As you know Tamaratattles.com has been bothering RHOA sources for weeks regarding pickup letters. They went out VERY late this season as the new production team tries to figure out how to move forward. Production has been moving toward a more “housewifey” storyline for the upcoming season. Though Nene Leakes appears to come up with these ideas all on her own, what really happens according to my sources is she finds out the new plan and then goes on a talk show and says that is what she wants to happen. It’s quite ingenious actually.
So pickup letters were received yesterday. But this year, I don’t have complete information yet. This is what I know for sure. Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi and Nene are all receiving full contracts. Phaedra, Claudia and Porsha can be neither confirmed or denied at this point. My sources say that are all three unlikely to return. However, there may still be hope for Claudia fans. Claudia has been spotted with a new man so perhaps a new relationship will attract the interest of production? Just because she didn’t get a letter in the original batch, it doesn’t mean she is definitely out. Porsha is having her usual meltdown with production at this time. They tried to get rid of her two seasons ago and then the divorce happened. She has a history, according to tamaratattles.com sources of pulling stunts to get them to reconsider and they have reconsider in the past two seasons. Will she be able to pull out another miracle? I’m a bit shocked by Phaedra’s departure. Her tactic for staying on the show is appealing to Andy through her children. Andy seems to fall for this every time. But now that Apollo is not part of the package, it seems Phaedra is not as appealing to Andy. Phaedra’s lack of relationship to film may have done her in. Continue reading

After all of these years writing about attention whores, I get it. I get that there are a lot of people who want to be noticed, to be on TV, to be in the movies, or simply to just stare at their latest round of plastic surgery all day and post selfies on Instagram. I do not share any of these desires, but I can accept that there are a lot of narcissists out there. The goal for these people appears to be acceptance. They want the world to think they are attractive and likeable. They are willing to ignore any contradictory input about their appearance or behavior by labeling it as “jealousy” or “hating.” These people work hard to garner positive attention.
What I do not get is disgracing your entire family for money. I mean I get Farah Abraham, she doesn’t give two shits about her family so her porn career she feels is something that makes her attractive to men. Despite not being capable of interacting with men in any sort of normal way. The porn thing works for her. She likes the money and attention. I also get some of the women acting like fools for six figure incomes on Bravo shows. They also tend to block out the backlash and convince themselves they are stars. Good for them.
But this show, I do not understand. And entire family plus a couple of hangers-on willing to act like total fools to make a buck? Bratty kids, nasty old ladies and a dysfunctional couple but two ingrate employees all trying to see who can look like the biggest asshat on TV. Why? Kandi does not need the money. Are they all really that desperate to be noticed? This I do not get.
But let’s see what they do tonight. Continue reading
Banjo and I delayed our walk due to rain and me actually being productive in the house. I had completely forgotten about this show so I am off to a late start. I have a feeling this will not take long. Is this the second or third and final of this crap? I long for the days when we could just watch reality shows like idiots and believe most of what we see was real. Those days are long gone. And yet we still watch this crap. Despite Bravo insisting on calling this “Real Housewives of Atlanta” my DVR did not bother to record it, fortunately, or unfortunately, I noticed in time.
We start with Kandi defending the old lady gang to Todd. Todd wants to sit them down to hash things out. Kandi wants to ignore the situation.
Don Juan and Carmon continue to treat Matthew like ass. Matthew is actually working while Don Juan and Carmon drink and insult him repeatedly. I’m good with that though because now I don’t have to feel bad for Carmon when Mama Joyce comes for her later. She has built her own karma.
The next morning Mama Joyce helps Kandi make breakfast. There is an issue that there was not enough bacon. The dumbasses sent the dude who wanted “some kind of organic pumpkin cereal” for breakfast instead of doing the grocery shopping. I get this is all fake, but why would a family and two “friends/assistants” agree to go on a show to look like assholes. What would be wrong with showing what really happened?
Mama Joyce must have gotten to decided the fake roles. She is one of the better behaved on this show. There are two groups going skinning. The Old Lady Gang is going shopping with Matthew. The ski group is signing insurance releases to go skiing. I haven’t been in ages but I’ve never done that before. Is this a thing now? Kandi has never skied and is not overly excited about doing it. Continue reading
I am just now seeing this for the first time. I don’t think it is nearly as ratchet as y’all made it seem.
1) I TOTALLY agree with the aunts about their rooms. These are elderly women. They should have had the room that the daughters got in the first place. Who puts their teenagers in the room next door and tells their elderly aunts to hike out through the ice to their rooms up a flight of steps. WRONG.
2) Riley and Kaela can DO WHAT THE FUCK THEY ARE TOLD. They are on a free vacation. Plus, you can sneak BOYS into that room in the boondocks or sneak in booze or pot or porn or whatever. Who wants a twin room up under your parents when you can have your own fucking suite?
