It’s a busy and super cold day here in the offices of Tamara Tattles. With the time change and the good sleeping weather I was hoping that the four new recaps from last night would hold you guys over while I relaxed. Boy was I wrong. So let’s get on with what will be a very long, but hopefully interesting blog. Let’s start back in September of 2016 when I first broke the news that the RHOA trip would be in Maui. I had multiple really good sources for this trip. When Kandi and Todd where thrown off the plane (which was not mentioned on the show), I spoke to someone who was actually on the plane. No sooner did they check into the Four Seasons, I had multiple sources sending me photos and production information.
One of those sources was in a room near Bob Whitfield who reported that he was staying in the room with a blonde woman who was decidedly not Sheree. I waited until mid-November to cover this story since the only real information at that point was that Bob and Sheree’s storyline about reconciliation was fake. Information I had shared with you all since before filming began. Not particularly new information. At least not until I received information from another source that Bob and Sheree had a huge fight and that Bob was also fighting with production over how the fight would be edited. Here is what I said on November 15th in an exclusive post with a title asking if Bob was over pretending to play the role of Sheree’s suitor.
I asked a source about the mystery woman in Bob’s room and either they didn’t know or they weren’t telling. I found out that her name is Katy and she is a longtime friend of Bob’s. My initial source claims that they seemed like more than friends. That source said that she had her own key and was staying in the room with Bob. She said they went for walks on the beach and were seen at breakfast together. I did a bit more investigating and discovered that Katy either was or is married and has been friends with Bob for quite a while. Based on what I have seen of Bob on TV, and heard in the streets, Bob is a really fun person to hang out with. He has a lot of female friends that are just that. Katy has the resources and the schedule availability to fly to Maui and hang out with her friend who scored a nice room at the Four Seasons. They might have had a suite. I have no reason to assume that Katy is not exactly what her social media states. She is good friends with Bob. Nothing to see here. It was also interesting to note that in 2013, when Tisha stated that her last name was Whitfield, Bob completed his Stanford degree. Both Katy and Tisha were at Bob’s graduation. So was Katy’s husband. I shelved this post for a second, or possibly third time as a non-story.
I had asked a source somewhat familiar with both Bob and Katy for information on Katy. That source said Katy was just a friend Bob had known forever and she was married. In fact she and her husband had been at Bob’s graduation. That source also stated that last they knew Tisha (who has publicly claimed to be married to Bob in the past) was still in the picture. So that source didn’t think there was anything going on with Bob and Katy despite the suspicions of my eye-witness at the Four Seasons who just as adamantly claimed that Bob and Katy were romantic in public at the hotel. Again, the only reason I cared one way or another is because it would probably piss Sheree off if Bob brought a woman with him on the trip he was on because of her. Not because Sheree is interested in Bob, but because it would blow up her storyline if some of the other housewives, or production, or in this case random fans of the show became aware.
Shortly after that, Katy began to email me. Each email said something like this…
I hope the Thanksgiving holiday left you well. I’m not experienced with bloggers, but it seems to me that people tell you things (your sources) but sometimes they’re not correct…but most time they are, so you go with it? I’m sure you have great resources, but I’m pretty sure they don’t know me, or Bob like I know him (we’ve been friends for many many years) because they have very incorrect information on the both of us.
If you would like the truth, then I would be happy to share with you what I can.
Well this is great news. Now I have the story straight from the horse’s mouth, right? So I reply…
Please email me with whatever it is you would like “corrected.” As you noticed, I pointed out only what others observed at the hotel. I’d love to include your thoughts.
I will be unavailable from Tuesday until… sometime later in week. And am working only on limted time at the moment as it is a holiday weekend.
At this point Katy insisted on talking by phone. I don’t do phone. As y’all know I am the last human on earth with no cell phone. I’ve had bad experiences, like with Sheree Whitfield, occur from talking on the phone. Katy seems to be quite a good typist. I am sure she can collect her thoughts into an email and I’d be happy to include them in a post. She was not willing to do that.
