The following day, 2/22/09, on Gawker.com an announcement was made:
Real Housewives Star Loses Her Blog
Kim Zolciak, the home wrecking, fake-cancer-surviving star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has lost control of her blog to a surly "webmaster" demanding payment — according to someone at her (former?) PR firm.
Whether he really was surly or just wanted to be paid makes little difference now since shortly thereafter, this site disappeared from the Internet. But don't fear, Kim& Zolciak fans, her posts started up shortly on another website. Go to: kimzolciak.com/blog to read about what Kim Zolciak is now up to.
But for all you super loyal fans, we were able to restore this historic site with some archived content thanks to the Web Archive Project. They award grants to preserve culturally significant websites and keep them live. That certainly matches the description of this newly preserved legacy website which has withstood all the scandals and fun that is Kim. Thanks to the SEO gurus of TNG/Earthling Rev Sale (who is a huge Kim fan) and Bob Sakayama who provided the technical expertise for both development and optimization of this restoration. TNG/E also contributed the cms supporting the site.
Kim Zolciak is a mother, an aspiring actress, singer and is also one of the housewives on Bravo TV’s highest rated docu-drama series ever, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

A Shout Out from The View
Thank you to Bonnie Hunt for always bringing attention to my antics. I love the lady and hey it is better to be talked about than not be talked of at all.
See what they had to say about me, after the uncomfortable Barbara Walters & Bonnie Hunt scene...

Interview With the Sunday Paper
The conspicuous consumption, the rampant egos, the backstabbing—what’s not to love/hate? The Bravo network struck gold last fall with this reality series following the lives of five nouveau-riche divas, and struck a nerve with Atlantans, who were vocal in their disdain but unable to stop watching. (Metro residents can take some measure of solace in the fact that the so-called “housewives” live not in Atlanta but its prosperous northern suburbs.) And while NeNe Leakes was arguably the show’s breakout star, its lightning rod has been Kim Zolciak, whose shifting loyalties, country-music aspirations and mysterious sugar daddy elevated her above Britney, Jamie Lynn and Jessica in the pantheon of “hot mess” icons.—K.F.M.
Q What would you say is people’s biggest misconception about you from the show?
A That I’m a gold-digger, and that I’m not a friend. I think they saw me bouncing from NeNe [Leakes] to Sheree [Whitfield]. NeNe and I have reconciled, we’ve talked about everything, we’re great friends, so maybe in the second season they may see me and NeNe back together. I think they see a different image of my real character.
Q What’s going on with your music?
A I’m working with a bunch of new people, which is very exciting but very, very stressful. I kind of knew Dallas Austin a little bit before I started to work with him, so it was a little easier. Now I’m working with all-new people and hopefully, I think we’re going to end up recording [during the] second season, and I think it’ll probably be out in the fall. Summertime, fall, when the season airs. I’ll be able to record on the show and then release it beforehand.
Q Any names we might know, people you’re working with?
A You’ll definitely know who I’m working with. But my contract’s a little tight right now so we’re negotiating that and when that contract’s signed and over and done with, then I’ll definitely blast who I’m working with.
Q How has your life changed because of the show?
A My life has completely changed in a very short period of time. My relationship has suffered, you know with Big Poppa. It’s been very difficult. You go from having a private life to all of a sudden, it’s all over. And especially with him being a mystery, or a secret, people have really tried to snap a photo or tried to get him and me together. My children have had a really hard time with people in school, they go to a very strict private school.
You can’t even go to the grocery store, you know? Which is flattering, because without my fans I wouldn’t ever be where I’m at today. But there’s no more going to the grocery store, in and out. Even McDonald’s drive-thrus, you know? People recognize you, they want a picture. But all in all, it’s been a great experience.
Q Can you give us a preview of Season Two?
A I think Season Two’s going to be a lot different. I think we all learned from Season One, the mistakes that we made or we didn’t take it very seriously at times. And I think that when you’re presenting an image to America or you’re doing a reality show you’re going to get tore up, up one side and down the other. I think we’re all going to make changes. A new residence for some. Big Poppa may make an appearance, which is pretty exciting. And I have a big cover shoot that will be on the show. Very big.
Q Can you talk about that yet?
A I can’t talk about it, but it’ll be huge. It is huge. It’s very exciting. It’s something I’ve wanted to do my whole life.
Q You say on the show people don’t necessarily see your true character.
A Was I playing a character? No. All the footage you saw was in essence accurate. However, we filmed for a good four or five months, 12 hours a day, five days a week, and they take all these hours and combine them into seven one-hour episodes. So ultimately they take the worst parts, or the parts that are going to get controversy or what have you, and release that. So they created a character for me. I can’t sing, I’ve got a mystery sugar daddy, I drink, I smoke like crazy, I’m not a good friend—they created a character.
Q Anything you want to clear up for our readers?
A I never drink and drive. Ever. I mean, I have two little girls to live for, and the footage that they showed of that … And I can definitely sing. I think the footage they showed of Dallas and me was horrendous. We were in the studio for many hours that day, and they should have shown me giving it my all and not just really in essence speaking and getting comfortable with the equipment initially. But I’m ready to come back and show them who I am.
Q Are you still in touch with Dallas Austin?
A You know, Dallas spoke out about me on his MySpace page, which was pretty rough. I’m still not sure where that came from. Dallas has always been great to my girls, and I respect him. I’m not really sure. I didn’t reach out to him, and I haven’t, just because it’s been so stressful for me. But the only thing I can come up with is, I was pretty humiliated with the footage, too. And Dallas working with the people that he’s worked with in the past, and seeing that footage, it’s like they made a joke out of Dallas and I. And he was frustrated or humiliated by it. And I think, maybe that’s where the anger came from. I’m not sure why this all went on.

