A lot of times when people try to send me some tea, they can’t seem to be bothered to email me, they simply try to post a comment on a post. Yesterday afternoon, someone with a nonsensical name with a nonsensical email tried to comment on a Chateau Sheree post from months ago that. “Chateau Sheree is infested with cops.” I found the comment interesting so I went to check it out. I contacted a couple real housewives in the hood that keep in touch with me to verify. Ironically, both of them were at urgent care. It seems that this crap I’ve got and affectionately call “ebola” is making the rounds all over town and the fancypants crowd were all at the doctors. Thankfully, one was leaving and swung by to take the above picture and both checked with neighbors who said no one was there all day at all.
At any rate, it was a great reminder that I have not used any of the random pictures y’all send me on the “progress” in months. As the four year anniversary approaches of Sheree buying a perfectly good house and bulldozing it, we seem to be inching closer to a habitable house for the churren to have their skatin’ rink in (perhaps that explains why nearly every room is in a turret?) and for Sheree to sit in her lieberry and read Shakespeare. Pauses for Sheree fans to correct my spelling by using their Sit n Spell. Continue reading
Okay, it’s time for two long hours of Kandi’s wedding. The Bravo Buffoonery continues with Bravo adding two minutes to the DVR in front of the show and two minutes behind. WTF? We begin at the rehearsal dinner and none of the grooms or groomsmen are there. Kandi calls Todd and they argue on the phone while the dinner guests gossip. Kandi looks like a major fool. I’m not sure I can do two hours of this tomfoolery. Mama Joyce and Kandi speak their family language discussing the pre-nup. We need subtitles. Apollo tells Todd this is partly his fault. I’ve said it many times Kandi had no business marrying today. She doesn’t understand that marriage is a partnership. If she doesn’t want to go into a business arrangement with Todd, she had no business marrying him. Marriage is a business deal. Many of Todd’s groomsmen tell Todd not to sign it.
Mama Joyce goes to Kandi’s dad to get him to tell Kandi not to get married without the pre-nup. Mama Joyce is gloating in her talking heads. Todd, you need to run! RUN NOW! Save yourself, Todd! Todd’s mom says they need to due a post-nup and get this stuff straightened out. Todd tells the boys he can’t live without Kandi. Yes you can, Todd. Yes.You.Can.
Todd goes over to the house to fix things with Kandi. Todd says if she fixes the 30 day thing and the will issue then they can move forward. Kandi agrees. Fun fact: Stephanie Casteel was one of Sheree’s lawyers that she used to set up her shell LLC. She had to testify in court that Sheree had some sort of ownership of the Chateau. Stephanie is super nice. I hope she eventually got paid. But I doubt it. Allegedly.
Todd has a 17-year-old daughter? Is this news? I don’t recall knowing this info. Is that his only daughter? I thought he had one closer to Riley’s age. Oh! I think we all thought one of Riley’s play dates was his daughter once. That must be the source of my confusion.
The bridesmaids are getting ready. Tasia brought a back up dress because no one has been fitted by Reco and they still don’t have dresses. Kandi had programs for her wedding. This is a new thing, I reckon. I think my nephew had one at his wedding. I seem to recall the whole foot-washing thing being on there.
Kandi is prettier without make-up in my opinion. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

Chateau Sheree March 2014
What better than a Chateau Sheree update to celebrate April Fools Day! This is an actual real update that I just saved for today since today has the whole fool theme. Before we talk about current “progress” on the perpetually incomplete structure, let’s see how far it’s come over the years.
The story begins on December 30, 2010 when the property is purchased by Sheree’s mama, Thelma for $319,000. At this point there was a two story fixer upper already on the property. Eventually, there would be a partial demolition on the property. Why a partial? Who knows, but it certainly set the glacial pace of things to follow. The good news for the people who wait at the bus stop right there on the corner is that part of what was demolished was a bathroom wall leaving a toilet exposed to the street. So if they just had to go, during this time all they had to do was walk right up to that toilet! It was a service to the neighborhood really. Continue reading
Well my feral readers, we have made it through another year. And as usual I, and sometimes a select few of you, have sent some folks into a frenzy that required them to post that they we leaving us, and that we would never, ever, EVER be getting back together. And yet, I can’t remember a single one of them. Can you? I can’t remember much of last week at this point, to be honest. So I decided to take a look at my stats and see what our top five posts of 2013 were. It’s kind of a strange bag. Are you ready for a walk down memory lane?
NUMBER 5: Kenya Moore Bids Farewell to RHOA.
