It’s actually a pretty bleak day in Atlanta. It’s cold and wet and cloudy. But the spackle and spanx crews are working overtime today. There are a few vans in the RHOAs driveways this morning and while that could really mean anything over a dozen tour buses nearby lead me to believe they may be filming a GREAT episode today!
One of the things that makes the neighborhood that Phaedra lives in so awesome is that it is close to Chastain Park. I’ve talked about Chastain Park here before and some of y’all just didn’t understand why it is so great. More than just a beautiful place for kids to play soccer and families to picnic, Chastain has an outdoor amphitheater where people an bring their own food and booze(!) in for very fancy picnics. In the center of the amphitheater are wooden picnic tables that you can purchase for the season. Groups of people (often bought out by businesses these days) buy the tables for the season and the “picnics” can get very fancy. People will hire a butler/waitress type to serve the food and keep the drink glasses full for the whole concert. It’s loads of fun and an Atlanta tradition!
Most of the time, the acts are not exactly A-list. The fun is in the experience. But tonight, JANET JACKSON is at Chastain! In fact she is already there! There are at least twelve huge tour buses in the park! I hope that the weather clears up, but I think this rain is here for the weekend. Could the housewives be headed to the concert? Would they let Bravo in?
I wonder if Missy Elliot will show up to sing BURNITUP! with Janet! I guess we will have to see what happens, but that is where all the cool kids will be tonight! I’m excited and I am not even going. It’s JANET JACKSON, y’all!
Stay tuned for updates from my spies in the hood…
