LOL We start with Apollo’s video he posted from the prison where he says he is about to “go asunder,” which always makes me wonder what he thought that meant during his wedding vows. And it ends with “you will be hearing from me shortly,” as if he thought he was going to do a podcast from prison or something. They really are milking this prison shit.
ROFLMAO. Phaedra is so full of shit. These fake ass security people. Taking the service elevator. She so wants people to believe there are paparazzi tailing her. Jesus. She has to flag THEM down in LAX. Now she is talking about “the headmaster” (giggles) at the boys school. Wait so she took the boys to school from the hotel with all the security? Jesus. Those boys are in some day care. The rarely go, they are with the baby sitters and the nannies most of the time. All the parents on that cul de sac go to a variety of schools and have tons of get togethers with tons of neighbors in the area. They go to all sorts of private schools. Nary a one has ever seen any spawn of Phaedra at their school. Headmaster. /giggle. This scene is hilarious. Waiting on the elevator by the high voltage door.
I don’t even know When this “return to the house” thing happened. We had another fake “return to the house scene” last week. How many times is she going to “return to the house?” I love the giant Phine Body poster in the living room. Phaedra is such a victim in all of this. She just wants to kill Apollo with her bare hands and then embalm him and cremate him and flush him down the commode. Okay. That’s not sociopathic at all.
Oh look fake scenes of Phaedra pretending she watches her kids.
A hilarious bullshit scene with a ridiculous “apostle” praising Jesus and sprinkling some water on the floor throughout the house occurs. Phaedra’s in her infinite biblical scholarship says that he has performed an exorcism. Lord have mercy this show is stupid tonight. Continue reading

This week only THREE of the RHOA posted blogs: Kenya, Claudia and Kandi. I’m actually surprised that Kandi posted at all but now that the housewives have the option of answering questions (which is much easier than writing a blog from scratch) since she has said many times she hates it, mostly because they don’t let her say what she wants to say.
I find it very odd that Nene isn’t blogging especially because she wasn’t on last week’s episode at all, the week before that there was not show, and this weekend there is no show. You would think she would not want her fans to forget about her. Or maybe she does want rating to lag now. She has been busy on the talk shows pretending like she is so over the drama. I finally watched most of her interview on Meredith Vieira the other day. It comes on at 2 am here. It was very odd. That show has changed since the last time I watched it and Meredith seems to be doing a more “serious” interview. Nene was trying to speak the Queen’s English and over enunciating words like she had just come from speech therapy. The interview was about how ratchet all the other women on RHOA and how Nene is pure as the driven snow. Nene talked about her being a white, black girl because of her blonde wigs. She doesn’t care what anyone says she is going to stay blond. Then she told her story about being the victim of domestic violence and a single mother who worked the polls to raise her po churren. So perhaps that is why she is not blogging lately.
Phaedra probably knows this is her last season, and Cynthia has been at fashion week. Continue reading
Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia at STK Atlanta
We start this episode of RHOA, refreshingly, with Team Pretty. Cynthia and Kenya go to see Claudia’s apartment now that she is fully moved in with all of her furniture. I read on one of her blogs that Cynthia had some issues with moving her furniture to Atlanta and several things were stolen. It looks to me like this apartment has been carefully staged by someone. *cough* production *cough* At any rate it’s really pretty and I love the building she is in with the views of downtown. Claudia fills the girls in on the Dish Nation party and her altercation with Porsha. Claudia gets teary-eyed telling the story. She says it reminds her of when she was in high school and she was picked on for being bi-racial.
Claudia is struggling with getting up before dawn to get to the morning show. Porsha’s attitude isn’t helping her morning routine. Claudia meets with Rickey Smiley about her struggles at work and Porsha. Rickey suggests someone be the bigger person and apologize. Rickey goes to get Porsha and brings her in. Porsha walks in with a jar of gummy bears in one of those fancy bags she is allegedly selling her vagina for. Porsha is acting like a 12-year-old. Rickey has the three of them hold hands and pray. Awkward.
Todd and Kandi talk about Kandi’s part that she says Todd got her in Second Chance Christmas. I saw that movie because I love all Christmas movies. I’m already counting down to November to start all over again. Kandi’s part was small and she seemed just like Kandi to me. But still it was fun to see her acting. Kandi and Todd are going to filming but Todd is staying for a week. Kandi says he is not really working but staying to party with his friends. Seriously. Why did these to even get married? And why are they “trying” to have a baby? Kandi’s house is really pretty.
Kandi comes back from her trip without Todd. She had a fight with Todd in LA about her asking people business questions. Todd wants her to ask him because he is in the business. Kandi says she and Todd aren’t really having sex unless she initiates it. They only have sex once a week. Kandi suspects Todd is cheating. Kandi tells Carmon that if she was advising herself about Todd, she would say that they either need counseling or plan to divorce!
Kenya is working on the script for Life Twirls On. She working on a dildo scene. I’m just not excited about this show if it’s going to be a dildo show. We get enough of that with Kandi.
Kenya working on casting her show. Cynthia comes in to audition wearing some crazy outfit that she thinks makes her look Jamaican like the part is written. It’s not giving me Jamaica. Cynthia’s make-up is hideous and so is her hair. They give her the part. Did Kenya just say that Leon has a part or that they have cast someone for Leon? Continue reading

