Real Housewives of Atlanta: All Tea, All Shade (Recap)

RHOA PHillipines2

I can’t wait for us to get to know Claudia Jordan tonight! First, Cynthia and Porsha talk about Cynthia’s party. Porsha throws shade right of the bat toward Cynthia saying she started out as little Nene and now she is baby Kenya. Porsha is so funny in these scenes talking  about Claudia. This is before she knew that Claudia was there to snatch her peach. Phaedra finally shows up to the pow wow with Porsha and Kandi. BTW, they are at some high-end bar in Atlanta and Phaedra and Porsha are dressed to the nines and Phaedra is in yoga pants and a tank top. Phaedra asks how Cynthia’s party was because she missed it. Nope, she was tipped off and kept right on driving after arriving at Bar One. Anyway, Kandi tells the story. Kandi tells Phaedra (and that other one)about Apollo lying about everything related to Kenya.

Phaedra acts SHOCKED! Shocked I tell you! She was 8 months pregnant at the time Apollo was telling her this and it just added to the stress. Now this puts her under more stress. Wow, Phaedra admits that she owes Kenya an apology. She doesn’t think Kenya is Mother Teresa but she is woman enough to have a conversation and apologize and move forward. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kandi says, “Not just you all of us.” The editing is shady and it looks like Porsha is agreeing. In her talking head Kandi says she feels bad for Kenya. Phaedra says, “Oh that’s terrible. Poor Kenya.”

Meanwhile Kenya and her aunt are at Lush Life landscaping. It’s a really pretty setting. Her aunt suggests she consider a cactus since she has a tendency to kill flowers. Her aunt is suggesting Kenya find forgiveness for all of them, especially Porsha. They flash to a montage of Porsha and Nene and Phaedra saying vile things about Kenya at the last reunion. Kenya is struggling to forgive. She says she would be willing if they were willing to reach out to her first. Her Aunt tries to coax Kenya to be the bigger person. Kenya dramatically spouts off some Shakespeare (Iago from Othello if you are interested.)   Continue reading

Phaedra Parks Was “Unmoved” By The News Apollo Lied

Suddenly, this seems like a plea to Apollo's cell mate.

Suddenly, this seems like a plea to Apollo’s cell mate.

Phaedra has written a Bravo blog! It seems she has eeked out some time for us despite her lengthy client list and constant court room appearances, book sales, video sales, and of course burying corpses of various species.  Hurray!  Only it isn’t a blog. It seems that Bravo has resorted to giving certain housewives a Q & A  format to actually encourage them to get something in each week. Writing a blog post is a difficult thing for some it would seem.

For the most part the blog is about her tirelessly role as a mother to two young boys. Phaedra really does do it all! With help from her mother, a fulltime nanny and a small tribe of babysitters, Phaedra manages to be “Super Mom.” I’ve spared you most of that.  Because the important part is what she has to say about Kenya. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta: No Moore Apollogies (Recap)

RHOA Apollo and sons

It’s time for RHOA, or more accurately, the Phaedra and Apollo show. Phaedra manages to get free dental care for the boys by filming them going to see the dentist.  There were ten tons of promotional shots. That should keep them in dental care until their adult years. I found it very strange that the street numbers were blurred on the building. Why? They showed name of the practice a dozen times, and had every item they sell displayed behind the reception desk, but for some reason someone went to the trouble to blur the street address?  Also is Phaedra married to that giant bagel on her head? How much does that thing weigh? It makes my head hot just looking at her wearing that all over the place in Atlanta in the summer. Why does Apollo looked shocked to see Phaedra and Ayden? Clearly he knew about the appointment which is why he was there. #BadActing  Ayden was priceless with the whole, “Daddy? Oh boy….” reaction.

