I’m curious, why isn’t Patti Stanger married yet? Maybe cause she’s abrasive and too bossy? Who knows? Although she has a steady boyfriend, they haven’t made it down the aisle yet.
A few interesting tidbits about our girl. Patti frequently berates her male and female clients when they don’t live up to her standards on “The Millionaire’s Club”. According to Wikipedia.com, many of her clients leave frustrated at Patti’s over the top behavior never to return again. (That would certainly annoy me if I was paying her $20k to $150k.)
What’s REALLY JUICY!!! On March 5, 2008 TMZ.com reported that two females, “Cidney” and “Marcela”, who were actively being “introduced” by Patti to her millionaire clients were not who they were purported to be. The former, who was described as “a wholesome Jewish girl with a Masters in Journalism” was also a Playboy model (although that fact was mentioned in the episode). And it was alleged that Marcela resembled an escort working in the Miami area, although no proof was ever provided to substantiate that claim.
What do they expect for a gold digging service? My bet is she’s a Leo or Aries. What do you think? Either way, I love the show."
Here’s what he wrote on http://www.kimzolciakonline.com/2009/03/final-post-on-kimzolciakonlinecom.html:
My former client Kim Zolciak and I have settled our differences which includes voluntarily dismissing all pending legal claims against one another. Our past grievances were due to a misunderstanding that regrettably got blown out of proportion. Going forward, I wish Ms. Zolciak the very best with respect to her acting and overall entertainment endeavors.
And the photo accompanying it:
Jonathan Jaxson (left) with Kim Zolciak in more halcyon days.
“We buried the hatchet,” Jaxson said. “I wish her the best.” I’ve left messages with both to get a reaction and will update this blog if I get any.
“You have to take precautions to protect yourself,” he said, justifying his initial lawsuit. “I’m sorry it got to where it did, but I’m no stranger to scandal.”
No response yet from Zolciak, who hasn’t tended to respond to me lately.
Jaxson, who started the Web site, plans to shut the site down for good on March 30. She still has http://blogs.ajc.com/radio-tv-talk/2009/03/02/33-kim-zolciak-claims-her-web-site-hijacked-by-former-publicist-who-says-he-wasnt-paid/.

I have a huge crush on Anderson Cooper. And what makes him even more loveable is his obsession with The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In this clip from the Ellen Degeneres Show, the Silver Fox dishes that Nene Leakes drunk dialed him from the back of a limo. Priceless!
- She looks just like a tranny I saw in the Lucky Cheng Drag Show in Vegas
- Her wig/hair is heinous.....you are too friggin old to wear your hair like a Patty Playpal doll...for those of you who remember
- Her makeup is totally tranny style....it just makes her look harder and older...lighten up on the makeup
- I know that she has a makeover service...why hasnt she used it herself?
- In light of her 99% success rate(hard to believe), why hasn't Patty walked down the aisle...bullshit on the notion that she is not ready. Don't believe it.
- Her clothing is totally tacky and cheap looking....too short, tight and low cut for her body type. You are in Beverly Hills, Patty....why don't you invest some of your ridiculous fees and hire a stylist for both you and your mohawked COO and his goth girlfriend?
- How about some charm school lessons? Perhaps you can consult with RHONY's Countess Luann.
- How about some basic grammar/diction lessons?
Kudos to Gilmore at http://www.prettyontheoutside.com/ once again for the fabulous pen and ink caricatures of Patty. This show is over the top ridiculous!! Your thoughts?
We’re hearing that Leakes will write the tome with New York Times best-selling author Denene Millner (perhaps best known for writing “The Sistahs’ Rules: Secrets For Meeting, Getting and Keeping a Good Black Man” and co-authoring “What Brothers Think, What Sistahs Know: The Real Deal on Love and Relationships”) for Touchstone Fireside. Look for the book to hit stores this July.You’ve been warned."

