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
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 knew this was going to happen when Nene cut off her nose to spite her face. But now, TMZ is reporting it But amusingly they got the story all wrong. Nene fucked herself in contract negotiations. SHE WAS IN for season 8. She had a spinoff. But no… She got too big for her britches and now she is FUCKED.
Let me purple pen the TMZ story, because my RHOA sources are WAY better than theirs.
NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak were thiiis close to reuniting on TV … but Bravo just scrapped their new show, “Road to Riches.”
Yeah, not so much, you don’t seem to understand that Nene has been CUT from RHOA, Bravo in general and everything else. She tried a power play that did not work. She is DONE . She will never be on Bravo again.
TMZ has learned NeNe and Kim’s road trip show — think Oprah and Gayle with more arguing — has been 86’d due to scheduling issues.
Total BS. Kim finished up Don’t Be Tardy filming in June. Shortly after this scene, she announced on Twitter she was done with filming. Nene will be finished with TTTT TOMORROW. Nene FUCKED herself with her demands and Bravo is NOT taking her back. 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

So a moderated comment came in from “bagladey” saying that Kenya was referring to Andy as ‘Mandy’ on Twitter and that he was pissed about it. So I had to check into this. Unfortunately it is true that Kenya was doing that. Which I find rather appalling and juvenile and beneath her. On the other hand, Andy is shady with her ALL THE TIME. Which he admits so I don’t think he was really that pissed about it. And Kenya is all locked in for season 8 so no worries there.
The discussion about this happened on a recent Ask Andy. It’s kind of interesting so I thought I’d transcribe it here.
I was up most of the night last night and slept in late this morning. When I opened my email it was full of messages about James Freeman being married. I start sorting emails as soon as I get up and before I am awake. I am still trying to wrap my head around this.
My heart is breaking for Kenya. It was just ten days ago that sites were falsely reporting that Kenya and James had gotten engaged in Las Vegas. That was hard enough for her to deal with I am sure. Can you imagine everyone texting her asking her if she is engaged, and she was not?
It was just months ago that Kenya started sharing some of their dating life on her Instagram account. I knew it was serious then because Kenya generally doesn’t post her love interests on Instagram. She captioned one of their date photos with
Sometimes you can spend your whole life looking for Prince Charming when a King arrives. Thank you @pattistanger and @cynthiabailey10 and my fans for your love and support and desire for my happiness. #matchmaker #KingJames #FriendsFirst #MillionaireMatchmaker.
Everyone was happy for her. Continue reading
Bravotv.com: Do you think NeNe will write her check to the charity?
Kenya Moore: Sadly, I do not think it’s clear if NeNe will ever write the check. If she was honest and sincere about putting our differences aside for charity last year, she would have matched the donation as she promised. She made a promise to the kids of the city of Detroit to donate $20,000. She has made every excuse in the world as to why she hadn’t written it. First, she didn’t think the donation was real, which is why I posted it on social media so that no one would have doubts. Conveniently she now claims I somehow am making a mockery of charity. This is the same woman who wears $20,000 outfits and posts photos on her graffitied $12,000 Hermes Birkin bags on social media, but I’m the one making a mockery of charity? She also tried to say I didn’t donate my own money, which is a lie.
The Detroit Public Schools Foundation has acknowledged they received a total of $40,000 on behalf of myself, which includes the additional $20,000 win from my appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. She also just bought a $2 million home. Obviously this is about her lack of character. You are nothing in life if you can’t depend on your word. It takes a real morally debased person to steal from children. Yet, I still pray that the NeNe who is a good person will do the right thing.
Don’t hold your breath Kenya, I don’t believe there is a good person in there anywhere.
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

Kenya Moore has released the full episode of the Life Twirls On Pilot. I finally took some time to watch it and I think it’s pretty funny. It is littered with RHOA inside jokes. When Kenya gets some face work done the first thing I thought of was Brandi’s face.
My thoughts on the show are that Janet Hubert would have needed to be replaced anyway. I think her character is based on Kenya’s real aunt with some silly folklore thrown in for laughs. Since we have seen her real aunt, Janet just doesn’t work for me. I wonder if her real aunt can act?
Brandon is cast as the over the top gay. I love him, but I think they went a bit far over the top. The general public is not going to get the tossed salad joke. It is pretty funny to me. But I think the average viewer would just find it weird.
Some things worked better than others. I thought the camera angles were very well done. Shots like the scene that opened on the jerk tofu were interesting. Continue reading
