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

Did Phaedra Parks Follow The Judge’s Order to Re-sit For Her Deposition?

Phaedra Parks Accused All Sorts of Nonsense by Very Troubled Woman

It’s hard to say.  On Friday, October 10, State Judge Carla E. Brown issued a court order requiring Phaedra Parks to sit for a second deposition with Angela Stanton’s Lawyer, James Radford.  As we all know, Phaedra has been gadding about the country under the guise of a book tour in recent days. The following Monday, Phaedra jetted off to LA to film the Ellen show on Tuesday and hawk her book from the pulpit of some church on Wednesday. On Thursday she was in NYC with Ayden trying to take  him to meet Andy Cohen in his office. It looks like that happened last Friday. She appeared to be in NYC to appear on Dr. OZ.

My reading of the court order indicates she had ten days, not ten business days so today is the big day.

This morning someone sent me this statement from Angela Stanton on her Facebook page. I cannot find it myself, but I am Facebook impaired. Here is what the screenshot said, “Getting ready for a long, drawn out day with lawyers, court reporters and stenographers…some people will never learn until it’s too late. I actually feel sorry for those who go out of their way to harm you & don’t realize how much they are harming themselves in the process.” Continue reading

Phaedra Parks Goes to Church

Oh for the love of all that is holy. This here is one hot mess. Phaedra’s book is about virgins being prepared? This woman is insane. If the pastor’s level of literacy is any indication, can’t none of those people read.

If you are interested in the parable of the ten virgins, you can click through for the entire scripture. Continue reading

Phaedra Parks on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

It’s time for Phaedra’s appearance on The Ellen Show to talk about her divorce and other things. First can we talk about this thing around her neck? Is that black fringey mess part of the dress? or part of the necklace? It certainly is the focal point of my attention. It appears that it is part of the necklace. She is wearing a red satin  dress that looks like something a 12-year-old would wear to a Christmas party There is even a giant bow on the back. She brings Ellen a picnic basket full of “southern items” and a #FixItJesus t-shirt and of course her book. With the picnic basket she looks like Little Red Riding Hood. I can’t believe she was styled by Shun Melson.  That dress makes her look as big as a house.

Phaedra says she really wanted to come on Ellen’s show because she has seen Ellen do some tough interviews and handle them compassionately and gracefully. She thinks she could have a little southern belle in her if she wore some pearls and a little skirt. Ellen jokes that is what she has on under her clothes. Continue reading

Parks v. Stanton Update

Phaedra face2

 

UPDATE: I read the court’s order for Phaedra to comply with the depo.  The topics are narrowed to two. One, her agreement with Augustus Publishing resulting in her dropping her suit against them. And two, any “non-privileged”  questions regarding Apollo and his “alleged” criminal activities.  Which is pretty much the entire case more or less. So the depo might be interesting. Unfortunately, the agreement with Augustus has a confidentiality agreement involved. This means that the court will seal the depo when it is entered into evidence. So we probably won’t ever get to read it.

In other news, Phaedra is on her way to LA.  Who wants to go to the taping of Ellen and report back? :) No depo today, tomorrow,  Wednesday or probably Thursday so I suppose she will squeeze it in on Friday or Monday of next week?  That Phaedra always pushing things to the last minute.

I’m getting really bored with this drama. One would think that Phaedra would have better things to do being a single mother with two young sons, filming a TV show,  selling her workout videos, hawking her etiquette book to the less genteel, running a busy entertainment law practice representing celebrities, embalming all those bodies of humans and pets alike, taking her prayer cloth on a countrywide tour of religious congregations, making talk show appearances, building moats and gates around her white house, and now filing for divorce from her felonious husband. One would think so. But one would be wrong.  Because more than two years and countless attorneys later, Parks v. Stanton is still a thing. One has to wonder how long cases can drag on especially with and uncooperative plaintiff.

