The Tea: According to the tattles at Tamara Tattles and her comment section snitches who have all the tea:
- When the Real Housewives of Atlanta arrived, the place fell silent and everyone was stunned by their fabulousness;
- John Mayer, who is Cohen’s buddy, was impressed with Leakes who kept everyone in stitches;
- Cohen was surprised to see Phaedra Parks who he had fired there and who Leakes probably invited in a rumored attempt to keep the RHOA franchise amidst falling ratings
- Beador was reportedly wasted
- Grammar and Rinna had a little fight and Cohen went over to them and said save it for the Reunion show
- Rinna was the life of the party and got everyone to dance on tables
- Notably absent were Bethenny Frankel (who had a speaking engagement) and Countess LuAnn from RHONY; Monique Samuels from RHOP (who is a brand new mom); Lisa Vanderpump from RHOBH (who is rumored to be leaving and feuding with Richards); Kelly Dodd and Heather Dubrow from RHOOC; Tinsley Mortimer from RONY; Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss from RHOA (though she is on Celebrity Big Brother right now and Williams is heavily pregnant and maybe couldn’t get on a plane); Melissa Gorga of RHONJ
- Marlo Hampton was not an original invited guest but came to surprise Cohen who picked her up and twirled her around when he saw her.
- Ashley Darby from RHOP looked pregnant and having just peeped her Instagram, it looks true.
- Leakes was caught on her phone amidst all the hoopla
- Most got along.
- Danielle Staub manipulated the media to get a last minute pity invite and showed up with a gift and glammed out…allegedly

They noshed on Chinese chicken and lobster Cobb salad, Salmon with Mango Salsa, Filet Mignon, Chicken Paillard, grilled asparagus, fried potatoes, spinach and grilled polenta cakes.
