#RHOA Filming Update: Was Phaedra’s Phunction a Phlop?

RHOA Charity Event

 

Well, um everyone was there. And by everyone I mean the housewives plus potential housewives, Lena, Sheree, and Mallorie.  Lena is the one who had been wanting to get married on the show for a few seasons now.  It’s starting to look like this could be her year. Mallorie has been called in to film with Cynthia and support her through the divorce proceedings and her move to the new lake house. 

First, check out the step and repeat. First of all, what the hell is up with the housewives and their obsession with the step and repeat? It’s not a stand alone thing. It is a backdrop for a red carpet event that has sponsors. If there is no red carpet for celebrity arrivals, it’s just a dumb sign that makes for a crappy backdrop.  It makes even less sense in this setting since it’s just a big vinyl sign that says Phaedra multiple times and has a photo of her book.  There is absolutely nothing on the sign that mentions what the charity does.  Much like Phaedra’s Pfoundation Phlyers, it just looks like an advertisement for whatever Phaedra is selling.

Next, see that lady holding up the Phaedra shirt? I received several photos of the event and she was the sole person in each booth buying a product. From what I could tell, turnout was quite low.

EXCLUSIVE: I’ve Got Your Piping Hot #RHOA Casting & Filming Tea

RHOA Leilani

 

I’ve been sitting on so much EXCLUSIVE RHOA tea this week because my exclusive sources are finally coming through with so much information. So let me sort through it all in some sort of cohesive way because different information came from different sources and I need to weave everything together. Let’s start with the three women I know of who are testing. Then we will get into what is going on with each of the housewives so far, and pop some popcorn because it is juicy.

Leilani Collier

Leilani is a friend of Sheree Whitfield’s. She is a realtor and has two kids. She was filmed at Sheree’s son Kairo’s birthday party recently.    She was also at a made for TV birthday party for  Porsha over the weekend. Of the three women, she has done the least amount of testing. I think she will be an FOH or just be around in a few scenes. I don’t see her having a peach when Sheree doesn’t even have one yet. I’m not sure if she was at Kenya’s housewarming. This one probably has more dues to pay.

RHOA Casting Tea: The Pass The Peach Game Begins… And a Bit of RHOBH Tea on The Side

 

RHOA Fire

I really hate this time of year because everyone keeps asking me about RHOA. I have a good bit of information about WHERE THINGS STAND NOW. However, as I have learned over the season, things change as filming begins. This is a time where there is a lot of turmoil.  You really never know what is going to happen.

So here is what I know so far. First, I want to dispel a rumor. I got the majority of my information last Friday. I decided to hold on to it because I had some followup questions and it was the long weekend and it wasn’t possible to reach the best sources because people were out having their last hurrah.  Sometime later that Friday, someone somewhere apparently started a rumor that someone was fired.  That is not true.  No one was fired last Friday. In fact, I just got a hold of my original contact who basically said, ” Look, I told you what is happening. No one was fired.”

So that means I can go ahead with the information I already had. The short version of that is “Everyone is asked back except Kim who quit. “  Except it’s never that simple. What I was told last week was that everyone was  asked back but Phaedra and Porsha have “limited contracts.”  This is a term that was used before.  In last year’s clusterfuck with things not working out with Nene,  Phaedra and Porsha were also not guaranteed full time status last season. There was even a moment where KENYA didn’t seem to be on solid ground. So here we go again. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Secrets Revealed: “Skate on Outta Here Tootie!”

I am gonna miss you, girl

I am gonna miss you, girl

Okay something tells me that there will be few secrets revealed and I am in a hurry to get to Shahs of Sunset that premieres tonight. So I am going to blow through this with a quickness.

Phaedra and Porsha want to give Kim a makeover. Who in the holy hell would want two THOTs to give you a makeover? I love Kim Fields looks. Except for that crappy silver dress for the opening scenes. Kim is way prettier than the Ps. I know the I am the only one, but I am going to miss Kim Fields. There. It feels good to admit it.

Cynthia and Mallory talk about Cynthia’s crappy marriage.  ICYMI, CDAN posted a crazy blind about Peter hooking up with Porsha so I am looking at any hints by production that it happened because surely they would have caught wind of something like that, right? I think if it did happen it was early on in the SportsOne process and that is why Kordell is gone from that venture.  Anyway, people are blowing me up on Twitter like this is my blind, and it is not. I am torn to pieces about whether to believe it or not so I just had to bring it to my people. It would explain some things. I’m just saying.  Peter and Noelle got for a manipedi? Why? Noelle saw the video of Peter and that girl.  Noelle says he looked sloppy.  It’s clear that Peter lived in Charlotte except for filming. This is actually a good episode. Lots of new footage. Worth a watch.

I forgot about Porsha’s speech to high school kids. So disgusting. That principal got a lot of backlash. Who brings a THOT to a high school? She breaks into her preacher mode. But she is giving a speech about I dunno what. The audience shots are hysterical. She tries to have three steps and she LITERALLY cannot count to three.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 3: It’s Not About That Phaedra, It’s About Your Ways!

RHOA Reunion left couch
It’s time for the final episode of the reunion, and all I really care about is the footage of Porsha beating down a girl in a dark alley and Andy Cohen’s response to it.  I’m late to the party because I had a late breaking story about Vicki and Tamra rolling a dune buggy and going to the hospital. I’m glad they are both okay and even happier they are back to being besties.

So I am going to not give you a she said, she said of this whole mess in as much as I can stop myself. I am really just ready for this season to be over. Even though it was a bit shorter than usual it did NOT feel that way to me.

I hope someone has a gif of Nene dancing backstage up on the net already.

Porsha already looks nervous about her thug segment.

I LOVE Nene’s jumpsuit. It is very Cher and she rocks it well.  But the left side of her hair looks like it has been eaten by a lawn mower. It is very distracting to me. If I could just trim the left side of her head she would look fantastic.

Kandi excuses herself to pump. Why could she not do that off camera? Continue reading
