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

Things I Should Have Blogged About, But Didn’t

Shahs of Sunset Season 3 2014 Final Episode

There were some minor things that happened last week that I didn’t get around to blogging, mostly because none of it by itself seemed to warrant a blog. I’m cleaning out my post suggestion emails today and I thought I would just list some of them here briefly.

Shah of Sunset premiere has been pulled indefinitely. The premiere was set for October 13th but the post production crew has walked out. A curious thing has been going on with reality show production workers.  Primarily in New York and California, production crews on reality TV are pushing to join the unions that normally represent scripted  television.  The whole reason reality shows became so popular was a writer’s strike by scripted writers many years ago. During the strike, networked hustled to find new things to put on the air and a variety of reality shows, game shows, and singing contests hit the airwaves. Production workers then began to work in reality based TV that was not unionized. Now that reality shows have script writers and production works long insane hours, they are not wanting to work as independent contractors anymore and to be covered like normal employees with medical benefits and sick days. Shahs is produced by a subsidiary of Ryan Seacrest Productions and they supposedly open to negotiations but nothing has happened yet so post production is walking the picket line.

Wendy Williams returns tomorrow.  She has promised to literally eat crow on the episode after promising that she would if Kim and Kanye lasted over 72 days. I know she is often wrong about her hot topics, but I still sort of miss her show when it is not on. Will you be watching? I’m hoping this helps me to get up earlier in the mornings and stop staying up all night. Continue reading

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

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.

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.

You Get A Car! And You Get A Car! And You Get A Car!

RHOA Todd Tucker Corvette

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

Real Housewives of Atlanta Tea, And Lots of It

Kenya Porsha Cynthia

One of the downsides of having your own website, is that it takes a lot of work and consumes all of your time. It keeps me from reading other blogs that I used to really enjoy, like StraightFromtheA. Michelle is a great source of RHOA tea because she is very active in the ATL social life and runs in the same circles as a few of the housewives. Phaedra in particular. Because of her friendliness with Phaedra, Atlien has been fairly mum on the unfortunate position that Phaedra is currently facing. She did however  post recently about a party to celebrate Cynthia’s spread in Ebony Magazine, that she attended.  She is also the source for the numerous reports you guys a have sent me (thanks!) about Phaedra “taking a leave of absence” from filming RHOA. If you had told me that the story was coming from Atlien I would have investigated sooner. I’ve drilled down all the tea.  Grab a snack and get ready for this because there is a lot to cover. And for me the Phaedra stuff is a mere side order.

I am continuing to research and am not sure where to start. First of all, the party was held on July 17th at Bar One to celebrate Cynthia Bailey’s Ebony Magazine spread. All of the former housewives were there except three.  According to Atlien, Phaedra was en route when she was tipped off that Apollo was there. She opted not to show up. It is interesting that production would not alert Phaedra to the fact that her soon to be ex husband would be at the event.

As you recall, I exclusively reported that the previous day, July 16th, Apollo, Phaedra and the boys were filming in Chastain Park. They arrived in separate cars, even the boys and the nanny had their own car. It sounded like a supervised visitation sort of thing to me.  I speculated that it would be the Phaedra and Apollo breakup scene. Perhaps she presented the divorce papers.  There have been reports of Phaedra filing for divorce this week. I found nothing on the website to substantiate that claim. However, it is obvious that will be happening. My spies in Phaedra’s neighborhood say they haven’t seen Apollo at the house in quite some time. She’s done with him. This is not news. Continue reading

Kandi’s Wedding: Mark My Words, Todd Will Regret This

Kandi's Wedding RHOA

Okay, it’s time for two long hours of Kandi’s wedding.  The Bravo Buffoonery continues with Bravo adding two minutes to the DVR in front of the show and two minutes behind. WTF?  We begin at the rehearsal dinner and none of the grooms or groomsmen are there. Kandi calls Todd and they argue on the phone while the dinner guests gossip. Kandi looks like a major fool. I’m not sure I can do two hours of this tomfoolery. Mama Joyce and Kandi speak their family language discussing the pre-nup. We need subtitles. Apollo tells Todd this is partly his fault.  I’ve said it many times Kandi had no business marrying today. She doesn’t understand that marriage is a partnership. If she doesn’t want to go into a business arrangement with Todd, she had no business marrying him. Marriage is a business deal. Many of Todd’s groomsmen tell Todd not to sign it.

