I'm guessing Bravo network execs got at RHOA cast member Kim Zolciak for denying her lesbun relationship with DJ Tracy Young -- and thus ruining the only plot angle she has to draw in viewers.
Zolciak recently sat down with Life & Style magazine to dicuss her
PR stunt relationship:
L&S: Was there chemistry the first time you and Tracy met?
Kim: Well, we were both going through heartbreak at the time. I had split up with Big Poppa, and she had just ended a relationship she had been in for three years. The first night we met, we just connected on a different level. We ended up talking for two hours. After that, we started working in the studio together, remixing “Tardy for the Party.” We gradually became closer.
L&S: Can you pinpoint the moment when things became romantic?
Kim: There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.
I spoke with a Bravo producer last night who told me that the production company has been in Atlanta for at least a month now waiting to start filming. The producers have been cooling their heels waiting for the green light to proceed with the coonery. A source said the shooting schedule has been pushed back at least three times.
The reason is: a couple of the cast members are still refusing to sign on for the new season because they're holding out for more cash. The two hold outs know what the other cast members have already agreed to -- and they want equal pay for equal coonery.
One of the hold outs said to a friend: "Why should Kandi Burrus make more than me and I've been on the show longer?"
The two hold outs realize that they risk being kicked off the show. But thats OK because it's written into their contracts that they must be paid for the entire upcoming season even if they are let go.
A photo shoot is scheduled for next week for the cast members, and afterwards filming of the new season is supposed to commence. But as I've said, the shoot start time has been pushed back a few times already.
