Don’t Be Tardy…Random Thoughts on Two Episodes

RHOAKimDon'tBeTardyWhy did I stop watching this show? It sort of slipped off my radar for awhile. I haven’t seen the last several episodes. Whut I miss? Tonight’s episode centers on Brielle. She continues to make poor grades despite being grounded. So somehow Kim convinces Kroy that the best parenting move is to take away all the punishments. I wish my Mom was as bad at the whole parenting thing as Kim is.  Kroy suggests taking away her fancy clothes and Twitter and Kim thinks that is downright cruelty! SMDH So Kim pushes Brielle by bringing in a glam squad to do her hair and makeup for Homecoming. Tell me Kroy had to agree to this because it was a planned filming and that he has not lost his damn mind as well.

Kim and her BFF stalk Brielle on her first date. They are so cute. Brielle doesn’t know what trout is. How to pronounce Filet Mignon or THAT SHRIMP USED TO BE ALIVE. Nick, her date is doing his best Rico Suave. Kim is concerned that Brielle is double dipping. Kim and her BFF are like Lucy and Ethel in this scene!

Kim is trying to learn Spanish. She asks the waiter what the Spanish word for taco is. Continue reading

WWHL With Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Harvey Fierstein

WWHLkimIt’s time for Watch What Happens Live with Kim Zolciak! Let’s see how Andy interacts with her. Kim’s tweets make it seem like she is not coming back to RHOA. She tweeted that it was hard to leave the stage at the reunion and that she had a lot of good memories. That sounds like a good-bye to me. Either Kroy has told her she can’t do it anymore, or Andy didn’t give her a contract would be my guess. Up until that tweet I fully expected her back and her tweets sounded like she fully intended to return. Let’s see what we can get from WWHL. Continue reading

Don’t Be Tardy Recap

Kim Zolciak's Mama Bear is Out in Full Force!We pick up on episode 2 with Kim’s Mama Drama. Remember when I was the first to break the story on Karen suing for grandparent visitation and then those buttfaces at TMZ sold my story and I sent them a cease and desist and they just laughed and laughed? Well that is where the story is starting on episode two. Also, they want to put a gag order on Karen because she is shopping a tell all book. They are meeting with a lawyer to discuss all of these rich people problems. The lawyer is not Phaedra, it’s real lawyer with big ole lawyer books and degrees on her wall and stuff. Kim is a bit freaked out having to go to court. She says she has never been. I’m surprised as long as she has known Sheree that she hasn’t dragged her in by the wig to court for something. I’m just saying. Kim decides not to tell the girls about Karen’s lawsuit. Countdown to Brielle reading it on TMZ in five, four, three… Sorry Kim, I guess this one is my fault. But it would have come out sooner or later!

It’s Arianna’s Birthday. She is getting so cute. It takes two vehicles to get the tribe to the birthday party. They all go to Sky Zone, a trampoline park. Brielle asks Arianna if she has heard from her grandparents she says Poppi (? I may have that wrong) called and left her a message while she was in school, nothing from Nana. Yes, it did seem staged. 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

Filming Wraps for Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s SpinOff’s Second Season

KimZwiglessKim Zolciak Biermann and all the other Biermanns paid a tearful farewell to her crew yesterday as filming for Don’t Be Tardy… finally came to an end. I am surprised that it doesn’t end with moving into their new house. Well, I mean with Bravo, who knows, they might use a stunt house, but her house is not finished and I doubt they will move until school is out at this point. Kim is still tweeting with her interior designer and occasionally talks about the remodeling process. Earlier this month, she had her contractor remove a window and sheet rock over it. Why would anyone ever remove a window?

She has also been tweeting pictures of Brielle and Ariana and both of the are very pretty. Brielle looks full-grown and is beautiful. Kroy is going to have his hands full with her. Ariana’s hair has gotten super long and she has leaned out and gotten taller since the first season of the show.  Speaking of hair, the picture above is Kim’s last talking head scene for the new episode and Kim says it is her real hair. It looks real to me, and she looks great. Photo Credit: Kim Zolciak Twitter Continue reading

Did Kim Zolciak Ask the Courts for a Gag Order for Her Parents?

Kim HairThe Kim Zolciak family drama continues to make the tabloids. I broke the news exclusively at Tamaratattles that Karen Zolciak was suing her daughter for visitation of Brielle and Ariana.  Karen filed the motion with the court stating, Plaintiff is seeking the right to regularly see her granddaughters, who are the daughters of Kim Zolciak Biermann, who is a star on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The girls live such a crazy, abnormal life being on T.V., they need a normal haven to relax and unwind and just be kids. Plaintiff was portrayed as a bad person on defendant’s show Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding which featured defendant’s wedding to Kroy Bierrman. In addition, plaintiff claims she has not seen defendant’s new baby since he was born.”

Since the filing, Kim has responded by asking the judge to throw the case out of court. She was unsuccessful. The girls have both given affidavits saying, “We both love our grandparents, but due to their actions at the wedding of we have grown apart.”  Next I gave y’all the exclusive tea that Karen was approved by the courts to file forma pauperis after filing the paperwork proving that paying the court costs for the filing would be a financial hardship for her.   Continue reading

New Articles on Zolciak Visitation Case Are Full of Misinformation

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? Continue reading

Thoughts on the RHOA Premiere? What About Kenya Moore?

It seems silly to recap since I already told you pretty much the entire episode before it aired. So tell me what you thought? I’m especially interested on hearing if Kenya is going to have fans despite her obvious over-the-top look at me behavior. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a housewife try to hard to play the villain role. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: Karen Zolciak Sues Daughter Kim Zolciak Biermann for Visitation Rights

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.
