“I definitely didn’t expect the attention it got," Zolciak told me. "I was beyond overwhelmed. It was crazy but even I would want to know what’s under my wig. It’s been four, five years that I've been on TV and never shown it but I didn’t expect it to be the No. 1 story on so many sites. It was worldwide.”
Clearly enjoying the extra attention, Zolciak said she plans to go natural more often and leave the wigs in the closet.
But that wasn’t always the case. Zolciak said there was a time in her life about eight years ago when she wasn’t in great shape and had very little hair, which led her to wear wigs.
“At home I never wear a wig," Zolciak said. "My hairdressers said for the wedding day I should wear my real hair. I thought the complete opposite. But they pissed me off so much over the course of two months, I thought, you know what, I’m going to show America.”
