Kim Zolciak is going dancing! The Don’t Be Tardy star will hit the dance floor for season 21 of Dancing With the Stars, E! News has exclusively learned from multiple sources. ABC does not comment on casting rumors.
Kim shot to fame on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. From there, she launched a singing career—don’t deny, you know you love “Tardy for the Party” and “Google Me”—and got her spinoff, the appropriately titled Don’t Be Tardy…
A mom of six, Kim is married to footballer Kroy Biermann. The two met while Kim was on RHOA and their wedding was chronicled for a spinoff. Other women from the Real Housewives world to compete on DWTS include Lisa Vanderpump and Nene Leakes.
Season 21 of Dancing With the Stars also includes Nick Carter, Bindi Irwin, teen sensation Hayes Grier and jockey Victor Espinoza. E! News has also learned Paula Deen, Chaka Khan, Alex Vega and Big Time Rush’s Carlos Pena will also be part of the growing cast.
Returning professional dancers this season include Karina Smirnoff, Val Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Artem Chigvintsev, Allison Holker, Witney Carson, Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd.
Dancing With the Stars returns September 14 on ABC. The full cast will be announced on Good Morning America on September 2. Kim’s Don’t Be Tardy airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
