I don’t have much tea at all for you. Yesterday, I was sent lots of pictures that are floating around all over the place today. Clearly, they were leaked for a reason. But never in all my years of covering the reunions has it been so quiet on the tea front. Kandi was super late for her call time and that always pisses Andy off. I heard he was not in a particularly good move to start with. There were rumors that it was scheduled as a two part reunion in advance. Sounds like they didn’t have much they were going to talk about.
Andy is never going to call the women out for the gay shaming. If he does, it will only be Kenya, because that is the way he rolls. Nene, Porsha, and Phaedra have been gay bashers since the beginning of time.
They will talk about the fight between Cynthia and Porsha, which earned Porsha her seat next to Andy. They probably did not talk about Porsha attacking some woman at the Christmas party.
We will get the conversation with Kim Fields about being in over her head. She may even announce she is not planning to return even in advance of the pickup letters that will not go out for a couple of weeks. At least.

It’s most anticipated day of the RHOA season! The ladies are greasing up their ham shanks (Porsha and Phaedra) like they are going to be the pigs in a pig wrestling competition. Meanwhile, on the other couch, Kenya and Cynthia are making sure their hair is laid like the rugby queen after a winning game. Not sure if Kandi is late or just has a different call time so they can do all the Jamaica stuff first. She’s a new mom and I can see her not wanting to or not being able to be away from the new baby for that long. Babies gotta eat! I would work that excuse if I were her.

From Kim’s Blog
Bravotv.com: Have you ever had to travel with the kids without your husband before?
Kim Fields: Yes. We do have sitters who have travel with me or we get assistance when we get to a city, when we are provided enough lead time to coordinate. There are unfortunately crazies out there, I can’t just call anybody.
Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind during the meeting with Congresswoman Wilson?
KF: I thought she was engaging, insightful, and passionate about her inspiring work not only in Congress but with her foundation. THE FUCK? You got all that before you stormed out with your boys?
Bravotv.com: Do you regret going on the D.C. trip?
KF: Not at all!! Nothing but wonderful things have come from the DC trip! I’m delayed getting this out today because I was just with Congresswoman Wilson at her event where she honored me and my family.

I’m going to be honest – this episode of RHOA , titled “There’s No Business Like Friend Business” should have just been called “There’s No Business Watching This Mess.” I understand not every episode can be filled with Porsha getting cooter-punched, but this certainly was a filler episode if I’ve ever seen one. We open up with a quick montage of Kenya perfecting her online-dating profile, Kim on a Skype call, Porsha hosting at Dish Nation (I gotta give it to her, I’m usually not the biggest Porsha fan – but the girl does a good job over at Dish Nation.) and finally Cynthia receiving YELLOW roses from Peter. Per Google, yellow roses symbolize friendship, joy & good health. Real good look for someone in the midst of a potential cheating scandal. I’m not a flower guy myself, but I’d say red is typically the way to go in this situation. Cynthia is generally unimpressed. Maybe she googled the meaning of yellow roses too.

We cut to Kandi & DonJuan in a meeting with Demetria (!!!) & Roger Bobb about producing new music together. Demetria must really need that day-rate. The two ladies have recorded a single called “Unnecessary Trouble” – they want to start promo for the song, and film & release a music video. DonJuan steps up as mommy (PS where is Mama Joyce this season?!) and announces Kandi’s high-risk pregnancy and that she must not be over worked. OK mommy. Kandi comments in her talking head if J-Lo had a baby over 40 with no time off, so can she. DonJuan continues to come for his Peach. Watch out, Papa Smurf – you’ve got some competition!

Cynthia’s Bravo Blog is up. She basically recaps exactly what happened just like I did. Imagine that. It must be frustrating to not be able to discuss things that were not shown. I know for a fact we are missing a lot of events in editing. Also, I’ve heard claims today that Porsha’s PR team was behind a lot of the Porsha support on social media. I’m not sure I believe that. There are a lot of idiots in the world that Porsha clearly appeals to. I always thought the reality shows with all the violence were popular because of the entertainment value of watching morons fight. Now I believe that a large percentage of people who watch those show think it is admirable behavior and that the victims somehow deserve to be attacked. Sad.
Bravotv.com: How do you know Tammy?
CB: Tammy and I have a mutual close friend in New York City, who thought we should meet. (cough Andy Cohen cough) I love meeting new people, so I decided to invite her to Lake Lanier. I thought this would be a great opportunity for us to hang out and introduce her to my friends. That was our first time hanging out, and we are still getting to know each other. (Translation: Don’t blame me for her pestering Kandi, I don’t even know the bitch.)
For those of you routing for Cynthia and Leon to be back together…. I am starting to think that the scenes with her and Leon were filmed after the fact. The last production filming I know about was last Sunday and I am pretty sure the season wrapped with Porsha wearing some slutty red dress over to Phaedra’s. I think that was the last thing on the production slate.
Anyway, both of Noelles parents were serving up Thanksgiving dinner in a church. And Peter was flying off too…. somewhere on Thanksgiving Day.
But it doesn’t mean post production is done and they won’t come back to shot Cynthia and Leon reunion… Who knows?
They do look totally in sync.
