Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is winding down to a close, but that infamous “bus fight” between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak is still being discussed amongst the masses.
During the fight, NeNe called Kim’s assistant Sweetie a “slave,” and although NeNe admits that she felt bad about the fight, her harsh words have prompted participants and viewers alike to take a deep look at race relations on the show.
In the words of Pierre Berton, “Racism is a refuge for the ignorant. It seeks to divide and to destroy. It is the enemy of freedom, and deserves to be met head-on and stamped out.”
Kim has commonly been referred to as the “token white chick” of Atlanta, but does that give NeNe, a known bully to select Kim as the target of whatever deep seated issues she has?
Attorney Phaedra Parks, who has also been the target of a few racially based insults (*cough* Chelsea Lately Show) addressed these deep issues in a recent blog and she brought out some really interesting points.
Check out what Phaedra had to say about that crazy episode and how she feels about Kim being called a racist. Oh.. and I also found out a lil behind the scenes tea on Kim and Sweetie… Continue Reading…
I was the first to bring you the news back in February that Attorney Phaedra Parks was joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta and she is fast becoming a fan favorite on the popular show.
Newly wedded to her adorable hubby Apollo and also a hot new mom to little Ayden, Phaedra reveals a side of herself on the show that soon became the hot topic of many late night tv shows…

Her appearance on the show has been criticized and dissected by those who know her, and I, personally, came up with one theory…. although it’s hilarious, it’s all an act!
Phaedra confirms my theory in a recent interview.
Check out what she has to say about all that RHOA criticism and why she chose to do the show… Continue Reading…
Phaedra Parks and her hubby Apollo hit up Ted Turner’s Captain Planet Anniversary celebration last week where they posed for the lovely picture above.
The cute couple was featured on Bravo’s What Happens Now last night, where Phaedra & Apollo finally got to explain herself and the way she’s perceived on the show.
A few things they touched on included those pickle pictures, the due date discrepancy, how they met on the highway and more.

I missed Chelsea Handler’s rant the other day about The Real Housewives of Atlanta and just now caught in online.
On the last episode of RHOA, Attorney Phaedra Parks is preparing to give birth and has a friend giving her advice and assisting her through about the process.
Most first time mothers need a bit of guidance in the beginning and Phaedra adds a little humor to the situation by pretending to know absolutely nothing.
Handler, who is known to be a bit risque, chose to roast Parks about the situation and used her best “Black Girl” neck rolling, finger snapping attitude to make her point.
?Hey, moron!,? says Chelsea. ?You?re not giving birth to a Cabbage Patch kid!?
Chelsea also notes that Phaedra is an attorney who is married to an ex-con and proclaims, ?Sounds to me like she?s living the African American dream!?

The highly anticipated Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered last night (Oct 4th) and the “housewives” threw two separated events to celebrate the occasion.
Kandi Burruss, along with new “housewives” Cynthia Bailey & Phaedra Parks participated in the festivities over at Justin’s while Kim Zolciak hosted her own bash at Twist.
