The photo on the right is of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjarand his wife, who is ironically also named Kim, and strangely enough looks a lot like Kim Zolciak. Lee is an extremely wealthy real estate developer in Atlanta.
This news is interesting considering the fact that Kim confirmed she and Big Poppa were still together just a week ago during her appearance of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens.” She even went as far as to reveal that she and Big Poppa had been intimate a week earlier.
The habitual liar Atlanta housewife wrote on her twitter page — “There is NO more Big Poppa and Kim FYI. The show was filmed months ago things have changed..So happy.” She has however spent the past few months sporting an “engagement” ring she claimed was a gift from Big Poppa. Not exactly sure how one can be engaged to a still married man, but evidently anything goes in Kim’s world.
Below is a photo of Kim and Big Poppa taken while the duo vacationed –
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak should have taken her own advice, as she is now being sued for being tardy on a payment by music producer, Don Vito.
“Tardy for the Party,” the first single from Kim’s upcoming album, has been removed from iTunes on Monday afternoon because she allegedly has yet to pay the song’s producer for the time she spent in the studio.
“The song was number three on iTunes’ dance chart for the last four days, but since Don Vito owns the copyright to the song and he hasn’t been paid, he requested that the song be taken down off iTunes,” a source told E! News.
Kim’s manager and publicist Jonathan Jaxsonhad no official comment while Don Vito had only nice things to say about the tardy for the payment singer.
“I think [Kim] is a good person and it was fun working in the studio with her,” he said. “We made a great record and I look forward to working with her on the album again.”
One can only wonder is this whole “lawsuit” is nothing other than a big publicity stunt to promote her single. Surely Big Poppa akaLee Najjarcould have foot the bill for this.
The photos were shot by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. Nene Leakesplayed the role of a mother and a stripper – a role she’s all too well familiar with, as she has admitted to being a stripper in the past.
Kim Zolciak’s alter ego had her playing a mistress and stepford wife. Kim has however denied wanting to play a mistress, claiming she was under the impression she would be playing a different role, and would have never agreed to play a mistress. Nene however insists it was Kim’s idea to play a mistress.
I thought Sheree and Kandi had the best photos. Photos are courtesy of Dblanks.com.
“We were just having fun,” NeNe toldRadarOnline exclusively at a signing for her bookNever Make The Same Mistake Twice at the Eso Won Bookstore in L.A. “Kim said I went too far, but for me it was just about having fun.”
“It’s very hard for me to be friends with someone who is not a real friend,” NeNe said. “If it wasn’t for our interaction on the show, we would have nothing to say to each other.”
In NeNe’s book, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, she writes about her cast mates- the falling out she had with Sheree, who she says she has known for years. “I never expected to have the falling out with her that I did and on national television,” she writes.
NeNe says, though their lives are taped, certain aspects are off limits. “The master bedroom!” she jokes, before adding, “no, my husband is a very private person and that room is where we relax.”
Noticeably missing in attendance were Sheree’s fellow Atlanta housewives — Kandi, Kim, Nene, and Lisa. Trouble in paradise perhaps? “It’s just a working relationship,” Sheree explained. “We all have our different things that we’re doing. We’re not friends, but we are cordial.”
Stylist.com’sblog was able to get Sheree for a quick Q&A session, below are some excerpts –
StyleList: How does showing at Fashion Week in New York compare to having a show in Atlanta? Sheree: There’s absolutely no comparison. Being in New York for Fashion Week is like the ultimate. This is the fashion capital of the world so for me to be able to preview my line here, I feel like I’m on cloud 9. I need to go home and pinch myself, you know what I’m saying? Of course, my ultimate goal is to come back in February during the shows and do a full out presentation on the runway.
StyleList: How does your collection compare to Lisa’s “Closet Freak” collection? Sheree: Yeah, right … [laughs]. It doesn’t compare. I wish her well and wish her all the best, but it doesn’t compare.
You gotta love the cattiness. The clothes look a bit upgraded from she debuted in Atlanta back in May.
