Kim, who is expecting child #3 with NFL player beau Kroy Beirmann, is said to have had an “extravagant” baby shower according to the TalkingWithTami blog. She wore a Rafael Cennamo dress with Guiseppe Stilettos at the baby shower which took place at the Grand Atrium in downtown Atlanta.
In attendance were Kim’s costarsKandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and her hubbyApollo Nida, Kim’s assistant Sweetie Hughes. Also in attendance but not pictured were Sheree Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey. Not in attendance of course was Kim’s frenemy Nene Leakes who publicly stated last month that she is “not interested in seeing the baby, and I have no plans to send a gift.”
As for Kim, it seems she is unhappy with the release of these photos as she tweeted yesterday, “Wow I invite a “friend” to the shower and she releases pics to the press!! Unreal! Several others cud of but haven’t.”

It seems things continue to get serious between Kim Zolciak, 32, and her baby daddy to be/NFL player beau Kroy Biermann, 25.
Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta,revealed in Life & Style two weeks ago that following 10 months of dating, she and Kroy were planning to move in together in preparation for the Spring arrival of their unborn son.
And this week on twitter, Kim’s 14-year-old daughter Brielle Zolciak let it slip that her mom and Kroy were looking to buy a certain $3.25 million, 11,000 sq. ft. mansion in Duluth, Georgia. A major upgrade from Kim’s previous 3,396 square foot townhouse, that has been featured on the Bravo show and is currently listed for sale at $499,000. In fact, Brielle linked to the home on her Formspring page stating “”newwww house.” She has since deleted the post.
Kim also tweeted Thursday morning, “Fingers crossed this house deal works out and they accept our offer!!!!!! <— another reason I can’t sleep! Lol.” And when fans wished her luck on the new home, she replied, “Hopefully they accept our offer.”
The home listing shows it sits on a 2-acre estate at the listing price of $3,250,000. The 11,066 square foot brick residence has 7 bedrooms, 6 full and 4 half bathrooms, 3 full kitchens, 2 laundry rooms, 1 media room that seats 30 people, and a four-car garage. The home also boasts a swimming pool, and an outdoor basketball court.
Pictures of the home exterior and interior are below. Brielle also revealed on her Formspring page that Kim’s assistant Sweetie Hughes is gay. When asked about her thoughts on gay marriage, Brielle replied – “my best friends gay, my moms assitant, hairstylists, andd everyone my life revolves around is gay. what do u thinkk?” When another fan asks her if Sweetie is gay, she responded, “Thats beside the point.” Days later, both postings are still up so there’s a good chance it wasn’t meant to be a secret.
And finally, according to a NFL salary report via USA TODAY, Kroy earned $392,280 for his 2009 season with the Atlanta Falcons. While Sportscity reports Kroy earned $470,000 for his 2010 season, and is scheduled to earn $555,000 for his 2011 season albeit he doesn’t get cut from the team. As for Kim, she and her Atlanta Housewives costars reportedly earned $150,000 each for their 3rd season.
Good luck to Kim. Here’s to hoping this home purchase doesn’t end up similar to that of Sheree/Alexis/Peggy/[Feel Free To Insert Your Own Bravo Housewife Here], etc.

Kim made the revelation on her twitter page yesterday after seemingly tweeting the sex of her baby by error. “I haven’t had the baby yet!! I’m due in June! But he is getting big in my belly ” tweeted Kim.
Realizing she had revealed the gender of her baby, she later tweeted — “Ya all are right!!! I can’t believe it I messed up tweetin YES @biermann71 and I are happy to announce we are a having a baby BOY!!!” Congrats to Kim and Kroy. She is due in June.
In other news, today is the Oscars and yes Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will be helping to co-host the pre-show for the CNN network.
This is an open post, so please feel free to comment about Kim, Camille, the Oscars or whatever is on your mind!
For starters, Sweetie was the so called “reason” for the big tour bus fight that ensued this season involving former BFFs Kim and Nene Leakes. Nene made a big stink on the bus, claiming she had a problem with the way Kim treated Sweetie, only to turn around and call Sweetie a slave to her face – more than once.
Since the airing of that episode, Sweetie continues to feel the brunt of Nene’s words and actions as Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on Feb. 16 after Nene called his morning show.
“They’re doing it for Black History Month, and it offends me,” Sweetie tells Life & Style. “They have pastors calling into the radio station and praying for me. They’ve taken it too far. NeNe’s jealous that she’s not as close to Kim as I am. I’ve known Kim for 11 years, since I was a kid. Kim’s a great friend to me. NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”
Kim also spoke to the mag about the Sweetie situation. “I never want to speak to NeNe again. My assistant Sweetie is so upset about the whole thing, she’s beside herself,” Kim tells Life & Style. “NeNe has problems.”
In other Kim news, we now have more of her interview with Life & Style magazine, in which she talks about her unborn baby and “amazing” sex life with 25-year-old dummy baby’s daddy to be Kroy Biermann.
“The baby’s fine — no complications or problems, thank God. I was pretty nauseous in the first trimester,” Kim tells the mag. “Now I drink Perrier all day — it’s the best ever and keeps me from the nausea. But, I am exhausted. We just went to Anguilla for 10 days, and I slept my butt off!”
And how much weight has Kim gained? “I don’t step on the scale, but I’d say I’ve gained about 20 pounds. I gained 30 with my first and 28 with my second.”
When it comes to how pregnancy has affected her sex life, Kim dishes to Life & Style: “It’s amazing! We’re in a really good place. Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful. He’s really cute about it, and it definitely makes it a lot easier on me.” Good to know Kim. Good to know.

