Yes, Kim Zolciak Is Dating a Lady. Just Don’t Call Her a Lesbian (Or Even Bisexual)

Kim Zolciak, the draggiest drag queen of all of Atlanta’s Real Housewives, says she is in fact dating DJ Tracy Young, a lady. Predictably, both the New York Post and Fox News brand Zolciak’s acknowledgment of her lesbian relationship as an “admission.” Zolciak’s story appears in the new issue of Life & Style, which of course didn’t pay for the interview.

Says Zolciak: “I don’t believe love has a gender. I have a ton of girlfriends who have been with girls, and I could never comprehend that before. Now I can. But I don’t want to define gay, bisexual or straight. I just think it’s too much for me — a woman doesn’t define me, nor does a man. I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me. … [She and Young] 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. There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.”

Wishing you only the best, ladies. Though if you’re shaking up at Young’s Los Angeles home, it hurts us to know you’d fly to Atlanta just for the show. Such inauthenticity cannot be tolerated in reality television.