It all started when host, Ellen DeGeneres, not so innocently asked about the wig-pulling episode that aired last month which involved bothKim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield. This led to Sheree calling Kim a habitual liar, and the topic quickly deteriorated into an argument about bounced checks, name calling, and accusations of affairs with married men.
Ellen tried to separate Sheree and Kim by sitting on the couch between them before cutting to commercial. Their appearance on the talk show was rather embarrassing to watch. Remaining housewives, Kandi Burruss, Lisa Wu Hartwell, and Nene Leakes, were mostly quiet throughout the entire segment.
Part of the argument included Kim accusing Sheree of self promotion for wearing her ‘She By Sheree’ earrings during her NOH8 campaign photo shoot. You can view the controversial NOH8 picture here.

The topic quickly deteriorated into an argument about bounced checks, name calling and accusations of affairs with married men. Ellen tried to separate Sheree and Kim by sitting on the couch between them, but by time they cut to commercial, Ellen almost looked relieved.
We now have the photos of Lisa’s line, and let’s just say some of her pieces should have remained in the closet. The above photo is pretty much as “good” as it gets.
When asked to describe her clothing line, Lisa says, “I wanted very classical, elegant pieces, but still a little flirtatious. I think these days a lot of women overexpose themselves to get attention.” The good news is wearing Closet Freakwill definitely get you some attention, though likely not the type of attention you were looking for.
This clothing line is in addition to Lisa’s many businesses – which include a jewelry line, real estate company, children’s clothing line, and any other business she decides to come up with while this post is being written. A reader once asked a good question, saying – “Lisa has a lot of businesses, but do any of them make her any money?” Interesting question indeed.
Photos of Lisa’s Closet Freak line is below. The 18-piece collection includes skirts, tops, jumpsuits and dresses.

Real Housewives of New York City Star, Bethenny Frankel, is making a statement by posing nude in the latest PETA “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” ad campaign. TV Guide Magazine was present at the racy photo shoot on a Manhattan rooftop.
In the new interview with TV Guide Magazine, Bethenny speaks out about posing nude for PETA, her new bestseller, love life and dishes out on the Real housewives series.
Below are excerpts from this interview-
You’re brave! How does it feel to take it all off?
Oh, I’m really excited. I think it’s a really amazing cause. It’s very simple to say to people, “You get to make a choice, and you can choose not to wear fur. It’s such a frivolous thing to do, and I used to do it. I wasn’t a crazy fur-wearer, certainly—I couldn’t afford it and I’m not that outlandish—but it really is so superfluous.
How’d you get involved with PETA, anyway?
I’m a huge animal lover, so it’s been a very organic process. I’m not on the top of any soapbox, but I think this is just a really interesting thing, and they came to me. They [noticed] that I’d gotten a lot of exposure lately—pun intended, because that’s nothing like the exposure I’m getting today. I guess they trust that I’ll be able to carry the message.
Do you have any pets of your own?
I have a dog, Cookie—she’s a lhasa mix, a mutt.
Your book, Naturally Thin, has been a big hit. Does that mean that people are constantly checking out what you’re eating?
Yes! I had a bowl of pasta, and it showed up on blogs. But my entire mantra is that there’s no food that’s forbidden; taste everything, eat nothing. And people have been watching me eat a lot more lately because for 52 weeks, I’m doing a food crawl for my Twitter followers. Last Monday was the lobster roll crawl, this week it’s a gelato crawl, next week it’s a French fry call. I’m going to be at McDonald’s!
What’s your take on the current season of your sister show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta?
I call it the Real Housewivez [sic] of the Hood. They’re all very much into, “Are you a gangster, are you a hood”…asking [questions] about whether you came from money or didn’t come from money. I don’t think anybody’s confusing them from being in the Great Gatsby…and who cares anyway? I think on the first season, they all wanted to prove how wealthy they are, and how they have a staff and stylists. There are two events a year in Atlanta—I don’t know why they need stylists, assistants and hair people. And this season, I think they’re trying to go backwards a little and be like, “This is where I came from.” They’re having a financial identity crisis.
Is that your favorite of the other Housewives franchises?
Atlanta’s my favorite…my show included.
