The Real Housewives of Atlanta threw themselves a premier party to celebrate their upcoming second season. The 2nd season is set to premier tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
In attendance were housewives – Kim Zolciak, Lisa Wu-Hartwell, Sheree Whitfield and NeNe Leakes — along with new Housewife Kandi Burruss. Honorable sixth housewife, Dwight Eubanks was also in attendance. Sheree’s hair looks umm interesting, while Kim’s hair looks great for Kim standards.
In other news, Nene will reportedly expose Kim’s past as a stripper in her new autobiography titled “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice.” Kim’s ex publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, echoed the same story when he claimed Kim used to be a stripper in Atlanta back in 2003, who went by the name of Barbie.
Nene writing about Kim’s stripping past is interesting, considering the fact that she is also rumored to have been a past stripper. Seems Danielle Staub of the New Jersey Housewives is in good company.
Dlisted also posted the below photo of Kim Zolciak during her high school freshman year. No the photo is not from the 80′s, but was taken in 1993. Interestingly, pre plastic surgery Kim looks a lot like her eldest daughter.
Over 10 million viewers witnessed Ed Swiderski’s proposal to Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette’sseason finale. The overjoyed couple sat down to talk to PEOPLE in its most recent issue about getting engaged on TV, and their future plans. Both Ed and Jillian believe they have a normal relationship even though they met on the ABC reality dating show.
The duo are really excited now that they can finally be seen together in public following the engagement, which was filmed on May 24 in Hawaii. The love birds are already discussing a 2010 wedding.
“It feels more normal than any relationship I’ve ever had,” Harris says. “It’s very strange how it’s such a contradiction to have something so normal come from something that’s so manic.” “When we’re together it’s very real,” she says. “We make dinner, we drink in the hot tub, we watch movies, and we fall asleep in front of the TV.”
According to Ed, the two biggest things he has come to appreciate about his new fiancée are how important family is to her and her cooking.
Kim Kardashian breaks her silence following split from boyfriend, Reggie Bush. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star thanked her fans for all the goodwill messages.
“I just want to let you all know that I truly appreciate all the love and support I’ve been receiving over the last 48 hours,” Kardashian wrote on her blog. “I just want you all to know I’m doing okay, and I really appreciate your support,” she went on. “I’ve been reading all your comments and I really have the best fans ever! I love you guys!”
Earlier this week, Kim’s rep confirmed to Usmagazine that the had couple called it quits after almost 2 years of dating. Sources blame the breakup on the couple’s busy schedules.
MTV has announced today that the 6th season of The Hills will premier Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 10 p.m. EST.
The 5th season will bring some major changes, as it will be the first season without Lauren Conrad. It will also include newest cast member and former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari.
Joining Kristin will be the series’ regulars — including Heidi and Spencer Pratt, Lo Bosworth and Audrina Patridge. Kristin, who has previously admitted she was brought on the show for dramatic purposes, has promised to bring back the drama by, “Drinking, fighting, hooking up — all that good stuff!” she joked.
TELL US – WILL YOU CONTINUE TO WATCH WITHOUT LAUREN CONRAD?
So should we expect to see some wig snatching as shown in the previews? No says Kim. She tells UsWeekly, “No. It didn’t happen.” The previews have show cast mate Sheree Whitfield pulling on Kim’s wig hair during a heated argument.
What we can expect however is a lot more drama than the first season. “There’s a ton more drama!” says Kim, who also admits to “definitely” being in the center of it all due to “a lot of miscommunication.”
New housewife on the block, Kandi Burruss also admits to being nervous about the show. “It’s very interesting,” she says. “I’m very nervous of how people will respond. We don’t get to see how it’s edited. We only get the episodes a week in advance. I don’t know how it’s going to come off. But I’m looking forward to it.”
TELL US – WILL YOU BE TUNING IN FOR THE PREMIER TOMORROW?
