On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta the husbands brought the catty as the wives instigated from afar. Kim had a wedding prequel in the form of her baby shower and Sheree started work on her new job building her dream house and I’m counting down the minutes until foreclosure.
Sheree arrives at the building site for Chateau Sheree to watch the demo of the original house built in 1975, practically before she was born. Really Sheree? Someone needs to check you, Boo! BTW: nice “workboots.” Poor Sheree tells us that overseeing the construction of her new home is so much work it’s like a another job – as if she needs one! Leaving all of us to wonder what exactly are Sheree’s other jobs? Being a Housewife? Divorce settlements? Sheree makes sure the contractor has her list of “necessities,” which include: a ballroom with skating rink, a DJ booth, a massage parlor and a library or liberry – even though she doesn’t read. Hopefully she can read the notices of foreclosure that I anticipate will be arriving shortly! Kidding, kidding… only sort of…

In Cynthia’s Bravo blog, she tries to keep it classy, while still getting in some passive aggressive insults. “I did not attend Kim’s birthday party, because I was not invited,” she say. “We really don’t know each other that well, so it was no surprise not to get an invite. Those special moments should be reserved for your closest friends and family. I can respect that, and I wish her a happy birthday all the same.” Sounds nice enough, right?
Of course, she doesn’t end there, continuing, “I was a little surprised that on such a joyous occasion my name even came up. I thought the way the girls talked about NeNe was mean and offensive. The use of the B word and speaking in such a negative manner in front of children at a birthday celebration was just irresponsible. Where was the eating cake and ice cream and opening presents?” Mee and yow.
Referring to a comment made by the dance tune diva, Cynthia defends herself, saying, “Kim doesn’t seem to think I have a backbone, because I’m friends with NeNe. I have enough of a backbone to respect the union of marriage and not date another woman’s husband. Or did we forget about that? I really don’t understand why NeNe and Kim’s breakup has anything to do with me. I don’t have an issue with Kim. Or any of the other girls for that matter.”
And just to put the icing on the recently married Kim’s wedding cake, Cynthia ends her blog with a bang, stating, “At the end of the day, it’s so easy to be nasty, and that takes very little effort and zero talent.” It seems it truly is easy to be nasty… all you need is a blog! She sums her sentiments with a nicely veiled dig.
“I thought new love and pregnancy were happy times where you embrace life and positivity,” Cynthia muses. “Motherhood is beautiful, and being in love is the cherry on top! Rest assured, I have a backbone and very beautiful cheek bones to go with it. Enjoy your wonderful blessings and I will enjoy mine.”
Now you know Kim isn’t going to sit quietly, she did what anyone would do… calmly and privately talk to Cynthia about her hurt feelings take to Twitter! Kim fires back at her co-star’s blog, tweeting, “I wish Cynthia would STFU why is she talking about my relationship that was over 2 plus years ago!! I’m now a wife! #runawaybride4xs.”
Kim’sblog also takes shots at Cynthia, so there is some fun tit for tat going on in Bravoland. Acknowledging her recent nuptials, she begins, “As you all I know, I married Kroy on 11/11/11! I am the happiest I have ever been and feel so blessed to have found such a wonderful man. My girls are over the moon.”
Getting that piece of housekeeping out of the way, Kim spends the rest of her blog on her favorite subjects… her castmates. She exclaims, “Cynthia barely knows NeNe! Cynthia hasn’t seen her true colors. But in due time, NeNe’s going to snap at Cynthia just like she has with everyone else. NeNe’s acting is going to wear off eventually. Did NeNe say, ‘Kim and Sheree are hating on me’? What is there to hate on? Please let me know.”
Speaking of Cynthia and NeNe’s budding friendship, Kim continues, “Cynthiawants to stick up for NeNe all day long, because she knows if she doesn’t she could get attacked and her friendship contract would be revoked.” Did she really just go there? Loves it!
Taking offense to a comment made in Miami, Kim responds, “And Cynthia, why are you still talking about DJ Tracy? I’m married with a newborn! Why is my relationship with Tracy still on your mind? Seriously, find yourself some business or better yet, work on your own marriage.” Wowsers. Well, Kim never was one for subtlety.
On tonight’s episode, Kim throws a Phaedra-sized (read massive) baby shower for Kroy, and two of the househusbands get into a tiff. Sheree’s home is under construction and NeNe helps her youngest son deal with her split from Gregg. Watch a preview below.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM AND CYNTHIA’S FEUD? WHO’S SIDE ARE YOU ON? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
For starters, Kim’s three dress changes totaled $92,000, though Kim has stated her main wedding dress, in the above picture, was used. The $58,000 pre-owned, handmade Baracci gown made of Duchess satin was also embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and embroidered lace.
“We spared no expense, you only do this once,” Kim, who’s on her second marriage, told Life & Style. “This is it for me. It’s very expensive but we’re in a position where we’re able to do that and I’m thankful for that.”
Kim, 33, and Kroy, 26, also spent $14,000 on their 11-layered cake! More photos from Kim’s wedding are below!
