Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann Divorce 

Kim publicly acknowledged her separation from Kroy on June 9 by changing her Instagram handle, officially dropping her married name. This move coincided with the anticipation among Real Housewives of Atlanta fans for Kim's return to the Bravo show, as teased in a trailer for season 15. Following the handle change, Kim shared photos of herself with fellow RHOA cast members.

However, in early July, less than two months after initially calling off their divorce, it was reported that Kroy refused to divorce Kim. Despite their previous reconciliation, Kroy sought to end their 12-year marriage again. In response, Kim contested the divorce, disputing Kroy's claim that their marriage was "irretrievably broken." In court documents, she pointed to their recent sexual encounters as evidence contradicting Kroy's initial assertions and subsequently filed a motion to dismiss her husband's divorce filing.
