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.”
Well now that she has her new spinoff, Rich People Problems, to promote and an upcoming book, Secrets Of A Southern Belle, Phaedra is out of hiding and dishing on RHOA drama, her behavior last season, and a certain someone's upcoming wedding!
Phaedra shares that of course some of her colleagues reached out to her post-birth. "Kandi [Burruss] and Todd came to the hospital," Phaedra tells TooFab. "Cynthia [Bailey]has talked to me several times since giving birth. And Porsha [Stewart] sent a wonderful gift."
Phaedra Parks is about as refined as any Bravo housewife can be, but its her Southern one-liners, fancy hat collection, and "bless her heart" way of insulting someone with a compliment that make her a true belle. As any Southerner knows, there are certainly rules, tips, and tricks of the trade that make manners, mama, and magnolias a way of life. Lucky for y'all, Phaedra wants to share those secrets with her fans.
Forget the donkey booty, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is now focused on all things etiquette, and she is ready to teach anyone who will listen the importance of tradition, place settings, and the perfectly made-up face. Smells like another Housewives book, doesn't it?
