Quit, fired – semantics, right? Every retired Housewife tells the same old tale of woe that the show was too much drama, the fighting too intense, it wasn't the image they wanted people to have of them. Kim Zolciak is no exception. The woman who made wigs a household name (sorry Raquel Welch!), is spilling the details about why she left Real Housewives of Atlanta mid-filming.
In an exclusive with In Touch Weekly (do they have Andy Cohen's girls on retainer?), Kim tells the magazine that her pregnancy had a lot to do with why she left.
"I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama, I just had to walk," Kim insists. Apparently the stress of her own life, a new marriage, three children, and one on the way coupled with the nonsense of the show pushed her over the edge. "I've taken on so much in the past five years, but this was the final straw. My priority was the child inside me."
Aaahhh… the holidays. So much to be thankful for, so many blessings to count. I don't know about y'all but I'm thankful for reality TV. I mean, what's not to love? I get to appreciate drama without personally getting involved, it makes me feel better about my own life, and I get paid to complain about said drama starters – while drinking wine.
So thanks Andy Cohen, et al for giving me a reason to be thankful. Because without the embarrassing antics of our favorite reality stars I'd be forced to actually focus on my own life. Ew.
Below are our favorite reasons we're thankful for reality TV this Thanksgiving.
Gotta love Brandi Glanville's cut to the chase approach. Since Taylor Armstrong can't stop talking about her "archnemesis" and her alleged slutty behavior, Brandi decided to discuss how she feels about Taylor's behavior.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star sat down with Us Weekly where she shared her perspective on this season and discussed why she does not condone Taylor's relationship with her very-married boyfriend, John Bluher. In the very candid interview, Brandi is upfront and direct but not exactly catty.
First up, Brandi talks about how things got so mixed up in her comment to Yolanda Foster about sleeping with everyone in Beverly Hills. Apparently Yolanda, who's Dutch, doesn't always get American humor, particularly sarcasm.
Brandi reveals that she and Yolanda end up "very close BFFs" throughout the show and she classifies Yolanda as "Team Sanity."
RuPaul is not giving us an opportunity to miss her luscious ladies. The cast of RuPaul's Drag Race season 5 has just been announced, welcoming to the main stage 14 girls campaigning to be America's next drag superstar.
Last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills we were treated to a feast of crazy. Newbie Yolanda Foster tells us her biggest problem in life is having too many lemons about her house (she has an orchard of lemon trees), and after last night's dinner party I think that very well may be the case. Sometimes friendships go sour, and sometimes sour grapes ruin a friendship before it even begins.
Things begin with Kim Richards getting her youngest daughter Kimberly ready for prom. Kim is breathless with anxiety and is taking out her stress by molesting a vat of chicken salad for 100 while Kimberly gets her hair done. Kim comes out with this bowl that weighs as much as she does and sets it down in the middle of some banquet feast saying she just wants everything to be perfect.
It was literally the chicken salad that ate Kim Richards and she was running her fingers through it, caressing it, just praying on this chicken mess that everything would go perfectly.
Kimberly's boyfriend shows up and he's 20 to her 16. What?! Maybe they should stay home and eat chicken salad. How exactly did this man meet this teenager and who exactly is condoning this? Well, besides Bravo and Kim, obviously. I'll try not to judge… I have to say I cannot get over how gorgeous Kimberly is and how much she looks like a young Kim.
Well, Happy Thanksgiving Kim Zolciak! And I warn you dear readers in advance – this a motherload of a post filled with information.
Unfortunately for poor Kim she is in a massive feud with her parents with multiple media reports (and twitter!) getting involved. If you recall, Kim's parents are fighting her for visitation of her two daughters Brielle, 15, and Arianna, 11, under "grandparents' rights."
After Kim's daughters told the judge presiding over the case that they had no interest in a relationship with their grandparents and the Real Housewives of Atlanta star said her mom was "unfit" and "disrespectful" among other things, Kim's father, Joe, released a statement calling her a "pathological liar" to TMZ.
Kim's attorney responded to Joe's comments writing: Kim is "heartbroken and saddened by the derogatory and spiteful statements made by her mother and father, Karen and Joe Zolciak."
"[Kim] cannot comprehend for what rational purpose her parents have decided to humiliate their grandchildren's mother in such a public display of hatred and fabrications."
If you recall, shortly after Brandi high-tailed it out of there fearing the crazy would be unleashed, Taylor started loose-lipping salacious gossip about Brandi to anyone that would listen. Taking to her Bravo blog, Brandi says she's pretty sure Taylor's behavior was spurned by drunkeness – and she was prepared!
"When Taylor arrived seemingly drunk to a four years birthday party I had a good idea that s— was gonna go down. So after hearing some of the things she was starting to talk about and also seeing her passive aggressively ignore me as she spoke to both of people sitting on either side of me, I decided to get gone," Brandirecalls.
Awwww… apparently all is hunky dory with the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County. I'm sure that has absolutely nothing to do with filming for season 8 happening, does it?
This weekend Tamra Barney (who may or may not be getting married to Eddie Judge on the show) headed to Puerto Vallarta for her bachelorette party weekend!
Surprisingly, attending the festivities was former BFF, turned season-7-nemesis, Vicki Gunvalson. The girls who are also business partners courtesy of Wines by Wives seemed to have patched things up. I wonder if that has something to do with Vicki reportedly ending things with serial-scammer and lover of all things Hallmark, Brooks Ayers?
