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.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW AND DJ TRACY’S TWEETS?
“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.
Kim Zolciakhas done quite a bit over the years to shock and awe viewers of the Real Housewives of Atlanta both on and off the TV screen, but the above picture will arguably be her most shocking act to date.
Kim, 32, graced this week’s cover of Life & Style magazine confirming that she is pregnant and 3 months along. However, TMZ is reporting today that the above photo of Kim was taken just 3 weeks ago on Nov. 7 outside the Georgia Dome.
She reportedly took a smoke break while watching her NFL boyfriend and father of her unborn child Kroy Biermann, 25, play football.
And unfortunately for Kim, she cannot use the argument that she didn’t know she was pregnant when she decided to smoke 3 weeks ago as she confirmed to Life & Style magazine that she didn’t want to announce her pregnancy in October because she wasn’t through her first trimester.
According to WebMD, below are just some of the effects smoking while pregnant has on the baby -
Lower the amount of oxygen available to you and your growing baby.
Increase the chances of miscarriage and stillbirth.
Increase the risk that your baby is born prematurely and/or born with low birth weight.
Increase your baby’s risk of developing respiratory (lung) problems
Smoking while pregnant can also have lifelong effects on a baby’s brain. Children of pregnant smokers are especially likely to have learning disorders, behavioral problems, and relatively low IQs.
And oh yeah, Kim’s used to be a nurse. She even stated on the most recent episode of the Atlanta Housewives that she worked in labor and delivery. Sad.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? ARE YOU SHOCKED?
According to Radar, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star who recently announced her three months pregnancy with NFL dummy boyfriend Kroy Biermann, would like her reality show to showcase her wedding and new baby, though she’s yet to be engaged.
“Although the pregnancy was not planned they are ‘thrilled’ about the news,” a source tells Radar. “Kroy really loves Kim and he wants to get married before she has her baby and that is something that she would be happy to do.”
The source adds that Kim, 32, is seeing this whole pregnancy thingy as a means to earn dollars! “Kim knows that having this baby represents a great opportunity and she is already in talks about her own reality show spin-off starring Kroy.” Perhaps Kimmy is on to something. Having a baby did seem to work wonders for Bethenny’s brand.
“Obviously, this would represent a real problem for Real Housewives of Atlanta because they wanted her baby and any wedding for their show, so, at the end of the day; it will all come down to money,” states the source. It gets even better as Kim reportedly believes her show will be a hit because “she already has a big fan base and [Kroy] does as well because he is a NFL player with the Atlanta Falcons.”
The source, which might or might not be Kim herself, also tells Radar that co-star Nene Leakes is not happy about Kim’s pregnancy news. “In public NeNe is supporting Kim but in private she has told some people she believes that Kim got pregnant on purpose. For whatever reason – NeNe’s nose is a little out of joint over this.”
Also the Life & Style magazine article states that both of Kim’s daughters Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, are from a previous marriage, though there have always been rumblings that the girls have different dads. If true, this means Kim would have 3 children by 3 different men. It is however a fact that at age 17, Kim had an affair with Windsor Locks Connecticut Police Sergeant John MacDougald (a 24 year veteran of the force) that ultimately resulted in his firing. The affair became public knowledge when she was 19.
What we also know is that Kim married her ex-husband Daniel Toce in 2001 and divorced him in 2003. Kim, who might or might not be a pathological liar, had claimed in the past that she married her high school sweetheart but Daniel is 37 and 5 years older than Kim so we’re not exactly sure how that would make them high school sweethearts.
Also, Daniel’s father, Daniel Toce Sr, is said to be a multi millionaire, with some reports stating he is a billionaire. It was reported a while back that Kim gets over $30,000 in monthly child support payments with $250,000 a year in alimony payments though Kim told Life&Style last year that she receives no child support or alimony from her ex. Hard to believe a gold digger would not take her ex to court for child support but that’s what Kim is claiming.
Just less than 24 hours after issuing a non denial on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Kim Zolciak is now confirming she is indeed pregnant in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star graces the magazine cover under the title, ‘Yes, I’m Pregnant!’ The baby daddy? Her 25-year-old NFL boyfriend Kroy Biermann. The two met in May and have been dating for six months.
