…Shamekia Jackson for the hilarious Phaedra Parks fictional piece below. I can’t believe this website/station is affiliated with NBC. In fact, I just tweeted NBC to double-check. Now, I get the occasional chickenhead in here squawking from time to time about my bias, or my typos, or my grammar, all in the name of journalistic integrity. What they fail to understand is that journalistic integrity applies to journalists. I’m just some chick on a couch yammering on about my opinions of really bad television shows with some trial news and pop culture news sprinkled in. I am certainly not paid by a major media outlet to present an accurate account of what is going on in my community.
Check out Shamekia’s journalistic skills. Warning: If you are drinking a beverage, please set it aside and swallow before continuing, because this puts the ‘gomer’ in Montgomery.
Best known as one of the popular housewives on Bravo’s reality show “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, Phaedra Parks spoke to students of Alabama State University about leadership, black history month and the steps she’s taken to reach success.
Well, ain’t that special. Phaedra Parks is speaking to our future generations about how to become successful.
Parks was guest speaker of ASU’s Student Lecture Series and spoke about the promotion of her new book “Secrets of a Southern Belle and gave the first 100 students at the lecture a free copy.
This sentence gives me horrible flashbacks to the time I was forced to teach English 099 at an open door college. This writing sample would not gain someone an exit ticket from the program. It also makes me wonder what happened to Phaedra’s left over books.
In “Secrets of a Southern Belle”, Parks addresses topics such as fashion, grooming, manners, dating, careers, friendships and more.
A native of Georgia, not only does she star in a Reality show, but she is the managing partner of The Parks Group law firm, a licensed mortician and funeral director, a TV show producer and actor.
She is a licensed mortician? When did she get her license? Last I heard she was a licensed apprentice and part-time mortuary student. What funeral home is she is she director of with those “qualifications”? What television shows has she produced? And don’t even pretend that “consulting” on Tiny and Toya makes anyone a “producer.” Please share some of her acting roles because I was unaware she even had a SAG card. Why not add rocket scientist to this list?
Parks is the wife of fitness expert Apollo Nida and she is involved with multiple charities and sits on numerous boards, including the Junior League.
While Apollo has earned a certificate that allows him to teach classes at 24 hour fitness, that’s not really what he is known for, dear. That’s like saying Bernie Madoff is a financial advisor. So you weren’t able to come up with the names of any charities that Phaedra is involved with either? I am pretty sure that the Junior League Advisory Board of the Atlanta Chapter is furiously clutching their pearls over that last part.
The only board Phaedra Parks has to look forward to sitting on is the one in the visiting cubicle at the Federal Penitentiary. It remains to be seen what side of the glass she will be sitting on.
