Those of you new to Tamara Tattles may not have read my post about Phaedra’s “religious” shindig for her first born son Ayden. Do click the link to learn about the chocolate baby Jesus and how the child was carried into the church on a litter and proclaimed to be a prince. Kidding not. So guess what she did for the second son?
I was wondering what sort of pomp and circumstance Phaedra Parks would come up with for the new baby, Dylan. It was months before Phaedra even told anyone the new baby’s name. It seems she wanted to have a “traditional African naming ceremony” for Dylan. So are Phaedra or Apollo African? No. No, they are not. While every human on earth has African roots (Ethiopia in particular) most of us do not know where on the vast continent our particular lineage comes from. Baby naming ceremonies are still somewhat popular in Kenya, Nigeria and to a lesser extent Egypt. So did Phaedra gather her tribe, strap the baby on her back and wait in a tribal hut while the eldest member of her tribe names the baby? Does the baby have an African name? No, no and Nope. Once again, Phaedra undermines solemn traditions and religious beliefs of others to put on a show for Bravo.
The latest bizarre baby brouhaha occurred on October 19th at the church. It remains to be seen whether chocolate baby Jesus will be served again. Or if both boys will be carried into the sanctuary in some sort of royal garb. But rest assured we will be treated to the over the top experience this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Am I alone in being appalled by these ostentatious events? That said, Phaedra and Apollo sure do make cute babies.