Did we really need the entire family in the room for his cleaning? How many times is Phaedra going to point out to us that her focus is on parenting? Pretty much everything she says, you may presume the opposite. Phaedra has TWO fulltime people to watch the boys. One, an overnight nanny lives in the house. The other, a baby sitter is there all day when the boys are awake. Phaedra’s mother is there a lot too and keeps the kids when she goes on “book tours” for months at a time. According to Angela Stanton, who becomes more believable by the day, Phaedra never liked her kids and was very standoffish around her kids. Even in Phaedra’s first bizarre deposition, she commented on Angela “always being pregnant” as if that were a bad thing. But now, suddenly, Phaedra would have us believe she is all about parenting. I’m not buying it.

Cynthia is excited for the release of her Ebony edition. She also wants us to know she um, “has her groove back” so to speak. Cynthia’s spread is beautiful but in one shot it looks like she is missing an arm. I’m just saying. Peter and Cynthia plan the Ebony party.  Nene and Porsha are not invited. Continue reading

Are Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks Still BFF’s?

RHOA On Their Overseas Trip

RHOA On Their Overseas Trip

UPDATE: It seems I was right. My tweeps are reporting that Phaedra is no longer following Kandi.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta went on two trips this season and posted a lot of Instagram pictures. Of course I went over them several times looking for “clues” and googling images of yellow bathtubs trying to locate the hotel (shut up, you know you want to know first!) and looking at body language. It was clear that my sources were correct and the group is deeply divided. Team Pretty, Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia and Demetria are a solid foursome filmed together and Nene is with Porsha and Phaedra. Both Porsha and Phaedra were easy for Nene to pick up as minions. Porsha because she is a good four standard deviations below the mean on the IQ bell curve, and Phaedra because she has been extremely abusive to Kenya. Team Pretty has known all along that Phaedra’s accusations were lies, but this season, on the next episode in fact, we will see Apollo attempt to right his wrongs before heading to the slammer. Apollo will come clean to Kenya and apologize. This sours team Pretty Team on Phaedra for good. So there is someone else Nene can scoop up to follow her now that Cynthia has burnt up the friendship contract and she’s had a falling out with most anyone else. And that leaves Kandi.

If you look at all of the pictures of the trips I can only find one where Kandi was standing next to Phaedra. On the 15 hour flight to Seoul, Kandi sat next to Cynthia. It seemed to me that these two were not nearly as close as they used to be. We saw on the premiere that the guys (Peter and Todd) were supporting Apollo in the relationship situation between Phaedra and Apollo. Todd had Apollo over and Kandi tried to state Phaedra’s case, but I get the feeling she eventually got tired of hearing Phaedra bitch at her because Todd was being nice to Apollo. It looks like based on these blogs that the two are not BFF’s anymore. What do you think? Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Season Seven Premier Recap

NeNe-Leakes-Photo-Shoot-For-Cirque-Zumanity

It’s time for the season premier! We have no new photos, but we have new taglines!

Nene: Why be so nasty and so rude, when I can be so fierce and so successful?
Kandi: I’m not about the drama, don’t start none, won’t be none.
Cynthia: Life is about choices, and I choose Cynthia.
Phaedra: When it comes to my family? I’m the judge and the jury.
Kenya: People get exhausted trying to figure me out. And I just let them.

Okay that intro was a hot mess that looked like it was hobbled together by one-eyed interns. Where is Claudia’s peach? We were told Claudia would have a peach? Will that come later since she was filming as an FOH for so long? Why would they not give their highest rated show a decent intro? You can’t even recognize half of the for all the photoshopping and editing. I’m not even sure that is any hair we have ever seen on Cynthia on her head in the peach holding scene. So far this is a hot mess, a HOT MESS, I say. Did I say hot mess yet? Lord have mercy. Maybe Claudia takes Nene’s peach at the halfway mark? Wouldn’t that be a kick in Nene’s ass…?

