So there are some weird things happening with the Zolciaks today. First TMZ posts a story just after midnight that claims to quote Kim’s Dad. This is a quote from Joe Zolciak according to TMZ, “Kim is a pathological liar PERIOD. I will not tolerate her trying to make a mockery of my wife or our family any further. We are completely humiliated by all the lies she has put in the media. She has been married twice and has three different fathers of her four children. Let’s face the facts.”
Um what? TMZ has been weird lately. Up until recently most everything they post has had believable sources. Now I often find myself reading over there wondering if someone else is in charge. So that quote was posted at 3:20 a.m. Do we really think Joe just picked up the phone to call TMZ to call his daughter a liar? Where are these lies Kim is putting in the media? I must have missed them. Why would he make a comment to TMZ about the fathers of Kim’s kids? This make no sense. So I ignored the whole story.
According to TMZ, Kim’s attorney gave them a statement that said, “[Kim is] heartbroken and saddened by the derogatory and spiteful statements made by her mother and father, Karen and Joe Zolciak. [Kim] cannot comprehend for what rational purpose her parents have decided to humiliate their grandchildren’s mother in such a public display of hatred and fabrications.” Okay, are they referring to something Karen said in court? Because she said nothing on TMZ. Does this guy sound like a lawyer to you?
Karen has allegedly spoken to Radar Online. ROL is quoting Karen as saying, “Kim has always used her kids as pawns and she makes us jump through hoops to
get to them. I don’t deserve this! We miss the children, of course. This is made up drama for TV. Bravo will do anything for ratings and this is just a continuation of the ridiculous situation from the wedding where they said that family couldn’t use the bathrooms.”
The timestamp on the ROL post is 2:30 a.m. Now there is another article up where “Kim’s rep Jack Ketsoyan” gives the following quote (He is also credited by ROL as the author of the statement quoted above by TMZ):
“It is clear from the pleadings filed by Mrs. Karen Zolciak that by claiming she is indigent she has committed perjury, a felony in Georgia, which holds a sentence of not less than one year of imprisonment but not more than 10 years imprisonment, a $1000.00 fine, or both. This alone should alert everyone that this Grandparent’s visitation lawsuit is for nothing more than publicity to drive up the price of her purported ‘tell all’ book about her daughter. Is there nothing more sacred than a parent and child bond, a mother and father’s love and a desire to protect their children? Apparently not for Mr. and Mrs. Joe Zolciak.”
This is interesting. Remember yesterday I told you that my story about Karen filing a forma pauperis status would end up on the big sites soon? Well here you have it. I reported it yesterday and today it’s on Radar Online. The thing is, it doesn’t have anything to do with the story. The other interesting thing is this Jack Ketsoyan person is not the attorney of record for Kim in the grandparent visitation case. And if you find yourself thinking that statement does not sound like a legal statement you would be right. That’s because Jack Ketsoyan is a stylist and a friend of Kim’s. Not a lawyer as TMZ suggested. Just some gay stylist PR wannabe dude who apparently reads my blog (Hi Jack!) And is pretending to know what he is talking about.
So the bottom line is I don’t believe the Radar Online story or the TMZ story. Apparently Kim does though. She gave this statement on twitter tonight:
My husband & I will do whatever it takes 2 protect our children. I am deeply hurt & saddened by my parents comments FACTS.. is you have none. Whenever u point the finger u got 3 pointing right back at u.
