Cynthia, Phaedra and Claudia At Essence Festival

RHOBH Brandi


Remember when Brandi got so many injections in her cheeks that she looked like the puppet Madame? Well it seems that Phaedra has done the same thing. I know I just did a Phaedra has a new face story, but I was sent a photo from Claudia Jordan’s Instagram that I just have to share.

Normally, I am not a fan of attacking someone’s appearance; however, when someone is mutilating their face, I can’t help but have an opinion.

Claudia, Cynthia and Phaedra are all in New Orleans for Essence Fest with officially ended yesterday. Claudia has a radio gig in LA starting tomorrow morning on KDAY.

RHOA Cynthia, Phaedra, Claudia

The person that sent this photo to me pointed out the “madame” cheeks and the bald head exposure. When I went on Claudia’s Instagram directly most of the chatter was about Phaedra. Several asked about her makeup,”Whose foundation did Phaedra foolishly borrow?” while others did not recognize her, “Who is that in tha middle??!😳.”

I was wondering what in the hell she was wearing. My friend pointed out that she wears something to cover her neck in all the recent photos. He suggested she might be covering a wattle. I thought it looked like a styling technique popular with transgender woman who have not had a tracheal shave.

I have to give Phaedra props for having the kind of self-confidence to stand between two professional models with her bald head glinting in the light of the flash. Who took this overhead photo anyway?

Are we going to be talking about Phaedra’s face all season?

    She’s covering up her wattle LOL –that’s funny as hell. I don’t understand how these weaves and clips and things work—was it pulled forward at the start of the night and has now slipped or what? If that’s the case you’d think one of the other ladies would tell her to check it. Well , then again , maybe they wouldn’t. 🤓🤓. Also I can certainly see why some people didn’t recognize Phaedra. If you go back and look at her in her first season compared to now it’s unreal what all she’s had done.

      HAPPY 4th TT !! I’m dreading the fireworks tonite as well—they scare my cats too like poor sweet Banjo.

    I’m not sure what’s going on with Phaedra. After your prior post with a picture where she was truly unrecognizable, I went to her Instagram page. Aside from all the god-fearing quotes, a couple of pictures with Andy Cohen and Aiden, there are a LOT of pictures with Porscha. They refer to each other as Frick and Frack.

    I thought that their friendship was limited to the show because no one else would film with them. It seems they see each other often and are quite close. At least, that was my observation from looking at Instagram. I also noticed that there weren’t any pictures of Phaedra on her Instagram that resembled this reflection of herself in any posted pics.

      I don’t look on Instagram but on twitter she does have pics from this event & one from earlier post. She does have same appearance as above posing with fans. So it isn’t all filter – mainly makeup & fillers/work since she cannot control fan pics.

    • tamaratattles

      Frick and Frack are only filming friends. The photos you saw were of Porsha’s birthday party and previous photos of the two of them test shooting with Maryam.

      • Matzah60

        Thanks, Tamara! I hope Maryam is a part of the show. Without new blood, the season ends up being a rehash of the same conflicts between the same people, all too predictable.

        Thanks for the post and so many others you put up this holiday weekend! Thoroughly enjoyed and much appreciated!

    The problem with Botox is that not just any Tom, Dick, or Harry can inject it properly. It’s a skill set and not everyone is good at it. If done improperly and at incorrect sites, it will definitely travel a bit giving the face a skewed look. Botox can also be used to correct facial flaws near the jaws. Too many dermatologists and so-called medi-spas have gotten into the game causing people’s looks to be compromised. Brandi looks 100% better now.

    • Leelee

      The issue is filler

      • tamaratattles

        This point apparently bears repeating. A LOT. It’s the exact crap that Brandi Glanville had thus the large photo of her and the links to when we talked about her fillers.

  4. JustJenn

    I shutter to think what these ladies are going to look like when they are older. Some women start botox in their’s truly ridiculous.

  5. Botox isn’t the issue. It’s fillers. Juvaderm.

    I follow Kandi’s Snapchat and she is also at Essence Festival.

    Sorry but that looks like baby hairs to me. Some women choose to use gel to set them in place. I don’t see balding, but that’s just me.

    • Minky

      I’ve gotta say, Phaedra looks more like herself in this photo that in the one from yesterday where she looks like a child.

      Are baby hairs similar to edges? Meaning, are baby hairs also a symptom of traction alopecia? I’m asking because I really don’t know. And do edges grow back? I’ve seen some recent pictures of Naomi Campbell’s natural hairline and it’s truly sad.

    • tamaratattles

      Baby hairs/edges are around the edges of the hairline. Did you miss the fact that she doesn’t have any hair over an eighth of an inch going back a good three inches on the left (bald) side of her head? She needs to wear wigs instead of weaves for a couple of years and hope that shit grows back in!

      • Dee

        I see it! That’s more than edges!

      • Minky

        Thank you. Now it makes more sense.

      • Jaye

        Tamara you’ve got me CRYING with laughter over here!! LOL – I don’t know what that other person’s looking at, because she is going STRAIGHT UP BALD!! Like you said…”Baby hair” lays around the edges of the actual hairline. That is CLEARLY thinning hair exposed. You can literally see her scalp!

      • T D

        She’s covering the flat top where Abby someone’s braiin was installed. Puttin’ on the Ritz.

      • Minky

        @TD I love a good “Young Frankenstein” reference. Sqweeeeeee!

  8. She looks like a cross between a Bratz doll & Michael/LaToya Jackson. LOL! Hope it is the filter thing & she doesn’t look like this in real life. Just scary!

  9. Bryn

    I must be losing it because I don’t see this big of a difference??? I think nene seems to be the one who doesn’t even sort of look like herself anymore. Nene’s new look is shocking to me.

  10. Ms.Minnie

    Fix It Jesus

    • Minky

      Didn’t Phaedra once say that God was very pleased with her?

      And besides, why would Jesus waste his time with this? Especially if He’s the one who did it in the first place. I’m assuming. Whatever. 😇

  11. T D

    The chokers cover the scar and neckbolts.

  12. It might be the camera angle and lighting. There are other fillers than botox, such as belatoro, restalin, juvaderm. Who said she has had fillers? If you can afford to keep yourself up, why not. As far as I can see, she’s not in need of any work. Phaedra is still attractive are so are the other ladies. Happy 4th everybody.

    • tamaratattles

      You should probably read some of the comments. She’s had work. Really BAD work.

      • Carie

        Could Phaedra have also gotten veneers? Her top teeth used to not reallyh show when she smiled *but* now they seem to; there was an arc.

  13. SB

    Her face is so puffy and stiff.

  14. Alicia

    People are going to get enough of injecting themselves with that garbage. I would rather grow old gracefully. These women are going to wish that they have used Oil of Olay.

  15. Beerandy

    Phaedra must be using the same plastic surgeon as Quad from Married to Medicine. She posted a pic earlier on Instagram and I thought it was Quad for a minute.

    • Joanplus2dogs

      In the earlier post about Phaedra face, that is Quad at the end of pic. Quad, Phaedra, & Porsha sitting together. They do all look similar so maybe same doctor & makeup artist.

  16. Cat

    Looks like her cheek is ready to pop.

    Kind of reminds me of my chipmunks. But it’s cute on them.

  17. She looks like Chucky.

  18. Michie

    Her weaves are definitely different. I’ve noticed other pics where the weave looks further back & looks like her hair is receeding. I hope it’s just the install.