3) Don Juan and Carmon are douchebags who think they are on vacation. THEY ARE NOT. They are on a work trip. How dare they mock the white boy for WORKING as they cool their jets? Continue reading
Look if you think I was gonna stop watching this Mad Men marathon for this Kandi spin-off you must be crazy. Did you watch? Should I watch? Let me know.
Kandi shares her thoughts on the reunion, Nene, and Phaedra in a interesting video.
Click through to watch. Continue reading
Okay, it’s finally time for part three of the RHOA. If you missed the other recaps you can catch them here. Just in time for Mother’s Day, Nene is going to decide she has issues with her mother abandoning her for the first time.
Nene and Peter
Nene begins screaming at top of her lungs that she never flirted with Peter. SCREAMING her lies as if that would make them true. Peter says that he and Nene have similar personalities just like Kenya and Apollo do. Um what? The Peter says that everyone owes Kenya an apology for calling her a whore for all these seasons. Peter says that he a Nene did not flirt. Peter says that Porsha has a reckless mouth saying he is cheating on his wife. He says if he is going to cheat on his wife, he is going to go hit something big, like J-Lo not waitresses. Oh well if I was Cynthia, I’d feel so much better. WTF. Peter?
Kandi and Todd
Time for more about Kandi’s marriage. Andy asks when the last time they had sex was. Two nights ago. Todd says the baby will happen soon. Andy gives condolences about Todd’s mother, Sharon dying. He tells the story of how he found out. He sent a neighbor in to check on her and she had a stroke. Gregg spoke at Todd’s mother’s funeral. Why? And Peter also came for the funeral. Nene tried everything she could to get to the funeral but she was in Cinderella at the time. Phaedra made a phone call to a funeral home for Todd. Todd is teary-eyed. Todd says that MJ’s TV apology was half-assed but she apologized more genuinely after Sharon died. Todd and Kandi fight about the prenup again. Apparently, Todd doesn’t wear his wedding ring and he has more than one ring to match each watch. That’s weird. More talk about how Kandi puts too much of the relationship on TV. Kandi says her boobs are bigger because she has gained weight and is taking steroids. Continue reading
Carlos King, another “friend” of Nene’s that is no longer.
I have some curious news, that I have not been sharing about RHOA. My sources are saying that the reason pickup letters have not gone out yet is because the show has not yet been picked up for another season. This is not normal. I do not think it means that we have seen the last of RHOA, despite the lower ratings this season, the viewership is high enough to pick up another season. I mean Vanderpump Rules has been picked up and their ratings were not close to RHOA’s ratings even at RHOA’s lowest point. I believe the hold up is related to production. With Carlos King leaving, whatever the real circumstances are, there are going to be a lot of changes to production. They may even be considering another production company all together. There were a lot of audio problems with the reunion, Bravo may decide to make a fresh start.
So, they can’t send out the pickup letters until all of that is resolved. However, NBCu Cable Upfronts are this week. The parties start tonight and the days are jam packed until Thursday. Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. is when the NBCu Cable Upfronts will happen. I assume they will announce the RHOA being picked up then. Three RHOA will be in attendance, Kenya, Kandi, and Nene. It seems those are the only three invited to upfronts. This means Phaedra, Claudia, and Cynthia are… not secure in their spots. It’s clear Bravo wants to shake the show up much like they did RHONY a few seasons ago (and we all saw how well that turned out.) Continue reading

I didn’t realize until today that I missed the Blood Sweat & Heels episode last week because they stuck Watch What Happens Live on the end of the reunion messing up my DVR schedule. I already have two shows taping at 10. I hate when Andy tacks WWHL on where it doesn’t belong.
We start this episode of the reunion with Andy bringing up the challenge on the last reunion about donating $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Kenya did as she said she would and Nene did not. Nene says she will do it when she gets ready. Kenya says that really gets under her skin. She talks about being such a rich bitch with all of this extra money but she wants to be petty when it comes to a charitable donation for children. Nene says that she feels like Kenya is trying to “make a mockery out of it.” Nene questions, “Who puts their check on social media?” Um how about someone who was challenged to make the donation on national television. A better question is why would a person claim they were going to write a check for 20K and challenge a colleague to MATCH it, and then never write the check even after the colleague did match it? Nene goes on the “she is right!” trip she has been on for the whole reunion.
Next we discuss, “the new Cynthia.” Someone asks Phaedra about her vicious comments about Cynthia having bills and legal cases all over Atlanta and they ask why she would say such personal and vicious things. Phaedra says it is because Cynthia was spreading rumors about Mr. Chocolate at a time when she was most vulnerable Girl, please. It was your husband who was spreading those rumors and Cynthia brought them to you. She is not your BFF, she had no bond to you to prevent her from discussing what Apollo was saying with whomever she pleased. Cynthia says Phaedra could haves squashed it am moved on just like she did with Nene when she called her a “head doctor.” Phaedra forgave Nene because she apologized. LOL. Naw, Phaedra overlooked Nene’s jabs at her because they both needed some backup this season. Cynthia says she apologized in the Philippines and it was not accepted. Phaedra somehow goes on to say how many jobs she has. Again. Where are these jobs? Has anyone seen them? And how does she do them all when she is flying around to churches trying to sell her etiquette book and passing the love offering plate? Allegedly. Hell even her charities are suspect according to those in attendance at the last one. Continue reading

Okay, Kandi Burruss is going to take her crying on the road today and appear on the Dr. Oz show with Todd to talk about her fertility issues.
I was really hoping they would be at the beginning. Alas, I am suffering through at juice cleanse double segment for you. You’re welcome. While we wait, do you guys think this is all for her spinoff storyline? Because despite all the on camera fighting, they seem all fine and dandy on twitter and Instagram.
In the opening package they state that Kandi and Todd’s marriage is stronger than ever. Dr. Oz says that their first year looked a bit rough. Kandi said it was a major adjustment period. He asks if they regret having it all play on television. Kandi says, “Well especially watching it all play out on this season, we could have kept some things to ourselves.” Todd says it was good they let it all play out. He says that people on the streets tell him every day that they learned something from it. Oh, I don’t think he said people on the streets that was probably my term. heh.
Dr. Oz asks how Kandi has changed over the years. He says he thinks she has become a bit more sensitive. Kandi is shocked. Todd isn’t referring to the constant crying. He says at first she was all rough and tough and now she is calmer and more relaxed. She is a little softer. Todd has a full on beard by the way. Continue reading
Kandi reads Nene
First of all I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they started with behind the scenes footage of all the women getting spackled and spit shined while Andy Cohen wanders around watching it. Andy mocks Phaedra’s GIGANTIC eyelashes. Everyone is in white and Nene is unsuccessfully trying to channel Olivia Pope. Just moments into the previews, I can see that once again my source was golden. Should I just wait patiently for all the Nenetards and Porsha Stans to apologize for doubting me?
Everyone goes in on Nene, Phaedra and Porsha and reads them for filth. If I didn’t have to blog this ish I’d be over on CNN watching Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown. There is like some kind of director’s cut at 8pm from last season and the premiere is at 9 for season 5 in Korea. I’m taping the second run later.
The hotel they always do this at, not only let them back after the police had to be called TWICE last time. But, they have decked it out in a zen themed set. That is new and I could not for the life of me figure out where they were. But it’s the same room they always use.
Andy starts sucking Nene’s asshole right away talking about her “big ass house.” I suppose you have to be from Atlanta to know what a poor choice of homes that one was. Regardless, anilingus appears to be Andy’s favorite position with Nene. Andy asks how it compares to Chateau Sheree. Nene says, well it is built and it is mine. Point Nene. I love when Andy brings up Chateau Sheree because it draws traffic to my NUMEROUS posts about Sheree Whitfield’s construction site. And yes, it remains INCOMPLETE. Just like Ilanya Vanzant’s assessment of Sheree’s Life. And Patti Stanger’s view of Sheree. Who essentially called her unmatchable. None of the ladies seemed pleased by Nene’s new home. Even Phaedra joined the collection of stank faces. Continue reading
I’m going to try to quickly zip through this. I cannot stay up all night to night because if the weather permits I have some things I must do tomorrow. Forgive the sloppy recap. If I do make my appointment you will all be excited. It’s TT related!
First of all, I am all about everyone wearing what makes them happy. If Kandi likes this then, more power to her. I just hope she is not paying a stylist because they need to be shot. Also, if Todd is there, it must be kind of sad coming home to his mama’s town and not having her there. That sucks.
I do love and want that shirt Kandi is wearing. For me. At the Publix. Andy is in love with boobs. He immediately starts talking about Kandi’s boobs. They do look bigger and HIGH. He also says he saw every square inch of Nene’s boobs as they kept peeking out during the reunion. Andy asks Kandi who she thinks was the shadiest this season and she says people will probably say Claudia because she had a lot of confrontations this season. GOOD ANSWER KANDI! I am worried Claudia is on the bubble and we need lots of Claudia discussions.
If this is just going to be a show about pumping up Kandi and Todd’s spin-off, I’ll be thrilled because I am not going to type all that. Kandi says Mama Joyce gave Todd a better apology later. Kandi says that she has kept some great secrets on the show. Continue reading
