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.
