In case you missed LAST week. It was Foghorn Leghorn week, allegedly.
It’s Disney night on Dancing With The Stars. I’m already bored. I really hope Nene dances in the first hour but I swear they hold her until last knowing we will all suffer through to watch her. Drew Carey, who had the same scores from the judges the last two weeks as Nene was put through for another week. That means it is likely either Nene or Candace going home tonight. For some reason the judges hate Candace, who actually dances, and love Nene, who lumbers around in bizarre costumes vogueing like Madonna and pulling faces. I don’t think it is fair is Candace goes home this week.
Nene and Tony were in the second group to find out if they were safe or in jeopardy. They are in jeopardy! So is the super famous Australian kid, Cody! Nene did not take the news well, letting out a burst of a laugh, then making a weird face and looking like she might cry. Speaking of her looks. Once again, I am not sure I can describe it. There are no pictures on her website. I think she is supposed to be Cruella DeVille. I’m not kidding. It’s Disney week, remember? It’s a big black and white ensemble and her wig is new, with black streaks in it. Continue reading
One of my commenters, Sarasally was a very bad girl and tried to post a link. The good news is that the link is very informative. Nene went on Dr. Oz because, mediawhore! And she told a story that makes a little more sense than the whole one and a half collapsed lungs story she told last night. Continue reading

Read through this one because it is juicy if you know what to look for. And the readers at TamaraTattles.com ALWAYS know what to look for!
NEW YORK – April 14, 2014 – Pacing to be the highest-rated season yet for the franchise, Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is serving up a triple dose of drama and fun with a three-part reunion beginning on Sunday, April 20 at 8pm ET/PT.

On last night’s RHOA finale, as well as WWHL, we were treated to a variety of versions of the Nene Leakes hospitalization story. At the time, I had a lot of questions, but Sunday night is my busiest blogger night and that is not the time to stop and do my research. So I did some this morning. Here are my thoughts on Nene’s hospitalization.
On November 18th, 2013 Nene was rushed to the hospital by Gregg. The scene we saw of them on the couch at their home last night chatting about her possibly needing to go to the hospital and Gregg trying to give her Alka Seltzer was all filmed after the season was done filming. None of that was real and was part of the possible cover story that Nene came up with to explain her hospitalization. At this point, we have no idea why Nene was really hospitalized, but the more she tries to tell the version of what happened she would like for us to believe, the more she screws it up. Continue reading
It seems the extra ninety minutes was just Bravo tacking on WWHL to the first airing of RHOA to force everyone to tape it. Works for me, it let’s me finish my blogging night earlier. This will probably take me longer to recap than the whole hour of the finale.
I think it makes sense to have a one on one with Nene since she was not on the episode much. Andy starts by asking about her health. I am really not buying what she is selling anymore. I generally don’t doubt anything that people say about their health. Their health is their business. Well wait now. This story is making sense I guess blood clots in the lungs and collapsed lungs. I didn’t know blood clots could make your lungs collapse, but I don’t have time to research that and get this up timely so we can talk.
Andy begins to discuss the reunion. Nene says that “people sometime try people over and over and over again,” Nene says that she doesn’t like Kenya but she is going to tell it how it is. Kenya kept trying Porsha. OMG They show what led up to it and Kenya is discussing some tabloid rumor with Andy and Porsha jumps in and Kenya waves her scepter in her direction (Cynthia is sitting in between them, Kenya is tellingly sitting first chair to Porsha’s last.) and tells her to shut up and stop interrupting her, just like Yolanda did on RHOBH and Brandi did on RHOBH. It was not major dis. It wasn’t like, oh I dunno, it wasn’t like she was calling her TRASHBOX a billion times in between shrieking CLOSE YOUR LEGS TO MARRIED MEN!. She was just dismissing her comment. Porsha grabs the scepter and jump up at Kenya like a thug in a cocktail dress. Continue reading
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

Ever since I posted that Porsha was fired from RHOA the Porsha stans have been blowing up my twitter saying it’s not true and trying to comment here in broken ebonics about her being the smartest person they know. When I finally addressed the bullshit rumors that people made up about the RHOA all banding together to save Porsha’s job, the Porsha stans on twitter nearly lost their damn minds. I can’t fathom anyone taking that rumor seriously other than the folks that think Porsha is a smart businesswoman.
So maybe, just maybe these fans can come to a place of acceptance if they hear a bit of news straight from the horse’s mouth. Today Essence ran an exclusive with Nene in which she talks about the physical assault on Kenya that happened at the reunion. And, um, I TOLD YOU SO! Continue reading
And she actually asks some interesting questions. Is she trying to get on Fashion Queens or something similar? What’s up with this?
UPDATE! Just saw a commercial for this episode of WWHL and ANDY BRINGS UP THE INCIDENT AT THE REUNION! Hopefully he lets the Porsha freaks understand she is no longer employed so I can stop getting hate tweets and such. :)
There is some crazy stuff floating around the blogs and tabloids this week. I appreciate that most of you emailed me or tweeted me to get my thoughts. The number of people asking questions has reached critical mass so I will address three of them here. But first, let’s review commenting rule #3.
3. I think I heard or read something once about…
Much like links, I don’t want to hear about what you heard or read somewhere else. Please comment on it there. I try to do my best to post facts along with my opinion. If you post some random shit you read “somewhere” people here start thinking I am rubber stamping someone else’s content. I don’t have time to verify other people’s assertions. If you read something earth shattering somewhere else, EMAIL ME and I will take a look at it. Otherwise comment wherever “somewhere else” is.
Rumor Number One: The RHOA have banned together to save Porsha’s job. Continue reading
We 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

I know I pissed a lot of you off when one of my first posts about Nene Leakes being on Dancing With The Stars was entitled, “How Long Until Nene Quits Dancing With The Stars?” It’s clear to me that when Nene went on Celebrity Apprentice, she thought she could win, but when it was clear that would not happen, and sticking it out would be hard, she quit.
This week on DWTS, Nene is on the bottom of the judges’ score board. There is also a partner swap which means she will likely not be dancing with her beloved Tony. This is a do or die week for Nene. It’s the week to go all out. So here are my observations of Nene this week. Continue reading
Last night after DWTS, Nene headed out to the biggest hotbed of paparazzi in L.A. Mr. Chow. Now here is the thing. This restaurant is where minor celebs go when they want to be photographed and filmed by TMZ and she was. She has gone there before for this very purpose. This was her plan. So why on earth did she get so wasted?
We certainly didn’t get the teary-eyed humbled version of Nene she presents on Dancing With the Stars. Nope. We got drunk and obnoxious Nene. When asked about the attack on Kenya at the reunion, Nene’s response was, ” She stupid. She need to fix her fake booty.” Continue reading
