Real Houswives of Atlanta “star” Kim Zolciak seems to have fulfilled her dreams of posing nude for Playboy recently in her NOH8 campaign photoshoot. Wearing only her signature wig and duct tape, Kim is photographed lovingly shielding her nipples from the hateful words of the opponents of California’s proposition 8.
“I feel so strongly about gay rights for several reasons, most importantly two of my family members are gay and my Uncle John was personally affected. He was denied rights that all heterosexual Americans are allowed. I believe that regardless of your gender you should be able to choose who your partner is, whether it be same-sex or not. I am all for people being happy. I posed topless to make a LOUD statement to help this wonderful cause. Thank you NOH8 Campaign!” – Kim Zolciak

Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates, Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burris, Kim Zolciak & unofficial 6th housewife, Dwight Eubanks recently took part in a photo campaign against hate. They were also joined by author J.L. King, V-103 radio personality Miss Sophia and Rasheeda. Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley of NoH8Campaign.com are Los Angeles based photographers and co-creators of the highly visible campaign. What began as a small grassroots movement in the wake of Proposition 8 passing in California, which effectively banned same-sex couples from legalizing their unions, has now turned into a full fledged movement.
The campaign started with portraits of every day Californians who supported marriage equality but soon expanded to Celebrities and supporters in general. The photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and the letters NOH8 painted on one cheek in protest.

Kim Zolciak stunned fans of Real Housewives of Atlanta recently when she accused fellow castmate NeNe Leakes of choking her during a taping of the show. Although her claims weren’t far fetched, most assumed the wig-wearing diva was just milking the press for the show. Kim hit up several magazines crying foul and claiming that she was going to press charges against her former friend.
