Real Housewives of Atlanta Attended Black and White Premiere

RHOA Claudia and Demetria at Black and White

Last Friday, Kevin Costner and Anthony Mackie were in town for the premier of their movie, Black & White. The movie is about a white grandfather, played by Kevin Costner, and a black grandmother, played by Octavia Spencer, who fight for custody of their bi-racial grand-daughter. There was a step and repeat and a whole bunch of paparazzi so that means…. HOUSEWIVES!

Claudia and Jordan were in attendance looking awesome and having a fun night at the movies. And so was one other housewife. Continue reading

Kim RIchards Guest Stars On Revenge, As a Coke Head Socialite

revenge_wallpaper_by_juliamoskvina-d5le46e

I used to be really into Revenge and even recapped it here from time to time but I’ve grown bored with it. I still tape it and sort of half watch it. It’s just sort of jumped the shark for me.  I don’t have any idea why Nolan is getting married and really am not following the storylines much anymore. But I though I would do a quick post on Kim’s appearance. Click below for the interesting tea on her character on the episode. All 14 words. Continue reading

Kandi Burruss and Ne-Yo on WWHL

WWHL with Kandi

Andy starts by asking how Todd is doing since Sharon passed. Kandi says that he is holding up. Kaela is with them and he has his family to be strong for. Andy says that “Riley is 11″ was trending on Twitter. Kandi seemed a bit defense saying she acts age appropriate and she can’t help that she is tall.  Kandi seems oblivious to the fact that the issue was with an 11 (now 12) year old wearing the hair of three Filipino women on her head. Kandi seemed touchy about the whole thing. In his opening Andy also made a comment that Kandi’s mother will beat you with her shoe and you could hear Kandi groan. Kandi is just sort of disagreeable tonight.

Andy brings up that Todd was not overly excited about the car. Kandi says she was disappointed and though that someone must have tipped him off. Todd is at the clubhouse somewhere. Andy asked if Kandi was made at him. She says no, she just thought that whole scene was messy. I guess she means the car scene.

Andy plays the sperm count scene as a sitcom with a laugh track. Because that was just ridiculous.

Exclusive: What Caused the Rift Between Kandi and Phaedra?

Phaedra and Kandi LOL

This post is a Tamaratattles.com EXCLUSIVE. Please be sure to credit and link properly if you like to use it on your blog.

I was not going to write this tonight but once I mentioned I had more tea, y’all are forcing me to make the post!  I love that you are all so interested.

What I found out today is that when Todd was still supportive of Apollo, and Kandi sort of rode the fence between being supportive of Phaedra and Apollo, Phaedra was none too thrilled. Todd was very supportive of Apollo and hung out with him sometimes with Kandi present. Phaedra saw this as a betrayal. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Road Trip!

Clearly in Puerto RIco Kandi was still friends with Phaedra.

Nene

On tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies arrive back home from their trip. Nene’s personal valet picks her up at Hartsfield. Nene talks to Gregg about being around all those negative girls. LOL. Nene explains her version of the fight to Gregg. At that was all we saw of Nene. Expect to see less and less of her as the season goes on. This episode was also Porsha and Demetria free.

Phaedra

Phaedra and Derek J continue the fake storyline where Phaedra is representing  Derek who is accused of stealing used weave.  In the office that is not hers. I am so over this show and all it’s fakery. Phaedra’s momma comes in to talk about Apollo leaving for prison.

Meanwhile, Apollo takes the boys out for frozen yogurt and tries to prepare them for his departure. Apollo seems genuinely remorseful. Or at least sad that he has to leave his boys. Continue reading

Tom Schwartz Skewers Stassi And Hints He’s Hiding Something

Pump Swartz

Of all the idiots on Vanderpump Rules, Tom Schwartz seems to be the most easy-going. Sure he’s a bit socially anxious, but he seems like a nice guy. He puts up with all of Jax’ crap without much grumbling and seems  to have a very laid back attitude to the drama. That said, he is clearly completely over Stassi and how she treated is girl, Katie.  In his blog post this week her refers to her as “fallen dictator”.

