Okay, it’s time for two long hours of Kandi’s wedding. The Bravo Buffoonery continues with Bravo adding two minutes to the DVR in front of the show and two minutes behind. WTF? We begin at the rehearsal dinner and none of the grooms or groomsmen are there. Kandi calls Todd and they argue on the phone while the dinner guests gossip. Kandi looks like a major fool. I’m not sure I can do two hours of this tomfoolery. Mama Joyce and Kandi speak their family language discussing the pre-nup. We need subtitles. Apollo tells Todd this is partly his fault. I’ve said it many times Kandi had no business marrying today. She doesn’t understand that marriage is a partnership. If she doesn’t want to go into a business arrangement with Todd, she had no business marrying him. Marriage is a business deal. Many of Todd’s groomsmen tell Todd not to sign it.
Mama Joyce goes to Kandi’s dad to get him to tell Kandi not to get married without the pre-nup. Mama Joyce is gloating in her talking heads. Todd, you need to run! RUN NOW! Save yourself, Todd! Todd’s mom says they need to due a post-nup and get this stuff straightened out. Todd tells the boys he can’t live without Kandi. Yes you can, Todd. Yes.You.Can.
Todd goes over to the house to fix things with Kandi. Todd says if she fixes the 30 day thing and the will issue then they can move forward. Kandi agrees. Fun fact: Stephanie Casteel was one of Sheree’s lawyers that she used to set up her shell LLC. She had to testify in court that Sheree had some sort of ownership of the Chateau. Stephanie is super nice. I hope she eventually got paid. But I doubt it. Allegedly.
Todd has a 17-year-old daughter? Is this news? I don’t recall knowing this info. Is that his only daughter? I thought he had one closer to Riley’s age. Oh! I think we all thought one of Riley’s play dates was his daughter once. That must be the source of my confusion.
The bridesmaids are getting ready. Tasia brought a back up dress because no one has been fitted by Reco and they still don’t have dresses. Kandi had programs for her wedding. This is a new thing, I reckon. I think my nephew had one at his wedding. I seem to recall the whole foot-washing thing being on there.
Kandi is prettier without make-up in my opinion. Continue reading

Can I just say that most of my commenters are as crazy as me? I get a ton of email and it runs the gamut from silly to sad. This morning I awoke to yet another Chateau Sheree picture. I usually get one of those a month or so. Generally, they are interchangeable. That is, a big giant structure wrapped in Tyvek way past its expiration date. But last month, I got one showing some progress and today’s shows even more! So let’s check in.
First of all, the April pictorial update is all kinds of awesome. Dude looks like it’s his first time in Paris and he is posing in front of the Eiffel Tower! Look at me! I’m a Chateau Sheree! Continue reading
Chateau Sheree March 2014
What better than a Chateau Sheree update to celebrate April Fools Day! This is an actual real update that I just saved for today since today has the whole fool theme. Before we talk about current “progress” on the perpetually incomplete structure, let’s see how far it’s come over the years.
The story begins on December 30, 2010 when the property is purchased by Sheree’s mama, Thelma for $319,000. At this point there was a two story fixer upper already on the property. Eventually, there would be a partial demolition on the property. Why a partial? Who knows, but it certainly set the glacial pace of things to follow. The good news for the people who wait at the bus stop right there on the corner is that part of what was demolished was a bathroom wall leaving a toilet exposed to the street. So if they just had to go, during this time all they had to do was walk right up to that toilet! It was a service to the neighborhood really. Continue reading
TamaraTattles makes every effort to insure the publication of factual information. In a post made on August, 15, 2013 entitled Chateau Sheree is in Foreclosure we relied on a source who purported to be a licensed real estate agent for the detailed information that supported the contention that the property we refer to as “Chateau Sheree” is in foreclosure. Our source had detailed information about loan amounts and cited other documents available to real estate professionals that presumably inform them before the public records update of properties available for purchase. At the time of publication, we believed these documents to be true and accurate. Continue reading
While I have been offline the people who actually live in the neighborhood of Chateau Sheree have been furiously emailing me. If you Google Lake Forrest Drive ( I believe her home is at 5210 Lake Forrest Drive… I NEVER DISCLOSED IT UNTIL SHE PUT The address of MY SHACK ON THE INTERNET) but whatever. EVERYONE is mocking her while wishing she would get the fuck out of the neighborhood (which she has. She lives in an apt WAY WAY WAY out of the school district she was trying to stay in, Gee I hope they don’t find out.)
Anyway, the news is twofold. Not a damn thing has been done. However in her defense it has rained so much this summer that our gardens are literally rotting. IT HAS RAINED A FUCKING LOT.
This has caused mudslides on her road. So Lake Forrest is shut down for at least a year while they try to put in a retaining wall. Continue reading
August of 2012
Well boys and girls, it’s time again to check in on the goings on at Chateau Sheree. The infamous property purchased way back in December of 2010 has been the bane of the neighborhood for almost three years now. But I got an update today!(Now yesterday 7/8/13) Could it be? Will this be the Christmas that the whole family enjoys their spacious home? Click through to see all the changes from August 2012 to today. Continue reading
I’ve actually lost count of how many times I’ve gone to court with Sheree Whitfield over the last few months. Yesterday was either the fourth or the fifth time across two counties. And hopefully, that was the last time. I joke with my attorney of turning to a life of crime just because I like her. But if I am being honest, I hope that the only time I see her in the future is from the comfort of my couch watching her on HLN. It’s much less stressful and expensive that way.
