As curiosity continues to grow surrounding her relationship with female DJ Tracy Young, Kim Zolciak, star ofÂ Bravo‘sÂ The Real Housewives of Atlanta, finally speaks out! The reality star confirms that she’s bisexual and offers details behind the slowly developing relationship between she and Young. Keep reading for the real story in Kim’s own words…
Rumors have been circulating for quite some time about the sexuality ofÂ Kim Zolciak, star ofÂ Bravo‘sÂ The Real Housewives of Atlanta. As more and more people have begun to question her relationship with female DJ Tracy Young, Kim has remained silent….until now. TheÂ Real Housewives of Atlanta star opens up about her relationship with Young, how it started, and what it means to her now.
Kim Zolciak acknowledges that there was a definite connection when she first met DJ Tracy Young. “We were both going through heartbreak at the time. I had split up withÂ Big Poppa, and she had just ended a relationship she had been in for three years. The first night we met, we just connected on a different level. We ended up talking for two hours. After that, we started working in the studio together, remixing ‘Tardy for the Party.’ We gradually became closer,”Â TheÂ Real Housewives of Atlanta star says.
Physically, the relationship moved a bit slower. “There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. OurÂ first kiss was passionate and exciting,” Zolciak says. When the story went public,Â TheÂ Real Housewives of Atlanta star said her silence wasn’t meant to be taken as a denial. “Iâ€™ve never denied anything. I donâ€™t lie. Iâ€™m not embarrassed by anything Iâ€™ve ever done in my life. But I wasnâ€™t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadnâ€™t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.”
Zolciak is grateful to have the opportunity to be open and honest about the relationship now and feels that she Â might offer courage to other gay or bisexual parents. “Iâ€™m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasnâ€™t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what Iâ€™m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, itâ€™s a huge relief for me,” she says.
