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!
As if Kandi Burruss didn’t have enough going on in her life, now that she is expecting, she has resurrected her label Kandi Koated to sign two bands featuring young, up and coming singers. Last Wednesday night RHOA filmed a little mini concert performed by her two bands Loud and Glamour. Continue reading
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

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
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. Continue reading

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.
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
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

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

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
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
Carlos King, another “friend” of Nene’s that is no longer.
I have some curious news, that I have not been sharing about RHOA. My sources are saying that the reason pickup letters have not gone out yet is because the show has not yet been picked up for another season. This is not normal. I do not think it means that we have seen the last of RHOA, despite the lower ratings this season, the viewership is high enough to pick up another season. I mean Vanderpump Rules has been picked up and their ratings were not close to RHOA’s ratings even at RHOA’s lowest point. I believe the hold up is related to production. With Carlos King leaving, whatever the real circumstances are, there are going to be a lot of changes to production. They may even be considering another production company all together. There were a lot of audio problems with the reunion, Bravo may decide to make a fresh start.
So, they can’t send out the pickup letters until all of that is resolved. However, NBCu Cable Upfronts are this week. The parties start tonight and the days are jam packed until Thursday. Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. is when the NBCu Cable Upfronts will happen. I assume they will announce the RHOA being picked up then. Three RHOA will be in attendance, Kenya, Kandi, and Nene. It seems those are the only three invited to upfronts. This means Phaedra, Claudia, and Cynthia are… not secure in their spots. It’s clear Bravo wants to shake the show up much like they did RHONY a few seasons ago (and we all saw how well that turned out.) Continue reading

I didn’t realize until today that I missed the Blood Sweat & Heels episode last week because they stuck Watch What Happens Live on the end of the reunion messing up my DVR schedule. I already have two shows taping at 10. I hate when Andy tacks WWHL on where it doesn’t belong.
We start this episode of the reunion with Andy bringing up the challenge on the last reunion about donating $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Kenya did as she said she would and Nene did not. Nene says she will do it when she gets ready. Kenya says that really gets under her skin. She talks about being such a rich bitch with all of this extra money but she wants to be petty when it comes to a charitable donation for children. Nene says that she feels like Kenya is trying to “make a mockery out of it.” Nene questions, “Who puts their check on social media?” Um how about someone who was challenged to make the donation on national television. A better question is why would a person claim they were going to write a check for 20K and challenge a colleague to MATCH it, and then never write the check even after the colleague did match it? Nene goes on the “she is right!” trip she has been on for the whole reunion.
Next we discuss, “the new Cynthia.” Someone asks Phaedra about her vicious comments about Cynthia having bills and legal cases all over Atlanta and they ask why she would say such personal and vicious things. Phaedra says it is because Cynthia was spreading rumors about Mr. Chocolate at a time when she was most vulnerable Girl, please. It was your husband who was spreading those rumors and Cynthia brought them to you. She is not your BFF, she had no bond to you to prevent her from discussing what Apollo was saying with whomever she pleased. Cynthia says Phaedra could haves squashed it am moved on just like she did with Nene when she called her a “head doctor.” Phaedra forgave Nene because she apologized. LOL. Naw, Phaedra overlooked Nene’s jabs at her because they both needed some backup this season. Cynthia says she apologized in the Philippines and it was not accepted. Phaedra somehow goes on to say how many jobs she has. Again. Where are these jobs? Has anyone seen them? And how does she do them all when she is flying around to churches trying to sell her etiquette book and passing the love offering plate? Allegedly. Hell even her charities are suspect according to those in attendance at the last one. Continue reading
