Love her or hate her, Kim Zolciak keeps getting paid.
The local reality star is now three years removed from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" but has managed to maintain enough of a following to earn a fourth season of her "Don't Be Tardy" spinoff on Bravo. Production has already begun, according to the Georgia TV and film production office, which tracks TV programs shooting statewide.
The only other "Real Housewives" star to maintain a regular spinoff has been Lisa Vanderpump with "Vanderpump Rules."
Zolciak's show focuses exclusively on her family life with 29-year-old Falcons linebacker Kroy Biermann and her six kids. She and Biermann have four kids together. She has two teen-age girls from previous relationships.
The show has averaged about 1 million same-day viewers season two and three. The third season concluded last fall.
