Sorry, I am just out of it today, I was up when the sun came up, exhausted and brain dead and just could not go to bed. Thank you all so much for hitting the tip jar yesterday I don’t want to forget anyone. I’m having tech issues and really need to get out and buy a new laptop. Life just seems overwhelming at the moment,
Anyway, Nene is on Kimmel so I am watching. Okay she is the last guest and I am exhausted so I am going to make this quick. She strutted out in an all crème/white outfit looking good! Nene immediately addresses her “exotic dance” experience and says she has soul so she is going to bring it. Nene is already attacking the front runners who are clearly the not one but TWO gold medal winning Olympic ice dancers. She says she has soul and they don’t. Nene is already trash talking. SIGH. I don’t think anyone in the mix to win even knows she is on the show. She says she is training four hours a day… hmmm six is the norm… My TV cut out and when it came back she was talking about the potential to switch and talking about Max. I don’t think she has to worry about America pairing Nene with Max. Continue reading
UPDATE: I just wanted to clear something up that I am clearing up now while sifting through the day’s comments. I do not think Nene is lazy AT ALL. I think she has been one of the best hustlers of “her brand” on any housewives show. This is another example of her people hustling for her… she is great at HUSTLING GREAT OPPORTUNITIES. She is even better at fucking them up. She is also a quitter when things get tough. And DWTS is fucking HARD. Like BOOT CAMP hard. Nene does not have that level of physical endurance. This will be the death of her career. It’s like me saying I am going to sign up for Navy Seal BUD/S training to defend you all from evil. She’s going to ring out. That’s all I am saying.
We’ve heard the rumors, likely leaked by Nene herself, that Nene is going to be on Dancing With The Stars, and this morning my email inbox was full of readers of TamaraTattles.com lamenting the official announcement. I for one am thrilled that Nene has been asked to be on DWTS! This is the best career ending move we could have hoped for, y’all! Now we just need to start a pool to see how long she hangs in there before she ”drops out for medical reasons!”
I think the current record is one week of practice and never even appearing on the show, held by Vincent Pastore of the Sopranos. Vincent just copped to it being to tough within the first week of rehearsals and never saw a single episode. Will Nene Leakes make it farther than Vincent Pastore?
Well, let’s see how Nene performs under difficult filming circumstances. As Dr. Phil says, “Past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior.” Continue reading
If you haven’t been over to read Kenya’s Real Housewives of Atlanta blog you probably should. It’s a bit lengthy for those with short attention spans, but it’s well-written and makes a lot of good points. If you would to just read my thoughts on the blog, here are five bulleted points that came to my mind as I read her blog.
- Nene cannot give or receive an apology. Kenya has apologized to Nene for “her part” in the Pajama Brawl on numerous occasions, despite being treated rudely by Nene from the moment she arrived. AND despite the fact that a lot of us don’t think she did anything to apologize for and was merely sticking up for herself when being attacked by a man! Nene on the other hand ranted at her guests like a caged animal and continues to deny any blame for what happened. Continue reading
As I previously referenced here and here James Radford Jr. has filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in the case of Phaedra Parks v Angela Stanton. Radford has published the motion in its entirety on his website. In addition to asking for a judgment in favor of Stanton, Stanton is also requesting legal fees due to the frivolous legal action.
Stanton provides numerous examples of evidence of the close bond between the plaintiff and defendant. Both women it seems have introduced the other to their families and have socialized with each other’s families on numerous occasions. It seems that Phaedra had been a many of Angela’s family gatherings and attended Angela’s mother’s funeral even though Angela herself was incarcerated at the time of her mother’s death. To be fair, Phaedra does love her a good funeral… what? She does! Continue reading
This morning James Radford, Angela Stanton’s attorney
filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in favor of Stanton
. They are asking for all charges against Stanton to be dismissed.
Based on Stanton’s own deposition and the two I have posted today
, all the evidence on record supports that the information in Stanton’s book is true.
Phaedra Parks has REFUSED to give a deposition according to my sources. A motion for sanctions against Phaedra for refusing to give a deposition has also been filed,
according to my sources.
How the heck can you refuse to be deposed about the claims of your case? I mean she is the PLAINTIFF for crying out loud! Why would you not want to make your claims under oath and on the record? Very Odd.
A courthouse source has provide this deposition, and another that will follow in the second part of this series of posts exclusively to Tamaratattles.com. Please be professional when referring to this post and provide the appropriate credit and links! Thanks.
This second deposition was taken last December by telephone. James Holland is the father of one of Angela Stanton’s children and is currently incarcerated. I am bemused by the fact that the term “head doctor” was used in an actual deposition. Is that wrong? Continue reading
This deposition of Justin Cody, a father of one of Angela Stanton’s children, was taken by James Radford, attorney of record for Angela Stanton, as part of pre-trial discovery. The deposition was taken at Robert A. Deyton Federal Prison last November. It’s full of interesting information that appears to validate the information in Stanton’s book, Lies of a Real Housewife. Cody states that Phaedra Parks was a participant in and perhaps the mastermind behind, a serious of criminal activities for which Stanton was prosecuted and convicted. A courthouse source has provide this deposition, and another that will follow in the second part of this series of posts exclusively to Tamaratattles.com. Please be professional when referring to this post and provide the appropriate credit and links! Thanks.
Many of us felt that the tone Stanton’s book had the feel of a “scorned lover.” It is interesting to read the reason Cody cites for his breakup with Stanton. Continue reading
Apologies in advance if the recaps come out a little slower tonight. I’m having laptop issues on my end and using a temporary keyboard I am not used to. We start tonight with one of those staged husband and wife scenes where Nene and Gregg recount for the cameras the previous nights events. Let me just start by saying that Nene is telling it all wrong.
