star boyfriend of Kim Zolciak is suffering the brunt of some locker room taunts about his relationship with the infamous Atlanta housewife, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
Kroy Biermann’s Atlanta Falcon teammates have been teasing the 6′ 3″ 260 lbs defender about his relationship with the wig-wearing blonde after rumors spread that he was about to propose to the reality vixen.
Zolciak, 32 and Biermann, 25, have been dating for several months.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star even took her to see Biermann play in last weekend’s home victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
But according to a source close the couple, “Kroy has been taking a lot of stick because he’s dating Kim” and his teammates are teasing him that “he’s with a gold digging cougar.”
“Fortunately Kroy is a big laid back kind of guy and he just let’s all their comments roll off his back – he just laughs them off actually,” an insider told RadarOnline.com.
“The truth is he really likes Kim and he doesn’t care what anybody else thinks as long as he’s making her and her happy that’s all that matters to him.”
Maybe he really does like Kim, but someone had to warn him about her recent past…I would think.
Damn, this gets pretty ugly, but we’re talking about Danielle Staub here so expect no less:
Remember when being considered a “housewife” was a bad thing? Well, it’s 2010 and housewives are considered to be pretty fierce…even if you’re an ex-housewife. Danielle Staub, who was part of season one and two of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, was rumored to be fired by Bravo. But that isn’t the only recent hearsay about the reality star. There are rumors that she’s a lesbian, an ex-con, and possibly the most hated person on TV.
So when Cultist got the chance to chat with Ms. Staub, whose Miami event (Jersey-ween) was canceled the day of the interview, we wanted to clear the air. Staub was ready to bare all and talked about her sex tape, how being Sicilian helps her understand what it’s like to be black, why Bravo should have pulled the other housewives off her, and a few threats about karma being a bitch. The cherry on top? News of a Danielle Staub fitness video.
New Times: We’re sad you won’t be joining us in South Florida for Halloween.
I know, it would have been nice. I could have gotten a little bit of color.
Does coming to Miami bring up memories of your past?
I have moved on from everything that doesn’t make me feel good. There are parts of Miami and my life in Miami that I love. It wasn’t all bad. I got arrested, that was the bad part. I went there with my first love; it’s in my book. But we were teenagers; we were young. Florida will always be one of my homes.
Did you and Bravo have a mutual break up or were you fired?
Yeah, it was totally mutual. I didn’t want to return at all. I realized I can do a lot better. I can take my ratings and go anywhere.
Do you regret doing the show?
Not for a second. I don’t live by regrets. I live by experiences. There are a lot of people that truly relate to me. I didn’t hide. I didn’t run. I embraced it and left my mark. I’m a published author, I’m a recorded artist, I have two incredible children with their own entities going on, I have shown what kind of mother I am through my children. People have nothing but love for me. Gay, straight, black, white, rich, poor–I have been it all, I relate to it all. I haven’t been black, but I’m Sicilian.
How do you think Bravo portrayed you?
I think they did their best to make sure their ratings were met. They lost sight of the fact that, and I’m going to say this very delicately, I am a human being and I’m a mother. And they should have corralled up their animals every once in a while. What they allowed to happen to me is bullying. I refuse to believe that is OK in anyone’s eyes. I don’t care if you hate my guts, it’s wrong to do that to another person. What if I were too weak and considered doing something to hurt myself? Because they tore at me enough to do so. They ganged up on me. They never once gave me a chance to breathe and just be me. In the presence of Andy, I think at both reunions that he should have stepped in and said that’s fucking enough.
So it’s safe to say you and the ladies are no longer friends?
I wouldn’t call them ladies, but yes.
Is it hard to have ladies you once had in your home and around your kids betray you, even testify against you in court?
I think all their karma is flying in. I don’t have to do much. They keep destroying themselves. People lie about somebody and it’s going to come back 10x to you. Look at what’s going on with Theresa right now. There’s my point. The rest of them have it coming too. Look at Dina — look how miserable she is. She has no husband, she can’t do the show, her ex-husband she fights with, she forged contracts, her Ladybug thing is under investigation. Caroline, your father-in-law was murdered and chopped up and placed in front of the brownstone, your father did time in prison leaving 11 kids behind. Let’s see, your best friend is in prison now for taking bribes from the mob and jeopardizing homeland security, but I am garbage? For what I did 27 years ago, when I was younger than your children, who you’re still tying ties for and shoes for? Karma is a bitch.
