Once again, Tamara Tattles has all the EXCLUSIVE tea on the RHOA Reunion. Please credit Tamara Tattles as your source when using this exclusive information. This year, the reunion had to tape in the NYC area because the long time venue, The Biltmore Ballroom in Downtown Atlanta is not COVID friendly. It lacks associated support areas. For example, the makeshift dressing rooms are separated by curtains and the control room is literally six feet away from the set and is only separated from the main ballroom by a curtain.
The new reunion venue allowed for all cast to have their own dressing room in a self-contained hotel room. The RHOA reunion shot in Jersey City at the Westin, which is the same place where the RHOP reunion was taped. Bravo and Truly Original mainly chose New Jersey due to financial considerations. In the future, RHOA reunions will likely tape in the NYC area.
How They Got There Is Very Telling
As for the cast, TamaraTattles can exclusively report they travelled to NYC in waves. Kenya/Brooklyn, Kandi, Cynthia, and Marlo travelled via chartered jet along with some Atlanta based producers. Shamea, Drew/Ralph, and Porsha travelled first class on Delta together, LaToya/Von travelled on a separate Delta flight.
The theme this season is Dungeonesque. All dark colors for the set – red, grey, and black. The cast were dressed in mostly black. Marlo seemed to be shopping in NYC last minute for her dress. Maybe she didn’t like her first option when she got there? The “nieces” Porsha, Drew, Marlo and Shamea were all ready to amp up against the “aunties” Kenya, Cynthia, Kandi, and Latoya. This sounds like the olden days of the talls versus the smalls.
Who Brought The Most?
Drumroll please… In order of who brought the most…
NUMBER ONE: PORSHA
Porsha repeated several times that she is “a grown ass woman who can do as she pleases.” Basically stating if she fucked BOLO it’s between the two of them. (She totally did). She came for Kenya on why she is hell bent on keeping a feud going. Marlo was a big target for her despite Marlo supposedly being a “niece.” She told Marlo that she needs to worry about her own sexcapades. She said that Marlo needs to let the peach holders carry the show because she’s doing “double the work for half the pay.” Porsha was the best dressed by far. When specifically asked who on the cast does she consider a friend outside of the show her answer was Shamea and Drew. Cynthia was the only one surprised by her answer.
NUMBER TWO(heh): KENYA
Kenya lashed out on Porsha, Drew, and Latoya as expected. She told Drew that no one wanted her to join the group and she did her a favor by even acknowledging her this season. WOW. It seems she thinks that Drew would be getting fired if Kenya hadn’t provided her with someone to spar with. She regrets doing that because as we know here at Tamara Tattles Drew is coming back. She accuses Latoya of making shit up to get camera time. Because, OBVIOUSLY. She was specifically asked when will she or Marc file for divorce to end their train wreck marriage and it was a complete non-answer. Production has been unable to find a marriage license for this couple and Kenya has never produced one.
NUMBER THREE: LATOYA
Apparently, Latoya used to call Kenya with plot lines against Drew and Porsha. When Kenya didn’t take the bait she switched over to Porsha, Drew, Marlo and Shamea and tried to do the same. Both sides blew her off so she just looks like a snake. It seems that is why she was after Falynn. That and jealousy in general. Latoya said “I’m just a friend of the show” to Drew during their argument. Of course, she had a lot of scenes cut. The original plan was for her to be sixth housewife. Tamara Tattles can exclusively report that in one of those scenes she was telling everyone that she was fucking two men behind her soon to be ex-husband’s back. She was still living with her husband at the time. Tamara Tattles can also exclusively report that a little bit of her promiscuous activity actually airs in a future episode. Drew calls her out on it.
Tamara Tattles’ exclusive sources have previously indicated that there is no path forward with Latoya Ali. However, as I am writing this recap, I was informed that the Bravo suits liked the performance of “everyone.” I quickly followed up with questions about Latoya and have not heard back. I’ll keep y’all updated. I was already nervous when my sources ranked her third in their line up. Le sigh. Updated, heard back from SOURCE who says they still don’t think that Latoya stands a chance to return, sigh of RELIEF!
NUMBER FOUR: DREW
This one surprised me, but Drew fought for and secured her peach. Drew came for Kenya asking why she always comes for the new girl on the show. She gave an update on her and husband’s marriage counseling. Drew gave Latoya the business about everything from her past Youtube videos calling black women monkeys with big lips. She confronted her about tweeting about her husband. Drew mentioned claims of Latoya shoplifting and trying to fuck a pastor. She also did a good job on defense, as opposed to Latoya, Drew didn’t really start any arguments she just did a good job at finishing them. Most notable moment for Drew was her telling Kenya to “make sure you get a refund” in reference to her “marriage” to Marc Daly. I don’t know about y’all but I would have placed this as NUMBER ONE. (The ranking was done by TamaraTattles exclusive source)
NUMBER FIVE: MARLO
Just like she did during the season, Marlo played a very good political game at the RHOA reunion. She is allies with everyone on the show except Porsha. She explained that Porsha gave her an ultimatum, either be friends with Kenya or be friends with me, not both. She referred to insecurities within the group which offended Porsha. Also, she said she heard the noises and believes there was sex in the house, which pissed Porsha off. Marlo left things on a “let’s see where it goes in the future” terms with Porsha. Marlo raising those boys has turned her into a much more likeable person.
NUMBER SIX: KANDI
Kandi played it safe because she is safe and has no real grudge against anyone. Production had hoped she would say more about the Bolo situation. However, she stated she heard what Kenya heard but stayed as vague as she possibly could. She states she didn’t understand why Kenya was hell bent on putting all the details of the trip out there. There was a group consensus that either Kenya or Latoya leaked it to Page Six. Sidenote: It was totally Kenya, come on. Or Latoya did it because Kenya told her to.
NUMBER SEVEN: SHAMEA
Shamea played a good friend to Porsha as expected. Added in her opinion when asked. Executives have always been fond of Shamea because of her natural chemistry and connection to the group. Fun fact: she and Drew both acted in the TLC Movie. Tamara Tattles sources exclusively report she is expected to return next season as an elevated friend of the show. She has previously declined the opportunity to test for a full-time role on the show.
NUMBER EIGHT: CYNTHIA
Cynthia basically just sat there and looked pretty.
