It’s time for RHOA, or more accurately, the Phaedra and Apollo show. Phaedra manages to get free dental care for the boys by filming them going to see the dentist. There were ten tons of promotional shots. That should keep them in dental care until their adult years. I found it very strange that the street numbers were blurred on the building. Why? They showed name of the practice a dozen times, and had every item they sell displayed behind the reception desk, but for some reason someone went to the trouble to blur the street address? Also is Phaedra married to that giant bagel on her head? How much does that thing weigh? It makes my head hot just looking at her wearing that all over the place in Atlanta in the summer. Why does Apollo looked shocked to see Phaedra and Ayden? Clearly he knew about the appointment which is why he was there. #BadActing Ayden was priceless with the whole, “Daddy? Oh boy….” reaction.
Did we really need the entire family in the room for his cleaning? How many times is Phaedra going to point out to us that her focus is on parenting? Pretty much everything she says, you may presume the opposite. Phaedra has TWO fulltime people to watch the boys. One, an overnight nanny lives in the house. The other, a baby sitter is there all day when the boys are awake. Phaedra’s mother is there a lot too and keeps the kids when she goes on “book tours” for months at a time. According to Angela Stanton, who becomes more believable by the day, Phaedra never liked her kids and was very standoffish around her kids. Even in Phaedra’s first bizarre deposition, she commented on Angela “always being pregnant” as if that were a bad thing. But now, suddenly, Phaedra would have us believe she is all about parenting. I’m not buying it.
Cynthia is excited for the release of her Ebony edition. She also wants us to know she um, “has her groove back” so to speak. Cynthia’s spread is beautiful but in one shot it looks like she is missing an arm. I’m just saying. Peter and Cynthia plan the Ebony party. Nene and Porsha are not invited. Continue reading

On the season seven preview it was revealed that Phaedra Parks had been cheating on Apollo. We see Apollo telling Peter about it. We see Cynthia telling Peter about it. And we see Kenya confronting Phaedra about it. It seems that Kenya may have a right to poke at Phaedra a bit this season since next week, Apollo comes clean about the lies he told about Phaedra. I hope he explains what the point of all that was. It sure didn’t make his homelife any easier, or Kenya’s work life for that matter.
I’ve never understood the two major types of shade thrown at Kenya, half the time her cast mates are saying she can’t get a man and the other half of the time Phaedra is calling her a whore. Which on is it? If the previews are to be believed Miss Southern Belle has been getting her bell rung by someone who is not Apollo for quite awhile.
Kenya was recently interviewed by Hollywood Life and she spilled some interesting tea on Phaedra’s African lover. Continue reading
RHOA On Their Overseas Trip
UPDATE: It seems I was right. My tweeps are reporting that Phaedra is no longer following Kandi.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta went on two trips this season and posted a lot of Instagram pictures. Of course I went over them several times looking for “clues” and googling images of yellow bathtubs trying to locate the hotel (shut up, you know you want to know first!) and looking at body language. It was clear that my sources were correct and the group is deeply divided. Team Pretty, Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia and Demetria are a solid foursome filmed together and Nene is with Porsha and Phaedra. Both Porsha and Phaedra were easy for Nene to pick up as minions. Porsha because she is a good four standard deviations below the mean on the IQ bell curve, and Phaedra because she has been extremely abusive to Kenya. Team Pretty has known all along that Phaedra’s accusations were lies, but this season, on the next episode in fact, we will see Apollo attempt to right his wrongs before heading to the slammer. Apollo will come clean to Kenya and apologize. This sours team Pretty Team on Phaedra for good. So there is someone else Nene can scoop up to follow her now that Cynthia has burnt up the friendship contract and she’s had a falling out with most anyone else. And that leaves Kandi.
If you look at all of the pictures of the trips I can only find one where Kandi was standing next to Phaedra. On the 15 hour flight to Seoul, Kandi sat next to Cynthia. It seemed to me that these two were not nearly as close as they used to be. We saw on the premiere that the guys (Peter and Todd) were supporting Apollo in the relationship situation between Phaedra and Apollo. Todd had Apollo over and Kandi tried to state Phaedra’s case, but I get the feeling she eventually got tired of hearing Phaedra bitch at her because Todd was being nice to Apollo. It looks like based on these blogs that the two are not BFF’s anymore. What do you think? Continue reading

