It would be a massive understatement to say that Kim Zolciak has been having a rough time lately.
Kim has suffered one PR crisis after another in recent months, and it doesn't look as though her troubles will be letting up anytime soon.
Most of the drama has centered around Kim's parenting skills (or lack thereof).
First, she was criticized for posting bikini photos while her son was in the hospital recovering from a nasty dog bite.
Shortly thereafter, critics claimed that Zolciak "pimped" her daughter, Brielle Biermann, on social media, offering sexual favors in exchange for a chance to meet John Legend.
Kim claimed she was joking, and she probably was, but still ... not a good look.
Like we said, it's been a rough few weeks for the reality star, and now it looks as though her finances are in as much a state of upheaval as her home life.
Rumors that Zolciak is broke have been circulating for quite some time now, but over the weekend, the 39-year-old seemed to basically confirm that she's struggling with an unsexpected Instagram post:
That's Kim's boat.
She posted the above photo of it in hopes that one of her fans would take it off for her hands for the princely sum of $170,000.
"Serious inquiries only!!" Kim captioned the photo.
"FOR SALE KILLER DEAL. Boat and trailer $170k email email@example.com LINK IN MY BIO!"
The post might not be such a red flag on its own, but appearing as it does amidst rumors that Kim is in a full-blown financial panic, it seems to indicate that the problem is even worse than we initially thought.
Kim knew how such an advertisement would be perceived, and it seems she wouldn't have posted it unless she was desperate.
Kim's huaband, Kroy Biermann, was earning big bucks as an NFL player, but his career seems to have prematurely come to an end.
With six kids and a lavish lifestyle to support, it looks as though Kim is now struggling to make ends meet.
Zolciak recently returned to The Real Housewives of Atlanta after vowing she never would.
She later revealed that it was the promise of a paycheck that lured her back.
“Everything has a price,” Kim said in a recent interview.
“I’m just giving it to you straight. Given the right amount of money for anything? Yeah, count me in. I like to work. I have six children to support, so for sure!”
Unfortunately, it looks like the gig didn't pay "keep your boat through the end of summer" cash.
