Former (or is it current?) entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks appears on the March cover of Upscale Magazine alongside two other ladies of reality TV: Tameka Raymond (Atlanta Exes) and LaTavia Robertson (R&B Divas Atlanta).
In a quote about her experiences appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra explains that though the show may have ahem… scripted moments, the stars certainly aren't treated like actors!
“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays," Phaedra says of one of the glaring pitfalls of being on reality TV. "We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so they're getting talent for a nominal fee. They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”

O-U-C-H! It sounds like Phaedra, who was supposed to have a spinoff airing on Bravo in the spring (but it's up in the air, reportedly), has a bone to pick with the powers that be in the reality TV biz. Perhaps Ms. Parks, attorney at law can get involved in lobbying to change that. If she's not too busy with Apollo's fraud situation!
Tonight a new episode of RHOA airs and NeNe Leakes vs. Kenya Moore continues with an epic blowout during an athletic field day event that divides all the ladies into teams. Making an unwelcome appearance on Team Twirl is Marlo Hampton, who if you recall, used to play for Team Very Rich Bitch!
Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the episode so make sure to join us on twitter!
