Kim Zolciak has been playing coy about the sex of her new baby, saying she wasn’t sure if she was going to tell the public. Well, apparently that was code for… until she got paid for an exclusive!
The Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding star just announced that she and husband Kroy Biermann will be welcoming a second baby boy into the world this August and they could not be more excited. Pretty soon they’ll have a whole football team! “Kroy and I are so excited,” Kim shared with Life & Style. “To decide we wanted to get pregnant again and have it happen so quickly was such a blessing.”
“We didn’t care if it was a girl or a boy, we just want a healthy baby,” Kim added. “We’ll save money since we already have all this boy stuff.”
Also excited, Kim’s two daughters Brielle and Ariana. “They are so excited,” Kim says. “Two boys and two girls; it’s just a blessing — perfect!” I guess Kim’s uncannily reliable psychic Rose got it wrong this time!
Congratulations Kim and Kroy! Best of luck with the newest addition to your family!
A few months ago we were all shocked to learn that not only was Vicki Gunvalson‘s totally down to earth (and surprisingly sane) daughter Briana Wolfsmith engaged, but that she had eloped in Vegas! Tonight Vicki will learn of Briana’s impromptu marriage to Ryan Culberson. For those of you (like myself) wondering if Briana eloped to avoid having her mama micromanage every detail of her wedding; apparently that wasn’t the reason!
Ryan and Briana will be renewing their vows in a lavish wedding ceremony this month – and guess who was on hand to obsess about every detail? Vicki, of course! Star Magazine spoke to Briana about the ceremony and how everything is going now that she’s a Mrs.
Briana and Ryan will be exchanging vows in Santa Barbara on a cliff overlooking the ocean in an late afternoon ceremony, followed by sunset cocktails and an evening reception. “We’re having a live band to kick off the evening’s festivities,” Briana adds.
It took Vicki and Briana six months to plan the ceremony, which Briana describes as intimate. “It’s kind of small. We’re only inviting 75 to 100 people… mostly family and very close friends.” I guess that means Bravo did not receive an invite. I hope! “The only issue I have is that we are over budget,” Vicki reveals. “We are at about $47,000, but who’s counting?”
“We spent a little bit more on food and the venue, which we think is so important. We spent money where it counts.” Well $47,000 is nothing compared to Pandora Todd and Kim Zolciak‘s seven-figure affairs!
Rumors abound have stated the producers are not happy with Jenn’s decision and even going so far as to accuse her of filing suit for publicity or to secure a spot on next season’s cast. Well now TMZ is reporting that producers are so furious they may just file a suit against Jenn in return. Isn’t this blackmail of sorts?
Their reason? Jenn is violating her contract by bashing the show publicly! According to sources, Jenn’s contract forbids her from doing media appearances or press without the network’s approval. And the Basketball Wives contract stipulates cast members must not speak negatively about the show. Due to Jenn’s media tirade against the race track incident, the big-wigs feel Jenn’s behavior is “ruining the brand.” Uh… seriously? Really? Wow…

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After the team continued their Mexican adventure which coincided with Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppycontinuing their marital meltdown, but strangely they seem to be making some small strides and at least they are communicating. Somewhat. Maggie, Bethenny’s beleaguered intern quit and then there were three Skinnygirlians.
Team Frankel is still in Mexico, but things are in a much happier mood than last week. Bethenny and the girls, plus Jason, start out with breakfast and a little trip to the beach vendor. Bethenny is a little steamed that she thinks she got ripped off by the sarong vendor and wants to go for round two to haggle for a better price. She runs into a jewelery vendor instead and falls in love with a fantastic necklace that she really wants. He won’t come down on the price, so she throws the less emotionally invested Jason into the mix. Jason has no luck either and Bethenny promises to run into “hermano” again and make the necklace hers.
Later Bethenny does find Hermano and is able to negotiate a deal to get Julie and Jackie some jewelery and score the necklace. Hey – she’s rich! Jewelery for all!
Good Lord, I feel like we should rename this website Real Housewives of New Jersey Tea. I mean it’s no one’s fault, the peeps of Bravo’s craziest reality show are just that – crazy! And filled with drama – on screen and off!
Teresa Giudice recently appeared on the cover of In Touch Weeklyapologizing to her co-stars for her actions over the last two seasons. Some of her co-stars were unwilling to accept said apologies, citing Teresa makes money from the magazines and therefore it wasn’t in earnest!
Well, The Huffington Post is now revealing that Teresa definitely received a paycheck from her public apology. An editor for In Touch confirmed Teresa was compensated for the notes.

Well, the drama surrounding Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian continues as everybody wants to know will they continue with reality television? Yesterday it was reported that the couple had decided not to film another season of their reality show Khloe & Lamar, citing Lamar’s desire to focus on basketball. Khloe’s rep denied the rumors, but she was probably ordered by Kris Jenner to put the kibosh on the speculation whilst she tried to convince the couple to continue. Afterall, marital meltdowns and professional instability equals ratings gold!
RadarOnline is reporting that it was totally Lamar’s idea to quit the show and now he is feuding with his over-bearing pimpmomager-in-law! “The idea to pull the plug on the show was all Lamar’s. He felt that it was becoming a distraction and Khloé fully supported her husband,” a family insider reveals, adding that Lamar’s family stressors, Khloe’s fertility issues, and his basketball career were the major reasons.
Everything seems to be coming up roses in Kim Zolciak‘s world. She’s married, she’s having a baby, and Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding wasn’t a complete flop – even if people only watched out of morbid curiosity.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kim’s new spin-off premiered to some pretty solid ratings. The two half-hour long series openers garnered about 1.55 million viewers! Not bad for a new show!
And since everything else is perfect in Kimlandia, it’s time to fix her fallen friendship with NeNe Leakes – which seems to be fragmented beyond repair. Much to my and Andy Cohen‘s chagrin.
Kim recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where she confirmed – Real Housewives of Atlanta or no – she is not interested in rekindling things with The Neen. “She’s really changed, and she’s not funny to me anywhere,” Kim shared. “She used to be really funny.” Funnier when she was a moose or when she had a penis? Wendy agreed, saying NeNe has become “mean-spirited.”
