I received a good bit of RHOA filming tea last week from a variety of sources. The first information was about a scene filmed with Marlo and Nene the day after the Pride Parade in NYC.
The pair filmed at the Central Park Boathouse. My source on the scene said that Nene looked really great. When she walked into the restaurant, all heads turned trying to figure out who she was. My source said that she looks like she’s had a massive amount of plastic surgery. She is almost 100% unrecognizable from season one.
After maybe 30-45 minutes of RHOA filming/eating at the table, Nene walked away from the table and began to talk to the director of photography. She seemed mildly annoyed, but nothing that major.Maybe 15 seconds later, Marlo came flying out of the area where they were seated (in a semi-private place in the restaurant)and ran into the main part of the dining room.
The Great Pedicab Escape!
The crew wasn’t able to film in the main dining area so they ducked out the back way to catch up to Marlo. At that point, Nene also left the area where their table was.
When the crew made it outside Nene was in a pedicab just outside the Boathouse. The crew began to film her and Nene was talking to the crew.
Since Nene is an impossibly tall 6-foot woman in 4” heels and a golden jumpsuit it was quite the spectable. Especially with the camera crew, breathlessly chasing her. A crowd began to form outside of the restaurant.
RHOA Filming Draws A Crowd
Marlo apparently hid in the restaurant bathroom before coming outside. Eventually, she came outside and walked quickly toward Nene who was in the pedicab,surrounded by production. Then, the pedicab left with Nene as Marlo shouted, “I know you’re not going to leave me here.” After Nene left they filmed Marlo outside of the restaurant for maybe 2 minutes. Then they shut it down and left Central Park.
This is interesting because as Tamara Tattles previously reported, Marlo Hampton and Yovanna Love and to some degree Tanya Sam are supposed to be the people who keep Nene up to date while she is filming apart from the rest of the cast. Marlo’s primary role this season is to get along with Nene.
The Wig Shift
That leads us to Nene’s grand return in the season’s first all cast. I received multiple reports from new sources on this event. Some of the reports seemed to contradict each other. The gist of this scene was that Marlo is apparently trying to have a wig line. I have no evidence that it actually exists yet, but that never stops these women from having a premature reveal party.
What has been confirmed is that season one Kenya Moore is back. I hated Kenya Moore on her first season. I was hoping for calm, cool and collected Kenya. Instead we have messy, fake, dramatic Kenya. Since it was the first all cast, everyone had to be there. Kenya showed up to RHOA filming with gift bags of Kenya Moore hair care products. Obviously, this did not go over well with Marlo. And drama ensued. Kenya ended up twirling out of the event early. This was the second bit of filming news where Nene was described as “low-key.” Perhaps it was more like her stankface. Other than Kenya’s messiness, the event seemed fairly calm. Nene seemed to take her Moore Hair Care gift bag and dip pretty early in.
Eva Marcille’s Peach Is Not Secured
Despite Eva having a much more lucrative job as a DJ for a Dallas radio station, she is desperate to keep her peach. Tamara Tattles exclusive source says the executives are beginning a conversation about what to do with Eva. The Eva conversation is in its early stages. The problem is who would be her replacement? So the network is having a lot of internal discussion about it. They SHOULD know by the end of month. As for now she is contracted for RHOA filming on a per episode basis. She does have some drama with Kenya and she’s trying to amp it up. So time will tell.
Sheree Declines A Return To RHOA Filming?
The most shocking news is that Sheree was in discussions to appear on the next season. Sheree didn’t take it because the network would not guarantee her anything. She would’ve been given a day rate in a crowded market. There are already too many friends this season. She would’ve had minimal screen time and shoot days. There was no contract presented it was just a few email exchanges that went nowhere.
With Nene Leakes finally being integrated with the full cast, RHOA Filming is finally fully underway.
