Kim Zolciak explains why she wasn’t at Kandi Burruss’ party

In an exclusive interview, Kim Zolciak this afternoon explained why she missed Kandi Burruss’ concert performance at Tongue & Groove, which aired last night on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

“My daughter Brienna was really sick that night,” Kim said. She said she had called Kandi earlier and that Kandi was cool.

“She’s understanding,” Kim said. “I wouldn’t miss something like that especially after all the work she did on ‘Tardy for the Party.’ I wouldn’t just not show up.”

The producers did not explain why Kim wasn’t there. It gave the impression she just callously skipped it.

What upset her more: Lisa’s snide comment that Kim may have gotten a disease, a joke referencing Kim’s “cancer” scare she talked about at the first season reunion. “Who talks like that?” she said. “That’s so low! She’s a mother and a wife. That’s not funny. It’s a little too much for me. It’s one thing to make fun of somebody and make it cut but to really insult them…”

Her song “Tardy for the Party” is No. 3 on the iTunes dance charts. That’s a sub-genre so it’s unclear what that translates to when it comes to sales.

Kim is full of crap because why would Kandi be still looking for her after her performance if she so called informed Kandi “earlier” that she notified her that she wasn’t coming. Stop the lies Kim!

Oh Ok, I thought you might have gotten your old job back as an adult entertainer. Where are your kids baby daddy anyway, you wish it was Little Poppa but it is not. The Dance charts are a joke on itunes, nobody buys that garbage. ‘Tardy’ is all smoke and mirrors, your daughter could have pulled off that farce.

This is just lame. The show is lame, the song is lame. How starved for entertainment have we become. Who’s “real housewife” is Kim anyway? Last I heard she was grindin’ up on Southside Steve. Hey Kim, Samantha Foxx called and she want’s her whole act back.

Kim doesn’t need Kandi anymore. She has her ONE HIT WONDER song!! Kim is such a phony. And does she really think that Big Poppa is going to marry her? He’s still married. She’s just a mistress!!

Maybe he meant she called her earlier TODAY? She may have called her earlier today to explain since today is when everyone’s making a big deal about it.

How legit is this interview -they don’t even have her child’s name right – she has two daughters, Briele (sp?) and Arianna – not Brienna – so to be in quotes is B.S.

She couldn’t have been talking about today because the show was taped months ago and I’m sure she’s seen and heard from kandi since then.

I thought Ne Ne was so real last season, but all I see this season is hate and jealousy. Green is no a good color for her. I love Kandi and I feel like she had sympathy for Kim because everyone on the show had so many bad things to say about her. I think she really sees the true Kim. Will they be that close now?

Kandi is a big girl and believe me she can hold her on. Now days you just have to feed people from a long handle spoon. Like NeNe said she will find out about Kim. Not that I’m on NeNe side but, the light will shine and Kandi will always be more professional, classy and meek.

Kandi does actually make her own money and maybe Lisa too, but they are the only ones with real jobs. lol. I would like to see how much they donate and volunteer to charity since they spend money so freely. Ne Ne made a comment about Kandi being ghetto and that was like the pot calling the kettle black. lol…Shes from Athens so that makes her country-ghetto. With all the money she spends someone needs to suggest a new hairstyle…maybe a better quality of weave. It looks like a regular 27pc

Pure, unadulterated trailer trash.

You don’t screw another man’s husband; regardless if he’s intending to leave his wife or not.

Her day will come. Karma is a b*tch. And it’s about to bark.

Well, I meant “another woman’s husband”.

But, since I’ve always thought Kim was a man in drag, maybe my first post was more accurate.

But, wait. I don’t think any drag queen would go out looking as bad as Kim.

I don’t know if the comment is real or not but kim leaves her kids with the nanny all the time what would be wrong this time Kim? Especially since Kandi did so much for you. I do absolutely love Kandi, I love to hear her voice and I will be buying her CD. I even just like to hear her talk. I used to love NeNe and I still want to, but she is not acting very nice right now but I do feel that she is a good person inside.

