I guess being publicly called a “pathological liar” by her father didn’t sit well with former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Kim Zolciak because according to TMZ, is petitioning for a gag order in an effort to keep her parents from doing anymore damage to her image by blabbering to the media about her personal business.
It seems that the parentals are in the process of planning and writing a very detailed tell-all book about the reality star. But catch this, the book deal is said to be worth $50,000 dollars. Kim filed an emergency motion last week with Georgia courts requesting that a judge prohibit her parents from publicly discussing the visitation dispute in which Kim is trying to keep her parents from seeing her children.
She also claimed that her parents have been dragging her name through the mud, telling her business to several media outlets and telling “vicious lies”. She also expressed that their “smear tactics” are are impacting her children in a negative way. So far a judge has yet to rule on Kim’s request.
If you recall, a couple of weeks ago when news broke of the visitation dispute between Kim and her parents, Kim’s dad was the mouthpiece, stating that he would not let Kim “make a mockery” of his wife and their family. “We are completely humiliated by all the lies she has put in the media,” he shared with TMZ.
Hopefully the Zolciak family will get it together soon considering the fact that there are children involved who are feeling as if they should choose sides in the dispute. Kim’s daughters, Ariana and Brielle have both submitted sworn affidavits to the court stating that they do not want to be forced to spend time with their grandparents.
“We both love our grandparents, but due to their actions at the wedding of [Kim and Kroy] … we have grown apart… We do not live a crazy or abnormal life. We are not forced to appear on television with our mother.”
The girls even claimed that their grandmother is nothing but a “disrespectful old lady.” Mind you, the kids are 11 and 15. Unfortunately, it seems that reality television is ruining yet another family. Neither side looks as if they’re preparing to take the high road.
What do you think of the drama between Kim and her parents?