I got tired of transcribing the ridiculous excuse for a deposition this summer. I got tired of waiting for the plaintiff’s response to the defense’s motion to compel, which turned up last month. It was equally as ridiculous as the “deposition.”  Plaintiff’s attorney, who must be dying to jump ship like  the others before him have,  responded by saying that Phaedra did answer all relevant questions and that Defendant’s attorney was trying to make the case about Apollo.  Isn’t Apollo a big part of the case? The alleged libel of Phaedra is that Angela wrote a book that said that Phaedra was involved in Apollo’s criminal mess, right? If this was happening on a TV show we’d all be screaming about the absurdity of the storyline. But it’s not a TV show. This is actually going on in a court of law. Over two years. Continue reading

Phaedra Finally Admits She is Divorcing Apollo

But this seemed like true love!

But this seemed like true love!

In the lead up to Phaedra Parks appearance on The Ellen Show next week, her  press representative, Steve Honig has reportedly told E! News exclusively, “[She] has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage.”  And that boys and girls is the shortest exclusive in tabloid history. It’s not even a complete sentence.  And it’s also bizarre. Does anyone believe this is an amicable divorce?

I got several emails about this turn of events ( Thanks! They are much appreciated) and so I went to look for some sort of statement and it’s a sentence fragment given to one site? Does this seem weird to anyone else?

Is Phaedra going on The Ellen Show to announce her divorce? Is that the southern belle way according to Phaedra Parks? This is all kind of ridiculous. Continue reading

Phaedra Parks to Appear on Ellen!?

Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.

Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.

UPDATE: IT’S OFFICIAL: Phaedra is listed on Ellen’s website as a guest with Heidi Klum! Waiting for hell to freeze over next…

Phaedra’s publicist has confirmed that Phaedra will film an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on October 14th that will air on October 15th. According to a statement, “Phaedra  will be very candid about what happened with Apollo, her life now and plans for the future.” Her publicist has indicated that WWHL had not approached her for an interview.

Phaedra will likely be about as candid and Teresa was on WWHL.  For someone who can’t give a deposition in her own case, where she is the plaintiff, I can’t imagine her doing anything but trying to hawk her book. I cannot for the life of me figure out why Ellen would book her. She rarely has any Reality TV personalities on the show. Frankly, none of this makes sense to me.  We shall see what happens.  If it happens, it should be interesting. Continue reading

Is Phaedra Parks Hooked on Pills?

RHOA Phaedra Face

I do not do too many blind items on this site, but I do enjoy reading them at Crazy Days and Nights. The guy that runs the site is an entertainment lawyer who seems to have an endless supply of sources with credible information. By the time he reveals his blinds, you find yourself saying, “Oh, that makes perfect sense now.” Today he revealed this blind he first published on February 26th.

Blind Items Revealed

February 26, 2014This Southeast based Housewife is popping pills almost constantly and rarely shows up for work and when she does show up just sleeps on the floor for an hour or two before leaving.

Phaedra Parks Update: Phortress by Phaedra?

Phaedra's house is white now.

Phaedra’s house is white now.

This post is another TamaraTattles.com EXCLUSIVE. Thanks to those who do not steal the story but instead use an excerpt and a clearly identified link to this post. Those who do not could suffer from any number of maladies from incontinence to toe fungus to congophilic angiopathy. Make a good choice fellow entertainment writers.

Let’s face it. The Real Housewives of ANYWHERE make terrible neighbors.  But the Real Housewives of Atlanta have taken it to an art form. Remember when Kim Zolciak was in that house she rented from Kendra Davis?  There was a time when Kim had security guards hanging out on her front lawn to keep Kendra and her husband, the landlords, away from her. When she moved she took most of the landscape with her (because she planted it, dammit!) and gave it away to her new neighbors in the surrounding condos!  Kenya Moore had landlord issues as well and of course both of those cases the cameras would invade the neighborhood and film all the drama. Hell, Kim had a huge wedding in her back yard and the cops were called. Sheree Whitfield had neighbors MOVE OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD over the massive over construction that never ends on the monstrosity of what may, one day, some how be, Chateau Sheree.  I’ve lost count of the years that has been going on.

