Marlo, Glamping in Gucci
The RHOA are all done glamping and back home safely. So I feel comfortable revealing exactly where they went now. I didn’t want to be responsible for any crazies heading to the woods to find them. Here is what TamaraTattles Sources have revealed about their adventure. The RHOA went to Banning Mills. If you are one of my few Married At First Sight readers, this place is familiar to you. Last season, if you recall, instead of wasting money on a trip to a winery or someplace romantic, they sent David and Ashley to Banning Mills for one final couples building activity. It did not go well.
Bannings Mill is a whopping 45 minutes outside of Atlanta. It is most used as a corporate retreat and the focus is heavily on team building activities. The women did not do any tent camping but they did stay in the treehouse rooms. You can see those in the first picture here. They all crossed the long bridge to go to one treehouse room for the photo. The treehouse rooms are the nicest accommodations there, but they do sort of wiggle around and they are not in any way a luxury room. Bannings Mill is really pretty and great for hiking, but these ladies spent most of their time doing scary activities that rely on trusting their team.

As TamaraTattles.com first exclusively reported, The Real Housewives of Atlanta are on a camping trip.
I am fortunate enough to have people sending me photos of the camping trip. The interesting thing is their interpretations of what they have seen on snapchats. I’m not sure they are watching the same ones as there have been quite a few. One researcher says, “They were laughing and having fun. The tell is that Kenya is with Sheree and Marlo.” This I want to believe. The other was unsure who Kenya was hanging out with in the very beginning and is hoping that these three are together. I’ll keep you updated as more news rolls in.
Everyone reports that the trip seems to be going along in a very lighthearted way. However, it’s Kandi who is doing most of the narrating and Kandi is always upbeat and tries to stay out of the drama. But if you press her, like Porsha did recently, you are going to have a problem.
We also saw the ladies get off to what appeared to be a late start (shocking!) that began at least in part with a meeting at the Chateau Sheree construction site.
Before we move on to the rest of the photos, is that Kenya’s hand on Phaedra’s shoulder? Is she playing nice with the dark side???

As Tamara Tattles was the first and only site to exclusively report, the Real Housewives of Atlanta (and some unexpected friends) are on a camping trip this weekend. And it sure seems like it was quite the struggle to wrangle the ladies yesterday.
But first, Let’s start with Friday night, in the photo above you can see Kandi and Marlo at Kandi’s R&B showcase featuring her two groups that she has been producing, Glamour, and Next. There was another performer at this showcase named Hazel Renee. Hazel is a young woman from Detroit and she is also on the camping trip as Kenya’s plus one. Kenya is referring to her as “her sister.” Is she related? Is this a homegirl from Detroit type thing? Alas my friends, I don’t know everything. I do know that Kenya doesn’t have a sister and this young lady seems young enough to be her daughter. I love that Kenya is there supporting Kandi and the bond that I keep noticing throughout filming. Kenya and Kandi as friends is something we haven’t really seen before. Unlike all the folks screaming about having the same people on the seasons over and over, I can’t say I agree. We have new relationships sprinkled with some new faces this season and I have a good feeling about the upcoming season. That said, I’m always hopeful for things that seem impossible. Just yesterday I checked TJMaxx to see if maybe they got an excess lot of Hermès or Bvlgari perfume. I like to live in a place where anything could still happen in my life. Because otherwise, what’s the point. If we knew, with all certainty, that our lives were only going to be about endless shelves of Justin Beiber perfume at TJMaxx, we’d never get out of bed. Dare to dream with me, people. It’s going to be a great season!

Cynthia’s new view of the great outdoors might come in handy
Part the gallon of tea I over spilled here over the weekend, in a very long post with way too much information that was a bit disjointed as it was literally rolling in while I was trying to type on a completely different spot of tea, involved Cynthia Bailey having to bail on a job due to a change in filming plans for RHOA.
As I have mentioned several times before my access to information on filming is reliant on my ability to ask the right question at the right time. It is important for me to watch the social media of the ladies in order to know when and how to use my access to those sources who will answer my questions. In this case, the question I needed to ask was, “What is this mandatory all cast filming on Saturday?
Because it was the a holiday weekend and sources are not really open to being bothered during their limited downtime, I asked you guys first. We speculated about what could be happening (something with Nene?) or what we wish was happening (A Porsha Intevention?) while I waited for the right moment to ask someone who might know.
Since that time we’ve learned that it has nothing to do with Nene because she will not be on Season 9 at all. And we never were very optimistic about the likelihood of a Porsha intervention. But now I have all the tea….
Kandi, Porsha, Lena Filming yet another birthday party for Porsha on 7/16
It never fails that right before a long weekend I get an EXCLUSIVE drop of white hot tea and then everyone scatters and leaves Atlanta. Such was the case this weekend. Since many of you left me as well, I held on to things until you got back. In the meantime I have a few more details.
In the photo above it sure does look like Kandi Burruss was trying to play nice with the THOT with the anger issues this season. But I have exclusive information that those days are over.
Last week, RHOA had one of their all cast dinners at a local brewery/restaurant. Everyone was there. My exclusive Tamara Tattles sources tell me that “the cast” asked Porsha how her anger management classes were going. If you recall I was first to report that Porsha was sent to anger management by Bravo. It seemed at the time she only went to one class and it was filmed. After the third attack last season, her cast mates all asked production to kick her off the cast, but it seems they opted to just send her back into therapy.
Now I envisioned a smirking Kenya bringing this up at the dinner, despite my source simply saying “the cast” that was until I hear that it was Kandi and Porsha who nearly claim to blows in the restaurant. It was then that Porsha took off running! Which was smart because Kandi already said on the reunion she is not going to tolerate Porsha’s aggression. While Kenya took a passive approach refusing to engage in a Jerry Springer like brawl when Porsha attacked her on the reunion the previous year, Kandi made it very clear that would not be her response to Porsha.
You won’t believe what happened next…
Lisa Rinna was trying on dresses this week. It’s about time for filming the opening of RHOBH so many are guessing this is what she is wearing. This gold number was custom-made for her by Sergio Hudson. I kind of love it so I wanted to share it with you and get your thoughts.
Also, I know you guys keep telling me differently, but I have seen no signs that Eileen is filming with RHOBH. I have seen Rinna and Eileen on a hike recently that might have been filmed but I have not seen Eileen with any of the housewives other than Rinna which makes me think she is probably an FOH this season. Also, it’s almost time to select the season seven taglines. I was hoping you guys could offer some suggestions for the RHOBH!
When it comes to RHOA, Ex-housewife, Nene has been insanely busy. She has only been in Atlanta briefly where she was advising someone on a multilevel marketing scheme. They were trying to pull her into that. That is the last refuge of the broke. For her sake, she needs to walk away from that faster than a senior citizen at a time share presentation circa 1984. She has been spending a LOT of time in Miami. Enough to make me have wishful thoughts that they will resurrect RHOM with Nene on it. That is just my wishful thinking though, I loved that franchise. She recently hosted a party in LA for the owner of the Abbey. She has stand up gigs in NYC and Chicago this month. That’s a huge step after starting out in Charlotte, North Carolina. The woman is still hustling. Also, To Tell The Truth was picked up for another run to be aired next summer. No word if she has been asked to return, but I expect she will be. She had good chemistry with the other regulars from what I observed. Continue reading
