I am just now seeing this for the first time. I don’t think it is nearly as ratchet as y’all made it seem.
1) I TOTALLY agree with the aunts about their rooms. These are elderly women. They should have had the room that the daughters got in the first place. Who puts their teenagers in the room next door and tells their elderly aunts to hike out through the ice to their rooms up a flight of steps. WRONG.
2) Riley and Kaela can DO WHAT THE FUCK THEY ARE TOLD. They are on a free vacation. Plus, you can sneak BOYS into that room in the boondocks or sneak in booze or pot or porn or whatever. Who wants a twin room up under your parents when you can have your own fucking suite?
3) Don Juan and Carmon are douchebags who think they are on vacation. THEY ARE NOT. They are on a work trip. How dare they mock the white boy for WORKING as they cool their jets? Continue reading
I didn’t realize until today that I missed the Blood Sweat & Heels episode last week because they stuck Watch What Happens Live on the end of the reunion messing up my DVR schedule. I already have two shows taping at 10. I hate when Andy tacks WWHL on where it doesn’t belong.
We start this episode of the reunion with Andy bringing up the challenge on the last reunion about donating $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Kenya did as she said she would and Nene did not. Nene says she will do it when she gets ready. Kenya says that really gets under her skin. She talks about being such a rich bitch with all of this extra money but she wants to be petty when it comes to a charitable donation for children. Nene says that she feels like Kenya is trying to “make a mockery out of it.” Nene questions, “Who puts their check on social media?” Um how about someone who was challenged to make the donation on national television. A better question is why would a person claim they were going to write a check for 20K and challenge a colleague to MATCH it, and then never write the check even after the colleague did match it? Nene goes on the “she is right!” trip she has been on for the whole reunion.
Next we discuss, “the new Cynthia.” Someone asks Phaedra about her vicious comments about Cynthia having bills and legal cases all over Atlanta and they ask why she would say such personal and vicious things. Phaedra says it is because Cynthia was spreading rumors about Mr. Chocolate at a time when she was most vulnerable Girl, please. It was your husband who was spreading those rumors and Cynthia brought them to you. She is not your BFF, she had no bond to you to prevent her from discussing what Apollo was saying with whomever she pleased. Cynthia says Phaedra could haves squashed it am moved on just like she did with Nene when she called her a “head doctor.” Phaedra forgave Nene because she apologized. LOL. Naw, Phaedra overlooked Nene’s jabs at her because they both needed some backup this season. Cynthia says she apologized in the Philippines and it was not accepted. Phaedra somehow goes on to say how many jobs she has. Again. Where are these jobs? Has anyone seen them? And how does she do them all when she is flying around to churches trying to sell her etiquette book and passing the love offering plate? Allegedly. Hell even her charities are suspect according to those in attendance at the last one. Continue reading

Okay, Kandi Burruss is going to take her crying on the road today and appear on the Dr. Oz show with Todd to talk about her fertility issues.
I was really hoping they would be at the beginning. Alas, I am suffering through at juice cleanse double segment for you. You’re welcome. While we wait, do you guys think this is all for her spinoff storyline? Because despite all the on camera fighting, they seem all fine and dandy on twitter and Instagram.
In the opening package they state that Kandi and Todd’s marriage is stronger than ever. Dr. Oz says that their first year looked a bit rough. Kandi said it was a major adjustment period. He asks if they regret having it all play on television. Kandi says, “Well especially watching it all play out on this season, we could have kept some things to ourselves.” Todd says it was good they let it all play out. He says that people on the streets tell him every day that they learned something from it. Oh, I don’t think he said people on the streets that was probably my term. heh.
Dr. Oz asks how Kandi has changed over the years. He says he thinks she has become a bit more sensitive. Kandi is shocked. Todd isn’t referring to the constant crying. He says at first she was all rough and tough and now she is calmer and more relaxed. She is a little softer. Todd has a full on beard by the way. Continue reading
Kandi has called in a stylist for a date with Todd. Normally, I would find this ridiculous, but this is Kandi we are talking about. Did you see what she wore in Manila? But this guy is NOT the stylist. He brings her some leopard crap. She needs to hire Shun Melson.
