Phaedra Parks of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" Receives Nobel Prize

In the latest reality television buzz, Phaedra Parks, the newest member of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," has earned the spotlight by arriving on the set with some serious, prepackaged, made for TV "baggage" in the form of an ex-convict husband and a bun in the oven.
Bravo TV's synopsis of episode 1 calls Phaedra "the pregnant, classy, but sassy attorney-to-the stars."  Amongst her client list are names like "Tiny and Toya" from the BET reality series, and Bobby Brown from the music and spousal abuse industries.  In her personal life, Phaedra is married to a man named Appolo who was arrested for a white collar crime back in 2004.  Many reality TV viewers and gossipers believe that Phaedra's situation will create plenty of drama for Bravo's Atlanta Housewives, while critics believe she was recruited for no reason other than these extraneous details of her life. 

The self proclaimed southern belle's personal business has already been dragged through the press.  She fell in love with an ex-con and everybody seems to have an opinion about it. “People always talk," said Phaedra, "but I know who he is and I know who I am. I have a wonderful marriage with him and we have a wonderful family.” 

In addition to being a high-powered, pregnant attorney married to an ex-convict, Phaedra is also a huge humanitarian, creating the Cookies for Convicts Foundation that brings computers to death row inmates, and pioneering the reality television show industry's movement into impoverished, war-torn, third-world countries. Thanks to Phaedra, convicts can now e-mail their pardon requests to governors directly, and next season Bravo will be broadcasting exciting, new shows such as "So You Think You Can Dance on Land Mines," "Meal or No Meal," and "Are You Smarter Than a Heat Seeking Missile?" 
Locally, Phaedra volunteers her time at elementary schools and orphanages teaching children about the value of education, the lucrativeness of the television industry, and that white collar crime should be regarded differently than crime that's actually motivated by genuine, human need. But that's not all. Phaedra also dabbles in biochemistry and recently stumbled upon a cure for cancer that doubles as a contraceptive device. A week later, she received news that she was being awarded the Nobel Prize for Unlikely Discoveries. "It's just a weekend hobby," said the reality show starlet, "I wasn't looking for a cure for cancer as much as I was just trying to tone down the hops in my latest home brew." 
Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good, and when it comes to Phaedra Parks that's exactly what Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" is banking on.