This will be Kate’s residence as she and Jon will be sharing their parenting duties, and custody of the kids at their Pennsylvania home. When one parent stays at the Pennsylvania house with the kids, the other will take off to their individual apartments. Jon is also renting a condo in New York.
Another interesting tidbit, Kate’s new condo will be located just a block away from bodyguard, Steve Neild‘s office in Rockville. For those not familiar with this story, Kate was rumored to be having an affair with Steve not too long ago.
Picture of her new condo below -
UPDATE – According to RaderOnline, Kate has had a change of heart, and will no longer be moving to Maryland.
Jillian Harris and fiance Ed Swiderski continue to be happy together. The two have been together for 2 months now and continue to go strong. They revealed on the After The Rose show last night that Jillian will be moving in with Ed in Chicago. They also hoped to be married within the next 12 months.
In other news Ed’s dad, Edward Swiderski Jr, confirmed with a local news magazine that Ed still has his job.
Perhaps there might be another marriage on the horizon for the Bachelor(ette) franchise. Jillian wrote her final blog about the show, with Ed chiming in and writing a few choice words as well.
Well … that’s a wrap! I will keep this post short and sweet as I have an eager man waiting for me and wanting to get OUT IN PUBLIC together … FINALLY! I have been waiting for this day since May 24th — the day that I can openly tell you how madly in love I am, how happy I am and how excited I am for the future.
Reid and Kiptyn are both unbelievable men. Some will have opinions of why maybe I should have picked one or the other instead of Ed. Some will see why Ed was perfect for me from the beginning. I embrace ALL of your opinions. I can see why you would all think ALL three of these men would be great for me. For those who want to congratulate my happiness … THANK YOU!!! We are both EXTREMELY happy (still) and truly it gets better and better every day we are together.
As I type this, we are off to our FIRST outing in public, hopefully just wings and beer! I am so excited and so eager to get my normal little life back. Ed and I have spent the summer together (every two weeks for five days at a time) and it truly does keep on getting better and better. We have so much fun together, know one another so well and find ourselves so comfortable with each other. We have learned so much about one another and I am loving every minute of it.
Oh wait — someone’s stealing my computer! (Ed has some words to say as well) -
Ed here! I cannot believe the journey that we have experienced over the last few months. But we are having a blast and could not be happier. I want to thank everyone for their support and cheering us on. Jilly and I have been spending so much time together and have an incredible summer planned. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU … for believing in Jilly and supporting her throughout this. She means the world to me and I promise I will take good care of her. We are ready for a wicked life together!
A new reality show, More To Love will debut on FOX tonight featuring Luke Conley as the leading man in search of love. The 26-yr-old real estate investor and sub-contractor was interviewed by PEOPLE about his participation in the first dating reality show featuring a full figured bachelor and bachelorettes.
The series will show Luke, who is 6?3? tall and weighs more than 300 lbs dating 20 bachelorettes in a quest to find love. Luke doesn’t reveal if he found love but he wants you to tune in and be a part of his journey as he embarks on love.
These are excerpts from the interview:
TV is a notoriously thin place, but there’s been an upswing in pleasantly plump programming. Why do you think that is?
Maybe they have wider angles on their cameras now so they can fit me on. Maybe the trend is heading in that direction because people are just looking for something new and more real.
Were you concerned about being the butt of a nationally televised joke?
I was concerned the main premise of the show was to poke fun. It seemed like everyone had to be talked into it for that same reason. But it’s legitimate. The desire of the show is for two people to make a sincere connection. It just so happens that they’re not size 2 models.
Are you offended by the title?
The title is suiting. I’m a big man so I definitely have more love.
Has weight impacted your love life over the years?
In high school, it caused me to be somewhat bashful. I would find out about girls with crushes on me, but I never knew what to do about it. Bulking up wasn’t something I didn’t have a choice in. I was pursuing a football career. After traveling and in college, I never let it hold me back or stop me from approaching a woman I was interested in.