Here are five things you must know about the newest addition to the cast.
1. She Loves Clean Lines—Bikini Lines, That Is: Barshop is the proud owner of the lucrative Completely Bare spas in New York and Palm Beach, which specialize in laser hair removal all over. They are also experts in “vajazzling” one’s nether regions. Her celeb clients include Kimora Lee Simmons, and she has a reputation for being a hardass businesswoman.
2. She’s Not Afraid of Breaking Out the Credit Card: Barshop is able to switch up her style, and is known to wear minis by Proenza Schouler and tower in sky-high heels. She loves fashion so much, she once almost bought a $25,000 Hermès Birkin bag at Maxfield’s in L.A., then decided against it last-minute.
3. She’s a Kickass Single Mom to Twin Girls: And she went through a long IVF process to have them. Zoe and Jesse, born in 2009, are being raised by Barshop without the help of a man.
“What many of you probably don’t know is that I spent years going through several IVF treatments to have a baby,” Barshop writes on her blog. “It took determination, desire, painful shots, weight gain, and emotional stress to have them in my life. I look at them and know that in a heartbeat I would do it all again and again. Getting pregnant and becoming a mother has been, and will continue to be the most important thing I have ever and will ever do in my life.”
Unless she can bring as quick a wit and can keep it real with Team Jill then I don’t know how you can replace Bethenny. Ramona’s too psycho and while Alex found some balls last season, you can’t help but think that that was because of Bethenny (as Bethenny herself said). Funny too how Bravo cast aside Jennifer Gilbert like she was never there.
Life & Style has learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has yet to sign a contract, even though they have started filming Season 3 of the Bravo reality show.
Cameras were rolling when a fight broke out between Teresa’s husband Joe and her brother-in-law, Joe Gorga, at a reception for her 6-month-year-old nephew’s christening, but one source suggests they were filming a spinoff.
Reality casting company Vinnie Potestivo Entertainment and Bravo are curiously holding casting calls for more new Housewives for season three of The Real Housewives of New Jersey in the midst of the Giudices’ tiring antics. “There is no paperwork signed for Teresa right now,” a friend tells Life & Style. “They’re casting, therefore, not just to replace Danielle Staub but to possibly replace Teresa as well,” which means that the cash-desperate mom of four could be losing her family’s main source of income.
Danielle Staub and Lori Michaels have severed their ties with one another, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
On top of that, a pal of the couple says their lesbian romance was simply a publicity stunt.
While the friend confirms Staub and Michaels were “physical” with one another, the two women were never in a romantic union.
Regardless, they purposely kept fans guessing by continuously stepping out together while refusing to define their relationship.
They even sang their duet Real Close on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
“They were not a couple,” a friend said.
“Did they have a connection? Yes. Was it was very strong through work and song? Yes. Did Danielle feel more? Yes. Did she indicate that to Lori? Yes. But Lori was never going to put herself in a place where she was going to run away with Danielle.”
I never really bought that Danielle and that “lesbian superstar” were in a relationship either, but considering how much of a slut Danielle is, no way am I surprised that they slept together. In fact, is there anything breathing that Danielle wouldn’t sleep with?
As much as I can’t the old scrooge, hears hoping she pulls through ok:
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Vicki Gunvalson has been hospitalized for internal bleeding — just over a week after filing for divorce from her husband of 16 years, TMZ reported Thursday.
Gunvalson, 47, is in a hospital for observation of upper gastrointestinal problems, according to the entertainment website.
The development comes after the reality TV star filed for dissolution of marriage from her husband, Donn Gunvalson, in Orange County Superior Court last Monday.
It was Vicki Gunvalson’s second marriage. She has a son, Michael, and a daughter, Brianna, from a previous marriage.