“I was surprised! While it wasn’t planned, God clearly has a bigger and better plan for us and we’re excited,” the 32-year-old tells Life & Style.
And when it comes to the Star magazine news story that ran in October, during which her lady ex DJ Tracy Young spilled the beans about her pregnancy, Kim makes it clear she was shocked and appalled about the story. “I was appalled and disgusted by that. I wasn’t through my first trimester — you never know what could happen.”
But today, Kim is three months pregnant and tells the mag “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.” This will make the third child for Kim as she has two daughters, Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage.
When it comes to the sex of the baby, Kim shares that she and Kroy have yet to find out while adding that she cannot wait to start a family with him. “I definitely don’t want to get married while I’m pregnant,” she says. “But I can see myself marrying Kroy in the future.”
Nice to see Kim trapping snagging her man the old fashioned way. Guess you can’t teach an old whore new tricks. And feel free to mark your calendars! Kim’s new single, “Google Me,” will be available for download on iTunes on Nov. 30.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KIM’S PREGNANCY? IS KROY THE DUMBEST 25-YEAR-OLD EVER?
UPDATE – A bigger image of Kim and her baby daddy Kroy added below.
Tonight’s upcoming episode titled, ‘She Can Dance?‘ will focus on Miss She By Sheree as she decides to participate in “The Dancing Stars of Atlanta”! And tensions will rise once again when Kim and Kandi confront each other for the first time over Kandi’s latest song for Kim.
Then finally, the big moment is here for Cynthia when her long-term boyfriend Peter decides to pop the question and enlists NeNe to help execute the special moment – will Cynthia say yes to marriage? This is also the episode during which Kim will meet her new beau/rumored soon to be baby’s daddy/NFL Player Kroy Biermann.
The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
In other Atlanta news, TMZ is reporting that Sheree Whitfield owes yet another person money. Remember it was reported just last week that Sheree had her Aston Martin vehicle seized as a means of recouping the $110,000 she owed one of her attorneys.
Well it’s a new day and according to TMZ, Sheree is now being accused of stiffing a private investigator named Dwayne Alexander who she hired back in 2005 to dig up dirt on her then-husband, ex-NFL star Bob Whitfield.
A court order reveals she owes Alexander $28,858.93 for his services and interest. Alexander has reportedly fired off a letter to Bravo stating he plans to garnish Sheree’s wages from the show to settle the debt. Sheree’s lawyer however tells TMZ Alexander’s judgment is “void” and that he has no legal standing to try and garnish her earnings.

The source of the story? None other than her ex-girlfriend DJ Tracy Young. Tracy tells the mag that Kim, 32, is pregnant by NFL boyfriend Kroy Biermann, 25, whom she has been dating since May. And in an odd twist, DJ Tracy reveals that Kim asked her to raise the baby together and then dumped her.
Tracy says she flew to Atlanta earlier this month to be with Kim, four months after their break-up. “She said she still loved me and wanted to tell me something important face to face,” Tracy tellsStar. Kim then dropped the pregnancy bombshell. “When I asked her what she was going to do, she said, ‘I want you to stay and raise the baby with me, because Kroy doesn’t want to be involved.’”
Tracy adds that Kim took a gender test the next day which revealed she was having a boy. The Star magazine issue even has a photo of a well made up Kim holding up a small container with the word “BOY” written on it. According to Tracy, Kim then had a sudden change of heart just two days after the announcement as Kroy was now back in the picture.
Attention Whore Kim has since taken to her twitter page to issue a non-denial statement: “LMAO at Star magazine article!! Hilarious!” she tweeted. “People will do anything for fame!!! Crackin up over here, Gotta love it ”
Our take on this? Whether this pregnancy story is true or bogus, Kim is likely in on it and getting a cut of Tracy’s check from Star magazine. Also in the issue is a photo of Kim’s real hair. That picture is below. You can click on it to make it bigger.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE KIM IS PREGNANT?
UPDATE – A photo of Kim holding up her gender test result is below. DJ Tracy also tells Star she witnessed Kim taking several pregnancy tests. “While I was staying at her house in Atlanta, I watched Kim do numerous pregnancy tests all of which came back positive,” Tracy tells Star. “For her to deny it is ridiculous but it doesn’t surprise me in the least. It’s typical Kim with an agenda.”
