TV FAB: Phaedra Parks LANDS BRAVO Spinoff “Rich People’s Problems” + Zoe Saldana COVERS “InStyle Hair” Magazine

"RHOA" star Phaedra Parks will be starring on her own BRAVO spinoff next season.  Get the deets on her tv show inside and see Zoe Saldana on the cover of "InStyle Hair" magazine…..

In addition to her duties as the sassy Southern belle of "RHOA", lawyer turned reality star Phaedra Parks joins the short list of  BRAVO "Housewives" who’ve been given their own spinoff series. 

According to information released by the network, the show’s working title is "Rick People’s Problems" and will show Phaedra acting in a legal/judicial capacity.  The show’s synopsis reads, 

“When the rich and famous of Atlanta have a dispute, they know that only one lawyer will deliver some cold, hard justice: Phaedra Parks of “The Real Housewife of Atlanta.” Whether it’s friends battling over an $ 8,000 loan or accusations of stolen Chanel handbags or confusion over a prenuptial agreement and whether it entitles you to two or three live-in staff members, the rich certainly have an odd sense of what qualifies as a problem in today’s world, and Phaedra will be there to help them sort it all out.”

Hmmm….Phaedra isn’t as quick witted as Judge Judy but it sounds like it might be worth a look.  And she’ll find herself in good company as Kandi Burruss has also been greenlit for "The Kandi Factory" and NeNe Leakes is rumored to have her own wedding-themed spinoff.


And on magazine racks….

Zoe Saldana covers the latest issue of InStyle Hair where she opens up about how important her hair is to her and her culture.  She told the mag,

"In Latino culture, hair carries a lot of history, a lot of weight, and a lot of energy. I always liked my hair. I never wanted to have any other skin but my own, any other hair but my own. Women who spend so much of their lives wanting to have something else miss out on learning to appreciate what they do have.”

OUCH. Was that a wig/weave diss?  Zoe’s full interview and cover hit magazine stands on April 5.

Fantasia Reveals She’s No Longer With Antwaun, Says “He Learned To Not Play With People’s Hearts”

Fantasia‘s covering the upcoming April 2013 issue of Sister 2 Sister.  And she dropped a couple nuggets about her and Antwaun Cook splitting, and how he learned his lesson.  Excerpts inside….


Looks like Fanny’s smartened up afterall.  The "Lose To Win" singer opened up to Jamie Foster Brown of S2S about ending the relationship with her then married baby’s daddy Antwaun and now focusing on herself and her kids.

On the status of her and Antwaun’s relationship

Me and Antwaun, as of now, we are not together. I think it’s the best thing for us all. We had to learn how to become friends again. There was so much stuff that came out. We were all hurt along the way. There’s trust issues. There’s just a lot of stuff that kinda got put in the mix. And I, at one point, I wanted to make everybody else happy. To love him, to make sure Zion was okay, to make sure everything—but I had to get to a place where I had to learn how to love Fantasia. I never did that, Jamie. And if I don’t love myself, then I can’t be in a relationship.

On the lessons she feels he’s learned
He’ll say, “I learned that you can’t play with people’s hearts.” I think every man gets to a place of knowing that they wanna be faithful and they wanna be good fathers and good husbands and good boyfriends… Things play out for you to say, okay, it’s time for me to man up or it’s time for me to woman up. I think we both have a lot of regrets of how things just happened; it all happened so fast. I just went full-speed ahead and that’s why I was tellin’ you now. I think out everything before I do it. Everything.

The full interview will be inside the issue, on stands now.
