Can we say PUBLICITY STUNT?! Of course, but who cares because the last time I actually liked watching Kim Zolciak on TV she was friends with NeNe Leakes.
After 3 seasons of fighting and one awkward run-in, the Real Housewives of Atlanta friendship that spawned the greatest one-liner in HW history, "Close your legs to married men, trashbox!" is possibly, tepidly, resuming. At least on TV! You know NeNe is chasing that Bravo paid-for wedding.
Kim announced on twitter last night that she and NeNe had spoken. Just in time to start promoting her spinoff Don't Be Tardy which starts in two weeks.
The promo video was just released and we have your first glimpse. Unfortunately, it doesn't show any previews of the crazy goodness that is rumored to go down, but it's still worth a peek. Andy Cohen is featured in the clip, narrating as he heads to the undisclosed location where they filmed the reunion. He's reminiscing and wondering how the reunion will go and makes some funny references to a few of the most infamous Housewives shenanigans. (stripper pasts, gone with the wind twirls, and more).
Take a look and tell us – are you looking forward to the reunion? Do you think 3 parts will be enough?

Kim Zolciak-Biermann isn't going to let a silly law suit get her down when she's building her dream house with husband Kroy. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been sharing pictures of the work in progress on her Instagram. Apparently there is a lot of hard work that goes into touring a home you're having someone else build and design. Although, I'm sure Kim will add contractor to her resume, just like she's likely added songwriter and wig maker. WIG!
Kim recently tweeted, "Building is no joke! So Time consuming and if I wasn't such a perfectionist it would go a hell of a lot quicker! Lol"
Later, Kim shared with her followers, "Just sold one of our houses!!! Yahoo less to deal with!" Well, that IS good news. How many houses does she have? I find this announcement to be a tad suspect, but hey, more power to her! Check out pictures of Kim touring her new manse after the jump and weigh in with what you think in the comments section!

Kim has been doing nothing but talking – and trashing Kandi – to the media, on twitter, and with really badly written and poorly editedPR statements. Now Kandi, represented by fellow Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, is explaining what led to the lawsuit. And as predicted Kandi is saving most of her comments for their day in court!
"It’s time for the whole ordeal to be over. I asked TuneCore to take the song down in December 2012. They did. Kim sent an affidavit to put it back up, which they did," Kandi reveals in her statement. "TuneCore then informed me that in order for the song to be taken down permanently I would need to file suit to have it removed."
Kandi and co-plaintiff Rodney Richard (aka Don Vito), who is the co-writer and co-producer, are suing TuneCore along with Kim!
A week after Kandi Burrussfiled a lawsuit against Kim in federal court over royalties, non-payment, and rights to use the song 'Tardy For The Party,' Kim continues to desperately exonerate herself by slamming Kandi in the media and on twitter. Among other things, Kim has called Kandi a famewhore seeking publicity and a liar. Kandi has not commented.
Going one step further, the Don't Be Tardy star put out an official press release giving her perspective on the lawsuit. It is of no surprise that Kim takes no responsibility and accuses Kandi of lies and negligence. Furthermore this is the most professional (ha!) press release ever. Is Brielle not only Kim's songwriter but her PR rep too?
"The lawsuit led by Kandi Burruss and Rodney Richard aka Don Vito against Kim Zolciak-Biermann over the song 'Tardy For The Party' is without merit and suspicious in its timing," Kim's official statement begins.
Apparently Phaedra is even busier than we imagined! Currently pregnant with her second son, Phaedra is working on a book, her mortuary science degree, a possible spinoff, and is still active in her legal practice. Oh – and she's planning to return to for another season of RHOA! Dang lady, sit. down. Some excerpts are below!
On being portrayed accurately on RHOA, of which she has a remarkably relaxed attitude:
"What you have to realize is that it is television. Television is a medium for entertainment, it’s not a documentary, it’s for entertainment and I think you are definitely entertained," Phaedrashares with Complex.
"It’s an ensemble cast so you’ve got six or seven of us and you’re seeing a limited amount of our time. The show breaks everything down into 10 or 15 minute segments so of course it can’t catch every facet of a person's personality but it is what it is."
