Why is Tuesday always Tea Day on Tamara Tattles? I tend to get so many scoops on Tuesdays when all I really want to do is watch The Blacklist. But y’all need to clear your schedule because I will have two or maybe three new steaming hot posts today!
First, my behind the scene sources are giving a few more clues about what was going on backstage while Andy and the girls were filming. I’m going to try and piece it together for you. I contacted my source because I was pretty skeeved out by Apollo’s behavior and actions. I had not used any of my chits (remember, I try not to pester the sources and get in and out with all the tea I can without interrogating them to death). I wanted to know what the dynamics were backstage with Phaedra and Apollo. I also wanted to know if he actually brought that jacket. LOL. Sorry. I know I ask about weird things.
So the jacket was Apollo’s and he was not forced to wear it like an underdressed male at a five-star restaurant. Which to me makes it even more odd. But before you laugh at me for wasting a question on the jacket and his bizarre clothing choice, my source made an interesting comment about Apollo’s behavior. I’m going to type the tidbits I got in black and my comments will be in purple from now on.
Apollo and Phaedra arrived in separate vehicles.
Because, I keep telling you these two spilt when Phaedra moved into that house. The backpack on the show was the major clue we had during the season. What grown man with no legal employment carries a backpack with him every time he leaves the house? One who lives someone else, that’s who. Remember him saying he had mail, “from the old place?” That’s where he lives. He visits the boys, takes them to lunch, with um, a friend etc.
When Apollo arrived, he brought a small posse. Apollo seemed…I think the word was erratic…or hyper. Apollo was hanging with his boys a lot behind the scenes to the exclusion of others as they filmed and got touchups etc. The group sort of roamed around behind the set and upstairs where the dressing rooms were, according to my source.
I suppose his urban chic attire was meant more to impress them than the cameras. It seems odd to me that he was allowed to bring a posse, I mean friends. Even the housewives are not allowed to bring in people other than their stylists and makeup people as I have understood it. Maybe he said their were his stylists. He does seem to live in a delusional world where he has a “brand” and “fans.” So anyway, Apollo had a glam squad or something.
After the physical attack on Kenya by Porsha, the police were called and an officer came to make a report. After some time filming resumed without Porsha. Several breaks were taken. Things were tense. Apollo was wandering around with his boys, the other husbands were there, the ladies returned to their dressing rooms. When Kenya and Lawrence arrived in her dressing room for a break in filming and more make-up spackling, and hair styling several items were missing. Lawrence’s bag was stolen with his wallet. Kenya’s carry-on luggage with her purse and laptop inside was also gone. Nothing was missing from any of the other rooms. The police were called again and the same officer responded that took the incident report on Porsha.
The source says that Kenya’s laptop was found by police. Some guy was trying to sell the laptop on the street and he had Lawrence’s ID.
So that is two people who got arrested for crimes against Kenya at the reunion. WOW. RHOA is turning into a ratchet mess. This means that by the time the husbands came out Kenya had already been assaulted by one person and robbed by another on the same day! By that point I would have probably walked off the set when Phaedra let loose the vile read that she had been rehearsing all week.
I rewatched part of the reunion just now, with this new information in mind. Why the hell is Apollo talking about Kenya’s credit? I thought it was a weird comment from an accused identity thief in the first place. Was he out tryna use Kenya’s card to buy those fugly shoes? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm. I could not have just sat there like Kenya did. I have to give her props for that. Get it? Props? I crack myself up. All it would have taken for me was the wrong hormonal surge to occur at the right moment and the entire set would have been a bloodbath. I would have probably started with Carlos King for coddling the person who attacked me and worked my way through the whole lot of them with my scepter.
But see, I know myself so I keep my fat ass and my propensity for murderous rages right here on this couch, and use my words.
EDITED: I forgot to say Apollo and them were the last to leave, LONG after Phaedra and the rest of the housewives got out of there. He just kept on hanging out according to my source. When I asked what he was doing there so late at night the source said he was just hanging out. Weird.
