Marlo, Glamping in Gucci
The RHOA are all done glamping and back home safely. So I feel comfortable revealing exactly where they went now. I didn’t want to be responsible for any crazies heading to the woods to find them. Here is what TamaraTattles Sources have revealed about their adventure. The RHOA went to Banning Mills. If you are one of my few Married At First Sight readers, this place is familiar to you. Last season, if you recall, instead of wasting money on a trip to a winery or someplace romantic, they sent David and Ashley to Banning Mills for one final couples building activity. It did not go well.
Bannings Mill is a whopping 45 minutes outside of Atlanta. It is most used as a corporate retreat and the focus is heavily on team building activities. The women did not do any tent camping but they did stay in the treehouse rooms. You can see those in the first picture here. They all crossed the long bridge to go to one treehouse room for the photo. The treehouse rooms are the nicest accommodations there, but they do sort of wiggle around and they are not in any way a luxury room. Bannings Mill is really pretty and great for hiking, but these ladies spent most of their time doing scary activities that rely on trusting their team.

As TamaraTattles.com first exclusively reported, The Real Housewives of Atlanta are on a camping trip.
I am fortunate enough to have people sending me photos of the camping trip. The interesting thing is their interpretations of what they have seen on snapchats. I’m not sure they are watching the same ones as there have been quite a few. One researcher says, “They were laughing and having fun. The tell is that Kenya is with Sheree and Marlo.” This I want to believe. The other was unsure who Kenya was hanging out with in the very beginning and is hoping that these three are together. I’ll keep you updated as more news rolls in.
Everyone reports that the trip seems to be going along in a very lighthearted way. However, it’s Kandi who is doing most of the narrating and Kandi is always upbeat and tries to stay out of the drama. But if you press her, like Porsha did recently, you are going to have a problem.
We also saw the ladies get off to what appeared to be a late start (shocking!) that began at least in part with a meeting at the Chateau Sheree construction site.
Before we move on to the rest of the photos, is that Kenya’s hand on Phaedra’s shoulder? Is she playing nice with the dark side???

As Tamara Tattles was the first and only site to exclusively report, the Real Housewives of Atlanta (and some unexpected friends) are on a camping trip this weekend. And it sure seems like it was quite the struggle to wrangle the ladies yesterday.
But first, Let’s start with Friday night, in the photo above you can see Kandi and Marlo at Kandi’s R&B showcase featuring her two groups that she has been producing, Glamour, and Next. There was another performer at this showcase named Hazel Renee. Hazel is a young woman from Detroit and she is also on the camping trip as Kenya’s plus one. Kenya is referring to her as “her sister.” Is she related? Is this a homegirl from Detroit type thing? Alas my friends, I don’t know everything. I do know that Kenya doesn’t have a sister and this young lady seems young enough to be her daughter. I love that Kenya is there supporting Kandi and the bond that I keep noticing throughout filming. Kenya and Kandi as friends is something we haven’t really seen before. Unlike all the folks screaming about having the same people on the seasons over and over, I can’t say I agree. We have new relationships sprinkled with some new faces this season and I have a good feeling about the upcoming season. That said, I’m always hopeful for things that seem impossible. Just yesterday I checked TJMaxx to see if maybe they got an excess lot of Hermès or Bvlgari perfume. I like to live in a place where anything could still happen in my life. Because otherwise, what’s the point. If we knew, with all certainty, that our lives were only going to be about endless shelves of Justin Beiber perfume at TJMaxx, we’d never get out of bed. Dare to dream with me, people. It’s going to be a great season!

Well, um everyone was there. And by everyone I mean the housewives plus potential housewives, Lena, Sheree, and Mallorie. Lena is the one who had been wanting to get married on the show for a few seasons now. It’s starting to look like this could be her year. Mallorie has been called in to film with Cynthia and support her through the divorce proceedings and her move to the new lake house.
First, check out the step and repeat. First of all, what the hell is up with the housewives and their obsession with the step and repeat? It’s not a stand alone thing. It is a backdrop for a red carpet event that has sponsors. If there is no red carpet for celebrity arrivals, it’s just a dumb sign that makes for a crappy backdrop. It makes even less sense in this setting since it’s just a big vinyl sign that says Phaedra multiple times and has a photo of her book. There is absolutely nothing on the sign that mentions what the charity does. Much like Phaedra’s Pfoundation Phlyers, it just looks like an advertisement for whatever Phaedra is selling.
Next, see that lady holding up the Phaedra shirt? I received several photos of the event and she was the sole person in each booth buying a product. From what I could tell, turnout was quite low.
According to Daily Mail Linnethia Monique Leakes, was hit with a Federal Tax Lien on July 22 in Georgia court. The IRS wants a total of $824,366.01 in back taxes for the year 2014, according to court documents. How could she possibly owe that much in taxes? Well, in 2014 she was paid well under a million dollars by RHOA, but also received a six figure income from DWTS where she placed seventh on the show. She also had income from her role on Cinderella that year and got an advance on her clothing line which also began in 2014. And she did a few other paid appearances and sold a bunch of t-shirts and crap. In nearly every one of those instances, Nene was paid as an independent contractor which means she got the checks with no taxes taken out and received a copy of the 1099 which was sent to the IRS by the employers. I guess she thought she just didn’t need to file taxes.
According to my calculations, using the tax amount as the known variable, Nene make approximately $2.1 million in 2014 and did not file a tax return. She did buy that giant house where she never lives. And the IRS is grateful for that, because they have placed a lien on the property.
According to the lien, it looks like she has ten years to refile. But I would not count on that. The IRS will be quite unhappy with the lack of filings and will now look into her previous and future years very closely. Something tells me this was not a one time thing.
I’ve been sitting on so much EXCLUSIVE RHOA tea this week because my exclusive sources are finally coming through with so much information. So let me sort through it all in some sort of cohesive way because different information came from different sources and I need to weave everything together. Let’s start with the three women I know of who are testing. Then we will get into what is going on with each of the housewives so far, and pop some popcorn because it is juicy.
Leilani is a friend of Sheree Whitfield’s. She is a realtor and has two kids. She was filmed at Sheree’s son Kairo’s birthday party recently. She was also at a made for TV birthday party for Porsha over the weekend. Of the three women, she has done the least amount of testing. I think she will be an FOH or just be around in a few scenes. I don’t see her having a peach when Sheree doesn’t even have one yet. I’m not sure if she was at Kenya’s housewarming. This one probably has more dues to pay.
