Exclusive: Tiny Drop of RHOA Tea…

RHOA Korean Flight

Exclusive: Play nice. Please excerpt and clearly link. Ebola. Blah.  Blah. Blah.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, Demetria McKinney, Porsha Williams, and Claudia Jordan have left the country.  That’s way too many housewives. SEVEN.  And Nene is not on the trip.  I’ve been working sources for a day or so now and the best I can determine is that the ladies are going to BALI. That is one long ass trip. It’s even longer from Atlanta than it is from Beverly Hills and you know how jetlagged they all were.

The ladies are on a new fangled AIRBUS 380 that is often referred to as a cruise ship in the sky. It’s a double decker plan that holds around 400 passengers. There are three classes. I think the ladies are in the midlevel class which is the complete top level of the plane. That section has a bar/lounge. On the lower deck there is a high end duty-free shop with perfume and make-up and booze. They left on Korean Air’s 15 hour flight to Seoul, Korea. That much I know for sure. That is the only place  Korean Air flies the Airbus 380 to from ATL. From there, I’m making an educated guess that Bali is their final destination. They would have an overnight layover and then fly the next 7 hour leg into Bali. You know how all the franchises end up going to the same places. Continue reading

Exclusive: Kenya Moore Makes Good on Her Donation to Detroit Public Schools Foundation

RHOA Kenya Check

This story is a TamaraTattles.com EXCLUSIVE sourced by our independent sources. Please follow proper protocol when excerpting and clearly linking to this story. You may have noticed Ebola is now in the country. You can blame those who misuse my work for that. My powers are vast.

After posting this story about Kenya Moore’s cancellation of a student assembly where she was expected to make a $20,000 donation,  a source close to Kenya reached out to me to attempt to explain the situation. After a bit of back and forth, I believe I have finally gotten the real story.

First of all, Kenya’s donation to the foundation came from her personal funds and was NOT connected to Celebrity Apprentice. Changes in the filming schedules that resulted in Kenya being unable to attend were initiated by Real Housewives of Atlanta production.  Also, production was not going to Detroit to film the check presentation. Her high school, Cass Tech ,proposed the ceremony in her honor to say thank you for the generous donation. Continue reading

Kenya Moore Reschedules Her Donation to Detroit School System TWICE.

Porsha Williams Mugshot

Tonight I am feeling like snatching Kenya’s scepter

Excuse me, but I am a bit pissed off tonight. When I logged on for the first time today I had an email from GoFundMe letting me know there was a new announcement on Reality Tea’s fundraising drive for Detroit Public Schools. As a former teacher, it was a cause that was near and dear to my heart and I had been on the receiving end of many generous gifts to my classroom. I’m a strong believer in paying it forward and I made a contribution that is why I get the updates.  I looked on Twitter for the link to the Reality Tea donation site to include when I wrote  this post where I praised Kenya for her donation and defended her in comments.  I read in the update that Kenya’s donation event had been postponed again. I went to Reality Tea and read their article. As a Kenya fan, I wanted to hear her side of the story.  I did not rush to judge. I contacted Kenya.

I had the very best of intentions and believed that there must be a logical explanation why the donation ceremony was cancelled twice in two weeks. It takes a lot for a school to put together a school wide event with TV cameras. I got back two pissy emails. One informed me that “I  am  on a goddamn TV show and they reschedule things all the time.” The  next one said something about a conflict with her father’s schedule.  I responded that I am on her side and my blog is very favorable to her. I did tell her in first email that this seems to undo all the goodwill that she was putting out by donating. I felt badly for her. I am a supporter. I was trying to figure out where the problem lied. I am actually aware she is on a goddamn TV show. I don’t know what her father’s schedule has to do with anything. I sent a second email explaining I was only trying to help and that my site is very #TeamTwirl for the most part. I was asking for a defense. I heard nothing until her rant on Twitter. I’m not feeling super twirly tonight. Continue reading

Kenya Moore Puts Her Money Where Her Mouth Is. Nene Leakes? Not So Much.

Kenya Moore RHOAKenya Moore is a woman of her word. She will be in Detroit next week to present a check to the Detroit Public School System for $20,000. If you recall, Nene challenged Kenya to make the donation to a charity of her choice for $20K  and Nene would match it.  Time to go look in that empty Hermes bag, Nene!

Article excerpts from Ann Zaniewski, Detroit Free Press Education Writer (Click for full story)

Kenya Moore, a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” will donate $20,000 during an appearance Oct. 17 at Cass Technical High School, her alma mater. It will be filmed for an upcoming episode of the show.

Moore said her Detroit roots, the inequities she sees in the education system and the city’s financial problems inspired her to give back. “I think right now it’s a dire situation for Detroit. I wish I could give more of my money to DPS. Clearly, $20,000 is not going to solve the problem, (but) hopefully it will help.”

Moore also plans to start a scholarship program for girls who attend Cass Tech. Moore and fellow cast member NeNe Leakes each pledged to donate $20,000 during a sixth-season reunion episode of the Bravo TV show. It was taped in March and aired in May. Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan Judging Hot Men!

Instagram

Instagram

On Saturday, Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia faced a long grueling day of filming. Okay, it may have been a long day but it certainly doesn’t sound grueling to me.  With all of the various factions on the upcoming season with way too many “housewives” I’m going to refer to these three who seem to be quite happy filming together as Team Pretty.

So Team Pretty was tasked with spending their weekend with a ton of hunky guys because the Bailey Agency was hired by Ebony Magazine to find twenty hot men for the February 2015 issue of  Ebony. The ladies spent Saturday at the Sheraton hotel holding  an open casting call for successful men between the ages of 28 -50.  I guess Kenya got some digits. :) It sounds like a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon to me.

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

EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Atlanta Explode in Puerto Rico

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

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.

Peter Thomas and Kordell Stewart Open Sports One in Charlotte

RHOA SportsOne

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.

Have a Seat And Sip This RHOA Tea I Have For You

Real housewives of Atlanta

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.

You Get A Car! And You Get A Car! And You Get A Car!

RHOA Todd Tucker Corvette

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

Real Housewives of Atlanta Tea, And Lots of It

Kenya Porsha Cynthia

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.
