Kim Zolciak

*Former “Real Housewife” and “Don’t Be Tardy” singer Kim Zolciak reveled all about her love of cosmetic surgery during a new interview with E! News.

“I will always nip and tuck if I feel the need to do so, but I’m open about it,” she tells the site. “I don’t care. You only go around one time, and I especially understand that. And life is very short, so there’s no reason for me to lie.”

While there have been rumors that the reality TV star has had her nose and lips done, as well as a face lift, Zolciak assures that she’s only had a couple of procedures, including a tummy tuck.

“I had a boob job and I’ve had a hernia fixed,” she says. “I had a pretty big hernia from the twins, so I said just do a tummy tuck, which is kinda the same thing, just make the skin really tight. But that doesn’t change my size. I’m the same size I was the day I walked into surgery, I’m just a little bit tighter looking.”

Despite paying to keep her body and looks in tact, Kim insists her “beauty” can primarily be attributed to genetics  and eating healthy.

“I’ve been a size 27 jean my whole life,” she reveals. “I definitely think genetics play a role, and I don’t eat tons at a meal. I love dessert, not gonna lie, definitely have dessert every night. Just a little brownie, not a big sundae. I think eating in moderation is key for people. I think the portion sizes that are out there today are just insane.”

Kim hopes that by being honest about her cosmetic procedures, it will help other women feel just as beautiful, whether they are all natural or not.

“If I chose a life of reality television, which is an open book, so I share with people what I’ve done. There’s no secrets. I want women to feel as beautiful as I feel, and so, with that said, it’s not all natural. My boobs aren’t natural. I had great boobs until I breastfed Brielle and then they just shriveled up to be raisins. They were horrible. So I must fix them.”