This is how I feel about doing a blog tonight.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not really feeling the blog lately. So tonight, I’m gonna let y’all write your own damn Real Housewives of Atlanta recaps. I’m not excited about the manufactured drama between Claudia and THOT over Kordell, or Kenya’s new show in the works with Roger Bobb, and I know the real story on Phaedra and Apollo. So knock yourselves out in comments.
I don’t think we get to the part where Apollo actually leaves for Kentucky tonight. Lord knows, they will drag that out forever. But if you missed what really went down in the days just before his self surrender date, of September 10th, click through for the blow by blow.
This post is a Tamaratattles.com EXCLUSIVE. Please be sure to credit and link properly if you like to use it on your blog.
I was not going to write this tonight but once I mentioned I had more tea, y’all are forcing me to make the post! I love that you are all so interested.
What I found out today is that when Todd was still supportive of Apollo, and Kandi sort of rode the fence between being supportive of Phaedra and Apollo, Phaedra was none too thrilled. Todd was very supportive of Apollo and hung out with him sometimes with Kandi present. Phaedra saw this as a betrayal. Continue reading
Clearly in Puerto RIco Kandi was still friends with Phaedra.
On tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies arrive back home from their trip. Nene’s personal valet picks her up at Hartsfield. Nene talks to Gregg about being around all those negative girls. LOL. Nene explains her version of the fight to Gregg. At that was all we saw of Nene. Expect to see less and less of her as the season goes on. This episode was also Porsha and Demetria free.
Phaedra and Derek J continue the fake storyline where Phaedra is representing Derek who is accused of stealing used weave. In the office that is not hers. I am so over this show and all it’s fakery. Phaedra’s momma comes in to talk about Apollo leaving for prison.
Meanwhile, Apollo takes the boys out for frozen yogurt and tries to prepare them for his departure. Apollo seems genuinely remorseful. Or at least sad that he has to leave his boys. Continue reading

I just read the little synopsis for this episode and I’m telling you right now I am so over the Kandi and Todd storyline. It never ceases to amaze me how Bravo can manipulate our little pea brains to like or hate the same person from season to season. I really liked Kandi at first, then I was neutral, and now I could not be more over her.
Cynthia takes Claudia to Derek J’s for a make-over.
Claudia’s Italian mother, and her black grandmother on her father’s side are in town for a visit. Claudia’s mom brought snail salad for her. Apparently, that is a thing. She takes them straight to Lips, a drag queen restaurant. Claudia’s mother is pressuring her to have a baby. Claudia’s mother has never said “I love you.” The 90 year old grandmother says it to Claudia all the time. Continue reading

I don’t know if it is the crap weather, or the fact that my days and nights are sort of backwards, or the lack of sunlight, or what but there just seems to be a big cloud of negativity everywhere. I guess it is sort of fitting for tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta because tonight we finally get Demetria. Word on the street is she is full of negativity for the first part of filming. Plus Apollo is back. The editing this season is crazy out of order and odd.
Kandi’s family is all getting together at Aunt Nora’s house for a cookout. Mama Joyce is mad at Kandi for talking about her boyfriend tearing up Kandi’s house. OMG! I want to eat some of all that! Oh dear, homemade red velvet cake!
Aunt Nora makes Kandi sit down and talk with her mother. Mama Joyce says she is taking medicine to try not and get an aneurism. She is trying to be calm. Nothing is resolved but they sort of agree to put things inside.
Phaedra stops over at Kandi’s and Kandi is trying to eat healthy because she wants to get pregnant. Phaedra says things are tense. Kandi has a cousin who just happens to be there to talk to Phaedra about how to tell her boys their daddy is going to prison. He has been to prison or something. This is a ridiculous scene and it’s clear Phaedra is not happy to be filming it. Oh Melvin’s dad is in prison and he resents not being told. I love the red leather handbag Phaedra is carrying. Kandi and Phaedra cry. Phaedra looks really pretty. Continue reading

I’ve had sort of a stressful evening so I am sipping the hell out of some wine and loading all the weapons and taking the collar off the attack dog in case he “gets loose.” So don’t sweat me about this Real Housewives of Atlanta recap. I may or may not have to stop and drag a body or three over the threshold but, but we will get through this.
Is the first HW of the evening and she is visiting Claudia who is the first person mentioned in the official description of this episode. Who is the HBIC now?
Claudia gets the intro on the same scene. MMMMhmmm Claudia has a stunning corner apartment with a view of the whole city. Claudia is so city girllllll *SCHREEEECCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHH* Holy fuck. Red solo cups. I can’t. Please give me a minute to compose myself as these two Yankees get all Kim Zolciak (born Yankee) and act all white trash. I can’t. I really can’t. OMG! Kenya acknowledges the problem. Kindly and gently and points out that is what winos do. THANK YOU KENYA. Frankly, I have heard that the girls do it for the same reasons they don’t eat during restaurant scenes. Production makes them do it for continuity. You know, full glass empty glass. full glass again issues. I’m sorry I just would not be able to comply. It’s a travesty. Continue reading

