It’s panic attack Tuesday at Tamara Tattles Media today as we are preparing for the Thanksgiving holidays. So I was very late to the office today. Pretty much every email I read so far is completely bizarre news. I’ll try to get to as much of it as I can, but Phaedra’s newest claims are just ridiculous.
I think Phaedra has literally come unglued since being fired from RHOA. I am dead serious when I say I think she is having some sort of mental health breakdown and someone needs to get her some help.
Recently, she was pretending that she was dating Shemar Moore, a man she met one time on a talk show months ago. She was publicly humiliated when Shemar Moore had to make a statement that he is in fact not dating her, she’s not his type, and he only met her once while drunk filming WWHL. Seemingly unbothered, Phaedra has been traveling and having people take bizarre photos of her.
Now she has sold a story to US Magazine where she claims she is a Wilhelmina Model. I am not making this up, but Phaedra probably is. I’m going to purple pen this whole sack of crazy.
Stylish: Tell us, what are your goals for modeling?
Parks: I think I’m the face of “yes you can.” I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?” A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!
There are no words to address this.
Stylish: Tell US about how you feel about representing an under-served market.
Parks: I feel great about being different, in light of what’s going on now, politically … I think women need to be empowered to stand in their truth, to be different, dare to be diverse and stand up in times of controversy. I’m excited for that part.
So, what is it that you are planning to stand up for?
Stylish: What would be your dream campaign?
Parks: Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.
And yet every single photo of you online you are wearing two full inches of makeup.
Stylish: Who are your biggest modelings inspirations?
Parks: Of course [Naomi] Campbell, she is everything, so fierce. Also Nicki Minaj. She’s done such a great job reinventing herself and changing the standards of beauty. And she’s been a big supporter of me.
Oh please elaborate on how Nicki Minaj supports you. We’ll wait. I should also point out that Nicki Minaj actually did recently sign with Wilhelmina. They have a new “celebrity” division where they partner with a handful of major celebrities to represent them with product endorsements. Phaedra clearly things she needs someone to help her with getting contracts with MAC just like Nicki Minaj. She has a very high opinion of herself while living in her imaginary world.
Stylish: How do you feel about showing some skin and really taking it off for the camera?
Parks: I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national T.V. I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.
Yes, I do recall the exotic entertainers, female midgets, RiDICKulous, both come to mind. That background makes you a perfect fit for Wilhelmina. Then there is all the THOTwear you insisted on wearing on all the beach trips. It’s a miracle you hadn’t been signed before now!
Stylish: Have you changed any fitness or beauty routines?
Parks: Well I swim everyday, I love pilates with the reformer and recent events made me tone it up.
You swim every day? We’ve never heard you mention swimming before. Never wanted to near the water on beach vacations beyond an ankle deep frolic with Porsha. Recent events made you tone what up?
Stylish: Do you think wrapping up your divorce led you to get a revenge body?
Parks: Well, a lot of things happened in my personal life. Going through everything was so much stress, but then when it finished it was just effortless. I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy.
You don’t seem happy. And what was effortless, the photoshopping?
Stylish: How are the businesses?
Parks: Being a mortician is a passion of mine and everything I’m passionate about I just dive right in. This is our peak season actually, the peak season from deaths is from Halloween to around Valentine’s Day, so we’re very busy — people are going to glory pretty regularly. I’m directing a few funerals this weekend. I know it’s morbid, but I love being the final party planner.
Who the hell is “our”? You do not own a funeral home. You are not some sort of freelance mortician. You do not have any funerals this weekend. You have lost your last marble. Did you just type, “people are going to glory pretty regularly?” What is wrong with you?
Does US Magazine fact check any of this before posting a story with a title, that includes the words g-string and funeral??? Does this seem remotely possible to you?
