Happy first day of filming RHOA Season 9 y’all! In the days before filming starts I get all sorts of odd “sources” saying all sorts of things. It’s usually things we WISH were true but are not. This year there have been lots of rumblings about Phaedra that I really wanted to believe. But alas, the filming trucks started rumbling through her neighborhood at the butt crack of dawn this morning. I’ve also heard unconfirmed speculation that Phaedra’s mother has either been ill or had some sort of surgery and that this might play into her Phaedra’s storyline this season. As we know Phaedra and Porsha are on the outside of the group this season and her Phaedra’s mother often gives her someone to film with. Let’s hope Pastor Bell is doing well and this speculation is unfounded. I’d much rather see Phaedra and her mother, that Phaedra and Porsha.
Meanwhile, production is all in a dither because they have tried to plot out the storylines for this “reality” show and reality keeps on getting in the way of their scripts. Nene supposedly has some last minute thing happening in Vegas.. I am not sure if she is even on the way back the ATL yet or if they have worked out her schedule and contract requirements. Cynthia was in Negril as of yesterday enjoying her “almost single” life and possibly getting her groove back. Kenya has apparently been living on a plane for the last week or so between Mexico, Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles. If RHOOC is any example of the new overused storylines being passed around between franchises she needs to get home so we can see her giving herself IVF shots a la Meghan Edmonds. UGH. Porsha has been out buying new THOTwear for the season. Once again the show is out of the gate with a highly unsettled filming schedule.
