Kim Zolciak-Biermann will be back to boogie on Dancing With the Stars this week. As fans gear up to see what she and parter Tony Dovolani will bring to week two (which airs Monday, September 21 on ABC), it's clear she wants to be there for the long haul. And Tony is breaking down the advice he gave to the Don't Be Tardy mom as they try their best to take home the mirror ball trophy.
"The advice that I gave her, from the start, is make sure that you understand that you are on Dancing With the Stars, that the fans are going to appreciate you being yourself," he told The Daily Dish. "They're going to appreciate seeing a mom who's trying to do something for herself while still taking care of her family. Make sure that people see you having a good time because, although it seems like a long time, 10 weeks, to be on Dancing With the Stars, it goes by really quick and you don't want to live with regrets. You want to give it everything you got that way when the show's over, no matter how long you last, at least you know you gave it your best. You never want to walk away coulda, shoulda, woulda."
The pair have been working hard to secure their spot in DWTS history. They were recently spotted working overtime this weekend, leaving a rehearsal space in Hollywood ahead of Monday's show where she will take the stage — and someone will be eliminated.
Things looks like they're really heating up inside the rehearsals (although it is hard not to shake it to R. Kelly's "Ignition Remix").
By the way, we encourage you to get on the line and vote, vote, vote for Kim and Tony. That's how we'll be spending our Monday.
Of course you can always get more of your Kim fix when you watch Don't Be Tardy Sundays at Sun 10/9c. Check out a preview of the next episode below.
