You’re Fired: No More Running With The RHONJ Big Boys For Kim D!

Posted on Jul 12 2014 - 2:58pm by Reality LuLu

Kim DePaola RHONJ

If you were hoping to see Kim D (Kim DePaola) on season six of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” you will be out of luck (or feeling very thankful).

DePaola claims that she has “moved on” from the show. She’s off playing with the big boys now. Owner of the stores Posche and organizer of the infamous Posche fashion shows where something ALWAYS goes awry, she is in now in the process of shopping around for a book she wrote based on a true story and hoping to bring it to television. She also says that the book is not based on her life (Hmmm who could it be about).

Kim D. has her own website to sell her wares. This was taken from her “About” section: 

“Kim DePaola is a widely known designer and fashion stylist across Northern New Jersey, and is the proud owner of Posche Boutique in Wayne. Also known as Kim D, Kim is a regular on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, on which she affectionately styles the ladies of the Garden State with keen sense of fashion and an even keener knack for her own “no bullish*t drama” much of which she generously lends to the show. With an eye for looking good and a mouth for looking out, Kim D is sure to crack you up with her weekly blog.”

An eye for looking good? Does this woman even own a mirror?

DePaola has often been the behind the scenes crap-stirrer. She has never hosted a fashion show where there hasn’t been any type of drama. She allegedly worked with Teresa to set-up Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. Teresa and Kim just happened to run into a man who owned a ‘gentlemen’s club’ where Melissa worked for him. This man then happened to stop at the table where all the women were sitting asking Melissa if she remembered him. Cue the camera to Kim who was watching with an evil smile on her face.

At the opening of Posche 2 there was a huge brawl involving all of the men and Johnny “Johnny The Greek” Karagiorgis, which resulted in lawsuits and Twitter wars. In this particular event, Kim was asked directly if Johnny would be at the event and she said “No.”

There are many other instances in which Kim D has been involved. As Caroline Manzo said:

“The common denominator is always Kim D. For years and years and years, her hands have been dirty.”

In a recent interview with the Star-Ledger Kim commented about no longer appearing on the show:

“I’m kind of happy and relieved to be off. Real Housewives was merely a stepping stone. No one can bring drama like a Posche fashion show. I think it’s going to be a different kind of drama. I’ve moved on.”

Do you believe that Kim D. has “moved on”?

About the Author

I began writing about people that put themselves on Reality Television 3 years ago after my son was in a car accident. I needed something to do when I became his primary caregiver. I started "Reality TV Morons" Facebook on where I gathered over 2000 followers. I've done interviews with people like Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Catherine Ommanney, Peggy Tannous and Rob Shuter. I am a Medical Assistant recently taking a leave from my job after losing my mother 2 months ago & 21-year old nephew 3 weeks ago. I'm taking time to reevaluate where I want to be and am looking forward to once again writing about Reality Television especially any of the Real Housewives Franchises.

    “Does the woman even own a mirror?” LOL!!!! I won’t miss her, but her fashion shows were always fun! HA! I’m sure that Melissa is heartbroken……NOT! 😮

  • Aw, this is unfortunate! Who doesn’t like an old porno looking whore from 80’s who sniffs lines??

    • twifan2

      She could be a cartoon double for Mr. Burns!
      If Mr. Burns wants her, that is.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I still love the Faux Milania G’s description, “She looks like a botoxed hyena.”

  • Norrth

    HA! Sure she’s happy to be off, SURE! I’m only disgusted it took Bravo THIS long!

  • Michael

    Without her fashion events held by her Posche
    Boutiques, where are the ladies going to have their knockdown drag-out
    fights? I’m sure Bravo has been banned from filming at most restaurants
    and venues in the area by now.

  • TartLemon

    No, I don’t believe she has moved on. If she had, KimD would not be making the references to the show in interviews and site. KimD acts like she was a regular cast member. Was she even paid?

  • WestCoastFeed

    We need Doxxie on this thread. She had some wonderful gossip about Kim D. I’m going to get it all scrambled, but I’ll try. Kim D was banned from attending her long time boy friend’s funeral by his family. I think because she enabled his alcoholism. Something about her bringing him a big bottle of champagne to celebrate his release from rehab. Damn, I hope I have that right. Sorry, Kim D, if it is all wrong and it isn’t true.

