Following her super mega iTunes hit, “Don’t Be Tardy For The Party,” Kim Zolciak continues her attempt to prove she’s not a one hit wonder!
While her second single ‘Google Me‘ didn’t quite catch on last year, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is now trying her luck with country music!
Yes, Kim, 33, has released a snippet of her new country single ‘Love Me First‘ today which was produced by Patrick GuiTarBoy and Jazze Pha. The song will be available on iTunes in a couple of weeks.
“My new song is so emotional….the lyrics we wrote r abt my life & so true!!! Its called “Love Me First” tweeted Kim, later adding that the song is “amazing.”
Err, I’ll let you be the judge of that. The snippet of the song is below, via Too Fab. I’ll just add, there was no autotune used on Kim’s voice in this song. I repeat, the song has no autotune. You’ve been warned!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KIM’S NEW COUNTRY SINGLE? IS IT HER WORST BEST YET?
Kelly Bensimon is back to doing what she does best – acting crazy in a bikini!
Kelly recently vacationed in South Beach, where she donned a string bikini and frightened beach goers and photographers alike, but that didn’t stop her from flaunting it as an advertisement for her new book, I Can Make You Hot. Is there a chapter dedicated to obtaining the perfect leathered skin? I kid, I kid – Kelly is in great shape.
Kelly promises the book has nothing to do with Real Houswives of New York, from which she was famously fired, and it won’t include any gossip from the show. Which, pretty much means I won’t be reading it! Instead Kelly’s newest tome will focus on something else she does well – making mistakes! The book is all about her past oops moments and what she’s learned from the experiences.
I imagine it goes a little something like this: Chapter One. It was a mistake to join a reality show knowing I’m insane. It was an even bigger mistake to not suck up to Bethenny Frankel like everyone else did. It was the biggest mistake ever to get into an argument about processed foods while eating gummy bears. Even worse I had a huge screaming meltdown over dinner when I started hallucinating about Al Sharpton. That’s the last time I’ll eat those dried mushrooms I got at the farmers market, trying to prove I don’t do refined sugars! I should have known that it was a bad idea when the guy selling them charged me $50 and told me I’d get a ‘real sugar high’. Danggit! Do you think people hate me?
Anyways, Kelly is excited to share her mess ups with you and tell you what an amazing experience it was. “It’s been really fun writing about all these mistakes I’ve made over the years. Everyone thinks they should write about how great they are, and I always think it’s more charming to learn about all the mistakes that I made and maybe you can learn from them, too,” Kelly told CeleBuzz.
Kelly’s advice book hits stores in April. Pre-order now! Even more exciting – more photos of Kelly running around in a string bikini. Photos below!

Last night’s Mob Wives was more about tricks than treats, with the women divided between two, that’s right, TWO competing Halloween parties. The horror!
Drita D’avanzo and Carla Facciolo are taking their kids to pick out some pumpkins for Drita’s upcoming Halloween party. Carla thinks it is going to be a fun, drama-free party based on the guest list. Both hope that Renee Graziano will attend, and for a little while she’ll be able to enjoy herself and shake off the funk of Junior going back to jail. Carla and Drita are worried about Renee and all the stress she unnecessarily takes on in her life.
Ramona Rizzo is dining with her friend Lina, who has known her since before she married her now ex-husband. She reveals that she got disowned by her father because she didn’t marry an FBI—full-blooded Italian. Ramona’s first husband was Arabic, and she was hoping that because he was from a different culture, she would be so far removed from the criminal lifestyle. She was wrong about her husband, just like she was wrong about her current boyfriend.

Remember Real Housewives Of Miami? Of course you do – it was that show that wasn’t actually a Housewives show, but got put on the air when Andy Cohen realized when the fourth season of Real Housewives Of New York City wasn’t doing well, it was better to just put some new, unknown show on the air. While ratings for the season weren’t great and internet interest was not very high, the live reunion caused a stir and ended up reviving the show from the dead.
