In the interviews, the professional gold-digger 32-year-old reality star discusses being in her second trimester (she’s pregnant by beau & NFL Player Kroy Biermann), touches on the engagement rumors she probably leaked herself, speaks on castmate Phaedra Parks and also touches on her upcoming book.
Excerpts from Kim’s interviews below -
Do your daughters get along well with Kroy? Are they excited he’s in the picture?
They are crazy about Kroy. Half the time they go out to dinner and leave me at home, honey. He’s really fantastic with my girls. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner ever.
Have your fellow Housewives reached out?
Well, Kandi knew a long time ago. I told Kandi right around the time I found out. Of course she’s great and excited for me. Sheree has known for a long time, too. She’s cute. She’ll send me text messages [like], “I hope you’re not overdoing it” and “Do you need anything?” I have not spoken to NeNe or Cynthia. Phaedra was really sweet when she found out about it in the press.
Recently there were rumors you were engaged. Do you have anything to share?
No, and I guess they had nothing else to talk about that day. It’s obvious that we’ve been intimate so why would I not want to go and show the world my ring? Do I think I have a future with Kroy? Without a shadow of a doubt. He’s just amazing. I shared baby news. I certainly would be sharing an engagement.
Apart from your music career, you have a book coming out. What’s it about?
I was actually going to do a hair and makeup on a budget book … but I get asked so many times out in public, “Kim, how did you get Big Poppa?” Everybody seems to think that [landing Big Poppa] so revolved around money, and I am like, you know, I really need to let these people know … It will be the farthest thing from giving relationship advice but, technically, I do know at the end of the day what it takes to have a partner that equals you.
Back to the drama on the show: what did you make of Dwight and Phaedra making comments about your nursing qualifications? And what did you think of her pregnancy?
I’ve never hung out with Dwight. I don’t even know him. He just needs to fix his nose and keep it moving. I don’t know why he feels the need to talk about me. As far as Phaedra, I really didn’t care about her pregnancy. I guess what bothers me is she just kind of insulted everybody’s intelligence … Getting into all the comments and things I’ve said about it, [it's like], I want you guys to know I’m not stupid. I had to go through labor and delivery and clinicals when I was in school. And I had two children of my own. It was more or less that, not that I actually cared about the actual situation.
What do you think of Phaedra
I actually really like her, believe it or not. She’s a fantastic mother. She’s actually really funny. She is cool. She’s real cool, actually. I haven’t spent a whole bunch of time with her … but she’s a very nice, sweet person.
In other Kim news, her ex lesbian lover DJ Tracy Young took to her twitter page to lash out at her after finding out Kim was running her name through the mud. Two of Tracy’s tweets about Kim below -
“Talk is cheap @kimzolciak U weren’t calling me a “famed obssesed coat tail rider” when u were riding my tail screaming my name…XO
If you want to know the truth listen to my song, “What’s Done Is Done” @kimzolciak http://bit.ly/ds84JB“
Allrighty then. And finally, the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be on hiatus this coming Sunday. The show will return on January 2. And according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there are three episodes left this season. The finale episode will air Jan. 16, 2011 followed by two reunion shows and a lost footage episode.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW AND DJ TRACY’S TWEETS?
Episode 12 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta brought us spa confrontations, Kim singing, and Nene snagging a huge/astronomical celebrity interview but the best part of Sunday night might have just beenPhaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida’s appearance on WWHL, during which Apollo claimed he was 4 years younger than Phaedra. In this recap, I set the record straight on that while touching on whether or not Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar is broke and in foreclosure. Will also briefly touch which Bravo housewives I strongly dislike. They are now 5 by the way. Would also like to know which housewives you all despise dislike the most. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!
