Kim Zolciak is dating a woman, DJ Tracy Young

Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kim Zolciak is dating a woman, which is a surprise because her mysterious relationship with an anonymous man identified as “Big Poppa” was a large part of her storyline. But if she returns to the show, being a new lesbian or bisexual woman might be part of her storyline now.

Kim and celebrity DJ Tracy Young appeared together “at the Blacks’ Annual Gala in Miami Beach on Saturday,” Us Weekly reports, saying they’ve been together for three months. An anonymous source says “Tracy broke up with her longtime girlfriend to be with Kim. Since they’ve been together, Tracy lost a lot of weight and got really skinny for Kim. They seem to be beyond happy with each other.”

E!’s Marc Malkin reports cites other anonymous sources and reports that “Kim hopes her coming out is part of the next season of Bravo’s hit reality show,” but that “some Bravo executives feel Kim decided to ‘become gay’ because having a juicy storyline could help her in negotiations.”
