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.
I have been goofing off all morning, er… um….afternoon, and watching Tyrant and catching up on Twitter and I came across a post on Reality Tea about Kandi buying Todd a Corvette for his birthday! That post reminded me of something that Source told me during our last chat. It seems there is a lot of car shopping happening in Atlanta.
Not only did Kandi buy Todd a Corvette, retail value between $50-65K, another Real Housewife of Atlanta has been car shopping for her man and herself. Continue reading
Remember that time that Kim Kardashian got this hideous monstrosity for a Christmas gift from Kanye? It was so horrific I actually broke my own no more Kardashian posts on this blog rule? Do you remember? Or have you blocked it from your mind only to have me bring it up again?
Because Nene now has her own monstrosity. And she made it herself. Click through to view. If you dare. Continue reading
I am sort of looking forward to this honestly. Let’s hope it doesn’t let me down. The guys all arrive at Bar One and everyone heads to the bar. Apollo asks for water. Peter, fool that he is tries to get him to drink. I guess they guys don’t know on of Apollo’s conditions for being out on bail is no alcohol. Gregg wants chicken fingers! Peter asks Apollo why he is wearing sunglasses and at night inside a bar. He says that he got attacked last night by Phaedra who whooped him upside his head while he was sleeping . Apparently, Phaedra went in on Apollo accusing him of sleeping with Kenya. The guys bring up Apollo’s flirting with Kenya. Watching Kenya going up the steps. Side note: This is the first time I’ve ever seen Apollo in a shirt that was not plaid. Apollo says he is going to marriage counseling with her. This was filmed a LONG time ago. After he was arrested but possibly before the reunion.
Apollo says their marriage has never been a partnership. Apollo says there is no foundation to the marriage. There is no communication. It’s like he doesn’t exist. Gregg explains that Phaedra was embarrassed by the flirtation on both sides between Kenya and Apollo. Apollo really doesn’t get it. That’s the bottom line. The flirtation began with APOLLO in Anguilla right in front of Phaedra. Yes, Kenya should have squashed it, but Phaedra’s full on character assassination of Kenya in public was over the top. Her private dealings with Apollo were obviously not strong enough to get him to stop what he was doing. Continue reading
So Far in Mexico, the only shade Nene is throwing is from her sombero!
These shows are always boring so I am not particularly excited by this episode. That said, production sure did seem to enjoy calling out Nene on her lies with unseen footage on the reunion, so they may surprise us with something interesting. Meanwhile, my new DVR refuses to record RHOA. I can’t say that I blame it.
Oh really Andrew, we are going to talk about Nene and her being such a good friend? Andy asks what happened to all the furniture that Kenya gave (loaned?) Nene when she was in LA. Nene immediately starts saying it was just a bunch of crap. Apparently, Kenya sold her a TV and some other items. Who cares? Next they roll tape of Nene and Kenya getting along and Kenya talking about her boyfriend. Kenya’s in love and her man cannot leave Nigeria, so it’s a problem. Apparently, the sex is great. We find out her man is in his 30s.
Kandi has been a good friend and a mentor to Porsha. They show a package about the two girls. OMG, Rickey Smiley let Porsha try to do the news on the air on his radio show. The girl cannot read, y’all. How is she supposed to report the news? Porsha is the Sonja Morgan of RHOA, she has all of these imaginary businesses she is going to get going very soon. Porsha and Kandi sing a little bit of His Eye is On the Sparrow, and I gotta say, Porsha sounded good especially with no music and no autotune. Continue reading

Oh My! That Bullhorn is soo scary and threatening! Must use fistisses!
Andy starts by saying that both Nene and Kenya are six feet tall outspoken women who are used to running the show. It was the battle of the Titans this season and neither wanted to give up the crown. Nene sure does like to talk about what a good friend she WAS to people. She WAS a good friend to Marlo. She WAS a good friend to Cynthia. She WAS a good friend to Kim. She WAS a good friend to Dwight. She WAS a good friend that broke one tryna build Neverland. She seems to blame Kenya for her blow up with Marlo at the Bailey Bowl. Kenya had the nerve to keep bringing Marlo around when she did not want to speak to Marlo. None of the other girls wanted to be around Marlo except Kenya. Hmmmm, maybe because Marlo has mugshots for assaulting some woman? You know, just like Porsha does now.
Kenya says the real issue is that Nene wants to control everyone around her. She wanted to control Marlo and Cynthia. She is nothing but a dictator. Kenya reads a text from Nene to Marlo that said that once Marlo decided to film with Kenya, then that is your choice and that is where you need to stay. Kenya says she also pulled Cynthia into the situation having Cynthia be on a three way phone conversation with Nene and Marlo where Nene again told Marlo not to film with Kenya. Wow. Nene is terrified Kenya is going to steal her shine. Nene says she should ask Cynthia why Nene and Marlo are not friends anymore. In her version, Kenya wants to be in the middle of it. Now, I agree that Kenya wants to be right in the middle of the pot twirling it up, but Nene you just admitted to two separate times that you told your friend Marlo to stay away from Kenya. Bye Felicia, indeed.
Cynthia says that the relationship with Nene and Marlo was strained before Kenya came along. Cynthia also says that if you are going to shoot with Kenya you can’t shoot with me. I just can’t understand why Nene thinks she gets to decide who people shoot with. Hell, one season they flew Kandi down to Miami to shoot with Nene because no one else wanted to shoot with her at all. Continue reading