Yeah, it does sound fishy why would she be asking after her? But somebody tell me this. How C H E A P is Lisa. I can’t believe she lets her parents live in that horrible little house compared to her nouveau mansion. I thought she was the coolest until I saw that. Now when I look at her I, I think of her siblings and parents, and how she doesn’t kick down a penny.

Kim is a user and, most of all, a liar. I’d never believe a woman who is dating a married man and PROUD of it. She used Sheree last season. Now she’s using Kandi. She’s certainly using Big Poppa. Hope Kandi gets a clue and sets her straight. Also, what’s up with all her “help” being African American? She’s just not classy to me, no matter how much Dolce and diamonds she wears.

season one told me she had her it together but season 2 says she is as bad as the rest.
sorry lisa you are a flake. closet freak…please, quit wasting our time!

About Lisa's parents house

October 3rd, 2009

To eliminate the ignorance for the person who made the comment about Lisa’s parents house. The house is in California. And even for a house in Inglewood, her parents house is worth at LEAST $400,000 but judging from the surrounding it is probably worth more. The size of a home is not an issue in the LA area where less does actually cost 4x more than here in Atlanta. And judging from the area, her parents live in a decent area. All of Inglewood is not ghetto just as all of Atlanta is not ghetto as some would have you to believe. And maybe her parents don’t want to live off their kid’s wealth as some mooching, greedy parents. And whose to say their home worth over a half million is not paid for? Obviously,you have never lived outside the south judging from your statement. Ignorance is a bliss, out of sight, out of mind.

Kim is cool in the show b/c it provides entertainment. I was highly heated (in other choice words; I didn’t read the fine print on swearing lol) that for someone who can’t sing for crap; then someone like me who can…she is holding a no. 3 spot on itunes! Call it what you want, jealousy, envy…I don’t care, but she needs to go back and figure out something else to do. Kandi did her a serious favor by hooking her song up the way she did. Anyone notice that Kim isn’t talking about her dream of being a country star anymore?
When it comes to Kandi’s performance…we can all read and obviously we all watch the show. Why would she ask if she was here and she was told?? I highly doubt that Kandi would make herself look that dumb or naive to what was going on. I pray that God keeps her and comforts her after the lose of her ex-fiance, AJ. I agree with NeNe that Kim definitely is fun to party with; but a bs’er of a friend.

Yes MzMe, AJ was Kandi’s ex-fiance. Check out her interview with Essence last month. I’m sure she still held a deep place in her heart for him though, especially since she had custody of his twins.

Kim is a joke. Straight lies and no talent. Big Poppa picked the right one and I love the way he’s giving his wife all this free (video) evidence to use against him in court if he ever really decides to divorce her and marry white trash, I mean Kim.

I too offer my condolences to Kandi and to the Jewell Family. She is the ONLY wife on this show with ANY class, and that includes constant-trouble-instigator-trying- to-pass-as-a-peacemaker-fake-behind LISA. I don’t know who I can’t stand more NeNe or Lisa. These shows were taped months ago. Recent interviews with Kandi don’t indicate any rift behind she and Kim. On the other hand there appears to definitely be one between Kandi and the self proclaimed HBIC (Head-Female Dog-In-Charge), the one with camera balls that was feeling the love in Season One.

Kandi is the only one with real manners on the show. My heart goes out to her…her ex-finance AJ was killed last night. I believer her mother had a lot to do with thier break-up because she would not give him a chance….I hope she can find forgiveness in her heart.

For far as the rest of them, Kim was wrong for not showing up at Kandi’s premiere. Kandi went to bat for her when the rest of the crew poked funny at her singing. NeeNee is loud and ghetto yet has the nerves to talk about Kandi, hell I think she is just jealous. Lisa claims she is just a business woman but business woman are leaders, not followers and this season, seems all she does is follow NeeNee dumb ass and does whatever it takes to stay in NeeNee’s good grace. Then there is Sheree. I believe she is really broke now but what’s to still fake the funk. She is a hater to the 1st degree and not showing up to Lisa’s fashion show was just tacky and looking at those arms, I find myself wondering if she is indeed a man.

They all get on my nerves expect for Kandi.

RIP Ashley Jewell (AJ)!!!

Death comes in 3s. My condolences to Kandi for her tragic losses. 2009 has been the yeat of death for so many.

