Carmon who is Kandi’s never before mentioned BFF and personal assistant arrives at Chez Kandi to find Kandi conveniently looking at bridal “books” and thinking about wedding dress shopping. She seems to think her mother is coming around on Kandi and Todd’s marriage.
Kandi has more framed pictures and art on the wall than most museums. I like it! Todd tries to tell Kandi to stand up to her mother like an adult. No need to be disrespectful to her mother, but she can’t let her mother be disrespectful to Todd.
Nene, Gregg and Brentt go over to Mynique Smith’s house. Mynique is a new “friend of a housewife” this season. She was brought in to give Nene someone to play with because Nene’s “Hollywood” storyline fell through after The New Normal was cancelled and her role on Glee is rarely recurring anymore. He husband is a retired NFL player, Chuck Smith. Chuck was a groomsman in Nene’s second marriage. Nene claims she grew up with Chuck in Athens. Chuck admits to dating Kandi but not Phaedra. When did he date Kandi? Nene, who has sworn up and down she did NOT know Phaedra when they were in Athens, not claims that Phaedra had a bad reputation in Athens. She says Phaedra was known as a “head doctor.” Nene is the kind of friend who will bring you on national television with your wife and immediately start an interrogation on who you have or have not slept with. Isn’t that lovely? Continue reading

Kandi has posted her blog on last night’s episode. She has tended to blog only sometimes and mostly very briefly on Bravo, but I think she really wanted to stop the influx of tweets about how she needs to stand up to her mother. What do y’all think? Is it too late for Kandi to take a stand with her mother at this point? Continue reading
Sorry for the delay, TAR running behind got me behind and I decided to just wait and recap RHOA today.
Oh Phaedra and Appollo are not speaking. Phaedra is headed to Alabama to study and take her funeral director test. With the baby. Is Apollo in school somewhere? He always seems to have a backpack with him. What’s up with that?
Cynthia is working at her agency and Apollo walks in to see Peter for advice. This fake sitch with Kenya is played out. TMZ did a story just this week just to explain that nothing happened between Kenya and Apollo. Who does that? It was a non-story story. Fake or not, Peter seems surprisingly good with the marital advice Continue reading

What do you mean that picture is not of the Real Housewives of Atlanta? Does it really matter at this point? Aren’t all these shows interchangeable by this point? Kenya really wants to be provocative. I was just talking about this very thing today. She LOVES saying things like, ” I am not stranger to having my legs in the air upside down.” because she WANTS us to call her a whore. When, I suspect by the way she acts, she has been laid since she won her Miss USA crown in 1972. So call her a whore. She will love it.
Poor Kandi. Kandi is on this show for two reasons. She was a wildly successful musical artist who invested well and has more money than the rest of these bitches put together and because she is willing to play nice with everyone. She may have some drama later this season, but that is a rarity. She’s rich, she’s grounded and she is above this nonsense. But she likes to make an easy dollar and this show gives her that (in addition to her other enterprises, which unlike the others give her a very cushy lifestyle). So she is for that reason stuck with filming with Kenya. She, like the rest of us would like for Kenya’s Gone with the Wind Fabulous crap to be over. Kandi claims her ankle is hurt so she can’t ride the silks. Kandi is also on the wedding diet and she is cranky. Continue reading

NEW YORK – November 19, 2013 – Bravo Media earned a record-breaking night this past Sunday, powered by “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which made Bravo the #1 cable network in the 8pm hour among A18-49 and attracted nearly 3.7 million total viewers – making it the highest-rated episode of the season among all key demos, according to Nielsen.
“Watch What Happens Live,” which featured guests Phaedra Parks and Ben & Jewel Tankard, also delivered its most-watched episode of the season with nearly 1.4 million total viewers. Continue reading

We start this episode with a bit of good news for Kandi. Lord knows she needs some with her mother trying her best to keep her down. Kandi’s new studio is almost finished and it looks fantastic! It’s very “Kandi” with the pink vinyl chairs in her office. Kandi talks to Don Juan, her manager, about her mother. Don Juan says that Mama Joyce may just be concerned about where she will fit in once Kandi and Todd get married. He says he has the same sort of concerns. Essentially, he is worried that Kandi won’t need him anymore, that Todd will take over as her manager. It sounds a little selfish, but it is true that once someone marries their priorities do often change and their relationships with other may indeed become diminished.
Kandi seems a bit offended and thinks Don Juan is only there for her checks. Well, he may not ONLY be there for the checks, but he is her employee and I think he is right to be slightly concerned. Todd and Kandi are already producing plays together and forming business deals on their own. If Todd does decide he wants to manage Kandi, then Don Juan could very well be out on the streets looking for his next paycheck. Continue reading

Okay, enough laying around watching movies, time to get back to business and crank out some blawgs. We begin with Kenya coming out of the courtroom claiming victory over her landlord. Kenya is thrilled there is “paparazzi waiting on her.” LOL It is one dude from AJC and if I didn’t know better I would think that 5 cent from RHOM’s Vegas trip was the photographer. #delusional
Porsha got a five thousand dollar check from Kordell. Speaking of Kordell, I read his twitter time line today and he was not happy with Porsha’s gay implications from last week’s show. Porsha moves in with her mother AND kicks her out of the master bedroom. WOW. Continue reading

I have no idea why Kandi is not in this picture…
Time for some Real Housewives of Atlanta. Everyone has a new tag line this season.
Nene: I live to be the star, and I am definitely in charge!
Kandi: Music may be my passion but family is forever.
Cynthia: My business is beauty, and I’m the boss.
Porsha: I am still standing and I’m making my own rules!
Phaedra: A true southern belle knows her own worth and I am priceless.
Kenya: People think they have me figured out, but I’m always the wild card.
And those six ladies are the only ones holding a peach! So we can finally squash all the rumors about getting a new housewife! I do think we may have a new friend or two, including Marlo.
Don’t keep reading if you want the first episode to be a surprise next Sunday. You can bookmark this post and come back later. Continue reading

Those of you new to Tamara Tattles may not have read my post about Phaedra’s “religious” shindig for her first born son Ayden. Do click the link to learn about the chocolate baby Jesus and how the child was carried into the church on a litter and proclaimed to be a prince. Kidding not. So guess what she did for the second son? Continue reading
Attn fellow bloggers: I would REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate if you would be professional and link to my blog and not use it in its entirety at yours. I love those of you who do the right thing, and the rest of you? I may or may not have to introduce you to my legal team at Merchant and Merchant. Don’t let their cute faces fool you.
Here’s another update. I have an exclusive source who is staying at the El Dorado Royale Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico. Actually she is on her own honeymoon there! She filmed last night at a bar called The Bellini Bar is probably going to be on the show so I don’t want to give too many details about her, but I will give her a Congrats on Your Marriage ! Shout out. I did not want to keep her as she is kinda busy… lol. But she dropped in out of no where that Kenya is a big ole bitch on and off camera. They are on the same floor and … well. The Twirler is annoying to random guests! How is that for some exclusive tea? Continue reading
Okay, that’s headline is pretty much all I have for right now. Nene tweeted just before 11 pm that the cops from the APD ”was so great.” Then about 1 am she tweeted, “Some people just belong n jail! See u court.” Will this be another housewife in criminal court? It’s about 2:30 now and it seems like the Neenster is probably home safely tucked in bed, as I should be. I know it’s not a huge story yet, I just thought I would give you guys the heads up. I am off to take one of my great sleeps!
Update 2: Just a couple of thoughts, if Bravo let Marlo back even as a “friend of”, knowing she was convicted several violent offenses, and Marlo struck Nene… they could have a legal problem on their hands despite their iron clad contracts. Also, Nene has been tweets A LOT about how great her husband Gregg is, he put up a sign for I Dream of Nene on top of a Barber Shop where they filmed, etc etc. Nene recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly saying Marlo was extremely difficult to work with. Marlo responded on Radar saying she could not be a housewife because she isn’t married. (Um Hello, Kandi?, Kim? That one manly one that got fired?) So there has been a lot of beef between those two since I Dream of Nene ended. And Nene’s insults have been of the “no man will marry you” variety.
Edited: And great sleep I did. Still having trouble staying awake. But here is the latest. There was a HUGE season 6 scene for RHOA yesterday. It was The Bailey Bowl, a charity event sponsored by Cynthia Bailey. It was an event to promote fitness and nutrition and it was run like a field day. Some of the competition was in the YMCA basketball court and some was outside. Nene’s team was TEAM RICH naturally, and well, they didn’t fare so well. It all started out well with friendly competition but that quickly turned ugly. TEAM RICH had all of Nene’s bridesmaids on it except for Marlo. Marlo was on TEAM TWIRL with Kenya. Lots of Jawing happened between Nene and Marlo and Nene felt that calling the police about Marlo was necessary. Oh LAWD. Not to mention Kenya and Marlo palling around together. Continue reading
