Phaedra Parks, Tameka Raymond and LaTavia Roberson cover the March 2014 issue of Upscale magazine.
The trio of well known ladies may seem like they have nothing in common, but in fact they all share dreams of reality show stardom! The vixens showed up and showed out in a glamourous ‘Reality Check’ photo shoot done by Atlanta’s own Drexina Nelson.
StraightFromTheA exclusively revealed to you last year that Tameka Raymond would be joining the cast of the Atlanta spin-off of ‘Hollywood Exes’ (click HERE if you missed that) and now that casting is complete, Raymond and the ‘Atlanta Exes’ crew have been taping for weeks now.
LaTavia Roberson, one of the original members of Destiny’s Child, will be bringing a bit of ‘baby mama drama’ to television as she joins the cast of ‘R&B Divas: Atlanta’ this season. Roberson gave birth to a daughter last August who’s father just so happens to be Kandi Burruss right hand man.
And we all know the drama that has surrounded Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida recently (click HERE if you missed that)
In their Upscale Magazine feature article, the ladies all speak on their reality show ambitions. Photos + excerpts under the cut…
“I’d previously received several offers to do a variety of different shows, but I’m all about timing.No matter what people have reasoned were the best things for me, I know myself better than anybody. I know my family and I know my needs. The timing wasn’t right. Now, it’s better. People have begun to focus more on me as an individual, a mother, a business woman and I think that this new exercise of introduction to the world is meant to happen right now.”
As for being ‘afraid’ of what the public may say about her… Tameka says she’s ‘NEVA SKERRED’!
“Let’s be clear, there’s not a lot that I’m actually “scared” of—that’s the Oakland in me.
We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays. We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so their getting talent for a nominal fee.
They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.
There is nothing I can say about how people are going to perceive me. I have to stay true to myself. I know who I am, I love who I am.
As far as the reality [television] part goes, I’m being myself; I really can’t change that… I’m not going to try to change that.
