Grand Theft Auto: Bankhead

Real Housewives of Atlanta

Phaedra & Apollo

OMG! How low must we go? Phaedra, If this is for real, you have reached rock bottom.

Phaedra Parks, entertainment attorney, is one the new cast mates on the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.  Phaedra has represented such notables as Jermaine Dupri and Bobby Brown. Parks has been around the entertainment circuit on both sides.  She is the Executive Producer o the Tiny and Toya show and has appeared on several episodes.  You might remember her as the woman who took Toya to New York  to shop her book deal. Her love life includes some low to medium heavy weights in the entertainment biz.  Parks dated Mannie Fresh, you  know him from Cash Money Records; rapper Too Short (no explanation needed); and former NFL baller Chuck Smith.

Here’s the kicker.  Phaedra recently exchanged I do’s with ex con boyfriend Apollo Nida who spent 6 years body building in one of Georgia’s  fine correctional facilities (hope he didn’t drop the soap while he was in the shower).  This brutha and 5 of his closest friends operated a criminal enterprise receiving stolen vehicles in and around Hot-Lanta.  He was still on parole for those crimes when he went on his honeymoon.

An ex con?  Come on, Phaedra. Your reputation as an attorney precedes you.  You are well respected among your colleagues and peers, but this borders on insanity and sounds like a recipe for disaster.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be hot this season.  Look out NeNe, you have just been upstaged!

Well, damn he does clean up well doesn’t he?


Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems

Real Housewives of Atlanta

I don’t know what they want from me

It’s like the mo’ money we come across

The mo’ problems we see

Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems-Notorious B.I.G.

Ne Ne Leakes

Problems, problems, problems, WTF is going on?  Let’s see, where should we begin?  Linnethia Monique Johnson, better known as NeNe Leakes, was living an ordinary life in Georgia with her wealthy husband, in a very, very, very expensive home.  She lands a role on a TV reality show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and all hell breaks loose.

Listen up girl, you start out as a stripper, or “exotic dancer” as you call it, in Macon, Georgia. Then you move to the ATL, get evicted from one residence, marry a real estate investor, have 2 sons, one from a previous relationship, get hired on the Real Housewives, your son gets arrested twice, now your husband wants a divorce and wants you to pay him alimony.

Wow! Where do you go from here?  Would you have all these issues if you weren’t in the public eye so much? Maybe you would, we just wouldn’t know about it.  All the things that are happn to you happen to people every day, but being in the public eye has it price, as you now know.

Everything you and your family do, everywhere you go, someone is watching, just waitn to put you on front street.  What is a serious family issue to you is pure entertainment for me.  Keep it comin, girl, keep it comin.
