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

There was a lot of speculation today about Carlos King’s future with the Real Housewives of Atlanta as the producer. Carlos has always had the final say on RHOA production and editing. He tweeted some things about the finale like, “all good things must come to an end” that lead to rampant speculation that he was leaving the show.
I really didn’t pay it much attention until Nene Leakes mention “the executive producer” as someone who joined in with all the ladies on the show to try to take her down.
You will recall that I was told by inside sources that Nene was being phased out LAST season. She was incredibly difficult to work with according to production sources and making ridiculous demands about who she would, and would not film with. She was demanding that production revolve around her schedule. I was told last season that she would be losing her peach. Then I was told she wasn’t. Then I was told she was. All by the same sources. So for two years there has been a lot of turmoil between production and Nene and a lot of disrespectful remarks from Nene aimed at Andy Cohen who she seems to hold ultimate responsibility for her “bad edits.” Continue reading
Kandi has called in a stylist for a date with Todd. Normally, I would find this ridiculous, but this is Kandi we are talking about. Did you see what she wore in Manila? But this guy is NOT the stylist. He brings her some leopard crap. She needs to hire Shun Melson.
On the date he says he made the date because it is their therapy “homework.” And we are off to a bad start. Things continue to get worse. Todd asks her if she is ovulating. Kandi says she didn’t know if they would make it to their upcoming one year anniversary. And she answers his ovulation question by saying her period is about to start. Seriously. Sex toys, enemas and periods all in the first 20 minutes. Kandi asks if Todd still wants a baby. His show got a second season which is going to mean more time apart and the timing is bad. Kandi says they have an appointment with the fertility doctor. Todd wants to go to L.A. for a month and a half. Kandi says she doesn’t think they should go more than 2 weeks without seeing her. Todd wants Kandi to come to L.A. with him for the whole time.
So I was trying to get my work area set up to blog (AKA grabbing a snack, in this case literally popcorn) and I come in the room and I’m trying to figure out who this woman is Cynthia is talking to. It’s Noelle! When did she turn 35? Why is Cynthia asking Noelle who her date to Homecoming is as she is getting dressed to leave? This script makes no sense. Apparently, the script also includes Kenya coming over to help Cynthia parent her child. Why is Cynthia asking Kenya about the pilot when Cynthia is in it ? Shouldn’t she know? This whole scene is weird. Why is Kenya mentoring Cynthia’s kid how to walk? Oh wait, at least Cynthia pointed that out.
Cynthia and Peter chat about the trip. Cynthia is unhappy her butt is getting so big. It is looking bigger. Cynthia is trying to get Peter to help her with the Jamaican accent her character has on Life Twirls On.
The :40 mark out take was of Kenya acting in the show as a knife wielding bride. Cute!
Gregg takes Nene to Sardi’s. Nene thinks she is a real New Yorker. Brentt is having a good time playing hooky and hanging out in New York. Gregg points out that Brentt needs rules. Nene doesn’t seem to think so. Nene’s parenting track record leaves much to be desired. Continue reading

The ladies at The Farm
The ladies must move on from their Zen resort (The Farm) and move on to their next destination. Everyone is relaxed and getting along! They are heading back to Manila to stay at the Shangri la Makati Hotel in Manila. They are really putting on the dog for the housewives with half the staff greeting them a manager escorting them to penthouse level.
I was just going to ignore this part, and then there it was! Another shocking talking head look. It’s not even the wig that is so damn bad. It might be the eyebrows. It might be the eye makeup. The lipstick is God awful. The teeth are bigger and whiter. She looks like a drag queen but I can’t figure out what exactly makes it so shockingly bad other than…EVERYTHING. Especially the eyebrows.
THEY ARE GIVING NENE A MONTAGE OF HER MOMENTS ON RHOA! THIS IS A GREAT SIGN!
Here is a Nene link for you Nene lovers that want a TT version of the montage. Continue reading

