The formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star fired off a cease and desist to the photo agency selling the photos, claiming that they weren't taken yesterday (but she doesn't say exactly when they were taken).
According to TMZ, "Kim feels the agency defamed her by creating a made-up scandal — and she also claims the photog was trespassing when the smoking pics were taken." She says they DID get photos of her yesterday, but she was wearing black sweat pants seen here. Interestingly, the tank top looks the same in both pics.
The agency did take down the photo set in question, but they are still selling the photos of Kimsmoking at the beach earlier this month before she confirmed her pregnancy to the world.
So far the photo agency hasn't asked us to take them down (or any other media outlet that we know of). We'll keep you posted.
The expectant Don't Be Tardy star was initially spotted on the beach puffing away before she went public with her pregnancy. And yesterday morning Kim was photographed as she chatted on the phone outside her home. I guess the positive thing to note here is that at least she's not smoking in the house with Ariana, Brielle, KJ and Kash.
Before the big pregnancy reveal, Kim toted her existing kids to Turks and Caicos to celebrate Brielle's 16th birthday. Proving she is so the daughter of Wigs Delightful, Brielle complained, "It's not the Bahamas, but I'll take it."
Apparently it's not that Brielle has anything against Turks and Caicos, she has something against Kroy Biermann coming along on the vacation, screwing up yet another Wig family tradition. Oh and she really wants a car.
Pregnancy rumors have been swirling for several weeks and Kim's growing baby bump was on full display during her recent vacation. Kim avoided commenting so that she could make the grand announcement on her show.
Kim and Kroy are already parents to Kash and KJ, as well as Kim's daughters from previous relationships, Ariana and Brielle.
The saga of the one-hit wonder continues… Unfortunately.
In her attempt to get Kandi Burruss' 'Don't Be Tardy' lawsuit against her thrown out of court, Kim Zolciak is taking on Kandi's lawyerPhaedra Parks and asserts that Phaedra has failed to prove that Kandi has sufficient rights to the material in question. She filed a Motion To Dismiss suggesting that Kandi has no grounds to file a suit for material that she has no copyright for.
In paper's filed by Kim's legal counsel she attests that: “Nowhere in Plaintiffs’ Complaint is it asserted that Kandi Koated Entertainment, Inc. is an owner or an assignee of any copyright interest in the Composition or the Sound Recording”.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star of course believes otherwise. Kandi is not the sole party in the lawsuit so it is unclear if Kim believes none of the plaintiffs involved have rights to the copyright.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta has been seeing a rise in viewers every week, nearly hitting three million on Monday night. Also seeing an increase is Kim Zolciak's spinoff,Don't Be Tardy. As much as we love to rag on her, the show rose from 947,000 viewers tuning in to just over a million the following week.
On last night's episode of Don't Be Tardy, our favorite wig-wearing delusionite came up with a new reason for why she can't do anything for herself.
Apparently Kim Zolciak now has ADD and it's the all the fault of that pesky birth control chip known as the IUD. So what's a lady of the wigdor to do? Yank it out in the powder room all by herself, y'all! Don't Be Classy!
Things begin with Kim at home roaming around pretending to be busy while the nannies hover in the corner just to the left of screen. In the meantime Brielle is doing everything possible to get Kim's attention while Kim talks about herself and pretends she's sooooooooo busy. Brielle says that now that Kim is married to Kroy Biermann and dealing with the boys she feels like she never gets anytime with her mom alone.
The Don't Be Tardy star hasn't come clean about the news, but she was spotted over Memorial Day weekend rocking a suspiciously baby bump looking bump while frolicking on the beach (and in the nicotine) with her family!
"Kim loves being pregnant," a source told Us Weekly. "She really wants a little girl."
