Wow. The 3rd season of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ hasn’t even started yet and already the drama has begun.

It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but people in the know are saying well-known Atlanta celebrity attorney Phaedra Parks will be the newest addition to the cast of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’.

That’s too bad because, as Phaedra surely knows, once you put yourself out there publicly, you open yourself (and your closet) to public scrutiny.

But Phaedra is notorious for chasing the limelight by dating rappers, professional athletes and ballers such as Mannie Fresh of Cash Money Records (whom friends say she dated for years), rapper Too Short (whom friends say she dumped when their relationship didn’t include plans of marriage) and former NFL player Chuck Smith.

Now that she’s a public figure, Phaedra also has to worry about those thirsty heathens over on Lipstick Alley trotting out their stories about her husband (or her for that matter).

My loyal reader sent this mugshot which she alleges to be of Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida. It doesn’t look like him to me. I even removed Apollo’s facial hair for a better comparison, but I’m still not sure it’s him. What do you guys think?

She also informed me that Phaedra’s husband, Apollo Nida, along with five other men, were charged with 20 counts of alleged violation of the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and multiple counts of theft by receiving stolen vehicles.

I refuse to believe any of that. I choose to believe that Phaedra has more common sense than to hook up with an ex-con just so she can be on a reality TV show.
