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.

  1. Why are so many people negative and mean. I know Kim has had issues in the past but everybody has the right to change or try to improve themselves. Let’s be a kinder nation and try and give people a chance.

  2. I can’t stand Kim she thinks everything is about her and that everyone owes her. Please stop showing her and Barry both are terrible. Honestly this show is just whacked. I only like the so. That’s married and his wife. The rest are whacked like the parents. Lydia is a joke she’s always in someone’s business. You really need to Pray more because you aren’t being a Godly young woman. Study your Bible more and live by it. And STOP GETTI G IN OTHER PEOPLES BUSINESS. MORIAH YOU GOT WHAT YOU DESERVED MAX TALKED TO YOU ABOUT HOW YOU DRESSED AND HOW YOU FLAUNTED AROUND PEOPLE JN THOSE SKIMPY CLOTHES.
    TAKE THIS SHOW OFF THE AIR.

  4. I dislike Kim Plath. She has an alcoholic personality. Self centered and a Bully.
    She also has to be the center of attention.

  5. I don’t understand her she is willing to do everything in her power to get rid of Olivia but now she wants to be this person who is not doing the right thing as far as her teaching go. How does she justify all the things she is doing when she never gave her older children to have any say or do? Why isn’t anyone speaking up and say stop you are wrong in this.
