Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak found her dream wedding dress three years ago.
There was only one problem.
"I had no groom, no ring, nothing," Zolciak told Anderson Cooper on his talk show Anderson set to air May 17.
Despite being "in love" with the dress, Zolciak told Cooper she resisted the temptation to shell out for the $58,000 price tag at the time – but when she got engaged to Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann in October 2011, her first call was to Baracci, the Los Angeles boutique where she had seen it.

Looks like Atlanta is down one Housewife: Sheree Whitfield says she's leaving the popular Bravo show because she's tired of all the drama.
"After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave," the Real Housewives of Atlanta castmember tells Wetpaint Entertainment. "The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I'm tired of the fighting and the cattiness."
Continues the reality star: "I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect. I wish the rest of the women the best of luck."

From wig-pulling to going on tour, Kim Zolciak is no stranger to reality-TV drama. But starting a family with NFL hubby Kroy Biermann has given her a new set of priorities.
"Having a new baby changes you," Zolciak – who is also mom to daughters Brielle and Ariana from a previous relationship – told PEOPLE on Tuesday.
"I used to cover my eyes sometimes [during my Housewives scenes]. I'd be like, 'Oh, god.' And now, this season ... it's been incredible ... I wasn't involved with the drama."
