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

Cynthia Bailey Shares Her Thoughts On Kenya Moore and Nene Leakes

Instagram

Instagram

So far I’ve only read the Real Housewives of Atlanta blogs by Cynthia and Nene and they both reminded me of Christmas letters. You know the ones I am talking about, right? It may be a southern tradition, but in our large family aunts and uncles and cousins don’t keep in touch as much as we probably should so every Christmas we get letter consisting of sometimes a dozen pages catching us up on a branch of the family tree. Little Johnny is now on the soccer team, Mother broke her hip in May, Susie got married, the husband was promoted etc. etc. Well these ladies two blogs are like this only they are explaining all of their accomplishments since the end of last season. Nene replaced a drag queen, she’s fashion designer, she producing television shows, starting jewelry line, appearing on Broadway, buying some sort of “glamor store”and on and on and on… Cynthia shared information about two of her modeling protégés and their accomplishments, updates on Bar One, and Peters coffee line, and the Charlotte sports bar and so on and so forth. At least, they got all of their promotion out of the way first.

Nene really didn’t have anywhere to go after telling us how wonderful she is; however, Cynthia did have some commentary on her fellow housewives. I’ve selected her thoughts on Kenya and Nene below. She saved some shade for the very end. It’s priceless. Especially coming for the super sweet Cynthia. I guess everyone has their breaking point. 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

Exclusive: Tiny Drop of RHOA Tea…

RHOA Korean Flight

Exclusive: Play nice. Please excerpt and clearly link. Ebola. Blah.  Blah. Blah.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Demetria McKinney, Porsha Williams, and Claudia Jordan have left the country.  That’s way too many housewives. SEVEN.  And Nene is not on the trip.  I’ve been working sources for a day or so now and the best I can determine is that the ladies are going to BALI. That is one long ass trip. It’s even longer from Atlanta than it is from Beverly Hills and you know how jetlagged they all were.

The ladies are on a new fangled AIRBUS 380 that is often referred to as a cruise ship in the sky. It’s a double decker plan that holds around 400 passengers. There are three classes. I think the ladies are in the midlevel class which is the complete top level of the plane. That section has a bar/lounge. On the lower deck there is a high end duty-free shop with perfume and make-up and booze. They left on Korean Air’s 15 hour flight to Seoul, Korea. That much I know for sure. That is the only place  Korean Air flies the Airbus 380 to from ATL. From there, I’m making an educated guess that Bali is their final destination. They would have an overnight layover and then fly the next 7 hour leg into Bali. You know how all the franchises end up going to the same places. Continue reading

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.