So today I find and email from her that I will get to soon. It was a link to her Instagram where I read this for the first time today.
On November 22nd, Katy wrote on Instagram:
A blogger just wrote about me named Tamara Tattles who knows NOTHING about me, or my friends, and family pictured with me here. It was referred to in a blog about Bob and Sheree in Maui with The Real Housewives of Atlanta. @therealhousewivesofatlanta I also noticed a company called,”Straight from the A” posted this pic online with their logo over it and this is my picture taken with my cellphone. I don’t mind people using a picture WITH permission; and if you’re going to post “facts” about me on the internet please check your sources because your blog has many errors about me and Bob in it. Please check your info before posting to the world. 1. I am not married. 2. The white gentleman in the picture is my cousin and friend of Bob 3.Bob isn’t married – we are both single….etc…etc… #tamaratattles #rhoa #therealhousewivesofatlanta #realhousewivesofatlanta
Fun Fact: In defense of SFTA (not that she needs it) but Instagram photos are considered public domain. And Katy is well aware of SFTA and who runs that site being as she is so close to Bob.
So apparently, the big news is that neither of them are married so they were not cheating on anyone. This proves my on-site eye witnesses were telling the truth that Bob and Katy were acting like they were in a relationship. So now we have cleared that up. A brief look at her recent Instagram shows her and Bob traveling somewhere and her giving a shoutout to someone they met “from Katy and Bob.” So they are a couple, or at least that is the appearance she is giving. I stand corrected. Sort of. I never said she was married while she was in Maui, I said that my source stated she was married and may or may not be married now. The same way I said that Tisha has claimed to be married to Bob publicly. Moving on.
Today’s correspondence from Katy is something she posted on Instagram last night. It was posted as a photo so I have attempted to retype it here as best I can because it is screaming for MY PURPLE PEN.
Bravo and the writers of, “the real housewives of Atlanta” should end the show after this season because the show has run its course! I am horrified to have watched tonight’s episode, “Maui Mayhem” and witness the biggest lies and framing of my longtime friend, Bob Whitfield!
Are the viewers gullible enough to believe what the writers write?
Um, yes, yes they are. This show does not exactly draw the Masterpiece Theatre crowd. That is why I have spent the past five years or so exposing the storylines of this show for the people on the Internet with enough critical thinking skills to follow my exposé.
There are writers – the cast in many scenes are told what the storyline is and told what to do and say!
There are writers, yes. Storylines are determined to some degree before filming begins. Storylines like Bob and Sheree’s bullshit storyline. I have mentioned here repeatedly that Bob has no interest in Sheree and Sheree has no interest in Bob. Both have other relationships that are their reality. For financial reasons, and in an attempt to get more air time for their kids, and for Bob to get more TV time that he loves so very much, they cooked this plan up together, willingly, as Sheree’s storyline. Because if they did not, she has no storyline other than the also fake Chateau Sheree story.
But the writers do not write lines. The do not tell them what to say in scenes. They tell them the point of the scenes and how it affects the storyline. They tell them where they need the conversation go, in as much as what the subject of filming is. They do not say, “Hey Bob, talk about abusing Sheree and give lots of examples of how you hoped she would die in a car accident and how you wish you would have choked her to death.” They cannot make the people they are filming say anything they don’t want to say.
Editing can be magical; making someone appear to say something they actually did not say!
Again, this is partially true. We talk on this site often about “Frankenbites” This is when the editors take words that someone has said in a variety of situations and piece the words together in ways the speaker never intended to make it look like they said something they did not. Frankenbites are easy for those of us at this site to identify. The editors are far less than magical in their editing. Also, in order to say things like “unhooking her seat belt and slamming on the brakes so she would fly through the windshield” Bob would have had to have said all of those words in another context. Also when a person is having words put in their mouths by the editing team, you don’t see their lips moving. Bob said what he said.
Why does it show the person sometimes looking a little different in the confessionals? Because the confessional scenes are shot at different times and production has the person wear the same outfit, the same hair, etc so they have more editing ammunition!