Yesterday’s court appearance was bizarre. It did not help that I have forgotten to take my crazy pill the day before so my anxiety was through the roof, and I LEFT MY XANAX AT HOME. In Atlanta people that live inside the perimeter (ITP) perhaps rightly claim some sort of smug superiority to those of us poor degenerates who live beyond I-285. I live OTP because I don’t like driving downtown where every street is named Peachtree something and the streets are a one way maze that I am not city savvy enough to handle. Nervertheless, me in full on wide-eyed panic attack navigate the mean street to arrive at the courthouse on time.
My attorney Ashley Merchant was conferring with Sheree’s attorney du jour. It is always interesting to me see the opposing attorneys smiling and laughing before court and then getting up and going for the jugular once the hearing starts. Then going back to very cordial conversations. There was no sign of Sheree or Tierra and eventually her lawyer called them to see if they were going to show. Sheree did. Tierra did not. Because Tierra has a job, and a life, and has better things to do than spend days on end in court over nonsense. Continue reading
Andy Cohen is trying his hand at primetime tonight with a one-on-one interview with Nene Leakes under the umbrella of his Watch What Happens Live show. This will get great ratings and likely result in more Andy during primetime. Which could be a good thing if he has really good guests and let’s them talk about production.
One of the first things out of Nene’s mouth is, “Is this going to be girl talk?” Let me just stop here to say that there are all types of gay men. Almost every type is wonderful. Almost. But all of those types can be divided into two broad categories. Let’s call the first type the “Miss Lawrence” type. Lawrence refers to himself as Miss Lawrence and dabbles in cross-dressing, at least when it comes to footwear. The other type is the Anderson Cooper type, more masculine than feminine, educated, refined, successful. Andy is in the latter category. He wishes he was Anderson Cooper. He wants to be respected even when he is playing pin the boobies on the housewives with D list celebrities. You don’t refer to him as a girl. He was visibly offended by her remark (although she surely had no intention to do so) and it took him a minute to recover and resume the ass kissing opening dialogue he had prepared. Continue reading

So @Atlien and @FunkyDineva are waiting in an alcove off to the side for their attorneys and here come dumbass Sheree trying to take their pictures. I walked away from all this shit because Sheree was PISSED OFF because she lost in court AGAIN. Did I mention that Sheree took so many pictures that during mediation she stopped the show to ask for a charger for her blackberry and said it was so she could text her poor churren? SMDH. The man trying to make her act right was her attorney who she undermined at every turn in court. Y’all know that poor man ain’t even gonna get paid. Continue reading
First of all, to be fair, I should point out that there is a petition online now to have Sheree Whitfield return to RHOA. It seems she has an entire FOUR HUNDRED people interested in having her back. Surely, you guys who like Sheree can do better than that! Meanwhile, I am headed off to my THIRD court appearance with Sheree this week. On Thursday, I will once again get to witness Sheree showing up in one of the world’s worst weaves, sniveling to the court to protect her from all the evil bloggers that point out what a lunatic she is. She’s afraid of us, it seems because we like, Iyanla Vanzant and others point out she is making a fool of herself. In fact, she will make a fool of herself again on WWHL soon.
Each time I do this, I am reminded of how these frivolous lawsuits clog up the courts. The first time she did this, she sat outside the courtroom while people with actual cases came into the court and testified about domestic violence. I watched every case. They were serious issues. It was a pretty horrific thing to sit through. And all I could think while I was sitting there was that this woman had the gall to have a “victim’s advocate” who she lied to wasting tax dollars to make up physical descriptions of both me (who she had never seen before court) and my car(which she had also never seen). It was appalling. The judge, who found in my favor was a compassionate sort of man, and suggested a mutual stay away, to calm her irrational fears. My attorney had already offered that, and both before and during court, Sheree refused a mutual stay away. I eventually got one anyway. Continue reading
So everyday sometime in the afternoon I get all the press releases in my inbox from NBCu. There usually nothing particularly earth shattering in there, but today I gave it a quick once over for the WWHL schedule for May and whose name should be on it but Sheree Whitfield. That’s right boys and girls. Andy will be interviewing Sheree her She by Sheree line, wait, that never really happened. Maybe he will ask about Chateau Sheree …I doubt she will let the fact that she doesn’t own the place stop her from lying about it. I mean if you will perjure yourself in a courtroom, making up an interesting story to tell Andy after knocking back a few drinks should be easy. Continue reading
How did I not now that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was an educated, intelligent author? I have been enjoying watching him and other minor celebrities (he’s the only household name on the show, the others are…um..not) on Splash! There, I said it. For reasons I am not very clear on, Kareem has written a nearly 3000 word article for HuffPo about the real housewives. It’s interesting. But for today’s too long, didn’t read, Internet user, I will include some of my favorite parts below for those who don’t want to read the whole thing. And for the new folks that like reading such things I will direct you to another post I made, which is one of my favorites about Camille Paglia’s take on The Real Housewives franchises. After that story was brought to Bravo’s attention, Andy had Camille on WWHL. I’m predicting we see Karrem on WWHL soon.
EDIT: Kareem’s article is quite lengthy. It is not my intention to twist the intent of his writing to conform to my perceptions of it. I encourage you all to go to the link and read the entire thing and not rely on my extractions and commentary as representative of his opinion or overall assessment. I simply picked the most interesting points he made from my perspective to review. Your interpretations may vary widely.
