Attorney Phaedra Parks
of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
was featured on WAGA-TV’s Wednesday’s Child segment with Amanda Davis yesterday evening (January 11, 2011).
America’s favorite southern belle took a moment out of her busy schedule to sit down with 17-year-old Anasterasia, a young lady in foster care, who has aspirations of one day becoming a lawyer.
Parks answered Anasterasia’s questions about her career choice and discussed her expectations. She also vowed to help Anasterasia persue her dreams by taking her to visit her Alma Mater, The University of Georgia School of Law.

First came the threats… and then the “OFFICIAL STATEMENT” follows. Perfect timing!

Hudson’s explanation contradicts what she told “DatelineNBC” earlier this week, when she said she turned it down because she “would have had to be the big girl again.”

I’ve told y’all time and time again I have absolutely nothing against Marlo Hampton

, so I don’t know why you insist on thinking otherwise.
Again, the family of Marlo’s slashing victim reached out to me and I posted a blog. That’s it. Nothing new over here.
