camera in the background, sticking their butts out and pouting while their dear mother goes on a vile tirade about how she isn’t photoshopped. The girls even appear to cup their mother’s butt at the end, in order to better show it off for the camera, and the world. I despair, truly.

    • MG says:

      She’s a horrible role model. She posted a picture of her two eldest girls on Instagram, Brielle posted the same picture on her Instagram account. The picture on Kim’s account had airbrushed her daughter’s skin, made their eye color more vivid. She altered her own daughters! On Brielle’s Instagram the picture was just normal. What the hell kind of message is that?!? And we can see your real body on TV Kim (which happens to be very good) These photoshopped to oblivion biniki pics are sooooo ridiculous.

      • Lara says:

        Ugh, I totally agree.

        What a sad, horrible video. Kim cursing and raging about her body and the tabloids and photoshop and her daughters pouting and poking their butts out and showing off. Just a horrible image of 21st century tabloid narcissism.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Sickening. We really have reached a place where the lowest scum is celebrated.

  6. cleveland girl says:

    Don’t hate me, but that shot from the front view may not be photoshopped. From the front she looks great…it is profile that we see a slightly protruding belly…and she still looks pretty good. It is her attitude that sucks.

  7. Word says:

    I’m gonna need to see a birth certificate.

    • Tate says:

      Her body if fine without the photoshop but that selfie at the top is over the top photoshopped. Her silly “thigh gap” does not exist in pics that have not been messed with.

      Like I said, she looks good without the photoshop but the beach pap pics that are out there show a completely different body than what we see here.

      Edit: oops! Responded to the wrong comment. :-) meant to respond to Clevelandgirl

    • FingerBinger says:

      @Word If people believe she’s really 37 I have a bridge to sell.

  8. Elle says:

    I gotta admit that for a woman who had six kids her body looks pretty great, candid shots included! I do think as well she has a pretty good natural shape and is clearly just one of those women who bounce back quickly.

    • pinetree13 says:

      I think she looks good but I also am convinced she had a tummy tuck (she has the classic tummy tuck belly button) as well as sculpting lipo to rear-end fat transfer (literally every celebrity is doing that these days.

  9. Nancy says:

    She is so crass and uncouth. Poster child of reality television.

  10. NewWester says:

    I honestly thought that photo of Kim Z with the sunglasses was Kylie Jenner with a blond wig. Pretty sad when a eighteen year old could pass for a thirty something ( at least that what Kim Z says) woman

  11. Katie says:

    You don’t really get to say f you to criticism when you put it out there, especially when there are paparazzi photos for comparison.

  12. lucy2 says:

    Well f–k me then, because those are clearly photoshopped.
    I will say whoever is doing that for her is better at it than whoever does the Kim Kardashian’s and Beyonce’s.

  13. Talie says:

    She won’t even admit to her nose job, so what can you expect?

  14. Nicolette says:

    For all the progress women have made over time, it’s stunning how many steps back have been taken. All that seems to matter is how someone looks. There isn’t a day anymore where media isn’t bombarded with photos of reality stars, singers, models, actresses and wannabe’s sticking their chests and derriere’s out for everyone to see. Or worse going completely naked and in very suggestive poses. Is this really what they think women have to do? Even those that truly have talent feel the need to do this? It’s not empowering, it’s degrading. And sadly the young girls/women of today see this and replicate it on their own social media accounts. There’s so much more we have to offer than T&A, but clearly this knucklehead isn’t interested in teaching her daughters that.

  15. saywhatwhen says:

    I saw this on the DM and I have to say, I got the major envies. Because nothing I do makes my belly shrink. Boycott of bread, rice, meat and dairy helps to bring me down to the 3.5 months pregnant look …so if that is all her she needs to publish a cookbook for keeping a flat belly year round. Watch come Christmas after the puddings and pies I will be sporting twins.

    • Kitten says:

      Stop doing that to yourself.
      You don’t have access to the money and resources that she does so of course it will be harder and it’s f*cking unrealistic of her to present this false idea of how simple it is to lose baby weight. FWIW, I doubt she lost all that weight from working out and diet. Judging by her penchant for plastic surgery, she probably just got lipo.

      Oh, and I’m sure you look a million times better than she does.

    • snowflake says:

      Can you give me the link? I’ve been looking and I cant find it. :-)

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I would bet you anything she’s had a tummy tuck and liposuction on her belly. I think she’s hideous looking, but yes, her stomach is flat for the circumstances. Id be very surprised if it was natural.

      • saywhatwhen says:

        Don’t follow this reality star but was hoping for hope’s sake that her belly was the real deal. Gah, us ordinaries and mortals could use some direction on getting the tummy flat after baby. I look best naked. Truly, when I put on clothes it accentuates my little kangaroo pouch…me no likey…and I am hardcore at the gym but I cannot and will not give up bread. And when I was growing up I was lead to believe rice was a vegetable that one must, simply must, consumer everyday—now it is hard to break the habit.

    • Tifygodess says:

      She had a tummy tuck and a breast job , it was part of her story line last season. She has also gotten other work done but denies it. Apparently reality stars believe that everyone is blind and stup*d. I’m pretty sure She believes that admitting to some means she doesn’t have to admit to the rest- “oh see I’ve been honest about my tummy tuck and breast job why would I lie?” Hahaha ok Kim. Pictures don’t lie.
      It’s also clear that her 18 year old daughter is on the Kylie Jenner plan , her lips and breasts grew overnight and look fake as heck but again deny deny.

