Not only has Nene Leakes landed the role of the evil stepmother in a Broadway production of Cinderella, a new report says that she will make an appearance on the final season of Glee! According to The Wrap, Nene will return for at least one episode to reprise her role as Roz who has been both a synchronized swim coach and cheerleading squad leader on the long running series.
Nene, who is a special pet of Ryan producer , was also cast on his show The New Normal which was cancelled after one season. It seems like I read ions ago she had one episode left on her Glee contract. If I had to make a guess based on absolutely no information, I’d bet my money that she will appear on the final episode when many of the former actors on the show will make a final return.

Tomorrow in the ATL a new fancypants multi-use complex is having its grand opening. I don’t know if this is happening all over the country but here multi-use complexes are the next big thing. From Buckhead, to a stones throw from my ghetto, high-end multi-use conglomerates have been booming for the past decade. The concept is live, work and socialize all in the same little neighborhood. Most of them have high-end townhouses or apartments, a Whole Foods, and a variety of upscale restaurants and taverns in addition to some sort of shopping area, movie theater and other attractions. Atlantic Station was one of the most popular ones to date in the Atlanta area.
Tomorrow is the officially opening of the grand kahuna of such developments, Buckhead Atlanta. While the official opening is tomorrow, it seems they are allowing the felons by Bravo adjacent in tonight for an invitation only black tie event to celebrate the housewives who have tons of money to
hide/launder spend at Hermes. The invitations went out to their best Atlanta customers and clearly to the folks related to people they have a promotional deal with like, Bravo. Hermes and Fado Irish Pub have been there for a couple of years now, right in the middle of all of the construction. Tonight Hermes cut the ribbon on their new and improved location. The whole shebang will take many more months to roll out but RHOA and Love and Hip Hop Atlanta have done so much for Christian Louboutin’s reputation he has decided to bless us with a local freestanding store. I could barely type that with a straight face, but it is true that you will soon have a freestanding Loub store here in Atlanta. Other high-end stores include Jimmy Choo, Alice+Olivia, and Akris. Plus a bunch of overpriced restaurants I’ve never heard of because we need more of those. Not. Continue reading
There were some minor things that happened last week that I didn’t get around to blogging, mostly because none of it by itself seemed to warrant a blog. I’m cleaning out my post suggestion emails today and I thought I would just list some of them here briefly.
Shah of Sunset premiere has been pulled indefinitely. The premiere was set for October 13th but the post production crew has walked out. A curious thing has been going on with reality show production workers. Primarily in New York and California, production crews on reality TV are pushing to join the unions that normally represent scripted television. The whole reason reality shows became so popular was a writer’s strike by scripted writers many years ago. During the strike, networked hustled to find new things to put on the air and a variety of reality shows, game shows, and singing contests hit the airwaves. Production workers then began to work in reality based TV that was not unionized. Now that reality shows have script writers and production works long insane hours, they are not wanting to work as independent contractors anymore and to be covered like normal employees with medical benefits and sick days. Shahs is produced by a subsidiary of Ryan Seacrest Productions and they supposedly open to negotiations but nothing has happened yet so post production is walking the picket line.
Wendy Williams returns tomorrow. She has promised to literally eat crow on the episode after promising that she would if Kim and Kanye lasted over 72 days. I know she is often wrong about her hot topics, but I still sort of miss her show when it is not on. Will you be watching? I’m hoping this helps me to get up earlier in the mornings and stop staying up all night. Continue reading
Kim and Kroy are in Miami to go see Lisa Hochstein’s husband, the boob god. Is that because there is no comparable surgeon in Atlanta? Probably not. More like another Bravo trade-out for publicity that the Biermann’s benefit from. These people know how to work the free comps. Jesus Christ, Kroy is Facetiming with the baby while driving in Miami traffic. I’m going to have a heart attack just watching that! Please just drive when you are behind the wheel, people!
Why did they blur out all the pictures in the office? I wanted to see what percentage of them were of Lisa! Kim and Kroy amuse themselves with the assortment of fake boobs on Dr. Hochstein’s desk. Kroy even shoves two under his shirt. These two are like a couple of teenagers. If teenagers had SIX KIDS! Kim is having flashbacks to her childhood spent waiting in the principal’s office. Sweetie is home with the kids and can’t stop calling to check on them. Kim is getting her implants updated and tummy tuck. I can’t believe she showed her boobs and her belly on national TV! I didn’t know that fake boobs got saggy like that! I thought that was the whole point. She is going to have skin removed from he boob in the lift. And he belly is covered with stretch marks and excess skin. I don’t know why I am surprised about that, she has had six kids. Continue reading
Not much really. She’s laying low at home with the kids and the babysitter. The film crew showed up this afternoon for just over an hour. There was no drama, no security alarms, no wild stories unlike the last time. But hey, they haven’t been gone two hours yet, so there is still time. I suppose she had some talking heads to do for her jailbird husband storyline. I’m torn between a game of GUESS THE HEADLINE! Perhaps something like Phaedra Refuses to Leave House! or maybe Phaedra Drowns Her Worries in Boxed Wine! Bravo Production Hold Intervention!
I find it odd that not one time has any housewife shown up to film at Phaedra’s house. Not even Kandi… Continue reading
Apollo is out on tour y’all!
In this post, I hope to separated the facts of the last 36 hours or so from the fiction that most sites are reporting. Let’s start with the things on the Atlanta end of the situation, as they are the easiest to confirm or debunk.
FACT: Apollo Nida has not been at his former residence with Phaedra since Sunday, September 7, 2014.
This is not even debatable. I have a source with eyes on the house all day long, every day. More than one actually. When your neighbor films a television show at their home, that gets the neighbors talking. When the man of the house makes news for committing fraud and is sentenced to the federal penitentiary, you become on heightened alert counting the days until leaves. For the past couple of months, I received daily updates, photos and commentary on the comings and goings at Chez Parks-Nida. I know the comings and goings of the nannies, Bravo film crew, make-up wardrobe people, Bravo cars provided for filming. It’s all documented. My source is golden. Continue reading
I am so behind today and only have an hour and a half until Couples Therapy. While drama raged on at Phaedra’s house, the fashionista gang of RHOA is in NYC to support Cynthia Bailey’s participation in Betsy Johnson’s show. Confirmed so far are Kandi, Kenya and Demetria. Clearly Phaedra is not there, nor is Nene or Porsha. Not sure about Claudia. Sorry I just don’t have time to research this today. I am doing about ten posts at once right now. Continue reading
Police arrived at Phaedra’s house around 4:30 this afternoon. Bravo cameras were still there filming an interior scene with Phaedra. Ayden was wandering around the neighbor’s houses despite his babysitter being on the scene. Ayden has several young playmates in the neighborhood but they are all at school. He is playing with a neighbor’s cat at the moment. I have also learned that Phaedra took the boys and the nannies to the beach when she left last Friday. The rest of the story is here.
The TMZ story is false. Apollo is NOT at the house. Phaedra has had an alarm system installed that has been malfunctioning a lot lately. The police have been out to the house several times since it was installed as has the Alarm company. There was no screaming, no Apollo, no confrontation. Continue reading
I hope my cellie has a purdy mouf!

