In February, it was reported Zolciak and Biermann’s extravagant Georgia mansion was in foreclosure and set to go up for public auction in March allegedly due to Kim and Kroy defaulting on a $1.65 million loan they took out in 2012 against the property.

"If you guys think I would let my home that we've put millions and millions of dollars into go for $257,000, you're an idiot, okay? For real," she told her followers at the time.
