Kim Zolciak’s Father Calls her a Pathological Liar and Other News by NoMoreDrama
Wow. Just wow. Kim Zolciak’s dad always seemed to be on her side. Not any more. He gave an exclusive interview to TMZ and said: “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.” Read more.
Kim Zolciak – Bierman took to twitter to tell her side of the story.
What is really sad is her daughter Brielle is also on twitter, and tweeted this. I sure hope this isn’t all to create drama for her show.
Oh course NeNe Leakes had to put in her two cents (assuming this tweet was about Kim).
And then speaking of liars … both Phaedra Parks and NeNe Leakes took to twitter Sunday night to set the record straight about their interaction with Porsha’s charity. Porsha Stewart mentioned on the show that some of the other Housewives support her family’s charity – Hosea Feed the Hungry – but just show up to “take pictures.”
Phaedra Parks had this to say (see bottom tweet) but Porsha denied saying that she mentioned Phaedra in her dig against the housewives. I’ll listen carefully if it re-airs.
Adrienne Maloof has downsized to a 10,000 sq ft home according to TMZ. She is leasing the mansion for a cool $20,000 a month – with an option to buy for 6.5 million. According to TMZ: “Adrienne will be moving to a swanky, gated community in Beverly Hills adjacent, where Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton and Slash call home.” I’m confused. I thought her old house was next door to Charlie Sheen’s house. Her home with Paul sold for $19.5 mil.
Is Lydia McLaughlin Sterling a new Orange County housewife? She sure seems to be the woman in the photo on her way to Puerto Vallarta with the other four housewives (Alexis Bellino is conspicuously missing). Here’s her twitter, and she’s followed by Heather Dubrow. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see – but if she’s going on the trip, she’s at least a “friend” of the housewives.
This is a photo from her facebook page:
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “Don’t Sing for Your Supper” by BB
The scene with Kim Richards and her daughter Kimberly made me sad. The hairdresser arrives to fix Kimberly’s hair for the prom and Kim is acting a little bizarre. Something is “off” with Kim and she doesn’t seem to know how to act around her daughter. Kimberly and her mom have a nice moment when she is ready to go. Kimberly and her boyfriend need make a cute couple. I feel bad that it’s just Kim and her hairdresser there to see them off. Kim had prepared food and Kimberly couldn’t seem to get out of there fast enough. Kim seems to be in a vulnerable state and I hope she’s going to be OK.
Yolanda gets a visit from Richard, her caterer/butler to prepare for a dinner party she’s holding for all the housewives and their significant others if they have one. He’s worked with her husband for 25 years. Yolanda loves hosting dinner parties with her friends and people from the music industry. After listening to the menu and seeing her beautiful home again, I would love to be a guest at that dinner party. Yolanda seems to be a cool, calm and collected party planner without being demanding. Love this scene.
Kyle and Alexia are preparing for Alexia to get her license. When Alexia gets the answer to one of the written questions wrong, Kyle decides it’s a good time to practice parallel parking. I very rarely ever have the occasion to parallel park and I’m not very good at it. Parallel parking is not part of my state’s driving test as far as I know. Boring scene.
Lisa pays a visit to Kyle’s house. As soon as Lisa arrives, she royally sniffs the air and asks if there’s a cattle smell in there (a reference to the Llama’s visit through Kyle’s house). Lisa explains why she didn’t want to cross paths with Adrienne at Portia’s birthday party. Kyle informs Lisa that Adrienne asked her to set up a meeting between them. Lisa asks Kyle if Adrienne actually thinks Lisa lacks that kind of integrity and did what Adrienne accused her of, why would Adrienne even want to hang around with Lisa? Good question. Kyle asks if they’ve seen each other any time in between and Lisa tells her no. Bottom line, Lisa is not ready to resume her relationship with Adrienne without an apology from her.
Back at Yolanda’s house, preparations are being made for the party. Yolanda thinks she should have been Martha Stewart’s daughter because she loves preparing for dinner parties. She loves the presentation, the flowers, the candles, and everything has to be perfect. She goes out and picks some pink rose petals and remarks that she shouldn’t have planted so many lemon trees. I’m in heaven watching this portion of the show.
Kim rides with Paul and Adrienne to Yolanda’s party. Kim sings Yolanda’s praises to Adrienne and Paul who have yet to meet her. Adrienne will be seeing Lisa for the first time in several months. Paul can’t get over Lisa’s comments about Adrienne’s shoes and their dog Jackpot and states they didn’t say even goodbye when they moved. Compared to Adrienne’s accusations about Lisa and the way she treated her at the reunion, those examples Paul cited seem week at best.