Kim Zolciak was supposed to make a “special appearance” at an event Saturday in which attendees donate gently used shoes for a charity she started to help battered women. But Zolciak reneged, flying to the Bahamas this morning instead.
“Kim has gone out of town for some mental R&R,” said Cori Davenport, her good friend and co-founder of Shoes for Shattered Hearts, which she and Zolciak started last year. “She’s going to make it up to Monkee’s,” the shoe store hosting the event.
At 2 p.m. EST, I called the hotel where Zolciak is staying in the Bahamas and got a confirmation from the front desk that she was there. As of Friday afternoon, Zolciak had not directly contacted Jaci Shiendling, who came up with the idea and is organizing the event, about her change of schedule. This is the foundation’s first official event.
“It’s a sucker punch to the stomach,” Shiendling told me today about Zolciak’s absence. “But my goal is to get shoes to these women. I hope we get more boxes of shoes than we know what to do with.”
The event is advertised on the Shoes for Shattered Hearts Web site. It’s set at Monkee’s at Sugarloaf, a high-end shoe store that’s been around for 14 months.
Buy Shoes - Change livesShoe shopping Event on March 21st 1pm to 4pmSpecial Appearance by REAL HOUSEWIFE OF ATLANTA’S star Kim ZolciakCo Founder of Shoes for Shattered HeartsMonkee’s of Sugarloaf6601 SUGARLOAF PKWYDULUTH, GA 30097Phone: 770-497-0024www.monkeesofsugarloaf.com
And here’s what was on the Jezebel magazine events listing:
Shoes for Shattered HeartsHelping give women a foot in the right directionBe There: Monkee’s of Sugarloaf - 6601 Sugarloaf Pkwy, DuluthWhen: Saturday, March 21 from 1-4 PMExpect: Join Shoes for Shattered Hearts at Monkee’s of Sugarloaf Saturday, March 21 from 1-4 PM. Bring in a pair of gently used shoes and receive 20% off* of a new pair! Special appearance by Bravo’s Real Housewife of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak (founder of Shoes for Shattered Hearts)More Info: (770) 497-0024
What’s odd about all this is NeNe Leakes, Kim’s “frenemy” on the show, has a similar non-profit group called Twisted Hearts Foundation, based on Leakes’ own experiences as a battered woman in the past.
Shiendling said Leakes on Thursday coincidentally came to the store Monkee’s minus Bravo TV cameras. (The show is currently filming season two.) The owner Jacqueline Toulon asked Leakes if she was coming to the event. Toulon said Leakes asked, “What event?” Leakes, she said, didn’t seem upset but told told Toulon about her own, very similar, foundation. Toulon then tried to sell her some shoes but got no sale.
Mediatakeout.com reported that there was some sort of altercation last night between NeNe and Kim. Might this foundation overlap be the crux of the argument?
Davenport said she had no idea what issues were going on between Kim and NeNe, that she has only been with NeNe in the presence of Kim.
“I will definitely be there to support Monkee’s and Shoes For Shattered Hearts,” Davenport said. “I want this to be a great event.”
When I asked whether Davenport was ever considered to be one of the housewives, she said, “I have never spoken to Bravo about being a housewife.” Did she want to be one of the reality show housewives? “I am not even going to comment on that one.”
I have emailed NeNe for comment but she hasn’t responded to me lately. Maybe she will this time."

The Atlanta Music Festival Association was forced to ban Sheree Whitfield from her own party. The event scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 7:30PM will go on as scheduled without the reality star. The Atlanta Music Festival sights irreconcilable differences as their reasons for banning her from the party. Tony Shorter, Executive Director of the Atlanta Music Festival Association said, “Ms. Whitfield is way too difficult to work with and needs a reality check.” The star-studded event “A Brand New Me Soiree,” was originally scheduled to be taped as a divorce party honoring Ms. Whitfield who recently divorced former Atlanta Falcon player Bob Whitfield as part of the Bravo Network reality show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Sheree Whitfield's Shuttered Retail Store Bella Azul Allegedly In Tax Trouble With Georgia Department of Revenue
Tuesday, March 10, 2009
The 6-foot-tall, 40-year-old former model, horse fancier and one-time marathon runner got into a fight last week with her boyfriend, 30-year-old Nick Stefanov, and clocked him, giving him a black eye and opening a blood-gushing gash on his left cheek, according to the records.
Stefanov fled her apartment on Centre Street after the Tuesday-morning beating and reported the mother of two to cops at the 5th Precinct station.
A source said Bensimon at the time was sporting "a fat lip."
Bensimon surrendered two days later and was charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault. She's due in court March 31.
"We got engaged a couple weeks ago," Stefanov told one friend. "We got into an argument that escalated and escalated. She hauled off and started swinging. She got a lucky punch on my cheekbone and just split it right open. I went down to the police station covered in blood."
Stefanov declined to speak directly to The Post, but told pals he went to his hometown of Pittsburgh because he was embarrassed to be seen in New York with a black eye and cut face.
"If I had done it to her, I would have been put in jail immediately," Stefanov told his friend.
"My injuries are worse than Rihanna's - and Chris Brown was charged with two felonies."
After dating Bensimon for nearly four years, and being a surrogate father to her two daughters, taking them to soccer games and ballet classes, Stefanov isn't ready to end their relationship.
But when he got back to New York a few days later, he learned there was a restraining order that prevents both parties from contacting each other.
"I sent her an e-mail, and the cops called me and said you can't do that," Stefanov told a friend. "It's snowballing into something no one ever intended."
Bensimon's lawyer, Stephen Turano, called the charges "unfounded."
A Bravo spokeswoman said the show "doesn't comment on the private lives of our talent."
An e-mail to her ex-husband, fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, who is the father of the couple's two daughters, was not returned.
Kelly Bensimon ran the New York City Marathon in 2007, wrote a book on bikinis and was a columnist for Page Six Magazine.
She also modeled for Elle, Mademoiselle, Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar, and was the face for Clarins."

