I swear to God you guys try to work me to death on Sunday nights! But for once on a Sunday I am feeling really good. The sun has come back to the ATL finally! So I can handle an episode of RHOA a 90 minute Blood Sweat and Heels Reunion and now whatever this WWHL turns out to be. I’ve just seen the pic so far and it seem a bit odd that they are both dressed for a white party when spring has only sorta kinda started to have sprung.
Oh. You might have noticed I didn’t buy into the whole Housewives Awards bullshit they are trying to make happen. Likewise I will not be reporting the results of things like best hair flip and most memorable outfit. It’s all ridiculous. I will say that Kenya is winning like Charlie Sheen so you can be assured she will be returning next season. You can take that to the bank. Continue reading
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

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

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

The previews for Rea Housewives of Atlanta: Secrets Revealed! are such to make us think this is going to be good. I am of little faith. I was not impressed by the Beverly Hills version. Let’s watch what happens…
Cynthia says that she was so thankfully that a lot of Nene’s scenes were in LA so that the fans would stop attributing her every action to Nene. I get that. It’s true that this season we sort of judged Cynthia based on her own motives and I think overall she came off well. Cynthia is so drop dead stunning, I’d hate to lose her from the show. Cynthia and Kenya went to “play golf.” Really? Neither of these women strike me as the golfing type. But okaaaay. Kenya is accusing SOMEONE ELSE of being gay now? For Kenya to be such dear friends with Lawrence, you would think that the whole gay thing would be more understood by here. To be fair, Atlanta has gay rumors about almost everyone from football players to musicians. But, still shouldn’t Kenya have some sort of functioning gaydar? I could see Porsha not having any gaydar, but Kenya has to know better, right? I can’t see Porsha saying that or Cynthia taking it seriously. Continue reading

It’s time for the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion and Andy is wasting no time. The first order of business is to ask Kandi about serving Kim with papers about Tardy for the Party. It sounds almost like Phaedra served the papers on Kim at the reunion! Kandi says that Kim brought that on herself She was no longer going to allow her to benefit from the song. Coincidentally, Funky Dineva, who I believe is a friend of Kandi’s and appears on her Kandi Coated Nights show from time to time recently released the unedited version of The Ring Doesn’t Mean A Thing which has Kim singing with no autotune. Interesting timing, no?
Phaedra wastes no time with the subtle jabs at Kenya saying “everyone up here is a lady,…..well everyone up here is a female.” Kenya has had her sour face on most of the time. Remind me again how I am supposed to understand that she is not taking all of this seriously, Kenya fans? Puhlease. Andy asks Phaedra what her Mama the preacher thinks about her…what did he call it? open attitude? And Phaedra is the first to say the word penis. She says she likes looking at large penises. That’s our Phaedra displaying her knowledge of being a “southern belle” on national television. Continue reading

It seems the controversy of Kandi Burruss’ recording of a gospel song continues to cause controversy. In that post we had a wide variety of viewpoints on whether or not Kandi should have recorded Prayed Up. Today, Marvin Sapp addressed the situation on his facebook after someone left a self-righteous comment expressing her disappointment in his participation in the song. Here is what he had to say. From the Facebook of Dr. Sapp:
Usually I don’t respond to people about things like this however I must this time. The problem with many in the church is 1.) that we major in minors and 2.) ignorant (not well studied) of scripture. Lets deal with the first, This woman who was an ex R&B singer that sells sex toys and live with her man decided on a show that reaches 10 million viewers per showing (believers and unbelievers) to sing about,,,, Not sex toys, drugs or living with a man but PRAYER!!!!!! and the saints are upset. Continue reading
Kandi is the type to only blog when she has something to say and this week she had a lot to say and it was all about her new gospel song. Kandi is getting a ton of mean tweets condemning her for putting out a gospel song when she has both a sex toy line and a very sexual online show, Kandi Koated Knights. Kandi reminds us that she comes from a very religious family with a long line of preachers. She was raised in the church, although she says she never officially joined the church because she knew she was not going to “follow the rules” and she didn’t want to stand up in front of her families church and lie. Her blog was pretty lengthy for her and it was entirely on this subject. Click through for a portion of what she had to say. Continue reading
Here we go on RHOA. Apologies in advance for the weakness of what is to come. It’s been a long day at Chez Tamara. I’d like to fast forward through this Donkey Bootie V. Stallion Bootie shit. Phaedra thinks she is family friendly. Then she does her nasty nonsense. Whore or (by definition, white southern belle?) I just can’t. Wake me up when this segment is over.
Cynthia decides that modeling stuff is not going well for her… so she is going to do pageants. She is charging girls to be in the pageant and then charging them for her “workshop”. It’s a money-making venture. Sad but true. You no longer have to be a model, you just have to pay to be in a pageant. It’s smart business but trashy.
Porsha and Kenya have a white party of two. It’s staged and ridiculous. Not tonight. I’m bored. I also really should have eaten today. Continue reading

Let’s talk about some love and happiness for a change. Kandi has finally blogged over on Bravo. It seems like something has changed with the whole blogging agreement between the housewives and Bravo because no one seems to care about blogging anymore. This time last year Kandi was quite candid on an episode of Kandi Koated Nights about why she stopped blogging. Shortly after I posted that episode on this site, it was set to private. Then this season, Kandi began blogging again. She really had a lot to say about Kim. We had some animated comments about that post. But this week, Kandi talks for the first time about her engagement. It really isn’t the giddy response you would expect from a newly engaged woman, she talks about pre-nups and introducing Riley to Todd. Kandi is always the practical one. Continue reading
Okay so I am ready for RHOA now. I’ve only seen the last 20 minutes because I had to watch TAR. Next week should be the last week I have that problem but let me tell you even a simple recap takes me a couple of hours. You have to edit and get the pictures together afterward because you don’t know what you will need and do all the tagging by category despite the fact y’all never use THE CATEGORY LISTING CONVENIENTLY LOCATED IN THE LEFT SIDEBAR. Anyway. Let’s get this party started.
Short scene with Kim and the girls. The point was to say how much they love living in the condo. They probably do. It’s a nice size place and back in their old school district. My DVR won’t let me pause anymore because I am past an hour so… this will be frantic.
The go-cart scene with Kenya, Walter, Apollo and Phaedra. Kenya wants to “produce” Phaedra’s Donkey Booty video. Kenya is NOT a producer. She does not have a production company. I don’t have time to get started on all that. Kenya refuses to wear her seat belt on her go-cart until the staff makes her. Kenya and Apollo race. Apollo wins. Continue reading

Ever since I started this blog a few months ago, I’ve been doing some investigating into the RHOA trip to South Africa. I’ve been turning over rocks and trying to make friends in South Africa with people who may know something. I’ve found out bits and pieces that when all weaved together tell a story. I’ve been waiting for more than a bit here and a piece there to get some more explosive insight as to what is going on. It’s been a very slow process. Sometimes, though I forget that I haven’t told you guys everything I know yet. Not so much because I am holding back but because I wanted to know more before I posted. I wanted to have the bigger picture.
So tonight, while trying to figure out what to blog about, I realized that there is a lot I haven’t told you. More than enough for a blog post, but not as much as I would like for there to be on this particular story. I wanted to have MORE. I am working on it. But for tonight, I’m just going to go ahead and tell you what I know about the whole scene from the next episode where Marlo goes off on Sheree for not inviting her to a party. Skip through the jump for the tea.
