Poor Sweetie has been the victim of not just Kim’s crazy, but also NeNe Leakes’ and radio host Rickey Smiley’s when he started a “Free Sweetie” campaign after the infamous final NeNe vs. Kim blow-out last season! Sweetie claimed the effort ruined her life, although she does communicate with Smiley via Twitter, and defended Kim’s treatment of her. Well, now it seems that Sweetie has been set free!
According to Kim’s daughter Brielle who was questioned via Formspring about Sweetie not living with Kim in the family’s new house; the long-suffering and probably abused assistant was “fiiredd”!
When pushed for more information, Brielle responded “I really don’t want to talk about it” and simply stating: “long story” when asked what happened. She also admitted their family no longer talks to Sweetie! No information about when Sweetie was actually let go, but as of late-July she was still working for Kim.
As for Sweetie she has given no statement on the situation, but she did wish Kim’s younger daughter Arianna a happy birthday via Twitter.
Sweetie is definitely appearing in this seasons RHOA, so hopefully we will get to the bottom of the drama!
In other interesting RHOA news, the almost-divorced, NeNe is now a restaurant owner! NeNe Tweeted that she is opening a Famous Famiglia restaurant in the Sacramento International Airport of all places. The pizza depot is slated to open THIS WEEK on Oct 6th. A photo of the new outpost is below – it’s super classy. Four Michelin stars!
As to why she suddenly decided to go into the Italian Fast Food restaurant industry, perhaps NeNe has been hanging out with Teresa Giudice or something…
Are you surprised Kim fired Sweetie? Do you believe it’s final or just a fight between the two ladies? Are you as shocked as I am that NeNe has gone into the pizza business? Would you eat there?
And in the new trailer released by the network, the ATL ladies are more dramatic than ever! In the season trailer below, we see Kim Zolciakdealing with her pregnancy and the arrival of her first son, Phaedra Parks works on opening up a funeral home while her hubby Apollo and Cynthia Bailey’s hubby Peter get into it. And speaking of Cynthia, her family still hates her husband Peter!
In the clip, Nene is also seen dating while husband Greggis not shown. But as it’s been reported, this appears to be a storyline solely for the show as the two have been photographed during filming — away from Bravo cameras — looking happy and cozy. But we’ll let you be the judge. The housewives also manage to take a break from all the drama to visit South Africa!
The RHOA season 4 trailer is below! The show returns Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c.
TELL US – THOUGHT ON THE RHOA TRAILER? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON?
While there’s no confirmation yet on the Nene’s show, Rob Shuter of the Huffington Post revealed today that Bravo is moving ahead with a reality show for Kim, a la Bethenny Frankel.
“Kim is a game-changer. She was the first housewife to release a single ["Tardy for the Party"] and just like Bethenny [Frankel], she fell in love and got pregnant while taping the show. She’s the perfect choice for the next lady to get her own show,” reveals an insider.
Bravo giving an Atlanta housewife their own spinoff isn’t exactly a major surprise as till this day, the franchise remains the highest rated housewives series for the network. The season three finale brought in a record breaking 4.4 million viewers. Season four began filming in April and is scheduled to debut before the end of this year. The RHOA seasons usually premiere in the fall.
“Kim’s new show is going to follow the very successful Bethenny formula,” an insider adds. “A new mom and her fiancé trying to make everything work. Juggling baby, boyfriend and career. But instead of all those trips to a therapist that Bethenny made, expect Kim to work out her problems at the nail salon with friends.”
Should definitely be an interesting show! The report that came out earlier this year stated that if either Kim or Nene got their own spinoff, they would be leaving the RHOA. So it’s very likely season 4 will be Kim’s last season on the show.
Kim gave birth to her third child, a baby boy, back in May, and is currently living with her NFL beau/baby daddy Kroy Biermann. There are rumors the two are engaged but nothing has been confirmed by Kim.
The National Enquirer broke the shocking news in its latest issue stating Kim’s first husband Daniel Dominic Toce is behind bars in a Connecticut state prison after pleading guilty to molesting a 15-year-old.
