Y’all remember Nene Leakes right? She used to be on a show called Real Housewives of Atlanta. Then she did six episodes of a game show. She is supposed to guest start on an upcoming episode of Fashion Police with another fashion icon, Margaret Cho. Because who doesn’t want to know what those two have to say about fashion?
Recently Nene was filming an episode of Jet to the Set. It’s a show filming for POP network (Home of Big Brother After Dark) . The premise of the show is that Carly Steel and Laurie Feltheimer travel around the country visiting various movie sets and exploring the restaurants and activities of each city as the cast does while they live on location. This week the ladies were in town to visit the set of the Hunger Games. I swear there is always a Hunger Games movie being filmed around here. The movie was filming at Sweetwater Creek this week.

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. Continue reading

I’m changing the Law wit the Po Po #Byewig #Girlbye
Um… I usually just laugh and laugh about the preponderance of Nenetards with her T-shirts on in between her trying to make “wayment” a word and the refusal to put an ‘h’ at the end of the word with.
But is this crossing the line? I’m feeling some kinda way about this. And these police officers… Thoughts? Continue reading
Y0u guys remember Nene Leakes? Come on, I am sure you do. She was that rich bitch on RHOA! You know the one who lived in rentals for every season she was on, rent likely paid by Bravo, with the husband who was ON THE LOCAL NEWS before they started the show as some dude who managed rental properties and did some shit he was not supposed to do?
Well now that Nene has taken out a mortgage on a house she has discovered that not everyone goes to Rent-To Own for furniture. She’s been to High Point, North Carolina where most middle income people go to buy DISCOUNT furniture.
Nene Leakes who finally has to buy her own furniture, has now of course declared herself an expert on the subject. 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

While we are all still busy gloating that Nene has burned her Bravo bridge (at least for now), you have to wonder what Nene has up her shoulder baring sleeve next. Those of us from Atlanta remember back before season one aired, that there was a news story about Nene and Gregg Leakes about their grifting ways. If I recall correctly, at that time Gregg was involved in some sort of rental property scam, allegedly. The Leakes seem to have a history of grifting and scamming their way through life. So I imagine that will continue in some way on a larger stage.
Nene actually has a REALLY good idea. Recently, on her Instagram Nene posted a picture of her at one of those Women’s Expo type of things. The caption said that she was going to go on a “So Nasty, So Rude” tour. It’s funny to me that she gets her “Neneisms” from things that Kenya says to her, but again, she’s using it to make 89 cents per T-Shirt sold, or whatever she makes. So, there is that. 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
The following post is a TAMARATATTLES EXCLUSIVE and should not be reposted on any site in its entirety. Please quote with a link to this post and give appropriate credit if you wish to discuss it on your website. I shall place a POX ON YOUR HOUSE AND THAT OF ALL OF YOUR FAMILIES if you fail to follow basic Internet laws regarding the information below.
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

Nene Leakes has arrived. Well, she is in LA to film To Tell The Truth. Preproduction started on Wednesday for those who are not Betty White. Nene and TTTT Host Anthony Anderson were on the set working on blocking and wardrobe and such today. Former NBA player and ESPN host Jalen Rose was also on the set. It seems like there may only be three judges this season, but there have always been four, so if it is only three that will be new.
Filming for the show is on July 13th – 15th and I am going to need all of my LA people to sign up for free tickets here to bring me the tea! There will be two shows filmed each day. The first one will probably be the most interesting. It’s super fun to go to these tapings I went to Family Feud once in Atlanta with Steve Harvey. There is a lot of wait time particularly if you are going to the second show and the first one runs late. Bring a big bottle of cold water because you may have to wait outside. Continue reading
I am currently sleeping with Big Brother. What I mean is I am up most every night until the last BB17 houseguest goes to bed because they have not one but TWO sociopaths this season and there is a potential for murder at any given moment. I can’t stop watching. So I have only been up for about an hour and I am trying to collect my thoughts on whatever the fuck Nene Leakes is doing. Because frankly, I don’t get it. And my sources are equally confused it would seem.
Let’s talk about her new “prime time gig with a legend.” Yesterday we were wondering if she knew what “prime time” meant and who she might consider a “legend.” Today, TMZ is reporting that she will be a panelist on yet another rebirth of the 1950s game show To Tell The Truth to be aired on primetime on ABC at some future date. This will be important later. For those younger than a billion years old, To Tell The Truth is a game show where four panelists are presented with three people all claiming to be the same person. One is telling the truth and the other two are lying. The panelists each have a certain amount of time to think of intelligent questions on the fly to contestants two of whom are trying to lie. Then the panelists individually make their final guess about who is telling the truth. One of Betty White’s husband was one of the creators of the original show. Betty White is “the legend” that Nene will be working with. So Nene is two for two with the primetime and legend clues. So far so good. Continue reading
So who buys a multimillion dollar house and then quits the job that is their primary source of income before the furniture is delivered? Nene Leakes would like for us to believe that it is her. It doesn’t make sense to me, but it is Nene we are talking about. I have been frantically trying to get in touch with my sources. So it may take me a bit to get the whole story.
But let me explain a few things that have been going on in the background. As I told you on my exclusive on June 9th that other sites are apparently calling their exclusive today, there are a LOT of casting changes possible for RHOA Season 8. I have NOT confirmed Kim Fields or any of the other three women being tested, nor have I confirmed that Claudia Jordan, Phaedra Parks or Porsha Williams are definitely out. I have confirmed that Nene, Kenya, Kandi and Cynthia were all offered contracts which I expected them to accept. Nene clearly did not sign hers yet. She may not like the terms. Or perhaps things with Gregg are not going as well as she likes to proclaim. Remember this season is supposed to be more focused on personal relationships. Or perhaps with the new women supposedly testing so well, the new production team decided Nene’s salary was not worth what she brings to the show anymore and they could pick up the new women for less money.
I did not jump on the bandwagon confirming any housewives departure and stated that testing was still ongoing and anything could happen. Claudia, Phaedra and Porsha were certainly on the bubble based on the information leaked to me about the other four women who were being tested. Whatever happened with Nene puts all sorts of possibilities back into play.
UNLESS, this is a ploy by Nene for more money. If it is she is playing a very dangerous game. That house is going to be hard to cool without a Bravo check. And if she has pissed off Bravo and the Road Trip with Kim Biermann thing is off the table, she is well and truly fucked. Time will tell. I am working on it as we speak.
