The photo above is the three oldest Biermann ladies:, mom Kim (center), and daughters Brielle (left) and Ariana (right). The Biermann family has an interesting brand, which is supposedly “what you see is what you get.” Kim claims full transparency on all her plastic surgery and procedures, but even Andy Cohen called BS on that. Kim has also gone on record as saying her kids may not go under the knife until they are 18 years old. Ariana is currently only 17 so, by Kim’s own decree, we should be able to assume Ariana has not had any work done at all. Brielle, 22, has only admitted to lip fillers, due to insecurities. Whether or not any of that is true, with the hair, makeup and exaggerated angles and expressions, it’s hard to look at any Biermann photo and call it “natural.” Nothing wrong with wanting to maintain a certain look, of course. But apparently, Brielle wants us to know she’s well aware of how they come off because on Tuesday, she posted this:
Come on, that’s funny. She making fun of herself using the criticisms lobbed against her as the punchline – that’s impressive. Of course, others didn’t see (or get) the humor in this and let Brielle know about it:
Fans apparently had mixed reactions about this post, especially because the “Don’t Be Tardy” family has been heavily criticized in the past for their looks that seem to have changed over the years.
“You all look like Quack Quack!!!” said one follower. “BOTOX OVERLOAD,” wrote another.
Some fans are genuinely concerned, and pleaded for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star to stop the plastic surgery. “You’re ruining your beautiful face,” captioned one fan. “Yall need to stop.”
Some people are applauding the young reality star for being so open, saying things like “Thank god that you own it!! So tired of people being ashamed to have work done” and “Realest caption ever.”
As I see it, the dissenters et al. are playing right into Brielle’s hand. Kim, Ariana and Brielle have just launched KAB Cosmetics. For now, the entire line is lip kits, which makes perfect sense since that’s what they are known for. All three women post glamour photos of themselves all over their Instagram pages so another one wasn’t going to cause any commotion. But that caption absolutely would – and did. It’s like the Instagram equivalent of, “Come at me.” Folks analyze every detail and after they fire off their comment, they think, oh my gosh, that really is a cute lip color, what’s it called? Boom, link in the bio.
We will probably be doing this for a while, looking at offspring like Brielle and wondering if they haven’t mapped a better road for themselves than the likes of Olivia Jade. As CB pointed out, they know their strengths and are playing to them. If Brielle and Ariana want to be pretty and take pictures of themselves to sell stuff, maybe they shouldn’t be discouraged. They’re earning a living without taking someone else’s spot in a college they don’t want to attend. There are a lot of things to get worked up about the Biermanns but I’m not going to challenge their career goals anymore.
However, as far as Brielle’s cheeky comments are concerned: Ariana turns 18 in October. Something tells me that the three really will use their lip filler punch card to get a new pucker together.
