They've got successful careers and are adored by fans, but what things bring joy to our Bravolebrities lives? From fashion and food to music and movies, our stars share their favorite guilty pleasures. This week, Phaedra Parks from the Real Housewives of Atlanta dishes on her favorite desserts, her spa regimen and...chemistry formulas?
My Favorite Food: Red Velvet Cake
My favorite food would be red velvet cake because it’s just so decadent. Cream cheese icing, a few pecans, it’s just delicious. Who couldn’t love that? It’s just amazing.
My Favorite Way to Relax: The Spa
I treat myself to a manicure/pedicure every week. I get my hair fixed every week. I don’t think that’s a guilty pleasure, I just think that’s upkeep. Every southern belle has to maintain. I think every woman should be getting her nails and her feet done because you have to feel good about yourself so that you can treat others the way that you should be treated. And I think as a mother, you neglect personal care because you don’t take time for yourself. But every mom at the end of the day is a lady and she needs that time to regroup and refresh and reorganize and just have some moments of tranquility.
My Favorite Website: An "Eccentric" Variety
I’m pretty eccentric and I enjoy things that people don’t enjoy. A lot of my colleagues and counterparts love blogs, but I like to look at very odd things on websites, like embalming techniques and chemistry formulas. I’m sort of a nerd. I really like to learn things and so I’m constantly saying, 'Wow, how does this work? Can I look this up?' And I like to learn about diseases. I consider myself an apothecary, so I love to tell people about medicines, even though I’m not a doctor. I like to diagnose people’s illnesses and talk about home remedies. Everybody else is looking at blogs; I’m looking up recipes for vitamins.