“Kim can’t believe the father of her girls is a child molester!” a source close to Kim revealed. “When she got the news, she was sick to her stomach. Kim can’t stop thinking about the shocking crime that Daniel committed on that innocent girl.”
Daniel, who remarried after his two-year union to Kim ended in 2003, is no stranger to crime. Before his 2010 arrest for sexual risk of injury to a minor, he had previous arrests and convictions ranging from breach of peace to felony robbery and larceny, dating back to 2004.
And while some reports had mixed up Kim’s ex-husband Daniel with another Daniel Toce, who happens to be the son of a billionaire, it turns out Kim’s Daniel is far from being wealthy. In fact, this Daniel is reportedly broke and owes back child support for his kids from his first marriage. Kim has always maintained she doesn’t receive child support nor alimony from her ex.
Daniel, who pleaded guilty to a single count of felony sex abuse against a minor, was sentenced to 10 years behind bars. He will however only have to serve 2 1/2 years as his remaining sentence will be suspended. Only 2.5 years for molesting a child? Disgusting.
While Daniel sits in prison, Kim, 33, is now trying to cut off all contact between him and her two daughters, Brielle, 14, and 10-year-old Ariana.
“Kim is consulting her legal team to see if she can permanently terminate Daniel’s parental rights or at least severely restrict them,” reveals a source. “She doesn’t want him anywhere near her two girls when he gets out of prison.” Though the Enquirer reports Daniel is the father of both of Kim’s daughters, it appears Daniel is only the father of Kim’s youngest daughter Ariana.
In other RHOA news, TheYBF blog is reporting that the one and only Nene Leakes has been giving her fans the cold shoulder. Below is an excerpt about a fan’s recent run in with the Nene from the blog -
A fan spotted NeNe on a 2:30p flight from Ft. Lauderdale airport (NeNe was vacaying in Miami for the Holiday)… And she wasn’t alone. Her husband (didn’t they say they were getting a divorce?) was there acting extra coupled up…and with the 2 sons. So when the fan attempted to say “Hello” to the Gucci’d up (dress and shades) reality chick, the fan allegedly got an up-and-down glance once-over and a shrug-off from NeNe.
I use to be a big FAN of NeNe from Atlanta housewives. Well not anymore.” All that has changed, the fan said. “I was so excited to see her so I spoke to her I said hi. She looked at me up and down, and in the rudest voice she could muster as if I were a peasant she said HI!”
Can the Nene even be considered a Z-list celebrity? Yikes.
As you all know by now theReal Housewives of Atlanta season 4 is currently filming, and according to a new report, the ladies are currently in South Africa!
In what has quickly become a Bravo ‘Housewives’ tradition, each of the ‘Housewives’ franchises take a yearly trip to fight away from home film for the show, well with the exceptoion of the recentReal Housewives of Miami season. They were too busy taking cooking lessons.
The Straight From The A blog states all of the Atlanta housewives, with the exception of Kim Zolciak who is nursing her new born, departed for South Africa days ago. Kim however tweeted goodbye to some of her costars, “@IamSheree @PhaedraParks love you guys! Have fun!!! Xxooo,” she wrote.
Bravo is reportedly footing the bill for the trip of course. While Nene Leakes, Phaedra, Kandi, Sheree and Cynthia all made the trip, there’s no word yet on whether new housewife Marlo Hampton went with them or if she’s even allowed to leave the country, you know, considering her extensive criminal record. Oh well, here’s to hoping the Nene behaves differently on this trip than she did in Miami on season 3!
Meanwhile, Kim recently tweeted a number of photos including a pic of herself without her wig or any make up on! That must see photo is below along with other new photos of herself, her son and fiance Kroy!

Days after a report questioned whether Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes’ “divorce” to husband Gregg Leakes was a publicity stunt for the series (they were photographed together looking cozy and trying to hide from cameras), a new report today sheds some new light on the behind the scenes taping of the RHOA as the 4th season is still filming.
