Ohhh.. snap! The infamous Big Poppa, aka Lee Najjar, the (still) married sugar daddy to Kim Zolciak has been arrested, y'all! I love me some juicy gossip and it doesn't get anymore juicy than this.
While Kim and her Biermann fam are still safely ensconced in the Atlanta condo Poppa purchased for her, Big Poppa was arrested in Fulton Co, GA on November 6. The charges are unknown and he was released on an undisclosed bail amount, according to TMZ.
Episode 12 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta brought us spa confrontations, Kim singing, and Nene snagging a huge/astronomical celebrity interview but the best part of Sunday night might have just beenPhaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida’s appearance on WWHL, during which Apollo claimed he was 4 years younger than Phaedra. In this recap, I set the record straight on that while touching on whether or not Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar is broke and in foreclosure. Will also briefly touch which Bravo housewives I strongly dislike. They are now 5 by the way. Would also like to know which housewives you all despise dislike the most. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!
The episode begins with Kandi Burruss(who’s album Kandi Koatedis in stores now – a nice album) rehearsing for her upcoming promo tour, which is a week away. The best part of this rehearsal is when Kim shows up to show Kandi what her performance will look like. Once again, Kim whines, complains before showing off her lazy performance routine to go along with the bad singing. Here’s a tip for Kandi – have her lip sync. Kandi is not too pleased with Kim’s laziness but doesn’t have time to dedicate to Kim as she also has to focus on her own performances. Kandi wants Kim “to pull it together.”

A source told Radar the situation was complicated because Kim is still involved with ‘Big Poppa. The source continued, “He’s still married and he has played a big part in Kim’s life in recent years and she owes him a lot. She even has his initials ‘LN’ inked on her ring finger.” The source also revealed Big Poppa is a real estate tycoon with connections in the music industry, and is helping Kim make her music nightmares dreams come true.
Fast forward to a few days later, and RadarOnline is now reportingTracy has dumped Kim because she feels Kin is unwilling to totally commit to her.
Apparently Tracy was tired of Kim going back and forth between her and Big Poppa. “Tracey is about to move from Los Angeles to New York and she wanted Kim to make more of a commitment but she was unwilling to do so and they have broken up as a result,” the source added. “They are trying to remain friends but it looks like a long-term relationship between the pair is not going to pan out.”
Hmm, wonder who is leaking these exclusive stories to RadarOnline. Kim also tweeted this morning, revealing she begins filming the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta today. Her love life will reportedly play a big story line.
Kim gave an exclusive interview to Life&Style magazine in which she admits she is bisexual. She also appears on this week’s cover of the magazine.
This is all the more interesting considering Kim denied having a romantic relationship with DJ Tracy just this month, even telling numerous media outlets that she was back with the still married Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar.
According to Kim, the reason she lied about denied her relationship with DJ Tracy was because she wasn’t ready to come out. We can only hope Tracy is well aware of Kim’s pathological ways.
Excerpts from Kim’s interview with Life&Style is below -
L&S: Can you pinpoint the moment when things became romantic? Kim: There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.
L&S: Were you ever tempted to deny your relationship with Tracy? Kim: No. I’ve never denied anything. I don’t lie. I’m not embarrassed by anything I’ve ever done in my life. But I wasn’t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadn’t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.
L&S: Do you feel you’re giving a voice to other bisexual parents? Kim: I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me.

It seems Kim Zolciak has decided she no longer needs the recent publicity she’s been receiving, and has now decided to come out and deny a lesbian relationship withDJ Tracy Young.
The interesting thing is the lesbian relationship rumors only started because of Kim’s doing. She was the one who insinuated she was dating the DJ back in December.
However, Kim has now decided to set the record straight. TMZ caught up with the Real Housewives of Atlanta star this week during which she denied the relationship. “Tracy’s a great friend of mine… I take pictures with a lot of girls,” said Kim. She’s “a great friend, I adore her” … just not in that way continued Kim.
According to their source, “Tracy broke up with her longtime girlfriend to be with Kim. Since they’ve been together, Tracy lost a lot of weight and got really skinny for Kim. They seem to be beyond happy with each other.”
Their other source for the story? Well it was none other than Simon van Kempen(who is married to Alex McCord) of the Real Housewives of NYC. “The rumor is that Kim Zolciak will come out this season,” he told Us at the Season 3 screening party in NYC.
In Simon’s defense, he did use the word “rumor.” However, Kim didn’t take too well to this story or Simon giving his input. She took to her twitter page and posted the following just hours after UsWeekly ran the story, “WOW…who the hell is Simon van Kempen? Talking abt me in US weekly. Give me a break…Get ur facts straights, Never met that man in my life.”
But what Kim, 31, didn’t do is deny the story. In fact, she has yet to publicly deny dating DJ Tracy Young, or even deny being a lesbian. Another report from entertainment reporter, Marc Malkin of E! News, also claims Kim is indeed dating DJ Tracy. According to Marc, his sources also confirm to him that Kim has been dating Tracy for 3 months.
Some people who are not buying Kim’s new relationship are apparently some Bravo execs who feel Kim decided to “become gay” because having a juicy storyline could help her in negotiations. As we reported, Kim is still negotating with Bravo for more money to do the 3rd season.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK KIM’S NEW RELATIONSHIP IS REAL OR JUST A PUBLICITY STUNT?
Kim recently performed at the Splash Bar in New York City. In between her performances (yes she performed more than once) Kim announced that she is “with someone” and “happier than ever”. Bravo Sr. Vice President of Programming Andy Cohen, who was also at the event, joined Kim on stage and asked her who the lucky guy was. To which Kim answered, “who said it was a man?”
This of course led others to believe she was referring to a woman. Kim was then seen spending some time giggling and cuddling backstage with the woman above, who introduced herself as DJ Tracy Young.
Apparently, DJ Tracy is also loaded. Dina Manzo of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was also at the event.

Kandi Burruss also revealed that Bravo is currently negotiating with all five ladies for season three. Nene Leakes revealed earlier this year that the ladies were each paid $100,000 to film the second season. That amount should go up as the Atlanta housewives have brought in the highest ratings ever to the housewives franchise.
They averaged 2.8 million viewers per episode. You can compare that to the 1.8 million viewers the Real Housewives of Orange County received for their last episode.
Lisa Wu Hartwell, Kandi Burruss & Kim Zolciak
In other news, Kandi Burruss celebrated the opening of her Atlanta store boutique, TAGS, last night. In attendance were her fellow housewives, Lisa Wu Hartwell and Kim Zolciak. Noticeably not in attendance were Nene and Sheree. Photographer, FreddyO reports Nene was out of town, and Sheree’s daughter had a play that night.
It is also reported that Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar was also in attendance, but did not allow any photographs of himself taken. Kim is back to sporting her “engagement ring” so it’s safe to say these two are back at it.
