‘RHOA’ Star Phaedra Parks Gets a Spinoff Show That Will Get Old Fast

phaedra parksAnother day, another Real Housewife getting her own show. This time, it's Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, and while who doesn't love Phaedra and her charming Southern drawl? -- enough already, Bravo!

The spinoff, tentatively called Rich People's Problems, will focus on Phaedra's original career as an attorney (as opposed to a mortician or donkey booty workout instructor), and it will follow her around as she sorts out the legal disputes of Atlanta's elite. "Whether it's friends battling over an $8,000 loan or accusations of stolen Chanel handbags ... the rich certainly have an odd sense of what qualifies it as a problem in today's world, and Phaedra will be there to help them sort it all out," the tagline reads.

Oh. Okay.

First, there was Bethenny Getting Married (since turned into Bethenny Ever After), which I admit, although a little nails-on-a-chalkboardy, is still interesting. Then there was Kim Zolciak's Don't Be Tardy. Then there was Vanderpump Rules, which pretty much has zero to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Vanderpump, and is more a glamorous version of The Real World, only set in a restaurant. And now this. As much of a Housewives junkie that I am, it's too much. I feel like I live with these people. 

When it was just OC and then NY, Housewives was one of those things you couldn't wait for. And when they started adding more cities -- great! Housewives year-round! Works for me! But the four spinoffs are getting precariously close into jump-the-shark territory. I love all these ladies, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. And four spinoffs is too much of a good thing. 

But that said, I'll probably watch the shit out of this.

What do you think of a Phaedra spinoff?

Personally, I ADORE Phaedra AND her Southern drawl ...and her wacky faces..and ...and her sense of humor..and HER INTELLIGENCE.  I will definitely watch this show.  I can't wait til this comes out...and yeah, you'll " watch the Sh*t out of this", so quit hating on Phaedra!!!

U r right. I even watched the DC franchise! The spin offs aren't all that.Love Bethenny, didn't watch her getting married OR ever after ( & I don't need to see Bethenny's Getting Divorced!) excited for Vanderpump Rules, until I figured out it had nothing to do w/ Lisa NOR Sur. Watched Don't b Tardy's wedding bit, won't watch the series. You forgot the upcoming The Kandi Factory. loved the special, hope the spin off works. I wonder if Kandi gets paid for Kim's spinoff title? I still look forward to NYC as there r now just the ladies who don't really have anything TO spinoff. I know Miami ladies are zzzzzzzz BORING, so watching them through a season is enuff.! These r @bravoandy 's babies... But pick a new city (Seattle?) and lets stop the spinoff machine already. (Ps. I will b watching Phaedra w/u.)

Phaedra is a nut. A nut that I LOVE to watch! I can't wait to hear what new sayings she comes up with on this show

I wouldn't be interested in watching a spinoff with Phaedra, quite frankly I would think that Kendra would be more interesting to watch than Fake Phaedra who doesn't admit to anything!!!

I love Phaedra, Kandi and Porche and would watch any show that they were involved in. Wouldn't watch nutty Kendra if I was paid!!

I can't wait to see Phaedra 's show. Phaedra is down to earth, smart, beautiful, and always trying to improve her. I love her.
