TAMARA TATTLES EXCLUSIVE
First of all, Andy’s Instagram dramatics seem to be working. They even made me pick up the phone and call a few people, and y’all know I’d rather eat glass than talk on the phone. Well, unless I am half a bottle in the Merlot. 🙂 It’s too early for Merlot plus I am doing a detox during this Lentil season to atone for all deaths I caused and cancer I inflicted on people with my powerful mind. Or because my liver demanded a break. So there I was sober, in the light of day, talking to sources, because there was some DRAMA at the RHOA reunion yesterday.
Or was there?
First and foremost, as a Kenya fan, I was worried that Matt crashed the reunion. That did not happen. It doesn’t even sound like he was mentioned much at all. Kenya was involved in arguments in support of Kandi, but she was not a major focus of the vitriol slinging. I did ask about Matt claiming he was deprived of a $10K payout for not being on the reunion in his rant yesterday. I was told Matt was never paid for any appearance on RHOA reunion or otherwise. Only the husbands are paid for the reunion. That was actually the most interesting thing I found out. So the big drama was not about Kenya and Matt.
Next, I thought maybe it was Sheree‘s domestic violence with Bob that got really deep and that is what shook Andy. While Bob was there, and the topic was discussed, and Sheree was upset, that was not what Andy was referring to either. I should point out that everyone I asked about this issue made it very clear that Bob was an abusive husband and Sheree is being truthful for once. This reminded me of when Sheree tried to get a restraining order on me. When you go to court for a restraining order there are a lot of other people there being heard for the same thing. So we sat through heartbreaking stories of terrified abused women. Then Sheree got up there looking like a fool while perjuring herself and the order was denied. That situation seems even more appalling in light of the new information that she has been in an abusive marriage.
Cynthia was mostly drama free. Peter was there and got very drunk at the open bar while waiting for his turn. He was such a hot mess they had to take him off camera. Clearly, he was not on a liver cleanse. There was no “nervous breakdown” or “paramedics” I’m not sure where y’all get this stuff. It was just drunkass Peter being Peter and embarrassing himself.
So what the hell was it? It was Phaedra. I have always presumed that Andy Cohen knew what a fraud Phaedra is. Andy seems to read A LOT of stuff online about himself and the housewives. He definitely reads his tweets. When he says things to her on WWHL like, “So you are divorced now…” And Phaedra goes along with it, I assumed he knew the real deal and he just likes watching Phaedra lie.
I’m still not sure I believe what I am being told. But my sources are golden and tell me the same thing. Apparently, Andy saw Phaedra for who she is last night. FOR THE FIRST TIME. Is that possible?
I’m told it went down like this. Kandi came hard for Porsha. So Porsha rolled over on Phaedra admitting that everything she said was told to her by Phaedra. On the phone with my sources I’m thinking, “DUH, everyone knows this.” Well apparently Andy didn’t know it. Suddenly Phaedra is on the hotseat. Again, the seating was set up for this very situation. How would Andy not know this? Eventually, Phaedra has no out, except for one. She blamed Carlos. She said Carlos told her all the stuff about the sex dungeon and “Marvin.”
If you are like me, at this point in the story you are thinking, “Wouldn’t Phaedra know more of Kandi’s personal information that Carlos King?” I am only reporting what I am told. So Carlos was behind the entire storyline against Kandi. I’m not surprised. But I am sure that Phaedra was more than willing to take that storyline and run with it.
Basically, Andy’s reaction about “stuff coming out” was about Phaedra basically admitting she set Porsha up with the lies to tell on Kandi. Again, THIS IS NOT NEWS TO US! HOW IS THIS NEWS TO ANDY? But apparently it was. Phaedra has always been Andy’s favorite RHOA. This time he finally went hard on Phaedra and told her she knew exactly what she was doing when she feed dumb old Porsha the information. Also, Phaedra brought in some paperwork she claimed proved her divorce was final. If you recall, Phaedra tried to file for divorce using fake names. Apparently he believe that too and was shocked when Kenya pointed out that she has filed invalid divorce documents.
In the end, Phaedra got the really bad edit as a liar and a shit stirrer. It’s about time. But again, this is not shocking to anyone but Andy. I wondered if all the mentions of Carlos would be aired and a source said that it would probably be edited to say “a producer.”
Once again, Porsha gets a pass. She apparently broke down in hysterics when she outed Phaedra as the source of everything. Again. When Porsha was on WWHL she was asked by a caller why she didn’t roll over on Phaedra IN FRONT OF ANDY. I realize none of this makes sense. I am reporting what I was told by a source who was there. This is their take on the situation. I didn’t get a huge amount of detail. But sources were clear that Andy was having some sort of come to Jesus moment about Phaedra. As soon as Porsha rolled on Phaedra, Porsha was more or less forgotten about and Phaedra was raked over the coals.
I just realized I didn’t ask about the dresses. I had heard that it was an all gold reunion. My sources aren’t exactly people who would have a lot of insight on that anyway, so I went to IG again just now and found two photos. One of Kenya and one of Porsha. Looks like maybe all glitter everything? Or Porsha is colorblind?
This was a confusing let down to me, to be honest. Not nearly as dramatic as what y’all are emailing me about. But it is what it is. These are the facts.
But then, I got the tea on the Season 10 cast. Now THAT is interesting.
To be continued…
UPDATED FOR THOSE WHO REFUSED TO BELIEVE THAT OTHER SITES REPORTING TODD ACCUSED PORSHA OF SLEEPING WITH APOLLO AT THE REUNION WERE FULL OF SHIT.
Say it with me now, TAMARA IS ALWAYS RIGHT BECAUSE TAMARA HAS GOOD SOURCES.