Currently, the cast is filming in Miami a second season and making a public spectacle of themselves. Having dropped basketball wives Cristy Rice and Larsa Pippen, the show has added model and Dancing With The Stars vet, Joanna Krupa, who lives in the area with her husband, club owner Romain Zago. In an interesting twist of fate, Romain, apparently, once refused to even entertain the idea of Jersey Shore filming in his precious nightclub, Mynt, when the producers for that show were scouting possible Miami locations.
It looks like Romain got over his attitude about reality shows infecting the air of his club; last week the Housewives crew was spotted not only filming there, but they caught Joanna and Romain in the middle of some drama.
An insider reveals to the Miami Herald that Joanna got into a tiff with the DJ spinning that night; “While miked last night, Joanna Krupa stood in front of the DJ’s booth, flipping him birds and cursing him out. Apparently the DJ had a rough break-up last year with Joanna’s sister. Romain ripped off his mic and stormed outside to try to cool off.”
However, don’t get your hopes up. Joanna may have been putting on an act for her new Bravo paycheck. The source also says there was some staging at Roman’s club behind the scenes, revealing “Apparently, they had a ‘staged’ employee meeting so that all can see how big a happy family they all are. Everybody who works there was of course rolling their eyes over the hypocrisy. Apparently even the silent investors made it in, which they never do, [but did it] just for the ruse.”
If the staging rumor is true, let’s hope everyone involved in this show has gotten some acting lessons.
Further confirming that Joanna is indeed a part of the cast, Marysol Pattonis pictured above with her alongside her sister Marta Krupa on March 2 during the Opening Night Gala for the World Premiere of “Mariachi Gringo” in Miami.

TELL US — ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MIAMI’S SECOND SEASON?
The ladies of Basketball Wives simply cannot go anywhere without their drama. You might even say they carry it along with them in their purses. Apparently, during a cast trip to Tahiti last month (why are reality show casts always on trips, like they can’t create enough trouble at home?) Tami Roman and newbie Kesha Nichols got into quite the altercation!
We all know Tami does not mince words and mid-way through the trip she apparently called Kesha out on talking behind the girls’ backs. According to TMZ, the two got into an argument and Kesha fearing for her life stormed out! Unfortunately, she left her designer bag behind! Tami decided to hold onto the bag in the hopes that when Kesha came back to retrieve it, they could continue their friendly little chat!
Sadly for Tami, things didn’t go as planned. When Kesha learned Tami had the bag in her room, she realized it was not safe for her to go in there alone and got hotel security involved! Hotel security (presumably also afraid) wanted to call the police over the “theft.” I’m thinking Meeka Claxton gave these people a call and told them what happened in Italy last year!
Producers intervened and convinced Tami to return the bag and Kesha reportedly hopped on the next plane back to the US!
Moving on, Evelyn Lozada still expects us to believe this wedding to Chad Ochocinco is happening. Evelyn insists she’s not a Bridezilla–yet–she just wants everything to be perfect! “It’s Florida in Palm Beach in July and I’m currently busy planning. I don’t have my dress but I have a potential designer,” she dishes.
They are planning to invite about 250 guests and the list has been a “challenge” for Evelyn. “I initially wanted something smaller, but Chad is a big personality and if I leave it up to him he will have animals running around.”
Included in the list, are her castmates, except for one person. Of course, Evelyn can’t get through an interview without mentioning her former bestie Jennifer Williams!
“Jennifer is definitely not invited, it really wouldn’t make sense as she really wasn’t supportive of my relationship from day one,” Evelyn shared with RadarOnline. “I want people who are really, truly happy for us. She never really cared.”
While rekindling things with Jen is not a possibility, starring in an Evelyn and Ocho reality show is! Ugh. “If it works out for the both of us we would do it on TV, there is some interest but nothing is set in stone yet,” Evelyn explained. “The Patriots would let him do that because he wouldn’t be playing then as it would be out of season, coach Bill Belichick is very strict during the season but he wouldn’t be opposed because it’s the off-season.”
“We would probably do a few episodes running up to the wedding and air it outside of Basketball Wives.” Anything for fame these two!
