Bravo Announces Two New Scripted Shows and Several New Unscripted Shows for 2014

New Show 2014 2015

Bravo announced a full slate of new scripted and “unscripted” shows for 2014 today.  Although some of the “unscripted” shows sound like repackaged versions of other shows where a bunch of women “attempt to balance their personal and professional lives, ” others sound new and exciting. There is a dating show that films and airs in the same week, a fantastic sounding travel show, and a show set in London!  The two scripted shows both seem to have potential, however, is it me or do they just introduce these scripted series and we never see them air?

Click through for the entire list of new and returning shows.  Let me know if you Phaedra Parks name in there anywhere…:) Also absent? Real Housewives of Miami. Continue reading

Don’t Be Tardy Recap

RHOAkimshittodoTime for a new Don’t Be Tardy…I wish they would do the new episode at 9 instead of 9:30. Kim had great ratings for the premiere, about 1.2 million viewers. I am in love with Shun, Kim’s stylist. Kim wants to recreate her wedding in five days and Shun smiles knowing this is batshit crazy. Kim wants to be on Dancing with the Stars yet can’t dance even a little bit around when Shun tries to teach her a basic step together step thing. Kim and Shun are adorable together. Continue reading

Review of Premiere of Don’t Be Tardy

RHOAKimDon'tBeTardyTonight is the night you have all been waiting for! Especially you, Not a Kim Z Fan! It’s the premier of Don’t Be Tardy! My screener only has the first episode so I will be tuned in tonight to see the second one and probably write another post with a recap. I promise not to spoil you too much so you can enjoy the show tonight!

Here we go with episode one of Don’t Be Tardy!  This is a very rough cut so I imagine there will be some changes in what you guys see tonight. I am assuming this will be the opening with Kim in the “Falcon’s Jersey” that is nothing more than some red body paint. The theme of the opening seems to be, to borrow a phrase from Phaedra’s show, “Rich People Problems.”  The intro begins with, “My mother ruined my wedding, my friends have turned on me and me dream house turned out to be a nightmare…” The wedding eviction, her walkout from RHOA and the rental house move are shown in the opening during the voiceover. Poor Kimberleigh. Poor, poor Kimberleigh. Bless her heart. Continue reading

Remember that tea I told you I received last Sunday night just before the Sunday night blogging push? Well I can tell you today that the tea is about Kim Zolciak’s new house. The Biermanns are moving to The Manor Golf and Country Club in Alpharetta. It’s a really nice gated country club community with an 18 hole Champion golf course, a driving range, a Jr Olympic competition pool, and indoor heated pool, tennis courts, full gym and a lake.

Kim Zolciak: A Brief Refresher

TMZ runs an “exclusive” unsourced story about Kim Zolciak saying such shocking intimate filming secrets like “we heard she was pregnant while filming” and “she is getting her own spin-off ” and the crowd goes wild. Really?  Newsflash: Kim is not “getting her own spin-off”. Kim has a spin-off which already aired one season and has finished shooting season two. I feel like I am telling y’all the world is round and the sky is blue, but apparently you need to hear it. Remember when we watched Tardy for the Wedding together? Nod your heads if you remember. Good. Remember how the ratings were good and then she started filming season two at the same time season five of RHOA was filming? Yes? Continue reading

Attn: Bloggers/Media This post is a Tamara Tattles EXCLUSIVE which is independently sourced. Please do not copy my work in its entirety. You may include excerpts with a link and proper attribution. Thanks!

I’ve got some Breaking News from the ATL regarding Kim Zolciak, ya’ll. As you may recall, Kim’s show Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding gave us a peek into Kim’s relationship with her mother, Karen Zolciak. Karen seemed to have her feelings hurt when she was left out of the wedding planning process and was ultimately ejected from the wedding as seen on the finale.  I had hoped that the rift between the two was amplified for the show, but that unfortunately does not seem to be the case.

I now have an update on what has occurred since the Wedding… Click through for the tea.

Quick Thoughts on Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding Finale

That was probably the best made for TV wedding ceremony I’ve ever seen. I may have cried a bit. Mostly because of Kroy. You could tell how sincere he was. Colin Cowie did a magnificent job, and got a whole lot of airtime and  mentions. It was truly beautiful. It seems odd that he was the MC for the reception. Is that normal? Anyway, I really hope that things work out for this family. 

The reception was priceless. Even though we knew Kim’s mom was getting tossed it was still priceless. (OMG, Kathy is on while I am blogging and she says Kim’s mom has “meth arms.” OMG. I can’t. Kathy is killing her routine about the wedding.) Anyway, where was I? The most important thing is that Kim’s mom has GOT to be on the sequel. And her Dad, OMG. Drunk before the father-daughter dance and dancing with all the ladies? Making borderline racist comments about the multicultural guests? This is TV gold. Loved it!

