kim zolciak dj tracy youngSimon van Kempen and Alex McCord

So is she or isn’t she? Just days after Kim Zolciak went on a radio show to proclaim she was back with her married “fiance,” Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar, UsWeekly printed an article claiming the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is a lesbian and will come out during the 3rd season of her show.

According to their source, “Tracy broke up with her longtime girlfriend to be with Kim. Since they’ve been together, Tracy lost a lot of weight and got really skinny for Kim. They seem to be beyond happy with each other.”

Their other source for the story? Well it was none other than Simon van Kempen (who is married to Alex McCord) of the Real Housewives of NYC. “The rumor is that Kim Zolciak will come out this season,” he told Us at the Season 3 screening party in NYC.

In Simon’s defense, he did use the word “rumor.” However, Kim didn’t take too well to this story or Simon giving his input. She took to her twitter page and posted the following just hours after UsWeekly ran the story, “WOW…who the hell is Simon van Kempen? Talking abt me in US weekly. Give me a break…Get ur facts straights, Never met that man in my life.”

But what Kim, 31, didn’t do is deny the story. In fact, she has yet to publicly deny dating DJ Tracy Young, or even deny being a lesbian. Another report from entertainment reporter, Marc Malkin of E! News, also claims Kim is indeed dating DJ Tracy. According to Marc, his sources also confirm to him that Kim has been dating Tracy for 3 months.

Some people who are not buying Kim’s new relationship are apparently some Bravo execs who feel Kim decided to “become gay” because having a juicy storyline could help her in negotiations. As we reported, Kim is still negotating with Bravo for more money to do the 3rd season.

It seems Kim Zolciak is done experimenting as she reveals her on-off-on-off again relationship with her married sugar daddy boyfriend “fiance” is back on.

This is all the more interesting as it was only 2 months ago that Kim insinuated she was dating DJ Tracy Young, who is openly gay. It seems that is now over, as Kim told Atlanta radio station Q100’s The Bert Show, “I’m still with Big Poppa.”

And though Bravo is set to begin filming the 3rd season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta next month, Kim surprisingly revealed she has yet to come to an agreement with the network because she is holding out for more money. “They need to up it … It was very dramatic and very traumatic last year. I’ve got to at least get paid what it’s worth.”

It has been reported Bravo has offered the ladies $150,000 each to do this season, a 50% increase from their pay last year. Kim however confirms Bravo has asked all five housewives back, what she cannot confirm is whether or not it will be as dramatic as the second season. “All the girls, we’re all getting along. We’re in a different place, we kind of know what to expect,” she says.

Khloe Kardashian OdomKourtney Kardashian Post Baby

The season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians featuring the birth of Kourtney Kardashian’s first child, was the most watched program in the history of the E! network. Drawing in 4.8 million viewers, it’s safe to say the Kardashians will not be going away anytime soon.

Some have questioned whether such an intimate moment such as childbirth should have been shown on national television, one person who strongly disagrees is new mom Kourtney.

“She’s 100 percent happy she did it,” Khloe Kardashian, 25, told UsWeekly Tuesday while in NYC. Khloe however revealed she was a little ‘traumatized” with being in the delivery room.

As for her current relationship with her sister’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, whom Khloe is not a fan of, she reveals that “Everyday is different,” when it comes to Scott.

In other news, the NYPost is reporting Khloe Kardashian almost started a cat-fight amongst two Bravo NYC housewives, Kelly Bensimon and Ramona Singer, a during her recent appearance at a NYC night club.

Apparently Khloe was chatting with Kelly, during which Ramona got jealous and decided to pounce in on their conversation in the VIP area, thus causing a ruckus. According to a source, “Ramona barged her way through the VIP area and practically jumped over a table to get to Khloe.” Kelly was reportedly “mortified and left immediately.”

Kelly declined to comment on this story while a rep for Ramona insists she “did not steamroller her way in — Khloe invited her.”

The new season of The Real Housewives of NYC premiers exactly a week from today. You can view the official cast photos here!

Didn’t really see this one coming, but apparently Alexis Bellino of the Real Housewives of Orange County was once upon a time, a Maxim “Hometown Hottie.”