And speaking of The Patriots, Evelyn confesses that Chad took his Superbowl loss pretty hard and the family spent the evening consoling him! “The kids were so torn, it was hard. They wanted to see their dad win so badly,” Evelyn reveals. “After that we literally went to the team hotel and went to the MacDonald’s drive thru and we all sat in the car and spent time with him, and that was our night.” That’s actually pretty sweet.
Finally, Evelyn has been kicking it old school and posting photos of herself back in the day on her website. “It’s Throwback Thursday and I wanted to share a picture of me and my Princess Shaniece. She makes my heart melt! #LoveBeingAMommy,” Evelyn wrote. Also getting into the spirit was Evelyn’s daughter Shaniece, who put some photos of her parents at the hospital when she was born. Very sweet. “Mommy & Daddy #1993,” she captioned the photo. You can see the photos below!

PEOPLE doesn’t reveal when or how Snooki, 24, and Jionni got engaged, though Snooki seemed to be dropping hints when she spoke to the mag earlier this year. “I know he’s the one so I know the ring’s gonna come soon,” Snooki told PEOPLE on Jan. 12.
Moving on to Snooki’s douchebag ex Emilio Masella, who simply refuses to leave the public eye since his very brief relationship with the MTV reality star back in 2010.
The latest is a new interview he gave to TMZ, in which, he reveals he’s hoping Snooki will miscarry. Wowzers.
“I hope for her sake … not to be rude or anything … but I hope she has a miscarriage,” said Emilio.
Emilio adds that while he believes Snooki will be a good mother… eventually, he doesn’t think she’s ready for babies at the moment. “When I was with her, she said she wanted twins,” he reveals. “She would always say ‘Let’s have twins.’”
It gets even better, Emilio goes on to claim Snooki’s beau Jionni might not be the father of her baby, but rather one of her costars. “I would def recommend her to get a pregnancy test to see who the father is because I’m sure there are other subjects,” he says. “Vinny could easily be the father.” Must say, Emilio might want to think twice before wishing the next person a miscarriage, as that thing called karma is very real.
As reported last week, Snooki has inked a deal with UsWeekly to share her pregnancy bombshell and now likely her engagement news as well.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI BEING PREGNANT AND ENGAGED? EMILIO’S COMMENTS – OUT OF LINE OR WAY OUT OF LINE?
The ladies of the Real Housewives of Atlanta return tonight, after taking Sunday off, last week. Of course, even after taking a short break, there is no break in the women discussing the recent drama on that never-ending trip to the Dark Continent.
Marlo tells the site, “I don’t think of her as a friend either. The only reason we communicate is because of NeNe [Leakes]. We don’t have anything in common except we’re both tall and pretty.” And they both have some healthy self-esteem, I’ll bet. Marlo, who describes the pair as “cordial,” admits she was disappointed that Cynthia joined the smalls in gossip, while the castmates were vacationing in South Africa.
“It did shock me that she was talking to them about me,” Marlo reveals. “When we were in Africa together, we did get along. We did talk.”
As viewers recall, Cynthia changed her tune about Marlo when the Neenster joined the group for lunch. Marlo continues, “When NeNe came back around, it was, ‘Oh, I love Marlo.’ She’s a little two-faced here.”
Marlo also discusses her role on the show, saying she knew from the start she wouldn’t be joining the cast as a main housewife. Marlo isn’t even married…although, let’s be honest, being an actual housewife has never been a prerequisite to starring in the franchise. Marlo says, “I knew I wasn’t going to be a housewife..I knew what my position was in the beginning.”
However, rumors are swirling that Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak will be getting her own Bethenny Frankel-style Bravo spin-off, leaving a vacancy in the cast. Marlo isn’t automatically assuming that she will fill that void, stating, “I gotta wait and see what God has planned.”
Also getting her own show is Kandi Burruss, whose show The Kandi Factory airs tonight at 10PM ET on Bravo. In an interview with DetroitNews.com, Kandi discusses her Bravo spinoff and her anger over Sheree’s two-faced actions in Africa!