I do have some questions for y’all. Am I the only one who was surprised she wore same dress for first dance?  Bridezilla’s with two dresses usually have one for the ceremony and one for the reception. I guess when you have to have three you spend your wedding in hair and makeup.  Kandi missed the ceremony? Anyone else think that was on purpose? Rhinestone press on tattoos? Have you ever seen anything tackier? All that money and she still manages to get some “white trash” in there.  Why was Kandi so bug-eyed when she was singing? Am I the only one who thought it looked like she had a thyroid problem or at the very least a case of the Ramona eyes?  Perez Hilton’s jacket was perhaps the most ungodly thing I’ve ever seen a man wear.  Did you see Patti Stanger “dancing”? OMG!

Okay, let me have it. What did you think?

Kim Zolciak and Her Brood Return to the Condo Big Pappa Bought Her

As I told y’all briefly here  the Biermanns have returned to their humble beginnings in Johns Creek returning to live in the townhouse that Big Pappa bought her in 2006. Kim tweeted yesterday that they have spent two nights in their own home. Kendra Davis tweeted “Adios Beverly Hillbillies.” It  is clear that we won’t see any more filming at the Davis rental.

Kendra provided TMZ with an email from Kroy stating that although they were interested in purchasing the home they needed to give notice on their lease that they would not be renewing. He did that in March causing the lease to terminate the last day of May. In the interim, something happened with the purchase. Kendra claims they never made an offer on the house. Kim claims the asking price of $3.25 million was way out of line and the Davis’ refused to negotiate. She also says the house failed inspection and recently tweeted that the house is full of bad energy. However, the house is on the market now for just under $3 million. As long as the house has been on the market you would think the Davis’ would be willing to negotiate even in this housing slump just to get out from under the payments.

I think two things happened. Kim has been proclaiming that house was her dream house and she was going to buy it for as long as she has lived there. Don’t think for a minute she suddenly stopped liking it. I also think Kroy could qualify for that house fairly easily on his own if need be. The problem may have occurred when the bank went to qualify to the loan and determined the asking price was out of line with the sale of comparables in the neighborhood. That meant that the amount of the loan was well above the actual value of the property. Despite what some of my readers think, reality stars don’t have special celebrity banks with special celebrity rules. It’s simple economics. All the bank cares about is income and credit history. But, those problems could have likely been solved with a motivated seller.

Which brings me to the second big problem. Kim bad mouthed Kendra both on the last season of RHOA and on her spin-off. While I believe Kim has been paying her rent on time the entire year she lived there, she herself admits that she did not pay Kendra for her interior design services.  Both Kendra and Kim agree the bill was for  $54,000.  Kendra paid upfront for some of the furniture involved in the design stage and the bill was due in early November.  Kendra states she has still not been paid. About that same time Kim planned a wedding on the property that had a high level of liability and considerable construction involved  without getting the permission of the Davis’ and then dodged them about it right up to the day of the wedding.  A wedding she uninvited them too. Basically, she pissed of the sellers to the point that they no longer wanted to do business with her. I think the comment she made on the DBTFTW about the house never looking better than when she moved in was that one toke over the line for Kendra. The next thing you know, they are not willing to extend them a short term lease, they are finished being nice and they want them out of their property.

So Kim began to lie and spin the story ten different ways. First, she took a page from Sheree Whitfield’s book saying she was building a bigger better dream house with skating rinks and liberries and it’s own private Pinkberry store. She claimed she was renting Buckingham Palace and going to live with the Queen of England for four months at which point Chez Biermann Castle would be completed. Then finally she said they were moving into one of the two houses that they already own while their castle was being constructed by magical elves.

Let’s talk about the two properties. Kroy’s house is in Hoschton, Georgia.  It’s a lovely house and certainly large enough for comfort but it is in the North Georgia mountains. In a tiny little town with no Saks or Neimans far away from the girls friends and well civilization in general. I don’t see all her hair people traipsing up there to style her wigs. I don’t see Kim shopping for groceries at the Piggy Wiggly or the Bi-Lo or whatever the local grocer is called. Also, when I searched the property records I could find no record of Kroy still owning any property in Hoschton. Their tiny little website is not really conducive to searching by name or street address though, so I’m not saying he doesn’t still own it. Tax assessor website property searches are notoriously difficult to search and often inaccurate. So that house, if in fact Kroy still owns it, is not going to work. Especially with Kim seven months pregnant. It’s too far from her OB/GYN.

