“Kroy and I are so excited,” Kim, 33, states. “To decide we wanted to get pregnant again and have it happen so quickly was such a blessing.”
Even more surprising, is how Kim, who is four months along, managed to keep this a secret. “People are going to be shocked, because nobody knows,” says Kim, who reveals she has yet to find out the sex of the baby. “I’m so excited that KJ will have a little buddy,” she adds.
Well, if we’re going by the prediction of Kim’s psychic, Rose, it’s safe to assume Kim will be having a girl! Rose not only predicted she would have a son, before she even met Kroy, but during another visit with Kim this season, she predicted Kim would be having another little girl.
Kim and Kroy tied the knot last November, months after welcoming their first child, son Kroy Jagger (KJ) Jr., in May. Kim has two daughters–Brielle, 15, and Ariana, 9–from a previous marriage and relationship.
Even better for the Biermanns, Kroy, 26, recently signed a $10 million contract renewal with his NFL team, the Atlanta Falcons. You can read more about Kim’s pregnancy in the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, out on newsstands tomorrow.
Bravo announced last week that Kim and Kroy’s spinoff series, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, will premiere April 26 at 9 p.m.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KIM’S PREGNANCY? SURPRISED SHE WAS ABLE TO KEEP IT A SECRET FOR FOUR MONTHS?
UPDATE – Star Magazine is reporting that Kim is expecting a baby boy! “They’re so excited because Kim already had two girls and now that she’s having a second son, the family will be balanced out with two of each,” a source tells the mag.
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe couldn’t go through with finalizing her divorce and Cynthia divorced her sister by asking her to stay out of her marriage. Kim and Kandi made amends and Kandi successfully wrote a country song with artist Jo Dee Messina. Sheree learned that Tierra‘s boyfriend is planning to propose – and has already asked Bob for his consent!
Things start out at Cynthia‘s house. Peter and Cynthia are both upset about Mal‘s behavior at their anniversary party. Cynthia decides she is done with their fighting, to which Peter claims, he has no issues with Mal he just doesn’t want to deal with her.
Moving on, Kim and Kandi get together for a heart to heart at her new rent-a-mcmansion. Kim acts as if she is lady of the manor, but she’s really hoochie on the hill. I did like her red striped sofa. Kandi and Kim discuss how their friendship got so off track, and it basically is because of a little track known as, Tardy For The Party. They agree business and friendship don’t mix and I notice Kim never apologized for stealing Kandi’s money!

The press release reads: “The pressure is on as she rushes to find a dress, lose remaining baby weight and cosmetically enhance trouble spots. With the date quickly approaching, problems mount- her invitation is leaked to the press and her mother refuses to attend the wedding. Still, Kim is determined to marry Kroy and won’t let anything ruin her perfect day. Don’t be tardy for this party as Kim refuses to give up on happily ever after.”
The show premieres with double episodes on Thursday, April 26, at 9pm and 9:30pm et/pt. A preview clip is below!
Moving on to other news, Kim, 33, is now finally revealing the real reason she fired her long suffering assistant, Sweetie Hughes.
In her latest blog for Bravo, Kim writes: “Sweetie began to become a bit lazy, she didn’t seem like herself anymore, and it worried me. The last thing I want is for our relationship to be ruined because of my role as her boss. Because of those feelings, I had to let Sweetie go.”
Kim, who states she’s known Sweetie for over 12 years and considers her a part of her family, adds, “That decision was best for the both of us, because now she’s just my girlfriend. No obligations, not stress. I’d much rather let Sweetie go and keep her as a friend, than keep her and jeopardize one of the most important relationships I have! Assistants come and go but you can’t buy loyalty.”
Kim didn’t end there; she also explained why she did not attend Cynthia Bailey’s anniversary party. Kim blogged, “As far as Cynthia’s one year anniversary party, I absolutely was not attending. First off, Peter acted like a total ass at my baby shower, and second I wasn’t about to attend an event for someone who implied I am racist (saying I would never hold a “black baby”). ”
She continues, “It’s amazing to me how upset Cynthia has been about my comment last year that Peter and Cynthia won’t last a year when her own family thinks that! I am happy for Cynthia and hope her marriage lasts forever, but I am entitled to my own opinion and had absolutely no desire to attend her event.”
Finally, Kim also took to her Twitter page this week to post a picture of herself with no make-up on! That pic is below.
And speaking of tweet pics, NeNe Leakes and Kim Kardashian met up again this week in Atlanta to do a photo-op dinner! Kim is back in Atlanta to film more scenes for her recurring guest role on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva.
Kimmie Kakes tweeted a photo of herself with NeNe on Wednesday with the caption “HOTlanta is not the same without dinner with @neneleakes LOVE YOU!” That pic is also below!

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured a lot of bad evening attire. Whew. That mess of bad fashion at the anniversary party was so distracting, was it not? We also got some family drama, and Kim playing her new role of lady of the rented mcmansion. Oh, and Phaedra embalmed a dummy!
Things begin with Kim storming around her garage, ordering Sweetie and her father around under the guise of organizing before Kroy comes home. Kim is quite the hoarder collector! Kim claims she’s helping with the shuffling of boxes across the garage, but she’s really just barking orders. Sweetie threatens to call Clark Howard, who is some guy on the local news that exposes employers who mistreat their employees. Yes, Sweetie needs to get on that call.
Sweetie takes a cigarette break and Kim freaks out, chasing her all over the house bellowing and threatening. #timemanagement. Kim explains that Sweetie has become more of a friend than employee, and doesn’t take her job seriously. Is it because Kim has become more of a joke than ever? Although I agree, Sweetie needs to do her job or quit. Kim’s father tells her she needs yoga, she misses the point and says she’s already lost weight. I think he meant she needs to calm down. BTW – is anyone else not surprised Big Poppa is allegedly broke after seeing all that loot?

