Here Is The RHOA Tea From Kenya Moore’s Launch Party

RHOA Filming Watermarked

L-R Sheree, Cynthia, Mallory, Amiyah, Kenya, Marlo, Porsha,Phaedra, Kim Fields (and her husband)

TMZ keeps running these stories about who production has hired to “replace Nene.” First it was Kim Fields, then it was Sheree Whitfield, now it is Amiyah Scott. Well, one out of three ain’t bad. I told you that Kim Fields recently worked the kinks out of her contract and is now filming here:.

As for the usual game of musical peaches, Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi remain as close to sure things as we ever have at this point in the season. I’m told Kim Fields has officially signed on. All the other potentials have fallen by the wayside. So that leaves Phaedra, Porsha and even Cynthia’s sister Mallory to play hot potato for a peach. Andy seems to love Phaedra so she’s probably going to end up with one. Carlos loves Porsha so things are much improved for her.

At this point, barring any last minute indecision by production, the peaches go to Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi, Phaedra, Porsha and Kim.  I do not think there will be a seventh peach, but you never know.

What TMZ doesn’t seem to understand is that Sheree, Marlo, Mallory and Amiyah showing up to a taping doesn’t put them on the show as paid participants.  If I started a new post for every picture I saw, I would have been on the Kim Fields is out! bus.  Or Sheree is in!  bandwagon.  I actually know what is happening behind the scenes and it’s just not that simple.  Sheree, Marlo and Mallory are making day rate pay of about $1.500 or so depending on a few variables.  Amiyah probably just signed a release.  The only person Amiyah has followed on Twitter is Kenya and that is because she was at her event.

The only thing the photos tell me is that Phaedra and Porsha have seemingly secured their peaches as I predicted above.  With the upheaval in production this season, things are more precarious than ever.

Guess Who Came to Cynthia Bailey’s Eyewear Launch Party?

RHOA Sheree and Marlo

Last night Cynthia had a big launch party for her eyewear collection. And guess who showed up? Marlo Hampton and Sheree Whitfield.  It seems that we will be getting a glimpse of both of them.  I’ve been sent several pictures and I am not sure who owns them, but I am going to post the one above because it was sent to me on Twitter.

In other photos I’ve seen, Phaedra and Porsha were standing together with matching stank faces. It seems there is a lot of disharmony in this group.  My sources are reporting that Kim Field’s has officially signed on as a full time houswive, and yet, I saw no evidence of her at the party.  That doesn’t mean she was not there, but I didn’t see her in any photos.  You know me, I might not even recognize her.

I don’t think that Sheree and Marlo will be regularly seen on the show, and I would doubt either would be actual “friends of the housewives” (FOH).  Acutally, if Marlo and Kenya still get along she may have a better shot than Sheree.  Sheree has been selling her used shoes on Instagram lately, so I hope they paid her for this appearance since it seems she needs the money.

kandiburruss Late post from weds night. I invited my girls @phaedraparks @porsha4real @cynthiabailey10 & @thekenyamoore to a special performance of my groups @theband_loud & @officially_glamour. I also surprised them with my baby news! It was a great night!

Last Wednesday night RHOA filmed a little mini concert performed by  her two bands Loud and  Glamour. Continue reading

Exclusive RHOA Casting Tea: No More Team Pretty

RHOA Claudia and Demetria at Black and White

Here is the latest EXCLUSIVE TEA on the confusing RHOA Casting .

The new production team for RHOA does not seem to know what they want. Their tactics seem to be film a bunch of random stuff and figure it all out later.  But now they are going to be doing it without Claudia. Claudia appears to be out for good this time.  Claudia has opted to work her own booking (often with Demetria McKinney) and leave RHOA behind. Claudia has been making a lot of changes in her life and moving her career in a different direction. RHOA can’t seem to promise anyone anything at the moment and Claudia is not one to sit on the sidelines while other people get their shit together.

So Claudia and Demetria are in NYC doing their thing. I hope Claudia changes her mind, but my sources say that Claudia needs to work and she always seems to have some sort of event or photo shoot lined up.  Continue reading

New Frosty Cold SWEET TEA on RHOA Casting

RHOA Team Pretty

I was up all night watching Big Brother. Today it is 82 degrees inside my house and close to 100 outside. I feel like I am literally being cooked. It is too hot to think and too hot to post. This place has turned into some sort of cancer survivor thunderdome. It’s exhausting and I need a coffee enema just to deal with all the hostility.