Do any of these women who don’t seem to really live in Atlanta have a REAL home of their own? I have read where Lisa, NeNe and Shree have all moved out of their mansions (or cookiecutter McMansions) since Season One for different $$$$ reasons. The show is really a good train wreck to watch. And who decorated their havens? Dwight, the fashion queen? Was Dwight a former drag queen in Atlanta? Why hasn’t the black lady Mayor been seen on an episode of Atlanta Housewives? Why don’t these fake socialites ever show up at the High Museum of Art or the Atlanta Symphony? Maybe they think they were slumming with regular folk?? Any of these “girls” ever been to parties in the homes of Tuxedo Drive? Why haven’t these b#tches ever been invited to lunch at The Piedmont Driving Club? Or just the Swan Coach House? Don’t the best of society ladies do this kind of thing? I think I have a different idea of what society is suppose to be in the REAL ATL. Glad this trashy show (The Real Housewives of Atlanta) doesn’t offer smell-a-vision or my own house would stink. Enjoy the pole girls!

First giving all respect to Kandi and her family right now. She is a remarkable woman, mother, and friend. This is a drama field show and its meant for everyone to be pulled in by negativity. Who cares about why kim didn’t show. Like someone commented this show was recorded several months ago and Kandi and Kim are fine. People love drama and misery loves company. Fix your own sh** before you pick your poison with these ladies. Kim sleeps with a married man and that’s wrong as he**, however she takes damn good care of those little girls and they come first. The two messy Heifers are NENE and LISA. Lisa better hope her damn husband aint on the DL.

GA Girl – I agree with you! Big Poppa was the cause of her no show. If her daughter was sick she would have enough time to call Kandi before the show. Why days after when the “wives” do their individual camera sit downs did Kandi not state why Kim was missing from her performance? Kim lies and lies.

Omg J Eubanks, that coonery that these girls display isn’t allowed anywhere near any of the events or venues that you listed and thank God Almighty. Did you see the display that NeNe, Sheree and Kim had in the supposedly upscale restaurant, they even took it to the street? I don’t think they have behavior like that anymore in the projects of Atlanta because even they have been revamped to give Atlanta a better image. J, you just made it worse for Tuxedo Drive and the other named venues and events because they read these posts to find new info and places to go. It’s bad enough that all of them are crabbing on each other, there is no need to send this coonery to other parts of the city for all of the people to be exposed to. NeNe’s husband do not need any more “clients” to scam money off of, Kim does not need additional men to use to fund her lifestyle, Sheree is on the prowl looking for someone to provide her with seven figures and poor Lisa she can’t make up her mind who she wants to stab in the back with her acting so innocent with her deer in the headlights look and her stupid statements like “what happened with you and Kandi”, knowing all along that she was there to witness. She needs to keep acting dumb so that Keith Sweat can keep those kids because when the courts see the SHlT starting stuff that she is doing then they will know that she is continuing her same antics that she was doing to get the kids taken in the first place.

God Bless you Kandi but I must say this one thing that my mom has always told me, “If you play in trash long enough it will get in your eyes.” This isn’t what you need to promote your career, the green eyed monster (NeNe) is constantly lurking. The public don’t like what they are seeing in these money hungry wh0res and will not want to associate themselves with anything that you do because you are involved with these shady characters, oops ladies and I use that term lightly. Even you have spoken about the change in your behavior since being around them, to consider your own words. God Speed and Be Blessed, You are especially in my prayers. Much love!

(Notice how I left off Dwight, even though he wants to be a houseWIFE he will never be, even if he has a sex change and I see why he is NeNe’s friend, both are faker than a $3 bill)

And to Watching HouseWifes comment have some class about yourself, just because he was up in a stripclub doesn’t make him to be bad person. He still didn’t deserved to die and i’m pretty damn sure that Kandi mother didn’t want that either. So growup with those stupid comments and let the familt mourned i their own way.He is someone Son,someone Brother,someone Dad,someone Uncle,someone Nephew ,He was someone

I hate that people blew NENE up to make her feel like she was unstoppable and “so real”! B please! You fake as sh** and so is lisa. Ewww let me stop bc I really don’t blog, but I saw this and had to comment
