Conclusion.  A trip to Kroy's Montana hometown continues with a visit to Kroy's high school and a ranch from his past, yet Kim misses the joys of Atlanta.  As the family vacation comes to a close, Kroy receives a game-changing call.

Bruce having one of Kim's wigs on his wall cracked me up. I'll bet he does a hilarious imitation of Kim for his buddies. Guys out in empty country have to do something other than hunt, drink, and play poker.

Those kids are definitely rowdy. I have 3, ages 5-8, and my boys are always wrestling and rough-housing. But the Bierman kids put mine to shame! But did you ever notice that when Kroy comes around they're a lot more well behaved? Probably for two reasons. One, he actually interacts and plays with them a lot, so they respect him. And also, they know he means business. The girls and Kim just have this totally resigned attitude. "Kash, stop!" - while looking at your phone. Kash knows you aren't going to actually do anything. But when Kroy walks in? He gets them to quiet down and walk out to the car two-by-two, holding hands. 

I do agree with Brielle a bit, though - that SHE didn't have all these kids, so she shouldn't always be responsible for the little ones. I mean, what do they have the nannies for? But here's an easy way to fix that - move out. 

I will say this for Kim - she may be crass around her own group, but she's always very polite with people outside the family. At the school and the ranch, I took notice of how appreciative she was and really made their hosts feel special. 

I did love seeing Kroy back at his old school, knowing all the teachers. And I got to say, I felt a little skeevey, because 16-year-old Troy on the wall was HOT. Maybe he was 18 then? Let's hope so.

Seeing Kroy in his hometown and back visiting his old school and former teachers really made me wonder how on earth he ever got hooked up with Kim.  It seems like he would love nothing more than to move back to Montana, have a house with land and cows, etc. and Kim doesn't know an antelope from a cantaloupe.  

And really?  Telling everyone you were changing your tampon because you have your period?  Really tacky, Kim.

Hate to say that I agree with Brielle but I'm with @ghoulina - - all those kids are not Brielle's responsibility.  Ultimately they are Kim's and Kroy's, although if Brielle is living rent-free with them and they are paying all her expenses, she should help out.  And get a job.

Also agree with @ghoulina that the kids clearly respect Kroy.  It's very evident in how they listen and mind him versus their blowing off Kim entirely.

I rolled laughing when they were exiting the airport and Kim tried to herd the kids, telling them to move along. KJ (or maybe it was Kash) had been pulling his own roller case but then just left it and walked on out! I do find the kids mostly adorable and amusing. Good thing Kroy has some "kontrol" over them, for sure.

Oh for the love of Pete why does Kim constantly have to be primping and preening herself?  She uses any piece of glass/mirror she can constantly find!  Honey, you ain't all that and if you keep messing with that plastic surgery crap you will not know who is looking back at you in that mirror. You aren't a teen anymore so knock off the selfies, too!

$25K at the casino?!  I see Kroy is NOT amused in that sneak peek for next week.  Oh yeah they should procreate some more!

Yeah, Kim was playing 2 machines at one time.

Kim has such a rude awakening coming her way. Does she really think she can constantly blow money like that and there will be no consequences? Kroy is out of work and all she has is this show which I don't think is going to last another season or two if she's lucky.

I´m so curious about Kroy´s parents. I wonder what they are really like, why they´re not in Kroy´s life and how do they feel when Kroy takes the family to his old hometown and doesn´t visit them. It´s just so weird. Kim´s parents are horrible and I understand them being out of her life, but I have this image of Kroy´s family being wholesome. Maybe they believed something Kim´s parents said and Kroy can´t forgive them... Anyway, it´s just sad.

I never thought Kroy's family was wholesome, I mean look who their son married?  And WTF did Kim do to her face?  And please someone tell me why did this chick get her own show?  I guess Bravo was trying to get the Honey Boo Boo/Toddler's and Tiaras market audience.

Am I the only one who notices that Kim seems detached from her kids? She talks a big game of being into them and even wanting a seventh child (shudders) but...she walks in the room and just observes them and maybe says a couple words to them. I never see her running over and hugging them or cuddling with them and laughing on the couch.  She is just like some person who happens to live with them. Kroy is the parent I see actually parenting and being truly caring towards them.

