Kim Plath makes some major changes in her life.
As Welcome to Plathville Season 4 kicked off, Kim revealed to fans that she’s made some changes. She certainly isn’t the same mom that she’s been on the previous seasons of the show.
In the first episode, fans saw Kim in a tiny skirt and high heels as she danced in the living room with her four daughters who still live at home. Lydia, Mercy, Amber, and Cassia danced with their mother and followed her lead.
As shown on Welcome to Plathville, Kim is also opening her own dance studio. She’s learning about herself and questioning her relationship with her husband, Barry.
Welcome to Plathville fans question Kim’s intentions.
On Reddit, TLC viewers are discussing the Season 4 premiere episode. Many of them have something to say about Kim’s change and her intentions. Some believe she might be trying to stay relevant on the show.
One Welcome to Plathville fan claims, “The show isn’t revolving around her anymore, so let’s try and get it to be all about her again.”
“I think the Kim story is scripted. They have not been getting the camera time the older kids do so they are fluffing a story,” adds another.
Others think that Kim ended up making herself the victim when raising her kids in such a sheltered environment. One Reddit user says, “Now, Kim feels stiffled by her life, and wants to break free, after stifling, and stunting the growth of her children.”
Some fans also note that they don’t really care about Kim and Barry at all and would rather just watch the kids. However, they do think that she is trying to stay relevant and keep herself on the show.
One fan even teases that Kim is preparing for her very own spin-off.
So, do you agree with fans that Kim Plath is just trying to stay relevant? Or do you think she genuinely felt like it was time for a change? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. And come back to TV Shows Ace for more Plath family news.
