“Housewife” Phaedra Parks to judge battle of the legal bands

Phaedra-Parks-biography“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Phaedra Parks will put her entertainment and legal acumen to work Saturday as a judge of the Atlanta Bar Foundation’s “LawJam” fundraiser.

The event, which starts at 7:15 p.m. at the Variety Playhouse, features the following acts: Bellwether Station, Book Club, CussinWillas, Marshall Seese and the Abandoned, Melanie & the Felonies, Section 8, Ship of Fools, and The Subpoenas. The rocking barristers will compete for top honors by collecting $1 per “vote” from the audience as well as by charming the judges.

Parks, who is an entertainment lawyer, will be joined by fellow judges Lisa F. Moore of the Moore Law Offices and Georgia Lawyers for the Arts and Brian R. Smith of Arnall Golden Gregory and lead singer of last year’s winning band, Tron Jackson.

The audience vote tally and judges’ decision will be combined to produce this year’s winner.

The event is open to the public at $30 per ticket. It’s $10 per ticket for law students. Proceeds benefit the Atlanta Bar Foundation, the charitable arm of the Atlanta Bar Association, which funds projects that support youth, pro bono legal services, higher education through scholarships and public understanding of the law. The Foundation also maintains an annual grant program to support pro bono legal service providers that serve low income citizens in the Atlanta.

Love Phaedra, she is the only Housewife, (other than Kandi) that I respect.

Honestly, she is one of the most homely women I have ever seen. What makes it funny is that she thinks she’s more than beautiful.

Never really think of “respect” when any of the Housewives are mentioned.

That is a square head she has there.

Right you are Justin. BTW a friend of mine went to high school and law school with Phaedra and said she was always super nice and very smart. I interviewed her once for a story and enjoyed speaking with her.

Okay, so she looks like on of those Dammit dolls but she seems to have it together. Her husband is hot.

Why is this news? That said, I do like Phaedra and her antics on the show. She’s knows how to work it in front of the camera, whether you like what she’s doing/saying or not. You can’t help but want to see what she comes up with next! And her ex-con husband, Apollo, is quite the looker and seems nice.

It’s news Pelvis because Jennifer is a lazy journalist who just reguritates any old press release that is emailed to her. That is how this works at the AJC now. Used to be “news” now it is just a forum for celebrity wannabes like this idiot to get in teh paper. Keep it classy AJC!

Does Miss Phaedra do divorce cases? Because if she does I’m sure she’ll be getting a call relatively soon from either Kim ‘Zolkiwhaky’ or that dimwitted new husband of hers.

Ok Ladies, let’s not be so judgemental and keep it positive. I never knew women were this different in Atlanta. Wow. If you do not have anything to say nice, how about keeping your mouth closed. Never say Never you could very well be in a situation you do not want to be in one day. There is life and death in the tongue. Peace

Amy – I have given up wondering why people log onto the entertainment blog and then complain that it is full of entertainment news. It’s like walking into a library and complaining about all the books. Oh well. *Shrug* :)

Thanks for an informative story, Jennifer. This is a very worthy cause and definitely newsworthy! Wish that I had known about it earlier. Glad to know about the Atlanta Bar Foundation. Maybe I can contribute in some other way.

The band that won last year, Tron Jackson, is unbeleiveable. Wish they were back this year.

That girl is one cute, smart and funny individual who is not afraid to” speak her mind.” Don’t worry what others, including housewife partners think or say about you, Phedra as most women are quite insecure and envious if you are attractive and confident as a woman because they generally aren’t happy with themselves so they need to judge and put down someone else to make themselves feel better. Sad that others can’t love themselves and compliment others
as it will only make them happier. Live strong and love stronger. By the way, beautiful baby boy Phedra!

Jennifer, These trolls that run to your blog just to make nasty comments are just desperate lonely people looking for attention. Just pity them.