In other Kim news, Bravo has finally confirmed today that she does indeed have her own spinoff show coming soon! The title? The ever so clever ‘Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding.’ The network promises the docu-series will chronicle Kim’s extravagant wedding.
The press release reads: “Each thirty minute episode will follow the adventures of Kim preparing for her wedding on the lucky date of 11/11/11. With less than 2 months to plan, she enlists celebrity event planner Colin Cowie to help design a dream wedding in her brand new multi-million dollar home. The pressure is on as Kim rushes to find a dress, lose remaining baby weight and cosmetically enhance trouble spots. With the date quickly approaching, problems mount– her invitation is leaked to the press and her mother refuses to attend the wedding. Still, Kim is determined to marry Kroy and won’t let anything ruin her perfect day.”
As for Kim, she reveals she is excited about the new show. “I am so excited to give an up close and personal look at the next chapter in my life,” Kim said. “My life has turned into a true Cinderella story and to watch the pieces unfold is going to be great! I can’t wait to share with all of you!”
“Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding” is expected to premiere on Bravo in 2012.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia have an all-girls weekend in Miami and I mean allll girls as it turns out to be lesbian pride weekend. Kim celebrates her 43rd 33rd birthday with a surprise party and Phaedra learns more about the mortuary business — like her husband Apollo is not down with owning a funeral home!
Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia are headed to Miami. Kandi is surprised she was invited since NeNe has never really liked her and all. NeNe probably thinks Kandi is on the outs with Kim over Tardy For The Party and is hoping to recruit her for Team N. Bravo gives us a little flashback of last year’s RHOA trip to Miami and it involved neck snappin’ and eyeball poppin’! When the ladies arrive at the incredibly posh hotel they are greeted with cocktails. My kinda place – and NeNe’s (she announces she lives for a cocktail)!

Life & Style magazine, which got exclusive rights to Kim’s wedding pics, released the picture (above) of Kim with her new NFL husband Kroy Biermann.
Kim, 33, tied the knot with Kroy, 26, on Friday in front of their closest family and friends. “I just remember thinking, this is the day I’ve waited my whole life for,” Kim tells Life & Style. “I really do feel like I’m dreaming.”
Kim wore a $58,000 pre-owned, handmade Baracci gown made of Duchess satin and embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and embroidered lace. Yes, you read that right, it was a used wedding dress.
This marks the second marriage for Kim and the first for Kroy. Kim has two daughters from a previous relationship and a previous marriage. Life & Style promises more exclusive images and details from Kim’s wedding in their next issue.
Meanwhile, Kim took some time off her newlywed bliss today to fire back at her castmate Nene Leakes for the comments she made about her daughters! On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Nene stated Kim now had three kids by three different men!
Kim tweeted about Nene: “Real cute how Nene loves 2 talk abt my kids she needs to worry abt keeping hers out of jail!” Ouch!
When a user tweeted this to Kim: @Kimzolciak don’t NeNe’s kids have different dads? Just saying… No one should forget where THEY came from, Kim responded with, “Exactly! Pot calling the kettle.”

UPDATE – Another photo of Kim and Kroy on their wedding day is below!
11/11/11…if you’re Kim Zolciak you probably wished for a fairy tale wedding, which is exactly what the Real Housewives of Atlanta star got yesterday when she married Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann at a lavish ceremony in Atlanta. Who was on hand to help her celebrate? A slew of Bravolebrities and a famous blogger (no, no one from here at RT unfortunately :)).
While there has been no confirmation yet regarding the attendance of her fellow cast mates, one could place bets that a few of the RHOA ladies were there to throw rice and raise a toast. Kim’s once wig-tugging friend Sheree Whitfield, her producer rainmaker songwriter pal Kandi Burruss who sort of helped her a little with her “Tardy for the Party” hit and fellow over-the-top soiree throwing Phaedra Parks were likely on hand to watch Kim and Kroy’s nuptials.
It’s more questionable that Cynthia Bailey received an invitation given the ladies tense friendship, but stranger things have happened. As for NeNe Leakes, Kim’s former BFF, it’s safe to say she would probably rather get stuck in an elevator with Star Jones and LaToya Jackson than watch her nemesis walk down the aisle.
Also on hand from Bravo was everyone’s favorite (ahem) matchmaker Patti Stanger, who tweeted, “Hanging in ATL @doubletree with my bestie Jackie from @life_and_style as we prepare for @Kimzolciak’s wedding…we are so excited! X0” Perhaps she was able to drum up some new “clients” at the reception. She later updated her Twitter to say, “No phones allowed at @Kimzolciak’s wedding, so no tweeting/photos, I will give you the fun facts after. X0.”
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was also Twittering from the ATL about the big event, saying, “@KimzolciakSo happy to be here to celebrate your special day with you! Much love, happiness, peace and health!!! xoxo ” Perhaps my invitation got lost in the mail?
Even celebrity event planner Colin Cowie took to Twitterverse about his role in the whole to-do. He stated, “Stunning bride, handsome groom — a super glam and chic affair!” Wait, what? D-wight Eubanks wasn’t the wedding planner? For shame!
