Phaedra Parks Throws Shade at Costars on “Ellen” & Claudia Jordan Responds

As we wave good bye to the RHONJ this weekend, it’s time to go south y’all! Quite a bit has changed on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and to get us warmed up for the seventh season of the Atlanta franchise, Phaedra Parks made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, to catch us all up on the major changes in her personal life, and to dish on the upcoming season. Thank you to Twitter friend @UniqueShakur88 for bringing this pressing matter to my attention.

 

The forced southern belle persona kicked into high gear immediately as the Bravolebrity/lawyer/mortician/mother/breastfeeder/college student and wife of a jailed thief sat rigidly to chat with Ellen. When Ellen asked about her incarcerated husband, Apollo Nida, and if she claimed any awareness of his criminal activities, Phaedra denied knowing anything at all…while her eyes shifted upwards,downwards, sideways, and only occasionally at Ellen. Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight years in federal prison after pleading guilty to theft and identity fraud, back in March. The hustle had been going on for four years, and Apollo was already on parole following a previous prison stint when Phaedra married him.  According to Parks, the whole thing was a complete shock, but she worked hard to get him the best defense.  She has since filed for divorce.

“So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do everything I could, because I’m an attorney myself. I wanted him to have the best, so we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”

Phaedra said she has just been too darn busy excelling to notice that the father of her two children had never changed his sketchy ways. You would think that this self professed “overachiever” might have seen the giant, waving red flag…unless of course, she herself was the flag bearer.

“I work, I just got my fifth college degree, and so I am pretty much an overachiever,” Parks told DeGeneres. “I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea that any of this was going on until he called me and said, ‘Hey I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.”

It’s interesting to note that Parks seemed to pause while listing off her achievements, seemingly hoping for some applause, which didn’t happen. I wonder why?

Ellen moved on to a game where she asked Phaedra to describe her Housewives cast mates with one quick thought. Parks predictably snarked on the different women, but new cast member and radio host, Claudia Jordan proved that she didn’t sign up with Bravo to play nice with a poser. Claudia had apparently been defending Kenya Moore during the season, and that earned her Parks’ hard thought tag of ‘Kenya Jr’.  Claudia fired back hard by tweeting a link to Angela Stanton’s memoir, where Stanton allegedly exposes the five degree earning, though innocently clueless, Phaedra Parks, as an overachieving criminal, in cahoots with soon to be ex husband, Apollo Nida.

 I wasn’t looking forward to the RHOA this season…but SCRATCH THAT…because I think I may have found a new favorite Housewife!

    Oh Beach Spin! Can we say damn! I think maybe this will be a fun one & I’ve never watch this one Bc I couldn’t STAND NENE!!!! She may stand up to her also, this may be fun!

    • BeachSpin

      NeNe is the absolute worst!! But this woman combined with Kenya is giving me hope! You better watch KJ!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Yes Nene is horrible…a Hater with a Platform…and a bad wig.

  • CoolBreeze14

    Hollering!!! Thanks for the shout out AATT! Claudia caused quite a commotion on social media yesterday evening and this morning talking about Phaedra. She even posted a pic of a frog on her Instagram along with Demetria and Cynthia also throwing their shade and it was hilarious! Claudia is becoming my favorite, although I was already more on Team Pretty’s side anyway. Only “ignant” folk stan for Nene, Phaedra, and Porsha. Kandi is cool.
    Novemeber 9th can’t get here fast enough I tell you! Can you imagine the shade these girls will be throwing throughout the season and oh my goodness, the reunion!

    • AMEN!! I hope you changed your mind and will watch the new season. It looks really good.

      • CoolBreeze14

        Hey Seuss! Oh definitely I’m going to watch! I’m just not team twirl anymore…I’m team pretty though, LOL! What I found hilarious about that Phaedra clip on Ellen is that she was making all these everyday excuses as to why she supposedly didn’t know what her husband was doing. Ellen looked so bored and uninterested like “let’s just let this criminal come on this show and sell her bull so I can get some ratings and more money…”

    • RonnieIsBack

      Yassss Hunty!!!

  • Marsbars09

    I love Claudia Jordan’s tweet that she is #TeamAngelaStanton. Take that Fake!
    Fake looked like she got some work done to her face-her skin is stretched so tight it looks like it hurts for her to smile.
    I do not buy Fake’s woe is me act. I guess she’s trying to sell that to the rest of America on a mainstream talk show. Hopefully then truth will be revealed real soon about her.

    • CoolBreeze14

      Hey Mars! Them chicks get those fat checks and go get face lifts and all kind of crap to stay looking a certain way. LOL. I’ve seen Phaedra without makeup and ooohhh….she looks Curious George with the flu!

      • Marsbars09

        Ewww! I don’t want to envision Fake without make- up. (Shudders).

        • CoolBreeze14

          Lol!

      • say_no_go

        O-M-G!!!!! DEAD, WOKE UP, DEAD AGAIN.. THIS ISHT IS TOO DANG FUNNY

        • CoolBreeze14

          Lol! It’s the truth, just straight ugly! I feel sorry for those boys that they were born to a hippofrogamus!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Boom! Love Ms. Claudia! also Fakedra is just plain ridiculous..her lyin azz…She was soooo supportive, I guess that’s why she showed up at his sentencing…
    yeah riiiiiigh.
    #ByeStuggleTiddaysFelicia

    • Bwahahaha @ ByeStuggleTiddaysFelicia!!! Happy Friday!! 🙂

      • CoolBreeze14

        Y’all some fools!!!

