Phaedra’s real life has played out front and center via reality TV – from the birth of both of her sons, to her husband Apollo Nida going to prison, to a career change to mortuary science. Through it all Phaedra has remained stalwart and largely composed, but open-ish about the circumstances in her life – something she insists is intentional.
Phaedra curiously doesn’t mention her fractured marriage, although she does mention how important it is to think before you act and refrain from doing something you might regret while on TV!
Phaedra feels she is a living example of how “test builds testimony” – and one thing RHOA has taught her is the weight words carry. “I try not to say things that I can’t come back from. I’m always very careful, and just because you’re thinking something doesn’t mean that you should say it. But there’ve been a lot of times where I wanted to rip somebody’s wig off.”
Wasn’t it Cynthia Bailey who was just preaching from the rooftops of the Bailey Agency about how nobody should ever get physical with someone else? Oh, wait, I guess she’s not including herself! According to reports Cynthia got physical with Porsha Williams over the weekend!
During a Real Housewives Of Atlanta filming which happened on a boat, things got out of control, and ended with Cynthia kicking Porsha in the stomach!
Demetria shared on Instagram, “It’s my birthday!!!!thank u mariaharperdesigns for my beautiful dress! Turn up!” Among the celebs who turned out to celebrate with Demetria – her former (?) RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey, returning RHOA star Marlo Hampton, along with Mimi Faust, Atlanta Exes star Christina Johnson (and her beau Willie Wallace), and more!
Did Cynthia finally hire a stylist? This is the best she’s looked in a long time.
On a break from filming her ABC game-show, NeNe will appear as a guest host on Fashion Police, and just announced she’ll also be appearing on BET’s parody show ‘Real Husbands Of Hollywood.’ NeNe shared a clip from the show in which she takes NeNeism UP several notches!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is going to be a whole new ballgame next season. There are a so many new faces and a lot of recycled faces coming on board for this sure-to-be-drama-filled season that we can barely keep track of the guest list anymore! Most of them turned out Monday night for the kick off of Kenya Moore’s latest business venture – a hair care line, which was filmed for the show, of course.
Among those in attendance: Kenya Moore (with a new beau??!), Marlo Hampton, Sheree Whitfield, newbieAmiyah Scott, newbie Kim Fields, returning cast Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks, and Kandi Burruss, showing off her adorable baby bump. Also returning – at least for a hello – is Claudia Jordan! She was rumored to have been dumped for the new season, but she was in attendance for filming and it wasn’t just as Kenya’s guest (if you’ll remember, she opened up attendance to fans on Instagram, too), as Claudia claims she was mic’ed. “They told me to go in and say hello and I was mic’d. It was waAAAAAY too many people in the scene.” She added that “it was HOT as hell in there! We left early.”
Kim Zolciak went from Real Housewife to actual real-life Housewife and she also went from Real Housewives Of Atlanta star to having her own spinoff as a mom of six, married to NFL player Kroy Biermann.
Don’t Be Tardy is returning for its fourth season and Wigs N Cigs is dishing all about how her life (and her kids’ lives) have changed since reality TV, what fame really means, and her rules for marriage in the public eye, and why she refuses to let internet haters affect her.
“I always wanted to be famous – my whole life,” admits Kim. “You can look at the journal I wrote at aged twelve where I said I can’t wait to have my own show by the time I’m 30. I was 29 when I started on Housewives.” But is it all that she envisioned? On fame, Kim says, “A lot of people want it but they don’t realize what comes with it. Your whole life is scrutinized.”
Perennially struggling business owner Peter Thomas has been hit with yet another eviction notice for non-payment. After moving Bar One in the wake of financial issues and delaying the reopening indefinitely, Peter and his business partner/wife Cynthia Bailey are already behind on rent!
Court documents seeking to evict Peter and Cynthia’s Bar One demonstrate that the Real Housewives Of Atlanta couple owed $1869 for back rent and fines on the Auburn Avenue location. Bar One Atlanta moved locations last year and has been promising a reopening since January 2015 – but in fact the bar has never actually opened its doors! Instead Cynthia and Peter have just been renting the space while ostensibly renovating and apparently they’re running out of money.
