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

Claudia Jordan Spilling The Tea on The Breakfast Club

 

Claudia spilled a LOT of tea about RHOA on casting this morning on The Breakfast Club.  She lets the cat out of the bag that she broke up with the guy she was dating last week.  Which I found out about a few days ago from word on the street. Claudia has had a rough few weeks.

They talk about the Rickey Smiley show. She admits it was difficult working for Rickey Smiley. Apparently, Rickey banished Claudia from the breakfast table because he didn’t like the way she ate and made her eat alone.  Charlamagne  and the other host keep bringing up very specific rumors about how bad Rickey Smiley is and she is trying to tip toe around it.  It is obvious that Rickey was a jerk, and Claudia felt restricted by being stuck in a role that wasn’t a good fit. She wanted to be free to be funny and she wasn’t. She was told to just read the news. Continue reading

What The Hell is Going On With Claudia Jordan Now?

What are these two up to NOW?

What are these two up to NOW?

It’s been a couple of days since my sources told me that Claudia Jordan was DONE fucking with RHOA. I held on to the info because it seems every week someone is out and back in again. The “Claudia is out” tea held for a couple of days, so I finally shared it. No sooner did I do that, Claudia and Demetria are in NYC.  I knew that. What I did not know is that they were in NYC, among other reasons, to meet with True Entertainment, the company that oversees production of RHOA and other reality shows.

I had a feeling that the two beauties were working on a project together as they both seem to support each others events. I knew they were likely in NYC at least in part to meet with executives, perhaps to sell their idea for a show. 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

Tea From My Inbox on RHOA, Vanderpump Rules, RHOBH

TEA1

Good Morning! Well okay, it’s morning somewhere and one of those places is Tamara Land. Tamara Land is very near to I Don’t Give A Fuck Land, that glorious country ruled by Chay. We share similar philosophies and governing rules. Currently, it remains hot as fuck in Tamara Land, it’s 80 degrees in the majority of the land despite central air, and a cooler 75 in dark cave. In the cave days and nights cease to exist, one sleeps during the heat and rises with the cooler air. Responsibilities go ignored. Hiding under the sheets is a prime activity. But the mail still runs. And the tea continues to roll in. So here is the Daily Tea from Tamara Land.

RHOBH

I’ve received two bits of info about RHOBH real estate. First of all, Mohammed Hadid is now facing criminal charges (misdemeanor) over the building of his Beverly Hills megamansion.  For many, many, months Mohammed has been defying all construction laws and building whatever he wants regardless of all of the stop work orders. He’s starting to remind me of certain Chateau builder in Atlanta. He even has built an underground movie theater under the monstrosity.  He appealed all the violations the city has charges him with recently and lost. Now the city attorney is in charge of filing criminal charges against him. In true Chateau form, Mohammed had taken his name off the title and put it in a shell LLC with a Virginia attorney named as the Company executive. He should be in court next month.

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 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
