Late Breaking EXCLUSIVE! Phaedra Has Left The House! I Repeat Phaedra Has Left The House!

RHOA Nene Birkin

EXCLUSIVE DISCLAIMER: Stealing this story will probably give your mother liver cancer and make your children retarded. DON’T DO IT! Just quote and link like a normal person. I’ve started giving head to local entertainment lawyers in my spare time to save in lawyers fees and they are all very happy with me.  I’m just saying. #HeadDoctor

Tomorrow in the ATL a new fancypants multi-use complex is having its grand opening. I don’t know if this is happening all over the country but here multi-use complexes are the next big thing. From Buckhead,  to a stones throw from my ghetto, high-end multi-use conglomerates have been booming for the past decade. The concept is live, work and socialize all in the same little neighborhood.  Most of them have high-end townhouses or apartments, a Whole Foods, and a variety of upscale restaurants and taverns in addition to some sort of shopping area, movie theater and other attractions. Atlantic Station was one of the most popular ones to date in the Atlanta area.

Tomorrow is the officially opening of the grand kahuna of such developments, Buckhead Atlanta. While the official opening is tomorrow, it seems they are allowing the felons by Bravo adjacent  in tonight for an invitation only black tie event to celebrate the housewives who have tons of money to hide/launder spend  at Hermes.  The invitations went out to their best Atlanta customers and clearly to the folks related to people they have a promotional deal with like, Bravo. Hermes and Fado Irish Pub have been there for a couple of years now, right in the middle of all of the construction. Tonight Hermes cut the ribbon on their new and improved location. The whole shebang will take many more months to roll out but RHOA and Love and Hip Hop Atlanta have done so much for  Christian Louboutin’s reputation he has decided to bless us with a local freestanding store.  I could barely type that with a straight face, but it is true that you will soon have a freestanding Loub store here in Atlanta.  Other high-end stores include Jimmy Choo, Alice+Olivia, and Akris.  Plus a bunch of overpriced restaurants I’ve never heard of because we need more of those. Not. Continue reading

So What’s Phaedra Up To Today?

RHOA Phaedra

Not much really. She’s laying low at home with the kids and the babysitter. The film crew showed up this afternoon for just over an hour. There was no drama, no security alarms, no wild stories unlike the last time. But hey, they haven’t been gone two hours yet, so there is still time. I suppose she had some talking heads to do for her jailbird husband storyline. I’m torn between a game of GUESS THE HEADLINE!  Perhaps something like Phaedra Refuses to Leave House! or maybe Phaedra Drowns Her Worries in Boxed Wine! Bravo Production Hold Intervention!

I find it odd that not one time has any housewife shown up to film at Phaedra’s house. Not even Kandi… Continue reading

The Mysterious Adventures of Apollo Nida

Apollo Nida Traveling While Out on Bail

Apollo is out on tour y’all!

In this post, I hope to separated the facts of the last 36 hours or so from the fiction that most sites are reporting. Let’s start with the things on the Atlanta end of the situation, as they are the easiest to confirm or debunk.

FACT: Apollo Nida has not been at his former residence with Phaedra since Sunday, September 7, 2014.

This is not even debatable. I have a source with eyes on the house all day long, every day. More than one actually. When your neighbor films a television show at their home, that gets the neighbors talking. When the man of the house makes news for  committing fraud and is sentenced to the federal penitentiary, you become on heightened alert counting the days until leaves.  For the past couple of months, I received daily updates, photos and commentary on the comings and goings at Chez Parks-Nida. I know the comings and goings of the nannies, Bravo film crew, make-up wardrobe people, Bravo cars provided for filming. It’s all documented. My source is golden. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey Walks Betsey Johnson Runway For New York Fashion Week

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

Apollo Nida Turns Himself In; Phaedra is Already Filming.

Oh Look! It seems I am the source for another major websites story again today! Even still the site manages to get things wrong.  Phaedra and Apollo filmed their last Real Housewives of Atlanta scenes last Thursday in a shoot that went late into the evening. The next day Phaedra took the boys and left.  Reports that Phaedra was concerned for her physical safety are not true. In the last few weeks Apollo and Phaedra have been living together without any major incidents and have entertained friends and family who came to say their goodbyes over Labor Day weekend. Apollo spent his last two days home alone without visitors washing his car and riding his brand new motorcycle. On Sunday Apollo, left and headed to Tennessee  where he spent the last two days of his freedom partying in Nashville. This morning he made the three-hour drive to Lexington and turned himself in.  Perhaps that site can make some corrections to its story.

I’d like to move away from the #FelonsByBravo in New Jersey and focus on one of our hometown #FelonsByBravo , Apollo Nida, who is getting ready to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday. I’ve been hold back some steaming hot tea.

