Fashion Police/ E!
This is not something I usually recap, and I am still getting used to this new set up (it’s trying my last nerve) but since that one chick that used to be on RHOA is on it, I thought I should torture you guys with a recap. I was up all night last night and after catching up on some decent programming, tries to fall asleep watching the VMAs. It was a total shit show. Kanye West stood on stage while people (who I am assuming were paid to participate) applauded him wildly for whatever it is that he does while he stood there in a giant T-shirt and some scrunched up pants too horrid to describe accurately and the talked about himself for ten minutes or so. His soliloquy ended with him announcing that he will be running for POTUS in 2010. I am not making this up. There were ZERO fashions at this event, only costumes. Perhaps Melissa Rivers understood this when she invited Nene Leakes and Margaret Cho to discuss fashion. Because, really?
On to the show…
First up they talk about T’aylor Swift’s sequined athletic gear. Mararet cracks a lot of jokes. Nene hates it. She disagrees with Brad who said it was great and he loved the shoes. Nene hates the shoes. Giulanna says she has seen Nene in those shoes on her Instagram. Nene says she has all the shoes, Nene says she doesn’t want to see Taylor looking like she is about to walk on the treadmill. I agree with her there. Giulianna agrees with Brad and loves it.

I didn’t realize until today that I missed the Blood Sweat & Heels episode last week because they stuck Watch What Happens Live on the end of the reunion messing up my DVR schedule. I already have two shows taping at 10. I hate when Andy tacks WWHL on where it doesn’t belong.
We start this episode of the reunion with Andy bringing up the challenge on the last reunion about donating $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Kenya did as she said she would and Nene did not. Nene says she will do it when she gets ready. Kenya says that really gets under her skin. She talks about being such a rich bitch with all of this extra money but she wants to be petty when it comes to a charitable donation for children. Nene says that she feels like Kenya is trying to “make a mockery out of it.” Nene questions, “Who puts their check on social media?” Um how about someone who was challenged to make the donation on national television. A better question is why would a person claim they were going to write a check for 20K and challenge a colleague to MATCH it, and then never write the check even after the colleague did match it? Nene goes on the “she is right!” trip she has been on for the whole reunion.
Next we discuss, “the new Cynthia.” Someone asks Phaedra about her vicious comments about Cynthia having bills and legal cases all over Atlanta and they ask why she would say such personal and vicious things. Phaedra says it is because Cynthia was spreading rumors about Mr. Chocolate at a time when she was most vulnerable Girl, please. It was your husband who was spreading those rumors and Cynthia brought them to you. She is not your BFF, she had no bond to you to prevent her from discussing what Apollo was saying with whomever she pleased. Cynthia says Phaedra could haves squashed it am moved on just like she did with Nene when she called her a “head doctor.” Phaedra forgave Nene because she apologized. LOL. Naw, Phaedra overlooked Nene’s jabs at her because they both needed some backup this season. Cynthia says she apologized in the Philippines and it was not accepted. Phaedra somehow goes on to say how many jobs she has. Again. Where are these jobs? Has anyone seen them? And how does she do them all when she is flying around to churches trying to sell her etiquette book and passing the love offering plate? Allegedly. Hell even her charities are suspect according to those in attendance at the last one. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE! Tamara Tattles Tea on the Real Housewives of Atlanta 2015 Reunion! Please use excerpts and provide links to this source when quoting.
Y’all are terribly impatient when it comes to RHOA Reunion Tea! It takes me awhile to synthesize my information and get the best idea of what actually went down from the many voices who are dropping some hints. Some sources just love to make you ask every little detail and that is so tiring at this point that I can’t be bothered. I just going to go with who seems to have taken the worst beating this season. The good news is, the top three recipients of a good old RHOA read are all on Team Beast!
But first the seating situation. On the left couch, we have Kenya next to Andy, then Cynthia then Kandi, On the right couch we have Nene , Phaedra and then Claudia!
Later when Porsha came out, Claudia moved to the Team Pretty plus Kandi couch and Porsha sat with Team Beast.
Also, despite the Asian themed set, I was told that the filming was indeed at The Biltmore again. That does not look like The Biltmore to me, but… apparently, it is.
As for how the ladies looked, I heard great thing about everyone except Porsha who was dressed for her other job if you know what I mean. I’m told that Nene got it right for the reunion. I’m not sure how much faith we should have in that report but in the spirit of fairness I’m letting you know that reports are that Nene looked good. The usual “did she have some work done?” rumor went to Kandi. Waist training? New Boobs? Good Spanx? Whatever it was, she got good reviews as well. In fact, everyone was at their best except for the peachless one. Continue reading

