Here Is The RHOA Tea From Kenya Moore’s Launch Party

RHOA Filming Watermarked

L-R Sheree, Cynthia, Mallory, Amiyah, Kenya, Marlo, Porsha,Phaedra, Kim Fields (and her husband)

TMZ keeps running these stories about who production has hired to “replace Nene.” First it was Kim Fields, then it was Sheree Whitfield, now it is Amiyah Scott. Well, one out of three ain’t bad. I told you that Kim Fields recently worked the kinks out of her contract and is now filming here:.

As for the usual game of musical peaches, Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi remain as close to sure things as we ever have at this point in the season. I’m told Kim Fields has officially signed on. All the other potentials have fallen by the wayside. So that leaves Phaedra, Porsha and even Cynthia’s sister Mallory to play hot potato for a peach. Andy seems to love Phaedra so she’s probably going to end up with one. Carlos loves Porsha so things are much improved for her.

At this point, barring any last minute indecision by production, the peaches go to Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi, Phaedra, Porsha and Kim.  I do not think there will be a seventh peach, but you never know.

What TMZ doesn’t seem to understand is that Sheree, Marlo, Mallory and Amiyah showing up to a taping doesn’t put them on the show as paid participants.  If I started a new post for every picture I saw, I would have been on the Kim Fields is out! bus.  Or Sheree is in!  bandwagon.  I actually know what is happening behind the scenes and it’s just not that simple.  Sheree, Marlo and Mallory are making day rate pay of about $1.500 or so depending on a few variables.  Amiyah probably just signed a release.  The only person Amiyah has followed on Twitter is Kenya and that is because she was at her event.

The only thing the photos tell me is that Phaedra and Porsha have seemingly secured their peaches as I predicted above.  With the upheaval in production this season, things are more precarious than ever.

Guess Who Came to Cynthia Bailey’s Eyewear Launch Party?

RHOA Sheree and Marlo

Last night Cynthia had a big launch party for her eyewear collection. And guess who showed up? Marlo Hampton and Sheree Whitfield.  It seems that we will be getting a glimpse of both of them.  I’ve been sent several pictures and I am not sure who owns them, but I am going to post the one above because it was sent to me on Twitter.

In other photos I’ve seen, Phaedra and Porsha were standing together with matching stank faces. It seems there is a lot of disharmony in this group.  My sources are reporting that Kim Field’s has officially signed on as a full time houswive, and yet, I saw no evidence of her at the party.  That doesn’t mean she was not there, but I didn’t see her in any photos.  You know me, I might not even recognize her.

I don’t think that Sheree and Marlo will be regularly seen on the show, and I would doubt either would be actual “friends of the housewives” (FOH).  Acutally, if Marlo and Kenya still get along she may have a better shot than Sheree.  Sheree has been selling her used shoes on Instagram lately, so I hope they paid her for this appearance since it seems she needs the money.

Porsha and Kandi Participate in Track Meet to Fight Childhood Cancer

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I  just got the following tip in my email with the above photos:

“The RHOA  Porsha and Kandi were at the Fighting Childhood cancer Celebrity track meet today August 1, 2015 at the Emory University here in Atlanta. Porsha actually competed in the events. RHOA production crew was filming Porsha and Kandi throughout the whole event. So looks like Porsha and Kandi are a lock in for season 8. ”

Saw what you want about Kandi, but she will shoot any scene she is asked, usually with a smile on her face.

A huge thank you to the reader who sent me the email!

Exclusive RHOA Casting Tea: No More Team Pretty

RHOA Claudia and Demetria at Black and White

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

New Frosty Cold SWEET TEA on RHOA Casting

RHOA Team Pretty

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

EXCLUSIVE! RHOA Casting Tea Update

RHOA Kenya come for me

 

The following post is a TAMARATATTLES EXCLUSIVE and should not be reposted on any site in its entirety. Please quote with a link to this post and give appropriate credit if you wish to discuss it on your website.  I shall place a POX ON YOUR HOUSE AND THAT OF ALL OF YOUR FAMILIES if you fail to follow basic  Internet laws regarding the information below.

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.

EXCLUSIVE! Piping Hot Season Eight RHOA Casting Tea

TEA1

This post is exclusively sourced by TamaraTattles.com please do not use this exclusive in its entirety. Excerpts with a clearly visible link to TamaraTattles.com is requested. Failure to quote and link properly will lead to immediate contraction of genital warts. Note to Radar Online  and other nefarious sites, rewriting this post as something that YOU have acquired from an anonymous source will be responded to with every and all possible legal action.

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

The Third and Thankfully Final Recap of Kandi’s Ski Trip

RHOA Kandi's ski trip

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

Kandi’s Ski Trip Recap: Mend and Blend or Fight and Bite?

RHOA Kandi's ski trip

 

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

Kandi’s Ski Trip: I Finally Saw Episode One

RHOA Kandi's ski trip

 

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
