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!
