Kim Zolciak’s approach to parenting her eldest daughter Brielle Biermann is far from traditional — and a recent tweet the Real Housewife sent to Chrissy Teigen shows just how irreverent Zolciak can be.
While 4-year-old son Kash is healing after being attacked by a dog, the reality TV star decided to try to reward him with tickets to an upcoming John Legend concert in Atlanta, Ga. Rather than pull out her credit card, she took to Twitter to play her celebrity card, and wrote, “@chrissyteigen sooo ur hubby is comin to ATL may19 & Kash is beyond OBSESSED w him! who does Brielle have to blow in order to meet him?? LOL.”
You read that correctly: Zolciak pretended to sell her daughter’s body for the benefit of her son.
The quick-witted Teigen, who doesn’t shock easily, replied, “Plz don’t blow anyone it’s not that good of a show. Jk it’s good but I’ll get you tix without the oral.”
@Kimzolciak Plz don't blow anyone it's not that good of a show. Jk it's good but I'll get you tix without the oral

Other followers were less forgiving of Zolciak jokingly offering up her 20-year-old daughter for sexual favors.
“Just a suggestion, but you know you can just go on Ticketmaster and not pimp out your daughter?” wrote Caroline Feraday. And Paige Craig asked, “Why wouldn’t anyone talking about their daughter ‘blowing’ someone. Where did class go???”
“That joke didn’t go over well Kim especially bc the joke is about your daughter,” Jamie said. “It’s a joke but it not a good one.”
Psychologist Barbara Greenberg did not find this joke funny in the least. “She should be ashamed of herself for disparaging her daughter and using her daughter’s sexuality in any kind of way to get her other child’s needs met,” she told Yahoo Beauty. “It’s disparaging women in general. We are about much more than our sexuality. It’s not something to be made light of.”
Even though Zolciak wasn’t being serious, Greenberg said that it’s inappropriate to jest this way in such a public medium. “Keep in mind that there are millions of people who are going to read it who are not going to interpret it as a joke. We have to be aware of the impact of our words on others.”
Anyone who has been following the Don’t Be Tardy star in recent years might already be familiar with her not-quite-motherly relationship with Brielle, whom she had when she was 18.
The two share an affinity for extreme beauty routines, such as waist training.
“I’ve heard her complain about her lips since she came out of the womb, honestly,” she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “I was like, ‘I’m going to take you to the best.’ ”
Brielle isn’t always comfortable with her mother’s attitude, as shown in February, when she was photographing Zolciak and husband Troy Biermann for Valentine’s Day. Her mother grabbed her husband’s crotch during the shoot.
“Goodbye,” Brielle deadpanned on Snapchat, according to Entertainment Tonight. “What the f***!”
But in this case, she decided to roll with her mom’s twisted sense of humor. After all, she’s probably used to it by now. On Twitter, Bravo TV producer Michael Beck offered his own services with the hashtag #BJsforBackstage, to which Brielle replied, “yessss let michael do it instead pls thnx chrissy :).”