Mama Joyce goes to Kandi’s dad to get him to tell Kandi not to get married without the pre-nup. Mama Joyce is gloating in her talking heads. Todd, you need to run! RUN NOW! Save yourself, Todd!  Todd’s mom says they need to due a post-nup and get this stuff straightened out. Todd tells the boys he can’t live without Kandi.  Yes you can, Todd. Yes.You.Can.

Todd goes over to the house to fix things with Kandi. Todd says if she fixes the 30 day thing and the will issue then they can move forward. Kandi agrees. Fun fact: Stephanie Casteel was one of Sheree’s lawyers that she used to set up her shell LLC.  She had to testify in court that Sheree had some sort of ownership of the Chateau. Stephanie is super nice. I hope she eventually got paid. But I doubt it. Allegedly.

Todd has a 17-year-old daughter? Is this news? I don’t recall knowing this info. Is that his only daughter? I thought he had one closer to Riley’s age. Oh! I think we all thought one of Riley’s play dates was his daughter once. That must be the source of my confusion.

The bridesmaids are getting ready. Tasia brought a back up dress because no one has been fitted by Reco and they still don’t have dresses. Kandi had programs for her wedding. This is a new thing, I reckon. I think my nephew had one at his wedding. I seem to recall the whole foot-washing thing being on there.

Kandi is prettier without make-up in my opinion. Continue reading

Countdown to Apollo Nida’s Trip To the Pokey!

Party like it's your birthday!

Party like it’s your birthday!

In just four days, if the Feds don’t postpone again, as they are want to do, Apollo will be rejoining his friends at the federal penitentiary. Sadly, Apollo and his beloved southern belle wife are not spending his final days as a free man together. Phaedra spent the beginning of last week in Cancun with Kandi and Todd celebrating Fantasia’s birthday on Monday and Shun Melson’s (Kim Biermann’s stylist) birthday on Wednesday. Todd seemed to be having the time of his life even though the did tweet that Kandi failed to mention it was a girl’s party. From the looks of this picture it seems the girls were able to round up some men. Continue reading

Kandi’s Wedding: Shut the Fuck Up About The Prenup!

Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker - 1After that USA match against Portugal, I really need a moment. But it’s time for more Atlanta nonsense. Can we just get this wedding done already?  When I heard that Kandi’s wedding was going to have a “Coming to America” theme, I thought she just named it poorly. I never for a moment thought anyone, even Kandi, would make a such a spectacle of a wedding to style it after a Blaxploitation movie. But apparently she is. I sure hope they had a simple private, meaningful ceremony in Mexico, when my source said they did.

We are three days out and Kandi is getting a hair consult and a manicure. Kandi still hasn’t given Todd the prenup, if you believe the storyline.  By the time Todd gets the prenup, it’s not something he needs to sign. If Kandi dies he gets nothing? If they divorce he has to be out in 30 days?  All the profits from joint predictions are Kandi’s? But Kandi gets half of all Todd’s earnings? This whole thing has to be storyline because no one draws up their prenup 2 days before the wedding. Kandi had been ranting about a prenup for months now. Why didn’t she have one drawn up back then? I’m not buying this at all.

I’m going to skip over all the personal family cemetery visits if you don’t mind.

Todd, it’s not a 360 you are thinking of, it’s a 180.  You’ve been hanging out with Apollo too much. Is Todd wearing light contacts in his talking heads?  Todd and his groomsmen are our for drinks and onion rangs. Today was National Onion Ring Day and I didn’t have even a whiff of an onion rang.

It’s time for dueling Bachelor and Bachelorette parties.  Apollo is eye raping all the whores. These are some cheap looking hookers. Peter could scrounge up something better than that? Are these Apollo’s side pieces he got on TV? What is the story here? Continue reading