So, they have moved back into the townhouse in an effort not to be homeless. It’s a temporary move to keep a roof over their heads while they figure out what to do next.  This is all happening while RHOA is filming. I believe that the fourth month lease extension that Kim asked for was not about waiting for a magical castle to be finished. You never know how long new construction will take, so a month to month request would have made more sense there. She wanted to stay in the house until RHOA filming was over and to give herself some time to figure out what to do next. Kendra was not having it. I wonder how Kroy feels about living in the house Big Pappa bought?

So now in addition to getting tossed to the curb from her dream house while filming a reality show for the world to see, she has another issue. It was almost guaranteed that DBTFTW was to be picked up for another season. Ratings were excellent. However, if there is one thing Bravo hates, it is a broke housewife. Just ask Sheree Whitfield, or Lynne from Orange County or any of the other wives that started having trouble keeping up the pretense of wealth and were not renewed. This could be the kiss of death for a sequel to the spin-off.

When DBTFTP started bringing the ratings Bravo was rerunning the show like gangbusters. It was on dozens of times a week. Now that Kim is making news with housing drama, the last two episodes of the show are being shown back to back tomorrow night rather than spread out over two weeks. What’s up with that?  Be sure to tune in at 9 rather than the usual 9:30  to see the wedding. You can expect to see the po-po show up to help show Kim’s mother to the door, as well as bottom feeders like Patti Stanger and Perez Hilton show up. Please note Perez’s attire. It’s hideous. Oh and helicopters show up. You will be led to believe they are paparazzi, but they are Bravo camera crews shooting all the overhead shots you will see on TV. Wedding by Bravo.

RHOA Kim Zolciak is EVICTED

Guess who is spending this weekend getting evicted moving? Someone is loading up the truck and moving to Johns Creek… Movers have been inside someone’s “dream home” for a couple days. Show is filming. Wonder how they will spin the eviction? Someone will be out by Monday and it is supposed to start raining like hell for a few days tomorrow. That can really ruin a good wig!

You Can Expect to See Kim Zolciak in a New Dream Home Soon

Wedding guests

NEW UPDATE: Kendra apparently went on TMZ live just now… And  did more than produce the documents. She slammed her!

New Update, apparently Kendra responsed to TMZ and their “source close to Kim” with a recent email from Kroy. It’s clear in the email Kroy wants to buy the house but Kendra is done.done.done. with the Biermanns and they are being shown the door. TMZ is using Kendra terms and calling Kim a squatter. ooooooooooh!

As y’all know, I’ve been slacking off on the blogging lately due to some personal issues that need dealing with, but I wanted to update the Kim Zolciak story one more time. First, today on Wendy Williams this morning, we got to see another example of her really bad reporting. I’m actually starting to think Wendy is using again. She can’t make it through a single sentence without interrupting herself to address what she looks like, and fidgeting in her chair. It’s very distracting. Anyway today she wants us to believe that Kim told her that she was moving out when she was on her show a month ago. This reminds me of the time that Sister2Sister conveniently remembered they knew Kenya Moore was going to be on RHOA because she had told them weeks before and that Straight From the A’s exclusive just seemed to jog their memory. Wendy’s job is to report the dirt. Yet we are supposed to believe that Kim moving, all on her own with no drama involved was some top secret thing she could not share? Since when is voluntarily moving out of your rented dream house into another house a big deal? I don’t believe a word of what I heard this morning, Wendy. And really, Kendra’s mugshot was the only picture of the landlady you could find? Does your hot topics crew have access to the Internet?

Kendra and Antonio at Strippergate Press Conference

Next issue. I believe Kim has been paying her rent. Kendra never alleged that Kim did not pay her rent. Kim tweeted that she thought Kendra was saying that but Kendra never said it. What Kendra said is that Kim did not pay her for her design work. These are two separate issues. I think Kim lies a lot. Kim wants us to think the problem is related to Kendra’s bill. It is not. The falling out happened back in November when Kim refused to notify Kendra about the huge wedding on the rental property. Antonio was there to inspect the massive construction on the site, not to collect on a bill for design work.

Why is this all coming out now? And on twitter of all places? After all the wedding happened in November. Simple. Kim pays her rent and had a lease through May 31. Kendra has been living for the day she could get Kim out of the house and that time is now. Kendra has a mouth on her. Always has. She had a falling out with Kim in November and now is the time she can finally kick her to the curb.

Is this some PR move to get ratings for “Kim’s failing show”? Hardly. Kim had really great ratings right out of the box. She pulled a 1.5 million on opening night and continued in that range until the episode that caused all this that pulled a 2.0.  She has higher ratings than Bethenny Ever After, Shahs of Sunset, and pretty much anything on bravo other than the housewives franchises. The idea that Bravo would somehow be pulling a PR stunt to drag readers in to the spin-off is absurd. They didn’t do anything to try to save It’s a Brad, Brad World when it was actually tanking. Kim’s show has gone beyond their wildest expectations. This is not a PR stunt, sorry @atlien. Love ya, but we’ll just have to agree to disagree on that.