Felons by Bravo
UPDATE: I read the court’s order for Phaedra to comply with the depo. The topics are narrowed to two. One, her agreement with Augustus Publishing resulting in her dropping her suit against them. And two, any “non-privileged” questions regarding Apollo and his “alleged” criminal activities. Which is pretty much the entire case more or less. So the depo might be interesting. Unfortunately, the agreement with Augustus has a confidentiality agreement involved. This means that the court will seal the depo when it is entered into evidence. So we probably won’t ever get to read it.
In other news, Phaedra is on her way to LA. Who wants to go to the taping of Ellen and report back? :) No depo today, tomorrow, Wednesday or probably Thursday so I suppose she will squeeze it in on Friday or Monday of next week? That Phaedra always pushing things to the last minute.
I’m getting really bored with this drama. One would think that Phaedra would have better things to do being a single mother with two young sons, filming a TV show, selling her workout videos, hawking her etiquette book to the less genteel, running a busy entertainment law practice representing celebrities, embalming all those bodies of humans and pets alike, taking her prayer cloth on a countrywide tour of religious congregations, making talk show appearances, building moats and gates around her white house, and now filing for divorce from her felonious husband. One would think so. But one would be wrong. Because more than two years and countless attorneys later, Parks v. Stanton is still a thing. One has to wonder how long cases can drag on especially with and uncooperative plaintiff.
I got tired of transcribing the ridiculous excuse for a deposition this summer. I got tired of waiting for the plaintiff’s response to the defense’s motion to compel, which turned up last month. It was equally as ridiculous as the “deposition.” Plaintiff’s attorney, who must be dying to jump ship like the others before him have, responded by saying that Phaedra did answer all relevant questions and that Defendant’s attorney was trying to make the case about Apollo. Isn’t Apollo a big part of the case? The alleged libel of Phaedra is that Angela wrote a book that said that Phaedra was involved in Apollo’s criminal mess, right? If this was happening on a TV show we’d all be screaming about the absurdity of the storyline. But it’s not a TV show. This is actually going on in a court of law. Over two years. Continue reading
But this seemed like true love!
In the lead up to Phaedra Parks appearance on The Ellen Show next week, her press representative, Steve Honig has reportedly told E! News exclusively, “[She] has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage.” And that boys and girls is the shortest exclusive in tabloid history. It’s not even a complete sentence. And it’s also bizarre. Does anyone believe this is an amicable divorce?
I got several emails about this turn of events ( Thanks! They are much appreciated) and so I went to look for some sort of statement and it’s a sentence fragment given to one site? Does this seem weird to anyone else?
Is Phaedra going on The Ellen Show to announce her divorce? Is that the southern belle way according to Phaedra Parks? This is all kind of ridiculous. Continue reading
I do not do too many blind items on this site, but I do enjoy reading them at Crazy Days and Nights. The guy that runs the site is an entertainment lawyer who seems to have an endless supply of sources with credible information. By the time he reveals his blinds, you find yourself saying, “Oh, that makes perfect sense now.” Today he revealed this blind he first published on February 26th.
Blind Items Revealed
February 26, 2014
This Southeast based Housewife is popping pills almost constantly and rarely shows up for work and when she does show up just sleeps on the floor for an hour
or two before leaving.
Phaedra’s house is white now.
This post is another TamaraTattles.com EXCLUSIVE. Thanks to those who do not steal the story but instead use an excerpt and a clearly identified link to this post. Those who do not could suffer from any number of maladies from incontinence to toe fungus to congophilic angiopathy. Make a good choice fellow entertainment writers.
Let’s face it. The Real Housewives of ANYWHERE make terrible neighbors. But the Real Housewives of Atlanta have taken it to an art form. Remember when Kim Zolciak was in that house she rented from Kendra Davis? There was a time when Kim had security guards hanging out on her front lawn to keep Kendra and her husband, the landlords, away from her. When she moved she took most of the landscape with her (because she planted it, dammit!) and gave it away to her new neighbors in the surrounding condos! Kenya Moore had landlord issues as well and of course both of those cases the cameras would invade the neighborhood and film all the drama. Hell, Kim had a huge wedding in her back yard and the cops were called. Sheree Whitfield had neighbors MOVE OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD over the massive over construction that never ends on the monstrosity of what may, one day, some how be, Chateau Sheree. I’ve lost count of the years that has been going on.
Up until recently, Phaedra Parks has managed to get along with her neighbors fairly well. Then in April of 2013 Phaedra and Phamily moved into a nice quiet cul-de-sac. It’s off to itself, and not officially part of any subdivision. Just five very nice houses in a very convenient location. Then filming started. Last season, the black van that supposedly picked everyone up at Nene’s for the Savannah trip actually picked everyone up house to house. All of the “who was late to the pick-up time” was entirely fabricated. Neighbors say that bus was in the cul-de-sac filming Phaedra getting on the bus for two hours. Why? Who knows. But it was not really the housewives arrivals that were late it was the long drawn out filming of everyone getting on the bus. In fact that waiting scene was probably a reshoot afterward because by the time the bus actually left it was quite late, which is why they arrived in Savannah so late.
But last year’s filming was pretty tame at Phaedra’s. This year has not been. Between the filming crews and all the comings and goings and book tours, and side pieces and malfunctioning security alarms and police, the baby sitters, the nannies, the overnight nannies, the stylists, the make up people and on and on the neighborhood is not such a peaceful place anymore.

