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?