Oh Look! It seems I am the source for another major websites story again today! Even still the site manages to get things wrong. Phaedra and Apollo filmed their last Real Housewives of Atlanta scenes last Thursday in a shoot that went late into the evening. The next day Phaedra took the boys and left. Reports that Phaedra was concerned for her physical safety are not true. In the last few weeks Apollo and Phaedra have been living together without any major incidents and have entertained friends and family who came to say their goodbyes over Labor Day weekend. Apollo spent his last two days home alone without visitors washing his car and riding his brand new motorcycle. On Sunday Apollo, left and headed to Tennessee where he spent the last two days of his freedom partying in Nashville. This morning he made the three-hour drive to Lexington and turned himself in. Perhaps that site can make some corrections to its story.
Felons by Bravo
UPDATE: Phaedra and the kids left the house on the evening of Friday the 5th and have not returned to the house. Apollo left Sunday the 7th about 2 pm to make is way to Kentucky. He drove his own car. No one has returned to the house yet. Apollo must turn himself in by noon tomorrow. He is supposedly spending tonight, in Nashville, Tennessee. Updates as they become available.

I’d like to move away from the #FelonsByBravo in New Jersey and focus on one of our hometown #FelonsByBravo , Apollo Nida, who is getting ready to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday. I’ve been hold back some steaming hot tea.
For the past few weeks, I’ve had a source very close to the situation with Phaedra and Apollo updating me on what has been going on. I’ve been keeping this under my hat to avoid outing my source and causing them any inconvenience, but the time has come to let you in on what my exclusive Tamara Tattles spies have been reporting.
It’s been a long hot summer to say the least between Apollo and Phaedra Parks. For most of May and June, Apollo was doing his Farewell Tour through the south’s sleaziest small town strip clubs “promoting his brand.” He was the cover boy for Sister2Sister magazine for the month of May and was going buck wild on twitter posting videos about “haters” who were “disparaging his brand.” He begged Twitter to “verify him” as a celebrity (they did not oblige.) It was phenomenally hysterical. During that time, Phaedra went on her Southern Belle Prayer Cloth Tour so that she would be out-of-town whenever he was not. It was War of the Roses and they went weeks without being home a the same time. Apollo spent some time in Philly. Phaedra spent some time with Kandi and Fantasia in Cancun for a big blowout girl’s trip to celebrate Fantasia’s birthday. The unhappy couple was anywhere away from home that they could be for months.
In July filming for RHOA began and things began to change. Apollo stopped the self-aggrandizing tweets and began just asking people on Twitter for emotional support. On July 8th his “eight-year” sentence was handed down. Phaedra did not support him or go to court. He was salty and gave some more delusional interviews. He really doesn’t know when to shut up. You can read about the actual amount of time Apollo will serve here. Continue reading
This is something I did not see coming. When Nene Leakes and Sherri Shepherd were both rumored to be up for the same part in the Broadway production of Cinderella, the initial rumors were they were angling for the part of the fairy godmother. In that story, to me the most important point was that Nene was so butthurt over comments made by Wendy Williams she was finger-painting “Wendell” on pocket books with nail polish.
As it turns out, both Sherri Shepherd and Nene Leakes have gotten the part of Cinderella’s mother to be played across from Keke Palmer. Cinderella has been on Broadway since January of 2013 with a predominantly white cast. That will all change next Tuesday when Sherri Shepherd and Keke Palmer take over the roles of on September 9th. Shepherd will be the first African-American woman to play the evil stepmother on Broadway. She will play the role through November 22. Nene Leakes will take on the role on November 25th presumably playing the role until the curtain falls for the last time January 3, 2015. Continue reading
