Phaedra's Spin Tactics

Kenya calls out Phaedra for asking her to work for free.

I’D RATHER HAVE A FRIEND THAN A CHECK

THE FAKE FAYE SPIN

I was Phaedra’s biggest fan and she was my confidant and my RHOA BFF. I truly thought the world of her, which makes this dispute over money more difficult to fathom. In our first meeting Phaedra stated “money was no object.” Yet, this entire falling out is simply over Phaedra’s pure greed, over-inflated ego, and her desire to exploit our friendship. It appears that everybody knows that Phaedra is shady except for me. She will try to sell you anything including a boldface lie with her “spin” tactics i.e. baby gate. We all heard Phaedra tell Kandi that she works for free all the time suggesting I should too. This statement from the woman who told Sheree she doesn’t work for free and gave her money back and who allowed an athlete to out lawyer her in court.

Let me do my job because I do it well. Phaedra, Apollo, and her attorney received an impressive package including a one sheet, budget, marketing materials, potential concepts and alternate taglines, projections and so forth. As a seasoned and successful film producer, I used my pre-existing relationships to vet a distribution deal for the video. I was not obligated to obtain a distribution deal. That is not what a production company does. We are ONLY paid to produce (make) a product (video) and walk away. However, because she was my valued and trusted friend, I wanted to help as much as I possibly could. I thought she would be elated, because distribution is THE most important factor. Ms. Parks claims she is an astute entertainment attorney. If so, how can she in good conscious and a straight face think anyone should bring her a deal that could make her money and not be compensated in any capacity? Evidently, Apollo never agreed with his wife either as they are rarely on the same page. Apparently, business is slow for her, therefore changing careers and focusing on burying dead people and pets, hawking stun guns, booty pads, and workout videos all while being a reality TV personality is now her primary focus.

SITTING ON A POT OF BULL, NOT GOLD

As the little guy all my work is transparent. I’m upfront and honest unlike her shady creepy attorney lingering in the shadows of her office rather than join the meeting to set the facts straight. Honesty was not their paramount concern. I’m a producer, I’m paid to negotiate. I don’t need an attorney to negotiate my deals. I direct them on what to do. We need attorneys to solidify and “paper” the deal once made. The initial budget discussed with the distributor was $100,000 as I was aggressively pushing for them to finance the entire project at no cost to Phaedra. Once I knew that they weren’t interested in financing, I moved forward with a more modest budget according to their budgetary concerns of $35,000. My distribution deal would have paid for MOST if not ALL of the costs to make the video because of the cash advance offered. For that, all I asked is for a mere 10% of her profits from the sales if any.  Reasonable? OF COURSE. This also means if she never sold 1 video I wouldn’t receive any money. Respectively, she wouldn’t have lost any money. Again, she had a sweetheart deal.

The truth is the distributor was less than impressed by her name or her physique and her pot of gold-less donkey butt was the least impressive of all. She bragged about having other offers on the table yet, she distributed herself online to Amazon.com to abysmal sales using her own money. The truth is, no one wanted her video because they did not believe in her or her gimmicky video. I softened the blows in order to be positive, because I believed she was my friend and didn’t feel a need to hurt her feelings. I’D RATHER HAVE A TRUE FRIEND THAN A CHECK

To add insult to injury Phaedra said she’s never heard of any of my movies. I’m very proud of the work I’ve accomplished. I’m a multi hyphenate who has produced over 6 films with production budgets that usually range from $1-3M. They may not be movies with huge “A” list talent but they are profitable movies that have been nominated for several awards in the film industry. I LOVE what I do and would not want to do anything else. I know my worth and what I bring to the table. Phaedra refused to recognize this and treated me like a disposable diaper. I was so hurt I wanted to walk away because I’d rather have a friend than a check, however, with friends like Phaedra, who needs enemies?

GONE WITH THE WIND FABULOUS NEW SINGLE!

On a positive note, I’ve been on a huge high this week! I released my first single and it debuted at #33 on iTunes! The song is a song of empowerment. #GWTWF is an anthem for anyone gay, straight, black, white, young, old, rich or poor, man or woman… who will never listen to anyone trying to put us down. We face people who bully us, call us unspeakable names, harass, degrade, criticize, and hate on us on a daily basis. With all the negativism, it’s easy to believe them. But we know who we are. We are strong and beautiful and Gone With The Wind Fabulous! That’s why I wrote the song. It’s an answer to the ones who try to destroy us.

Has Kenya Found Love?

Kenya Moore reveals there may be a new man in her life (and dishes on the Claudia/Kordell situation).

