Everything in this life has a cost. I’ve found that the freest of the free tends to be the most costly. We live in a world that teaches us to aspire towards a one-dimensional ideal of success. A big house, a foreign car, designer clothes, expensive jewelry, and lavish vacations is what its all about. More so than not, celebrities have all of these things, and we think they are living the good life. Looking beyond the glitz & glam, one has to ask, “but are they really?” Privacy, protection from embarrassment, safety, the ability to go pick up a roll of tissue from Target, are all things that one forgoes when they make the transition to being a celebrity. On the surface these things may seem trivial. Hell, many of you, especially those of you who are struggling to make ends meet may be thinking, “that’s not that bad of a trade off.” I challenge you to think again. Privacy is like insurance; you never need it, until you need. Just ask Phaedra Parks. I’m sure she can tell you all about it.
Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta just started, and I am over it and exhausted with the bullsh!t already. The careless blend of real life issues and desperate attempts to stay relevant enough to earn a living has just run its course on my DVR. To be honest, I don’t find the dissolution of Phaedra’s marriage or family entertaining, Quite frankly the sh!t is rather sad and depressing. Then, the moment you stop watching Phaedra’s sad ass storyline, we have to watch Kenya and her madness. No tea no shade, they need to recast the whole damn show, or take the sh!t off the air in its entirety. Perhaps I’m so over all of this because I know many of the ladies personally, and get’s to live some of this foolishness along side them. I don’t know…
Since I’m talking about it, and the world is talking about it, I might as well TALK ABOUT IT. What would Jesus do? That is the question I wanted to ask Phaedra as Apollo moved through his sentencing process seemingly alone. From the outside looking in, Phaedra being his wife and all, things looked a little bad on her behalf. From the inside looking out, I can totally see where Phaedra is coming from. Going back to that privacy thing that I was talking about earlier, why does what I think even matter? Why the hell is it that I along with millions of other even have an opinion on someone else’s marriage & family? Why is it that Phaedra has to be subjected to our thoughts and opinions? I can guarantee you that Phaedra would be willing to trade in a couple handbags, a few pairs of shoes, and some of those bedrooms for some privacy. Continue reading
No tea no shade, I’m not going to say that I am shocked, I will say that I did not see this coming so soon. I honestly have mixed emotions about Phaedra Parks divorcing Apollo. It is always hard when a family unit has to transition. For those of us who are products of divorce, we can tell you that it takes years for the dust to finally settle and for all parties involved to find a comfortable state of being in this world. Not that it was any of our business, but I was curious to know if Phaedra planned to wait for Apollo? I mean, 8 years is a long damn time. I guess Phaedra figured, “ain’t no need in both of us being in prison”.
Phaedra appeared on ‘The Elen Show’ and says she had no idea of Apollo’s criminal wrong doings. Now… Phaedra is my girl. But uhmmmmm… It’s just hard for me to believe that two people are living in the same house, and one person is totally clueless as to how the hell the other person earning a living. It is my opinion that if anything, Phaedra “chose” not to know, leaving herself available to a plausible deniability defense.
I really didn’t [have any idea]… I work. I just got my fifth college degree. I am pretty much an over achiever. I have two very small children.
I just stopped breast feeding three months ago… and so I really didn’t have any idea that any of this was going on until he called and said, ‘Hey, Ive been arrested and I’m having this problem but it’s not true’… and that obviously wasn’t the case. ~Phaedra
Watch the interview, and see what else Phaedra had to say. Continue reading
So by now, I’m sure you guys have heard all the hoopla and the drama about Apollo Nida not turning himself in to prison they way he was supposed to yesterday. Well y’all can put all the chatter to rest. A day late, Apollo has turned himself in. Now I honestly try my hardest to avoid blogging about Apollo and Phaedra as it relates their family virtually falling apart. This 8 year prison stint is just a hard thing to deal with all the way around for all parties involved. However, some things are unavoidable.
