Kim Zolciak's show Don't Be Tardy with daughters Brielle and Ariana Biermann 'canceled' by Bravo after eight seasons

KIM Zolciak's show, Don't Be Tardy, with daughters Brielle and Ariana Biermann has been "canceled" by Bravo after eight seasons.

Kim, 42, Brielle, 24, and Arianna, 19, will not be returning for a ninth season now that the program has been given the axe.

A source close to the production side said Bravo had ultimately chosen not to move forward and renew the TV show for another season.

The final season of Don't Be Tardy got off to a rocky start.

The season 8 premiere had been delayed by about three months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The cable network decided that the long-running show had overall " run its course," added the insider. 

Kim released a statement about the cancellation: "The Biermann family is extremely grateful for their 13 year plus relationship with Bravo and NBC Universal. We greatly appreciate and value the support from all of our fans as we continue to grow in the entertainment industry.

"In times of significant growth there are steps that have to be strategically taken, but rest assured, you will see the Biermann family on you TV screens again very soon."

Kim concluded: "Grab yourself a glass of wine and stay tuned."

Last month, Brielle recently mourned the loss of her best friend, Ethan McCallister, 28, who was the victim of a hit-and-run. 

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star pleaded with fans on social media to help them find the suspected driver.

A police spokesperson exclusively told The Sun that the suspect was driving around in a "dark-colored Range Rover." 

The police spokesperson added: "The investigation continues at this time."

The police statement read: "On scene officers found that an adult male had been in the roadway and was hit by a vehicle.

"The vehicle, a dark colored Range Rover, left the scene after striking the pedestrian.

"The pedestrian was taken to the hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries. The Accident Investigation Unit is continuing the investigation."

After sharing a bunch of heartfelt snapshots, Kim described Ethan as having this "huge beautiful smile."

Kim added that she "will make sure justice is served."

In a lengthy emotional tribute, Brielle wrote: "I can’t believe I’m even writing this. I’m sick sick sick to my stomach. You are my happiness my joy my light in this very dark world.. the life of the party and the sweetest soul I’ve been blessed to know.

"You are my best friend. My heart. My everything. There will never be another you. Ever ever ever. You came into this world with 1 mission… make people smile. You were damn good at it too. There was never a moment I wasn’t laughing with you!!

"We haven’t spent a weekend apart all year!!! How am I supposed to go anywhere without you? How am I supposed to laugh, smile, GO TO MIAMI OR DRINK 1942 WITHOUT YOU!? God, I love you, Ethan. I really really do. I can’t wait to see you again."

A GoFundMe page had been set up to raise money for Ethan's memorial.

With its goal to raise $100K, the page has already earned more than $70K in donations.
