Phaedra Parks may be a part of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but don’t expect her to get caught up in all of the show’s drama.
To hear her tell it, Parks is focused on her business and things that matter most to her.
“Textgate happened in 2012; it’s 2014 and they are still trying to run that storyline,” the reality TV star told “Good Day Atlanta” about the situation between her husband and “RHOA” co-star Kenya Moore. “Unlike some of the other ladies, my life is very full. So, I don’t have to talk about something from two years ago and obsess with foolery. At the end of the day, I’m a mom first. I love my two sons; they’re just my angels.”
In typical Parks fashion, rather than directly address the drama on “RHOA” or the reality of her husband’s arrest, she deflected the questions to her standard Southern Belle BS answer which doesn’t tell you anything.
“A lot of times we’re divulging too much information about everything. You go somewhere and people are telling you about their very intimate surgical procedures,” she said. “I don’t want to know that you’ve had things removed, you’ve had things added. It’s just certain things that should be a secret. I just don’t want to hear about all that stuff.
“A true Southern Belle can do everything: She’s smart. She’s witty. She’s very creative and she’s very resourceful,” continued Parks, who hasn’t been involved in any physical altercations on the show. “I think being a lady is definitely a lost art, but of course being on my show we see very bad behavior with social media and all of the Twitter trolls and being mean. It seems to be more fashionable for ladies to be mean moreso than nice. I just thought it would be refreshing to talk about being a lady and going back to some of the core values we used to really admire, we used to aspire to.”
It would be refreshing if you answered the questions. Anyway, to see Phaedra Parks’ interview with “Good Day Atlanta,” where she talks more about her book and leaving a legacy for her sons, check out the video here.