    • TartLemon

      When/how did boyfriend die? Was he the ‘big boy’ KimD referred to?

      • WestCoastFeed

        It was just about a year ago, I think. And I think it was an alcohol related death. I actually saw him in an episode from either season 1 or 2 when Bravo just reran them, I think his name was Mike. He was seated with Kim D at a restaurant with some other cast members and talking about what a pig Danielle is. He was obviously drunk himself. And yes, I think he was one of the big boys that Kim ran with.

        • TartLemon

          Thanks WCF. So, KimD has Family problems too.


  • Marsbars09

    I wonder if Kim was asked to leave in order to help change the dynamic of the show.

  • TartLemon

    Teresa’s been bringing some serious negative attention to business as usual on the East Coast. So has Juicy. IMO, the FEDS are doing intense forensic accounting in relation to the drivers license thing. Getting caught driving with a suspended license is one thing; it would have caused trouble. The fraudulent one was for business purposes. He needed ID for something to do with financial institutions.

    Something’s up with the continued postponements.

    IMO only.

  • italiano bambino

    Kim D famous for her fashion #cameltoe

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yippeee!! My favorite, The triple camel toe. Thank you. bambino.

      • nan/4

        “triple camel toe”……hahahahaha!!!!!!!

    • Birdie11

      A camel toe for every season. I’ll bet Kim D might steal that one!

      • nan/4

        That’s so funny Birdie!! A new slogan!!! LOL!!!

        Hope all is well! 🙂

    • Zoe D.

      Geez,…does she do that on purpose? How does one fail at the same outfit 3 times? lol Someone please give her a mirror..or something to cover that thingy…o_O

      • WestCoastFeed

        She has said that she thinks camel toes are sexy.

        • nan/4

          No way! She didn’t actually say that, did she WCF? 😮

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, she did, I don’t know if she meant it,

          • nan/4

            Who says that, even as a joke? She’s….ewww. Just eww. :-/

        • Ewwwww!!!!

    • Awww, shucks…there needed to be a bright red flashing WARNING label above your post that reads “Caution…Scroll down at your own risk.” DAMN!!!!!!

    • equinox2009

      That’s disgusting!

  • LoLo

    Has anyone bought anything from her store? I went to the website & you can buy $25 Posche tank tops? Any takers? No thank you. Then there are some tacky cuffs designed by Kim. I don’t care for the clothing & probably more so because it’s in her store. The girl behaves like a 15 yr old wanna be gang member.

  • Birdie11

    Bummer. She added quite a nice touch of raspy whore to the mix. What will we do without those ratty extensions flinging everywhere? Bravo takes all the fun ones out…and leaves us with Dina???

    • WestCoastFeed

      There’s a gaggle of Danielle fans on twitter campaigning for the return of Danielle. Personally I’d rather have Kim G return. I think she is a hoot.

      • Birdie11

        Me too…she is a riot. They are removing all the color and leaving us with a lot of beige. I cannot believe we have to look at those icky looking pets of Dina’s. Yuck.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Doc is expecting the twins to be fun to watch. I don’t quite see what it is that she is spotting in them. Let’s see what they bring tomorrow night.

          • Birdie11

            I hope so…aren’t they the really loud shrieky ones?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, that’s too much like Tre for my taste.

        • Au contraire mon frere…the Napolitano twins are the right dash of Jerzeey trash we’re craving. They are briiiiiing it!

    • Bwahahaha!! Awww…..your my mutha from anotha mista, chile!

  • Zoe D.

    Hello everyone…happy weekend!

    Good…I’m glad she’s gone…never liked the hag! Oh, and those pictures of Teresa’s camel toe will give me nightmares for a few days…:| Didn’t anyone tell her about “Cuccinis”? Gross! lol

    • nan/4


    • Hi hon….happy Saturday to you too! 🙂

      Ahahahaha!!! tell us how you really feel. LMAO!

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    Rumor has it that her old BF set her up in business. He them dumped her after he got sick. He eventually died.

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    I really like the “Fish Lips” depiction of Kim D.
    It suits her.