Back in 2003, while married to her first husband Jeff Barry, Alexis took some rather sexy shots for the Men’s magazine Maxim. She was representing her then hometown La Jolla, California. The non-professional looking photos look to have been taken by Alexis and then submitted to Maxim. More of the photos are posted below.

You can read more about Alexis and Jeff’s messy divorce here!

According to the Maxim website, Alexis is listed as being 5’7″ and weighing 123 lbs. Her profession is listed as Health club manager, her favorite artist is Madonna and she is listed as married. She would go on to divorce her first husband later on that year.

As for her passion, Alexis says, “I have a passion for fitness and spoiling my two teacup chihuahuas.”

So what can be expect this third season? Well for one, Bethenny discovers she’s pregnant and gets engaged, LuAnn goes through her divorce and tries her hand at singing, Ramona renews her wedding vows, Alex gets catty and fiesty, and the ladies actually start to like Kelly. However, the main focus this season will be Jill vs Bethenny, as it has been widely reported the former BFFs are no longer friends.

Below is a video preview -

Tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County marks the 13th episode of this never ending 5th season.

What is to come tonight? Well we get to see the continuation of the fight or argument brewing between new housewife Alexis Bellino and original housewife Vicki Gunvalson. Part of their exchange is below:

Vicki: “Is this gang (up) on Vicki day? Leave me alone.”

Alexis: “I’m just trying to help you.”

Vicki: “You don’t need to help me. I’m good. You don’t need to help me. You don’t even know me.”

Alexis: “Hmm. But yet, one, two, three, four-all girls out of the five say …”

Vicki: “Don’t count Lynne in. Don’t count my friend Tamra in, whom you just met. OK? Let’s get that straight right now. She’s my friend. You just met her. Don’t you dare put her against me.”

Alexa: “Don’t you dare say she’s not my friend. She’s my friend. She’s friends, OK?”

Tamra: “I’m friends with everybody. Friends with everybody. I don’t want to fight with anybody.”

Vicki: “I’m out.” Proceeding to leave the table and restaurant.

As you can see from the Bravo preview clip below, Alexis doesn’t back down to Vicki, ultimately leading to all the ladies going outside. Tamra’s attempt to become the peacemaker doesn’t seem to help much.

Must say I’m actually Team Alexis on this one. Vicki loves to dish it out, but turns herself into a victim the minute somebody dishes it back to her. Yes, Vicki has been a lot more likable and tolerable this season, but every now and then, that old Vicky rears its ugly head. She was rude to Alexis at Lynne’s dinner party, and Alexis has a right to call her out on it.

TELL US – ARE YOU TEAM ALEXIS OR TEAM VICKI ON THIS FIGHT?

Bethenny Frankel is enjoying being pregnant as the Real Housewives of New York City star showed off her baby bump at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Red Dress Collection during New York fashion week.

So what about the question on everyone’s mind, which is what is the sex of her baby? Bethenny explained, “My fiancé (Jason Hoppy) doesn’t want to find out.” Not to worry as Bethenny’s whole pregnancy ordeal will be chronicled on her soon to come reality show – Bethenny’s Getting Married?

As for her volatile relationship with former BFF Jill Zarin, Bethenny doesn’t rule out a reconciliation saying: “I just don’t know what will happen between Jill and I.”

Gretchen Rossi

Gretchen Rossi has been ordered to court to disclose her finances according to RadarOnline. This all has to do with Jay Photoglou of course, and the $18,900 he was awarded in legal fees connected to a restraining order case she filed against him last year.

A Newport Beach, California Judge ordered the Real Housewife of Orange County to appear in court March 10 to provide information about her finances and assets.

Which brings us to Gretchen’s new interview with the LA Times, during which she opens up about her financial situation, more importantly sets the record straight on the $2.5 million her deceased fiance Jeff Beitzel left her in his will. While Gretchen admits she was left $2.5 mil by Jeff, she also insists she has yet to receive the money as Jeff’s estate is in a deficit.

Gretchen also discusses her never-ending feud with Tamra Barney, as well as where they stand today. She also talks Slade, the whole Alexa Curtin ordeal and how she deals with the negativity that comes with being on the show. What she doesn’t talk about however is Jay.

Excerpts from Gretchen’s interview below -

It was hard to track you down. You’re a busy gal. What are you working on right now?

Oh, gosh. If I told you, you’d be worn out by the time we were done.

