Why does Kim Zolciak wear a wig? She blames anemia, thyroid condition for hair loss / wig use

Why did kim Zolciak lose her hair?

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 2 Reunion Special, Part 1 Andy Cohen brought up Kim’s odd story at last year’s reunion about how not having cancer made her hair fall out. Basically, Kim delivered the story with the word “cancer” upfront to make everyone feel shocked and sad for her, until she later revealed that she hadn’t actually had the disease, but some other “issues”. It was a really odd story that made Lisa Wu Hartwell so riled up she threatened to throw Kim over the couch.

Kim tried to move on, but Andy kept at her until she said said she had anemia and a thyroid problem. He repeated “So you’re saying you had anemia and a thyroid problem, and that made your hair fall out?” Kim replied, “yes.”

Being the investigative reporter that I am, I googled this, and found that in fact, both anemia and thyroid issues can cause you to shed follicles. Assuming that Kim actually had these conditions (which she says she’s managing with pills), she should have just said that from the beginning without throwing in the dreaded C-word to make herself look like a lying attention hound.

Andy simply wouldn’t let Kim get away with anything last night, because he even goaded her about Big Poppa. Andy Cohen is relentless. Kim insisted that she was done with Big Papa until she saw his divorce papers, and she is currently seeing other people. She also insisted that she wasn’t a “mistress” because Big Poppa “sleeps” in her bed 6 days a week and his wife lives in California.

Interestingly enough, Big Poppa showed up while the reunion special was taping to offer Kim support. Kim said that she hasn’t talked to him in a while, but he stopped by to check on her because he knew the last reunion had been so rough. According to Andy, Kim gave Big P some serious lip action before he left. That old fire must still be burning.