      This is why I have such an issue with celebrities who lie about all they have done and what they do to look a certain way. They want us to believe they are so perfect but in reality they aren’t. But it impacts women (and men) all over because they can’t understand why they don’t look like that. Makes me sick.

    • kat says:

      I’m in the same boat, two c-sections in two years, kids are 2 and 3 now. I look perpetually about 4-5 months pregnant. I’m just rolling with it, and have just started telling people that I’m not pregnant, just fat. So at least now they’ve stopped asking. :) Flat bellies are for so last year anyhow!

    • pinetree13 says:

      That’s why I think pictures like these are harmful. I saw that first picture and was like “WOW she looks amazing and after 6 kids? I can’t even get it together after 2!” Then I saw the REAL photos and was like “OOOHHHHH okay that’s healthy but attainable”.

  16. TT says:

    She is only 37?!?!!?

  17. lisa says:

    she was just on DWTS last month, she didnt look like that

    she looked fine but is she counting on everyone going blind since halloween?

  18. Isa says:

    She looks like a character from the Sims game.

  19. JudyK says:

    Always the lady, always the Class Act.

  20. snowflake says:

    I do not understand what her husband sees in hershe’s rude and crude and nasty.he’s attractive and well off what made him get with her? And yes the picture is photo shopped. She doesn’t have a thigh gap and her thighs are bigger in the pap pictures. In her video, she shows her stomach but keeps her thighs covered up and is in all black. Why is it so hard for people to be real?

  21. Murphy says:

    I like to watch her show sometimes but her bad attitude on instagram just ruins it for me. Plus its already clear that Brielle is absolutely turning into her mom. She better find some really rich guy or she’s in a for a tough wake up call when Kroy retires. They all are really.

  22. Paloma says:

    She’s deluded.

  23. Callais5 says:

    She makes me want to vomit. She is the epitome of vulgarity, trashiness and human excrement all rolled into one massive F bomb.

  24. LilyLizard says:

    As someone who teaches Photoshop, I can say that some of her photos are pretty obviously tweaked, BUT more of it has to do with how she poses, she’s knows her angles, so she’s portraying herself how she wants to be seen. You stand a certain way, legs a part but toes together your body looks a little different, so though not every image is digitally altered, she’s just as guilty as most people of using flattering lighting, strategic posing and angles to make herself look a certain way.

    That top photo of her looks manipulated to me, look at her right side, her hip where the bikini touches is soft and blurry, a tell tale sign of manipulation, and her arm is uneven, so someone did a bit of a chop job. And then of course there’s her bellybutton.

    I’m a fan of hers, like I find her to be entertaining, she says wild outrageous things and I’m just mesmerized by her nonsense, but it is all nonsense.

  25. Kelly says:

    There was a shot of her in the hospital where she had no makeup on, and she looked ten years younger. She’s be a lot prettier if she didn’t trash herself out with the makeup, the contouring etc.

    • Jayna says:

      She looked bizarre to me because of all of her plastic surgery. She’s unrecognizable from the woman she was years ago.

  26. Holmes says:

    If you don’t want people to comment on your bikini pictures and speculate as to whether or not they may be altered, don’t post them on social media. Pretty simple.

  27. Ang says:

    Please people everything about this person is fake or altered, she has had a ton of plastic surgery and it’s obvious, she only wears wigs. She shallow as all get out her mouth is unexceptable ( the language ) she uses around her kids. I can’t believe she has her own show and fans😲

  28. My Two Cents says:

    These Bravo housewives are the biggest fakery on tv. This woman’s only success in life was first finding a wealthy married man to attach herself to (big papa) and then snagging a pro football player. From that and her vulgar mouth they spun a reality show? I am ashamed to admit I know that much about her!

  29. iheartgossip says:

    Oh honey, you’re insane.

  30. Jayna says:

    She must have fans and she must think they are idiots. Who puts out selfies in dark lighting to PROVE the photos taken by paps in broad daylight are false and EXPECTS people to fall for it. LOL

  31. Joy says:

    It’s odd and telling to me that a person who’s trying to prove their body IS as skinny/curvy as they claim is not using an actual mirror (or having someone else film her). It appears like she’s filming her reflection on a surface that’s dark and super glossy/reflective but not a mirror……which almost gives the impression that she’s wearing a flesh toned waist compressor………..

    Either way, she has nothing to be ashamed of even if she’s not that ridiculously skinny/curvy!

  32. Suzanne says:

    I like Kim…I get a kick out of her but she and her husband, Kroy, who seems like a genuinely nice guy…are just middle class…bordering on white trash couple who prove money doesn’t give you class! She is obsessed with her appearance…and constantly posting selfies to gain the assurance she is sexy and pretty and near perfect. She admitted on camera she was getting a tummy tuck, boob lift and God knows what else…just before all the new puffy top lip and nose changing took place…so my guess is…she got a five for the price of one deal at her local plastic surgeon. Talentless people come and go…she’ll be around another couple years…and then fade in to the midst.

  33. Kim says “F you is you think it’s Photoshopped?”

    Well, F***k me.

  34. redd says:

    Pure class, this broad.