So naturally, I get new RHOA tea. I’m sure y’all remember the last casting tea which sucked, and quite frankly did not make sense. The thought that Kenya was even in question was perplexing to me.  I swear, every year the production team seems to sit in a room with all the potential housewives’  photos and blindfold themselves before throwing darts to see who is in and who is out.  But there has never been a much confusion as there is this year. I blame Nene cutting off her nose to spite her face decisions.  There was supposed to be filming this week and….nothing happened. More meetings. More musical peaches. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE! RHOA Casting Tea Update

RHOA Kenya come for me

 

The following post is a TAMARATATTLES EXCLUSIVE and should not be reposted on any site in its entirety. Please quote with a link to this post and give appropriate credit if you wish to discuss it on your website.  I shall place a POX ON YOUR HOUSE AND THAT OF ALL OF YOUR FAMILIES if you fail to follow basic  Internet laws regarding the information below.

Okay, I have been getting info all weekend on RHOA casting which “officially” starts filming today. And I don’t like it one bit. I admit I post the tea faster when it is something I want to hear and try like hell to disprove it if it is something bad. This is bad. Like really bad.

The last RHOA casting scoop I had said that Nene, Kenya, Kandi and Cynthia were in and Claudia, Porsha, and Phaedra were on standby. Once Nene “left” I know we here at TamaraTattles were hoping that Claudia would come back. Well, that is not what I am hearing.

The thing about this very early casting tea is that things change all the time and nothing is set in stone. What I am hearing now is that the only people who seem completely safe are Kandi and Cynthia.  What about Kenya you ask? Because I have asked that to everyone I know, and it seems that Kenya and PHAEDRA  are in the same pot.  Producers are worried about both of them having enough storyline to be a full time housewife. They are both going to film and decisions will be made in a few weeks as to what to do with them.  I can’t imagine Kenya not coming back, ESPECIALLY with Nene gone, but this is the word on the street in both NYC and Atlanta.

Nene Leakes Tells People Magazine She Will Not Be Returning To RHOA

Nene Doesn't want to

 

So who buys a multimillion dollar house and then quits the job that is their primary source of income before the furniture is delivered? Nene Leakes would like for us to believe that it is her. It doesn’t make sense to me, but it is Nene we are talking about.  I have been frantically trying to get in touch with my sources. So it may take me a bit to get the whole story.

But let me explain a few things that have been going on in the background. As I told you on my exclusive on June 9th that other sites are apparently calling their exclusive today, there are a LOT of casting changes possible for RHOA Season 8. I have NOT confirmed Kim Fields or any of the other three women being tested, nor have I confirmed that Claudia Jordan, Phaedra Parks or Porsha Williams are definitely out.  I have confirmed that Nene, Kenya, Kandi and Cynthia were all offered contracts which I expected them to accept. Nene clearly did not sign hers yet. She may not like the terms. Or perhaps things with Gregg are not going as well as she likes to proclaim. Remember this season is supposed to be more focused on personal relationships.  Or perhaps with the new women supposedly testing so well, the new production team decided Nene’s salary was not worth what she brings to the show anymore and they could pick up the new women for less money.

I did not jump on the bandwagon confirming any housewives departure and stated that testing was still ongoing and anything could happen. Claudia, Phaedra and Porsha were certainly on the bubble based on the information leaked to me about the other four women who were being tested. Whatever happened with Nene puts all sorts of possibilities back into play.

UNLESS, this is a ploy by Nene for more money. If it is she is playing a very dangerous game. That house is going to be hard to cool without a Bravo check. And if she has pissed off Bravo and the Road Trip with Kim Biermann thing is off the table, she is well and truly fucked. Time will tell. I am working on it as we speak.

Ain’t Nobody Getting No Divorce Y’all ….YET.

So a couple nights ago I was up all night and the Peter Thomas video came out. I just looked for a link to give you and it looks like it was taken down. But you can see it in the video above. Everyone was making a big ass deal out of it and I really didn’t think it was a huge deal. I asked my late night Twitter BFF what he thought and he said it wasn’t anything. I was relieved not to have to post about it.

I should have know better. I am getting all of these crazy questions. Is Cynthia going to divorce Peter? No. Is she pissed? Yes. But if you watch the above video, she is mostly pissed that it was videoed. People are so quick to find problems in other people’s marriage. Peter is a chauvinist! Cynthia has no backbone! Just because people have a relationship that does not fit into what you think it should be doesn’t mean it should not be allowed to exist. Peter is a bit of a chauvinist. Rumors of his cheating are everywhere. Including HERE. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: Porsha Williams Is Bragging About Getting Her Peach Back, But Did She?

Now I understand how Kenya hit a nerve!

Now I understand how Kenya hit a nerve!

Exclusive Tamaratattles Tea:  Please quote and link professionally! Do you want Syphillis? No. No. You. Do. Not.

