UPDATED: I have new confirmation that Tammy will definitely NOT be getting a peach. Exclusive Tamaratattles source says,”Bravo is done with her.” Whatever went down in Miami has caused an irreparable falling out. The end. According to my trusted sources.
Well isn’t that an interesting photo. I’m not sure exactly how this photo ended up on Twitter this afternoon. It is an untouched photo from the photo shoot I told you about here. In this photo, Kenya’s jumpsuit is green and Phaedra’s dress is white. Kenya confirmed that her jumpsuit was actually green and they changed it to blue for some reason. Phaedra’s dress is changed to pink in the photos that Bravo released. Phaedra’s legs are also photoshopped in the photos that were released. In my initial post about the photoshoot I said, ” However, last week, the RHOA actually shot a new opening. It’s been a million years since they have had a new opening. And all EIGHT women [including Tammy and Sheree] were there. Everyone shot a single shot. Several versions of the group shot were shot. With everyone. ”
It’s clear that someone leaked this photo deliberately on the day of the RHOA premiere. But why? There are two possible explanations. Let’s consider all the evidence.
As I pointed out before, Tammy McCall was listed in the cast photo that Bravo selected. See caption above. They cleared edited her out of the photo when the did the other photshopping. Bravo did not release a bio on Tammy McCall even though they did release bios on both Sheree and Shamea referring to them in captions as “housewife.”
I’ve always said that productions was IN LOVE with Tammy. Literally every update I got included a comment on how great Tammy was. The housewives liked he way better than Kim Fields. Seriously, it was a love fest for Tammy. I even said in my last post about casting and filming, ” Also, Tammy filmed A LOT. She was at many, many things, so I don’t know how they are going to cut her out completely. It is unlikely but not impossible that she will turn up with a peach at some point. Even though the screeners are out for episode one, things could change. In the past new housewives have been introduced a few episodes in and the opening scene changes to include a new person. And seven peaches would not be unusual. I’m just saying…”
I surely would not be surprised if Tammy got a peach a few episodes in to the season. It would make sense considering how much filming she has done. However, something changed radically after the Miami trip where Glen Rice Jr allegedly knocked her unconscious to the floor. Whatever issues that situation caused, that production is completely buttoned up about would have to be resolved for her to get a peach.
Because this is a raw photo, and not a photoshopped on that leaked today, that makes things a bit more mysterious. If the photo had been finished and ready for use on the show, I’d say this is evidence that Tammy is coming in as a peach holder. But since I knew these photos were taken, as well as photos with Sheree in the picture, I am less convinced. I still think we will be seeing plenty of Tammy either way. I think it is more likely than not they will give Tammy a peach at some point in the season.
And I also think that Bravo deliberately leaked this photo today to stir up interest in the premiere. Stay tuned. It’s going to be a long season.
Also, as a PSA. “RHOA” will tape as a TWO HOUR show tonight. It’s actually only an hour and 15 minutes with a 45 minute episode of WWHL tacked on. Shady Andy will have Kenya’s archnemesis from Celebrity Apprentice, Vivica A Fox on tonight with Kandi Burrus. Clearly, he could not go one episode without shading her.