Happy Birthday to Me!

This week has been phenomenal. I took two days to celebrate my birthday. I have to say, my favorite was a couple’s massage and stimulating dinner with new people. To be honest, I feel like my life is taking a turn for the better. I think forgiveness has been key. Not only forgiving others who have wronged me, but also forgiving myself for the wrong I’ve done as well. Through my personal journey my world and heart have expanded and I’m growing every day. With that said, I’m finally able to receive and attract love the way I have always wanted.

Speaking on forgiveness, I was shocked to witness the conversation with Gregg and NeNe. She literally started the fight with Claudia, said the nastiest and vile things to her, and managed to attack me, Cynthia, and Demetria in one felled swoop. After which she contends that, “After you apologize that should be the end of it.” Really, girl? Do you ever watch yourself? How many times have I apologized to NeNe about the infamous couples' night? The “non invitation” to the masquerade ball? I’ve even apologized for all of the comments and reads across two seasons at the Tavern in Duluth! Was that the end of it for NeNe? Sadly, everyone already knows the answer.

BABY TIME

I think Todd and Kandi would have adorable children. Speaking from experience, chances of successful pregnancies for a woman rapidly decline after age 36. It’s brave of them to allow the world to see their journey to having a baby the same way I did. I wonder if Phaedra thinks Kandi has scrambled eggs as well? Point being, when people try to hurt you with statements that hit well below the belt, they often speak to groups of people, not just one person. No one should make fun of someone who experiences challenges having a baby or expanding their family. The great thing is Todd and Kandi are in a loving relationship and can take the journey together. There are many resources available to assist in family planning, and perhaps they can educate people along the way and encourage them to seek other options such as adoption. There are always children in need of a family and parents who are capable of loving and caring for them. It is a process and it will happen. #Godspeed

ROAD TRIP

OK, I hate road trips (especially with girls), but I wanted to support Cynthia and Peter by attending. My choices were few: A. Go and pull my hair out one strand at a time, or B. Get hyped in the car ride along the way to make the time go by faster. I think you know which one prevailed...LOL! I love laughing and being silly, and I’m downright goofy at times. What’s fun about hanging out with Cynthia and Claudia is I can be myself. Yes, it was silly to moon people or hang up on Phaedra, who appeared to just be making excuses about why she couldn’t go. Childish, YES! That was sort of the point. Let me live and laugh. I’m not hurting anyone with laughter.

BAR ONE

Congratulations to Peter and Kordell. Sports One Charlotte was a huge hit! I was polite to Kordell, because I have never had any real issue with him. I wasn’t surprised that Claudia knew him, because she’s a huge sports fan, but they have always just been friendly. I definitely saw some chemistry there. To the critics who think it’s messy to encourage them to date because he was married to a former Housewife, well, that’s just ludicrous. If Claudia was actually friends with his ex, perhaps I would have encouraged her to make sure she didn’t have an issue with it. But they were never friends and still aren’t.

It’s been over 2 years since they divorced, and clearly they have each moved on and are with other people (or sugar daddies). Speaking of sugar, I do not know if the rumors about Kordell are true or not. What I do know is what I see with my own two eyes is an articulate, gracious, and respectful man. Even after the divorce he refrained from trashing his ex. Granted, I’ve never been married to him nor dated him, so I have to rely on my knowledge and interaction with him now, not from someone determined to malign him.

Further, if you meet a man in his 40s who is single, he is likely divorced and someone’s ex. You never know where you find love. Frankly speaking, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Who are we to determine if Claudia and Kordell are better suited for each other? Only they can decide that being two grown consenting adults. My advice to those who always look for negativity in situations is that you always find what you are looking for. However, most times, it is actually what it is meant to be -- a friend wanting happiness for her girl.

DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOUNDATION WINS $20,000

Thanks for all the love and support to my many supporters and team twirl and staff that keep me pushing forward! You support me and are always honest. And thank you for all the congratulations I received from my win on Celebrity Apprentice last week. As project manager I won $20,000 for my charity the Detroit Public Schools Foundation (detroitpsfoundation.org). Unfortunately, during my high moment there are always people trying to rain on my joy. There were a lot of tweets accusing me of not using my own $20,000 when I made the donation to DPSF last year. The fact is, the Trump organization holds the donations until after the show airs to preserve the integrity of the show's outcome. Therefore, DPSF received 2 checks; one from me for $20,000 from my personal bank account and the other from Celebrity Apprentice for $20,000. The real question is: Where is NeNe's $20,000? #IllWait