We’re going to start right off with Nene in Las Vegas filming Circe du Soleil Porn Show, Zumanity. This was done before the real filming for the season began. And there is Gregg right in her wake as usual. Why is Nene putting a wigcap on over her wig? Continue reading

WWHL With Caroline Manzo: AKA RHONJ Part 1.5

WWHL CarolineFirst of all, who is this chick and why is she in Caroline’s chair? I hate the new “rule” (that is very flexible) about first time visitors sitting in the first chair. And yes, I know who she is, she needs to move out of that chair.

Andy brings up Gia’s girl group and they talk about whether it is in appropriate. Michelle doesn’t want to say and Caroline says it’s right at the cusp. We’ve been talking about it here A LOT with weave pulling and trash talking amongst ourselves.  Again, the fact that the argument is about whether or not it is in appropriate means it is in appropriate. But that is so two days ago.  Ain’t nobody got time for that right now, Andrew. It’s only a thirty minute show. Let’s get to the reunion!

Andy is basically making Caroline respond to the reunion as if she was on it. Caroline’s response is “awesome thanks!” He says Tre said some weird stuff tonight. He rolls a clip of Tre saying doesn’t miss Jac and also claiming in six season she has never hit anyone below the belt. Caroline says of course she hit below the belt. We all hit below the belt. Just admit that you hit below the belt. We saw it, there is no denying what we see. Sidenote: Michelle has no idea what is going on and for the rest of the show Caroline and Andy will probably talk over her as if she is not even there which is why, if she has to be there at all, she should not be in the first chair. No offense to Michelle but it’s not a good night for her to get any attention. This was a booking blunder. Continue reading

APOLLO NIDA RHOA @apollonida03  ·  2h 2 hours ago

It is time to release the silence! Fitness All The Way! Prepare for the Upcoming Year! in 2015!

Is he trying to say he is going to roll on Phaedra? Did he email someone his account info for them to post this? I need answers people. I’m pretty sure they can email, but I don’t think they can get on social media. Can they?

Phaedra Parks on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

It’s time for Phaedra’s appearance on The Ellen Show to talk about her divorce and other things. First can we talk about this thing around her neck? Is that black fringey mess part of the dress? or part of the necklace? It certainly is the focal point of my attention. It appears that it is part of the necklace. She is wearing a red satin  dress that looks like something a 12-year-old would wear to a Christmas party There is even a giant bow on the back. She brings Ellen a picnic basket full of “southern items” and a #FixItJesus t-shirt and of course her book. With the picnic basket she looks like Little Red Riding Hood. I can’t believe she was styled by Shun Melson.  That dress makes her look as big as a house.

Phaedra says she really wanted to come on Ellen’s show because she has seen Ellen do some tough interviews and handle them compassionately and gracefully. She thinks she could have a little southern belle in her if she wore some pearls and a little skirt. Ellen jokes that is what she has on under her clothes. Continue reading

Phaedra Parks to Appear on Ellen!?

Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.

Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.

UPDATE: IT’S OFFICIAL: Phaedra is listed on Ellen’s website as a guest with Heidi Klum! Waiting for hell to freeze over next…

Phaedra’s publicist has confirmed that Phaedra will film an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on October 14th that will air on October 15th. According to a statement, “Phaedra  will be very candid about what happened with Apollo, her life now and plans for the future.” Her publicist has indicated that WWHL had not approached her for an interview.

Phaedra will likely be about as candid and Teresa was on WWHL.  For someone who can’t give a deposition in her own case, where she is the plaintiff, I can’t imagine her doing anything but trying to hawk her book. I cannot for the life of me figure out why Ellen would book her. She rarely has any Reality TV personalities on the show. Frankly, none of this makes sense to me.  We shall see what happens.  If it happens, it should be interesting. Continue reading

Is Phaedra Parks Hooked on Pills?

RHOA Phaedra Face

I do not do too many blind items on this site, but I do enjoy reading them at Crazy Days and Nights. The guy that runs the site is an entertainment lawyer who seems to have an endless supply of sources with credible information. By the time he reveals his blinds, you find yourself saying, “Oh, that makes perfect sense now.” Today he revealed this blind he first published on February 26th.

