Forget Kenya Moore's fan flipping antics, Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPhaedra Parks practically has sweet tea oozing through her veins, as evidenced from her new book Secrets of the Southern Belle: How to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment. In an interview with Cupid's Pulse, Phaedra opens up on her life both on and off RHOA.
Of being an entertainment lawyer and a Bravolebrity, Phaedra says, “Now, I can say I’ve pretty much done everything when it comes to TV – from the licensing deals to being the on-air talent."
As evidenced by this week's episode, Phaedra is also great at dressing the part of her other new venture…funeral director. She shares, “Unfortunately, I got into this industry because I had a lot of great friends who passed. People would ask me to help with the funeral arrangements, and I actually became very intrigued by every aspect of the mortuary process – from picking out the makeup and dressing the body to the funeral service. I always paid a lot of attention to the preparation and all of the details.”
Oh Bethenny Frankel, whatever are we going to do with you? After deciding Jason Hoppy wasn't the husband she wanted or needed, the former reality star turned talk show host says she's nowhere near ready to date again, although that conflicts with rumors that she's been seeing Warren Lichtenstein. I won't mention that just last month she let it slip that she's seeing someone. Oops! I guess I just did!
Bethenny admits that she has no desire to be part of a couple again. She blames her attitude towards a relationship on the fact that going through this divorce is much harder than she'd ever anticipated. She also manages to throw shade at her soon-to-be-ex-husband. It's like Groundhog's Day around here, isn't it?
There is crazy and then there is Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKenya Moore. She may be Gone with the Wind fabulous, but I think that wind may have also blown away some of her sanity with it! However, it only makes her all the more entertaining when addressing last week's episode in regards to NeNe Leakes and Porsha Stewart.
She begins her Bravo blogin a way that only Krayoncecould, and it's amazing–her delusions, her life, and her take on last week's premiere, apparently! Kenya starts, "Did you miss me? That’s a rhetorical question of course. Of course you did! LOL! Have you missed my twirls, my curls, and my Gone with the Wind fabulousness? I’ve had the time of my life over the past year. My life has changed in such a positive way, it’s been a dream. My love life has drastically changed and I am so close to having everything in life I’ve always wanted."
Well, what do you know? Promises were kept on last night's Love & Hip Hop…although said promises caused some major blow-ups. Peter Gunz assured Amina Buddafly that he'd tell Tara Wallace about their relationship, and he does. Nya wants to keep her word to help out Erica Mena. Of course, that will certainly end well–everything with Erica always does!
After thwarting Amina's plans to tell Tara about her wedding to Peter, ol' Petey boy calls up Rich Dollaz for advice. They are having a meeting of the creeps, but just because Peter is a creep doesn't mean he's a bad person. He's just indecisive as to who he wants to have sex with on a regular basis. Speaking of creeps, Joe Budden is meeting with Nya at the strip club. They've developed a true friendship as only a stripper and hookah smoking patron can be. Professor Budden tries to dissuade Nya from collaborating with Erica Mena, but I am totally distracted by the dancer in the background whose arse is literally about to eat some gentleman's face. Thanks for the nightmares, VH1. Thanks a lot.
Peter stays true to his word for once and keeps his "tomorrow" promise to tell Tara about Amina. He invites her to come by the studio and halfway tells her that he's been diddling his artist for a little while. When she gets upset about the fact that he's cheating (yet again), he says she may need to shoulder some of the responsibility since the pair hasn't been getting along. Is he serious? She's slapping him every which way to Sunday before throwing his guitar and storming out of the studio. Tara feels so stupid for thinking that Peter had changed his cheating ways…as she should!
No matter how much she promises the pair will be best friends (while publicly stating her regret at divorcing Robert Kardashian), Kris always has a selfish ulterior motive. I'm still going to think Kris a self-absorbed pimp momager and emasculating wife regardless how many awards she bestows upon Bruce.
I'm not going to lie. Sometimes (no, all the time) the amount of over-sharing people do on the Internet makes me slightly uncomfortable. I have certainly been guilty of it, but I try to keep updates about my appointments at the lady doctor, weird rashes, and sexy times (bwhahaha! Like I have them) out of my Twitter and Facebook feeds.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin does not seem to follow this philosophy, and that's okay. It just kind of creeps me out a bit. She and husband Doug want to expand their family of four, and I know about it thanks to Twitter.
Got an extra 80 grand burning a hole in your pocket and not sure what to buy with it? Do you have a special someone in your life who enjoys camo and water fowl and you plan on spending a literal fortune on them this holiday season? If so, the gang from Duck Dynasty has the perfect gift for you!
Back before they were international celebrities, best-selling authors, and chart-topping recording artists (more on that in a bit), Phil Robertson built an empire making duck calls. Now A&E is auctioning off the one millionth call produced in 2013 with the proceeds going to a very worthy cause.
On Friday morning, Brandi tweeted, "I really wish a certain pare shapes bugged eyed "COCK" tail waitress would stop riding my coat tails." Yes, pare shapes. I wonder to whom Brandi could be referring? While Scheana seems to be the obvious target for Brandi's twitterhate, she's hardly using Brandi's celebrity to bolster her own–she doesn't need to. She has her tooth surgery story to garner attention. No, I'm serious.