First, Kandi explains why she decided to take a leap with her own show. “I don’t want people to get confused,” Kandi states. “I’m not a reality star, I’m a business and entertainment mogul who happens to be on a reality show. ‘The Kandi Factory’ will allow me to show peole what I really do. I love helping people and I love making hits.”
And when it comes to her drama with Sheree, Kandi reveals: “I was irritated when I watched the whole thing again.” She, however, adds that she and Sheree are still friends. “I’m not the kind of person who holds grudges,” Kandi says. “I was mad at Sheree for what she did but that’s not enough reason to cut her off and not be her friend.”
Moving on to Kim Zolciak, as things continue to go well for her and her new husband, Atlanta Falcon’s defensive end Kroy Biermann. The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s online edition is reporting that the NFL player will likely sign a lucrative contract extension. Yesterday, an insider close to the negotiations stated that the re-signing was “imminent” and would likely happen within the next thirty-six hours.
Kroy was a fifth-round draft pick in 2008, and the source claims he wants to negotiate a three-year contract. The Falcons, however, would like to lock in his contract for up to four years. The good news for Kim Kroy, is that the deal will be worth between $10-12 million. That’s a lot of wigs!
Meanwhile, NeNe and Cynthia hosted a party in North Carolina this weekend, along with rapper TI. Baksetball Wives star Tami Roman was also in attendance. Photos from that event are below!
On tonight’s episode, the women pack up to head back to Atlanta. Well, all except for Marlo, who lounges, while her poor South African housekeeper painstakingly follows her every command regarding shoebags, carry-ons, and designer name dropping. Kandi and Cynthia discuss tension with Sheree. Phaedra, Sheree, and Cynthia take away life lessons from the vacation, while NeNe believes they will be returning to Atlanta as two separate groups yet again, the talls and the smalls.
Back in the states, Kim is worn out taking care of her two daughters and a newborn. While she has two housekeepers, she is in desperate need of a nanny. Kim gets mad beyond words when she finds Sweetie and Brielle lounging by the pool. Who does Sweetie think she is? She doesn’t need a tan! Kim shouldn’t be charged with going through all of these resumes herself! Additionally, on the NeNe front, Bryson gets arrested, again. Shocking, I know. A new episode airs tonight at 9PM ET. Watch a preview clip below!

Poor Kimmie Kakes. According to a new report, Reggie Bushisn’t the only famous man who wants nothing to do with her, after dumping her again recently, for the umpteenth time, apparently other athletes/singers/rappers/actors are also shying away!
If you’ve been keeping up with Kim Kardashian’s drama, you know she and her pimpmomager Kris Jennerare hell-bent on finding her another famous dummy to trick into marrying her! Life & Style reports that after divorcing Kris Humphries, and getting her heart-broken again by Reggie, Kim now fears she’ll be single forever. “She’s like, ‘No one will date me!'” says a close friend.
And she might just be right! According to the friend, guys no longer want anything to do with Kimmie Kakes due to their fear of getting “Humphried.” Yes that is now a verb. “The Kris situation was so ugly – guys are now worried they’ll get Humphried!”, reveals the source. In fact, sources say that Kim was indeed trying to get hooked up with NBA star Jeremy Lin, but he and his people quickly put the kibosh on that plan! Ouch.
On top of being dateless, Kim’s family is STILL upset with her for bringing them down with the divorce backlash, and her relationship with her sisters remains strained. “Her family is concerned they’re going to sink along with Kim,” admits an insider. Going to? Seems like they already have.
However, the latest issue of Star magazine is reporting that Kim, 31, is not giving up on love just yet. So where does a famewhore reality star go to find love after being deemed undateable in her own country? If you guessed Saudi Arabia, you guessed right!
Yes, in a story that doesn’t at all seem planted by pimpmomager Kris to deflect from Kim being dumped by Reggie, Star is reporting that following her latest humiliation at the hands of Reggie, who was pictured with a new girl just two weeks ago, Kim is now trying to move on with a Saudi Arabian prince, who also happens to be a billionaire. Even better, Kim met this prince during her trip to Dubai last October, you know, while she was still married to that poor schmuck Kris H.!
