TMZ keeps running these stories about who production has hired to “replace Nene.” First it was Kim Fields, then it was Sheree Whitfield, now it is Amiyah Scott. Well, one out of three ain’t bad. I told you that Kim Fields recently worked the kinks out of her contract and is now filming here:.
As for the usual game of musical peaches, Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi remain as close to sure things as we ever have at this point in the season. I’m told Kim Fields has officially signed on. All the other potentials have fallen by the wayside. So that leaves Phaedra, Porsha and even Cynthia’s sister Mallory to play hot potato for a peach. Andy seems to love Phaedra so she’s probably going to end up with one. Carlos loves Porsha so things are much improved for her.
At this point, barring any last minute indecision by production, the peaches go to Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi, Phaedra, Porsha and Kim. I do not think there will be a seventh peach, but you never know.
What TMZ doesn’t seem to understand is that Sheree, Marlo, Mallory and Amiyah showing up to a taping doesn’t put them on the show as paid participants. If I started a new post for every picture I saw, I would have been on the Kim Fields is out! bus. Or Sheree is in! bandwagon. I actually know what is happening behind the scenes and it’s just not that simple. Sheree, Marlo and Mallory are making day rate pay of about $1.500 or so depending on a few variables. Amiyah probably just signed a release. The only person Amiyah has followed on Twitter is Kenya and that is because she was at her event.
The only thing the photos tell me is that Phaedra and Porsha have seemingly secured their peaches as I predicted above. With the upheaval in production this season, things are more precarious than ever.
Here is what I know. Every year Atlanta hosts the Bronner Brothers Hair Care Convention. I believe the above gif is from Kenya during her first RHOA season. How quickly things change. This year, Kenya held a launch for Moore Hair Care in front of all the RHOA cameras.
Bravo rented out a space downtown at the M. Rich building to host an event about Kenya’s hair care product launch. Tamaratattles exclusive sources say that the attendees included Kenya Moore and a handsome white man she is reportedly dating, and Kim Fields and her husband. Porsha was there without her latest
trick um dude. Claudia was there with a date but did not stay too long, she was just there to wish Kenya well on her endeavor. And all the folks you see pictured above. Kandi Burruss there but VERY briefly, she had another event related to Bronners I think it was a Toya Wright event. Also, some sites say Demetria McKinney was there, she was not. Peter was also NOT there. Interesting?
So to address rumors, Claudia was there for a bit, and mic’d. She was with actor Rob Riley. I doubt she will be on the episode, she was just making a brief appearance and left with Rob after making her rounds. She is unlikely to be back on RHOA as I mentioned she has other things going on. Amiyah Scott was there. And she was filmed. She did get to sit down, unlike Sheree who is standing there fanning her menopausal self out of camera range. To be fair, multiple told me it was quite hot in there. But, it’s clear Sheree is not even in the mix, unless she starts kissing Kenya ass in a very big way. She tried to come for Kenya at Cynthia’s event, and that may have been her major mistake. It would not surprise me for Sheree to start eating Kenya’s tossed salad though. Despite TMZ’s constant attempt to tell us who is replacing Nene, no one is replacing Nene, Kenya simply took her rightful place as QUEEN.
In my opinion, someone in production is trying to leak the whole HEY LOOK! WE HAVE A TRANSGENDER filming with us on RHOA. I find it a ridiculous and offensive ploy by production to see how it plays. RHOA has consistently gone for the gays in women’s heels and finger snapping bitches to represent the gay men of Atlanta. It’s an extremely pandering and unfair representation of the gay men I know and love in this town and none of us are amused. Just as Bravo attempts to represent all women from Atlanta as ratchet and black, the gay image is even worse. Amiyah is on the Internet “interviewing” about her transition asking, ” Are butterflies animals?” and displaying the intellect of a general hoodrat. She’s 27 and .. her claim to fame seems to be dating rappers on the down low. Allegedly. She’s be great for Love and Hip Hop. But not for RHOA.
So, to sum it up, someone sent TMZ a photo of a transgender woman filming a scene on RHOA. Because transgender is the new gay. I’m sort of repulsed by the whole bandwagon concept. But Bravo has no boundaries, and no issue for using women, black women, gay men, black gay men or any other group to mock. And as long as they pay them well, they will continue to do so. And as long as we tune in, they will continue.
Atlanta is full of local women of all races to publicize. Gay men of all varieties to showcase. But somehow, they always manage to showcase brawling black women and gay men teetering in loubs. And this is all decided by white men in NYC and rubber stamped by black gay showrunners. It’s kind of pathetic. And it is not an accident.
Will they decide to go even further and bring in a 27 year old onto this show only to exploit her? I hope not. And according to my production sources, she was just invited to “test”. So we might see here again, but I really doubt it. And contrary to what TMZ says she is neither a RHOA or a FOH. In the fierce race for FOH between Marlo, Mallory and Sheree, bitch doesn’t stand a chance.
