Dancing With the Stars‘ twenty first season premiered this past Monday night and Don’t Be Tardy/ former Real Housewives of AtlantaÂ star Kim Zolciak Biermann made her dancing debut. With an Egyptian-themed salsa performance and killer outfit, Kim danced with partner Tony Dovolani to the song “Hey Mama” by Nicki Minaj and David Guetta. The mother of six did get a score of 12 out of 30 points and got emotional after her performance.
She spoke to E! News about her experience saying,Â “It’s a lot to take in. I think that yes I get the dance, but letting go is a very hard thing to do for somebody who is in such controlâ€¦it’s something I need to work on. I’ll work on it until I win.”
This is a big step for me. A minute seems like a lifetime. I’m just really grateful.”
As for her tears at the end of the dance,Â “For me it was tears of joy, happiness. I’m really proud of me, even though they don’t think I did great, in my mind I did great.”
