Nene Leakes Gets Some Furniture

RHOA NENE HOUSE 1

It’s been over a year since Nene Leakes bought her new house in Atlanta. There has been a lot of discussion since the move about her lack of furniture.  She even got really pissed off while on The View  when someone asked where her furniture was during her appearance. Nene was claiming for a while that she was going to be a furniture designer and sell her own line of furniture.  You really should click on that link, it’s a great post if I do say so myself. And as usual I was right, there is and never was a furniture line.

Someone has been sending me lots of Nene related interviews lately. It seems as though Larry King has taken his cancelled TV show to the  Internet and one of the people he has interviewed was Nene. When she was asked what she liked best about being famous, she said, “The perks.”  Even though she is still striving to receive some perks.

Leave it to Nene to find a way to get free furniture, at least for one room.

Filming Officially Begins For RHOA Season 9 Today!

RHOA Phaedra Giant Bagel
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.

RHOA Casting Tea: The Pass The Peach Game Begins… And a Bit of RHOBH Tea on The Side

 

RHOA Fire

I really hate this time of year because everyone keeps asking me about RHOA. I have a good bit of information about WHERE THINGS STAND NOW. However, as I have learned over the season, things change as filming begins. This is a time where there is a lot of turmoil.  You really never know what is going to happen.

So here is what I know so far. First, I want to dispel a rumor. I got the majority of my information last Friday. I decided to hold on to it because I had some followup questions and it was the long weekend and it wasn’t possible to reach the best sources because people were out having their last hurrah.  Sometime later that Friday, someone somewhere apparently started a rumor that someone was fired.  That is not true.  No one was fired last Friday. In fact, I just got a hold of my original contact who basically said, ” Look, I told you what is happening. No one was fired.”

So that means I can go ahead with the information I already had. The short version of that is “Everyone is asked back except Kim who quit. “  Except it’s never that simple. What I was told last week was that everyone was  asked back but Phaedra and Porsha have “limited contracts.”  This is a term that was used before.  In last year’s clusterfuck with things not working out with Nene,  Phaedra and Porsha were also not guaranteed full time status last season. There was even a moment where KENYA didn’t seem to be on solid ground. So here we go again. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 2 Recap: Andy Cohen is A Misogynistic Douchebag!

Happy RHOBH Reunion Day!

 

The Booze Cruise

We start right off with Porsha and Shamea acting a fool on the Booze Cruise and Porsha’s first violent episode of the season caught on camera.  Production opted not to show all of the long drawn out Porsha meltdown and how long it took her to calm down in the actual episode. Let’s hope that lost footage gets shown this time.

Oh but no. Shady Andy reads a nasty comment from a viewer asking CYNTHIA when she became such a thug. This explains a lot. I am hearing there is a lot of anger from both the crew that has to be present for all of Porsha’s violence and the cast over Andy and Bravo’s other executives nonchalant attitude regarding Porsha’s violence.  Andy allowed Porsha to make excuses for her behavior and blame Cynthia and then read nasty comments to Cynthia as if they are not dealing with a violent THOT.   Oh wait, we have made it EXACTLY three minutes into this episode without blaming KENYA MOORE. Some dumb cunt writes in that all three times there was violence on the show, Kenya was involved. The cunt satchel is talking about Pillow Talk, where Brandon was attacked by Apollo, Kandi went buck wild and everyone lost their shit, The reunion, when Kenya’s “involvement was getting attacked!” and Lake Lanier, where her involvement was asking an uninvited guest who was being ratchet to leave the event.  What the fuck is wrong with these people and why does Andy delight in making EVERY SINGLE ALTERCATION about Kenya????  I  can’t wait to see how Andy manages to blame KENYA for Porsha beating down some girl in the alley when my sources say it all went down before Kenya even arrived. I’m sure he will come up with something.  Then Andy brings up that SIX YEARS AGO Sheree grabbed Kim Zolicak’s hair.  He is desperate to defend the THOT in any way he possibly can. Now Andy gives Porsha plenty of time blame Cynthia again. This is just ridiculous.  Then they play Porsha attacking Kenya again. Porsha says she takes responsibility for her actions but it is Cynthia’s fault.

Porsha says something about Kenya and a one eyed African trying to deflect from the fact that Kenya said she beat down her assistant at the finale filming. WTF?

Project Runway All Stars Recap: Where Your Hose At?

Project Runway allstars  sam

This is Sam’s look. How the FUCK was this not on the bottom?

Weekends can be great for me because there is not a lot of  housewives drama going on and I get to catch up on the shows that only a few of us are watching together. It harkens back to the days when this was a much smaller site.  Then Sunday night comes and the madness begins again.  So let’s hit the highlights (and lowlights) of this week.

I forgot it was an unconventional materials challenge. These can be really hit or miss. This week, it’s medical supplies. So yuck. Maybe Kini will do a Herve Leger type bandage dress out of ace bandages. That is what I would do. You know, if I could design, or sew. Speaking of people who can’t sew, I hope Sam gets his comeuppance this episode.

I have to be honest. I don’t really remember most of these people’s names, so it is hard to recap the madness in the workroom. Sam won the unconventional challenge on his season. He feels confident.

I kind of love Ken and not just because he could go all insane in the membrane at any moment.  He is doing a hose dress and so is Sam. I really need for Ken to pull this off. He can be the villain again later, but for now, he will be my hero if he takes Sam down.

Alexander is going to make the word “surreal” the drinking word, or maybe the glue sniffing word, for this week’s episode. Valerie is trying to make a dress out of cotton swabs.  She’s in danger of being to artsy.  I sort of remember Stella from previous shows, and what I sort of remember is that she is on the wrong show. I am not sure what the right show is, but this is not it.

Sam is becoming a bitchy queen on this show who seems to think he is doing well on his own merits. It will be hard for anyone to do worse than Stella, but I really hope he pulls that off.  Asha is doing the same dress as someone else. NotTimGunn pretty much tells everyone not to be too crafty. Like artsy crafty.

Dom is struggling and Sam and Ken apparently have nothing better to do than stand around and watch her.  Stella abandons her alien coat and seems to have nothing.Kini is making a piñata.

Did Layana just tell her model her crotch stinks? Because that is what I got from it. I hope she meant the materials. Continue reading

Check Out This Tour Of Kandi Burruss’ House

 

It’s really only two or three rooms, But the décor is totally Kandi. I like how she pokes fun at her chairs with “weave.” I really didn’t realize how huge that house is!
