RHOA News: Is Nene Done With RHOA? Why am I Trending on Facebook? & More

RHOA Nene Cyn
Last night I was trying to check in on the crazy in the world via Google News. While I was there, feeding my anxiety, I happened to see a major story in the Entertainment section where the title suggested that Cynthia Bailey was leaving RHOA. As exhausted as I was, I went to see what the heck that was all about. Cynthia just bought a lake house. Cynthia is currently filming.  This post makes no sense. Who is the source of this story? Imagine my surprise when the source is….ME!  Wait whut? When did I say that?

Apparently, when I said that Cynthia was likely to relocate to LA or NYC sooner than you might think, someone interpreted it as me saying she was leaving the show. From there the story spread like wildfire. The good news is that the major sites all linked to me. The bad news is the story is based on someone reading more into the story than was there. So now I am trending on Facebook. For something that I never said.  This doesn’t really bother me, because at least they are linking to me.  I wish it was for my Nene news, but I’ll take it.

What bothers me is that my BIG NEWS which I did break exclusively, that Nene doesn’t have a contract with RHOA, was stolen by TMZ. They seemed to make things up surrounding my major points that just were not true and then say they got it from “a source”.  I went through a long period where TMZ was stealing my stuff and used to say “Read here first, watch for it on TMZ tomorrow.”  That is annoying.

After the story broke, people began asking Nene if she was coming back for RHOA this season and this was one response.

That sounds like a pretty definitive no to me.  However, as I said in my original post Nene will likely turn up like a bad penny before the season is over. Bravo doesn’t want to pay Nene any more money. So Nene is trying to get a lot less work time for the same amount of money.  Will she get it? Only time will tell.

Last night, Nene was on Cupcake Wars and Cynthia was her assistant. It looked to me like Cynthia was doing most of the cooking and was a great little cheerleader, while Nene got all the credit.  Whoever did the cooking, they did much better than I expected. I won’t spoil it for you in case you want to watch it  On Demand. Oh and the funny part? It was a Hello Kitty challenge.

Nene played for Broadway Cares and reminded us that she still can’t pronounce Broadway.  I’d never seen this show before and my overall thoughts on it are that it would be a really good show to watch while dropping acid. This show would have done well in the 80s.

If you missed Cupcake Wars, it will air again on Saturday at 1 p.m.

    I don’t usually watch Cupcake Wars, but as I was flipping through the channels I could’ve sworn I saw Nene in an apron! I went back, and sure enough there she was with Cynthia in tow. They both looked quite cute, but Cynthia’s hair hanging all down grossed me out a little. I have very long hair and put it in a bun to cook. I don’t know how a hair didn’t end up in any of their cupcakes. Shit was glued in tight!
    I too was impressed with their baking skills. Even my husband said “Did Nene used to work in a cake shop or something?” He was only half watching and didn’t notice until I pointed it out that Cynthia seemed to be doing all the work.

    I really hope that this is goodbye for Nene. She won’t be missed in the least. Bravo would be a fool to pay Nene a cent more.

    TT, I too thought your Nene news was a big scoop-and am sorry it didn’t get you the attribution you deserve.
    That being said, at least you got it on a story yesterday, small as that seems. I would have sworn ,though, that in the last month I have seen comments about TMZ stealing from you- acknowledging that it has happened in the past and people are both aware of it and think they’re scum.

    To me, that translates into people giving you more credit as a key source of original stories about the RH, especially of Atlanta. I think that’ terrific, knowing how hard you have struggled and how much you have been doing to find the right home and service. I know it is not the whole enchilada, but it feels like you are definitely getting much more of it!! Congrats!!!

    Add that to some of the last few weeks’ terrific commentary/dialogues- intelligent, funny, thoughtful and heartfelt- you have an awful lot to feel good about!

    I’m surprised Nene can afford to play hardball without any other major paycheck coming in. She must have very low expectations for this season. I have to say–that shot from Cupcake Wars is a very good picture of her!

    What does Nene mean when she writes “but to no fault of mine”? Who is she blaming?

  6. Cjbomb

    Wow- look how much she has changed.

