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.”
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."
Things begin with Miss WHO-S-A pageant waving as she leaves the courthouse after her eviction hearing. There's like 4 bored looking photographers standing around checking their watches as Kenya breezes out clutching her chest gasping, 'For meeeee?! Lil' ol' meeee?! Oh being famous… it's such a responsibility.' One of the photographers looks around and asks, 'I thought NeNe Leakes was gonna be here?' Jussst kidding, but you know Kenya called those paps herself and now she's trying to pretend she's A-list. Girl, that ship done sailed! She claims she won her eviction case.
Later she goes for drinks with NeNe to discuss their argument atCynthia Bailey's launch. Krayonce turns on those pageant tears to sniffle about how she has been displaced from her home and no one reached out like she's some sort of suburban refugee. NeNe shoots her a girl please look and reminds her that she's supposed to be a multi-millionaire producer, director, booty boosting guru, man-eating queen, so how can she be homeless? Kenya is like yeah, all that's true but I still need friends and none of you were there for me.
Kenya Moore is a special kind of reality star who will stop at nothing to twirl all over the situation and make it all about her. NOT! What I mean is just like most reality stars Kenya is attempting to carve out a storyline and some relevance. Gotta extend that 15 minutes, right?!
The new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is bound to be dramaful, and it opened with a bang when egomaniacal delusionistasKenya and NeNe Leakes got into it. NeNe has been gloating all up and down twitter that she remained composed and kept her cool when Kenya grabbed her ear. And in rebuttal Kenya wants everyone to know she is "not afraid of the big bad wolf"!
“It’s like, look, if we’re going to be friends we have to deal with each other on an honest level,” Kenya explained to The Wrap. “This is what bothers me. I’m going to be vocal about it. My desire is that we move past it and we don’t have to deal with that issue again."
Andy Cohen better watch out because Bethenny's talk show is starting to feel like a daytime version of Watch What Happens Live! The Real Housewives have been a staple on Bethenny's special guest list lately and shows no sign of slowing down.
Kandi and Kenya have been promoting the show together lately, so Bethenny asked if they were paired together for a reason. Kandi shared, "we can be friendly together and Kenya can't be friendly with everyone on our show, so they put her with me."
Bethenny tells Kenya that she's polarizing (and that she can relate), "You're polarizing: people love you or they hate you, not unlike myself". Kenya explains, "I am extremely emotional, I'm reactionary and I'm just real. so I have natural reactions. If someone sets me off I can be a firecracker but only when I'm lit."
You know, I gotta hand it to NeNe Leakes she has learned from her mistakes and grown from them. Case in point, last season she gave Kenya Moore a chance but she has since seen the error of her ways and is henceforth intolerant of such "foolishness"! You and me both, Ms. Leakes!
The reality TV viewer numbers for Sunday and Monday are in – and the Real Housewives of Atlanta are back with a bang! The season six premiere pulled in 3.108 million viewers. No doubt RHOA will remain Bravo's number one show.
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I so forgot how deliciously shade-full and snarky these ladies are. Of course there was also Krayonce… who is just as kraysane as always!
Everyone has had a lot going on since last season. NeNe Leakes re-married Gregg, as we know, and is now like Veruca Salt in a chocolate factory, opening all her wedding presents. Once such wedding present is a $400 Hermes plate from Teresa Giudice. Teresa needs to ask for that plate back. #NotARichBitch
NeNe is ripping through the wrapping paper going 'For meeeeeee….?!' when Gregg reminds her it's actually "for we". Apparently not – it's NeNe's world and we're all just living in it. <Snaps>