Here’s more proof it’s not a publicity stunt. Ask yourself this question, why would Kendra Davis who clearly is unhappy with Kim agree to do the deed? How does this benefit Kendra in any way? Why would Kendra want to help Kim’s ratings for any amount of money? Also, if it were a PR stunt, Kim would be fueling the fires rather than trying to avoid the issue and tweeting furiously that nothing is wrong. And finally, Kim blocked me on twitter today.  Why, if you are playing a Bravo game with your twitter followers would you suddenly block someone giving the story legs?  You wouldn’t. In reality all blocking someone does is keep you from seeing that persons tweets to you in the Connect Timeline. I can still see her tweets she just can’t see mine. I’ve never mean tweeted her, or tweeted anything about this other than links to these posts.

This is not a publicity stunt. I actually kinda like Kim. I don’t see her as a role model or the best person ever, but I have often been accused here  by Nene fans of thinking she is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I watch her show, I like her show. But at the same time, she has pissed off the owners of her dream home. She has been saying rude things about  Kendra on national TV for quite some time. It’s not rocket science that Kendra is pissed.

Finally let’s talk about the value of the property. Kendra bought the house for $3.25 million back before the real estate market bubble popped. She listed it before Kim moved in for $3.75. That was a ridiculous amount based on the market at that time. It didn’t sell. My guess is she approached Kim with a rental deal that she now regrets. I don’t know where y’all are getting that  Kim made some lowball offer on the house. I don’t believe that happened. I think that Kim, once again tried to not pay Kendra for the design work. It’s her pattern. Kendra knows Kim loves that house. And Kendra is about to take it away from her.  The house is work around $2.5 -2.75  million based on current estimates. The Atlanta area is the hardest hit area in the country when it comes to declining home value. I know, I am a homeowner here, my house took a 40%  hit.  So it’s a bad time to sell if you don’t have to, and Kendra doesn’t have to. Kendra has money. Way more money than Kim does. She can afford to be as vindictive as she wants to be.

Would you let someone stay in a property you own that disparaged you on national TV? Two things will happen to prove that this is not manufactured Bravo drama. Kim will be moving out of her dream house, and she will also get a second season. Kim doesn’t need this to give her a “storyline.”  Her pregnancy will be the storyline. Her crazyassed parents are a storyline. Her pretending to be richer than she is it Bravo’s most favored storyline. She’s good on storylines.

Thoughts?

Kendra Davis is Threatening to Kick the Biermanns To the Curb. Literally.

The hostility between Kendra Davis and Kim Biermann on twitter continues to escalate. Kim and Sweetie have been BFFs again on twitter and seem to be hanging out. Kim also seems to be hinting that the inevitable second season of her spin-off is a go because ratings have been great. She also seemed to be ignoring Kendra’s tweets to and about her. But then she tweeted, “I think police mug shots speak for themselves!!!!” some folk took it to Kendra. So Kendra has a whole lot to say.  Here’s the story on Kendra’s prior arrests. I know she was found not guilty of at least one of them.

In addition to confirming what I have been reporting that Kim did not buy the house, she said they never even made an offer. Kendra says the main issue, and the reason that Antonio was there was concerns for the liability of the construction and holding such a large event on their property. She is tweeting about evicting them, and saying they have 48hours to get out. So I asked her when the lease was up, and she said May 31st.  I responded with  ut-oh, because now the Biermanns according to Kendra are month to month tenants. And Kendra is implying that she has or intends to file serve a 48 hour notice to vacate. I think legally Kendra can evict the Biermanns, particularly if she refused to accept rent for June.  Kendra is also saying that she doesn’t need the rent money and just wants Kim out. I don’t think she is playing. It won’t happen in 48hrs because it is a pain in the ass to evict a tenant in Georgia. Next, she will give a 30 day notice, even then, things drag out around here. But don’t be surprised to hear that Kimberleigh is moving soon. 

Also, if you are like me and wondering how one spends $54,000 on one room of “interior decorating”, Kendra cleared that up too. Kendra paid for the furniture that that was used in the room anticipating that Kim would reimburse her.  Kim still has not done that, and Kendra is headed to the courthouse.

Personally,  I think Kim was a moron for insulting the property owners of her “dream house” on national television.  I said that when she did it the first time on RHOA in this post. I also told y’all I thought it was about time for that lease to be up and it looks like I was right. Y’all know I have no problem with Kim, well not as many problems with Kim as the other ones, lol, but she is up the creek without a paddle in this situation.
