Don’t Be Tardy premieres on Bravo on Thursday, July 17, at 9 p.m. and it looks FANTASTIC. The twins are adorable. Kim is wackier than ever. They go on a camping trip! Finally, we will get to see the new house finished. It seems that Brielle has had FOUR car accidents. Ariana has her eye on the pool boy. SWEETIE IS BACK! Kroy is recovering from ankle surgery so he is able to keep a close eye on Kim’s spending. It just looks like a lot of fun. I hope they don’t edit Brielle too badly, from all accounts she seems to be a pretty solid kid. Continue reading

It’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
March was a month with a couple of lawsuits one brought against someone on Shahs of Sunset, and another brought by a Real Housewife of Atlanta. Kim Zolciak talked about firing Sweetie. The knuckleheads came to terms with Sheree Whitfield getting the boot from RHOA. Both Peter and Derek J faced problems with their Atlanta businesses. I also did an exclusive interview with GG who gave us a peek at what typical day in the life of GG is like. Click on the links below to take a look back. Again, apologies for any weirdness in the editing. These posts were written on Blogger and didn’t always transfer over cleanly. Continue reading
Better late than never on this recap. Sorry. I had to watch The Amazing Race. Um wait, hold up. Gregg is going to open an L.A. office? In what universe? Does he even have a job because he has been in Nene’s hip pocket for the past year everywhere she goes, he’s right there with her. I’m supposed to believe this man has a job? I love Gregg but that right there is just some straight up bullshit. They sure do have some fancy pedicure chairs up in this place. I love Gregg. Lawrence looks healthier in this episode but that belt? Gurrrrl! Just no.
Speaking of house husbands and their jobs. Apollo apparently doesn’t repo cars anymore. He’s going to be a personal trainer and nutrition specialist. Honey, I may get my fat ass up off this couch and go to the gym myself. Unlike the RHOA though, I want a smaller butt. What the hell is he eating and where did it come from? You know nothing has been cooked in that kitchen. He’s microwaving food from somewhere. Continue reading
Okay, apparently I am taking requests today. Someone asked me to blog about Kandi and Kim’s blogs from the first episode so that she could talk about them with you and get your opinions. Sounds like a good idea to me! Click through for the relevant parts of Kandi and Kim’s blog and tell me what you think. Continue reading
|Sweetie and Brielle recently, at Brielle’s Birthday Party|
Last season I introduced you all to my assistant and longtime friend, Sweetie. I have known Sweetie for over twelve years now, and she is a part of my family. When I was looking for a new assistant, she was the perfect match! She’s loyal, she’s trusting, she’s smart, and she knows me better than most people. She’s been there with me through three moves, a divorce, many relationships, and so much more. We are so close that it sometimes made a business relationship impossible.
Sweetie began to become a bit lazy, she didn’t seem like herself anymore, and it worried me. The last thing I want is for our relationship to be ruined because of my role as her boss. Because of those feelings, I had to let Sweetie go.
That decision was best for the both of us, because now she’s just my girlfriend. No obligations, not stress. I’d much rather let Sweetie go and keep her as a friend, than keep her and jeopardize one of the most important relationships I have! Assistants come and go but you can’t buy loyalty.
Everyone on Twitter knows the two stopped speaking after the firing at the end of last summer and only recently have begun communications again mostly because Brielle wanted Sweetie at her birthday party. But whatever, Kim.
What do y’all think about this blog of Kim’s?
Tonight, Nene started her manic tweeting we have come to expect on Sunday nights where she retweets anything positive her fans are tweeting, and intersperses those tweets with boastful ones of her own as well as putting down “the smalls”. When she is filming Glee she tweets like a different person. Like Nene from season one almost. I miss that Nene but it seems she is gone forever.
Kim on the other hand is not as forgiving. Let’s look at the whole issue where Kandi says she can’t see Kim in the orphanage and Cynthia says she can’t see Kim holding black babies. First of all, there was no need for Cynthia to bring race into the whole situation, and I truly believe that was fed to her by Bravo. I think the majority of Cynthia and Sheree’s lines are fed to them by Bravo. It’s possible that Cynthia just blurted the black baby thing out on her own, but not likely.
Much has been said about Kim not holding KJ very much on the show. It’s true we’ve seen him mostly being held by Kroy and others. But Kim tweets pictures and talks about spending time with KJ on twitter all the time. Because of the tweets, I wanted to believe that when the show was edited the shots of Kim taking care of KJ fell to the cutting room floor. After seeing the preview for the show where Kim was despondent because she only had two housekeepers and a full-time live in assistant and no nanny, I was floored. She doesn’t work other than filming, she doesn’t cook or clean, she has a manager to handle all her bookings, she has a stylist that not only buys her clothes but KJ’s as well, she has a hair and makeup team, and she can’t be arsed to care for her son? It boggles the mind. What the hell does she do all day besides tweet? I don’t get it.
Which brings us back to Africa. Kandi had every reason in the world to say that she could not picture Kim at the orphanage. What has Kim done on screen or around the other women to make them think she would take to an orphanage visit? I was expecting from the previews for Kim to make a huge deal out of the comment, but I also figured it was mostly for the show. Surely Kim couldn’t really be that offended by the comments.
One of the most popular blogs on this site that still gets lots of hits every day is this one that I posted in November about what happened between Kim and Sweetie. Last summer, sometime in August about two months after Kim, Kroy and the gang moved into the big ole house in Roswell. the frequent tweeting between Kim and Sweetie stopped. Lots of their followers noticed and waited to hear what had happened. But nothing was floating around the Internet until Brielle posted the following on her Formspring page.
Recently, Atlanta blogger extrodinaire, Michelle Brown aka @ATLien of Straight from the A interviewed Sweetie in an attempt to get to the bottom of the situation. I’ve been dying to read the blog about her interview ever since she first mentioned it on twitter. Tonight, it’s finally up! Be sure to click on the youtube for the full audio of the interview
In the interview, Sweetie talks about working for Kim since she was 15, well before the show started. She denies the rumors that she stole from Kim saying that she had access to bank accounts and all manner of expensive things for all those years and would never do anything like that. With some gentle prodding from ATLien, she indicates that she was on the way to work one day and Kim just told her that it wasn’t going to work out for them anymore. Sweetie claims she doesn’t want to say anything bad about anyone. She talks about Kim recently sticking up for her on twitter saying that she would never steal from her. But when it comes to Kroy, Sweetie even more elusive about what happened just saying “he’s cool” in a way that seems to say she doesn’t really believe that. When I listened to the interview I immediately thought, “So I was right, it did have something to do with Kroy.”
Kim Zolciak and Sweetie are chatting happily on twitter.
I don’t know about y’all but all is right in my world! I wonder if she will be in Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding? I really don’t care as long as they are back being friends. Love them!
Kim’s kids love her so this is a good thing. Kim is really maturing and settling into a happy life with Kroy and the kids. Who says you can’t make a reality whore into a housewife. I had faith all along.
And have you seen the KJ pics? That kid is adorable!
I’ve been getting questions about what happened between Sweetie and Kim. There is a not a lot out there, but is what I know for sure. Kim, Kroy the girls and Sweetie moved into the house in Roswell on June 1st. At some point late in the summer Kim and Sweetie suddenly stopped tweeting each other. Kim tweets a lot, so people noticed their lack of communication. Then in September, Brielle posted the following on her Formspring page.
