Nene Leakes New Gig Will Be Spotting The Liars on To Tell The Truth?

RHOA Nene bri of frankenstien

 UPDATED!

I am currently sleeping with Big Brother. What I mean is I am up most every night until the last BB17 houseguest goes to bed because they have not one but TWO sociopaths this season and there is a potential for murder at any given moment. I can’t stop watching. So I have only been up for about an hour and I am trying to collect my thoughts on whatever the fuck Nene Leakes is doing. Because frankly,  I don’t get it. And my sources are equally confused it would seem.

Let’s talk about her new “prime time gig with a legend.”  Yesterday we were wondering if she knew what “prime time” meant and who she might consider a “legend.”  Today, TMZ is reporting that she will be a panelist on yet another rebirth of the 1950s game show To Tell The Truth to be aired on primetime on ABC at some future date. This will be important later.  For those younger than a billion years old,  To Tell The Truth is a game show where four panelists are presented with three people all claiming to be the same person. One is telling the truth and the other two are lying. The panelists each have a certain amount of time to think of intelligent questions on the fly to contestants two of whom are trying to lie. Then the panelists individually make their final guess about who is telling the truth. One of Betty White’s husband was one of the creators of the original show.  Betty White is “the legend” that Nene will be working with. So Nene is two for two with the primetime and legend clues. So far so good. Continue reading

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.

Three Tiny Cups of Tea: The Third is The Hottest

phaedrathatisamonster

I’m doing a bit of housekeeping with my source material this week. I get little bits of info that is interesting at the time but not really enough for a major post. So here are some dribs and drabs.  The last one is some very interesting information about RHOA season one salaries I found out recently.  We have bad weather rolling in and I might lost Internet/cable/power tonight. It’s not supposed to stop until Sunday. Also, I am trying to be as unplugged as possible this week for a little mental health break. I should be back to posting as usual soon. TBH, taking some unplugged time has helped me immensely.

From RHOA:

There was a time people were playing Maury with one of Phaedra’s kids and I got sent info on some of her previous (alleged) paramours. This was something I was sent about that.

Phaedra Parks ALLEGED lovers … Mayor of Atlanta  Kasim Reed ( Basically stopped reading after that one… my sources say she allegedly tried and failed but who knows ),  Mannie Fresh, rapper and producer. (believable, and actually had an Internet death hoax this month), Too Short (West Coast Rapper big time rapper in the day, but how often could they have encountered each other) , Chuck Smith  (confirmed on RHOA),  DJNabs (um lets not take him to Maury).  Source Rolling Out Circa 2013 Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: Here is the Tea on the “Younger Actress” Testing for RHOA, Drew, Sidora!

tea-for-life-2

This is a TamaraTattles exclusively sourced story. Please excerpt and link appropriately. I’ve heard that people who steal other people’s work often find themselves suffering from itchy, wet anuses that they can never scratch because the are also perpetually in public. Karma can sometimes be very swift when it comes to intellectual property theft. And I kind love going to court and have the miles to fly anywhere. Make the right choice.

I’ve been working to get you all the tea on who the “younger actress” was who is testing for RHOA with three other hopefuls.  As I told you here, there are four ladies currently testing for RHOA.  Kim Fields, Lena Chenier, a dancer named Tammy and now I know the name of the fourth person. It’s really not the best time to post this super hot tea, but Tamara’s tea comes when it comes and I am dying to hear what y’all think.

It’s Drew Sidora. And I think she will be GREAT! She’s another serious actress who will make Nene’s head explode. Drew looks like she does not play!

From Wikipedia,…Drew Sidora Jordan (born May 1, 1985), better known by her stage name Drew Sidora, is an American actress and singer known for her recurring role as Chantel in the Disney Channel Original Series That’s So Raven, also as Lucy Avila in the 2006 movie Step Up and starred as Tionne Watkins in the VH1 TLC biographical film CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. She is also known for portraying a fictionalized version of herself on the BET comedy-drama television series The Game. 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

Exclusive Tamara Tattles Tea on RHOA Season 8, And a New Chay Eday Video !

Carlos King, another "friend" of Nene's that is no longer.

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

Carlos King to Leave His Producer Position With RHOA

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

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Chasing Nay Nay

RHOA Kandi

Kandi

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.

Cynthia

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!

Nene

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

Real Housewives of Atlanta: From Zen to Sin

The ladies at The Farm

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.

Nene

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

Exclusive Tamara Tattles Tea on the RHOA Reunion 2015: Everyone Gets A Go With Porsha!

RHOA Andy Reunion

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

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Another Completely Fakeass Episode

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.

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