For the past few weeks, I’ve had a source very close to the situation with Phaedra and Apollo updating me on what has been going on. I’ve been keeping this under my hat to avoid outing my source and causing them any inconvenience, but the time has come to let you in on what my exclusive Tamara Tattles spies have been reporting.

It’s been a long hot summer to say the least between Apollo and Phaedra Parks. For most of May and June, Apollo was doing his Farewell Tour through the south’s sleaziest small town strip clubs “promoting his brand.”  He was the cover boy for Sister2Sister magazine for the month of May and was going buck wild on twitter posting videos about “haters” who were “disparaging his brand.” He begged Twitter to “verify him” as a celebrity (they did not oblige.)  It was phenomenally hysterical. During that time, Phaedra went on her Southern Belle Prayer Cloth Tour so that she would be out-of-town whenever he was not.  It was War of the Roses and they went weeks without being home a the same time. Apollo spent some time in Philly. Phaedra spent some time with Kandi and Fantasia in Cancun for a big blowout girl’s trip to celebrate Fantasia’s birthday. The unhappy couple was anywhere away from home that they could be for months.

In July filming for RHOA began and things began to change.  Apollo stopped the self-aggrandizing tweets and began just asking people on Twitter for emotional support. On July 8th his “eight-year” sentence was handed down. Phaedra did not support him or go to court. He was salty and gave some more delusional interviews. He really doesn’t know when to shut up.  You can read about the actual amount of time Apollo will serve here. 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.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Filming Continues

TEA1

I am really trying to get to the next chapter of the Parks v Stanton Deposition, but I have lots of blog related duties that keep dragging me away. I am going to try to do it right after this post. In fact I opened this post to begin, but then some new RHOA filming tea rolled in. It’s not a lot, but it is sort of interesting.

First of all, things are going well for the most part. It seems that Demetria and Claudia are getting along well enough. Claudia is predicted to be the housewives whisperer this season.  She seems to be a calming force in the chaos which is just what we need. However, we have often seen certain housewives with reasonable social skills turn into “carrier pigeons” which can put them in the eye of a storm. Continue reading

Nene Leakes Blatantly Lies To Madame Noire…

Nene Leakes Insults Her Twitter Fans; Bravo Claims She is Divorced

This is not even a real post. It’s just the shit that flies out of Nene’s mouth is so hysterical. In an interview with Madame Noire Nene said, ” When I signed on for season 1, I signed on for a number of seasons.

Um, no, no you do not. You signed a one season deal for 10K for 8 episodes.  PERIOD.

We’re like actors, we sign for a number of seasons

You are nothing like actors. Bravo is the organ grinder. You are the dancing monkey with the tip cup in your hand. You know full well this is not true. How many seasons of Glee did you sign on for? Because it is still going and you are not on it. The future season are not even written until season are renewed, you idiot? Did you sign on for 20 seasons of The New Normal too?Nene Leakes Season 6 Episode 14

and they’re either going to pick you up at the end of the season or drop you, unless you finish out your contract.

Yes, and your pick up letter had MANY stipulations and your role is limited. And your contract is for ONE SEASON, so you finished yours.

You finish out your contract, then you’re out.  You become a free agent like Lebron James. So I have obligations. It’s not like I can just walk away from something like it’s just that easy, it’s really not.

Nene, you are not Lebron James. You do not have a multi year contract. You are not a professional ball player. You are  a mediawhore who acts a fool for our amusement on a season to season contract. And you are no longer amusing. Your time has come. That is why you have a limited contract where they allow you to make a um….graceful exit.

No one is buying the spin on how you are a bit player next season Nene. No one. I called your limited contract weeks ago.

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.

Have a Seat And Sip This RHOA Tea I Have For You

Real housewives of Atlanta

I have a fresh pot of EXCLUSIVELY SOURCED RHOA in dribs and drabs and the time has come to share it with you. Please use only excerpts and include a clear link to TamaraTattles.com when reporting on this story! Thanks for your professionalism!

In a nutshell, filming has been weird. I am not sure what it all means. Let’s start with Phaedra. Far from the rumored “leave of absence” Phaedra has been filming a good deal.  She’s filmed with Apollo in Chastain Park the day before she arrived late to Cynthia’s Essence party only to leave when she realized Apollo was there. That seems more and more like planned drama because contrary to before Apollo was sentenced and before RHOA filming began when the two love birds were all touring the country separately, they are currently both back in the house, and filmed a scene in the house yesterday. Phaedra has also filmed with Cynthia that I know of. Fun Phaedra fact: Phaedra lives in a Cul de Sac in a nice part of Atlanta proper. It’s not a gated community but it is rather secured and has a low crime rate if you take Apollo out of the equation. Last week,  Phaedra from some reason decided she wanted to fence the front yard and add an electronic keypad entry gate for the driveway. The neighbors were a bit perplexed by that decision. They were even more confused when the work crew failed to locate the water and electric before digging. And they hit the water line. To make matters worse, no one was home when this happened.