On the date he says he made the date because it is their therapy “homework.” And we are off to a bad start. Things continue to get worse. Todd asks her if she is ovulating. Kandi says she didn’t know if they would make it to their upcoming one year anniversary. And she answers his ovulation question by saying her period is about to start. Seriously. Sex toys, enemas and periods all in the first 20 minutes. Kandi asks if Todd still wants a baby. His show got a second season which is going to mean more time apart and the timing is bad. Kandi says they have an appointment with the fertility doctor. Todd wants to go to L.A. for a month and a half. Kandi says she doesn’t think they should go more than 2 weeks without seeing her. Todd wants Kandi to come to L.A. with him for the whole time.
So I was trying to get my work area set up to blog (AKA grabbing a snack, in this case literally popcorn) and I come in the room and I’m trying to figure out who this woman is Cynthia is talking to. It’s Noelle! When did she turn 35? Why is Cynthia asking Noelle who her date to Homecoming is as she is getting dressed to leave? This script makes no sense. Apparently, the script also includes Kenya coming over to help Cynthia parent her child. Why is Cynthia asking Kenya about the pilot when Cynthia is in it ? Shouldn’t she know? This whole scene is weird. Why is Kenya mentoring Cynthia’s kid how to walk? Oh wait, at least Cynthia pointed that out.
Cynthia and Peter chat about the trip. Cynthia is unhappy her butt is getting so big. It is looking bigger. Cynthia is trying to get Peter to help her with the Jamaican accent her character has on Life Twirls On.
The :40 mark out take was of Kenya acting in the show as a knife wielding bride. Cute!
Gregg takes Nene to Sardi’s. Nene thinks she is a real New Yorker. Brentt is having a good time playing hooky and hanging out in New York. Gregg points out that Brentt needs rules. Nene doesn’t seem to think so. Nene’s parenting track record leaves much to be desired. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE! Tamara Tattles Tea on the Real Housewives of Atlanta 2015 Reunion! Please use excerpts and provide links to this source when quoting.
Y’all are terribly impatient when it comes to RHOA Reunion Tea! It takes me awhile to synthesize my information and get the best idea of what actually went down from the many voices who are dropping some hints. Some sources just love to make you ask every little detail and that is so tiring at this point that I can’t be bothered. I just going to go with who seems to have taken the worst beating this season. The good news is, the top three recipients of a good old RHOA read are all on Team Beast!
But first the seating situation. On the left couch, we have Kenya next to Andy, then Cynthia then Kandi, On the right couch we have Nene , Phaedra and then Claudia!
Later when Porsha came out, Claudia moved to the Team Pretty plus Kandi couch and Porsha sat with Team Beast.
Also, despite the Asian themed set, I was told that the filming was indeed at The Biltmore again. That does not look like The Biltmore to me, but… apparently, it is.
As for how the ladies looked, I heard great thing about everyone except Porsha who was dressed for her other job if you know what I mean. I’m told that Nene got it right for the reunion. I’m not sure how much faith we should have in that report but in the spirit of fairness I’m letting you know that reports are that Nene looked good. The usual “did she have some work done?” rumor went to Kandi. Waist training? New Boobs? Good Spanx? Whatever it was, she got good reviews as well. In fact, everyone was at their best except for the peachless one. Continue reading

Somehow this therapy session becomes a time to apologize to fucking Porsha? Um noe.
Oh God, I had somehow blocked out the last episode of this show and was sitting here wondering where we were going tonight. I completely forgot the TV shrink chasing Nene into the parking lot. I’m not sure who looks dumber, the shrink or Nene sashsaying away in her Pep Boys uniform. I think she probably just had to work a late shift doing some oil changes and stuff in her coveralls.