Oh my, now this is what I’m talking about. This is why I originally signed up to watch the housewives. If I ever become a multi-billionaire, I will beg Yolanda to design my house in Malibu. It’s amazing. When people start arriving, they seem taken aback that the butler greeting everyone has also worked for Camille and Mohammed. Do they really think he’s someone’s permanent butler/caterer and has no other clients? Kyle seems overly-interested in who he is and where he’s been and wonders if he’s a spy. Have you got something to hide, Kyle? When Adrienne and Paul arrive, Lisa chooses to ignore them. Until she gets the apology from Adrienne, that’s how it’s going to be. Paul is looking to start some crap. Kyle tells him to be nice. David Foster makes an entrance and they all sit down to dinner. He forgets Taylor’s name. How dare him for not remembering who Taylor is! I mean, he used to be married to her good friend Linda Thompson. I can’t believe he didn’t remember Taylor’s name.
Also present at the dinner are some single men Yolanda invited for the single ladies. She hoped to introduce Brandi to famous jazz trumpeter Chris Botti, and singer Michael Johns from American Idol and a man named Tom are also there. Later, another of Yolanda’s friends, singer Nita Whitaker LaFontaine shows up. After dinner, David promises some musical entertainment from these talented people.
David and Yolanda are at the head of the table of course. Lisa and Ken sit to their right and Adrienne and Paul to their left. Taylor starts making a drunken ass of herself in front of Chris Botti by talking (in her annoyingly loud voice) about Brandi (her arch-nemesis) and how she’s slept with everyone in Beverly Hills. Yolanda thinks there’s nothing uglier than a drunk woman, referring to Taylor. David keeps the party chatter going by telling everyone how he and Yolanda met (they were introduced by Mohammed after he and Yolanda were divorced), and regaling them with music-related stories. I would be in heaven right about then and some of the guests seemed in awe.
After dinner, Yolanda gets them to gather in a circle for some music. Some of the guests didn’t get the memo that when there are professional musicians there, you don’t participate, you just enjoy the show. Personally, I would be a little intimidated singing out loud in that group, and I can sing. Anyway, David sets them straight and Taylor takes offense and makes it all about her. When they start to play/sing Danny Boy, Taylor makes it known, via Paul, she doesn’t want to hear that sad song. That’s Yolanda’s cue to draw the party to a close. She’s not going to sit there and let her husband and her other guests be insulted by the likes of Taylor Armstrong. The party ends with a rousing rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
The episode ends with Lisa and Ken having a conversation about Lisa’s upcoming sit-down with Adrienne. Ken doesn’t look well to me. Lisa is expecting to hear the two little words, “I’m sorry,” or the meeting is going to be as short as Adrienne is. Unless the apology is forthcoming, Lisa is out of there.
I loved tonight’s episode. Even Taylor’s lack of manners didn’t ruin it for me. As Yolanda says, “and now we go to bed.”
Week 9, Kooky Fusion Dance and Rumbas & Tangos to Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad.’ By COCFarm
I’m going to get wordy…prepare yourselves!
Tuesday night is a double elimination, so we will be saying goodbye to two fabulous stars & dancers and will be down to three heading into next week. There are two dances this week. First up is the fusion between a dance that has not been danced yet this season and a theme. They are all a bit ‘out there.’
Dance 1: Fusion
Melissa & Tony: “Caveman” Hustle. First, they are dressed in animal pelt costumes around boulders and fire. A T-Rex is digitized into the beginning, which sent both dogs into a frenzy in this household. The dance starts out quite slow…and a bit disjointed to me. They have their caveman bits, and then do a version of the hustle. They don’t always seem to connect.
Bruno: Wobbly turns 9, CA: Loved it…9, Len: Likes it. 9.5, for a Total: 27.7
Shawn & Derek: “Knight Rider” Bhangra:
I was on the FLOOR for this one. Holy Moly, it was wild. If you think of any Bollywood dance, that is much of what Bhangra will remind you of, yet it has a ton of squats, multiples in a row with arm & leg movements that have nothing to do with ballroom. This is by far the most complicated dance and the judges are all ecstatic that Shawn is finally out of breath. You should watch this dance if you get a chance. My only complaint is aside from Derek’s jacket, you totally miss Knight Rider since the theme song is done Indian style, so it is virtually unrecognizable. All 10’s for a Total: 30.