Kroy seems wonderful...but he is one messed up dude somewhere inside. How did he end up with Kim?? I mean, a fling, fine. But he married and had four kids with this selfish narcissist?? AND adopted her own two kids who have no present fathers of their own?? Yikers. What was he thinking??

No wonder his parents were disapproving. Anyone can see that Kim is a user and manipulator and will blow right through Kroy's money.

I felt sad that Kroy kept mentioning getting a house in Montana and Kim would quickly shut him down, "never sweetie" and he just accepts that. She really wears the pants! I think Montana looks gorgeous and would love to be on vacation there but of course Kim and her bratty daughters could only complain and think about Starbucks. Pathetic people. They have nothing interesting to say or discuss. Just wigs, Starbucks, Louis Vuitton and plastic surgery. Wow.

Kroy was what, 28(?) when he married Kim and adopted her almost grown daughters?  Then the rabbit speed breeding began and at 31 has 6 kids.  If his parents had watched Kim and all the Big Daddy drama on RHOA, I'm sure his parents had their concerns.  Add to that, his career which has a short lifespan so his future earnings are in question.  The parents probably voiced their concerns to Kroy, who probably repeated the conversation to Kim, and, Kim probably gave him an ultimatum that it was her or his parents.  Just a guess but I watched my master manipulator sil do just that and I can see Kim doing it as well.

Kim made her own money before meeting Kroy. I don't think that she is a gold digger but I do think that she is into fame. (Yes, I know Big Daddy supported her but that was before RHoA). Most women want a man who has as much or more money than they do. 

Kim reminds me of Jacqueline Siegel, Queen of Versailles. Jackie Siegel admitted that she would not have had as many kids if she knew that she would have to take care of them all! She expected that the nannies would do the heavy lifting and they did so she kept pumping them out. Then, the economy turned and she had to lay off most of her staff. I see Kim finding herself in a similar situation now that she is the breadwinner of the family. These reality shows have a short shelf life. It will be interesting to see the Biermann family five years from now. 

Most in-laws would have trouble accepting Kim as their daughter-in-law. How do you make someone like Kim feel welcome?

Hopefully they'll fade into obscurity.

He had sex with her, got her pregnant, wanted to do the "right thing" and look where he is today; tied to Kim...yikes that's a real American Horror Story.

Sadly, my prediction is that as Kim and Kroy's clout fades, Kim will REALLY push Brielle and Arianna into their own reality career to keep the money rolling in. Just watch.

It still shocks me that Kim can possibly be in her 30's. I would guess her at age 48.

Kroy had better make it right with his folks.  Once the gravy train dries up, and Kim kicks him to the curb, he may need a place to live.

The ratings for this season are pretty lackluster.  Tardy used to average a million viewers and now they're down to the mid 700s.  I can't for the life of me figure why they would got to Montana and flaunt the fact that they've cut Kroy's family off.  Maybe there's a perfectly good reason (I doubt it) but since they're not telling it's hard not to blame Kim and dislike her for it.  At least it is for me.

I can see this.  Kim could very well be the next Kris Jenner.  

 

Her bio says she is 38?!   She looks rough for her age.

38 my ass. I found an old picture of her online when Arianna was a baby. If she is 38 now she should have been about 23 in the picture. She actually looked 38 then. She could EASILY pass for 48 now. I find it nearly impossible to believe that she is 38, there is just no way.

Again, what was in it for Kroy?? So he married some rough, hardened woman who is WAY older than him. She says seven years older, I'm guessing 14! She is materialistic, spends all of his money on plastic surgery and gambling and barely attends to her own children. A master manipulator. She had two kids already from two different men and actually got him to adopt those kids! What kind of Kool-Aid did she feed this guy?! This woman was worth cutting ties with your family for Kroy??  Utterly dumbfounded.

Eh, I don't have any trouble buying that Kim is 38. I'm 36 and I don't think she looks all that much older than I do. She has a very square jaw and has always worn way too much makeup. I think that tends to make women look "harsh" and older than they really are.
