Another day, another Real Housewife getting her own show. This time, it’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks, and while who doesn’t love Phaedra and her charming Southern drawl? — enough already, Bravo!
The spinoff, tentatively called “Rich People’s Problems,” will focus on Phaedra’s originalcareer as an attorney (as opposed to a mortician or donkey booty workout instructor), and it will follow her around as she sorts out the legal disputes of Atlanta’s elite. “Whether it’s friends battling over an $8,000 loan or accusations of stolen Chanel handbags … the rich certainly have an odd sense of what qualifies it as a problem in today’s world, and Phaedra will be there to help them sort it all out,” the tagline reads.
Oh. Okay. Read more…
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is back, minus Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton, plus Kenya Moore and Porsha Willams-Stewart. Don’t try to do the math, it still equals all the drama one could ever hope for.
The teaser at the beginning is like whoa. Apollo might be cheating with one of the new girls, NeNe is dating her ex-husband Gregg, Kim is pregnant and about to be homeless, Kandi’s in lurvveee and possibly tying the knot, Cynthia is all about The Bailey Agency and Kenya is the self-appointed coochie crack police at the Bailey Agency. And Phaedra? Well, she’s focused on her business ventures as always. Keep reading »
The thing that defines these two reality show nutters is their penchant for ridiculous one-liners. “I was as crazy as a vampire in sunlight,” “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks proclaimed about giving birth. “Winning!” Courtney Robertson cried as she capably seduced “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik. But that is where the similarities in their craziness end. Courtney is cold and calculating, while Phaedra is a self-described “Southern belle.” Courtney set her sights on winning the heart of a fratty winemaker, while Phaedra’s goal is to own a funeral home. Who do you think is the nuttiest reality TV fruitcake?

Nene Leakes is SO OVER. Atlanta’s most entertaining Housewife by far is Phaedra Parks, the attorney, new mom, and self-described Southern belle of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” This season, Phaedra has really come into her own, delivering even more hilarious, yet inspiring quotes, all while she considers opening her own funeral home (?!), keeps her ex-con hubby Apollo in check, raises their baby Ayden, and parties with strippers. Some people — ahem, Cynthia’s cranky husband Peter — think Phaedra is dumb, but I think she’s savvy and witty. After the jump, 18 pieces of Phaedra’s amazing wisdom. Keep reading »
Did you happen to catch last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta”? I hope so, because it was ridiculous. RiDICKulous. Kandi threw herself a 35th birthday party and Phaedra — who has swiftly become my favorite Housewife of all time, more on that in another post — invited a special guest to entertain them. His name is Ridiculous, and he is a male stripper with a penis so big, he can suck it himself. And he does! As part of his routine! Ridiculous’s penis is so big, Bravo felt the need to blur out his bulge. Sadly, they only showed us the shocked reactions of the partygoers — not to mention uptight tantrums from Nene and Kandi’s mom — to his “performance.” I think Ridiculous seems very talented and I would be interested in reviewed his services in person some time. Call me, Phaedra. [BravoTV]
“What you see on the camera is a character, so I sometimes don’t feel it’s not actually who I am as a person off-camera. But at the end of the day, TV is for entertainment, and I think I come across as very entertaining and that’s what people want to see.”

Entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks (pictured left), who we told you about in February, will indeed join the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for season three — and she’s pregnant. But a more famous “housewife” will get some camera time too. Model Cynthia Bailey, who has appeared on the cover and pages of Essence, has also been confirmed as a new face on the hit Bravo show. Cynthia is the ex-wife of actor Leon, so I’m hoping his fine ass will make an appearance on the show at least once. And supposedly, one of the original “Real Housewives of Atlanta” will make a mid-season exit. Scandal! [The Young, Black & Fabulous]
