It seems the extra ninety minutes was just Bravo tacking on WWHL to the first airing of RHOA to force everyone to tape it. Works for me, it let’s me finish my blogging night earlier. This will probably take me longer to recap than the whole hour of the finale.
I think it makes sense to have a one on one with Nene since she was not on the episode much. Andy starts by asking about her health. I am really not buying what she is selling anymore. I generally don’t doubt anything that people say about their health. Their health is their business. Well wait now. This story is making sense I guess blood clots in the lungs and collapsed lungs. I didn’t know blood clots could make your lungs collapse, but I don’t have time to research that and get this up timely so we can talk.
Andy begins to discuss the reunion. Nene says that “people sometime try people over and over and over again,” Nene says that she doesn’t like Kenya but she is going to tell it how it is. Kenya kept trying Porsha. OMG They show what led up to it and Kenya is discussing some tabloid rumor with Andy and Porsha jumps in and Kenya waves her scepter in her direction (Cynthia is sitting in between them, Kenya is tellingly sitting first chair to Porsha’s last.) and tells her to shut up and stop interrupting her, just like Yolanda did on RHOBH and Brandi did on RHOBH. It was not major dis. It wasn’t like, oh I dunno, it wasn’t like she was calling her TRASHBOX a billion times in between shrieking CLOSE YOUR LEGS TO MARRIED MEN!. She was just dismissing her comment. Porsha grabs the scepter and jump up at Kenya like a thug in a cocktail dress. Continue reading
Why were there no first looks this week? Getting the first 8 minutes ahead of time really helps in the set up process! We begin the RHOA finale with Kandi rehearsing in her living room and she really sounds great. Todd and Kandi are worried about ticket sales. Kandi says that after the play, it’s time to get started planning the wedding. Kandi brings up the pre-nup again.
I like Kenya just fine but I just don’t get making a big ass production on TV over the death of her dog. I can see the crying scenes telling her cast mates about the passing, but not some road site funeral mess. And what the motherfuck is she wearing? Did her aunt just call the urn a urine. Where the hell are they? I just can’t with this. I didn’t watch Sonja burying her dog on camera this season, but personally, I can do without this. Just like the three episodes of slow death of Abby Lee Miller’s mom on Dance Moms. I don’t watch these shows for televised despair.
Ayden and Apollo made a cake to congratulate Phaedra on graduating from mortuary school. She wants to buy a crematorium. Sidenote: Ayden was sporting a large Band-Aid on his forehead. Continue reading

Sorry for the lack of blogging today. I left the house just after noon to go find a new laptop to replace the one with no keyboard. I’ve been looking for ages but I have commitment issues. One had a great processor, another great memory, another plenty of storage, another a 17″ screen, but finding more than two or so of those in one laptop? Insanely expensive. I finally found a compromise today in a Toshiba (sorry Urethra, you can say I told you so later). I had planned to watch the premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County today and make that the big blog of the day but that will have to wait until tomorrow as it took hours to find the laptop and I am still getting it all set up and fucking with Windows 8, which I hate more than idiots.

