Judging from that photo above (come on! that synthetic wig is EVERYTHING), this week’s Throwback Thursday victim has come a long way, baby! Kim Zolciak has only been on our radars for a few years now, but she has had already had quite the style metamorphosis since hitting our reality TV screens on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008. Kim has definitely upped her hair, makeup and wardrobe game over the years!
Take a look at the Kim Zolciak photos in our gallery and check out some of her early looks.
Reflecting on Kim and her battle with addiction, which played out throughout the season, Lisa shares, “It was hard to watch. I very much didn’t want to get involved because I think there were people that were closer to her than I was. But I think everybody knew that something was amiss. She just kept saying, ‘No, I’ve got this.'”
In response to an earlier report that claimed Kim Richards was drunk and/or high, belligerent, and verbally abusive at Thayer and Brooke‘s wedding in Mexico over the weekend, a “family insider” has come forward to downplay the report and make excuses for Kim’s behavior.
This is par for the course for this family full of deflectors and enablers, but what really disgusts me is, the insider threw Kim‘s mentally ill sonChad under a bus in the process.
The “family insider” confirmed that a sober coach accompanied Kim to Mexico, however, the sober coach pretended to be Kim’s Pilates instructor. The insider admitted that the sober coach quit and left the country. But, you know, it wasn’t Kim’s fault. The coach was just being dramatic.
After yet another uncomfortable exchange withBethenny Frankel on this week’s Real Housewives of New York, Heather Thomson is weary. And wary. And in need of a Bethenny “handbook” on how to navigate future conversations about, well, anything! In her Bravo blog, Heather admits she was happy to see Bethenny at Carole Radziwill’s election party, but she found Bethenny’s reaction to their discussion about custody a bit shocking, considering Bethenny talks about it All.Of.The.Time. “Our talk about her custody of Bryn was a simple conversation to bring clarity to a topic she often discusses,” says Heather. “I just didn’t realize that only Bethenny can address it. I feel like there are a lot of unwritten rules with her. What you can ask, what you can say, how you can feel…it’s a little tough to navigate.”
“Even silly small talk about a tattoo idea is difficult,” Heather continues. “I’ve been dying to cover an old one and had just seen Maleficent, which was so well done, and I was inspired! But Bethenny, however, is not. Maybe a handbook would be helpful?!” Also, Heather’s joy over Carole winning board election is equal to her joy over Sonja Morgan actually conjuring some semblance of a product line (or, let’s face it, a single product) at her Latino Show Magazine party. Offering that Sonja’s cover and editorial spread were “beautiful,” Heather adds, “Sonja is easy in front of a lens. She photographs beautifully, and the pictures were gorgeous–including the double truck (two-page ad spread) announcing the launch of her brand. I remain supportive of Sonja and was excited to meet her team for the first time and learn more.”
Bruce Jenner is petitioning a judge to throw out a wrongful death suit filed by the adult step-children of the victim of the fatal car accident he was involved in this February.
While it’s not entirely clear what ultimately caused the fatal car accident, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s SUV rear-ended a Lexus sedan driven by 69-year-old Kimberly Howe. Ms. Howe died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained from the accident, which Bruce described as a “devastating tragedy.” Five others were also injured, although Bruce was unharmed.
So far, this season of Little Women: NY has been bringing us a lot of bickering, but not much substance. But on this week’s finale episode, things get a bit more real (well, for “reality” TV, that is!). We begin at the ice skating rink with Kristin Zettlemoyer, Jason Perez, Jordanna James, andDawn Lang, who have all just returned from their Puerto Rico trip. Dawn’s not skating because of her brittle bone disease, which puts her at risk for broken bones easily. Kristin and Dawn have mended fences, as have Jason and Jordanna. But Misty Irwin is the new target of everyone’s anger because of her wishy-washy behavior, disloyalty, and general inability to tell the truth (as Kristin sees it). Everyone’s drinking the haterade at the rink, though, and jumps on board bashing Misty for basically being a bad friend. Because Kristin lives with Misty, she’s stressing the most over the situation.
But stress be damned! Because it’s Kristin’s 38th birthday soon and the group wants to throw her a party at which everyone will argue and back-stab. At Jordanna’s apartment later, her boyfriend Anthony tells her he got a job as an air traffic controller (yay!) that means he has to leave her for three months (boo!). She’s thrilled for him, but doesn’t want him to go. Later,Lila Call, Jordanna, and Jason go shopping for Kristin’s birthday bash. They don’t have a venue, cake, or food, but why not shop for costumes first? Good plan. Jordanna knows that Kristin’s biological clock is ticking, so she may not be thrilled about turning another year older. But Kristin’s much younger boyfriend, Josh, will be at the party to cheer her up. Again, good plan (?). They decide on a 1920s theme party, but nix Jason’s fantasy of Josh popping out of a cake wearing nothing but his birthday suit.
Jenelle Evans has a new attorney, and soon, a new mugshot! After her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith filed charges against her alleging that she assaulted him in the parking lot of his apartment building, she was issued a warrant by Myrtle Beach Police for criminal domestic violence. Jenelle has decided to turned herself into the police, but now Nathan wants those charges dropped. Is your head spinning yet?
Jenelle’s new attorney Amy S. Lawrence reveals that the Teen Mom 2 star regrets her actions, and will be cooperating with the police! “I can confirm that there is a warrant out for Jenelle’s arrest for criminal domestic violence, stemming from an incident that happened last night,” she confirmed.