But the interesting thing is his ominous comment at the end. He seems to have some guilt about something and preparing to make a confession. Will that be the end of Schwartz and Katie? Continue reading

Kandi Burruss Says, “I’m Not Two-Faced!

Clearly in Puerto RIco Kandi was still friends with Phaedra.

Clearly in Puerto RIco Kandi was still friends with Phaedra.

When it comes to RHOA Kandi and Kyle Richards have a lot in common.  Both of them seem a bit more sensitive to social media criticisms than their housewives counter parts. In her blog this week, Kandi defends herself against Twitter folks who think she is “two-faced .” Basically, her point is she really isn’t close to anyone Nene or Claudia so she really sees the humor in everyone going in on each other.

Kandi shares that Claudia’s read went on much longer that the brief clips we saw and that Claudia read Nene for filth. Kandi just seems to find the whole Real Housewives of Atlanta thing amusing. Perhaps it is that attitude that led to the fallout between Kandi and Phaedra? Kandi and Phaedra have always been pretty much ride or die. I’m trying to find out what happened but I have a feeling that Phaedra sided with her husband and took Apollo’s side in the breakup. Friends are always forced to choose sides when there is a breakup. I’m trying to contact Source to see if they know the tea. It’s been a while since I asked a question so maybe I’ll have some tea soon.:)

I love the picture above. Kandi was still friends with Phaedra in Puerto Rico. Perhaps the revelations to come about “Mr.Chocolate ” was the turning point? Sympathy for Apollo may have been the issue. Continue reading

Phaedra and Demetria Discuss Their Tentative Truce

RHOA Demetria

Bravo

This week both Phaedra Parks and Demetria McKinney discuss Demetria’s apology. Let’s just say that one of them was sincere in their discussion and the other one knew what the right thing to say was, but seemed to be just going through the motions.

It was kind of Demetria to apologize to Phaedra for the 8 comment; HOWEVER, she was certainly owed an apology from Phaedra for all of her rude behavior. Clearly, that apology was not forth coming.  In order to put their differences aside in a genuine way, I think Phaedra will have to do that with sincerity or there will be no hope of even a cordial truce. I would not advise anyone to hold their breath waiting for that to happen.

Demetria is disappointed in the divide between the ladies. From her perspective, the beauty versus beast description is a false one. Demetria says it has nothing to do with outer beauty. She says it has to do with the personalities of the women. One side is full of double standards and judgments and the other side is more light-hearted and fun. Continue reading

Gia Giudice Posts Haunting Song, “Just 13″

Well this is rather heartbreaking. Check out Gia’s new (heavily autotuned) song Just 13. She talks about people tweeting about her mother’s prison sentence like it’s a joke. It’s very haunting and sad, but totally worth a watch. Is that clip at the end on the day her mother left for the big house?

Gia turned 14 officially on January 8th. But the Sunday before Teresa left for prison, the family went to Mass together in the morning and later in the day Teresa threw a fiesta for Gia and all of her friends Continue reading

Claudia Shares Her Past And Why She Could Not Accept Nene’s Apology

 

Bravo

Bravo

Claudia’s blog this week was very personal. She had a lot to say both about the episode we saw last Sunday, and about Nene’s part in the sudden wave of negative posts about Claudia. Convenient timing? Claudia opens up about past trauma in her life to explain why she needed more from Nene that a weak, insincere apology. Frankly, I’m still shocked Nene apologized at all.

Claudia is also confused by Nene’s double standards. Nene’s past working the pole and attracting Gregg while he was married coupled with her clear support of Porsha and her married sugar daddy seem out of line with her “Close your legs to married men!” philosophy.  In part of her blog I didn’t excerpt due to length, she also takes issue with Nene’s bizarre need to shout her many jobs to the other ladies as if they are all not working themselves. Claudia points out she got he SAG card in 1994 and has been working ever since. That’s what adults do. Working is not something exclusive to Nene, they’ve all been working for years. Nene is just new in the industry.
