First, I have learned my lesson about speculating about where the housewives are and what they are doing before I can confirm with my sources. I’ve mentioned before than I have to have very specific questions to ask some of my sources. So this time, I felt confident that the ladies were going to support Jill Zarin because Cynthia goes every year, and this year, with the horrible prognosis for Bobby, I stupidly thought that maybe the RHOA would all rally to show some compassion. I was wrong. I hate being wrong. I apologize for being wrong. I did say I had not spoken with my sources to confirm. I have now spoken to my sources and here is what is really happening.
All six ladies are in San Francisco.
You will not believe the storyline. BECAUSE THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS STORYLINE EVER IN REAL HOUSEWIVES HISTORY. First a history lesson.
April 2012 Nene Leakes says she is “sick of the gay people.” Every opportunity that Nene has been presented has come from a gay man. First and foremost, Bravo Andy, the gay man who is holding the camera for this video. Then there is Chris Colfer who suggested to Ryan Murphy that Nene would be a good choice to play Roz Washington on Glee. Gay men have been very, very good to Nene Leakes. So please tell me that she is not stupid enough to be saying what she it sounds like she is saying at the 46 second mark of this video. The video is no longer there, but what she said was, “I am sick of all the gay people.”
If you only read one link ever on this site, make it this interview with Miss Lawrence about why he left RHOA. Short version, it was Nene and others disrespect of the gay community.
I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, “Tamara, I came here for the tea on RHOA filming. Why are we getting links to Nene Leakes being disrespectful to the gay community? We watch the show, they are all anti-gay. Even Kenya Moore gay bashed Kim Fields husband for an entire season. Get to the tea!”
Fine. The tea begins with Nene Leakes throwing a “Gurls and Gays” party last week. She called it a White Party, but apparently it was a party about how much Nene Leakes just loves gay men. Remember how she treated Dwight like gum stuck to her Louboutins? Well, this season we get a new and improved gay loving Nene. So production hired a bunch of gay guys to lounge around her house. I’m going to guess that didn’t go as well as they would like.
So at the white party, everyone (except Kim) was invited to go on a girl’s trip with Nene to San Francisco. Because Nene loves gay people.
So yesterday the traipsed around the Castro section of San Francisco, one of the oldest gay neighborhoods in the country to show their newfound love for the gay community. Frankly, I want to puke.
They are staying at Hotel Via in south beach. It’s a beautiful, new boutique hotel with stunning views and a roof top bar. Filming for today just began.
Tonight they are going out to a gay club. I will be sending spies. Email me if you are in San Francisco and a gay guy that wants to go out tonight.
Tomorrow they are headed to Napa Valley for a wine tasting.
This is all smacks of the plan by the two new (gay, natch) showrunners wanting to rehabilitate all the gay bashing and trying to elevate the show out of the ratchetness into a classier look. But really, with these women is any of this going to be believable? Can you imagine these women in a gay bar for the evening?
This is dumber than that time a gay journalist took Nene to the White House Correspondence dinner.
As for the interactions between the ladies, everyone is getting along fine except for Nene and Porsha. While everyone wants Porsha fired (except Sheree who needs someone to film with) Nene appears to be leading the charge to make that a reality.
Stay tuned. I’ll have more soon.