        • HAHAHAHAHAHA!! That shit is funeeee!

          • CoolBreeze14

            I can’t wait til the show starts! The social media servers will be down!

    • CoolBreeze14

      Lol!!!

  • nan/4

    They had to use at least THREE airbrushes on that picture of Phake-Phake, breaking two of them in the process of working on that picture of her! LOL!

    Morning everyone. I hope that you all have a very nice weekend! 😉

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey Nan I hope you are doing well. Hugs.

      • nan/4

        I’m hangin’ in here Ronnie, thanks! How have you been, and how has your Mom been fairing? I hope that everyone is doing fine. 😉

        Good to see you Ronnie!

  • Dani-K

    I watched this interview and was surprised by Ellen’s hard-line questioning. Way to go Ellen! Phaedra is so fake! I don’t believe for a second she didn’t have any idea what her husband was up to.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Looking forward to the day when Fakedra gets her Three Hots and a Cot. #JailTime

    • CoolBreeze14

      Lol!

  • nan/4

    I have never heard of Claudia Jordan, but wow, she’s stunning, and it looks like she’s going to give some of the “housewives” a hard time of it. Oh boy, this is going to be fun! 😉 Can’t wait!

  • murlut

    Angela coudn’t do it and now Claudia thinks she can. Good luck. Its beginning to make me think Angela has been lying all the time

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    OH SNAP!!! Runs to go follow Claudia on twitter…

  • nan/4

    I’m SURE that if she hadn’t been breastfeeding, she would have known that her husband was up to no good. Yeah…..right. What a crock of bulls$it! There is no doubt in my mind that Phake-Phake was involved. It’s just a matter of time for the truth to unravel. Jmo folks! 😉

    • Amen & thank you for stating the obvious. Notice after she gives her little spiel about working on her 5th degree, she looks at Ellen for a sympathy response and Ellen gives nothing. I thought that part was funny.

      • nan/4

        Hiya Doc! Yeah, Ellen looked like she wasn’t buying a word of it! She sounded like an absolute FOOL!!!!!

        I hope you have a very nice weekend! 😉

        • Happy Friday, doll. Nope, Ellen showed her zero sympathy. Ellen is not stupid. Phaedra lies with such ease tho, it’s scary!!!

          • nan/4

            I think she’s pretty transparent though. Especially in this interview! Her “southern belle” act is losing it’s luster…..

          • YES! She also looks like a troll with those short muscular arms.

          • nan/4

            LOL!!!!!!!!

          • BeachSpin

            Is that muscle under there?

          • Hahahahaha!!!!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Which is why I LOVE Ellen.

      • CoolBreeze14

        That was funny Seuss! Ellen was like YAWN!

    • BeachSpin

      UH HUH!!!

    • hardtimz

      LOL ok!! Damn I nursed, hell you’re not doing it all day, and so friggin busy with nursing you don’t notice your husband it a few extra coins. Give me a friggin break!!

  • Birdie11

    I think Phaedra is getting over enunciating confused with telling the truth. Surely, no one bought that performance.

  • say_no_go

    I for one, red Angela’s book and I believe everything she has to say. Phoney Phadrea is a lying a$$ snake.

    • Hey doll! Happy Friday!!

  • hardtimz

    I thought that I’d watch this season, but I doubt it. Clauda won’t be throwing too shade, due to the fact that she’s on a HORRID…and I do mean HORRID nationally syndicated morning show. Kenya still there w/the same disgusting behavior…I”m good! ABTT…better make the recaps juicy other wise I’m out of the loop! Hey everybody HAPPY FRIDAY!!

    • Birdie11

      Can you share about the morning show…I know nothing about it…how is it horrid?

      • hardtimz

        It’s a morning radio show called The Ricky Smiley morning show. Their on urban stations mostly in the south. They try to be funny but they are not. But you should be able to also catch it on line. Look it up and tell me what you think..

      • hardtimz

        Birdie that show comes on M-F from 6 am to 10am. Try and catch it, it’s also on line.

    • Hi Hardtimz! You gotta watch with us. Come on, we need you snark on these clowns with us.

      • hardtimz

        Thanks honey…I’ll get back on it!

  • CoolBreeze14

    I’m no fan of Rickey Smiley at all though. Him and Horsha had the nerve to be joking about Ebola. Tacky, ignant ninjas!

    • Are you serious? That’s low class.

      • CoolBreeze14

        Yes!

    • hardtimz

      LMAOOOOO not Horsha…..that is tooo damn funny!!! I like that one…good one!!! They are so friggin stupid on that show. I’m truly shocked that their still on the air…terrible!

      • CoolBreeze14

        LMBO! I’ve been calling her that for 2 years now! That’s what she looks like to me. I don’t see all this beauty, she just has a nice figure. That is it! I think Claudia is well liked on the show but then again you got haters already saying she’s a professional hoe so who knows LOL. Claudia seems cool to me.

        • hardtimz

          OMG you have,dang I’m late…but sure is a goooood one!!!!

    OMG that’s the best looking picture of Phaedra that I’ve ever seen. It really doesn’t look like her. Is that really her? I can’t stand any of those messy chicks on the show, but Claudia speaks the truth about them. Especially Nene and her “no edges” LOL!
