EDITED TO ADD, shortly after this post was made, all the RHOA people removed pictures of their filming at STK ATL . Interesting. I just went back to watermark mine. 🙂

We’ve all noticed that the production/editing of Real Housewives of Atlanta is a bit odd this year. Peaches were being passed around like a game of hot potato all through filming. Production doesn’t bother with a real opening montage of the housewives for their highest rated show? It’s a clusterfuck. Then there was the story sent to TMZ saying that Apollo was home going nuts on Phaedra when he had left the house several days before his self-surrender date and going to Nashville or wherever. It seems they are spending all of their time making up storylines rather than just enhancing whatever these fools really have going on. That scene with Phaedra and the fence? That was one of the last things filmed. While the main filming wrapped just before the holiday season, it would seem that post-production filming is going to be more than the usual talking heads.
Speaking of the fence, I think that whole thing was storyline. Phaedra and or Bravo would like for us to believe that there was paparazzi stalking Phaedra’s house. She needs a fence so that these imaginary paps won’t take pictures of her children. You remember her children, the two adorable little props she uses for storyline. The ones she posts pictures of and drags to the Bravo offices for videotaping with Andy. Those children. A couple of days ago, I was informed that the neighborhood meeting about the proposed fence was held, the entire neighborhood voted it down, and Phaedra didn’t even show up. A few weeks ago the trench that was dug (where they busted a waterline) was re-landscaped and seeded back over with grass seed. Case closed? Going with a moat instead? Who knows?
What I do know is that post-production filming is happening. It seems they have some things to wrap up. Last night around 8:00 pm the entire shit show pulled into the cul-de-sac at Phaedra’s house. The hair and makeup folks, the filming van, the nannies and assorted babysitters, the stylist, and a partridge in a pair tree. Production arrived. And then, a white Rolls Royce pulled into the driveway. Apparently, someone got her driver’s license back.
It would appear that Porsha came over to film a scene. That means that post-production needs Phaedra to say things to tie together her storyline and Porsha is the one she is going to retell some event to. Neighbors of course noticed all the commotion and informed me. It was dark and they didn’t see Porsha getting out of the car, but we can safely assume it was her. It’s awfully late in the season for new footage to be shot. The last time this happened was in New Jersey when Kathy and Jacqueline were tapped to come in during post production and tape fake scenes to try to glue things together. Personally, I didn’t find the footage of Kathy and Jacqueline eating a variety of food contributed very much. I have a feeling this post production footage is going to be Phaedra talking to Porsha about Apollo’s incarceration. Bravo has gone to a lot of trouble to plant fake stories about Apollo’s delay in self-surrender. I guess they need something to try to make that more believable.
Now I am thinking that Kenya’s event at STK Atlanta the other night was filmed as well. Which means we may be seeing Marlo on this season at some point. I wonder what they needed from Team Pretty? Looks like a victory celebration to me.
Anyway, I need a nap. I’ll moderate comments first, but it may be awhile before I get to them again. I gots the crud.