This says it all regarding Jason Mesnick...Douche Bag of the Decade.
Love it? Hate It? Couldnt' Care Less?
According to Rick Eldredge of Peach Buzz, one of my favorite sources for celebrity dish, Sheree Whitfield has more legal woes as of the beginning of season 2 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Obviously, her brash sense of entitlement doesn't work with her attorneys or the legal system. And her google eyed ex husband is flat broke. Bring on the drama mamas!
"Bravo may have to rename this show “The Legal Woes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
As Buzz readers will recall, “RHA” cast member Sheree Whitfield recently dismissed an appeal that sought alimony from her ex-husband Bob Whitfield, saying the former NFL player was now broke.
Now Sheree herself is being sued for more than $87,000 by her former legal representative for the divorce, Levine & Smith.
The complaint, dated Feb. 2, 2009, and filed at the Superior Court of Fulton County, states that Sheree Whitfield owes $69,343.98 in principal going back to May 10, 2006.
Interest on the unpaid amount, based on a monthly interest rate of 1.5%, is $17,832.93 through January 31, 2009, according to the filing.
According to the complaint: “Defendant’s refusal to pay said debt as agreed constitutes an act of bad faith and has caused the plaintiff unnecessary trouble and expense, thereby entitling plaintiff to an award of its expenses of litigation, including reasonable attorney’s fees in an amount to be proven by the evidence at trial.”
Steven Montalto, the attorney representing Levine & Smith, told us the firm has been unable to find Sheree Whitfield in order to serve her the summons and a copy of the complaint.
Efforts to reach Sheree Whitfield for comment have been unsuccessful.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is currently shooting season two."

Good luck with that. I hope Tiny makes a cameo next season! The producers could play it off as her coming over to borrow an extra trough.
In other RHOA news, a law firm is seeking $87,176.91 from Sheree Whitfield in unpaid fees. The bitch is broke! Big surprise here.

Rock Star's Soon To Be Ex-Wife and I went to see Slumdog Millionaire on Saturday night(A+++- one of the best movies ever) and before we left her house, she had the television tuned into a show with which I was not familiar.....Toddlers and Tiaras. In a nutshell, it follows trailer trash parents and their poor
I am appalled by the shit these parents actually put their children through.....I think it will psychologically scar the kids forever. All I could think of was poor Jon Benet. Narcissists in training!
The funniest part of the show was a pageant for mothers and daughters. Horrors of horrors. Enter one trailer trash mother who wore a gold lame all in one costume with her fat gut and belly rolls hanging out and twirled a baton in the talent portion. She actually put on a bathing suit and walked the catwalk with big thunderous cellulite thighs. Her hair was long, unkempt and looked like she hadn't had a haircut in years. To top it off, she had let her color grow out so the top part of her hair looked like she was wearing a cap. I screamed and howled in horror! Rocker's Ex couldn't believe how I reacted, but she agreed with me. I think she is not as passionate a fashionista police as I am. And one of the daddies has more estrogen than I do.... fussing over his daughter's frilly dress(probably has an identical one in his closet)....and working on the kid's dance steps telling her to be sexy. Ugh! So, if you have some extra time on your hands for some guilty pleasure tv since The Bachelor and douche bag Jason are gone, tune into Toddlers and Tiaras. I think it originally airs on Tuesday at 10(unfortunately it conflicts with my beloved Nip/Tuck and Real Housewives) but repeats throughout the week. I promise you fashionistas and real moms an escape from reality treat!
Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall… have all signed contracts with New Line Cinema for a second film based on the HBO series and the book by Candace Bushnell; Michael Patrick King, who wrote and directed the first film, has signed on to write the script…. The sequel is planned for a 2010 release.