Up until recently, Phaedra Parks has managed to get along with her neighbors fairly well. Then in April of 2013 Phaedra and Phamily moved into a nice quiet cul-de-sac. It’s off to itself, and not officially part of any subdivision. Just five very nice houses in a very convenient location. Then filming started. Last season, the black van that supposedly picked everyone up at Nene’s for the Savannah trip actually picked everyone up house to house. All of the “who was late to the pick-up time” was entirely fabricated. Neighbors say that bus was in the cul-de-sac filming Phaedra getting on the bus for two hours. Why? Who knows. But it was not really the housewives arrivals that were late it was the long drawn out filming of everyone getting on the bus. In fact that waiting scene was probably a reshoot afterward because by the time the bus actually left it was quite late, which is why they arrived in Savannah so late.

But last year’s filming was pretty tame at Phaedra’s. This year has not been. Between the filming crews and all the comings and goings and book tours, and side pieces and malfunctioning security alarms and police, the baby sitters, the nannies, the overnight nannies, the stylists, the make up people and on and on the neighborhood is not such a peaceful place anymore.

Peachless Porsha Comes Clean, And Much More RHOA Tea!

RHOA Porsha No Peach2

Oh look, Porsha has an announcement to make! You remember the announcement, the one I made here in May?  She even used the exact same wording stating on Instagram today, “No more peach for me, but I still love checking in with my girls #Blessed #SomethingMajor #JustHeretoSlay #TeamPorsha”  As I said again in June,  Porsha and Nene were not given full contracts on “Pick Up Day” at the end of season six.  Porsha was being retested and her contract held pending her court charges with Kenya.  Nene was being Nene and trying to dictate who she would and would not film with but it seems she reconsidered.

Speaking of Kenya, it looks like this season Phaedra tries to physically assault her with her pocket-book after the topic of Phaedra’s cheating on Apollo is brought up. According to the explosive trailer, Phaedra is accused of sleeping with “Some African Man Named Mr. Chocolate.”  Hmmm Mr. Chocolate, Mr. President? Interesting coincidence no? Especially since the streets have been talking all summer long.  Oh my!  Also they have a clip of Apollo storming through the house screaming at Phaedra about “taking everything from her.” which with a little help from TMZ it sounds like they are going to make look like it happened on the day Apollo didn’t show up for jail. Unfortunately, that did not happen that way.  In the clip you can see the Comcast van, just as I told you there to work on the security alarm, which is why the police showed up when Apollo was not even in the state.

Court Status Updates for Bravo Personalities

What was wrong with peach?

This is Phaedra’s house.

It’s time for a round-up of several cases involving Bravo personalities… We may even have a few more charges coming for some new ones! Um Yay?  This is really starting to bore me actually.

From Atlanta:

Yes, there was a trial date set for last week in Phaedra’s case against Angela Stanton.  And no it didn’t happen. As much as you and I would love for there to be a trial, that was never Phaedra’s intention. This is the second time a date has been set and the second time a flurry of motions have been exchanged by the attorneys on both sides.  Eventually, Phaedra will get tired of this game and a settlement will be reached. I have a feeling Phaedra will not like the settlement.

In other Phaedra news, she is busy whitewashing things. Literally. Phaedra’s peach house was completely repainted white (with gray trim) last week. She’s still working on getting the new gate installed. That project seems to have stalled. A white stucco(ish) house is not really a grand idea in Georgia. You may have heard of our red Georgia clay. It manages to find its way onto all sorts of things. Besides, I really liked the peach color.

Anyway, Phaedra is off on a two state book tour. Because, apparently, casual followers of the show still buy in to the whole “southern belle” routine. Her fans were never very bright to start with…

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.
