By now you know that Jermaine Dupri couldn't make it to Pure Atlanta last night because he was in Dubai with Janet Jackson for the Grand Opening of the world's most expensive hotel, the $1.5 billion dollar Atlantis on the man-made Palm Jumeirah island. I know you've all seen pictures of it.
According to JustJared, more than 2000 celebrities from all over the world traveled to Dubai to indulge in the wasteful excess, including A-listers like Charlize Theron, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Kylie Minogue, Lily Allen, Michael Jordan, Denzel Washington, Mary-Kate Olsen and even Oprah. B-listers Wesley Snipes and Chris Tucker were also there.
International singing star Kylie was paid a whopping $4 million to perform for one hour. The Grand Opening party for the ultra luxurious Palm Jumeirah man-made island cost more than $32 million and the party guests were worth billions in personal wealth. I'm sure security for the party was ridiculous.
Yesterday I told you that the ratings for Bravo's 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' had doubled over two weeks. Well, much of the show's success has to do with the main protagonists Sheree Whitfield and Nene Leakes.
But Kim Zolciak, who was added to the cast at the last minute to attract white viewers to the show, is emerging as the most likable cast member of the scripted show.
TMZ.com even dedicated a post to Kim yesterday. All was good until Tuesday night's episode when Kim mentioned she was 29.
A chorus of Oh, Hell naw's rose up from message boards and blogs everywhere. It seemed no one believed Kim could be 29 years old.
So Style Razzi, a valued member of our community who normally writes about fashion trends on her blog, did a little investigative work and came up with a court document to prove Kim really is 29 as she claims.
She also learned that Kim is Hispanic -- not white, which changes the dynamics of the relationships on the show a little bit.
But Razzi didn't stop there. She also researched the average home prices of the gated community where Kim lives. A townhouse similar to Kim's, with an elevator(!) is listed at $499,900! So Kim really is ballin' out of control!
