As one of the loud and opinionated stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak started the trend of Housewives songstresses when she released dance record "Tardy for the Party."
Born May 19, 1978, Zolciak is most well-known for chain-smoking, wearing a wig and dating a married man whom she dubs "Big Papa" on the hit Bravo reality show. Throughout the course of seasons 1 and 2, Zolciak was involved in a number of spats with frenemies, and costars, NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield. Throughout the first season of the show she tried her hand as a country singer, but later asked for help from castmate, former Xscape singer Kandi Burruss, to rework "Tardy for the Party" into a dance song. The single reached number 20 on iTunes Top 200.
As well as dating "Big Papa," who she calls her "sugar daddy" -- he is rumored to be real estate developer Lee Najjar who is married with two children -- Zolciak has been linked to billionaire Stefan Lemperle and admitted to dating female deejay Tracy Young who remixed her hit single.
The Bravo star has two daughters, Brielle and Ariana; Zolciak will give birth to her third child in May 2011, this time with Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Bierman.
