It's been a big few weeks for Real Housewives of Atlanta gossip…some good, some not so good. While the Bravo franchise had the worthy distinction of being the network's most watched show to date, newbie Porsha Stewart faced the news that husband Kordell was filing for divorce. In light of this terrible situation, Porsha did what any good housewife would do. She put on a brave face at the Bravo Upfronts presentation. Kudos to her for trying to maintain some normalcy…or at least what's normal in the life of a reality star!
Meanwhile, Phaedra Parks is looking forward to baby boy number two with husbandApollo Nida. Putting the much talked about Bootygate aside, the lawyer/mortician/over-the-top personality took some time to chat about her latest endeavors…mainly her expanding family. Let's hear the good stuff first!
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.
Don't Be Tardy'sKim Zolciak Biermannis ditching the last few weeks of winter for a sunny vacation with her husband Kroy Biermann and her four children. I can't say I blame her one bit. While sunning and funning, the group is celebrating daughter Brielle's sixteenth birthday which is today. Happy birthday Brielle!
We all know it wouldn't be a Kim getaway if there wasn't a little bit of drama, and this trip was no different. Poor Kim had a luggage mishap, and her most important piece went missing. I'll give you three guesses as to what was inside…and the first two don't count!
In her Bravo Blog, Porsha explains why they made the decision to do it the old-fashioned way and reveals she was shockedKandi Burruss even asked about the matter.
"When Kandi asked me if I had a pre-nup. I was thrown completely off. I really like her and felt comfortable with her, but here I am about to answer a personal question for the world to see. So I just fly out with a no. In my opinion a marriage is a sacred union between two people coming together as one with love being that foundation — being one in mind, body, and spirit. This means I want to agree with my husband and have like minds, I want to bond with him in the flesh (meaning anything that has to do with the natural things, whether it’s a sexual, monetary, or family issue etc.)."
Let's just say the word "built" should be used loosely. According to super sleuths TamaraTattles and TV Fishbowl Kim purchased a home located in The Manor Golf and Country Club in Alpharetta, GA. It's an uber fancy subdivision and golf course where former RHOA star DeShawn Snow's home was also located. DeShawn sold the house following her divorce.
After getting evicted from her dream home, formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak moved back to her "tiny" condo with husband Kroy Biermann and her kids. Since leaving the mansion, Kim and Kroy have been overseeing the construction of their new dream house, which sounds like it will be even bigger and more lavish than the last one.
Kim revealed today that Chez Biermann will feature EIGHT fireplaces. EIGHT. Kim Zolciak needs a lot of heat in her house, y'all. Kim shared on Twitter that she was checking out the new manse, "At the new house freezing our asses off!!!!!!!!!!!" When a fan replied, asking if there were any fireplaces, Kim shared, 8 but our house isn't close to being finished!"
Never a dull moment in the land of wigs and cigs, eh? Kim Zolciak has had one helluva a shitty year. I mean, sure she got a hubby, a spinoff, and a baby out of it, but otherwise it's been bad news blues. An eviction, a possible firing, a public and nasty feud with her parents, and now she apparently owes the IRS big time. Time to pawn some wigs and Versace china, girl.
A source NeNe tells Celeb Dirty Laundry that the formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star is in hot water with the IRS because she hasn't paid taxes in 10 years and owes them $7 million dollars! Um… what? I didn't know being a mistress was considered taxable income. 1099?
The news comes from a "close family member" who shares Kim has been committing tax fraud for years by not paying taxes on "hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts" Big Poppa gave her. Apparently while they were fauxgaged, he was also shelling out a reported $250,000 for her spending allowance. He also unsuccessfully tried to limit her spending to $150,000 per month.