Opening Scene: Catching Up
The girls meet up in the cafeteria in Hong-Tsu’s $10 Store—formerly Bergdorf Goodman—to fill each other in. Their lives are as rivetingly complicated as always. Carrie describes her comical efforts to have shoes included in her extended COBRA benefits. Charlotte is excited about her and Harry’s move from Manhattan to a three-bedroom garden apartment in Teaneck, New Jersey. Samantha, who now works for a federally funded agency that offers oral sex to unemployed bankers, tells some revealing stories. There is a moment of tension when Miranda wonders aloud whether she and Steve might be able to buy Charlotte’s old condominium at a foreclosure sale, but the two old friends kiss and make up when Miranda adds $2 to the tip for their waitress, who just happens to be Charlotte’s second adopted Chinese daughter, a 42-year-old former train dispatcher named Iris, now supporting her parents by working double shifts at Hong-Tsu’s.
There is a moment of tension when Miranda wonders aloud whether Carrie’s role as director of the Save Prada movement is keeping her from being with Small when he needs her most.
Scene Two: The Great Depression
Tragedy hits Small (the girls’ new nickname for Big, who hasn’t had an erection since September 2008) when Bronx Community College cuts off his financial aid and puts an end to his dream of becoming a refrigerator repairman. The girls quickly convene at Hong-Tsu’s. Charlotte invites Carrie and Small to come out to the “country” for the weekend and stay with her and Harry and daughters in their new two-bedroom apartment in Garfield, New Jersey. Samantha thinks she might be able to get Small an administrative position at her new job, a federally funded agency that offers oral sex to unemployed auto-industry executives. There is a moment of tension when Miranda wonders aloud whether Carrie’s role as director of the Save Prada movement is keeping her from being with Small when he needs her most, but the two dear friends kiss and make up when Charlotte announces some big news: Harry, who had got caught up big time in the real-estate euphoria of the ‘90s and lost tens of millions of dollars in a plan to build a ski resort in the Florida Keys, is eligible for Medicaid.
Scene Three: Glimmers of Hope
Small’s health-care provider agrees to cover Viagra; the new tax code allows Samantha to take a $1,200 deduction for her mouth; Charlotte and the family move to a one-bedroom apartment with a sunny “breakfast nook” in Lodi, New Jersey; Carrie leads the march for Dolce & Gabbana in Washington, D.C.; and Miranda catches herself before wondering aloud whether Small’s daily dose of 1000 milligrams of Viagra will affect his concentration when he takes the dishwasher-maintenance exams next month.
Scene Four: Setbacks
Although it is December, and a snowstorm is on the way, the girls decide to save a little money and, instead of meeting at Hong-Tsu’s, hold their weekly tête-à-tête on a bench in Union Square Park, just a stone’s throw from what used to be the Union Square Café, which is now Pat and Dominick’s Bowling City. There is much to talk about. After her initial joy at what the girls gigglingly referred to as Small’s sexual “surge,” Carrie was plunged into despair when Small, experiencing a four-day erection, had his member struck by a bicycle messenger while waiting for the light to change at Broadway and 86th Street. Charlotte immediately invites Carrie to stay with her and the family in their new studio apartment in Waldwick, New Jersey, until Small gets out of the hospital. Carrie bursts into tears. She is torn by guilt, unable to decide between caring for Small and rushing to the bedside of the ailing Manolo Blahnik, who had been struck down when the march to save Versace in Washington turned violent. Samantha, now administering oral sex to unemployed newspaper editors under an emergency provision in the stimulus package, votes for Blahnik. Miranda is about to protest when it begins to snow, and the girls, unable to find a federally funded taxi, take refuge in Pat and Dominick’s, in exchange for polishing the balls.
Scene Five: Opportunities
Carrie arrives at Hong-Tsu’s breathless with some big news: The new bipartisan health-care plan, which provides medical coverage to every American citizen, so long as the primary-care physician is based in Iraq, is going to pay for one-half of Small’s prosthetic penis. The girls put their heads together and try to think of a way to come up with the money to pay to complete the operation. Samantha, recalling the recent purchase of Chase Bank on eBay by a Mrs. Estelle Dobbs of Eagle Rock, New Mexico, offers to sell her body online. Charlotte suggests that Carrie save money by moving in with her and the family in their new tent in Clifton, New Jersey, overlooking the Passaic River. Miranda, who represented the city’s homeless people in the recent “shelter buyout” brouhaha, offers to sue the government. Carrie is so moved that she forgets to attend the Jean-Paul Gaultier Bailout rally in Park Slope.
Scene Six: You Can’t Always Get What You Want, But...
The girls collect enough money to pay for two-thirds of the second half of Small’s prosthetic penis, and they meet at Hong-Tsu’s in high spirits. There is more to celebrate than Small’s comeback, however. Congress has passed a sweeping Public Works Program and everyone has a job! Carrie is working both as editor-in-chief of the new Zagat’s Guide to New York City’s Best Soup-Kitchens, and helping to oversee the government’s efforts to convert the Big Three’s cars into energy-saving shoes. Charlotte is employed in a federally funded arts program that shows imprisoned real-estate brokers how to paint houses and yards instead of selling them; Samantha has been sent by the US to the Middle East to head up its Sex-for-Peace initiative; and Miranda and Steve are working in a government project to teach Signal Corps movements to Americans who can no longer afford cellphones. The evening ends with some fabulous news. Iris has just married Hong-Tsu, and the two of them are going to buy up everyone’s debt. Hugs and tears."