The Decatur Metro blog ponders just how real the show is as the writer sat next to housewives Sheree Whitfield,Kandi Burruss and two of their friends last Thursday during a restaurant taping at Decatur’s Wahoo Grill. Below are some of the highlights of what the writer discovered -
“1. The conversation was repeatedly interrupted and guided by a crew member. The women would talk for a few minutes, then a crew member would approach the table and tell the women what to talk about. At one point, the crew member told the women they needed to switch to a light topic because they’d already spent a lot of time on serious topics.
2. When one of the crew members was leaving, one of the ‘Housewives’ said she would see him tomorrow at the ‘funeral home scene.’ If she’s calling it a ‘scene,” how ‘real’ can it be?
3. For some reason, the first taping of the women exiting the restaurant didn’t work. At the crew’s direction, the women returned to their seats, then taped a second exit scene.”
The writer also adds that most of the Atlanta housewives are driving rental cars. Very interesting report. It will be interesting to see how the 4th season of the RHOA turns out as reality shows always take a turn for the worse once the stars start faking it, example the Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This report is however not that surprising as with the exception of the Nene, all of the housewives seem to be getting along rather well. And what good is that for the drama and ratings?
I will add that this doesn’t mean all of the drama is fake (example the tour bus fight between Nene and Kim last season was very real) as it is actually very common practice for producers of reality shows to “guide” certain conversations and scenes. An example of this is let’s say some drama went down at an event between two cast members, the producers could encourage their costars to meet up the next day to talk about it. Also most of the housewives series have different production companies behind them so the practices are likely different for each series.
In other RHOA news, just weeks after giving birth to her son Kroy Jagger,Kim Zolciakhas lost most if not all of her baby weight!
In pictures below, Kim, 33, shows off her post baby body! In an interview with Wetpaint, the mother of three reveals just how she lost the baby weight so quickly. Excerpts from Kim’s interview below -
We saw the recent pics of you and you look amazing! How did you drop the baby weight so quickly? What are your workout and diet secrets?
Kim Zolciak: I am unable to work out for another few weeks, although I am not BIG on going to the gym. I do think breastfeeding really helps and Kroy and I walk the baby every night.
Is there any area that you particularly want to work on?
I love my curves and really just want to firm up. My least favorite part of my body I would say are my legs. I have thicker legs then I would like and have to run to keep them in shape!
Kim also adds that she is not big on dieting and believes in eating everything in moderation. Recent photos of Kim below!

According to the TalkingWithTami blog, which was on hand to snap photos at the event, The Bailey Agency offers an intense six-week course with Cynthia, exploring the many different facets of modeling such as etiquette, walking the catwalk, posing, photography, film production, make-up amongst other things.
Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine with a photo of her newborn Kroy Jagger Biermann who weighed in at eight pounds at birth. The photo comes a month after Kim delivered her baby on May 31st.
“It’s unimaginable — I’m so blessed, so lucky,” gushes Kim, 33, about her first son, whom she affectionately calls K.J. “I’m just so crazy in love with K.J. – I’m always kissing his big old lips.”
And while Bravo cameras were in the hospital with Kim, they were not in the delivery room. “The actual delivery itself was very private, very personal,” Kim reveals. “To be in such a happy place with Kroy there, it was definitely very emotional. It couldn’t have been more perfect.”
Kim, who already has two daughters Brielle, 14, and Arianna, 9, reveals her NFL beau Kroy Beirmann has been very supportive. “Kroy is just very calm,” says Kim. “He gets up with me every time I get up. We’ll change his diaper together, or he’ll give him a bottle if I pump. We’re really a team versus me doing a lot of things myself.’
“I’m 100,000 percent certain that Kroy is the one for me. I definitely would like one more child,” she adds. So can we expect another baby for Kroy and Kim? “I’d like to get married first,’ she says. “But I definitely would like one more child so K.J. has a little playmate. And then I’m done.”
And when it comes to her costar Nene Leakes, Kim reveals she hasn’t heard from her but she is a-okay with that. “But I don’t care,” she says. “I don’t want any negativity around me. ‘I’m in a different place in life now and I couldn’t be happier.”
