Sometimes it’s easy to forget that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks was a well-known celebrity defense attorney long before she began wooing Bravo audiences with her charismatic flair and “everybody knows” words of wisdom.
Check out this highlight reel of pre-Bravolebridom Phaedra from various Atlanta news stations over the years, including footage of her and Bobby Brown during his famous trial for assaulting wife Whitney Houston in 2004, Phaedra’s insight on Michael Jackson’s molestation trial in 2005, and her more recent representation during the retrial of Lena Sims Driskell, an 81-year-old woman convicted in 2006 of shooting her former boyfriend, 85-year-old Herman Winslow.
Phaedra is the younger, blacker, femaler, sexier Matlock y’all! Everybody knows Phaedra Parks deserves her own spin-off reality series! With that in mind, here are some Andy Cohen inspired show title suggestions:
