kandiburruss Late post from weds night. I invited my girls @phaedraparks @porsha4real @cynthiabailey10 & @thekenyamoore to a special performance of my groups @theband_loud & @officially_glamour. I also surprised them with my baby news! It was a great night!
As if Kandi Burruss didn’t have enough going on in her life, now that she is expecting, she has resurrected her label Kandi Koated to sign two bands featuring young, up and coming singers. Last Wednesday night RHOA filmed a little mini concert performed by her two bands Loud and Glamour. Continue reading
Kandi Burruss is pregnant according to Us Magazine!
“We’re so thrilled to announce the news of our bundle of joy! It’s a dream come true.” Kandi said. “Our daughters, Kaela and Riley, couldn’t be happier about becoming big sisters,” Tucker added.
They sex of the baby has not been disclosed. Toddy is praying for a boy. Frankly, so am I.
Well, um, YAY! I hope there was something in the prenup about child custody. Continue reading
Here is the latest EXCLUSIVE TEA on the confusing RHOA Casting .
The new production team for RHOA does not seem to know what they want. Their tactics seem to be film a bunch of random stuff and figure it all out later. But now they are going to be doing it without Claudia. Claudia appears to be out for good this time. Claudia has opted to work her own booking (often with Demetria McKinney) and leave RHOA behind. Claudia has been making a lot of changes in her life and moving her career in a different direction. RHOA can’t seem to promise anyone anything at the moment and Claudia is not one to sit on the sidelines while other people get their shit together.
So Claudia and Demetria are in NYC doing their thing. I hope Claudia changes her mind, but my sources say that Claudia needs to work and she always seems to have some sort of event or photo shoot lined up. Continue reading

I was up all night watching Big Brother. Today it is 82 degrees inside my house and close to 100 outside. I feel like I am literally being cooked. It is too hot to think and too hot to post. This place has turned into some sort of cancer survivor thunderdome. It’s exhausting and I need a coffee enema just to deal with all the hostility.
So naturally, I get new RHOA tea. I’m sure y’all remember the last casting tea which sucked, and quite frankly did not make sense. The thought that Kenya was even in question was perplexing to me. I swear, every year the production team seems to sit in a room with all the potential housewives’ photos and blindfold themselves before throwing darts to see who is in and who is out. But there has never been a much confusion as there is this year. I blame Nene cutting off her nose to spite her face decisions. There was supposed to be filming this week and….nothing happened. More meetings. More musical peaches. Continue reading

Okay, I have been getting info all weekend on RHOA casting which “officially” starts filming today. And I don’t like it one bit. I admit I post the tea faster when it is something I want to hear and try like hell to disprove it if it is something bad. This is bad. Like really bad.
The last RHOA casting scoop I had said that Nene, Kenya, Kandi and Cynthia were in and Claudia, Porsha, and Phaedra were on standby. Once Nene “left” I know we here at TamaraTattles were hoping that Claudia would come back. Well, that is not what I am hearing.
The thing about this very early casting tea is that things change all the time and nothing is set in stone. What I am hearing now is that the only people who seem completely safe are Kandi and Cynthia. What about Kenya you ask? Because I have asked that to everyone I know, and it seems that Kenya and PHAEDRA are in the same pot. Producers are worried about both of them having enough storyline to be a full time housewife. They are both going to film and decisions will be made in a few weeks as to what to do with them. I can’t imagine Kenya not coming back, ESPECIALLY with Nene gone, but this is the word on the street in both NYC and Atlanta. Continue reading

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