Rumor has it that Apollo showed up at he and Phaedra’s home, dashed through the house like a crazy person, was confiscating belongings, and yelling so loud that the police was called. Was this the act of an emotionally unstable man or a man that was making one last attempt to make sure his family was alright? Well let’s see. In total honesty, if Phaedra didn’t want to film yesterday, she could have simply made a call and not filmed. Additionally, its feeling all to coincidental that the cameras happened to be at your house when Apollo showed up and acting crazy. My personal take on the entire situation is both Phaedra and Apollo realized that they are in a shitty situation, and they might as well capitalize off of it. Every season of RHOA is unofficially all about one of the women. Well, welcome to Phaedra’s season. We sure as well will be tuning in to catch all the tea and Phaedra’s last month’s before Apollo went to prison, and her life post Apollo. Should be interesting. Once you throw in Kenya and the newbies, this season is sure to be a smash.
8 years will come and go, not to mention, there is cable in prison. Apollo will be able to somewhat partake in what is going on in the free world. I’m sure we’ll probably get some “from prison” interviews from him, if the warden permits. All in all, while we are highly intrigued and entertained by the goings ons of Phaedra & Appollo, let’s remember that our entertainment is simultaneously someone’s pain. Enjoy the gossip and the tea, but on your off time, send up a little prayer for a family in transition.
Apollo created 1 final Instavideo before he checked into the pen. Check it out below. Continue reading
Alright y’all. I have not watched parts 2 or 3 of the reunion because quite frankly I am over these hoes. However, everyone is talking about this epic read that Phaedra gave Kenya last night. For those who did not see it, and for those who need to see it again, here it is. Get your life! Quiet as its kept, she gave that bish the business… More to come when I eventually watch it…
I was on vacation when all hell broke loose at the taping of The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 6 reunion taping. By now, I’m sure every one knows that Porsha knocked the sh!t out of Kenya. Quiet as its kept, Phaedra’s a$$ should have jumped up off the couch and hit the b!sh too, but that another story. Anyway, what some of you may not know is that Porsha was immediately asked to leave the premises. Porsha hit Kenya within the first hour of taping. That being said, don’t expect to see much of Porsha on the reunion show.
Fast forward to today, after the dust has settle, those close to the situation are saying Porsha may have f&cked herself. BRAVO does not play that. The contracts for each of the housewives is written pretty tightly and spells out to the letter what they can and cannot do. BRAVO has had no hesitation in the past on acting on breaches of contract. Remember Adrienne Maloof from Beverly Hills? Well her contract stated she had to do the reunion show. Mama chose not to show up, and they fired her a$$. With that, the housewives contracts stipulate in some fashion that they are not to get violent with one another, not allowed to take out restraining orders against one another or bring forth any other legal action that will hinder production, etc. I’m sure we can all agree that diving on a b!tch constitutes getting violent.
Porsha’s job is in jeopardy, however many people close to the situation feel like her actions were very much justified. Kenya has been antagonizing this woman for the last two years and taking unwarranted jabs at her whenever she got the opportunity. To top things off, Kenya brought a wack a$$ crown and staff (bedazzled stick) to the taping of the reunion and was waving it around in Porsha’s face. I would have beat that b!tches ass too.
The entire cast is really feeling for Porsha right now and not featuring Kenya at all. So much so, that they are wiling to work as a collective to try and protect Porsha’s peach and get rid of Kenya’s a$$. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Its been a while since I’ve had to get Phaedra’s a$$ together, but constitution fish is trying to pull it. Phaedra knows damn well Xenadrine is not the reason her a$$ is losing weight and looking model thin. It’s the stress of Apollo’s legal troubles and those sleepless nights that’s got phaedra looking Sex In The City thin. Ohh and her consistent use of The Donkey Booty DVD which is now on sale on Amazon… Chile don’t y’all let Phaedra fool y’all a$$ OKAY! Don’t y’all run out there and spend up all your income tax money money on some pills thinking you gone look fine like Phaedra, and two months from now you’re still fat like Fanny….
