Before I even hear the drinking word, I have so much to say. Apologies in advance for how long it is going to take me to get this post up. First of all why is Porsha even on WWHL with her peachless behind. And her dress is so short I can see up into her damn uterus. I wonder how many times someone will have to tell her to keep her crotch covered on live TV! And her dress is too small for her fake tig ole bitties. /Breath Okay, I’m ready.
Phaedra looks amazing. Perhaps the best she has ever looked in a red dress that is not cut like it’s for a six year old. Shun got it right this time. Porsha does all sorts of weird gestures with Andy introduces her as the Princess of THOTLandia. Is she high? How could you even tell with her? Porsha also thinks it’s summer.
Today is Claudia’s birthday!
Andy starts right away with the coffee enema discussion. Ugh. Is it cold in the clubhouse tonight Phaedra? Because your headlights are on bright. Continue reading
Kandi has called in a stylist for a date with Todd. Normally, I would find this ridiculous, but this is Kandi we are talking about. Did you see what she wore in Manila? But this guy is NOT the stylist. He brings her some leopard crap. She needs to hire Shun Melson.
On the date he says he made the date because it is their therapy “homework.” And we are off to a bad start. Things continue to get worse. Todd asks her if she is ovulating. Kandi says she didn’t know if they would make it to their upcoming one year anniversary. And she answers his ovulation question by saying her period is about to start. Seriously. Sex toys, enemas and periods all in the first 20 minutes. Kandi asks if Todd still wants a baby. His show got a second season which is going to mean more time apart and the timing is bad. Kandi says they have an appointment with the fertility doctor. Todd wants to go to L.A. for a month and a half. Kandi says she doesn’t think they should go more than 2 weeks without seeing her. Todd wants Kandi to come to L.A. with him for the whole time.
So I was trying to get my work area set up to blog (AKA grabbing a snack, in this case literally popcorn) and I come in the room and I’m trying to figure out who this woman is Cynthia is talking to. It’s Noelle! When did she turn 35? Why is Cynthia asking Noelle who her date to Homecoming is as she is getting dressed to leave? This script makes no sense. Apparently, the script also includes Kenya coming over to help Cynthia parent her child. Why is Cynthia asking Kenya about the pilot when Cynthia is in it ? Shouldn’t she know? This whole scene is weird. Why is Kenya mentoring Cynthia’s kid how to walk? Oh wait, at least Cynthia pointed that out.
Cynthia and Peter chat about the trip. Cynthia is unhappy her butt is getting so big. It is looking bigger. Cynthia is trying to get Peter to help her with the Jamaican accent her character has on Life Twirls On.
The :40 mark out take was of Kenya acting in the show as a knife wielding bride. Cute!
Gregg takes Nene to Sardi’s. Nene thinks she is a real New Yorker. Brentt is having a good time playing hooky and hanging out in New York. Gregg points out that Brentt needs rules. Nene doesn’t seem to think so. Nene’s parenting track record leaves much to be desired. Continue reading

As you might imagine, my mother was an interesting woman with very strong opinions. #AppleTree During her time, people did not have allergies, or asthma or lots of other things like broccoli or lawns with grass. It’s amazing the things we think always were isn’t it? So even when such things arrived she continued to deny the existence of some of them. Like seasonal allergies. We don’t believe in them in my family. I’m only half kidding. I say this to say that since I am forbidden by maternal doctrine to have allergies; I do not. But when the pollen count is in the mid four figures, as it is today, I feel some kind of way. My face feels dead, my eyes take effort to remain fully open. And I feel as though I’ve taken an “in-flight with high turbulence” level of Xanax when I have in fact had none. I tell you this longass story as an apology, in advance, for today’s lack luster blogging efforts.
Is it just me or does the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta seem like it happened three weeks ago? This week Only Phaedra, Kenya, Cynthia and Claudia submitted blogs and all used the question format provided by Bravo for I thought I’d just purple pen them all at once. Continue reading
Things continue to plod along over at Chateau Sheree and TamaraTattlles.com readers from the area continue to keep me updated. It seems the electricity is finally working so Sheree can get used to paying for utilities on this monstrosity.
Reports are that the landscape was looking a bit rough and that someone drove off in a U-Haul and locked the gate just before this picture was taken. There was no work being done. It’s Spring Break in the ATL so I’m sure Sheree is off somewhere with her children discussing the lieberry and skatin’ rink finally coming to fruition. Continue reading
Kenya Moore takes the spring cover of Kontrol Magazine with a brand new look that channels her inner Naomi Campbell. Kenya wears a dramatic long wig (take notes on how this is done, Nene) and sports bangs that were cut right on the set. She looks amazing. Inside the magazine Kenya gives an extensive interview about life on the real housewives as well as some new information about her private life. Is she still hoping to have a baby? Pick up the spring issue later this month at your nearest Barnes and Noble to find out!
In the mean time, here are a few juicy excerpts from the featured story… Continue reading
So of course Steve introduces Phaedra as a “southern belle.” I tell you what. I like a lot of things about Steve Harvey but I don’t think he far above Phaedra on the food chain. I know he has a lot of skeletons with his ex and his kids. He seems to give good advice, but I’m not sure that the company he keeps and admires makes him much of an example. I don’t want to believe that, but I am starting to. As he is doing the intro, they are showing the cover of her book. Didn’t that book come out in like 1979?