Not one to be out-tweeted on her own wedding day, Kim gave a shout out to the bakery that made the couple’s cake. She exclaimed, “Omg thank you Highland Bakery for my amazing wedding cake! Absolutely breathtaking I cried when I saw it! It is exactly what I wanted!!!” I hope that crying didn’t mess up her make-up!
Without a doubt, Kim’s two daughters from her first marriage — thirteen-year-old Brielle and nine-year-old Ariana — were a huge part of Kim’s big day. Kim also has a baby boy with her new groom, Kroy Jagger, or K.J. as his infant friends call him.
Kim herself was on cloud nine on her wedding day, telling Life & Style, “This has been the happiest day of my life. It’s been perfect. It’s been a dream come true.” Of her brand new hubby, she gushes, “He makes me a better person. I love everything about him.” Awww…. Best wishes to the happy couple!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S NUPTIALS? WHO OF HER CASTMATES DO YOU THINK WERE IN ATTENDANCE?
Last Sunday’s premiere episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta may have left some fans disappointed, but according to the Nielsen Ratings it was the “highest rated season premiere in series history”!
Over 2.9 million people tuned in to watch NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield engage in “toof wars” (thanks RT commentariat for coming up with that one!) and was the number one watched “unscripted cable telecast” (re: reality TV) on Sunday night. Additionally, it was the most watched season premiere in Real Housewives history! Hotlanta truly lives up to its name!
The season is about to get much more dramatic, according to Bravo, as the ladies embark on a safari adventure and continue to settle the score. However, filming was far from easy as the Huffington Post is reporting that Kim Zolciak and her former BFFL NeNe refused to speak!
“Nene and Kim refused to film a single scene together this season,” an insider reveals. “For 14 weeks we will watch the show play out where its two breakout stars refuse to talk to each other.” Wow! If you were expecting a sit-down to hash out their differences, expect otherwise.
“Producers begged the two ladies to film a scene together. They wanted them to sit down on camera and talk about what went wrong like they did on the New York version of the show with Bethenny [Frankel] and Jill [Zarin],” a friend of NeNe’s detailed. Do NeNe and friend belong in the same sentence?
“But unlike Jill, Nene wouldn’t fall for it. She knew she was being set up. Nene knows that Bravo is developing a spin off show for Kim and would edit Kim to be more sympathetic to set up her new show. So she refused to be part of any of it.” Ok, don’t hate me for saying it, but I think NeNe was smart for refusing to partake. She knows she can’t keep her cool in situations like that and it pretty much ruined Jill’s reputation after she tried in vain to recapture her friendship with Bethenny following a season of bad blood. Well, there’s always the reunion!
In other Kim news, her 11-11-11 nuptials to fiancé Kroy Biermann will be happening this Friday, and the second tackiest wedding of the year — second to Kim Kardashian, of course — is soon to be deluging us with photos of the event. Despite the similarities between the two Kims (both marrying much-younger athletes) Kim Z promises her Made For TV wedding is nothing like Kim K’s! “If I doubted my marriage to Kroy even 1 percent, I would never do it,” she insisted.
“I hate it that Kim’s going through what she’s going through,” Kim says in an interview, sympathizing with Kim K. “It’s hard, I mean it is hard to be in the press and have your relationship dissected. It’s unfortunate, but Kim and Kroy are not Kim and Kris.” Thankfully…
Revealing that she has been filming “behind-the-scenes stuff” (aka her new spin-off?), Kim is quick to point out that Bravo never forced her to televise the event. Kim claims the network was more than happy to accommodate any requests she had related to filming and put no “pressure” on her to share more than she wanted to. Kim has stated in previous interviews that we will not see her giving birth!
Well, here’s hoping Kim and Kroy’s marriage lasts longer than 72-days because while I can handle two Kims’ fantasy weddings, I’m not sure I can take two Kims’ fantasy divorces!
ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE RHOA RATINGS? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM AND NENE WILL RECONCILE AT SOME POINT? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S WEDDING AND POTENTIAL SPIN-OFF?
Oh, Real Housewives of Atlanta how I missed your crazy ways! It’s a new season… with the same intros? Bravo? What’s up with that!? On last night’s season premiere episode Kim prepared for her new life with Kroy and KJ, NeNe and Sheree got crazy, Phaedra found her new calling, Cynthia debuted The Bailey Agency and Kandi well… she was vibrating with excitement over a new business venture.
Things start out with a super prego Kim — and I think her wig is getting bigger as her bump grows — along with Sweetie and Kroy cleaning out her storage unit. Apparently, Kim and Kroy are moving into her dream home and she is planning to fill it with all the furniture Big Poppa paid for! While Kim sits in the car and drinks a slurpy, Kroy does all the heavy lifting. Kim seems happy yet warns Kroy he better not hurt his money maker hauling Big Poppa’s furniture around – she needs his booty to bring home those checks! She still can’t get over his booty either! Is Kroy a stripper or her boyfriend? Kim reflects on the differences between Big Poppa and Kroy: Big Poppa wouldn’t move a tissue, Kroy is a real man who lifts other man’s furniture, Big Poppa was married and Kroy isn’t, oh and Kroy’s ring is going to mean a thing! I missed Kim’s trashy!
