Girl, do I have some hot TEA to spill from over this past weekend. I guess I should start with the NBC Universal (Bravo) upfronts and who was there, and who wasn’t. Honey, from #RHOA the only girls that were in attendance were NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore. For those who don’t know what upfronts are, they’re presentations of the networks upcoming and current shows with the stars and network executives pretty much meeting and wooing new advertisers.
What does this all mean in the long run? Well, right now that means that contracts are being negotiated and these are the girls the network and production have decided to keep right away. Not in attendance where Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams & Claudia Jordan. Last year Bravo only invited select Housewives to the upfronts but this year other shows like #RHONY and #RHOC had their full casts in attendance.
So here’s some TEA from New York! Honey, Cynthia Bailey was in the city to promote her new eyewear line but wasn’t nowhere near that damn upfront party (ala didn’t get invited). If y’all remember Sheree Whitfield was flown out to New York right after the season 4 reunion wrapped during upfront week and was let go from the series. Could Cynthia be the first casualty of the upcoming changes for Season 8? I for one hope not as she actually brought some character this past season.
Anyway honey, all this leads into Kandi’s Premiere/Birthday Party for her new show “Kandi’s Ski Trip” yesterday. To which there will be some tea I noticed from that event too.
