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

Kandi Burruss posted the above photo on her Instagram saying, ” Today is a wonderful start to an amazing year! I’m still partying & I will be partying all week but I just wanted to say thank you to every person that sent happy bday messages thru text, calls, post on social media. Thank you to everyone that sent flowers, cards, & gifts. Thank you to everyone who sent video messages for my bday video. Thanks to everyone who came to my bday dinner at my mom’s house & everyone who came to the surprise dinner after. & everybody who’s coming on our bday trip this weekend. I love y’all & Im embracing 40 to the fullest! I just turned 20 for a second time & im gonna make this next year my best year yet! thanks @carmoncambrice for coordinating the surprise dinner!”
Kandi Burruss just turned forty and has been celebrating all week. Todd threw a big party at an Atlanta club last night and gave her a diamond Rolex. There were no Real Housewives of Atlanta in attendance; however, Sheree Whitfield and Shamea Morton were able to clear their busy schedules to attend.
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.

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

The Booze Cruise
We start right off with Porsha and Shamea acting a fool on the Booze Cruise and Porsha’s first violent episode of the season caught on camera. Production opted not to show all of the long drawn out Porsha meltdown and how long it took her to calm down in the actual episode. Let’s hope that lost footage gets shown this time.
Oh but no. Shady Andy reads a nasty comment from a viewer asking CYNTHIA when she became such a thug. This explains a lot. I am hearing there is a lot of anger from both the crew that has to be present for all of Porsha’s violence and the cast over Andy and Bravo’s other executives nonchalant attitude regarding Porsha’s violence. Andy allowed Porsha to make excuses for her behavior and blame Cynthia and then read nasty comments to Cynthia as if they are not dealing with a violent THOT. Oh wait, we have made it EXACTLY three minutes into this episode without blaming KENYA MOORE. Some dumb cunt writes in that all three times there was violence on the show, Kenya was involved. The cunt satchel is talking about Pillow Talk, where Brandon was attacked by Apollo, Kandi went buck wild and everyone lost their shit, The reunion, when Kenya’s “involvement was getting attacked!” and Lake Lanier, where her involvement was asking an uninvited guest who was being ratchet to leave the event. What the fuck is wrong with these people and why does Andy delight in making EVERY SINGLE ALTERCATION about Kenya???? I can’t wait to see how Andy manages to blame KENYA for Porsha beating down some girl in the alley when my sources say it all went down before Kenya even arrived. I’m sure he will come up with something. Then Andy brings up that SIX YEARS AGO Sheree grabbed Kim Zolicak’s hair. He is desperate to defend the THOT in any way he possibly can. Now Andy gives Porsha plenty of time blame Cynthia again. This is just ridiculous. Then they play Porsha attacking Kenya again. Porsha says she takes responsibility for her actions but it is Cynthia’s fault.
Porsha says something about Kenya and a one eyed African trying to deflect from the fact that Kenya said she beat down her assistant at the finale filming. WTF?

DISCLAIMER: before you begin, know that I am, will always be, forever have been, signed, sealed, delivered #TeamTwirl. In the words of my wise mentor, “Don’t come for me, unless I send for you.”
She’s back!!! By she, I mean me. Did you miss me? Okay, don’t answer that. But really though, everyone needs to send major props and huge e-hugs to T.T. This shit ain’t easy.
I’d have to say, round one of this reunion, without a doubt, goes to Kim Fields. I’m giving her a pass on that frock she’s wearing – made from cheap go-to bridesmaids dress materials, complete with built in capri pants. The woman literally has bermuda shorts on, peeking through the slit of her dress. Shoutout, however, to her hair and makeup team. This recently adopted Marilyn style is giving me life (so stay out of my way!) Save Kim’s shorts, I think everyone looks stunning. I always think Atlanta has the best looks of any franchise during reunions.
We go through the usual introductions and hellos from Andy to all the ladies. He starts with Kenya, and immediately asks about the pregnancy rumors. She plays coy and says she can’t really tell anyone anything right now. Porsha is a new aunt, and just met her niece the day before the reunion. Cynthia compares her look tonight look to a flower…ready to get picked apart. Andy asks Kandi to stand up and do a twirl. He comments she looks like ‘Xscape Kandi.’ Her newborn baby Ace is doing great. Phaedra called Jesus on the main line and Cynthia recommends she send a backup text. Something tells me Phaedra would get the “New Phone. Who Dis?” response. Continue reading