The ladies are settling back into their lives in Atlanta, but of course the drama follows them wherever they go. Taking to her blog, NeNe Leakes doesn’t hold back when writing about her perceived discord between the Smalls.
NeNe notes, “[T]here was drama about whether Kim [Zolciak] would have come to Africa and Kandi [Burruss]saying something about Kim holding a baby at the orphanage. The Smalls are looking a bit divided. Do you have to be friends with someone to agree with what they are saying? From what I could see, Cynthia [Bailey]said something that Kandi obviously agreed with.”
Continues the Neenster, “What’s the problem? She shouldn’t agree just because she’s not as close with Cynthia? Can you say stupid? These girls make me laugh out loud.” LOL, NeNe, LOL indeed.
Cynthia, fellow Tall and adorer of NeNe, both addresses and dismisses the South African drama in her blog entry. She begins, “It always feels good to get away for a few days, but with these girls, ten days felt like ten years! Lord have mercy! At times it was kind of like walking through a land mine, and if you didn’t watch your step, you could be blasted at any time!”
“Anything and everything you said was blown out of proportion, everything was a big deal (even when it wasn’t), and there was ‘shade’ around every corner,” reveals Cynthia. However, she doesn’t have time for that nonsense, saying, “Forever the optimist, the good always outweighs the bad with me. Positive affirmation will carry you far. The drama was inevitable on a trip like this. It was just a matter of time. Overall, drama or not, it was still the trip of a lifetime. Anyway, I missed my family so much and it felt good to be back home.”
Speaking of family, Cynthia writes, “I’m excited that Peter wants to do a one year anniversary party. We went through a lot at our wedding (understatement), and it was a tough first year. However, we made it to our one-year anniversary despite the naysayers. I’m actually very excited to celebrate!”
She admits, “We are not working with a Diddy budget or anything, but we can definitely afford to have a nice little gathering with our friends and family. Yes! There will be plenty of food and drinks, but I’m not sure if synchronized swimming mermaids in the pool will be in the budget! Thank you, NeNe, for helping Peter plan the party. Your love and support means a lot.”
Moving on to a shadier side of things, Kim’s new interior designer–also known as the woman who owns Kim and Kroy’s rented mansion–is taking heat as some of her past behavior is being questioned. Perhaps, Marlo Hampton should teach a class on the proper etiquette for shady pasts…
Wetpaint.com is reporting that Kim’s “designer” Kendra Davis has some pesky issues with controlling her temper…as does her husband. She’s married to former NBA player Antonio Davis, who played for the Chicago Bull, New York Knicks, and Toronto Raptors. Despite gossip to the contrary, a source close to the couple reveals they are not divorced.
While playing for the Bulls in January of 2006, Antonio received a five-game suspension as punishment for charging the stands after allegedly seeing a fan talking smack to Kendra.
After that incident, Kendra was charged with road rage for behavior she exhibited in October of 2005. And just, pray tell, was that behavior? Oh, she just cut off another driver and threw hot coffee into the woman’s open window. Kendra explained that she threw the coffee in retaliation to a racial slur used by the other driver, a claim the motorist denied. Kendra was later acquitted by a jury on all charges.
So basically, to those readers who live in Atlanta, if you see Kendra on highway, slow down, let her pass, and by all means, roll up your windows!
On tonight’s episode, Kim and her dad are trying to clean out the garage in anticipation of Kroy’s return from training camp. Kim yells at Sweetie for not doing enough work, while Sweetie threatens to call a local newscaster who reveals working scams. Kim’s feels like the pair’s friendship has broken down the boundaries of their working relationship.
Phaedra works towards her mortician’s license, and she’s disappointed to learn she’ll be working with a dummy to begin with…not an actual dead body. She learns how to drain the blood, embalm, and put make-up on the faux corpse. Phaedra fancies herself a painter of funeral arts.
Peter is planning the anniversary party, and he wants it to be black-tie and over the top…which translates into over budget. Peter seems to be using this party to simply impress his friends. He wants a Bentley limo, and Cynthia’s onboard until Peter tells her he won’t allow Mallory to ride with them to the party.
A new episode airs tonight at 9PM ET on Bravo. Watch a preview clip below!

Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies returned to the States, to nothing but drama. NeNe learned Bryson got arrested, Peter is spending more money Cynthia can’t afford to waste, and Kim is furious over Kandi‘s alleged “black babies” comment with Sheree stirring the pot all the way to millionaire’s row! Oh, these girls – no moving experience in Africa was going to move them!
The women are getting ready to leave South Africa. Marlo has the housekeeper bring her an icee and pack up all her things, while she lounges on the bed barking instructions. I’m very surprised she and Kim don’t get along better – they have many similarities! Meanwhile, NeNe needs help zipping and hauling all her Louis VOO-Tawn luggage to the car.

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?
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!
