What the hell is going on with TMZ? I swear, sometime they have great, factual exclusives and other times it is nothing but whatthefuckness. Almost all of the Bravo related posts fall into the last category lately. I posted their Teresa Giudice story with a healthy dose of side eye. It was a slow day for good tea, and it was fun to think about Teresa going back to the pokey even though realistically that is never going to happen. At least not on the current offense.
Lately, TMZ has been obsessed with Apollo. In the past 24 days they have published five stories on a Z list “celebrity” who has been sitting in prison. Can he really be that interesting? In one story, they falsely claimed that Apollo didn’t want to see his boys while he was in prison. Someone tweeted on his behalf that was bullshit.
Then he called TMZ FROM PRISON to tell them, he did want to see them in prison and that Phaedra would be bringing them up “soon.” On last week’s RHOA he also told Ayden that daddy would be home “soon” so clearly “soon” is a very relative term.
Now today, conveniently on the day RHOA airs they have an EXCLUSIVE STORY! What’s the earth shattering news? It’s that Todd and Kandi answer his calls from prison and put money on his books. Even if I believed that, and I don’t, how is this a story? If one of my sources told me that, I’d hold on to it for a longer post where that minor point might be relevant. If I mentioned it at all. I think everyone assumes that Todd would be willing to pick up Apollo’s calls. Apollo would not be calling Kandi at all. And I doubt either of them go out of their way to put money on his books.
So because I am in my “what does this all meeeeeaaaannnnn????” state of mind today, I’m going to say that Bravo is throwing some coins at TMZ. They sure do like information to hit on a show night. I wonder if we will see something about the Real Housewives of the Potomac before the day is over?
It seems like a slow weekend at TMZ.