Apolo & Karina: “Big Top” Jazz:
Apolo looks like a mime and I’m not loving this dance. He has a minor slip at the beginning. They do a cool spider move. It’s disjointed and almost seems to stop to switch gears. I’m not alone in this since Carrie Ann feels the same, however Bruno feels that was the intention and loves it. CA 8.5, Len 9, Bruno 9.5 for a Total: 27.
Emmitt & Cheryl: “Espionage” Lindy Hop:
They dance to ‘Secret Agent Man’ and are dressed James Bond style, which of course, is humorous because you can’t imagine James Bond dancing the Lindy. That’s pretty much how it felt…odd, but well done. Bruno calls it a Looney Tune version of James Bond and I have to agree! 9’s across the board Total: 27
Kelly & Val: “Surfer” Flamenco:
Their dance was very Flamenco with very little surf until the end when they rip away traditional flamenco wardrobe to bathing suits and they sort of stomp dance in a shallow pool of water. Val is only wearing a boy short speedo. He then kept hiding behind Kelly, who ends their dance laying in the pool of water. No one loves it. It is more Paso then Flamenco, but Len has taken a happy pill tonight and likes it better than the other two. Len 9, CA 8, Bruno 8.5 Total: 25.5
Dance 2, dances to Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ Katherine Jackson is in the audience and between commercial breaks, other dancers perform to bonus tracks that are on the 25 anniversary issue of ‘Bad.’ I feel horribly old suddenly.
Melissa & Tony: Argentine Tango to “Dirty Diana”
These two are going for it with some risky interesting lifts. The first is Melissa above Tony and then sort of swirls down his body…very cool. There seemed to be some fumbles in their lifts but the judges don’t call them out. It was very complicated but beautiful. All the judges loved it and are impressed with the wild lifts. 10’s across the board for aTotal: 30
Shawn & Derek: Argentine Tango to “Bad”
They dance fairly flawlessly to their routine, which does not have the lifts of Melissa’s tango, but focuses more on formation. I’m surprised they did not do lifts seeing as she is a gymnast. Everyone loves it by Carrie Ann who says it is lacking passion. I have to agree, but it was a beautiful dance. CA gives a 9 with Len and Bruno giving 10’s for a Total: 29
Apolo & Karina: Rumba to “Man In The Mirror”
Loved their dance witch almost seemed as though they just wanted to go out and enjoy their last dance together because they think they might be out tomorrow night. It was beautiful. It works for them. The judges love that they kept it simply, not flashy but full of passion. Total: 30
Emmitt & Cheryl: Ballroom Tango to “Leave me Alone”
Seems a bit slow, similar to Melissa’s first dance. If Shawn was lacking emotion, then I think this was too. I don’t get the dancing in front of mirror. Len explains that this is a Ballroom Tango which can not have lifts like an Argentine Tango. The season is ending and I just got that there are two different types of Tangos! Carrie Ann and Bruno say the footwork and holds could have been better. 9’s all the way around for a Total: 27
Kelly & Val: Rumba to “I Can’t Stop Loving You”
There is something going on with these two. Seriously. They must be an item.
Flowy clothing, sparkles, red soft light, very romantic dancing in a circular stage which makes it more intimate and soft. In her talking head, Kelly says she felt called out for winning the mirror ball in the first season. Bruno says it’s lusty, Carrie Ann thinks it’s beautiful, vulnerable. Len loved the control, emotion, speed in & then dramatic slow down. 9.5’s from all Total: 28.5
The total scores out of a possible 60 are:
- Shawn & Derek: 59
- Melissa & Tony: 57.5
- Apolo & Karina: 57
- Emmitt & Cheryl: 54
- Kelly & Val: 54
I am sticking with my original preference from the beginning of the season, that I’d like to see the 3 women in the final. Of all of the stars, only Melissa hasn’t won the mirror ball. I’d be happy to see that happen. Shawn is technically brilliant and seems to be the hands on favorite to win. Kelly was semi robbed the first season of Dancing with the Stars when they called her win into question and made her have a dance off when so many people complained that she won. I have a soft spot for the women this time around and hope one of the three win it all. Nothing against Apolo and Emmitt, but the women just had more passion and drive this season.
Paula Abdul is back tomorrow night with her four hit songs being featured in a 1 hour show, where, at the end, two stars will be heading home. Next week is the fun freestyle dance with the mirror ball awarded the following night.