Yeah, okay so I was wrong about that one. I prefer to think of it as wishful thinking. But you have to admit that Kenya Moore bid a fond farewell to every cast member, pet, cameraman, member of the press, and each and every one of us by name in her final blog last season. What was the point of all of that if she wasn’t really leaving? To be honest, Kenya is starting to grow on me this season. Just a touch. Continue reading
TamaraTattles makes every effort to insure the publication of factual information. In a post made on August, 15, 2013 entitled Chateau Sheree is in Foreclosure we relied on a source who purported to be a licensed real estate agent for the detailed information that supported the contention that the property we refer to as “Chateau Sheree” is in foreclosure. Our source had detailed information about loan amounts and cited other documents available to real estate professionals that presumably inform them before the public records update of properties available for purchase. At the time of publication, we believed these documents to be true and accurate. Continue reading
While I have been offline the people who actually live in the neighborhood of Chateau Sheree have been furiously emailing me. If you Google Lake Forrest Drive ( I believe her home is at 5210 Lake Forrest Drive… I NEVER DISCLOSED IT UNTIL SHE PUT The address of MY SHACK ON THE INTERNET) but whatever. EVERYONE is mocking her while wishing she would get the fuck out of the neighborhood (which she has. She lives in an apt WAY WAY WAY out of the school district she was trying to stay in, Gee I hope they don’t find out.)
Anyway, the news is twofold. Not a damn thing has been done. However in her defense it has rained so much this summer that our gardens are literally rotting. IT HAS RAINED A FUCKING LOT.
This has caused mudslides on her road. So Lake Forrest is shut down for at least a year while they try to put in a retaining wall. Continue reading
August of 2012
Well boys and girls, it’s time again to check in on the goings on at Chateau Sheree. The infamous property purchased way back in December of 2010 has been the bane of the neighborhood for almost three years now. But I got an update today!(Now yesterday 7/8/13) Could it be? Will this be the Christmas that the whole family enjoys their spacious home? Click through to see all the changes from August 2012 to today. Continue reading
I’ve actually lost count of how many times I’ve gone to court with Sheree Whitfield over the last few months. Yesterday was either the fourth or the fifth time across two counties. And hopefully, that was the last time. I joke with my attorney of turning to a life of crime just because I like her. But if I am being honest, I hope that the only time I see her in the future is from the comfort of my couch watching her on HLN. It’s much less stressful and expensive that way.
Yesterday’s court appearance was bizarre. It did not help that I have forgotten to take my crazy pill the day before so my anxiety was through the roof, and I LEFT MY XANAX AT HOME. In Atlanta people that live inside the perimeter (ITP) perhaps rightly claim some sort of smug superiority to those of us poor degenerates who live beyond I-285. I live OTP because I don’t like driving downtown where every street is named Peachtree something and the streets are a one way maze that I am not city savvy enough to handle. Nervertheless, me in full on wide-eyed panic attack navigate the mean street to arrive at the courthouse on time.
My attorney Ashley Merchant was conferring with Sheree’s attorney du jour. It is always interesting to me see the opposing attorneys smiling and laughing before court and then getting up and going for the jugular once the hearing starts. Then going back to very cordial conversations. There was no sign of Sheree or Tierra and eventually her lawyer called them to see if they were going to show. Sheree did. Tierra did not. Because Tierra has a job, and a life, and has better things to do than spend days on end in court over nonsense. Continue reading
It’s sort of a mixed bag for Nene Leakes this week. The New Normal, has been cancelled after a borderline season. I though perhaps Ryan Murphy might be able to eek out one more season, but alas, it was not the case. Glee, on the other hand, I believe, for reasons no one understands, has two more seasons! I could not believe that when I read it and I am still not sure it is true. Since the primary cast graduated, the show has been filming things in NYC with them as well as the new kids in the high school scenes. Nene is on that occasionally for a hot second. Once Glee had the split in locations, Nene’s already small role was greatly reduced. It remains to be seen if she will even be on the next two seasons, but given Ryan’s gay crush on her, it is likely she will be making at least limited appearances. Continue reading
Andy Cohen is trying his hand at primetime tonight with a one-on-one interview with Nene Leakes under the umbrella of his Watch What Happens Live show. This will get great ratings and likely result in more Andy during primetime. Which could be a good thing if he has really good guests and let’s them talk about production.
One of the first things out of Nene’s mouth is, “Is this going to be girl talk?” Let me just stop here to say that there are all types of gay men. Almost every type is wonderful. Almost. But all of those types can be divided into two broad categories. Let’s call the first type the “Miss Lawrence” type. Lawrence refers to himself as Miss Lawrence and dabbles in cross-dressing, at least when it comes to footwear. The other type is the Anderson Cooper type, more masculine than feminine, educated, refined, successful. Andy is in the latter category. He wishes he was Anderson Cooper. He wants to be respected even when he is playing pin the boobies on the housewives with D list celebrities. You don’t refer to him as a girl. He was visibly offended by her remark (although she surely had no intention to do so) and it took him a minute to recover and resume the ass kissing opening dialogue he had prepared. Continue reading
