Its nearly two weeks since the airing of part four of the reunion and people are still talking about what executive producer Andy Cohen called the Megawatt Lie. While Bravo still haven’t officially announced her status, Cohen recently told “E” Parks, co-stars had no desire to film alongside her ever again. Which basically says, No Gurl ,you wont be back! Parks maintain she was set up by the producers. Could she be telling the truth?
People are STILL SQUAKING about the ATL Ladies
Earlier Today, Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County #RHOCO took to Facebook to share her thoughts about The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 reunion drama involving her fellow Bravo star Phaedra Parks. “When you make up a lie about a cast mate (or husband) and try to destroy their character & reputation, YOU SHOULD BE FIRED,”
Bethenny Frankel, from the Real Housewives of New York #RHONY talked to US Magazine and said the reunion “made her feel dirty” “It was disgusting,” ““I don’t think Phaedra can bounce back from that,” Frankel concluded of the drama.
Frankel disagrees with Parks
She tells “E” “I’ve been doing this for 10 years,” “I actually, sadly, consider myself to be a veteran. The producers do not make you do these things at all.” “The producers don’t know exactly what’s going on, so they might say, ‘Are you going to talk to Kandi about this?’ They don’t know,” Bethenny insists producers would never plant a lie on the Housewives; saying the drama is real.
A Parks source said there was “a producer who told her the drug and rape story, which she repeated to another cast member. It snowballed. The editing was not kind to her.”
Sources close to the ex-Housewife told TMZ she’s mad as hell, because she claims a producer gave her the B.S. story she told to Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss — the whole drugging and raping thing.
The producer didn’t necessarily tell her to repeat it with cameras rolling, but we’re told Phaedra explained the producer’s role during the reunion show. She’s also angry because that was edited out of the reunion to make it look like she acted alone.
We’re told the way Phaedra sees it, she was fired in retaliation for throwing producers under the bus. We’re told Phaedra insists the ‘Housewives’ crew knows she’s not the source of the lie. Sources said , she said she outted the producers and it was cut from the show. They’re not allowed to break the ‘fourth wall’ and talk about production. It may not have been entirely Phaedra’s fault, but she has to take the fall,” the source said.
Is the producer Carlos King? If so,what was his motive?
There are many rumors circling the Former Real Housewives of Atlanta producer Carlos King. Yes, like Parks, King will not return for season 10.
Carlos King insist’s he wasn’t fired He says his production company, Kingdom Reign, signed a production deal with ITV in November of last year and that he told the cast in January that he was leaving.

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. Phaedra 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. .
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.”

From Bossip: “Our sources also say that Phaedra tried to blame the lesbian & date rape lie she fed Porsha Williams on producer Carlos King,” wrote B. Scott.”Which might have something to do with why he won’t be back to work on the show next year.” (4/10/17)
Sheree Whitfield has had an issue with Mr King. In 2015, Ms Whitfield told the press she was “duped” by Carlos King. At the time she was a friend and thought she would receive her “Peach” following the departure of Nene Leakes in a backroom deal she brokered with shows former producer Carlos King. She learned she would only appear in some of the episode in season 8. She didn’t learn this until after production. According to a source, Whitfield met with the reality show producer earlier this year (2015)and pitched him a concept – a show about African-American real estate agents in Atlanta.
When Whitfield departed from the show three years ago she went on to get her real estate license and had been selling properties since.She wanted to be featured in the new show along with several other women she knew were also having success in the world of real estate and believed King could help her sell the show to a network.
‘Without telling Sheree, Carlos started pitching the show to networks and WE TV became interested,’ claims the source. He sold them the concept without Sheree’s involvement and then had to go back to her with a make-good once he did.
Is Carlos King “The Streets” and is there Bad Blood With Todd Tucker?
Is Phaedra telling the truth? Is a producer? Could it be Revenge? When I think of it? It was odd that Todd Tucker remained on stage through part 4. Normally the husbands have a segment on the reunion show and then are dismissed however, Todd remained. Perhaps Todd suspected King was involved.
(Edited) From Straight from the A (3/19/2017) Todd and Carlos were once partners in TV One’s “Hollywood Divas” Produced by Tuckers’ TTucker Productions and King’s Kingdom Reign Entertainment.
Todd and Carlos were partners in “Hollywood Divas “their business relationship soured because they couldn’t see eye to eye about how to handle production and the two lost a lot of money. Tucker and King are reportedly aren’t on speaking terms.
Kandi unhappy with King
Carlos King is working on an Xscape documentary with Jermaine Dupri. Word on the curb is that Kandi had no clue about the project and was actually planning one of her own prior to finding out.
Apparently Kandi doesn’t own any rights to Xscape or their music but Jermaine does and Dupri has been working with King to produce it. Needless to say, Kandi was apparently livid about the news and felt that Carlos intentionally deceived her. The trio have been at odds ever since.
Kandi and her reunited girl group Xscape have been working with Mona Scott Young (Carlos King’s former boss who fired him from LHHATL). It seems that Carlos was trying to get the jump on Mona and he succeeded by going straight to Jermaine!
I was also told that Carlos interviewed Mama Joyce for information about Xscape but at the time he did, Kandi had no idea that it was for the project with Jermaine.

As it stands of this writing, there will be two Xscape pics. The Dupri project is not endorsed by any member of Xscape.
