In case you were worried that North West marked the end of reality-show stars with klever names, we have hope for you yet! Real Housewives of Atlanta alumna Kim Zolciak just gave birth to her twins with Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann early this morning, and their names are Kaia Rose and Kane Ren, the mother of six announced on Instagram this morning. And oh, man, wait until you see who they’re named after:
Every time we turn around, it feels like we’re in the midst of another baby boom — IRL and in our celebrity-watching lives. We were just recovering from the births of Prince George and Princess North West when we started counting down the days until we meet the new offspring of Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Kevin and Danielle Jonas and more. We’re not sure if any of these babies is destined for royal titles of their own, but in the meantime, they’re making their mamas look like queen bees. How well do you know these famous bumps? Test your knowledge in this little quiz:
Gwyneth Paltrow gets around in style, celebs tell us about their favorite summer flicks, and a beloved crime writer dies.
A Gossip Table exclusive: Noah Levy confirms that former Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is pregnant, just nine months after giving birth to her previous child. This will be child number five(!) for the reality star and her third with Atlanta Falcons American football player Kroy Biermann. Congrats to the baby-making machine!
Also, is Kim Kardashian is passing on a deal with Weight Watchers. Why? The Gossip Table has the answer!
Sorry, Bravo, that we haven’t been tuning in for Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. It’s just, well, the name instantly puts Kim Zolciak’s godawful “song” in our heads. Which, we know, is exactly the point. Anyway, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s wedding planning spin-off certainly caught our attention this week, when the 34-year-old decided on a clever gift for her fiance, Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann: getting his football jersey painted on her naked torso for a sexy photo shoot. This is actually way sweeter and more personalized than mere lingerie, don’t you think? Also, weirder.
Anyway, the photos got us thinking about all the other lovely ladies who’ve been using their bodies as canvases of late — though actually, for not as sweet reasons. Rihanna did it for her recent “Where Have You Been” video. Heidi Klum did it for an Astor ad. Ashley Greene did it for Sobe. (None of them went for the same wrinkly shirt illusion as Kim, either, by the way.) Which is your favorite look?
We’ll level with you: we haven’t totally accepted the fact that Keisha Knight Pulliam, better known to the world as Rudy Huxtable from The Cosby Show, didn’t just remain an adorable 7 year-old forever. We don’t care how many episodes of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne she appears on! But if these new rumors are true, it looks like we might have to wake up and face the facts that Rudy is all grown up. Reports are circulating that the former child-star has been tapped to join the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta! According reports on MediaTakeOut.Com, Keisha will be filling the spot left by Kandi Burruss, who bounced from the series to take on her own spin-off show, The Kandi Factory. Although there has been no official press release as of yet, a “high ranking Bravo producer”confirmed the story. One snag, though: her never-married status doesn’t exactly qualify her as a “real housewife.” But hey, she does live in the Atlanta area, so you never know… Stay tuned!
Remember when Demi Moore shocked the world by posing pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair? Yeah, well, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak’s appearance on the cover of this week’s Life & Style is pretty much nothing like that.
For starters, Demi Moore’s iconic photograph pushed the boundaries of how we, as a society, viewed female stars of stage and screen. While movie stars of the feminine persuasion used to literally go into hiding when they got pregnant, Demi and photographer Annie Leibovitz’s decision to put Moore’s swollen belly on the cover—hi there, Rumer!—made a bold statement not only about the beauty of the female form, but also about the traditional ways in which the bodies of female celebrities were objectified. Kim Zolciak, on the other hand, decided to don an ill-fitting pink bra and a pair of see-through lace panties as a fairly transparent way to land herself on the cover of Life & Style (not to mention a Hall of Fame spot in the pregnancy wing of Awkward Family Photos). This makes her RHoA castmate Phaedra Parks’s decision to deep throat a pickle while pregnant look positively resplendent in comparison!
Impossible to say! But when we spoke to disgraced Real Housewives of New Jersey (and recent sex tape) star Danielle Staub at The Sorcerer’s Apprentice red carpet on Tuesday night, that’s exactly what she claimed. “Jillian has a song coming out that actually has Justin Bieber in it,” she told us, before adding that “It’s produced and also written by Lori Michaels and it’s called ‘Whatchu Talkin’ About’.”
Hmmmm. We’re not accusing Staub of lying, exactly, but we do have our doubts that this will actually come to fruition. First of all, why would a huge megastar like Justin Bieber collaborate with a virtual no-name like Jillian Staub? This isn’t like the time when a (washed-up and possibly drugged out) Dallas Austin agreed to sit in a studio with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak while she awkwardly warbled a few notes in exchange for a huge payday. Second, her claim’s plausability is slightly undermined by the rumors that Staub (the mom, not the daughter) is involved in a same-sex relationship with the songwriter in question.
Speaking of which, VH1 News also asked Staub about her burgeoning relationship with Michaels. See what she told us below.
Real Housewives of Atlanta gearing up for ridiculous season.
Yes, you’re hearing it right today: Real Housewife Kim Zolciak doesn’t fit the housewife category at all anymore. Zociak has turned gay, and we have the lowdown on her new girlfriend, the deejay Tracy Young.
