Kim Zolciak Interview

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is opening up about her personal life in two new interviews with PEOPLE magazine.

In the interviews, the professional gold-digger 32-year-old reality star discusses being in her second trimester (she’s pregnant by beau & NFL Player Kroy Biermann), touches on the engagement rumors she probably leaked herself, speaks on castmate Phaedra Parks and also touches on her upcoming book.

Excerpts from Kim’s interviews below -

Do your daughters get along well with Kroy? Are they excited he’s in the picture?
They are crazy about Kroy. Half the time they go out to dinner and leave me at home, honey. He’s really fantastic with my girls. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner ever.

Have your fellow Housewives reached out?
Well, Kandi knew a long time ago. I told Kandi right around the time I found out. Of course she’s great and excited for me. Sheree has known for a long time, too. She’s cute. She’ll send me text messages [like], “I hope you’re not overdoing it” and “Do you need anything?” I have not spoken to NeNe or Cynthia. Phaedra was really sweet when she found out about it in the press.

Recently there were rumors you were engaged. Do you have anything to share?

No, and I guess they had nothing else to talk about that day. It’s obvious that we’ve been intimate so why would I not want to go and show the world my ring? Do I think I have a future with Kroy? Without a shadow of a doubt. He’s just amazing. I shared baby news. I certainly would be sharing an engagement.

Apart from your music career, you have a book coming out. What’s it about?
I was actually going to do a hair and makeup on a budget book … but I get asked so many times out in public, “Kim, how did you get Big Poppa?” Everybody seems to think that [landing Big Poppa] so revolved around money, and I am like, you know, I really need to let these people know … It will be the farthest thing from giving relationship advice but, technically, I do know at the end of the day what it takes to have a partner that equals you.

Back to the drama on the show: what did you make of Dwight and Phaedra making comments about your nursing qualifications? And what did you think of her pregnancy?
I’ve never hung out with Dwight. I don’t even know him. He just needs to fix his nose and keep it moving. I don’t know why he feels the need to talk about me. As far as Phaedra, I really didn’t care about her pregnancy. I guess what bothers me is she just kind of insulted everybody’s intelligence … Getting into all the comments and things I’ve said about it, [it's like], I want you guys to know I’m not stupid. I had to go through labor and delivery and clinicals when I was in school. And I had two children of my own. It was more or less that, not that I actually cared about the actual situation.

What do you think of Phaedra
I actually really like her, believe it or not. She’s a fantastic mother. She’s actually really funny. She is cool. She’s real cool, actually. I haven’t spent a whole bunch of time with her … but she’s a very nice, sweet person.

In other Kim news, her ex lesbian lover DJ Tracy Young took to her twitter page to lash out at her after finding out Kim was running her name through the mud. Two of Tracy’s tweets about Kim below -

“Talk is cheap @kimzolciak U weren’t calling me a “famed obssesed coat tail rider” when u were riding my tail screaming my name…XO

If you want to know the truth listen to my song, “What’s Done Is Done” @kimzolciak http://bit.ly/ds84JB

Allrighty then. And finally, the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be on hiatus this coming Sunday. The show will return on January 2. And according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there are three episodes left this season. The finale episode will air Jan. 16, 2011 followed by two reunion shows and a lost footage episode.

Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta opens up in an exclusive new interview with Essence.

Kim talks about how Kandi is dealing with her tragic week, her thoughts on AJ, the breakup with Big Poppa (Lee Najjar) as well as her new boyfriend. She also speaks briefly on Big Poppa’s wife, saying his wife knew about her.

Below are excerpts from Kim’s new interview -

ESSENCE.COM: How is Kandi doing? Have you spoken to her?
KIM ZOLCIAK:
I spoke with her mom and texted her just to let her know I’m here. I was one of the first to find out and I called the other ladies. Everybody has been fantastic but it’s unfortunate that it takes a tragedy to bring us all together. We were able to put all our stuff on the back burner and come together for Kandi. It’s not something that I ever thought would happen, no matter how tragic the situation.

ESSENCE.COM: What was your interaction with A.J like?
ZOLCIAK:
He actually called me last week and I never called him back, which sucks. I adored him. He was such a great guy. He was actually with Big Papa the night I got engaged. I hated that people have this bad impression of him because he had so many children. He was a great father and he was great with Riley [Kandi's 7-year-old daughter] and he loved Kandi.

ESSENCE.COM: And when is the wig line coming out?
ZOLCIAK:
I’ve joined with a company called Pop Wigs who will manufacture and distribute the wigs. It’s a lot more work than I ever anticipated. I’m working on everything from trademarking to the packaging. I’m really proud of the wigs, so by December people will be able to do pre-orders and we can send them out by January.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak

Atlanta “Housewife” Kim Zolciak is touching on a lot of issues in her new interview with Essence.com. Kim speaks out on fighting with Nene and Sheree, her new leaked single – “Don’t Be Tardy To The Party,” plus her relationship with the infamous Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar.

Below are some excerpts from the interview -

ESSENCE.COM: Your first release, “Tardy for the Party,” was leaked on the Internet yesterday. What happened?
KIM ZOLCIAK
: I’m super pissed off about it. I never released that song to Ryan Seacrest or anyone else. It was going to be on iTunes and I wanted people to see all the thought that went into it, along the timeline of the show so you can see me in the studio and watch me go through the whole process. This is just not how I wanted to release my first song. There’s a snake out there. I just have to figure out who it is.

ESSENCE.COM: NeNe’s new book, “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice,” just came out. Have you read it?
ZOLCIAK:
I have not read the book yet, but hell yeah, if she wrote about me, I’m going to read it. I mean, she had to write about me in order to sell the book. She told me, ‘Well, maybe you should read it on your way back from New York. So I don’t know what she wrote but I do wish her success and I’m happy for her.

ESSENCE.COM: You two came to blows a few months ago. There was a police report indicating that NeNe assaulted you. What happened?
ZOLCIAK
: Nene and I have decided to just move on from that. Yes, there was altercation but we’ve talked in great length about it and we’re just both on to bigger and better things like her book and my wig line. NeNe and I care about each other and because we do, sometimes emotions run a lot higher than if we didn’t care at all.

ESSENCE.COM: Thanks for bringing that up. Photos of what appears to be you and a man named Lee Najjar walking on a beach popped up on the Web recently. Is Lee Najjar Big Papa?
ZOLCIAK:
There are a lot of people who are alleged to be Big Papa and I know all of them, from Dallas Austin to Lee Najjar to Quincy Jones to Ted Turner. You just have to stay tuned and watch what happens to see who Big Papa really is.

ESSENCE.COM: This season has been a lot for youbetween the fight with NeNe and the hair pulling with Sheree. How are you dealing with it all?
ZOLCIAK:
It’s been incredibly stressful and my best friend Cori has been my rock. My girls are always trying to pump me up and they keep me grounded. I can’t deny that I do get emotional and ask myself sometimes, ‘Oh, my God, what have I done?’ But it’s a catch-22 and I just keep moving forward.

ESSENCE.COM: Tonight, Bravo has added an extra hour, featuring more details about your fight with Sheree. Do you think this is all overkill?
ZOLCIAK:
All I know is that Sheree acted a fool. I mean, who does that as a grown woman? It was immature and I was really caught off guard by the whole thing. I guess controversy sells. We’re not the highest rated because we go to church and bake cookies.
