Kim Zolciak-Biermann showered her daughter, Brielle, with gifts for her 21st birthday. One of those presents was a fancy new gun. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star took to Snapchat to show Brielle unwrapping the rose gold gun wrapped with Disney wrapping paper, reports People.
"Oh my God, what am I going to do with this,” Brielle said, in a video shared on TMZ. Kim then explained that the gun was not loaded but her daughter may need it for protection when she ultimately moves out.
“You’re moving out so it’s time to figure it out. … It’s not loaded. … It’s a special one for you, it’s rose gold.”
Brielle then shared a photo of the gun on her Snapchat with the caption, "thanks papa!"
Following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School, the 39-year-old reality star has reacted with publicly wanting to protect her children. She took to Instagram to share that she and her husband, Kroy, bought bulletproof backpacks for their children.
"I just asked Kroy what can we do as parents to protect our children everyday in this crazy sad world,” Zolciak-Biermann wrote in an Instagram post on February 15. “He said, ‘best thing we could do for now is get bullet proof book bags.’ You know I just did! It’s better than not having anything at all. Just thought I would share with you guys. I just found this first on Amazon so I bought it. It’s certified.”
Zolciak is mother to Brielle, 16-year-old Ariana, 6-year-old KJ, 5-year-old Kash and 4-year-old twins Kaia and Kane. She rose to fame in 2008 with her appearance on the original "Real Housewives of Atlanta." It looks like her daughter is following in her footsteps. Zolciak shared last year that Brielle skipped college and lived at home as her mother's "assistant," in a report from Yahoo! Entertainment. She explained that Brielle doesn't have a traditional job because she makes "six figures on social media" in sponsored posts to her one million followers.
Brielle sells items like teeth-whitening treatments, vitamins for hair, supplements and tanning products. Such sponsored spots are frequently used as revenue streams for reality stars and Instagram personalities. In 2017, it was reported that very popular influencers like the Kardashians were generating upwards of $300,000 per post.