Maybe you should tell Vicki [Gunvalson]…

That’s so true. I should call Vicki up and say, “Come spend a day with me and let’s have a little chitty-chat about what I really do.”

Right now, at this given moment, the last week has just been kind of crunch time for my makeup line (Gretchen Christine Beaute) that I’m launching.

And we see that you’re not rolling in the dough — as some suspected — after Jeff’s death.

Everybody had this misconception that I was with Jeff for his money. And that Jeff had millions and millions of dollars and … he didn’t; meaning right now his estate is in the deficit. It really was never information that I thought was appropriate to share but, unfortunately, when his will gets released to the public and everyone is reading it and saying he left me $2.5 million — well, he did. The problem is, is that if he doesn’t have $2.5 million to give me — you know, his estate doesn’t have it because it’s in the deficit — I’m not going to get it. If somebody doesn’t have the money, it really doesn’t matter. That’s where I think the misconception comes in. Everybody thinks I got left millions of dollars — which I did — but I have not received it. The thing, too, is that I never saw Jeff’s money as my money. It was always nice to be in a relationship with someone who was well off at the time that we were dating; I was spoiled rotten, yes. And I had a great lifestyle with him … but I also made my own money and the show really didn’t show that side of me. They didn’t show me as the entrepreneur that I was.

So how did you get involved? Did you audition?

For me, it was a different scenario. I was at a girlfriend’s party down at a restaurant here in Newport. Jo [De la Rosa] and Slade [Smiley] were actually sitting across the table from me at this party and I was being my crazy, flamboyant, obnoxious self and they started whispering to each other. I was like, “Are you guys talking crap about me?” — teasing them. They were like, “No, but you’re perfect for the show.” I was like, “Perfect for what show?” Cause they hadn’t been on for a couple of years so I wasn’t really sure what they were talking about. And they said I’d be perfect for “Housewives.” I was like, “You guys are smoking crack. I’m not doing that.” Slade kept insisting.

The next morning, I get a phone call from the casting agent at 7 a.m.; she said, “I hear you’re perfect.” It took a whole day of phone calls back and forth for them to even convince me. It really came down to me sitting down with Jeff. He was the one who convinced me to do that. I think the reason for that was that at that point, we had been in and out of the hospital for the last three or four months. We were right at a point where we thought we would get told he was going into remission. He was like, “You know, honey” — cause I had actually been approached three other times to do reality shows; I just turned them down because it wasn’t something I wanted to do. He just said, “Honey, you keep getting these opportunities. Maybe there’s something in the universe telling you to do this. And I’m really kind of sick of everything, everyday being about cancer. This sounds like fun.”

I think he saw it as an opportunity to travel and have an excuse to go do things. So he was the ultimate reason I ended up doing the show.

The rift seems to now center on this blog entry you wrote. Tamra [Barney] wants you to take it down, but you refuse. Can you talk a little bit about why?

I’m not going to take it down. There were so many things that Tamra put out there to the press and the show that were contradictory or that were lies. All those things are out in cyberspace forever and ever. So as soon as she can figure out a way to get all those things taken down, then I’ll be happy to take it down. But as long as those things are out there, the blog is my only source of truth and my only source of getting what really happened out there. I was rather taken aback by her because I believed she was my friend all season, and when she attacked me at the reunion show I was like, ‘Where in the hell did this come from?” So I wanted to clear the air up.

So are you guys still somewhat friendly? I mean, we see that you do have fun when you’re in a group setting. Have you reached out to her since news of her divorce?

No. Tamra and I don’t talk. We’re not girlfriends. We don’t call each other and say, “Let’s go hang out and have coffee.” I never really had problems with Tamra. I always liked Tamra; I got along with her and I thought she was funny and I thought our personalities were very similar. I liked her. But you just know when there’s poisonous people in your life and you know when people are trying to pull wool over your eyes and, for me, she’s one of those people. She might not be that way with other people, but she is with me. She is someone that I work with and someone I will be cordial with. And we’ll have a good time. The whole situation with the divorce and stuff … after the way she treated me after Jeff passed away, I don’t necessarily see myself calling her up and saying, “Hey, how ya doing?” Cause of the way she treated me. I’m a big believer in treating people the way they treat you.
