kim zolciak destin fl real housewives atlantaKim Zolciak, best known for her appearance on the popular Real Housewives of Atlanta reality show on Bravo TV, turned the camera on her family this week with social media photos from her vacation in Destin, Florida during the filming of her own show, “Don’t be Tardy”. The 36-year-old has been posting heartwarming photos of special vacation moments to Instagram for several days. Kim is currently staying in the Crystal Beach area with husband  Kroy Biermann, daughters Arianna and Brielle Biermann, twin toddlers Kaia and Kane, celebrity stylist Shun Melson, and daughter Brielle’s boyfriend Slade Osbourne.

Just like so many Destin area visitors, the family (accompanied, of course, by their camera crew and production team) included a trip to Fudpucker’s Beachside Bar & Grill’s Destin restaurant and to Fudpucker’s Gator Beach, where they visited Pearl, the rare albino alligator that lives in the newly-designed alligator habitat at Fudpucker’s. The group dined Monday evening among other patrons, who had to sign releases to appear in the show and not to photograph or post about the star’s visit on social media until after their meal, in the colorful Down Under Bar, which features handpainted walls, floors, and tabletops by local artist Andy Saczynski.

Ms. Zolciak and family enjoyed their meal and posted several photos from Fudpucker’s to her 1 million followers on Instagram, including a group selfie in the restaurant parking lot (above), saying “Clowning with my besties” and a photo of Pearl, “How awesome is this Awesome Alligator at Fudpuckers! One of 50 in the world!”.

The “Don’t be Tardy” episode featuring the family’s visit to Fudpucker’s is expected to air in September.