Word on the curb is Porsha was bragging about getting a “late” letter saying she has her peach back last night. I think she is lying. I’ve gotten a few emails saying that Porsha swears she has a peach. This is NOT what my sources are saying. I mean some of  my sources say she is bragging about having her peach, but this is NOT what I am hearing from THE SOURCE.

Maybe she is getting her information from the underground railroad? Somebody is WRONG. It’s either me or Porsha. I think she is lying. AGAIN. But I thought you would want to know what Porsha is saying. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE! Piping Hot Season Eight RHOA Casting Tea

TEA1

This post is exclusively sourced by TamaraTattles.com please do not use this exclusive in its entirety. Excerpts with a clearly visible link to TamaraTattles.com is requested. Failure to quote and link properly will lead to immediate contraction of genital warts. Note to Radar Online  and other nefarious sites, rewriting this post as something that YOU have acquired from an anonymous source will be responded to with every and all possible legal action.

As you know Tamaratattles.com has been bothering RHOA sources for weeks regarding pickup letters. They went out VERY late this season as the new production team tries to figure out how to move forward. Production has been moving toward a more “housewifey” storyline for the upcoming season. Though Nene Leakes appears to come up with these ideas all on her own, what really happens according to my sources is she finds out the new plan and then goes on a talk show and says that is what she wants to happen. It’s quite ingenious actually.

So pickup letters were received yesterday. But this year, I don’t have complete information yet. This is what I know for sure. Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi and Nene are all receiving full contracts.  Phaedra, Claudia and Porsha can be neither confirmed or denied at this point. My sources say that are all three unlikely to return. However, there may still be hope for Claudia fans. Claudia has been spotted with a new man so perhaps a new relationship will attract the interest of production?  Just because she didn’t get a letter in the original batch, it doesn’t mean she is definitely out. Porsha is having her usual meltdown with production at this time. They tried to get rid of her two seasons ago and then the divorce happened. She has a history, according to tamaratattles.com  sources of pulling stunts to get them to reconsider and they have reconsider in the past two seasons. Will she be able to pull out another miracle? I’m a bit shocked by Phaedra’s departure. Her tactic for staying on the show is appealing to Andy through her children. Andy seems to fall for this every time. But now that Apollo is not part of the package, it seems Phaedra is not as appealing to Andy.  Phaedra’s lack of relationship to film may have done her in. Continue reading

Cynthia Gives Her Final Thoughts on The Reunion

 

BTW I think y'all were overly harsh on Cynthia's Reunion Look

BTW I think y’all were overly harsh on Cynthia’s Reunion Look

 

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind when NeNe walked off?

Cynthia Bailey: My natural reaction when NeNe broke down and walked off was to go to her and hug her. I had no idea how I would be received or what I would say to her, but my heart said go after her, and I did. NeNe and I were friends. Real friends that spent real time together outside of the show. Regardless of what the status of that friendship was during the reunion, I never want to see her hurt.

Clearly this sort of genuine kindness cannot be permitted to remain on the Real Ratchet Housewives of Atlanta. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 3 Recap: Mother’s Day Special

RHOA Reunion all

Okay, it’s finally time for part three of the RHOA. If you missed the other recaps you can catch them here.  Just in time for Mother’s Day, Nene is going to decide she has issues with her mother abandoning her for the first time.

Nene and Peter

Nene begins screaming at top of her lungs that she never flirted with Peter. SCREAMING her lies as if that would make them true. Peter says that he and Nene have similar personalities just like Kenya and Apollo do.  Um what? The Peter says that everyone owes Kenya an apology for calling her a whore for all these seasons.  Peter says that he a Nene did not flirt. Peter says that Porsha has a reckless mouth saying he is cheating on his wife. He says if he is going to cheat on his wife, he is going to go hit something big, like J-Lo not waitresses.  Oh well if I was Cynthia, I’d feel so much better. WTF. Peter?

Kandi and Todd

Time for more about Kandi’s marriage. Andy asks when the last time they had sex was. Two nights ago. Todd says the baby will happen soon.  Andy gives condolences about Todd’s mother, Sharon dying. He tells the story of how he found out. He sent a neighbor in to check on her and she had a stroke. Gregg spoke at Todd’s mother’s funeral. Why? And Peter also came for the funeral.  Nene tried everything she could to get to the funeral but she was in Cinderella at the time. Phaedra made a phone call to a funeral home for Todd.  Todd is teary-eyed.  Todd says that MJ’s TV apology was half-assed but she apologized more genuinely after Sharon died. Todd and Kandi fight about the prenup again.  Apparently, Todd doesn’t wear his wedding ring and he has more than one ring to match each watch. That’s weird. More talk about how Kandi puts too much of the relationship on TV.  Kandi says her boobs are bigger because she has gained weight and is taking steroids. Continue reading