They show the clip where she tells her mama that she wonders if Apollo is suicidal or psychotic. Steve introduces her as his buddy. Which is really all I need to know about Steve Harvey. The audience is very loud in their welcome.
Phaedra is in all black dress and looks lovely despite the two extra large caterpillars she is using as eyelashes. Steve asks her what she was thinking in that video. She was thinking, ” I’m going to make this man look like a total nut case and divorce myself from him as much as possible while this show is still filming.” And on Steve Harvey she is thinking, “Okay, try to seem relatable to women…” So she starts with her,” like many women….. I had an idea of the American dream and I thought I was living it so this was sort of like the death of a dream.” Okay. I am not going to be able to transcribe this nonsense. I’m going to have to do more of a purple pen interpretation for you.
Has she always had a super big top lip? Because it seems like she is having trouble talking because she is not used to her lips. I am so busy watching them I cannot focus on what she is saying. Continue reading
With her Mama. And she appears to be um, a lot less somber and sedated than other times we have seen her. Wonder if they will talk about the reunion or if she will be there speaking on one of her many topics of expertise? Parenting? Good Christian Values? Bikini line maintenance for strippers? Employment contracts for adult entertainment workers? I can barely contain my curiosity until the show airs.
The ladies at The Farm
The ladies must move on from their Zen resort (The Farm) and move on to their next destination. Everyone is relaxed and getting along! They are heading back to Manila to stay at the Shangri la Makati Hotel in Manila. They are really putting on the dog for the housewives with half the staff greeting them a manager escorting them to penthouse level.
I was just going to ignore this part, and then there it was! Another shocking talking head look. It’s not even the wig that is so damn bad. It might be the eyebrows. It might be the eye makeup. The lipstick is God awful. The teeth are bigger and whiter. She looks like a drag queen but I can’t figure out what exactly makes it so shockingly bad other than…EVERYTHING. Especially the eyebrows.
THEY ARE GIVING NENE A MONTAGE OF HER MOMENTS ON RHOA! THIS IS A GREAT SIGN!
Here is a Nene link for you Nene lovers that want a TT version of the montage. Continue reading

I was actually more interested in power drinking than watching or recapping this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta episode in the Philippines. I think I still have it on my DVR, I’ll have to rewatch. Likewise it seems the Real Housewives of Atlanta themselves are more interested in power drinking than turning in a blog. Cynthia is the only good girl of the bunch this week. Nene is doing some of her Bravo foolishness by not blogging on the Bravo site, and now instead off pretending she is writing her own blog on her website, she’s decided just to toss her ghostwriter and just let whoever sends in a recap to her do it. She says to start the blog with something like, “Since Nene is not talking anymore…” Because she is having some sort of tantrum.
Perhaps she, too, simply got fed up with the refusal of an angry mob of commenters to embrace the existence of Progressive Judaism and consider other salient facts in a well thought out post she had written. At any rate, I considered sending Nene my recap in Hebrew, it did very well in the ratings.
But let’s take a look at Cynthia’s contribution of the week. Continue reading
אני בוכה לאנשים שלי
הלילה, עקרות בית האמיתית של אטלנטה הלכו למנילה.
זה היה פרק גדול באמת.
הייתי recapped את זה אבל היום הוא יום ראשון של הדקלים ואני fobidden כדי לקבל גישה לtechology בימים נוראים.
שלום להיות איתך בעונה זו של עדשים.
Something Kenya posted on Twitter.
EXCLUSIVE! Tamara Tattles Tea on the Real Housewives of Atlanta 2015 Reunion! Please use excerpts and provide links to this source when quoting.
Y’all are terribly impatient when it comes to RHOA Reunion Tea! It takes me awhile to synthesize my information and get the best idea of what actually went down from the many voices who are dropping some hints. Some sources just love to make you ask every little detail and that is so tiring at this point that I can’t be bothered. I just going to go with who seems to have taken the worst beating this season. The good news is, the top three recipients of a good old RHOA read are all on Team Beast!
But first the seating situation. On the left couch, we have Kenya next to Andy, then Cynthia then Kandi, On the right couch we have Nene , Phaedra and then Claudia!
Later when Porsha came out, Claudia moved to the Team Pretty plus Kandi couch and Porsha sat with Team Beast.
Also, despite the Asian themed set, I was told that the filming was indeed at The Biltmore again. That does not look like The Biltmore to me, but… apparently, it is.
As for how the ladies looked, I heard great thing about everyone except Porsha who was dressed for her other job if you know what I mean. I’m told that Nene got it right for the reunion. I’m not sure how much faith we should have in that report but in the spirit of fairness I’m letting you know that reports are that Nene looked good. The usual “did she have some work done?” rumor went to Kandi. Waist training? New Boobs? Good Spanx? Whatever it was, she got good reviews as well. In fact, everyone was at their best except for the peachless one. Continue reading
