A week after Kandi Burrussfiled a lawsuit against Kim in federal court over royalties, non-payment, and rights to use the song 'Tardy For The Party,' Kim continues to desperately exonerate herself by slamming Kandi in the media and on twitter. Among other things, Kim has called Kandi a famewhore seeking publicity and a liar. Kandi has not commented.
Going one step further, the Don't Be Tardy star put out an official press release giving her perspective on the lawsuit. It is of no surprise that Kim takes no responsibility and accuses Kandi of lies and negligence. Furthermore this is the most professional (ha!) press release ever. Is Brielle not only Kim's songwriter but her PR rep too?
"The lawsuit led by Kandi Burruss and Rodney Richard aka Don Vito against Kim Zolciak-Biermann over the song 'Tardy For The Party' is without merit and suspicious in its timing," Kim's official statement begins.
Apparently Phaedra is even busier than we imagined! Currently pregnant with her second son, Phaedra is working on a book, her mortuary science degree, a possible spinoff, and is still active in her legal practice. Oh – and she's planning to return to for another season of RHOA! Dang lady, sit. down. Some excerpts are below!
On being portrayed accurately on RHOA, of which she has a remarkably relaxed attitude:
"What you have to realize is that it is television. Television is a medium for entertainment, it’s not a documentary, it’s for entertainment and I think you are definitely entertained," Phaedrashares with Complex.
"It’s an ensemble cast so you’ve got six or seven of us and you’re seeing a limited amount of our time. The show breaks everything down into 10 or 15 minute segments so of course it can’t catch every facet of a person's personality but it is what it is."
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
However Kim just released the promotional photo for her new show on twitter and the premiere date is listed as April 16th – one week later! We confirmed with Bravo's website, which also lists April 16th for the season two premiere!
Kandi's show is still listed as premiering on April 9th, so nothing has changed there! A promo photo for Kandi's new show is below!
Things are getting heated and dangerous in the land of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I cannot wait! Lord knows I love a legal drama!
Kandi Burruss, along with co-writer and co-producer Rodney Richard are suingKim Zolciak for non-payment and improper use of copywritten material over the song "Don't Be Tardy." The suit was filed in federal court.
Well Wigs is not taking any accountability in the matter! Oh Kim… You know if the tables were reversed Kim would hunt Kandi down and waterboard her for that money!
"This is nothing short of a publicity stunt, I find this lawsuit funny yet sad," Kimtold Too Fab. "Coming after me now and this song is 4 years old? I have in fact overpaid Kandi and have documents to prove it and my legal team will handle this accordingly."
Years after the release of Don't Be Tardy For The Party (which also spawned the name of Kim'stwo spinoffs), the original writer of the song Kandi Burruss is suing Kim for nonpayment!
Kandi was shown writing the song on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She also produced the song for Kim. Several times she tried to recoup monies owed to her for both royalties and production/writing fees. Kim made a ton of excuses and then used the money to buy wigs, cigs, and other Kim necessities, like self-tanner and booze.
Construction on Zolciak Manor (aka Kim Zolciak's dream home) is still chugging along!
The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Twitter this week to share the latest updates on her eight-fireplace dream home. Kim also shared some behind-the-scenes shots from the taping of "Don't Be Tardy" and confirmed that she WILL be attending the Atlanta reunion! (Oh this should be good!)
With less than one month until the season 2 debut of her spinoff, Kim shared the above photo from filming day on DBT, "Our 1st two stand ins!! Now we are finally in the chair! I know you love our sweats at the bottom! #rolling". Worth noting: Kroy's toes are painted, too.
What is it with Real Housewives of Atlanta and baby issues? Two seasons ago it was the controversy over Phaedra Parks' very suspect due date. Last season it was black baby gate and this season it is apparently baby NAME gate and the surrounding controversy over who has claim to the name Kash.
Kandi Burruss shared on last week's episode that she always dreamed of a son named Kash, so imagine her surprise when former friend Kim Zolciak announced that her youngest son was named Kash Kade (aka dishsoap) Biermann.
In her Bravo blog, Kandi gives her perspective on the name that apparently everyone wants! Except me. Just for the record, I do not want the name Kash.
