Like some of you, I was taken aback when I first saw this photo. And my initial reaction came with a bunch of questions: Is that really Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Why did she go topless? Is she holding her breast to prevent them from hitting the ground?
Then a few minutes later, I thought yes this is really Kim, the 30-year-old mother of two who amazingly looks like a 20 something model, thanks to the wonders of airbrush.
Most celebrities, even Tila Tequila, who have posed in support of gay marriage wore shirts but the Real Housewives of Atlanta
star obviously wanted to make a bold move with this silent protest against California's Proposition 8, which passed on Election Day, amending the state's constitution to ban same-sex marriage.
The "Tardy for the Party" singer, whose single was conveniently released Tuesday, tweeted
, "the noh8 campaign shoot was hot. and I am topless!!! Just to cause a stir to make people pay attention!"
Kim is the latest celebrity who has posed for the campaign. Other personalities include Pete and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Lisa Ling, Meghan McCain, and former Grey's Anatomy
actor Isaiah Washington.
While all the Kim-haters out there are probably revolting in disgust for seeing her pose naked, fans of the Real Housewives of Atlanta
star have warmly expressed their support for the reality TV star, even complimenting her looks and make-up, and conveying their gratitude for supporting the gay community.
At present, though, Kim is busy promoting her new single "Tardy for the Party" by throwing a special party, of course. It's set at 10pm tonight at Blakes on the Park in Midtown Atlanta where the club will be playing the said single and Kim gives out her new "Team Kim" shirts and take photos and sign autographs as well.
