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?
The Manzo family is currently filming their spinoff Manzo'd With Children, so we're willing to be the cameras caught every minute of the big proposal.
Lauren reportedly got engaged back in May of 2012. After we posted the exclusive story, she first confirmed it (even showing off an engagement ring) and then retracted it and said it was completely untrue. It was believed that Bravo asked her to keep it quiet since the proposal was reportedly filmed for an episode of RHONJ, but that never saw the light of day.
But, if you're an Asa lover, I have a very special interview to share with you. If you're not an Asa lover, I have a very special interview to share with you too.
Speaking to metro.us, Asa said her nutsoDiamond Water experience has been amazing, though her naysayer Shahs of Sunset co-stars haven't been 100% supportive of her vision. "No, there was definitely some hater-ation, and some naysayers talking shit," she said. "I’m a survivor and everything I have, I have worked hard for. Diamond Water is my dream, nobody else has to believe in it except for me, so I don’t care what other people say."
This one doesn't specificlly say reality TV, but we are assured it's a couple who do have a reality show. I think this one is easy. Can't wait for the reveal! Take a look and give us your best guess!
"This award-winning performer’s husband has been cheating on her since the beginning of their marriage. In fact, he is cheating on her right now with another female celebrity. The identity of the mistress would probably surprise you.
Wife knows all about the affair, but is reluctant to file for divorce. That’s because this marriage keeps her in the spotlight… which is the thing she craves more than honesty or fidelity!
So she will do anything to give the appearance that things are fine, including arranging for daily affectionate “spontanteous” photo ops with the Husband to try to convince you that all is well. She calls her publicist first thing every morning to provide an itinerary of where she will be for the day. Her publicist then calls the paparazzi to ensure that they are there to “secretly” capture how devoted they are to each other and their family. Yes, it’s all done for the cameras."
TELL US – WHO DO YOU THINK THE CHEATER IS? AND WHO IS HE CHEATING WITH?
To kick things off, Mackenzie buys a pair of chaps for Gannon. Ha! Why not? Dressing the baby like an adult cowboy makes perfect sense when Mackenzie doesn't have a job, Josh doesn't have a job, and Gannon, despite winning the family IQ race, is too young to have a job.
An excited Mackenzie calls Josh to gush about her superfluous purchase. He accepts the call – listens – but rushes off the phone without ever expressing a single emotion. Phone calls are hard, y'all. Mackenzie's friend points out that Josh is barely alive, adding, "He needs to get a pulse in touch with his feelings." Mackenzie says she totally heard excitement in Josh's voice.
Stassi Schroeder is up to her same antics of systematically destroying everyone around her. ThankfullyVanderpump Rules favorite sociopath hasn't changed. Where are the proper authorities?
Last night Stassi cemented that Scheana Marie, briefly her friend, was once again her enemy. Stassi believes that Scheana is on an unrelenting quest to become her, to like BE Stassi. Which would mean Scheana also wants to be WITH Jax Taylor.
Speaking of Jax, I'd like to take an informal poll on how high we think his IQ is: 3? 8? Maybe 15 on a generous day? Despite being humiliated and constantly berated by Stassi he desperately wants her back. So desperately that he got a secret tattoo to prove his love. She maintains he isn't doing anything to earn her trust back except give her truly exceptional sex with lots of acrobatics and WWF maneuvers. #gag
Over at SUR things are still topsy-turvy. Strangely it's not decimating business so Lisa Vanderpump decides to install a new bar in the garden.

Someone different… someone outside the incestuous cess pool. Someone like Katie Maloney's boyfriend Tom. Enter Tom 2.
