The couple has kept their followers on the edge of their seats filing to end their marriage twice in 2023. The estranged pair’s second divorce proceedings received widespread attention, with authorities repeatedly barging into their home to sort out domestic disputes.
Living in the same space seemed impossible for the duo, and everyone expected the finalization of their separation. However, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star shocked the world by re-embracing her husband’s last name. Are the lovebirds about to pull a second reconciliation? Their recent actions say so.
Kim Zolciak Returns Married Name On Her Social Media Profile
The “Don’t Be Tardy” star’s 3.4M followers were pleasantly surprised when the blonde beauty added her married name to her Instagram handle. The 45-year-old previously ditched “Biermann” from her social media page following the former athlete’s first divorce filing in May.
The entertainer did not return her married name to her Instagram page and continued using “Zolciak” after her partner filed for the second dissolution of their vows in August. However, the couple’s household seems to be well, with the TV personality’s latest hint at a possible reunion.
The proud mother of six changed her old handle, “@kimzolciak” to “@kimzbiermann.” Additionally, her display name received the same update to become “Kim Zolciak-Biermann.” That’s not all; the influencer revealed the name change had occurred on other social media platforms, sharing her Snapchat handle “@KimZBiermann” in her Instagram bio.
If the name change is Zolciak’s expression of her willingness to reconcile with Biermann, are her feelings mutual? The reality TV star may not be alone, as the former athlete recently joined her in celebrating the 12th anniversary of their marriage.
For people going through a divorce, the pair were far from those ready to cut their bonds. The lovebirds were spotted over the weekend celebrating their union at an Italian restaurant in Georgia. The pair seemed happy as they enjoyed a delicious platter of lasagna, chicken parmes, and chocolate desserts.
The spouses did not keep their celebrations a secret, sharing a video of their outing on social media as though to announce their close relationship. Their anniversary dinner marked a significant step in the couple’s romance, given their previous rocky relationship amid their second divorce, per TMZ.
Things reportedly got so bad between the pair the divorce judge had to step in and divide their home in half so they could have little to no interactions. Talk about drastic measures! Unfortunately, Zolciak got the short end of the stick with her life shoved into the basement while Biermann was confined to the primary bedroom.
Despite their separation, law enforcers frequently visited the duo’s home to resolve several marital disputes. But, the storm seems to have passed with the couple’s recent display of affection, and they may eventually call off their second divorce like their first separation filing.
Kim Zolciak Previously Asked For Her Divorce To Be Dismissed
Zolciak’s re-embracing her husband’s last name was not the Pensacola native’s first hint at her unwillingness to separate from Biermann. Back in September, the mother of six requested the dismissal of her divorce over her continued sexual relationship with the former athlete. The legal document stated:
“The parties have engaged in marital sexual relations on multiple occasions since the filing of the Petition for Divorce and most recently on or about September 7, 2023.”
Zolciak’s team claimed a divorce based on their broken bond was false because of the ongoing intimacy between the pair. “The allegation of an irretrievably broken marriage is demonstrably false if the parties have resumed cohabitation or have reconciled for any period,” the petition read.
“The very fact of cohabitation or reconciliation shows that some possibility remains that the marriage is viable…the parties are required to affirm once again that the marriage is indeed irretrievably broken by the bringing of a new complaint,” the entertainer’s document continued, imploring the court to allow the duo’s marriage to continue.
Additionally, the legal filing stressed the “Dancing with the Stars” alum’s refusal to separate from Biermann because it was “based upon the parties’ lack of bona fide separation at the time of the filing and after the filing of the Petition.”
