It’s domestic bliss and a domestic diss for two stars of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise.
In the first bundle of news, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak and husband Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons are expecting their second child, the couple reveals to Life & Style magazine.
The Bravo reality star is four months along in her pregnancy, which she says was “totally planned.” Unlike her surprise pregnancy last year…the couple has a nine-month old son, KJ. Zolciak, 33, also has two daughters, Brielle, 15, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage. She married Biermann in November 2011.
In not-so-happy “Housewives” headlines, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Dana Wilkey has called off her engagement.
“My fiancé and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Wilkey, 38, confirms to Life & Style.
Wilkey’s six-year relationship with businessman John Flynn produced a two-year-old son, John.
“We realized that we’ve become more friends than romantic partners,” Wilkey says. “It’s better for us to break up and concentrate on our son right now.”
A new addition to the Season 2 crew, Wilkey didn’t exactly impress viewers — or some of her fellow cast mates.
Coming across as more of a desperate housewife, Wilkey struggled to fit in with the ladies, kissing the pampered behinds of Kyle and Kim Richards, and bragging about her wealth (or was it her now ex-fiance’s?). She was ripped for her richly vulgar displays — such as her often-mocked statement, “Did you know?…$25,000” sunglasses, wearing Valentino to game night and showing off a ridiculous million-dollar diamond … lollipop holder.
Somewhere, bullied Housewife Brandi Glanville is giggling over the irony of Wilkey’s misfortune… In an early episode this season, Glanville had made an off-the-cuff comment about Wilkey’s mysterious fiance — who was never seen on the show — joking that he traveled so much because he had different girls in different cities. Wilkey, clearly sensitive about the subject, called out Glanville in front of the other wives, which was a catalyst for the “mean girl” treatment of Brandi for the rest of the season.
