I leave the house for a few hours and all hell breaks loose. I knew the Jamaica trip had broken before I left the house, but I had stuff to do and contacts haven’t had a whole lot to say about it. First let me address the TMZ story. I don’t know what is wrong with them lately, but they are getting a lot of stuff dead wrong. It seems whoever is writing their many times a day updates about Lamar and Khloe has decided to write the RHOA posts. It’s clear they just had the photo and no other information. Everything they say about Nene is wrong. They seem to think she is “on break from ‘her gameshow'” um. Noe. Nene shot six episodes of To Tell The Truth in two days during the first week of July. It’s four months later, and if it aired, I missed it. Nene is currently preparing for her upcoming role on Broadway. And she still has a month to learn those lines. So she certainly has time for a free trip to a Jamaica to torment team pretty. The producers are actually thrilled with this season and didn’t beg her to do anything. They have all the ratchet they need with Porsha and Shamea.
Oh and she isn’t “returning to the show” she is filming a dinner scene as I type this bringing the drama to the very end of the season. Anyway, enough TMZ bashing. I would not have pointed all of that out but y’all take TMZ as gospel and I just had to set the record straight.
Here is what I know. I received information on Monday that there was an all in trip to Jamaica that included husbands and FOHs and pretty much whoever wanted to come. The crew arrived on Monday but no housewives were there. I found this odd. Monday was Phaedra’s birthday and she was celebrating that. Saturday is Halloween and Cynthia has an appearance at a party in Atlanta. So I waited for information. Then, yesterday afternoon the girls left and arrived early last evening. Phaedra was still in birthday celebration mode so that is likely the “reason” for the trip. However, it looks like the trip will be three nights (this is night two) and the gang will be back on Friday or possibly early Saturday because some of the housewives have prior commitments.
As for why Nene decided to crash the last filming event of the season? Well, if you’ve noticed, Nene has not been updating her site, her Twitter is just photos of people in her t-shirts. When she does talk about herself it is about how her life is so great without the RHOA. She is really trying to sell that point. But I imagine the truth is she can’t stand the fact the show actually went on without her and has a great trailer released. The show is about to start and she is not on it. So she floated the idea of crashing filming in Jamaica. The pretense will be that she wanted to wish her very good friend (that she hasn’t spoken to since she left the show) Phaedra’s birthday.
They are actually filming the dinner as we speak, so my sources don’t have any info on the drama for me yet. But I should be hearing something soon. I’ll get it to you when I can.
Oh and some of you were asking if Kenya is there because she is not in the photo. She is of course.
Finally, this is nothing to freak out about. This is the second time Nene has turned up on a housewives set this month. She was just at Nobu Malibu during a dinner scene for RHOBH at the beginning of the month. It’s unlikely that she can contribute much to this dinner as she would have no idea what the storylines are and who is fighting with who until production tells her.
I should know more soon. Apologies for the delay, I had a lot of personal business to take care of in the real world, it took forever and I haven’t eaten all day. I’m super tired. But when I know something interesting, I’ll get back to you.