Last Week in Million Dollar Listing New York, we got caught up with the guys and their current properties. Ryan’s cool apartment with the car elevator is still way behind on construction so marketing is at a stand still. This means he has to go out with lessor mortals and vie for listings. He seems to get his listing price by being extremely cheesey and douche with female sellers. Perhaps it comes across better in person.
Luis, got his dream listing last week with the added bonus of Todd the dorky, and unfortunately licensed realtor, son of the sellers coming on as a co-lister. Todd is very disappointed that his mommy can’t come to the open house. Continue reading
Next Thursday, Lindsay Lohan will appear on Watch What Happens Live. Here at TamaraTattles, Lilo has been the source of much discussion and many arguments in the comments sections. If you haven’t read about her reality show, you really should click the link and see how that is going.
So let’s imagine LiLo on WWHL. Will there be a drinking word? Will there be a bartender? Will there be a bar? Will Andy have to do the whole show sober? Will Lindsay be sober? Is it me or is this going to be really strange. I can’t wait to tune in!
Click through for the rest of the WWHL schedule for next week. It kicks off with Nene Leakes! You can see the teaser for that here! Continue reading
And she actually asks some interesting questions. Is she trying to get on Fashion Queens or something similar? What’s up with this?
UPDATE! Just saw a commercial for this episode of WWHL and ANDY BRINGS UP THE INCIDENT AT THE REUNION! Hopefully he lets the Porsha freaks understand she is no longer employed so I can stop getting hate tweets and such. :)
It’s time to meet the cast of the newest Million Dollar Listing Franchise, Million Dollar Listing Miami! We have our first and only female Realtor on this franchise. That’s her in the Youtube above. Isn’t she just precious. She’s 29 and has three whole years of experience. Oh and she owns her own company. I did wonder if perhaps her daddy (sugar or familial) financed her company, until I got to the website. It’s clear that she is on the show for her desire to be on TV and not for her actual sales abilities. The two male agents, Chris Carroll and Christopher Leavitt are attached to the huge Douglas Elliman Real Estate Company. Thet both have eight figure listings. It’s like the guys own Country Time Lemonade and Sam has a lemonade stand in her neighborhood.
Click through for profiles of all three agents. Continue reading
Bravo announced a full slate of new scripted and “unscripted” shows for 2014 today. Although some of the “unscripted” shows sound like repackaged versions of other shows where a bunch of women “attempt to balance their personal and professional lives, ” others sound new and exciting. There is a dating show that films and airs in the same week, a fantastic sounding travel show, and a show set in London! The two scripted shows both seem to have potential, however, is it me or do they just introduce these scripted series and we never see them air?
Click through for the entire list of new and returning shows. Let me know if you Phaedra Parks name in there anywhere…:) Also absent? Real Housewives of Miami. Continue reading

We begin with Porsha in the studio. I was prepared for her to sound like Kim Zolciak, or the Countess, but she is actually not so bad. I’ve read good things about her song Flatline on my twitter feed but haven’t bothered to check it out. I’m definitely interested in what y’all have to say. The song she is recording here is called Perfectly Worthless. I wonder who is writing her songs because the writing is not bad. The universe seems to disagree with me since some lighting or something falls on her as she is recording.
Porsha is apparently spending time in the studio instead of going to play practice. She has missed numerous rehearsals. Kandi arrives at the studio and she is not amused.
Nene is in LA meeting with Steven Grossman, her manager, who apparently is a miracle worker and the one that does all the hustling to get Nene bookings. Yet, she walks into the room publically insulting him saying she is looking for a little short man, when she knows exactly where he is. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Nene. Nene is there to approve some sketches for her “fashion line” with HSN. (I thought it was Kmart. Or Sear. Or the Salvation Army. ) She of course makes it sound like HSN tracked her down and begged her to come on board. Continue reading

Jenni’s due date has come and gone and she could pop at any minute. So Jeff & Co being the good friends that they are mercilessly teasing her about her perineum tearing completely making “two holes become one.”
The clients this week are a celebrity couple (Zack from Saved by the Bell? and his wife) who need a nursery and that bitchy, shrieky, Lisa woman they worked for last season who is a bitch to Jenni. The only person who is allowed to be a bitch to Jenni is Jeff. Continue reading
I’m a bit behind because I have been keeping one eye on the tragedy at Fort Hood tonight. My mind is a bit distracted by that, and my heart is with those affected. I spent some time today watching the season two marathon since for some reason I stopped watching this show. That marathon really hooked me back in.
I think all of these guys are smarmy but still likeable. Fredrik is diabolical, Ryan shows his cards too quickly. He totally dropped the ball for his client on 250 Bowery last season. He called Fredrik up, who was desperate to move property, and straight up said I have a client who will do anything to get in the building. Who does that? The female brokers tend to walk all over Ryan too, and Fredrik as well to some degree. Luis is young and green and eager. But they are all pretty! Continue reading
Lisa Vanderpump has posted her Bravo blog and there is some interesting information in there. First she points out that several of the other cast members are not meeting their blogging commitments. Basically, Lisa, Carlton and Joyce get theirs up like clockwork, the others? Not so much. The implication was, they didn’t want the negative feedback for their behavior.
About Ken, Lisa said, “To have someone who is so principally minded, so loyal, on your side is the greatest comfort of all. Brandi had that with him, too, and she knew it and she blew it. For someone to protect you against others is reassuring when you don’t always make the best choices. Not many would put themselves in that position. He countless times, almost to the point of compromising his own integrity, went out on a limb for her. Thankfully he is now alleviated from that responsibility.”
Looks like there is no going back with Brandi. I hope she stands by that decision. Continue reading
