Kim Zolciak Moves Into Big Poppa's Condo


So, Kim Zolciak has moved from her "dream home," which turns out was rented and back into the townhome that Big Poppa bought for her. I don't understand why Kim Zolciak and her NFL playing husband can't afford to buy a house. She is on Real Housewives and has her own show. She gets paid for appearances and he makes a very decent living too. So, why are they renting? Why do they need to live in free housing? Where does all the money go? How much do her wigs cost? Yes, I understand she paid for the redecoration of the house they lived in but why would you pay to redecorate a rental? Instead of buying that $400K bracelet why not buy a house for that or use that as a down payment? When Kim Zolciak is not a household name and her husband is retired and she is having to turn tricks again to make money, she is going to remember all the money she squandered.

Why does anyone give a rat's ass about Kim Zolciak? Has she contributed something worthwhile to society that I've missed?

It's pretty old news that they were renting b/c they didn't know if he was going to be picked up by the Falcons and it didn't make sense to purchase a home and then possibly have to move to a completely different state. Now though it doesn't make sense not to purchase a house since he signed a new contract.

Plenty of people decorate their rentals especially if they have a willing landlord/lady whether it's a tiny one bedroom or a Beverly Hills mansion. This shouldn't be news or new to you 'Enty.'

Wasn't she in the process of building a new home and until then was renting?
My husband would rather live in a box then live in a home my ex bought me.

So, Kroy doesn't feel weird living in the house bought by his wife's (former?) sugardaddy?

Oooooh, I loved last night's wedding episode. She sure got lucky with Kroy, but damn her Mama is a piece of work. I'm sure having her Mom escorted out was all for the cameras, but it was still funny as hell.

Remember the show where she was getting all her stuff from storage and it was top-of-the-line furniture that she wasn't even using? Splains a lot

NomNom83 said...

I am still confused how she snagged Kroy in the first place. He just seems so low-key, modest and mature. I guess opposites attract, though, right?

Also, the lady she "paid" to redecorate was actually the woman who owns the house they rented.

They fought because the lady/her husband jacked up the price of the house and Kim and Kroy backed out of the deal--then the landlords had issues with the wedding/filming in the house. Hence, they evicted them.

She's pregnant again and she has some issues with flying/travelling so I don't think she makes many appearances like Nene Leakes but she has to have made out well with the special spin off series they did about the wedding.

From watching the show, I don't get the impression that Kim has a lot of long-term friends--she seems to have someone --often paid--she gets very close to --then things blow up and she finds a new friend. I think the landlady was like that --a friend on the way to getting to be on TV and famous--then things didn't work out and poof.

That townhouse was an ok place--not as fancy but they'll save money to put toward a big house --of course she probably had to put things back into storage again so that costs something, lol.

So that's Big Poppa?? He's a hottie! Big Poppa - call me!! I have real hair and mad skilz........

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

I thought she used to be a nurse?

He keeps calling her an ex-hooker.

auntliddy said...

Who in the world is she??!!

califblondy said...

Hey, that's right, she was a nurse.

I didn't know Big P was ever identified.

Mango said...

Is that Big Poppa or her landlord?

Kroy seems nice but utterly whipped. He'll live where Kim tells him to live, thank you very much.

Get a Life said...

I say good for her for living in the paid condo. Probably the first smart move by a reality star. Save the money for when your show dies.

luckylass said...

I don't keep up with this stuff. Who exactly is Big Poppa? Was he ever revealed on the actual show?

Jolene Jolene said...

I think is big papa. If you google there are some people who did some sleuthing and he was identified a while back. Some businessman or real estate honcho or something.

YES, she did luck out with Kroy. I came across it last night and ended up watching the whole thing. I have to say when Kroy gave her daughters those rings, I totally teared up. It was so, so sweet.

As far as living in big papa's condo, I don't know...so many guys are so territorial with their women and don't want anything to do with past lovers/boyfriends/etc., and some guys just prefer to leave the past in the past. He probably just doesn't care. I personally think it's a sign of security in their relationship. Everyone has a past...

car54 said...

She tweeted that they own TWO places in Atlanta, so I don't know if maybe Kroy also had a place before they married.

Big Poppa was identified by tabloids and blogs. His kids were on an episode of Cribs on MTV and the showed him briefly.

Sherry said...

Yeah and remember when she gave Kroy that Porsche or Ferrari or something?

Barton Fink said...

I'm all for renting, but she oughtn't be fronting the way she does. The ladies on that show all seem to have real estate problems. Sheree's empty lot, for instance. Marla was living in a vagina showroom, too, instead of a house.

Unknown said...

So I happen to know more about this than the regular person..Although the wedding was partially paid for by Bravo it still cost them a lot out of pocket. Kroy got 3 mill to sign, after taxes 2 mill. Add up what he bought her and he spent most of his contract already. Kim...everything she owns was bought with Poppa's money. All that versace plates and such...all Poppa. Even her escalade. Kim ignores it all. She thinks the money will keep flowing in, Kroy is clueless..before Kim he never spent money like that, now he just signes checks trying to live up to her former suger daddy and he just does not have that kind of income...So now all they have is housewives..and that dog is on it's last leg with her.

Unknown said...

Oh the Porsche is a lease with a generous discount for the dealer name flashed on tv (via plates) and a TV star(?) driving it. Kim was counting on the condo selling but she was asking a lot more than market and it never sold. Kim just lies about her money issues, she told Andy Cohen the house was in escrow on the reunion show, then she changed her story that they jacked the price..that the owners were trying to gouge her because of who she was. Uhhh. The owner is an NFL player...who makes more than Kroy. I give the marriage to Kroy a year maybe.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

My boo called this like a week or two ago and I said no way (I really thought Kroy had more brains then buns but I was Wrong. Mark that for history......that I was wrong and my boo was right).

Anyway, I told him last night that my favorite blog concurred what he already said. Suffice to say, he's still on that "I won" cloud.

What can I say, I am rather naive. I really thought kroy had investments and that was why he was letting her piss through the money.

CincyNat said...

What exactly has Kim had done? She looks sooo different and it ain't just the new wigs. I heard that whole bracelet gift was faked. (Not really worth that much and actually loaned not gifted.) She and her mother deserve each other. They're both nuts. Wait till she turns on Kroy.

Sis Cesspool said...

So is he a fag on the DL? Certainly looks it.....

Lelaina Pierce said...

@CincyNat - I was wondering the same thing. When they do flashbacks from previous seasons, she looks completely different.

@Barton Fink - LMAO at "vagina showroom." I just spit my coffee out.

I've already discussed how quickly Kim is going through her/Kroy's money, so I'll just add, did anyone notice that she has Louis Vuitton in "her" house? Gag.

Lelaina Pierce said...

^The word wallpaper is missing up there. She has Louis Vuitton wallpaper in her house.
