What's underneath Kim Zolciak's wig?
That's the question the Real Housewives of Atlanta
star finally answered – after a comic (and climactic) build-up – on Thursday's episode of her spinoff Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding
on Bravo. (Watch the big reveal below!)
The answer? Well, Kim has a full head of thick blonde hair.
Zolciak, who has long been identified
by her hairstyle (and even offered her thoughts
on other celebs' hairpieces), finally showed off her real hair to longtime stylist Derek J in the lead up to her wedding to Atlanta Falcon Kroy Biermann
Though Derek's seen her au natural before without cameras, viewers of the Housewives
have been waiting years for a glimpse.
"I love wigs and I look great in them," the reality star said on Thursday's episode before ditching the hairpiece.
Later Thursday night, Zolciak also Tweeted a photo
of herself watching the episode wigless, writing, "And YES that is all my own hair! Not extensions, not clip ins!!!!!! Alllllll me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
