Kim Zolciak boyfriend Kroy BiermannLisa Wu Hartwell

There was a report this week about the drama that ensued at the wedding of new Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey.

According to the NYPost, Kim Zolciak has moved on from the still married Big Poppa as she reportedly got into a tiff with her new blonde boy toy boyfriend when she caught him “checking out a hot redhead while puffing a cigar. Kim caught him in the act,” said a witness.

Well the said boy toy has now been revealed. He is Kroy Biermann, a 24-year-old NFL player who plays for the Atlanta Falcons. InTouch magazine reports “they’ve been dating for about two months.”

An insider tells the mag Kim and the 6’3″, 260-pound defensive end were seen “laughing, kissing and have a great time together,” during Cynthia’s wedding on Saturday despite their drama.

In other Atlanta news, Lisa Wu Hartwell’s publicist is now confirming she is indeed leaving the show this upcoming season.

Carlos Scott tells the AJC Lisa “doesn’t want to just be a reality star.” It seems Lisa is trying to get her foot into acting. A few months back, she had a small role on a “Meet the Browns” episode. She just did a fitness DVD. And she’s working on a film with Robert Downey Jr., added her publicist.

And despite the widespread rumors than Lisa got the ax from the Bravo network for being too boring, her publicist insists the decision was mutual.

A new report by the Black Voices Web site also reveals that Lisa won’t even be on the opening credits and may only pop up in a handful of episodes as the show introduces the two new cast mates Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey.

Black Voices also gives another reason for Lisa’s exit from the show, stating that Bravo “basically wanted to script elements of Lisa’s life and make her amp up the drama. She wasn’t with that at all. Lisa felt like if her real life alone wasn’t enough for the network, then maybe it was time for her to go.”

Bravo is not commenting on the news.

NeNe-Kim-atlanta-housewivesDwight Eubanks

The third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta only began filming weeks ago and the drama is already raging on.

RadarOnline is reporting that former enemies Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak came together last Friday and decided to confront honorary 6th housewife Dwight Eubanks, leading to a very nasty war of words and chair throwing between the parties.

“Dwight was at the hotel for what he thought was going to be a casual meeting,” a source tells Radar. “But instead the producers had their own plans as they brought in Kim and NeNe to confront Eubanks about several issues, only for Dwight to call them out. NeNe and Kim came storming into the hotel and got straight in Dwight’s face, accusing him of spreading lies about them and making up rumors.”

The source continues, “It was absolutely crazy! NeNe and Kim were both screaming at him, and he gave back as good as he got. Dwight started yelling at NeNe that she was nothing but a common prostitute and that she had hooked up with a married man, and he totally trash talked Kim too.”

The rumor now is that Nene’s husband Gregg Leakes was still married when she met him, while dancing at a strip club. “NeNe lost her temper and attacked Dwight with a chair, breaking off a leg and Kim threw a vase at him! It was like a scene out of some crazy movie!,” continued the source.

Access Atlanta was able to get ahold of Dwight, who confirmed the events did indeed take place. “It was real… she bruised me up a little bit,” said Dwight. When asked if there was any permanent damage, he said, “I’ll survive. We’re fine.”

In other Atlanta news, all of the housewives including the two newest housewives, Cynthia Bailey and a very pregnant Phaedra Parks were all in attendance at a listening party for Kandi Burruss, who is currently working on her new album. Photos of that below -

It is finally confirmed.  Atlanta attorney Phaedra Parks has joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

We reported this back in February, but the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has finally confirmed the news via April Love, a PR rep for Lisa Wu Hartwell.

The surprise however comes in the form of Cynthia Bailey, a model who has also been cast.  This brings the total number of Atlanta Housewives to a large seven.  The five returning housewives brought us so much drama last year, one can only imagine what the addition of two new women will bring.

As for what is known about the ladies, Phaedra is a high power celebrity attorney that has represented celebrities such as Jermaine Dupri and Bobby Brown. She recently got married to Apollo Nida, and according to various reports, her husband has a rather impressive criminal background, and reportedly did a couple of years in prison.

As for Cynthia, she has a daughter with actor Leon Robinson aka Leon, and apparently has a lot of celebrity friends.  She is reportedly best friends with actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker.

