I am so behind today and only have an hour and a half until Couples Therapy. While drama raged on at Phaedra’s house, the fashionista gang of RHOA is in NYC to support Cynthia Bailey’s participation in Betsy Johnson’s show. Confirmed so far are Kandi, Kenya and Demetria. Clearly Phaedra is not there, nor is Nene or Porsha. Not sure about Claudia. Sorry I just don’t have time to research this today. I am doing about ten posts at once right now. Continue reading

The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta maybe fighting at night when they all come back together but the day trips seem to be happening in two groups. The above fearless foursome is seen out and about together without the other ladies. Kenya’s face is unrecognizable. She looks like she has lost a lot of weight! Click through for more photos!

ATTN: This is an independently sourced story EXCLUSIVE to Tamaratattles.com theft of this article will result in bad karma, Ebola virus, and syphilis. Wouldn’t it just be smarter to use a small portion with a clear link to this page as the source?
I managed to get in touch with Source who is in Puerto Rico at the moment. All of the RHOA flew in yesterday for their girls trip for season seven. The weather may be hot but the fighting is even hotter. Already. On day one.
The premise of the trip is that new housewife, Demetria McKinney has a “concert” this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Demetria is an actress and singer and has recently released a single, 100, to coincide with her stint on RHOA. That said, I can’t find any publicity online for where exactly Demetria is singing. I admit I didn’t try that hard because it really doesn’t matter. Continue reading
Last night was the VIP opening of Sports One a joint business venture between Kordell Stewart and Peter Thomas in Charlotte, North Carolina. Peter Thomas is doing press this morning in Charlotte and has revealed a lot of information! Bravo camera shot for fifteen hours yesterday in Charlotte. Peter confirmed two new girls mentioning Claudia Jordan by name and said both new girls are extremely attractive. The other new girl is Demetria McKinney who I have mentioned before.
Peter was asked if there was any drama at filming and he said that the two new girls are both very beautiful and there was some “chemistry” there. He also said that Kordell “had not been seen by the screen for a while” and something went down with that. Peter talked about having to turn people away and said they can come back tonight and it will be more fun. He says taping in the bar is a bit boring because the TVs can’t be on and there is no music so it’s a very quiet set. Peter has indicated that Bravo has come to him for a spin-off, but then he just explained a lot of taping issues with taping in a bar, so. I would not hold my breath.
In addition to Sports One, Peter will also be opening a Bar One in Charlotte that is set to open on New Years Eve! Peter says he is already in Charlotte at least five days out of the month.
It sounds like Kenya, Cynthia, Claudia and Demetria were the only RHOA ladies in attendance. Cynthia was on one show with Peter and said she is going to be “spicier” this season. That sounds promising. One of my Charlotte spies spotted Gregg in Charlotte on Tuesday but did not see Nene. So we may see Gregg as well. Peter is really pushing for a househusbands spin-off.
With Porsha being on Dish Nation full time now I am suspecting we will only see her on a couple of episodes with Nene in the beginning of the season which should begin in November.
I have a fresh pot of EXCLUSIVELY SOURCED RHOA in dribs and drabs and the time has come to share it with you. Please use only excerpts and include a clear link to TamaraTattles.com when reporting on this story! Thanks for your professionalism!
In a nutshell, filming has been weird. I am not sure what it all means. Let’s start with Phaedra. Far from the rumored “leave of absence” Phaedra has been filming a good deal. She’s filmed with Apollo in Chastain Park the day before she arrived late to Cynthia’s Essence party only to leave when she realized Apollo was there. That seems more and more like planned drama because contrary to before Apollo was sentenced and before RHOA filming began when the two love birds were all touring the country separately, they are currently both back in the house, and filmed a scene in the house yesterday. Phaedra has also filmed with Cynthia that I know of. Fun Phaedra fact: Phaedra lives in a Cul de Sac in a nice part of Atlanta proper. It’s not a gated community but it is rather secured and has a low crime rate if you take Apollo out of the equation. Last week, Phaedra from some reason decided she wanted to fence the front yard and add an electronic keypad entry gate for the driveway. The neighbors were a bit perplexed by that decision. They were even more confused when the work crew failed to locate the water and electric before digging. And they hit the water line. To make matters worse, no one was home when this happened.