Okay, the first fifteen minutes of the second part of reunion were so jam packed, they have their own post here. For the remainder of the reunion, I am going to try to just hit some of the highlights, or low lights as they will likely be. I just could not get over the defensiveness of the ring leaders of the attack on Kenya in the first part of the reunion and wanted to make sure I got it all down.
One thing for sure is that Andy is having a hard time getting back into a playful groove with the ladies on the reunion. He seems way more serious than he usually does on reunions.
Andy is going in on Phaedra! When we return from break he says to her, “That night both head doctor and dick surgeon were trending on Twitter, how did that make you feel?” Phaedra says “At the end of the day (drink) I know that that’s never been a rumor, so I knew that it wasn’t the truth. And I mean, what Kenya’s talking about (that would be the deposition taken in a room full of attorneys and Phaedra when testimony is given about Phaedra’s head doctor ways. See Link) I’m not even thinking about. ” Welp, Phaedra. It must be nice to have so many legal proceedings involving you and your husband going on and not even giving them a second thought.

Oh My! That Bullhorn is soo scary and threatening! Must use fistisses!
We arrive back at the reunion with Porsha ejected from the show and a definite line in the sand drawn between the left couch and the wrong couch. Andy is very clear in his defense of Kenya and his disdain for Porsha. Oh my how wrong this little plot of Nene’s and Phaedra’s has gone. They both will be wearing their stank faces for the rest of the reunion shoot. You never win when you play dirty ladies!
After explaining that violence will not be condoned under any circumstance, Andy asks Kenya what happened. Kenya says, ” Well, we were talking back and forth, um, all I know is she got up out of her seat and stood in front of me and I got up and she just lost control.” Continue reading

It’s time to watch what will likely be the most watched episode of any Real Housewives franchise ever. It’s part one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion where Porsha is about to lose her mind in a very short period of time.
Wow! Before we even get started Nene Leakes has her stank attitude going on. And Porsha and Kenya have some stank face happening too. The word is that there was some conspiring amongst the ladies to get Porsha to go after Kenya and it sure does look like something happened before the cameras began rolling.
Andy compliments Kenya on her dress and inquires about her scepter. Kenya explains it is something Queens carry. She is already grinning at Andy and asks if he would like to be knighted. Andy agrees to let Kenya “knight” him. This already has Phaedra rolling her eyes and pulling faces. Andy acknowledges Porsha’s ginormous fake titties. Continue reading

On last night’s RHOA finale, as well as WWHL, we were treated to a variety of versions of the Nene Leakes hospitalization story. At the time, I had a lot of questions, but Sunday night is my busiest blogger night and that is not the time to stop and do my research. So I did some this morning. Here are my thoughts on Nene’s hospitalization.
On November 18th, 2013 Nene was rushed to the hospital by Gregg. The scene we saw of them on the couch at their home last night chatting about her possibly needing to go to the hospital and Gregg trying to give her Alka Seltzer was all filmed after the season was done filming. None of that was real and was part of the possible cover story that Nene came up with to explain her hospitalization. At this point, we have no idea why Nene was really hospitalized, but the more she tries to tell the version of what happened she would like for us to believe, the more she screws it up. Continue reading
Why were there no first looks this week? Getting the first 8 minutes ahead of time really helps in the set up process! We begin the RHOA finale with Kandi rehearsing in her living room and she really sounds great. Todd and Kandi are worried about ticket sales. Kandi says that after the play, it’s time to get started planning the wedding. Kandi brings up the pre-nup again.
I like Kenya just fine but I just don’t get making a big ass production on TV over the death of her dog. I can see the crying scenes telling her cast mates about the passing, but not some road site funeral mess. And what the motherfuck is she wearing? Did her aunt just call the urn a urine. Where the hell are they? I just can’t with this. I didn’t watch Sonja burying her dog on camera this season, but personally, I can do without this. Just like the three episodes of slow death of Abby Lee Miller’s mom on Dance Moms. I don’t watch these shows for televised despair.
Ayden and Apollo made a cake to congratulate Phaedra on graduating from mortuary school. She wants to buy a crematorium. Sidenote: Ayden was sporting a large Band-Aid on his forehead. Continue reading