Apollo is out on tour y’all!
In this post, I hope to separated the facts of the last 36 hours or so from the fiction that most sites are reporting. Let’s start with the things on the Atlanta end of the situation, as they are the easiest to confirm or debunk.
FACT: Apollo Nida has not been at his former residence with Phaedra since Sunday, September 7, 2014.
This is not even debatable. I have a source with eyes on the house all day long, every day. More than one actually. When your neighbor films a television show at their home, that gets the neighbors talking. When the man of the house makes news for committing fraud and is sentenced to the federal penitentiary, you become on heightened alert counting the days until leaves. For the past couple of months, I received daily updates, photos and commentary on the comings and goings at Chez Parks-Nida. I know the comings and goings of the nannies, Bravo film crew, make-up wardrobe people, Bravo cars provided for filming. It’s all documented. My source is golden. Continue reading
Police arrived at Phaedra’s house around 4:30 this afternoon. Bravo cameras were still there filming an interior scene with Phaedra. Ayden was wandering around the neighbor’s houses despite his babysitter being on the scene. Ayden has several young playmates in the neighborhood but they are all at school. He is playing with a neighbor’s cat at the moment. I have also learned that Phaedra took the boys and the nannies to the beach when she left last Friday. The rest of the story is here.
The TMZ story is false. Apollo is NOT at the house. Phaedra has had an alarm system installed that has been malfunctioning a lot lately. The police have been out to the house several times since it was installed as has the Alarm company. There was no screaming, no Apollo, no confrontation. Continue reading
I hope my cellie has a purdy mouf!

Oh Look! It seems I am the source for another major websites story again today! Even still the site manages to get things wrong. Phaedra and Apollo filmed their last Real Housewives of Atlanta scenes last Thursday in a shoot that went late into the evening. The next day Phaedra took the boys and left. Reports that Phaedra was concerned for her physical safety are not true. In the last few weeks Apollo and Phaedra have been living together without any major incidents and have entertained friends and family who came to say their goodbyes over Labor Day weekend. Apollo spent his last two days home alone without visitors washing his car and riding his brand new motorcycle. On Sunday Apollo, left and headed to Tennessee where he spent the last two days of his freedom partying in Nashville. This morning he made the three-hour drive to Lexington and turned himself in. Perhaps that site can make some corrections to its story.

UPDATE: Phaedra and the kids left the house on the evening of Friday the 5th and have not returned to the house. Apollo left Sunday the 7th about 2 pm to make is way to Kentucky. He drove his own car. No one has returned to the house yet. Apollo must turn himself in by noon tomorrow. He is supposedly spending tonight, in Nashville, Tennessee. Updates as they become available.

I’d like to move away from the #FelonsByBravo in New Jersey and focus on one of our hometown #FelonsByBravo , Apollo Nida, who is getting ready to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday. I’ve been hold back some steaming hot tea.
For the past few weeks, I’ve had a source very close to the situation with Phaedra and Apollo updating me on what has been going on. I’ve been keeping this under my hat to avoid outing my source and causing them any inconvenience, but the time has come to let you in on what my exclusive Tamara Tattles spies have been reporting.
It’s been a long hot summer to say the least between Apollo and Phaedra Parks. For most of May and June, Apollo was doing his Farewell Tour through the south’s sleaziest small town strip clubs “promoting his brand.” He was the cover boy for Sister2Sister magazine for the month of May and was going buck wild on twitter posting videos about “haters” who were “disparaging his brand.” He begged Twitter to “verify him” as a celebrity (they did not oblige.) It was phenomenally hysterical. During that time, Phaedra went on her Southern Belle Prayer Cloth Tour so that she would be out-of-town whenever he was not. It was War of the Roses and they went weeks without being home a the same time. Apollo spent some time in Philly. Phaedra spent some time with Kandi and Fantasia in Cancun for a big blowout girl’s trip to celebrate Fantasia’s birthday. The unhappy couple was anywhere away from home that they could be for months.
In July filming for RHOA began and things began to change. Apollo stopped the self-aggrandizing tweets and began just asking people on Twitter for emotional support. On July 8th his “eight-year” sentence was handed down. Phaedra did not support him or go to court. He was salty and gave some more delusional interviews. He really doesn’t know when to shut up. You can read about the actual amount of time Apollo will serve here. Continue reading