According to Daily Mail
“Sharon was reportedly unconscious after suffering a stroke when Tucker arrived in New York. She then slipped into a coma overnight before passing away on Tuesday, the same source claims. When Sharon was hospitalized Tucker’s wife Kandi Burruss is reported to have been in Los Angeles while he was in Atlanta.” Continue reading
Because LALATE ruled the Internets today….#NENE
I am slow on the go tonight so this may take forever, but here we go on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I’m also trying a new format tonight so let’s get on with the show.
I don’t even need to see this scene before I know it is going to be more evidence that Kandi and Todd’s marriage is never going to last. We are at the Kandi Factory and I am already thinking that they should have talked about WAY more stuff before hooking up. They don’t seem to agree about any of the big issues. This already seems so staged. I get that it is all staged. But could two people ever be more mismatched? I hope for Kandi’s sake this is not how she runs a business. She seems to know how to manage money and run a business, so I don’t believe any of this. Sorry, Bravo.
Wait. Why is Todd all up in her business?
Kandi has a team meeting about “her brand” but Todd decides to chime in. Kandi is suddenly on Don Juan over some shit about having Kandi give some classes on songwriting. This may be a good time to point out that in my VERY early days when maybe five people read here that Don Juan took it upon himself to question why I had the nerve to wonder why Kandi was doing an event at some Asian restaurant in the Midwest. I spent way too long looking for that post. It was a restaurant like Chin Chin if you are from Atlanta, it’s decent Chinese but not the place you would expect to hire a housewive. I loved Kandi and thought it was beneath her. Don Juan let me know that Kandi is a single mom just trying to support a child. Um WTF? She’s a millionaire. How is going to St Louis or wherever going to make a difference? She’s actually losing time with her child for a few thousand dollars she will never spend? It made no sense.
Sorry, back to the show.
Todd says that everyone is too comfortable. He chastises the staff. Kandi actually tries to draw out Todd more. Like she is asking him to drop the hammer because she has hired FRIENDS for her entire staff. Dumb move.
Later Don Juan asks Todd to step out so he can talk to Kandi. Basically he is pissed that Todd is reprimanding people. He is NOT an employee. Don Juan called this months ago. Kandi doesn’t realize how much Kandi does.
Todd has a conversation with Don Juan. Don Juan is also right. He puts his resume up against Kandi. WTF is TODD fucking up her business relationship of 12 years? Don Juan knows EVERYTHING Kandi which is why he tried to check me with 37 viewers. I may not be a fan of Don Juan but the boy is on top of shit. I am starting to side with Mama Joyce here. Todd is a cunt. I love Don Juan for saying, “Let’s put him in a step stair so he can look me in my eye.” Kandi is fucking up.

I can’t wait for us to get to know Claudia Jordan tonight! First, Cynthia and Porsha talk about Cynthia’s party. Porsha throws shade right of the bat toward Cynthia saying she started out as little Nene and now she is baby Kenya. Porsha is so funny in these scenes talking about Claudia. This is before she knew that Claudia was there to snatch her peach. Phaedra finally shows up to the pow wow with Porsha and Kandi. BTW, they are at some high-end bar in Atlanta and Phaedra and Porsha are dressed to the nines and Phaedra is in yoga pants and a tank top. Phaedra asks how Cynthia’s party was because she missed it. Nope, she was tipped off and kept right on driving after arriving at Bar One. Anyway, Kandi tells the story. Kandi tells Phaedra (and that other one)about Apollo lying about everything related to Kenya.
Phaedra acts SHOCKED! Shocked I tell you! She was 8 months pregnant at the time Apollo was telling her this and it just added to the stress. Now this puts her under more stress. Wow, Phaedra admits that she owes Kenya an apology. She doesn’t think Kenya is Mother Teresa but she is woman enough to have a conversation and apologize and move forward. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kandi says, “Not just you all of us.” The editing is shady and it looks like Porsha is agreeing. In her talking head Kandi says she feels bad for Kenya. Phaedra says, “Oh that’s terrible. Poor Kenya.”
Meanwhile Kenya and her aunt are at Lush Life landscaping. It’s a really pretty setting. Her aunt suggests she consider a cactus since she has a tendency to kill flowers. Her aunt is suggesting Kenya find forgiveness for all of them, especially Porsha. They flash to a montage of Porsha and Nene and Phaedra saying vile things about Kenya at the last reunion. Kenya is struggling to forgive. She says she would be willing if they were willing to reach out to her first. Her Aunt tries to coax Kenya to be the bigger person. Kenya dramatically spouts off some Shakespeare (Iago from Othello if you are interested.) Continue reading
