Phaedra Parks: Why I Won ‘Most Eccentric’ In High School


RHOA star Phaedra Parks is revealing why she won ‘Most Eccentric’ in high school in a new interview with Bravo. Phaedra also shares her thoughts on NeNe and Cynthia’s sit-down and Derek J’s legal case. Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation. Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions. Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to “most eccentric,” I know I’d rather be a little weird than all boring — that’s just me!

  1. Wow, Phaedra’s high school sure had a lot of really specific and obscure accolades to award their Seniors! EVERYONE must have gotten at least one, she got, what 5? Anyway, I agree, it was a good move girl the other ladies at the lunch yo leave Cynthia and NeNe alone yo have their heart-to-heart. Although it seems that only Cynthia was sincere.

    1. Phaedra definable knows her etiquette – even if at times like any human being she forgets when in the heat of a moment involving herself…lol