The couple’s marital problems had been on display throughout “The Real Housewives,” a reality series which follows the lavish lifestyles of socialite housewives in the gated community of Coto de Caza, Calif.
In one episode, she was seen telling Donn Gunvalson, “My love tank is empty,” and on a cast reunion show last season, she said, “I just don’t feel real happy right now.”
Despite their issues, Vicki and Donn Gunvalson renewed their wedding vows on camera in 2009.
Danielle Staub just got tricked and then treated — with a lawsuit from a process server who gave the former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star a serious shock at a Halloween party.
A TMZ photog saw the whole thing go down just minutes ago — as Danielle was served for a defamation lawsuit her ex-boyfriend Steve Jalewski is bringing against her.
Danielle was just starting down the red carpet at a Halloween event in Woodridge, NJ when the process server walked up with an envelope and said, “Here, Danielle … you’ve been served.”
Danielle was stunned, but didn’t miss a beat — she simply handed the envelope to her publicist and continued down the red carpet into the party.
According to sources, Jalewski is suing Danielle for defamation because she has repeatedly accused him of secretly shooting a sex tape of her — which he denies doing.
On the new season of Millionaire Matchmaket, Patty Stanger is hooking up Millionaires and lucky singles in the Big Apple. Tonight it was love Italian style, featuring Caroline Manzo’s two sons, Chris and Albie, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Patty Stanger set up a hot group date at the Brownstone. Mama Caroline had a hidden camera set up, so she could help her two baby boys pick the right girls. I guess she didn’t want any trashy chicks like Danielle Staub hooking up with her sons.
Both Chris and Albie chose classy girls, which normally doesn’t happen on Millionaire Matchmaker. Chris Manzo, who seems more confident than his brother Albie, stumbled on his first date with Rachel. Chris took her to a Medieval Times restaurant, Rachel a fashion intern, was not impressed. Later Chris redeemed himself and did take her to high end restaurant for dinner. Astrochicks wasn’t feeling the chemistry and I don’t think Chris was either. He seemed bored with Rachel. She practically begged him for second date but he wasn’t biting. Patty Stanger read him the riot act after the date but I think she was just too vanilla for this Jersey Millionaire.
Now Albie Manzo and his date Nicky really hit it off, he took her out to dinner and on a romantic moonlight sail. The perfect gentleman, they seemed to be a good Millionaire Match. Even Mama Caroline a picky Virgo approved. Albie asked Nicky out on a second date and they are taking the relationship slow.
For Chris, he never went out with Rachel again. I think Chris Manzo is more into Jersey Shore type girls. Maybe Patty Stanger can fix him up with Snooki. Now that’s a date I would like to see. Either way, astrologically I don’t see Albie or Chris getting married anytime soon. Go get em girls.
Kim Zolciak is expecting a baby with her beau! But in a shocking twist, Kim’s former lesbian lover, DJ Tracy Young says Kim asked her to raise the baby together and then dumped her!
Star can exclusively reveal that The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak is expecting a baby with her beau, Atlanta Falcons pro footballer Kroy Biermann! But in a shocking twist, Kim’s former lesbian lover, DJ Tracy Young says Kim asked her to raise the baby together and then dumped her!
Earlier this month, Tracy flew to Atlanta to reunite with Kim, four months after their bitter breakup. “She said she still loved me and wanted to tell me something important face to face,” Tracy tells Star exclusively in our Nov. 8 issue, on newsstands now.
Kim dropped the bombshell baby news and Tracy says, “When I asked her what she was going to do, she said, ‘I want you to stay and raise the baby with me, because Kroy doesn’t want to be involved.'” Little did Tracy know that only two days after Kim’s stunning announcement, her world would come crashing down as Kroy came back into the picture.
Sheree was being kind when she called Kim a “famewhore”, she should’ve just dropped the “fame” part.
Quick—someone, Kim—intervene! Before we know it, Nene could pull a Heidi Montag. You know, the pressures of fame and constantly being perfect can have a toll on the ladies of Bravo, and Nene was feeling the stress this week on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” I heard that Bentley Cadence, Maci’s son on “Teen Mom”, was going under the knife soon. It’s really too bad, the guy never even had a chance.
