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.

Tamara Tattles can exclusively report that Sheree Whitfield is filming for RHOA. Even more interesting is that she was filming a scene with her family and no actual housewives where present. For me this indicates that she is highly likely to be holding a peach in the upcoming season. There were a couple of former RHOA cast members in attendance though!
A Tamara Tattles spy spotted Sheree, Bob, Tierra, Kaleigh and Kairo at Andretti’s Racing in Roswell on Saturday celebrating Kairo’s 20th birthday. It was an outing for family and close friends. According to my spy, Sheree and Bob “appeared to be a couple.” I am sure Iyanla never saw THAT coming. Sheree, Bob and Kairo all raced the go karts together. Bob does love to be on TV though.
I really hate this time of year because everyone keeps asking me about RHOA. I have a good bit of information about WHERE THINGS STAND NOW. However, as I have learned over the season, things change as filming begins. This is a time where there is a lot of turmoil. You really never know what is going to happen.
So here is what I know so far. First, I want to dispel a rumor. I got the majority of my information last Friday. I decided to hold on to it because I had some followup questions and it was the long weekend and it wasn’t possible to reach the best sources because people were out having their last hurrah. Sometime later that Friday, someone somewhere apparently started a rumor that someone was fired. That is not true. No one was fired last Friday. In fact, I just got a hold of my original contact who basically said, ” Look, I told you what is happening. No one was fired.”
So that means I can go ahead with the information I already had. The short version of that is “Everyone is asked back except Kim who quit. “ Except it’s never that simple. What I was told last week was that everyone was asked back but Phaedra and Porsha have “limited contracts.” This is a term that was used before. In last year’s clusterfuck with things not working out with Nene, Phaedra and Porsha were also not guaranteed full time status last season. There was even a moment where KENYA didn’t seem to be on solid ground. So here we go again. Continue reading

I am gonna miss you, girl
Okay something tells me that there will be few secrets revealed and I am in a hurry to get to Shahs of Sunset that premieres tonight. So I am going to blow through this with a quickness.
Phaedra and Porsha want to give Kim a makeover. Who in the holy hell would want two THOTs to give you a makeover? I love Kim Fields looks. Except for that crappy silver dress for the opening scenes. Kim is way prettier than the Ps. I know the I am the only one, but I am going to miss Kim Fields. There. It feels good to admit it.
Cynthia and Mallory talk about Cynthia’s crappy marriage. ICYMI, CDAN posted a crazy blind about Peter hooking up with Porsha so I am looking at any hints by production that it happened because surely they would have caught wind of something like that, right? I think if it did happen it was early on in the SportsOne process and that is why Kordell is gone from that venture. Anyway, people are blowing me up on Twitter like this is my blind, and it is not. I am torn to pieces about whether to believe it or not so I just had to bring it to my people. It would explain some things. I’m just saying. Peter and Noelle got for a manipedi? Why? Noelle saw the video of Peter and that girl. Noelle says he looked sloppy. It’s clear that Peter lived in Charlotte except for filming. This is actually a good episode. Lots of new footage. Worth a watch.
I forgot about Porsha’s speech to high school kids. So disgusting. That principal got a lot of backlash. Who brings a THOT to a high school? She breaks into her preacher mode. But she is giving a speech about I dunno what. The audience shots are hysterical. She tries to have three steps and she LITERALLY cannot count to three.
