Let’s face it. The Real Housewives of ANYWHERE make terrible neighbors. But the Real Housewives of Atlanta have taken it to an art form. Remember when Kim Zolciak was in that house she rented from Kendra Davis? There was a time when Kim had security guards hanging out on her front lawn to keep Kendra and her husband, the landlords, away from her. When she moved she took most of the landscape with her (because she planted it, dammit!) and gave it away to her new neighbors in the surrounding condos! Kenya Moore had landlord issues as well and of course both of those cases the cameras would invade the neighborhood and film all the drama. Hell, Kim had a huge wedding in her back yard and the cops were called. Sheree Whitfield had neighbors MOVE OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD over the massive over construction that never ends on the monstrosity of what may, one day, some how be, Chateau Sheree.

Up until recently, Phaedra Parks has managed to get along with her neighbors fairly well. Then in April of 2013 Phaedra and Phamily moved into a nice quiet cul-de-sac. It’s off to itself, and not officially part of any subdivision. Just five very nice houses in a very convenient location. Then filming started. Last season, the black van that supposedly picked everyone up at Nene’s for the Savannah trip actually picked everyone up house to house. All of the “who was late to the pick-up time” was entirely fabricated. Neighbors say that bus was in the cul-de-sac filming Phaedra getting on the bus for two hours. Why? Who knows. But it was not really the housewives arrivals that were late it was the long drawn out filming of everyone getting on the bus. In fact that waiting scene was probably a reshoot afterward because by the time the bus actually left it was quite late, which is why they arrived in Savannah so late.
But last year’s filming was pretty tame at Phaedra’s. This year has not been. Between the filming crews and all the comings and goings and book tours, and side pieces and malfunctioning security alarms and police, the baby sitters, the nannies, the overnight nannies, the stylists, the make up people and on and on the neighborhood is not such a peaceful place anymore.