אני בוכה לאנשים שלי
הלילה, עקרות בית האמיתית של אטלנטה הלכו למנילה.
זה היה פרק גדול באמת.
הייתי recapped את זה אבל היום הוא יום ראשון של הדקלים ואני fobidden כדי לקבל גישה לtechology בימים נוראים.
שלום להיות איתך בעונה זו של עדשים.
EXCLUSIVE! Tamara Tattles Tea on the Real Housewives of Atlanta 2015 Reunion! Please use excerpts and provide links to this source when quoting.
Y’all are terribly impatient when it comes to RHOA Reunion Tea! It takes me awhile to synthesize my information and get the best idea of what actually went down from the many voices who are dropping some hints. Some sources just love to make you ask every little detail and that is so tiring at this point that I can’t be bothered. I just going to go with who seems to have taken the worst beating this season. The good news is, the top three recipients of a good old RHOA read are all on Team Beast!
But first the seating situation. On the left couch, we have Kenya next to Andy, then Cynthia then Kandi, On the right couch we have Nene , Phaedra and then Claudia!
Later when Porsha came out, Claudia moved to the Team Pretty plus Kandi couch and Porsha sat with Team Beast.
Also, despite the Asian themed set, I was told that the filming was indeed at The Biltmore again. That does not look like The Biltmore to me, but… apparently, it is.
As for how the ladies looked, I heard great thing about everyone except Porsha who was dressed for her other job if you know what I mean. I’m told that Nene got it right for the reunion. I’m not sure how much faith we should have in that report but in the spirit of fairness I’m letting you know that reports are that Nene looked good. The usual “did she have some work done?” rumor went to Kandi. Waist training? New Boobs? Good Spanx? Whatever it was, she got good reviews as well. In fact, everyone was at their best except for the peachless one. Continue reading

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.
Oh God, I had somehow blocked out the last episode of this show and was sitting here wondering where we were going tonight. I completely forgot the TV shrink chasing Nene into the parking lot. I’m not sure who looks dumber, the shrink or Nene sashsaying away in her Pep Boys uniform. I think she probably just had to work a late shift doing some oil changes and stuff in her coveralls.
Thank you Kandi! That is just what I was saying. Why is this fool chasing after Nene? Let her go and the other girls can actually hash some issues out. By the way I love what Kandi is wearing for a change. This is something I would wear.
Nene thinks that the shrink should lose his license. This is so hysterical. Her reasoning is that a good counselor would not allow everyone to speak their truth about how Nene treats people. Nene sees this as “Gang Up on Nene Day!” Clearly she doesn’t understand that counseling is about understanding YOUR behavior in interpersonal relationships and working on yourself. In group or couples counseling it is about listening to how others perceive you. Nene get into her black Range Rover and rolls off.
Back in the session, Kenya points out that Nene does not have the tools to handle when more than one person comes at her, yet the rest of them have dealt with similar situations multiple times. Especially when they first come on the show.
Somehow this therapy session becomes all about Porsha and I can’t even deal with it. Continue reading