I have been goofing off all morning, er… um….afternoon, and watching Tyrant and catching up on Twitter and I came across a post on Reality Tea about Kandi buying Todd a Corvette for his birthday! That post reminded me of something that Source told me during our last chat. It seems there is a lot of car shopping happening in Atlanta.
Not only did Kandi buy Todd a Corvette, retail value between $50-65K, another Real Housewife of Atlanta has been car shopping for her man and herself. Continue reading
One of the downsides of having your own website, is that it takes a lot of work and consumes all of your time. It keeps me from reading other blogs that I used to really enjoy, like StraightFromtheA. Michelle is a great source of RHOA tea because she is very active in the ATL social life and runs in the same circles as a few of the housewives. Phaedra in particular. Because of her friendliness with Phaedra, Atlien has been fairly mum on the unfortunate position that Phaedra is currently facing. She did however post recently about a party to celebrate Cynthia’s spread in Ebony Magazine, that she attended. She is also the source for the numerous reports you guys a have sent me (thanks!) about Phaedra “taking a leave of absence” from filming RHOA. If you had told me that the story was coming from Atlien I would have investigated sooner. I’ve drilled down all the tea. Grab a snack and get ready for this because there is a lot to cover. And for me the Phaedra stuff is a mere side order.
I am continuing to research and am not sure where to start. First of all, the party was held on July 17th at Bar One to celebrate Cynthia Bailey’s Ebony Magazine spread. All of the former housewives were there except three. According to Atlien, Phaedra was en route when she was tipped off that Apollo was there. She opted not to show up. It is interesting that production would not alert Phaedra to the fact that her soon to be ex husband would be at the event.
As you recall, I exclusively reported that the previous day, July 16th, Apollo, Phaedra and the boys were filming in Chastain Park. They arrived in separate cars, even the boys and the nanny had their own car. It sounded like a supervised visitation sort of thing to me. I speculated that it would be the Phaedra and Apollo breakup scene. Perhaps she presented the divorce papers. There have been reports of Phaedra filing for divorce this week. I found nothing on the website to substantiate that claim. However, it is obvious that will be happening. My spies in Phaedra’s neighborhood say they haven’t seen Apollo at the house in quite some time. She’s done with him. This is not news. Continue reading
What happened in Vegas, almost stayed in Vegas. Most of it is still a mystery, but I do have some tea. First of all, Kenya Moore was there with Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson, Melissa Gorga for an event at Caesar’s Place. It appears that the housewives competed in several events with a high roller from the casino as a partner. In one event, “runway walking” Kenya takes an unexpected bobble and makes it all seem like part of the performance. Her impressive recovery won that round for her team. See the video at end of post. But read on for lots of other Vegas tea! Continue reading
Kenya Moore will still not admit she is coming back to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. She does say that Bravo has not announced that everyone will be back. She does make it clear that she will continue to be housewife chosen for the ridiculous “woman of a certain age who wants a baby” storyline, muck like, Tamra, Ramona, Luann, and others before her. She continues to neither confirm or deny her current relationship status.
Click through for the video… Continue reading
Who can forget this lovely scene? Where the lovely Kenya tries to explain to Porsha that she is too dumb to realize she is being used?
Wow! Andy starts off saying that social media seems to be taking Porsha’s side over the attack. I told you guys, Andy is all about the social media opinion. He asks her if she is surprised. She says that it is sad that people would take the side of someone who attacked someone. She says that saying that Kenya made her do it or that Kenya deserved it is sad. I agree. Andy asks if Kenya was being a bully. Andy says something about the props, that he thought were so hysterical but now that people whined on twitter… I just can’t.
Kenya says there was a plan in place to attack her at the reunion, Andy counters saying the other side says she had a plan in place to attack Porsha with her bullhorn and scepter. Dear God, who is this man interviewing Kenya? His position changes every time the social media wind blows.
Kenya says that Porsha came at her with lies from the beginning and that Kenya was not expecting to have much of an issue with Porsha because her issues at that time were with Nene and Phaedra. Kenya says that Porsha has attacked her over her relationships for two seasons and to blame the attack on Kenya somehow bullying her is insane. Andy says that when Porsha was there last week he asked her if she felt she owed Kenya an apology. He plays the clip. Kenya says that Porsha is incapable of showing contrition and she is incapable of remorse. Continue reading
These shows are always boring so I am not particularly excited by this episode. That said, production sure did seem to enjoy calling out Nene on her lies with unseen footage on the reunion, so they may surprise us with something interesting. Meanwhile, my new DVR refuses to record RHOA. I can’t say that I blame it.
Oh really Andrew, we are going to talk about Nene and her being such a good friend? Andy asks what happened to all the furniture that Kenya gave (loaned?) Nene when she was in LA. Nene immediately starts saying it was just a bunch of crap. Apparently, Kenya sold her a TV and some other items. Who cares? Next they roll tape of Nene and Kenya getting along and Kenya talking about her boyfriend. Kenya’s in love and her man cannot leave Nigeria, so it’s a problem. Apparently, the sex is great. We find out her man is in his 30s.
Kandi has been a good friend and a mentor to Porsha. They show a package about the two girls. OMG, Rickey Smiley let Porsha try to do the news on the air on his radio show. The girl cannot read, y’all. How is she supposed to report the news? Porsha is the Sonja Morgan of RHOA, she has all of these imaginary businesses she is going to get going very soon. Porsha and Kandi sing a little bit of His Eye is On the Sparrow, and I gotta say, Porsha sounded good especially with no music and no autotune. Continue reading