Thank you Kandi! That is just what I was saying. Why is this fool chasing after Nene? Let her go and the other girls can actually hash some issues out. By the way I love what Kandi is wearing for a change. This is something I would wear.
Nene thinks that the shrink should lose his license. This is so hysterical. Her reasoning is that a good counselor would not allow everyone to speak their truth about how Nene treats people. Nene sees this as “Gang Up on Nene Day!” Clearly she doesn’t understand that counseling is about understanding YOUR behavior in interpersonal relationships and working on yourself. In group or couples counseling it is about listening to how others perceive you. Nene get into her black Range Rover and rolls off.
Back in the session, Kenya points out that Nene does not have the tools to handle when more than one person comes at her, yet the rest of them have dealt with similar situations multiple times. Especially when they first come on the show.
Somehow this therapy session becomes all about Porsha and I can’t even deal with it. Continue reading

Well, if Kandi and Phaedra did reconcile during the Super Bowl, as we suspected. The détente did not last for long. Kandi seems blindsided once again by Phaedra’s comments and behaviors on last night’s episode.
Since I am out of the house at the moment, I am breaking the usual rule ( that everyone except CocoBrown seems aware of by now Note to Coco: Please stop announcing the Bravo blogs every week) about saving the Bravo blogs until much later in the week. Kandi was the first one with a blog up this week which is not like Kandi at all.
If Phaedra’s plan was to pull Kandi in as an ally before the reunion films, that was an epic fail.
Bravotv.com: Did you and Todd ever finish your pros and cons list?
Kandi Burruss: No, we didn’t.
Doomed. P.S. Not sure if it was last night or Friday night that Todd was Instagramming about roaming around to movies and car racing places and such in the wee hours of the morning while Kandi was Instagramming yet another “girls night out” which apparently consists of strip clubs and tomfoolery. I’m just saying.
Bravotv.com: Why did you get so emotional with Phaedra?
KB: I had a lot going on at the time. Yes, I was upset about my play being cancelled, but I also had some personal family things that I was dealing with as well. So I guess I was just extra emotional. It probably wasn’t the best time to go talk to her, but I was wondering what was going on with our friendship that she had to discuss it with NeNe and Porsha without ever mentioning to me that there was a problem. Watching this episode, it irritated me to see Phaedra try to brush off what was going on with me by saying that I was just upset about a bad business deal. I wasn’t upset about the money. There was a whole bunch of stuff that was going on with me that she didn’t take the time to ask about either. And now just because I didn’t text her every day, I’m a bad friend.
I wonder if this was filmed when Sharon died? The filming was so out of order….
Here we are back for episode seventeen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Is it me or does it seem a lot longer than that. I guess it is all of those Sundays off for awards shows and football games. I am so read for this season to be over.
We start with Phaedra bitching about having to drive all the way to Duluth to film with Porsha. That is Phaedra’s own damn fault. Since Nene and Phaedra will only film with each other and possibly each other, Phaedra is stuck driving out to the boondocks. It does seems like a long ride for Phaedra to do a recap of Phaedra’s meeting with Cynthia. Phaedra implies that CYNTHIA is a plus sized model. Read that again. Phaedra calls Cynthia fat. She also talks about Cynthia having fibroids and dry vagina. Phaedra calls the other women hyena and Satan’s spawn. Then Phaedra and Porsha “pray” over sme “food.”
Todd and Kandi are talking about Kandi’s grandfather Tituss Burruss. I guess this means she is related to Tituss Burress the Broadway actor from Georgia who is going to be on WWHL tonight. Interesting. Todd and Kandi try to do their therapy homework but it doesn’t go well.