Here we are back for episode seventeen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is it me or does it seem a lot longer than that. I guess it is all of those Sundays off for awards shows and football games. I am so read for this season to be over.
We start with Phaedra bitching about having to drive all the way to Duluth to film with Porsha. That is Phaedra’s own damn fault. Since Nene and Phaedra will only film with each other and possibly each other, Phaedra is stuck driving out to the boondocks. It does seems like a long ride for Phaedra to do a recap of Phaedra’s meeting with Cynthia. Phaedra implies that CYNTHIA is a plus sized model. Read that again. Phaedra calls Cynthia fat. She also talks about Cynthia having fibroids and dry vagina. Phaedra calls the other women hyena and Satan’s spawn. Then Phaedra and Porsha “pray” over sme “food.”
Todd and Kandi are talking about Kandi’s grandfather Tituss Burruss. I guess this means she is related to Tituss Burress the Broadway actor from Georgia who is going to be on WWHL tonight. Interesting. Todd and Kandi try to do their therapy homework but it doesn’t go well.
Claudia goes over to visit Gary With The Tea from Dish Nation. Gary lives in a nice building downtown. In fact I think I know someone who lives there. Claudia goes to ask him about doing stand-up. Claudia is feeling a little stifled as the straight man, so to speak, on Dish Nation. She wants to be able to do a little unbridled comedy on her own at a comedy club. Later, Claudia goes to meet with Luenell to discuss her comedy routine. Continue reading
Kandi’s blog this week I one of the most interesting ones ever, at least to me. Remember just last month when we saw Phaedra show up at Kandi’s house for the Superbowl? We thought that was a sign they were reconciling. Kandi made a point of saying “even Phaedra” showed up. This was after much speculation that they were not close anymore. Well the big news is, Kandi didn’t really even know there was an issue with Phaedra until the “cancelling session.” That is if it ever even gets brought up during next week’s scripted session with the TV therapist before Nene storms off the set. Kandi was completely oblivious to Phaedra running around talking trash about her to Nene and Porsha.
Now that is some interesting tea. But that is not all.
Kandi’s Bravo Blog is in the Q & A format again this month. I actually prefer this format for her because it has her answer things she would probably not address in a freestyle format. Like this first question.
Bravotv.com: Did you find the marriage counseling helpful?
Kandi Burruss: No.
Um, care to expand on that answer, Kandi? Because this just reinforces what we all have been thinking about your relationship with Todd being less than blissful. I mean the expected storyline for you two newlyweds is lots of intimacy and trying to make babies. Plus family fun with the girls. Speaking of the girls we haven’t seen either girl lately. Did Todd’s daughter move out? Did you buy Riley a new house because she didn’t like her luxury suite in your house anymore? Continue reading
Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia at STK Atlanta
We start this episode of RHOA, refreshingly, with Team Pretty. Cynthia and Kenya go to see Claudia’s apartment now that she is fully moved in with all of her furniture. I read on one of her blogs that Cynthia had some issues with moving her furniture to Atlanta and several things were stolen. It looks to me like this apartment has been carefully staged by someone. *cough* production *cough* At any rate it’s really pretty and I love the building she is in with the views of downtown. Claudia fills the girls in on the Dish Nation party and her altercation with Porsha. Claudia gets teary-eyed telling the story. She says it reminds her of when she was in high school and she was picked on for being bi-racial.
Claudia is struggling with getting up before dawn to get to the morning show. Porsha’s attitude isn’t helping her morning routine. Claudia meets with Rickey Smiley about her struggles at work and Porsha. Rickey suggests someone be the bigger person and apologize. Rickey goes to get Porsha and brings her in. Porsha walks in with a jar of gummy bears in one of those fancy bags she is allegedly selling her vagina for. Porsha is acting like a 12-year-old. Rickey has the three of them hold hands and pray. Awkward.
Todd and Kandi talk about Kandi’s part that she says Todd got her in Second Chance Christmas. I saw that movie because I love all Christmas movies. I’m already counting down to November to start all over again. Kandi’s part was small and she seemed just like Kandi to me. But still it was fun to see her acting. Kandi and Todd are going to filming but Todd is staying for a week. Kandi says he is not really working but staying to party with his friends. Seriously. Why did these to even get married? And why are they “trying” to have a baby? Kandi’s house is really pretty.
Kandi comes back from her trip without Todd. She had a fight with Todd in LA about her asking people business questions. Todd wants her to ask him because he is in the business. Kandi says she and Todd aren’t really having sex unless she initiates it. They only have sex once a week. Kandi suspects Todd is cheating. Kandi tells Carmon that if she was advising herself about Todd, she would say that they either need counseling or plan to divorce!
Kenya is working on the script for Life Twirls On. She working on a dildo scene. I’m just not excited about this show if it’s going to be a dildo show. We get enough of that with Kandi.
Kenya working on casting her show. Cynthia comes in to audition wearing some crazy outfit that she thinks makes her look Jamaican like the part is written. It’s not giving me Jamaica. Cynthia’s make-up is hideous and so is her hair. They give her the part. Did Kenya just say that Leon has a part or that they have cast someone for Leon? Continue reading

This is how I feel about doing a blog tonight.
Gif by TKyle Realtytvgifs Tumblr
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not really feeling the blog lately. So tonight, I’m gonna let y’all write your own damn Real Housewives of Atlanta recaps. I’m not excited about the manufactured drama between Claudia and THOT over Kordell, or Kenya’s new show in the works with Roger Bobb, and I know the real story on Phaedra and Apollo. So knock yourselves out in comments.
I don’t think we get to the part where Apollo actually leaves for Kentucky tonight. Lord knows, they will drag that out forever. But if you missed what really went down in the days just before his self surrender date, of September 10th, click through for the blow by blow.
Team Pretty in Puerto Rico
I’m not sure if we actually even GET to Puerto Rico tonight based on the episode description. In case you missed my tea during filming, you can read it here. It’s interesting to note that at this time, Demetria was still holding a peach and Claudia was not. Perhaps the drama on this trip was the catalyst for Bravo changing their mind for the millionth time about who would be on the show.
Claudia goes to the foot doctor with Kenya. She has terrible feet from being an athlete and a model. I don’t need to see her feet. But the doctor was cute.
Kandi meets up with Demetria for lunch to apologize to her about the Roger Bobb thing at the sex party. Demetria sucks up to Kandi. Ah, and here is why. She wants to work with Kandi. Kandi is not interested. Kandi gives Demetria some very specific sex advice. #FixItJesus Continue reading
