It’s an interview only Phaedra Parks could give. I mean, you saw her ballet themed baby shower and her pickle inspired photo shoot, right? In a sit-down with PaperMag.com, the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star discusses everything from funerals to being dressed by servants in Ghana. I swear, the things that come out of this woman’s mouth are something else, but because it’s Phaedra, it’s totally hilarious. She dishes on wardrobe changes during a funeral (not hers, the corpses!) and the Georgia Supreme Court attending her wedding to Apollo Nida, because, you know, she’s such Atlanta society. Loves it! It’s a really long interview, so I’ve posted the highlights below, but I encourage you to read the entire thing here. It’s worth your time! Oh, Phaedra!

Right after the rumors started spreading like wildfire that she was hired to replace Sheree Whitfield, Keisha immediately put the flames out via Twitter. Keisha posted, “I am NOT joining the cast of RHOA this season… Next season or any season. I honestly don’t know where this rumor is coming from!! ”
Well, we know where the rumor is coming from and Straight From the A is adamant that Keisha is indeed filming with the cast. They tried to reach out to her via Twitter, asking why she’s been seen shooting with the other Housewives, but Keisha didn’t address it.
I guess time will tell what the real deal is. I’m still crossing my fingers for it to be true.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK KEISHA IS JOINING, BUT DENYING UNTIL IT’S OFFICIAL?
Bravo is really stepping up its game in regard to the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Straight From the A is confirming that the girl we all loved seeing grow up under the watchful eye of Cliff and Claire Huxtable is joining the cast. That’s right! Rudy HuxtableKeisha Knight Pulliam is going to be hanging with the Neenster and Krazy Kim! I have no words…it’s just so exciting! Granted, she’s not a housewife, but seriously, when has that ever been criteria to be on a housewives’ show?
Of course, while Keisha is known around the globe as lovable Rudy, she’s quite the accomplished business woman and philanthropist. She graduated from Spellman College in Atlanta and also founded Kamp Kizzy which is a summer day camp for tween and teen girls to boost their self-esteem. One may question if she’ll be tarnishing her impeccable reputation by joining a reality show (especially THIS reality show!), but I beg to differ. The stunning Keisha will do nothing but class up this franchise…mark my words!
One of the suits at Beanstalk says they signed Nene because she is more famous than most other reality stars: “NeNe’s rise to fame has eclipsed that of any other reality television star today, providing a real opportunity to extend her brand.” while another claims her clothes will “leverage NeNe’s position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories, designed to empower women to walk into a room and ‘own it’ — like NeNe herself.”
Well, there’s really only one Nene Leakes. And I think you’re going to need more than some pants with her name on the label to recreate her appeal. But we sure can try!
TELL US: WILL YOU BUY NENE’S FASHION LINE? IS THERE ANY HOPE OF A NE BY NENE VS. SHE BY SHEREE WALK OFF?
As you know, Phaedra, reality starlet, quotable wordsmith, lover of pickles, and attorney extraordinaire, did not take kindly to Vibe.com financially backing Angela Stanton’s tome of slander “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil,” and she recently filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the site’s parent company. Now it appears that her mother, Pastor Regina Bell, is following suit…literally!
This weekend gossip around the ATL was thatKim Zolciak was spotted moving Big Poppa’s furniture out of the much gossiped about “dream home” she had been renting. It would appear that landlady Kendra Davis has come through with her plan to serve the Biermann’s with an eviction notice of some sort. Or the Biermanns decided they no longer wanted to be “squatters” and moved out!
Here’s the backstory: Kim and husband Kroy Biermann were renting the home – fully decorated by Kendra – with the intent to buy. She announced on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion that she was “closing” on the house very soon. Apparently Kendra and Kim had a falling out over Kim planning to get married on the property – and construct large venues in the backyard – without consulting Kendra. Then Kim uninvited Kendra to the wedding.