Claudia goes over to visit Gary With The Tea from Dish Nation. Gary lives in a nice building downtown. In fact I think I know someone who lives there. Claudia goes to ask him about doing stand-up. Claudia is feeling a little stifled as the straight man, so to speak, on Dish Nation. She wants to be able to do a little unbridled comedy on her own at a comedy club. Later, Claudia goes to meet with Luenell to discuss her comedy routine. Continue reading
Kandi’s blog this week I one of the most interesting ones ever, at least to me. Remember just last month when we saw Phaedra show up at Kandi’s house for the Superbowl? We thought that was a sign they were reconciling. Kandi made a point of saying “even Phaedra” showed up. This was after much speculation that they were not close anymore. Well the big news is, Kandi didn’t really even know there was an issue with Phaedra until the “cancelling session.” That is if it ever even gets brought up during next week’s scripted session with the TV therapist before Nene storms off the set. Kandi was completely oblivious to Phaedra running around talking trash about her to Nene and Porsha.
Now that is some interesting tea. But that is not all.
Kandi’s Bravo Blog is in the Q & A format again this month. I actually prefer this format for her because it has her answer things she would probably not address in a freestyle format. Like this first question.
Bravotv.com: Did you find the marriage counseling helpful?
Kandi Burruss: No.
Um, care to expand on that answer, Kandi? Because this just reinforces what we all have been thinking about your relationship with Todd being less than blissful. I mean the expected storyline for you two newlyweds is lots of intimacy and trying to make babies. Plus family fun with the girls. Speaking of the girls we haven’t seen either girl lately. Did Todd’s daughter move out? Did you buy Riley a new house because she didn’t like her luxury suite in your house anymore? Continue reading
It’s time for Real Housewives of Atlanta and frankly, I’m not sure what the storyline we are supposed to be looking forward to is. More Kandi and Todd marital disharmony? More Mr. Chocolate innuendo? I’m bored and it hasn’t even started yet. Meanwhile, I’m on injured reserve from three hours of really hard digging in the yard. So bear with me as usual with the homophones and typos. I’m about to fall over.
It’s time for Cynthia to download Peter on what went down at the Mr. Chocolate dinner last week. Meanwhile Porsha and Phaedra are at The Palm loading up on free food to go. I think the scene with Porsha and Phaedra was another “pick-up” as most of Phaedra’s scenes are this season. It was filmed in mid to late November. It is hysterical they are sitting there in some kind of boob revealing formal wear in an empty restaurant in an off hour when most people will show up in business casual. Did Phaedra did say about Kenya, ” She can’t help but bark?” I love how both whores (allegedly) are going in on Kenya who was not even the messenger in this instance. Cynthia pointed out Phaedra’s whorish ways and Claudia outed Porsha participating in the world’s oldest profession, yet both of them have hard on for Kenya. Interesting. Phaedra refers to Cynthia and Kenya as “ace boon coons” which apparently Bravo has recently decided can’t be said on the air without bleeping. Oh and they actually aired Porsha and Phaedra ordering two entrees each. I’m told it didn’t stop their these two loaded up their purses like Mama June at a Golden Corral. Porsha and Phaedra talk about Ebola and Africans. Porsha starts trash talking Kandi to try to make ground with Phaedra. Continue reading

I started this post writing about what is wrong with Real Housewives of Atlanta and how it has jumped the shark. I thought about how it could be fixed. How to save the franchise. I thought about how to make it more interesting, ways to make it better. But, very quickly in, I was reminded that we shouldn’t be watching this crap at all. Seriously. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? But first, here is what I thought we should do back when I was still drinking the Kool-Aid. At the end I will link you back to my thoughts three years ago, before the crazy came.
There are too many women on this show. I have said this forever, when there are more than five housewives, it’s hard to get into any of their storylines. Hell, we don’t even notice anymore when Nene is not on at all.
There is was too much recapping of the previous episode. We get it the wives told their husband about the previous week’s forced dinner where someone was a cunt. The wives who weren’t in some scenes the previous week were filled in on what happened. We don’t need the first 25% of the show to be a recap. That’s what I am for. Continue reading

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
