Kim Zolciak gets married
Kim Zolciak has finally become a real housewife! The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star wed her babydaddy, NFL player Kroy Biermann, in an exclusive ceremony.
Before her nuptials, Kim tweeted, “Beautiful weather! Beautiful day! I’m walking on a cloud and I’m so grateful."
“Thank you everyone for your early congrats and best wishes,” Kroy tweeted. “@KimZolciak has made me the happiest man alive!!! 11.11.11.”
Kim worked to avoid comparison to Kim Kardashian, whose marriage to Kris Humphries lasted all of 72 days.
"I hate it that Kim’s going through what she’s going through," Kim Z. said of her fellow reality starlet during a chat with "The Bert Show." "It’s hard, I mean it is hard to be in the press and have your relationship dissected. It’s unfortunate, but Kim and Kroy are not Kim and Kris."

Oprah Winfrey meets Oscar
She was nominated for a Supporting Actress Academy Award for her work in The Color Purple, but Oprah Winfrey just recently walked away with a trophy, more than 15 years later.
The OWN owner became teary-eyed as she accepted the Oscar in recognition of her charitable work.
“All of us can make a difference through the life we lead,” she said. “We’re all here to help each other.”
Actor James Earl Jones, who has one of the most unique voices in cinematic history, also received an Oscar for his impressive body of work.
He was not in attendance, according to Reuters, but said he was “deeply honored, mighty grateful and just plan ‘gobsmacked.’”