Blind Items Revealed

February 26, 2014This Southeast based Housewife is popping pills almost constantly and rarely shows up for work and when she does show up just sleeps on the floor for an hour or two before leaving.

Phaedra Parks Update: Phortress by Phaedra?

Phaedra's house is white now.

Phaedra’s house is white now.

This post is another TamaraTattles.com EXCLUSIVE. Thanks to those who do not steal the story but instead use an excerpt and a clearly identified link to this post. Those who do not could suffer from any number of maladies from incontinence to toe fungus to congophilic angiopathy. Make a good choice fellow entertainment writers.

Let’s face it. The Real Housewives of ANYWHERE make terrible neighbors.  But the Real Housewives of Atlanta have taken it to an art form. Remember when Kim Zolciak was in that house she rented from Kendra Davis?  There was a time when Kim had security guards hanging out on her front lawn to keep Kendra and her husband, the landlords, away from her. When she moved she took most of the landscape with her (because she planted it, dammit!) and gave it away to her new neighbors in the surrounding condos!  Kenya Moore had landlord issues as well and of course both of those cases the cameras would invade the neighborhood and film all the drama. Hell, Kim had a huge wedding in her back yard and the cops were called. Sheree Whitfield had neighbors MOVE OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD over the massive over construction that never ends on the monstrosity of what may, one day, some how be, Chateau Sheree.  I’ve lost count of the years that has been going on.

Up until recently, Phaedra Parks has managed to get along with her neighbors fairly well. Then in April of 2013 Phaedra and Phamily moved into a nice quiet cul-de-sac. It’s off to itself, and not officially part of any subdivision. Just five very nice houses in a very convenient location. Then filming started. Last season, the black van that supposedly picked everyone up at Nene’s for the Savannah trip actually picked everyone up house to house. All of the “who was late to the pick-up time” was entirely fabricated. Neighbors say that bus was in the cul-de-sac filming Phaedra getting on the bus for two hours. Why? Who knows. But it was not really the housewives arrivals that were late it was the long drawn out filming of everyone getting on the bus. In fact that waiting scene was probably a reshoot afterward because by the time the bus actually left it was quite late, which is why they arrived in Savannah so late.

But last year’s filming was pretty tame at Phaedra’s. This year has not been. Between the filming crews and all the comings and goings and book tours, and side pieces and malfunctioning security alarms and police, the baby sitters, the nannies, the overnight nannies, the stylists, the make up people and on and on the neighborhood is not such a peaceful place anymore.

Peachless Porsha Comes Clean, And Much More RHOA Tea!

RHOA Porsha No Peach2

Oh look, Porsha has an announcement to make! You remember the announcement, the one I made here in May?  She even used the exact same wording stating on Instagram today, “No more peach for me, but I still love checking in with my girls #Blessed #SomethingMajor #JustHeretoSlay #TeamPorsha”  As I said again in June,  Porsha and Nene were not given full contracts on “Pick Up Day” at the end of season six.  Porsha was being retested and her contract held pending her court charges with Kenya.  Nene was being Nene and trying to dictate who she would and would not film with but it seems she reconsidered.

Speaking of Kenya, it looks like this season Phaedra tries to physically assault her with her pocket-book after the topic of Phaedra’s cheating on Apollo is brought up. According to the explosive trailer, Phaedra is accused of sleeping with “Some African Man Named Mr. Chocolate.”  Hmmm Mr. Chocolate, Mr. President? Interesting coincidence no? Especially since the streets have been talking all summer long.  Oh my!  Also they have a clip of Apollo storming through the house screaming at Phaedra about “taking everything from her.” which with a little help from TMZ it sounds like they are going to make look like it happened on the day Apollo didn’t show up for jail. Unfortunately, that did not happen that way.  In the clip you can see the Comcast van, just as I told you there to work on the security alarm, which is why the police showed up when Apollo was not even in the state. Continue reading
