Phaedra Parks Talks Downfalls Of Reality TV


Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks is appearing on the March cover of Upscale Magazine and is speaking out about the downfalls of being a reality TV star. Accompanied by Tameka Raymond (Atlanta Exes) and LaTavia Robertson (R&B Divas Atlanta), Phaedra explains that while RHOA may have scripted moments, the cast certainly aren’t treated like real actors.

“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays,”Phaedra says of one of the glaring pitfalls of being on reality TV. “We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so they’re getting talent for a nominal fee. They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”

Do you think reality stars should be able to get benefits of joining the SAG?

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