The episode begins with Kandi Burruss(who’s album Kandi Koatedis in stores now – a nice album) rehearsing for her upcoming promo tour, which is a week away. The best part of this rehearsal is when Kim shows up to show Kandi what her performance will look like. Once again, Kim whines, complains before showing off her lazy performance routine to go along with the bad singing. Here’s a tip for Kandi – have her lip sync. Kandi is not too pleased with Kim’s laziness but doesn’t have time to dedicate to Kim as she also has to focus on her own performances. Kandi wants Kim “to pull it together.”

On tonight’s episode, titled ‘Not So Fine Print,’ as Kandi’s tour draws ever closer, she scrambles to finish her CD while trying to get Kim’s opening act in shape. Elsewhere, Cynthia makes moves to reconcile with NeNe, who feels the stress of trying to score a celebrity interview for her local show. Also: Kim’s past jesting at Phaedra’s due date comes back to haunt her, and Cynthia is not happy to discover that Nene told the others about her friend contract.
The new episode airs at 10/9c tonight on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – Joining Andy Cohen in the Bravo guest house tonight will be Phaedra Parksand Apollo Nida. Should be good!
In other Atlanta news, BlackVoices is reporting that professional mistressKim Zolciak is now planning on writing a book. And no, it’s not an instructional on how to be the best gold digger you can be, but rather a book about relationships. Yes, you read that right.
BV reports that Kim, 32, recently signed a deal with Farrah Gray Publishing, considered one of the largest African-American owned book publishing companies in the country. BV adds that Kim’s book will be about relationships and her advice on love and happiness. No words.
TELL US – WOULD YOU TAKE RELATIONSHIP ADVICE FROM KIM? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW CLIP AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
It all started when Cynthia decided to pull her good pal Nene Leakes to the side and clear the air on some of the issues they had been having. Cynthia handed Nene a candle gift and then handed her a friend contract which stated it had to be notarized and signed by the President. The joke was lost of Nene who deemed her a “Single Black Female” and declared the situation as awkward. Nene then met up with on-again off-again friend Kim Zolciak and showed her the contract, leading to a laugh fest with Kim calling Cynthia a crazy stalker.
Below is what Cynthia had to say about the situation in her latest Bravo blog -
NeNe: Single black female. A very FRIENDly thing to say.
So let me get this straight. Last week Peter and NeNe go at it, this week they kiss and make up, and now, all of a sudden, I am SINGLE BLACK FEMALE, who happens to be a lesbian, and is in love with NeNe? I want Nene, NeNe wants Peter, and Peter just wants the Jets to win the Superbowl. Does this even begin to make sense? Crisis!
Where do I start? The FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT. Here we go. At this point on the show, we are all in a bad place, all three of us. Peter with UPTOWN, NeNe with Gregg, and me with the wedding and Peter’s Uptown situation. Everybody is stressed out, and my friendship with NeNe is definitely on the rocks. I have a great sense of humor, so I decided that the next time I ran into NeNe, AS A JOKE, I would give her a FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT. AS A JOKE! As you guys know, the word friend does not carry a lot of weight with this group, so I thought the idea of giving NeNe a contract was hilarious!
I imagined that we would read it, laugh hysterically, grab a glass of wine (as usual), give each other a big hug, and call it a day. NeNe is one of the craziest friends I have, and one of the reasons we talk so much on the phone is because we are both very silly. NeNe has been good for a laugh or two when I really needed one, and I just wanted to return the favor. My FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT was for NeNe’s eyes only, and I never thought for a second anyone else would see it. It was supposed to just be a funny joke between friends, and that would be the end of it. Clearly, it didn’t work out that way. You guys saw the turn of events after we left Kim’s kitchen, and at that point it just got too ridiculous for me to even go there. The only thing that I wanted to make clear (as if it wasn’t obvious in the first place), is that the FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT was a joke, that’s it. That’s all it was ever meant to be. It was supposed to be funny, and I actually thought it was. I really cracked myself up about the whole thing. Well, excuse me for having a sense of humor.