Hello, I had a photo shoot for the Sunday Paper today, for the cover with local Rock DJ Steve. He and I on the cover will be on stands February 8th. So, check it out. A big thanks to Sheena for doing my makeup, GREAT JOB. Speaking of makeup, I receive a ton of emails about my makeup so I figured I would answer the question whether I do my own makeup or not.
Yes, I usually do my own but for covers, appearances, etc. I use my makeup artist Sheena, from www.atlanta-makeup.com, and she is a doll.
Tomorrow night I am making an appearance at Outwrite Bookstore in Midtown Atlanta around 7:30 PM to support my dear friend Jeff Fisher. Jeff filmed some of the RHOA in the beginning, and he is now releasing his dvd called "Killer Movie." I am honored and excited to have been asked to attend this wonderful event. Jeff is an incredible person and very down to earth. I hope to see so many of you there
Until next time...

Bonnie Hunt - The Full Version Good Morning,
I woke up to Bonnie Hunt doing her parody of me on American Idol. I laughed my butt off. She is hysterical.
I loved the "contact lens comment." Check out the video below:
What a great way to start my day :)
I will sing for the first time on her show if given the opportunity. So stay tuned for that.
I will keep you posted.
I have a busy day ahead so I must go until next time.

I have received so many emails and comments regarding my single that was due out the first of the year, so I figured I would update you.
My single "Tightrope" is/was owned by Dallas Austin. He apparently felt ill towards me after seeing the show. And I would have to agree that the footage made us both look rather ridiculous.
However, Dallas spoke out in a negative way towards me and obviously I will no longer be working with him. I have since connected with some of the music industry's greats in preparing my first single. I am scheduled to return to the studio with a better focus soon. But, it will most likely be around the time filming starts for Season 2 (next month). So you will likely have to wait to hear the finished product when Season 2 airs sometime this fall.
On a side note, I know what I am capable of and look forward to proving myself. I think America will be surprised with the finished product. How can you not be? After the footage that aired it appeared as though I was incapable of ever having a singing career. You will be pleasantly surprised, I promise...
Lastly, give my hair a rest!!! How many people wear fake hair, hair extensions, clip ins etc??? I LOVE MY HAIR and will continue to wear it and could give two shits with what you all have to say about it. Its fake and it will stay that way and I love it. Period...end of story......
Until next time.............

Thank You Bonnie Hunt
Bonnie Hunt is a fan of mine. She loves poking fun at me.
Previously she did a parody of NeNe and I with Niecy Nash, and now she has attempted to tackle me once again. This time I am auditioning for American Idol.
Hilarious!!! You can catch the full episode next Wednesday on "The Bonnie Hunt Show."
(I am going to make my singing debut on this show sometime soon.)

W Buckhead Grand Opening
What an incredible night I had last night at the opening of the W Hotel in Buckhead...
Upon arriving I was rushed to the purple carpet at the front of this gorgeous new hotel where I was asked to take photos with actress Michelle Trachtenberg. (My daughters love her!) Believe it or not, Michelle is actually a fan of the show.
Then Rande Gerber joined the press line along with Thom Filicia. (Is Cindy Crawford lucky or what?)
Before I knew it I had been on the small purple carpet for 15-minutes and was asked to stay a little bit longer to take photos with Sophia Bush and Olivia Palermo.
Just as I was departing the carpet cast mate Sheree arrived and it was off to a few more photos before finally heading inside.
The hotel inside was stunning!!! NeNe even managed to show up. And despite her recently speaking about our supposed 'lack of friendship,' it was like old times.
Overall, I am glad to have met many of you and had been invited to such a fabulous event. I can't wait to start filming Season 2 of RHOA next month.
Check out a video of me from last night on the local WSB-TV .
AND, tonight join me as I will be making an appearance aTaboo2 on Roswell Rd here in Atlanta. I hope all of you in the area can make it.
Back to LALA land I go...
(My dress and shoes were both by Versace.)

My Golden Dress
I arrived into LA yesterday morning after a long flight and had to head right to another fitting for tonight's big Golden Globes Awards show.
I took a photo of both dresses I am deciding upon off my cell phone, so forgive me for the quality, but hopefully you will get the point.
Which do you like better, Dress #1 or #2??? Help me decide, I have only hours and counting!!!
Which Dress Should I Wear?

The Golden Invite
I am sooo excited because I was asked last night to interview the stars arrivals for the official Golden Globes after-party this weekend in Hollywood for Extra TV.
This will be my first experience at a major award show and I can't tell you how excited and honored I am to be part of it.
You will see a brand new me this weekend. Shocking and scary, but change is good and I am ready to debut the new me with you very soon. I have to go back to fittings, oh what will a girl wear???
I will put up some photos this evening of my choices and you can help me decide!

There are always going to be rumors about me and my life out there, but this one was simply to ridiculous not to respond to.
Mediatakeout.com is reporting today that Michael Lohan and I are dating. Let me be the first to say this is sooo far from the truth. I have never even met Michael. The only thing we have in common is the same publicist.
Additionally, Michael is a very happily engaged man to his gorgeous fiance Erin. I will be going to Sundance to be part of a celebrity poker tournament that the two will be at, but Michael and I are in no way going together as a couple.
Maybe we will all end up friends, but that would be it! So please don't believe everything you read, unless you see it here first!
Bringing in 2009
This year I brought 2009 in with many friends and family in the Atlanta area at a party thrown by the local and fabulous Jezebel Magazine.
WSB-TV caught all the action and you can CLICK HERE to watch the video if you like.
Hope your New Year's celebration was just as enjoyable!!!