Again, it this is partially correct. We all know that confessionals happen every few weeks during filming and in post production. In fact, Porsha did a new confessional recently, weeks after cast filming ended. However, they do not wear the same outfit and hair in confessions. They are a totally different look. Have you ever watched the show? They do have them reshoot scenes at the end in the same outfits and hair on occasion to get sound bites that fit the narrative that the show takes on over the filming season. They do film things out of order. They are making a TV show. And yes the reason for some of the confessionals is to get them to say very specific things. They are coached to say things in confessional and yes, some of those things are used to Frankenbite words into someone’s mouth on scenes that were already filmed. That did not happen with Bob in the van. How do I know? Because we saw his face while he was saying those things.
On tonight’s episode, Bob is being used to fit into RHOA and BRAVO’s STORYLINE FOR SHEREE!!! Pay attention to the word “storyline” yes it’s a storyyyyyyyyy She needs this story to justify the big bucks that Bravo paid her to come back this season!
Giggles at big bucks. But yes, Katy, we know about storylines. See above. See previous five years of posts on this site.
These lies hurt Bob, they hurt their children, and they hurt the people like me who know the truth and know that reality TV is not reality! The network gets rich fooling the audience!
That’s sad and unfortunate and the blame lies entirely on Bob. He agreed to play with the snake, Sheree, and the snake bit him.
For the record, I was also in Maui when this episode was filmed. I spent a couple of days visiting Bob at the Four Seasons when I was there… AND we hung out in public, and also with other cast members and production so I know that what I heard in Hawaii. What I saw on the Maui episode a few hours ago was completely different. It is obvious that this show’s writers shouldn’t be able to sleep at night because the make things up!
Yes, you were in Maui. No, you were not in the car where Bob said what he said. My sources were very clear that Bob and Sheree got in a big fight that was filmed and that Bob AT THAT TIME was pissed off at his edit. He tried to keep what he said from airing. Since you are so close to Bob, you know this to be true.
A blogger (That would be Tamara Tattles, oh hey!) that knew I was there in Maui with Bob while filming thought they would include that information to stir stuff up –
If by “stir stuff up” you mean verify that Bob had a female roommate that was not Sheree and wonder if that had anything to do with Sheree and Bob fighting, then yes, I stirred things up.
which makes total sense when Bob and Sheree are supposedly trying to get back together BUT then they couldn’t deviate.
But then who couldn’t deviate? If you mean me, I’ve laughed at this fake storyline since dot one.
Sheree was testing Bob by inviting him on the trip, REALLY?? Sheree invited Bob on the trip to keep herself on the show with her bogus storyline. Bottom line- the show lies-
The show clearly distorts a lot of things. But Sheree Whitfield lies every time she opens her mouth. As a woman, I never discredit anyone who claims abuse, especially when a man is sitting right there going along with the story. I will say that this claim, if true, would be the only true thing Sheree has ever said in her life, and let you take that as you will.
and Bob Whitfield is a good person.
Bob has always seemed like a fun person to hang around who loves his kids. Unfortunately, he discredited himself on last night’s show. Whether he said it because he meant it, or he said it because it was part of a fake storyline, he said it. And HE brought it up first. Again, this is all on him. All of that grabbing her hand and squeezing and tell Sheree she is his most trusted confident or whatever he said was bullshit. It’s Bob’s job not to look like an abuser on TV. Agreeing to film the jewelry scene just made him look worse. It is exactly the behavior of an abuser. Regret, apologies, gifts, promises to never do it again, or in this case saying he is not like that anymore is classic abuser behavior. So is trying to physically keep Sheree from leaving the store. No one forced Bob to do that.
Meanwhile, on Bob’s Instagram, he is quoting a bible verse in Matthew where Jesus is foretelling his impending crucifixion to his disciples. It’s very similar to Vicki Gunvalson screaming about being nailed to the cross like Jesus was. And she was guilty too.
