RHOA Phaedra Parks Shows Off Her Atlanta Home...(Pics)

“I am definitely a self-proclaimed Southern belle, as you can tell from my home,” says Phaedra Parks, Entertainment Attorney, "Real" Atlanta Housewife, Wife & mother. (Courtesy of Spark St. Jude/The Sunday Paper)
Phaedra Parks is the no nonsense self-proclaimed Southern Belle on this season's Real Housewives of Atlanta. Though, it's her debut show, we feel like she's been there from the start. Sure, she clashes a tad with the ladies, but she's good with the snappy-come-backs/digs and the (one-on-one) confessionals are a total mess. Needless to say, we love herrr. Now that her whole baby's due date ordeal is out of the way, now we can see what's really goin' on. Now, Apollo.  He seems like a reasonable guy. Even with his prison record, he seems so genuine and approachable. On another note: You think he has a closet to come out of? Hmmm...  Check out he and Phaedra's five bedroom, five bathroom, Atlanta estate below via Wetpaint. Per the article she consulted with an interior designer but did the decorating herself. She's owned the home for 9 years and calls the design, transitional.

Son of Former NBA Star Nick Van Exel Charged with Murdering Close Friend...(Video)

Nickey Maxell Van Exel Charged with Murder:

What a horrible, horrible situation. In case you can't watch the news reel, Nickey Maxell Van Exel, 23, son of Nick, 39, who had an illustrious NBA career (Lakers, Nuggets, Spurs, Mavericks) and is currently an assistant coach for the Atlanta Hawks, turned himself in for the murder of his close friend, Bradley Eyo, 23. Eyo's body was found at Lake Ray Hubbard after being dumped there following his being shot in the upper body at his home in Garland, TX. Eyo's father explains the audacity of Nickey who prayed with the family following the news and vowed to the victim's mother that the killer would be found. Shortly thereafter, Exel turned himself in. Police are investigating what Exel claims to be an accident. They are also searching for his missing (brand new) Air Jordans, Ipad, and other expensive items. Sad. Very, very sad.

Reports state that Willow Smith's label, Spooky Girl, Inc., has entered into agreement with Jay-Z's Roc Nation, to which Willow is signed as an artist, “for exclusive recording and entertainment services of Willow Smith.” On the opposite side of the legal table from Willow is her dad, Will, who is said to be in charge of the whole kit and kaboodle. You may not like 'em but you gotta respect 'em! Soon enough, Willow will be a force to be reckoned with all on her very own. Beleedat!

Disneyland Forced to Shut Down Admission Sales Due To Overcrowding...

Due to over crowding this week, Disneyland had to temporarily halt sales. Disneyland Tweeted: "Disneyland Resort extremely popular today. Disneyland and Disney California Adventure access temporarily limited."
According to news reports, Monday and Tuesday (yesterday, December 28th) was traffic mayhem at Disneyland, a sight that many claim is unusual. Reportedly, by 1p.m. crowds had to be diverted to Disney's California Adventure across the way. And, even that eventually became too packed to continue admissions. People headed that way reported flashing signs on the freeways which said "Disneyland tickets sold out". Yep! The parks had reached 100,000 in capacity, beating their daily Summer month numbers. Fun is in demand, Y'all! Guess everyone wants to escape to the "Happiest Place On Earth"! (And, apparently amusement parks are recession proof!) Consider this your warning in case you were headed to Anaheim between now and New Year's Day. Thank us later!


Huh? Nicole Murphy Blew Thru Her Millions & Is Now Bankrupt?

$15 million gone in just 4 years? That's why reports say Nicole Murphy is b-r-o-k-e. That would be a damn shame, if so. C'mon Son! Live above your means much? Geesh! Word is, Nicole got $15 million up front in her 2006 divorce settlement from Eddie Murphy. She's said to not only have blown through the money, but she's also millions of dollars in debt. Pop the Trunk for more details...

Meagan hit up Trousdale nightclub in West Hollywood last night...
Sean Diddy Combs on his rented yacht in St. Barts said to be obsessing over first week album sales for Last Train to Paris...

SPOTTED: Brad, Angelina and their Brood in Namibia Africa...(Pics)

Hmmm... Wonder what Zahara's thinkin'...
Shiloh and daddy...Awww!
Brad and Angie are continuing their humanitarian efforts with a trip to Namibia Africa where they visited with Dr. Rudie van Vuuren and his family. Meanwhile, Angelina's Tourist co-star Johnny Dep is singing her praises while doing press for the movie:

“She’s a great mommy. She’s very down-to-earth, smart, funny, kind and caring. I was immediately impressed by her. Well, not that I read much in the press about myself or even anyone, but you can't help but know that she and Brad are globally hounded and tracked down. What I was most impressed with Angelina first and foremost was her normality."
Take that, Jennifer Aniston/Chelsea Handler/and the rest of the Haters!
