Phaedra Parks and the Real Housewives of Atlanta - This is my confession

I'm going to talk about something here today that I've never fully admitted to before.

For years, I tried to ignore the Real Housewives of Atlanta.  As a Black woman, I felt it was not in the best interest of my race to engage in discussing a show that doesn't always depict black women at their best.

What joy can be gained from watching on-camera fights, break ups, good news, more often bad news and spilling of the tea in front of a national audience?

But, hey - I'm human.

I confess that I have finally given in to my "human side" or shall I say "nosey nature" and watched the entire four-part reunion.  I mean, after all, white women expose themselves on a number of reality series - right?

Question of the day - Is this scripted??  Phaedra Parks is a successful professional woman.  An attorney for crying out loud.  Would she risk her entire career for a short-term "cash cow?"

I don't know the answer, but I do know one thing - whether people admit it or not, it seems a whole lot of folks are watching to find out.

p.s. - anybody else miss Nene?