Anyway, for anyone who may be interested in getting a copy of my FRIENDSHIPCONTRACT for any of your friends, just let me know. The cost is $19.99 per contract which includes shipping and handling. If you act now, I’ll even throw in an autographed picture of myself for FREE. Like in my case, even if your FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT blows up in your face, and your friends start calling you a stalker and a lesbian, at least you will still have the autographed picture of me. FRIENDSHIP CONTRACT t-shirts and hats will also be available upon request. Only one per customer, as quantities are limited.

A week after MediaTakeOut first reported that Nene Leakeswas about to become a grandma courtesy of her son Bryson Bryant, RadarOnline is now confirming the story.
According to Radar, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star “flipped-out” after she discovered son Bryson had gotten his girlfriend pregnant. “NeNe threw a ‘real hissy fit’ when she found out and she really laid-into Bryson,” a source close to the family tells Radar.
Nene, 42, and Bryson, 20, have endured a strained relationship following Bryson’s two arrests this year including an arrest for possession of marijuana while visiting an inmate at the Gwinnett County Jail in Atlanta.
“Not only does she hate the idea of becoming a grandmother in her forties, she believes that she will be left picking-up the tab for the baby because her son still lives at home and does not have a steady income. Bryson is still dating the girl, who is a local from Atlanta, but by no means is it a steady and secure relationship,” says a source.
The source adds that “NeNe believes that neither of them is mature enough to be parents but it’s understood that the girl is definitely going to have the baby.”
Nene is now reportedly demanding Bryson’s girlfriend take a paternity test because she’s not convinced the child is actually his.
Following her huge popularity on the 1st season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, fan favorite Nene Leakes saw her popularity take a huge hit when she showed her true colors on the second season. However with her marriage on the rocks in addition to the backlash she received last year, Nene seemed a bit more humbled when the 3rd season of the RHOA began. Fans, I included, started to like Nene again. But I must say after last night’s episode and watching her on WWHL, I am no longer Team Nene but more on this later.
On to the recap. The 11th episode this season begins with Sheree Whitfield paying her hair stylist/BFF Lawrence a visit at the hair salon he works at. We find out Lawrence stayed late to service Sheree’s two toned weave, well because Sheree made certain to let us know. “I am Lawrence’s best and favorite client so I certainly expect him to stay after hours just for me,” she said. The topic of Kim’s lesbian lover DJ Tracy Young is brought up and Lawrence makes a joke as he wonders if Kim’s kids call her “Daddy.” How dare Lawrence make such an inappropriate funny politically incorrect joke? As I hold my head down in shame from laughing, Sheree receives a phone call and learns she has been accepted into the People Store talent agency. For once, Sheree actually seems excited about her acting passion. Nene reads my mind as she states in her interview that Sheree getting an agent isn’t much of a big deal as most agents would accept her because of her “name.” Actually booking paying jobs on the other hand should be an interesting task for She by Sheree.

On the new episode titled ‘Contract Player,’ Phaedra invites Dwight over to meet her new baby boy, but the visit turns into a gossip session to catch her up on all the drama surrounding the wives and Dwight fills Phaedra in on a underhanded comment that Cynthia made about Phaedra’s marriage at a recent party.
And in another gab-sesh across town, NeNe meets Kim for lunch where they dish on a “friend contract” that Cynthia has request NeNe enter into. Kim also rehearses for her looming tour, but she’s seemingly more interested in sculpting her body than refining the show. Elsewhere, Sheree prepares to act in a regional play.
The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – Bravo announced this week that for the first time in the show’s history, WWHL will air for 5 consecutive nights starting tonight. The ratings for the Bravo late night show has only continued to improve as it now averages 1.3 million viewers per episode.
According to Andy Cohen, the 5 nights airing is more of an experiment. “We’re doing great on Sundays and Thursdays, and competing very well against some very established shows,” Andy said. “We’re looking to have a little fun for a week. It’s more of a special holiday stunt, but we’re open to anything.” That is code talk for if the ratings are good, the five nights a week airing might become permanent.
The guests on tonight’s show will be Nene Leakes and Anderson Cooper.
