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.

Exclusive: RHOA Is Filming New Scenes in Post Production!

RHOA Phaedra Fence

EDITED TO ADD, shortly after this post was made, all the RHOA people removed pictures of their filming at STK ATL . Interesting.  I just went back to watermark mine. :)

This article is sourced by an EXCLUSIVE Tamaratattles.com source. Please follow appropriate Internet etiquette when quoting and linking to this story.

We’ve all noticed that the production/editing of Real Housewives of Atlanta is a bit odd this year. Peaches were being passed around like a game of hot potato all through filming. Production doesn’t bother with a real opening montage of the housewives for their highest rated show? It’s a clusterfuck. Then there was the story sent to TMZ saying that Apollo was home going nuts on Phaedra when he had left the house several days before his self-surrender date and going to Nashville or wherever. It seems they are spending all of their time making up storylines rather than just enhancing whatever these fools really have going on.  That scene with Phaedra and the fence?  That was one of the last things filmed. While the main filming wrapped just before the holiday season, it would seem that post-production filming is going to be more than the usual talking heads.

Speaking of the fence, I think that whole thing was storyline. Phaedra and or Bravo would like for us to believe that there was paparazzi stalking Phaedra’s house. She needs a fence so that these imaginary paps won’t take pictures of her children. You remember her children, the two adorable little props she uses for storyline. The ones she posts pictures of and drags to the Bravo offices for videotaping with Andy. Those children.  A couple of days ago, I was informed that the neighborhood meeting about the proposed fence was held, the entire neighborhood voted it down, and Phaedra didn’t even show up. A few weeks ago the trench that was dug (where they busted a waterline) was re-landscaped and seeded back over with grass seed. Case closed? Going with a moat instead? Who knows? Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta: Unseen Footage

Nene in Mexico

So Far in Mexico, the only shade Nene is throwing is from her sombero!

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.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part Two: Chapter Two

RHOA Reunion 2014 mama joyce

Okay, the first fifteen minutes of the second part of reunion were so jam packed, they have their own post here. For the remainder of the reunion, I am going to try to just hit some of the highlights, or low lights as they will likely be.  I just could not get over the defensiveness of the ring leaders of the attack on Kenya in the first part of the reunion and wanted to make sure I got it all down.

One thing for sure is that Andy is having a hard time getting back into a playful groove with the ladies on the reunion. He seems way more serious than he usually does on reunions.

Andy is going in on Phaedra! When we return from break he says to her, “That night both head doctor and dick surgeon were trending on Twitter, how did that make you feel?” Phaedra says “At the end of the day (drink) I know that that’s never been a rumor, so I knew that it wasn’t the truth. And I mean, what Kenya’s talking about (that would be the deposition taken in a room full of attorneys and Phaedra when testimony is given about Phaedra’s head doctor ways. See Link) I’m not even thinking about. ” Welp, Phaedra. It must be nice to have so many legal proceedings involving you and your husband going on and not even giving them a second thought.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 2 Chapter One!

Oh My! That Bullhorn is soo scary and threatening! Must use fistisses!

Oh My! That Bullhorn is soo scary and threatening! Must use fistisses!

We arrive back at the reunion with Porsha ejected from the show and a definite line in the sand drawn between the left couch and the wrong couch. Andy is very clear in his defense of Kenya and his disdain for Porsha. Oh my how wrong this little plot of Nene’s and Phaedra’s has gone. They both will be wearing their stank faces for the rest of the reunion shoot. You never win when you play dirty ladies!

After explaining that violence will not be condoned under any circumstance, Andy asks Kenya what happened. Kenya says, ” Well, we were talking back and forth, um, all I know is she got up out of her seat and stood in front of me and I got up and she just lost control.” Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Recap: Porsha Goes Psycho!

Kenya Porsha Cynthia

It’s time to watch what will likely be the most watched episode of any Real Housewives franchise ever. It’s part one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion where Porsha is about to lose her mind in a very short period of time.

Wow! Before we even get started Nene Leakes has her stank attitude going on. And Porsha and Kenya have some stank face happening too. The word is that there was some conspiring amongst the ladies to get Porsha to go after Kenya and it sure does look like something happened before the cameras began rolling.

Andy compliments Kenya on her dress and inquires about her scepter. Kenya explains it is something Queens carry. She is already grinning at Andy and asks if he would like to be knighted. Andy agrees to let Kenya “knight” him. This already has Phaedra rolling her eyes and pulling faces. Andy acknowledges Porsha’s ginormous fake titties. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Finale Recap: Final Curtain Call

 

Kenya

Why were there no first looks this week? Getting the first 8 minutes ahead of time really helps in the set up process! We begin the RHOA finale with Kandi rehearsing in her living room and she really sounds great. Todd and Kandi are worried about ticket sales. Kandi says that after the play, it’s time to get started planning the wedding. Kandi brings up the pre-nup again.

I like Kenya just fine but I just don’t get making a big ass production on TV over the death of her dog. I can see the crying scenes telling her cast mates about the passing, but not some road site funeral mess. And what the motherfuck is she wearing?  Did her aunt just call the urn a urine. Where the hell are they? I just can’t with this. I didn’t watch Sonja burying her dog on camera this season, but personally, I can do without this. Just like the three episodes of slow death of Abby Lee Miller’s mom on Dance Moms.  I don’t watch these shows for televised despair.

Ayden and Apollo made a cake to congratulate Phaedra on graduating from mortuary school. She wants to buy a crematorium. Sidenote: Ayden was sporting a large Band-Aid on his forehead. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Mess Rehearsal

RHOA Don JuanWe begin with Porsha in the studio. I was prepared for her to sound like Kim Zolciak, or the Countess, but she is actually not so bad. I’ve read good things about her song Flatline on my twitter feed but haven’t bothered to check it out. I’m definitely interested in what y’all have to say. The song she is recording here is called Perfectly Worthless. I wonder who is writing her songs because the writing is not bad. The universe seems to disagree with me since some lighting or something falls on her as she is recording.

Porsha is apparently spending time in the studio instead of going to play practice. She has missed numerous rehearsals. Kandi arrives at the studio and she  is not amused.

Nene is in LA meeting with Steven Grossman, her manager, who apparently is a miracle worker and the one that does all the hustling to get Nene bookings. Yet, she walks into the room publically insulting him saying she is looking for a little short man, when she knows exactly where he is.  Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Nene.  Nene is there to approve some sketches for her “fashion line” with HSN. (I thought it was Kmart. Or Sear. Or the Salvation Army. ) She of course makes it sound like HSN tracked her down and begged her to come on board. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: With Friends Like These

RHOA Nene Mexico

GIF BY RealityTVGIFs a GIF blog by T. Kyle MacMahon The best source for animated Real Housewives GIFs.

It is very telling that the title of this episode, With Friends Like These, refers to Cynthia realizing that her friends contract with Nene is essentially null and void. Nene gets the episode on disk the week it airs and this likely prompted her recent comments about “friends” and people “diminishing her character.” Nene cannot stand getting “the bad edit” and this season has been a doozy for her in that regard.

The show begins in Mexico where their last evening is coming to a close. Peter and Gregg are bumping heads a little bit when the women arrive. Nene sticks her nose smack in the middle of the men’s business and tells Peter that he needs to keep his nose out of women’s business. #hypocrite While I realize that Peter does tend to be a bit gossipy at times, in this instance, he is right. He is allowed to have an opinion about Nene’s behavior at Kenya’s charity ball. He kept it to himself until his wife met him in the parking lot. Nene is the one who got into a marital conversation and started puffing up her chest. Continue reading