This is a smart move on Bravo’s part as there had been rumors the five returning Atlanta housewives were all getting along, so these two new additions to the cast should shake things up a bit. After all, we would not want to watch an entire season about the women being nice to each other right? Anyone remember the infamous boring season 2 reunion?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies have been rather busy lately. The good news is no evictions, foreclosures, or short sales have been reported for any of the housewives in almost a year.  And though a new housewife (reported to be Phaedra Parks) has been added to the mix for the third season, Lisa Wu Hartwell revealed exclusively to Hollywood life that no housewife will be leaving.

This is good news for Lisa, as she was heavily rumored to be the housewife getting the axe.  As for her feelings for the new housewife, Lisa has none as she revealed she doesn’t know the newest housewife.  Lisa also recently made her TV acting debut when she guest starred on the TBS sitcom – Meet The Browns on Monday.

Sheree Whitfield – It seems Sheree has found out the hard way that starting a fashion line is never easy, as she has now decided to move on from her infamous She by Sheree fashion line.  “I’ve slowed down quite a bit,” Sheree told HoneyMag.com. “It’s a lot of work and I’ve got so many things that I’m really passionate about. Don’t get me wrong that’s my passion, but right now it’s hard trying to find the right group of people to come together and help out. You can’t do it by yourself. It takes a team. And being in Atlanta it’s very hard. If I was in L.A., if I was in New York, if I was in Paris, you have those type of like-minded people. I can’t find people with the same business sense that I have.”

Nene Leakes – The always loud outspoken Nene had quite a bit to say about the rumored upcoming Bravo housewives franchise – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  “If they do the Beverly Hills Housewives, they’ll probably be all plastic – big lips, fake tits, tummy tucks,” she told Pop Tarts. As for her favorite Bravo housewife? Nene reveals  that “Gretchen Rossi (of the O.C) is the only one that I truly, truly love,” she added. “I think she’s fun, beautiful and she’s making all the bit**es mad and I love it. Make ‘em mad girl! She has great hair; we talk all the time and just had dinner together in Beverly Hills. Did I say she has great hair?”

Kandi Burruss – Blogger SandraRose recently reported that Kandi’s newly opened boutique store, Tags, might be going out of business very soon.  According to the blogger, business has been slow for the store, which opened last November. The blogger also claimed the store was being closed during business hours and phone calls were going unanswered.  Kandi however denied this story in an interview with AJC.  “Our store is doing very very well,” she said, while also acknowledging that January was slow but that’s a traditionally quiet month for clothing retail anyway. Kandi revealed November and December were very strong and that the boutique just added online shopping as well at www.tagsatl.com.

The 3rd season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is scheduled to begin filming next month. The housewives will reportedly become the highest paid Bravo Housewives at the rate of $150,000 each, which makes sense considering their series is the most watched.

The third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is set to begin filming next month, and the rumor mill is already going out of control. The main questions on everyone’s minds are who will be joining the cast, and who will be getting the axe?

The first question seems to have been answered as several Atlanta bloggers are reporting Celebrity Power Attorney Phaedra Parks will be the latest “Housewife” to join the cast. Blogger Thea from Straightfromthea.com was the first to report this. According to Thea, she called Phaedra to confirm this news and though Phaedra did not confirm or deny the news, her reaction to the question was apparently confirmation enough.

But of course, with joining a hit show like the Real Housewives franchise comes some negativity as well. People are already starting to dig us skeletons about Phaedra, and blogger SandraRose.com alleges Phaedra is a “groupie” who has always wanted to date or be close to celebrities. There’s also an unconfirmed story about Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida, having some past troubles with the law.

Kim Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, also confirms Phaedra will be joining the cast. According to Jonathan, Lisa Wu Hartwell will likely be the one to get the axe, but his sources reveal it could also be Sheree Whitfield.

What’s clear is Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes and Kim have signed on for Season 3. And although NeNe and Kim were demanding significantly more money to do the show, in the end, Jaxson reveals they each got about $150,000 each, a 50 percent raise from the $100,000 they each received to do Season 2.

Bravo is expected to make an announcement on Monday regarding the show’s cast.