This “she said,she said” that happened last week about the event being to “honor Nene.” Is manufactured. Kenya held a charity event and selected a charity that Nene claims involvement with as a way to smooth things over with Nene. She did not use Nene’s name to invite people to the event. She selected a charity that Nene claims to support in an attempt to placate Nene after the whole Pajama Brawl situation. Nene made herself look stupid. No one else had a hand in that. A simple, “Thank you all for coming out for this worthy cause. I hope you will all consider making a donation to one of my favorite charities.” would have sufficed. Now Nene is trying to say she was bullied into attending the ball. Continue reading

…Shamekia Jackson for the hilarious Phaedra Parks fictional piece below. I can’t believe this website/station is affiliated with NBC. In fact, I just tweeted NBC to double-check. Now, I get the occasional chickenhead in here squawking from time to time about my bias, or my typos, or my grammar, all in the name of journalistic integrity. What they fail to understand is that journalistic integrity applies to journalists. I’m just some chick on a couch yammering on about my opinions of really bad television shows with some trial news and pop culture news sprinkled in. I am certainly not paid by a major media outlet to present an accurate account of what is going on in my community.
Check out Shamekia’s journalistic skills. Warning: If you are drinking a beverage, please set it aside and swallow before continuing, because this puts the ‘gomer’ in Montgomery.
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Best known as one of the popular housewives on Bravo’s reality show “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, Phaedra Parks spoke to students of Alabama State University about leadership, black history month and the steps she’s taken to reach success.
Well, ain’t that special. Phaedra Parks is speaking to our future generations about how to become successful. Continue reading
Apparently, Kandi and Mama Joyce and Todd were on yesterday. Mama Joyce continued to lay into Todd, Kandi was crying and they are all still talking about it today. Apparently, Whoopi told Mama Joyce to mind her own business and have a seat. I have to wonder if any of this is real. Why would you go on national TV with your mother and your boyfriend when you know full good and well your mama is going to trash your man. On the other hand, why would you allow it as a fake storyline either? RHOA is just a hot mess these days.
By the way the Friday shows are the View are filmed after the Thursday shows on Thursday so it is likely that Nene ran into Kandi and Todd and Mama Joyce backstage.
They start with Nene’s crappy speech at the charity ball. She is wearing a black cocktail dress and her Johnny Tremain/ George Washington with that seems even bigger than usual. Sherri starts by asking her opinion on Mama Joyce and the whole Kandi situation. Sherri ass what she has to say about that situation, Nene says, “Nothing.” Oh so it is going to be one of those “interviews.” Sherri ass again if she thinks Mama Joyce should let Kandi make her mistakes. Nene says, “She should let Kandi make her mistakes.” Why is everyone so sure Kandi is making a mistake? Continue reading
I really don’t want to make this post. But I will because people who try to seek “fame” in general make me wonder if their mama didn’t hug them enough. The older I get, the more I take a self inventory. The past few days have in fact wiped me out as I did that. I won’t over share for once, other than to say, I have been in some negotiations for my services lately and I acted like a total jackass during those negotiations. As a result, I was forced to take inventory of myself and why I react the way I do in certain situations. I’ve had a painful few days where I acted like an asshat in my professional arena, and have tried to grow as a person with the help of some much needed therapeutic assistance. My therapist’s advice was essentially to learn from your mistakes and try not to make them in the future. Please deposit $180 in my tip jar for that So advice. Fine. I paraphrase. $18 will do. lol. These are the jokes people. Sort of. But I share that because I think it relates to this story.
I am growing tired of people posting in the OTHER Saving Our Daughters post comments “Didja hear they are not a real charity?” Yes. Yes. I did both in comments HERE and HERE! So I am updating y’all on what we know. I am changing to purple font at this point.
Despite the HUGE spotlight placed on Curtis Benjamin and his “charity” the site continues to portray themselves as :
Our Vision / Approach: Saving Our Daughters is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose philosophy is to build a movement that begins with experiential literacy and effortlessly flows into recurring civil actions (words and actions). Continue reading
Kenya has a whole lot to say on her Bravo blog this week! Let’s look at a few excerpts and dissect them shall we? As usual, my comments will be in purple text.
“NeNe and I are both survivors of domestic violence. I, particularly, have a penchant for any charity that supports women and helps young girls thrive. Saving Our Daughters (SOD) is one I too firmly believe in and thought would help a lot of girls in need with their struggles in life. Previously, I promised NeNe that I would throw an event to benefit her favorite charity. That I did with no ulterior motive.”
Even though I have taken a seat on the Kenya Love Bus of 2014, I do not believe for a minute that Kenya did the charity event strictly out of the goodness of her heart. Nor do I believe that she was trying to get in Nene’s good graces. I believe that Kenya knows Nene well enough to know how to get her goat. And she not only succeeded at that the got her whole farm. And frankly? I think it is about time Nene got a taste of her own medicine. She needed to be brought down a few pegs. Kenya managed to do this while coming out smelling like a rose. For that, I have to give the girl props. Continue reading
Saving Our Daughters, the charity mentioned as the beneficiary for Kenya Moore’s charity event has issued a rather lengthy statement regarding the events surrounding their involvement or lack there of in the Masquerade Ball depicted on last Sunday night’s RHOA.
In their statement they state that they did not receive any of the proceeds from the event. However they did receive a $500 contribution toward their Christmas fund.
I will include the entire statement by Saving Our Daughters after the jump. Continue reading