“Kim is over dating singers like Ray J and athletes like Kris and is setting her sights much higher,” Kris Jenner An “insider” reveals. ” And by, she’s over dating singers and athletes, the insider means, they’re over dating her! “She’s determined to marry royalty,” adds the source.
While in Dubai last year, several royals reportedly gave Kim their phone numbers, I’m guessing they wanted to know her rate for the night, with the insider adding: “The one she really had a connection with is a billionaire.”
Kim and her billionaire prince have been reportedly keeping in touch over the phone with Kim now planning a trip back to the Middle East. While Kim will claim her trip is to expand her business in the region, insiders insist she’s really heading there for a rendezvous at a palace with the Prince.
As for Kim, she did an interview this week with Extra while shooting her guest spot for Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, in Atlanta. In the interview, Kim, of course claimed she is single and not looking to mingle. Riiight.
“I’m not dating right now. I don’t really care to,” claims Kim. “Obviously, I’ve learned that I rush into things when I fall in love and get excited. So maybe I should chill out for a little bit.” Kim’s comments are hard to believe, as she was telling the media the same thing back in 2010, while she was secretly having those close to her hand out her number to Kris Humphries and every other professional athlete on the planet. Kris was unfortunately dumb enough to take the bait.
Moving on to Khloe Kardashian’s hubbyLamar Odom, who we reported yesterday got demoted by his NBA team to go play for the D-league aka the Developmental League.
The good news for Lamar? ESPN just reported moments ago that the Dallas Mavericks have called him back to the team, ending his very short stint with the Texas Legends. A source tells the site the team had a change of heart because they “need” Lamar now following their latest loss.
So, why did the Mavs send Lamar to the D-league in the first place? The official word from the team is that they wanted him to get his legs better but sources tell ESPN the Mavs and Lamar’s teammates are very unhappy with him. In fact, his coach Rick Carlisle and teammate Jason Kidd have publicly criticized him this week. “Our fans want to know that Lamar’s in. Our players want to know that Lamar’s in. It’s not about how many points he’s scoring or rebounds; those things are a factor. Our fans, our players want to see the guy playing like his pants are on fire and we haven’t seen that so far and that’s got to change,” said coach Carlisle during his weekly radio show on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Galloway & Co.”
Jason, on the other hand, made it clear that Lamar’s inconsistent effort and extended absence were a major concern. “Trust factor is always big,” Jason told ESPNDallas.com. “For that, he’s going to have to earn it with a lot of the guys. But we all give second chances, third chances. For that, we just want him to be him and be comfortable and play.”
In addition to his bad game play–he’s having the worst season of his career–Lamar’s team reportedly became fed up with him after he took more than a week off to deal with a personal family matter. While Lamar told his team last week that he needed time off to go be with his dad, a media report came out stating his father was deathly ill. That report, however, ended up being false as Lamar’s father appeared publicly days later in good health stating he only suffered a minor stomach issue. And folks, let’s just say the NBA doesn’t give you time off because your daddy has a tummy ache.
So now the Mavs, who were already disappointed in Lamar’s game play this season, felt that taking time off was the final straw, hence sending him to the D-league to send him a message.
However, the rumor now is that Lamar didn’t really take time off to be with his dad but rather his wife Khloe. An unconfirmed rumor, which we hope is not true, is that Khloe might have suffered a miscarriage and Lamar was using his dad’s minor illness as a cover up. In fact, the above photo of Khloe was taken in late December which led to some speculation that she was sporting a baby bump. Other sources are also saying that Lamar has been quite depressed since being traded from the Lakers last December, and that his heart doesn’t seem to be in the game anymore. Yikes.
Whatever the case is, Lamar will be back with his team starting today.
In the creepy photo shot, Kendall and Kyle posed as the twins from ‘The Shining’ for a Toddlers & Tiaras-inspired challenge for an upcoming episode of the series. Those photos are below! The trio will appear as guest judges on ANTM on Wednesday, March 7.