      Not for the better. I guess seeing yourself on tv and hearing shitty comments turns people to serial surgery, it’s a damn shame

    Congrats TT on trending on Facebook I guess. Like they say in show biz, any press is good press. Maybe the links will get many more people reading here like all of us already intelligent and informed people do. If they come here maybe they too will be smart enough to read your original posts and get the correct story directly from you instead of someone’s invalid interpretation. Hopefully they will connect the dots and see that TMZ’s “source” is you and they took credit for your work. I hate it when people steal or take credit for stuff they didn’t do.

    I am waiting patiently for her nose to grow back again. It has a mind its own, I think.

      Give it a couple months. She’s already beginning to look more like her regular self in that photo with Cynthia.

      Whatever happened to the pepperoni-grease-orange hair color she was getting a couple of posts back? In the photo she posted of herself at the hairdressers to prove that she still has her own hair?

    At first I thought Cynthia was wearing joke glasses with fake eyebrows attached. Like Groucho Marx. She’s so pretty she can even wear those and look good.

    I’ve totally noticed the tmz thing too! It’s on your site and a bit later it’s there as an exclusive. I always found it strange and thought um no tmz tt already said that. Anyway, congrats on Facebook!

    Tamara. Thank you for all of the tea. I am not well and since my partner passed away two years ago my mood swings terrible.. Do not take me out of moderation ..I like 95 percent of you. Do not like retard comments on kids and you support some people who just suck ..anyways. kidney crap so I will just observe. Just wanted to apologize and to also be honest..thanks lady

  12. Tmz is low down and dirty. I’m not visiting there again now that I know, TT.

  13. Chase

    Well Canadian TV station Slice tweeted that Cynthia was leaving and since they air RHOA that was major fuel to the fire.

    Rats are smart enough to know when it’s time to abandon a sinking ship,

    My 12 year old daughter is a Cupcake Wars freak. Imagine my surprise when watching “celebrity” Cupcake Wars with her today to see Nene and Cynthia. I won’t spoil it either but I thought Nene was pretty well behaved and seemed to be having a good time. Frankly I was surprised either she or Cynthia can bake!

    Frankly, I’m tired of men treating us like property. For their use when they want life, love, fruit, cock, tail, support, to be their back bone then they belittle and degrade steal and disrespect our womanhood. The nerve of these bitches, a woman gave their simple ass life and straight men can be so vile to women. It’s cwazy=beyond crazy, no a male owned and operated sensationalist didn’t take credit for my True Journalism and Devout Sources, Diligent Research (yes you, TT are the latter).
    This egomaniacal scum has been vandalizing my car that I worked for no man did that for me, I worked my butt off and dummy is doing this repeatedly, I work , school, home, so why would he do this? He likes me and is intimidated? He’s cwazy? Minky I need a diagnosis Queen

    I’m not a Nene fan but I do enjoy watching her. She’s highly entertaining to me as opposed to Phaedra who I just fast forward all her scenes. I hope Nene does come back.

  19. Dukie

    Yippie TT! Thrilled u were trending !!! Well deserved after all your hard work you do ! Also funny about thirty mile zone is I read same story after reading it here saying same thing … Levin totally stole it from you ! As I read title my first thought was you…. Must be annoying doing all that research etc.. Kudos!

    I think season after season we all hate or can’t stand one cast member after another but I was really looking forward to Nene on the show. I was glad to see Sheree back in some capacity and was hoping for season 9 that Kim bierman would make some appearances with the two. Carlos king is pushing really hard for his bestie porsha to be the head of this show and they are trying to phase Nene out as they have trying to do for the past couple of seasons. Nene has been there from the beginning and egotistical or not, she’s earned that spot and shouldn’t be second in line to head giving thot porsha. It’s some shady stuff going on I tell ya.

  21. oh Sheila! you a good Judy

    i just want to thank you, T.T., for posting another airing time for Cupcake Wars! even tho i probably won’t watch the show, it was VERY thoughtful of you to take the extra trouble of including that info. also, it drives me bonky that TMZ has been stealing (taking) your stories, so i can imagine how grating that must be for you!

  22. T D

    Why? Because we like you, YOU TT!
