The Real Housewives of Atlantadoes not premier on Bravo for 2 more weeks but the games have already began. Kim Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson has taken to his site to dish some major dirt on her. It seems the two had a falling out earlier this year. The things Jonathan has to say about Kim include -
She has an addiction to dating married men for the past ten years and even cheating on them.
She never had cancer. Her hair was simply extremely overly processed and she wore extensions which took chunks out of her hair and it hasn’t been the same since. (Hence why she wears wigs.)
“Barbie” was her stripper name while she danced nude and gave private lap dances for men and women at Atlanta’s strip club “Cheetah” back in 2003.
She recently got re-engaged, with even a bigger rock, to Lee Najjar, aka “Big Poppa.” (His name is on her ring finger, which she has been trying to get lasered off for some time now.)*She spends over $50,000 a month and makes her bills paid in time by battering with men.
She has no intention in marrying her current married man, as long as her bills are paid on time.
She and the other ladies of Atlanta’s Season 2 banked $100k for the filming of the show. A battle that took a while to win.
She got her ass nearly beat down by Sheree and NeNe on this year’s upcoming season. Mostly for telling ridiculous lies on the ladies.
Allrighty then. The new season premiers July 30th on Bravo. A picture of Lee Najjar aka Big Poppa below, as well as a photo of Kim with Jonathan -

An expanded live series of Watch What Happens will premiere July 16 on Bravo at midnight with host Andy Cohen. Andy is best known for hosting Watch What Happens reunion specials including the two part reunion for The Real housewives of New Jersey.
Viewers will enjoy getting to know Andy and his weekly guests. Andy will interview guests from some of Bravo’s highly rated shows. The show is meant to keep you updated on the world of entertainment, pop culture . There will be lots of viewer interaction by email, phone, video, twitter and facebook.
We can expect the show to be unpredictable, funny, and occasionally shocking. You don’t want to miss the premier show tomorrow which will feature New Jersey Housewives’ Danielle Staub.
Hopefully Andy will ask some unanswered questions from the reunion show and let’s hope Danielle will answer them truthfully.
Alexis who is from Newport Coast is described as a stay-at-home mother of three. There are conflicting stories on wether or not Alexis is replacing OC veteran, Jeana Keough. The OC Register is reporting Jeana will not be back, while other reports have stated Jeana will be returning.
The one thing we are certain of is that Alexis will be on the show. Alexis’s husband is Jim Bellino, 47. Jim is described as an entrepreneur who use to own a pool table business that was an $8 million-a-year-profit company.
In a new interview with the OC register, Alexis describes filming with the other women – “It has been amazing. I already knew Gretchen. Lynne (Curtin)’s a sweetheart. She doesn’t have a mean bone in body. Vicki (Gunvalson) and I joked and laughed and had a good time. But there’s drama anytime you get five women together.”
Unlike Kelly Bensimon of the NY Housewives, Alexis describes herself as an addict of the show and has seen every single episode.
This should make for an interesting new season. I love the fact that she just happens to be a friend of Gretchen. Alexis is obviously easy on the eyes as is Gretchen. So it might be safe to say Tamra Barney will spend the entire season on trying to “out” her on something, or accuse Alexis of trying to be like her.

Energetic Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice is expecting baby #4 in September. Teresa opens up to OK magazine about her pregnancy.
“I eat everything,” she tellsOK with young daughter Gia at her side. “I don’t watch what I eat – I’m not one of those ‘oh I have to watch my figure.’ I just make the baby happy. Whatever the baby wants, I eat it. No cravings.” Teresa says she has had to satisfy her alcohol cravings with food.
She goes on to say she is not interested in knowing the sex of the baby. “Whatever God wants – as long as it’s a healthy baby.” Gia adds, “It’s the fourth child and you want it to be a surprise – you should let it be a surprise.”
Big sisters Gia, Gabriella and Milania are anxious to meet the new addition to the family. Teresa also adds that hubby, Juicy Joe, is a great dad.
Lessons she will like to pass on to the kids- value family and be a well-rounded good person because you have to look at yourself in the mirror daily.
In an interview with Radaronline, Jill insists that she will be returning even though she has yet to sign the contract. In addition, she confirmed Kelly Bensimon was one of the first housewives to sign the contract for season 3. However, she failed to confirm if other cast mates had signed their contracts.
Even though Bravo released a statement saying they are looking for new cast members, Jill insists all the cast mates will be returning. “The ink isn’t dry yet, but I can tell you that we’re all set on returning,” she said. “Bravo released a statement saying they were looking for new cast members and I think people read into that. I think the show was giving some of the original cast members a chance to deal with their personal lives.”
She also refutes rumors saying she was getting paid about $30,000 an episode, but nevertheless she says she is not involved in reality television because of the money.
We reported a written preview of what was to come in the 2nd season premier of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Well Bravo has now officially released a video preview of what is to come this season, and it is filled with nothing but drama! Check it out below -
The contract information of The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast has been leaked and boy oh boy is it interesting. Popsquire was able to get their hands on the contract signed by one of the ladies, and here is a brief summary of what it entails -
Unlike most other reality shows, the contract does not require Bravo to pay the NJ ladies for their appearances.
In addition to receiving no compensation, they have to pay Bravo 10% of “any and all gross income…unrelated to the Series” that they earn for up to four years after the last episode of the series. (So I take it Bravo is earning 10% off the profits of Bethanny’s “Naturally Thin” book)
The producers did agree not to film the ladies engaging in any of the following conduct without prior approval: “(i) showering/bathing, (ii) urination/defecation, and (iii) engaging in actual sexually explicit conduct.”
Okay, so these women sign away their lives and even part of the earnings just to be on television? Fame is a helluva drug.
