Phaedra Parks Peeks into her Future, and her Snooki-esque Past

Relax, the Atlanta 'Wife wasn't fist pumping on the Jersey Shore.


Hold the phone — did Snooki's inspiration for the poof come from none other than fellow pickle-lover Phaedra Parks? "I'm the original Snooki!" the Real Housewives of Atlanta fan boasts to RadarOnline, giving them an exclusive look at the Jersey Shore-worthy bump she was rocking in high school. She even explained the, err, hair raising process. "You tease it at the top, pump it up and just let it hang. You need lots of volume."

Before Phaedra got all rah-rah riled up in court, the entertainment lawyer waved her pom-poms for Clarke Central High School. "I always loved to cheer," P.P. says. "I think it's definitely a sport."

Nowadays the self-proclaimed Southern Belle is taking her passion and enthusiasm in a new direction by penning a book about manners. (Did we just hear the Countess gasp?) "It's a modern day twist on etiquette and being a lady," Phaedra explains to RadarOnline. "It's high time that women start enjoying being ladies again. People have moved away from that."

And she's not stopping there. Also hiding in her Gucci diaper bag are plans to pitch three reality shows. "The first show is a docudrama and will take a group of women and empower them," Phaedra spills. "The second show is more of a documentary that deals with serious issues of dating. And the third show is more fun and lighthearted focusing on alternative lifestyles."

Who rocks the poof better: Snooks or Phaedra? Start a Tweet Battle, and make your case.