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.
Oh God, I had somehow blocked out the last episode of this show and was sitting here wondering where we were going tonight. I completely forgot the TV shrink chasing Nene into the parking lot. I’m not sure who looks dumber, the shrink or Nene sashsaying away in her Pep Boys uniform. I think she probably just had to work a late shift doing some oil changes and stuff in her coveralls.
Thank you Kandi! That is just what I was saying. Why is this fool chasing after Nene? Let her go and the other girls can actually hash some issues out. By the way I love what Kandi is wearing for a change. This is something I would wear.
Nene thinks that the shrink should lose his license. This is so hysterical. Her reasoning is that a good counselor would not allow everyone to speak their truth about how Nene treats people. Nene sees this as “Gang Up on Nene Day!” Clearly she doesn’t understand that counseling is about understanding YOUR behavior in interpersonal relationships and working on yourself. In group or couples counseling it is about listening to how others perceive you. Nene get into her black Range Rover and rolls off.
Back in the session, Kenya points out that Nene does not have the tools to handle when more than one person comes at her, yet the rest of them have dealt with similar situations multiple times. Especially when they first come on the show.
Somehow this therapy session becomes all about Porsha and I can’t even deal with it. Continue reading

Here we are back for episode seventeen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is it me or does it seem a lot longer than that. I guess it is all of those Sundays off for awards shows and football games. I am so read for this season to be over.
We start with Phaedra bitching about having to drive all the way to Duluth to film with Porsha. That is Phaedra’s own damn fault. Since Nene and Phaedra will only film with each other and possibly each other, Phaedra is stuck driving out to the boondocks. It does seems like a long ride for Phaedra to do a recap of Phaedra’s meeting with Cynthia. Phaedra implies that CYNTHIA is a plus sized model. Read that again. Phaedra calls Cynthia fat. She also talks about Cynthia having fibroids and dry vagina. Phaedra calls the other women hyena and Satan’s spawn. Then Phaedra and Porsha “pray” over sme “food.”
Todd and Kandi are talking about Kandi’s grandfather Tituss Burruss. I guess this means she is related to Tituss Burress the Broadway actor from Georgia who is going to be on WWHL tonight. Interesting. Todd and Kandi try to do their therapy homework but it doesn’t go well.
Claudia goes over to visit Gary With The Tea from Dish Nation. Gary lives in a nice building downtown. In fact I think I know someone who lives there. Claudia goes to ask him about doing stand-up. Claudia is feeling a little stifled as the straight man, so to speak, on Dish Nation. She wants to be able to do a little unbridled comedy on her own at a comedy club. Later, Claudia goes to meet with Luenell to discuss her comedy routine. Continue reading
It’s time for Real Housewives of Atlanta and frankly, I’m not sure what the storyline we are supposed to be looking forward to is. More Kandi and Todd marital disharmony? More Mr. Chocolate innuendo? I’m bored and it hasn’t even started yet. Meanwhile, I’m on injured reserve from three hours of really hard digging in the yard. So bear with me as usual with the homophones and typos. I’m about to fall over.
It’s time for Cynthia to download Peter on what went down at the Mr. Chocolate dinner last week. Meanwhile Porsha and Phaedra are at The Palm loading up on free food to go. I think the scene with Porsha and Phaedra was another “pick-up” as most of Phaedra’s scenes are this season. It was filmed in mid to late November. It is hysterical they are sitting there in some kind of boob revealing formal wear in an empty restaurant in an off hour when most people will show up in business casual. Did Phaedra did say about Kenya, ” She can’t help but bark?” I love how both whores (allegedly) are going in on Kenya who was not even the messenger in this instance. Cynthia pointed out Phaedra’s whorish ways and Claudia outed Porsha participating in the world’s oldest profession, yet both of them have hard on for Kenya. Interesting. Phaedra refers to Cynthia and Kenya as “ace boon coons” which apparently Bravo has recently decided can’t be said on the air without bleeping. Oh and they actually aired Porsha and Phaedra ordering two entrees each. I’m told it didn’t stop their these two loaded up their purses like Mama June at a Golden Corral. Porsha and Phaedra talk about Ebola and Africans. Porsha starts trash talking Kandi to try to make ground with Phaedra. Continue reading

I started this post writing about what is wrong with Real Housewives of Atlanta and how it has jumped the shark. I thought about how it could be fixed. How to save the franchise. I thought about how to make it more interesting, ways to make it better. But, very quickly in, I was reminded that we shouldn’t be watching this crap at all. Seriously. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? But first, here is what I thought we should do back when I was still drinking the Kool-Aid. At the end I will link you back to my thoughts three years ago, before the crazy came.
There are too many women on this show. I have said this forever, when there are more than five housewives, it’s hard to get into any of their storylines. Hell, we don’t even notice anymore when Nene is not on at all.
There is was too much recapping of the previous episode. We get it the wives told their husband about the previous week’s forced dinner where someone was a cunt. The wives who weren’t in some scenes the previous week were filled in on what happened. We don’t need the first 25% of the show to be a recap. That’s what I am for. Continue reading