The six months pregnantReal Housewives of Atlantastar dons a bikini to show off her growing baby bump. Kim reveals to the mag that she is drama-free and happier than ever during the bump-revealing photo shoot with Life & Style on Feb. 20.
Kim also opens up about her belly, her baby’s daddy to be Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, 25, whom she’s been dating since May, and the possibility of another baby in their future.
“I’ll be 33 when I have this baby, and I’m more in touch with my body now,” she tells Life & Style. Kim, who already has two daughters, Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage, says she’s gained about 20 pounds so far. “I’m definitely eating a lot more now than I did with my girls.” Not that she — or her man Kroy — minds a little extra weight. “Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful.”
Following nearly 10 months of dating, Kim reveals she and Kroy are finally moving in together in Atlanta, just in time for their newborn’s June arrival. “We’ll be moved in before the baby is born,” she says.
So are wedding bells in the near future? “Kroy’s perfect for me, but we’re not engaged,” Kim tells Life & Style. “If we get married, Kroy would like to have one more child, and I want one too!”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KIM’S NEW BABY BUMP PHOTO & INTERVIEW?
Following a very successful 3rd season, regaining its title as the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise, tonight marks the finale of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!
On the episode titled ‘The Bride and the Doom,’ season 3 closes with Cynthia’s wedding rapidly approaching, but jitters and dramas surround the big event. Elsewhere, Phaedra returns to work; Sheree’s acting ability is sorely tested during a movie audition; and Kandi approaches Kim about song-related finances.
According to a NY Post report that came out last July, days after the wedding, Cynthia Bailey’s BFF Nene Leakes supposedly held up the wedding for 45 minutes when she barged into Cynthia’s bridal suite and demanded her hair and makeup be done. The Post added the drama did not end there as Kim then got into an argument with boyfriend Kroy when she caught him checking out “a hot redhead.” It will be interesting to see if any of these stories make the finale episode tonight.
And finally, wedding photos of Cynthia and Peter Thomas are below. The super sized 1 hour 30 minute episode airs at 10/9c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – On tonight’s show, Andy Cohen will throw a live baby shower for the pregnant Kim Zolciak. Joining Kim will be her baby daddy to be/NFL player Kroy Biermann.
A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below!

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 and Kroy are engaged, and only a few people know about it,” a source confirms to Radar. As for why Kim, 32, is keeping it a secret, it all has to do with dollars (doesn’t it always with Kim?). “They wanted to announce it in a national magazine, but Kim was so excited that she told a couple of close friends about it.”
The insider also adds that Kroy bought Kim a “substantial” ring that she has shown to a few friends, though she is not wearing it in public.
And when it comes to their supposed spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel who’s show was also based on her pregnancy and upcoming nuptials, it seems that is still on the table. “Kim is actually in her second trimester with her pregnancy now, and the couple are still in talks about getting their own spin-off reality show,” adds the source.
Kim and Kroy, 25, have been together for a total of six months. Kim has yet to confirm the engagement, but we’re guessing she will likely do it the same way she did her pregnancy– by selling the story to a tabloid.
In other Kim news, the RealEstalker is reporting that Kim has put her Atlanta town home up for sale. In fact, the home listing on realtor.com has photos of Kim in her home. It seems Kim is hoping to capitalize on her Bravo fame as the listing states the home belongs to a Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
The home is listed as 3396 sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The price is $499,999. Kim reportedly purchased the home back in 2006 for $486,000. Photos of Kim’s home below.
Kim has also responded to the TMZ story that showed her smoking a cigarette 3 weeks ago while being two months pregnant. She tweeted, “Please don’t believe all u read! I woke up to some more BS in the press!! Imagine that?!!” She then added that though “it’s pretty hard to argue with a photo,” the picture “was taken 2 months ago.” Sure it was.

UPDATE – Kim Zolciak’s rep is now denying the engagement news to PEOPLE magazine.”She is definitely not engaged at this time,” her rep insists. Hard to believe since Kim has an history of denying things only to appear on a magazine cover the next day admitting to the said things.