Nene’s been going through some problems at (her rented) home. Nene’s marriage to pastel-sweater-loving Gregg is on the rocks and her son Bryce is a useless delinquent. Nene tries to set a good example for Bryce by being such a productive member of society thorough her educational television program, but he just still doesn’t get it. Then, on top of that, former BFF Duh-white has replaced Nene with Phaedra, who is so damn classy I can’t even take it. What’s a Nene to do? Get a breast reduction, liposuction and nose job, that’s what. Sure, Nene’s nose was big, but so was her head, body, breasts and persona. She’s a big lady! So while this new nose is nothing unusual for someone as internationally famous as Nene, it just looks wrong on her body. Plus, she said she only had her nostrils taken in. Lie! Why is a nostril procedure any better than fessing up to a nose job? I’ll never understand the levels of plastic surgery acceptance in their world. Botox, excellent. Nostril relocation, fantastic. Boob job, keep ’em coming. But a nose job? Heavens no!
Respected local artiste Dr. Whiteman put Nene out, and girlfriend was OUT. Her incoherent ramblings were some of them best one-liners of the night. Calling Kim from the hospital bed: “Kim, I’m right around the block.” Calling Sheree: “I got a surprise for you. I get to wear one of your bras.” In fact, the whole episode was very slap-stick comedy, in the vein of greats Charlie Chaplin and the Three Stooges. Maybe Atlanta housewives are the comic relief to the drama of the other cities. But, noticeably absent at the big surgery was Nene’s husband Gregg. Bad move, G. She wasn’t going to let Gregg ruin her new nose, though. The day of her surgery, still completely anesthesia-drunk, she was ready to party: “I’m ready to drink. The bitch is back!”
Kelsey and Camille Grammer‘s marriage of 13 years was seemingly intact when Camille signed on to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which debuted two weeks ago on Bravo.
Yet this past July, as the show filmed, actor Kelsey, 55, filed for divorce from Camille — and quickly stepped out with new love, 29-year-old flight attendant Katye Walsh. (Walsh sadly miscarried their child in September.)
Camille now charges that her soon-to-be ex lobbied to get her on the Bravo series in order to facilitate an affair with Walsh. Kelsey moved from Malibu to NYC to star in a revival of Broadway show La Cage Aux Folles, still running now.
“Looking back, maybe he wanted to keep me preoccupied in California while he was off having his affair in New York,” the ex Playboy model, who has two young children with the actor, tells the New York Post.
I guess it wouldn’t truly be a nationwide craze if they didn’t hit the midwest at some point:
Move over, New Jersey. When it comes to TiVo-worthy reality TV divas, no one can deliver like Texas. So it’s no surprise that experienced producers from Los Angeles are quietly in talks with several sultry socials for a Houston-based series.
The cast is still being whittled from 18 to the final five, but here’s CultureMap’s not-at-all-scientific, handicapped list of who we expect to see bringing the drama and the glamour soon in primetime.
Housewife credentials: Former model? Check. Pro-athlete spouse? Check. Philanthropic? Check. What’s not to love?
We’re not sure if she’s related to the oil and museum Gettys, but this modelesque brunette with the impeccable fashion sense strolls past velvet ropes to the most exclusive parties — and where she goes, we want the cameras to follow.
Ready for drama and controversy mixed in with social climbing? As wife number four of the notorious hand doctor, she’s making waves in the social scene and raising quite a brood.
Can you say America’s sweetheart? Echols’ adorable blonde looks and sweet, bubbly personality will win her fans. And what’s a villainess without a heroine to play against? (All the better if she drives a cherry red Ferrari.)
Every good cast has a character that’s well-meaning but a little bit wacky — think Lynne from Housewives of Orange County. Plus we all know the Rose family takes to reality television drama like a fish to water, and it’s high time Cindi dove in.
You can’t have a show about the Houston social scene without mixing in a glamorous, over-the-top diva with international flair. And we’re pretty sure “flair” is this bombshell’s middle name.
