The Real Housewives of Atlantadoes not premier on Bravo for 2 more weeks but the games have already began. Kim Zolciak’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson has taken to his site to dish some major dirt on her. It seems the two had a falling out earlier this year. The things Jonathan has to say about Kim include -
She has an addiction to dating married men for the past ten years and even cheating on them.
She never had cancer. Her hair was simply extremely overly processed and she wore extensions which took chunks out of her hair and it hasn’t been the same since. (Hence why she wears wigs.)
“Barbie” was her stripper name while she danced nude and gave private lap dances for men and women at Atlanta’s strip club “Cheetah” back in 2003.
She recently got re-engaged, with even a bigger rock, to Lee Najjar, aka “Big Poppa.” (His name is on her ring finger, which she has been trying to get lasered off for some time now.)*She spends over $50,000 a month and makes her bills paid in time by battering with men.
She has no intention in marrying her current married man, as long as her bills are paid on time.
She and the other ladies of Atlanta’s Season 2 banked $100k for the filming of the show. A battle that took a while to win.
She got her ass nearly beat down by Sheree and NeNe on this year’s upcoming season. Mostly for telling ridiculous lies on the ladies.
Allrighty then. The new season premiers July 30th on Bravo. A picture of Lee Najjar aka Big Poppa below, as well as a photo of Kim with Jonathan -

The original Queens of drama are back! Bravo has announced today that the 2nd season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be returning July 30th, at 10 PM ET/PT.
As you can see from the above photo, 1st season housewife, DeShawn Snow will not be returning. She was allegedly asked not to come back for being “too boring.” Kandi Buruss, a songwriter and former member of the R & B group Xscape will be the newest housewife joining the group. The other returning cast members include Kim Zolciak, Sheree Whitfield, Nene Leakes, and Lisa Wu Hartwell.
I am looking forward to the 2nd season, but a bit nervous that it might be a let down. The drama of the 1st season was at an all time high, it seems almost impossible to top that. Will the 2nd season be as successful as the first? We shall see. Below is more information about what is to come this season -
“Kandi Burruss - Jumping into the mix as the newest housewife with help from friend Lisa, Kandi wastes no time acclimating herself to the group. Recently engaged to fianc AJ, she balances being a mom and planning her dream wedding, with launching a solo career and working on a new album.
Kim Zolciak – Kim continues to live life out loud. After a somewhat rocky breakup with mysterious boyfriend “Big Poppa,” she vows to enjoy life as a single woman, but her roller coaster relationship with him keeps her love life somewhat complicated. Always on the go, she continues to focus on the daunting task of launching her country music career, with help from new housewife and music artist Kandi, and also decides to create her own line of wigs. Drama rears its ugly head as her somewhat tumultuous relationships with the other housewives continue to evolve.
Lisa Wu Hartwell – Living a fast-paced life as a mother of three, Lisa’s never-ending energy keeps her on the move. With her real estate business slowing because of the economy, her entrepreneurial spirit kicks in and she decides to launch a clothing line, “Closet Freak.” To her surprise, she finds her biological clock is ticking, and debates expanding her family by having another baby, but Ed’s NFL career might throw a wrench in the plans. Lisa is thrown into the midst of all the drama between the other housewives as old rumors resurface.
NeNe Leakes – NeNe continues to take the world by storm. Busy on the charity circuit preparing for her second annual event for women against domestic violence, she is also dealing with the emotional search for her biological father while taking care of her family. NeNe wrote a book on her life experiences that will be out later this year, in hopes that she can give advice to young women who face difficult issues like she did growing up. While her no-nonsense, tell it like it is approach sometimes gets her in trouble, she continues to explore her ever-evolving friendships with the other housewives, with some dramatic results.
Sheree Whitfield – Coming off a much-publicized divorce, Sheree is ready to put the past behind her and focus on being a single mom and entrepreneur. To celebrate her new life, she delves into her work, with her “She by Sheree” fashion line moving along nicely and preparations underway for a major fashion show to debut the line. With encouragement from her friends, Sheree debates jumping back into the dating game, and her relationships with some of the other housewives take a surprising turn.”
Tell Us – Are you excited about the 2nd Season of the Atlanta Housewives?
There is a new report that The Broke Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield’s home is currently being foreclosed. This was the home that was purchased by both Sheree and her ex husband Bob Whitfield. As you all know by now, Sheree did not get the millions of dollars she was hoping for in her divorce settlement.
Sheree was also sued by her lawyers just a month ago for not paying her legal fees. Nene Leakes was also evicted from her rented Atlanta home late last year.
Gretchen Rossi recently spoke out about Slade Smiley and being a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Nene Leakes. Gretchen continues to wear the engagement ring given to her by her late fiance Jeff Beitzel, though she is now dating Slade.
OnNene Leakes- “I’m really good friends with NeNe. She is one of my favorite people ever. She is so cool.” Gretchen and Nene met at a commercial shoot for Bravo. “She is one of the most confident women I have ever met and I love that about her,” Gretchen said. “She would sit there and go, ‘I’d watch me too if I were watching the show.’ She’s so all about herself…I’m a strong, confident woman, but just in a very different demeanor.”
OnSlade Smiley - “Slade is one of the best men I’ve come across in my life besides Jeff,” Gretchen explained. “And I know he’s a secure enough man that whether or not I’m wearing this ring would not matter to him at all.”
According to new reports, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak skipped out on a charity event of hers for battered women to go on vacation in the Bahamas.
AJC reports that Kim was supposed to make a “special appearance” at the event Saturday in which attendees donate gently used shoes for a charity she started to help battered women. But she instead bailed out, flying to the Bahamas on Friday morning.
Kim’s friend and co-founder of the charity attempts to defend Kim, “Kim has gone out of town for some mental R&R,” said Cori Davenport. Guess it’s understandable that she needs a break from umm um, what is it she does again?
There are also rumors that Kim and Nene got into a big altercation this past week, but we have yet to confirm that it really happened.
Four of the Real Housewives of Atlanta attended a birthday celebration for actress/comedian Niecy Nash in Atlanta this weekend, and according to sources there was already some drama brewing at the party. Bravo is currently filming for the second season. More pictures from the party below -
The newest woman to join Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is none other than Kandi Burruss. Kandi is a successful songwriter as well as former member of the R&B group Xscape.
Kandi is replacing DeShawn Snow on the new season of the show. The new season started filming weeks ago. It will be interesting to see how Kandi fits in with the other ladies. Will she be ringing in the drama? Only time will tell.
