Phaedra Parks Lands Spin-Off + Jay-Z Launches Roc Nation Sports, Signs Yankees Baller


Although Real Housewives of Atlanta season five has come to an abrupt, yet entertaining end, we haven’t seen the last of our favorite “Ultimate Southern Belle” Phaedra Parks. Earlier today, Bravo announced  ‘Rich People’s Problem’s’ will highlight the mom-to-be and her wealthy clients. According to the official release:

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.

Phaedra will be the third Atlanta housewife (Kandi Burruss show‘The Kandi Factory’  premieres April 9 and former cast mate Kim Zolciak ‘Don’t Be Tardy’ premieres April 16) to land her own spinoff.

Congrats to her! In other news,
