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.

Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan Judging Hot Men!

Instagram

Instagram

On Saturday, Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia faced a long grueling day of filming. Okay, it may have been a long day but it certainly doesn’t sound grueling to me.  With all of the various factions on the upcoming season with way too many “housewives” I’m going to refer to these three who seem to be quite happy filming together as Team Pretty.

So Team Pretty was tasked with spending their weekend with a ton of hunky guys because the Bailey Agency was hired by Ebony Magazine to find twenty hot men for the February 2015 issue of  Ebony. The ladies spent Saturday at the Sheraton hotel holding  an open casting call for successful men between the ages of 28 -50.  I guess Kenya got some digits. :) It sounds like a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon to me.

Bar One Atlanta To Close At the End of the Month!

Peter Thomas RHOA

Bar One in Atlanta has certainly had it’s shares of ups and downs over the years. If y’all think my commenting rules are harsh, you should check out Peter’s rules for sitting down in his establishment.  Then there was the constant drama with his landlord. It seems that Peter was making his rent payments to the landlord, but the landlord was not making his mortgage payments to the bank!  So the property went into foreclosure. Peter put an offer in to buy the property but it seems the offer was not accepted so now they have to move. Peter repeatedly tried to work something out with the owner before it got to that point but at least from Peter’s perspective the owner was uncooperative.  To make matters worse, after Peter decided to rent the space across the street from the same owner and move Cynthia’s Bailey agency into it along with another tenant issues arose again. This time there was some sort of zoning issue with the city. So according to Rodney Ho of the AJC,  Cynthia moved back into her original space that she still maintained back in November.

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

EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Atlanta Explode in Puerto Rico

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

ATTN: This is an independently sourced story EXCLUSIVE to Tamaratattles.com theft of this article will result in bad karma, Ebola virus, and syphilis. Wouldn’t it just be smarter to use a small portion with a clear link to this page as the source?

I managed to get in touch with Source who is in Puerto Rico at the moment.  All of the RHOA flew in yesterday for their girls trip for season seven. The weather may be hot but the fighting is even hotter. Already. On day one.

The premise of the trip is that new housewife, Demetria McKinney has a “concert” this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Demetria is an actress and singer and has recently released a single, 100, to coincide with her stint on RHOA.  That said, I can’t find any publicity online for where exactly Demetria is singing.  I admit I didn’t try that hard because it really doesn’t matter.

Peter Thomas and Kordell Stewart Open Sports One in Charlotte

RHOA SportsOne

Last night was the VIP opening of Sports One a joint business venture between Kordell Stewart and Peter Thomas in Charlotte, North Carolina. Peter Thomas is doing press this morning in Charlotte and has revealed a lot of information! Bravo camera shot for fifteen hours yesterday in Charlotte. Peter confirmed two new girls mentioning Claudia Jordan by name and said both new girls are extremely attractive. The other new girl is Demetria McKinney who I have mentioned before.

Peter was asked if there was any drama at filming and he said that the two new girls are both very beautiful and there was some “chemistry” there. He also said that Kordell “had not been seen by the screen for a while” and something went down with that. Peter talked about having to turn people away and said they can come back tonight and it will be more fun. He says taping in the bar is a bit boring because the TVs  can’t be on and there is no music so it’s a very quiet set. Peter has indicated that Bravo has come to him for a spin-off, but then he just explained a lot of taping issues with taping in a bar, so. I would not hold my breath.

In addition to Sports One,  Peter will also be opening a Bar One in Charlotte that is set to open on New Years Eve! Peter says he is already in Charlotte at least five days out of the month.

It sounds like Kenya, Cynthia, Claudia and Demetria were the only RHOA ladies in attendance. Cynthia was on one show with Peter and said she is going to be “spicier” this season. That sounds promising. One of my Charlotte spies spotted Gregg in Charlotte on Tuesday but did not see Nene. So we may see Gregg as well. Peter is really pushing for a househusbands spin-off.

With Porsha being on Dish Nation full time now I am suspecting we will only see her on a couple of episodes with Nene in the beginning of the season which should begin in November.

Have a Seat And Sip This RHOA Tea I Have For You

Real housewives of Atlanta

I have a fresh pot of EXCLUSIVELY SOURCED RHOA in dribs and drabs and the time has come to share it with you. Please use only excerpts and include a clear link to TamaraTattles.com when reporting on this story! Thanks for your professionalism!

In a nutshell, filming has been weird. I am not sure what it all means. Let’s start with Phaedra. Far from the rumored “leave of absence” Phaedra has been filming a good deal.  She’s filmed with Apollo in Chastain Park the day before she arrived late to Cynthia’s Essence party only to leave when she realized Apollo was there. That seems more and more like planned drama because contrary to before Apollo was sentenced and before RHOA filming began when the two love birds were all touring the country separately, they are currently both back in the house, and filmed a scene in the house yesterday. Phaedra has also filmed with Cynthia that I know of. Fun Phaedra fact: Phaedra lives in a Cul de Sac in a nice part of Atlanta proper. It’s not a gated community but it is rather secured and has a low crime rate if you take Apollo out of the equation. Last week,  Phaedra from some reason decided she wanted to fence the front yard and add an electronic keypad entry gate for the driveway. The neighbors were a bit perplexed by that decision. They were even more confused when the work crew failed to locate the water and electric before digging. And they hit the water line. To make matters worse, no one was home when this happened.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Tea, And Lots of It

Kenya Porsha Cynthia

One of the downsides of having your own website, is that it takes a lot of work and consumes all of your time. It keeps me from reading other blogs that I used to really enjoy, like StraightFromtheA. Michelle is a great source of RHOA tea because she is very active in the ATL social life and runs in the same circles as a few of the housewives. Phaedra in particular. Because of her friendliness with Phaedra, Atlien has been fairly mum on the unfortunate position that Phaedra is currently facing. She did however  post recently about a party to celebrate Cynthia’s spread in Ebony Magazine, that she attended.  She is also the source for the numerous reports you guys a have sent me (thanks!) about Phaedra “taking a leave of absence” from filming RHOA. If you had told me that the story was coming from Atlien I would have investigated sooner. I’ve drilled down all the tea.  Grab a snack and get ready for this because there is a lot to cover. And for me the Phaedra stuff is a mere side order.

I am continuing to research and am not sure where to start. First of all, the party was held on July 17th at Bar One to celebrate Cynthia Bailey’s Ebony Magazine spread. All of the former housewives were there except three.  According to Atlien, Phaedra was en route when she was tipped off that Apollo was there. She opted not to show up. It is interesting that production would not alert Phaedra to the fact that her soon to be ex husband would be at the event.

As you recall, I exclusively reported that the previous day, July 16th, Apollo, Phaedra and the boys were filming in Chastain Park. They arrived in separate cars, even the boys and the nanny had their own car. It sounded like a supervised visitation sort of thing to me.  I speculated that it would be the Phaedra and Apollo breakup scene. Perhaps she presented the divorce papers.  There have been reports of Phaedra filing for divorce this week. I found nothing on the website to substantiate that claim. However, it is obvious that will be happening. My spies in Phaedra’s neighborhood say they haven’t seen Apollo at the house in quite some time. She’s done with him. This is not news.

Kandi’s Wedding: Mark My Words, Todd Will Regret This

Kandi's Wedding RHOA

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

Peter Thomas and the Fate of Bar One

Peter Thomas RHOA

There still seems to be a lot of confusion about the foreclosure of Bar One.  Last season, there were many teasers about the foreclosure that indicated this was somehow a financial failing of Peter’s. However, that is simply not true.  The short version of the story is that like many restaurants, BarOne rents the space from the building owner. Peter has paid his rent every month to the owner. The owner however has been spending the rent on rims for his car and red bottom shoes or something rather than paid his mortgage on the building. Now the bank is trying to foreclose on the property.

During a recent interview by Uptown magazine, Peter was at BarOne waiting to meet with realtors and lawyers and the building owner to once again attempt to purchase the property.  Once again, the owner did not show up.  I would think that Peter could probably negotiate directly with the bank by now, but these things tend to become overly complicated with red tape, and the possibility that he will have to relocate BarOne still exists. And the owner of Cynthia’s new location for her agency  across the street is the same damn owner who doesn’t pay his bills. It’s a mess y’all. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta: Unseen Footage

Nene in Mexico

So Far in Mexico, the only shade Nene is throwing is from her sombero!

These shows are always boring so I am not particularly excited by this episode. That said, production sure did seem to enjoy calling out Nene on her lies with unseen footage on the reunion, so they may surprise us with something interesting. Meanwhile, my new DVR refuses to record RHOA. I can’t say that I blame it.

Oh really Andrew, we are going to talk about Nene and her being such a good friend? Andy asks what happened to all the furniture that Kenya gave (loaned?) Nene when she was in LA. Nene immediately starts saying it was just a bunch of crap. Apparently, Kenya sold her a TV and some other items. Who cares? Next they roll tape of Nene and Kenya getting along and Kenya talking about her boyfriend. Kenya’s in love and her man cannot leave Nigeria, so it’s a problem. Apparently, the sex is great. We find out her man is in his 30s.

Kandi has been a good friend and a mentor to Porsha. They show a package about the two girls. OMG, Rickey Smiley let Porsha try to do the news on the air on his radio show. The girl cannot read, y’all. How is she supposed to report the news? Porsha is the Sonja Morgan of RHOA, she has all of these imaginary businesses she is going to get going very soon.  Porsha and Kandi sing a little bit of His Eye is On the Sparrow, and I gotta say, Porsha sounded good especially with no music and no autotune.
