RHOA briefs: Phaedra Parks defends Drama, kids parody, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss

By RODNEY HO/, originally filed Wednesday, August 3, 2016

Phaedra Parks said Drama's arrest over an alleged "bomb" threat was all a big misunderstanding cloaked in racial profiling.

Rapper Drama - real name Terence Cook - was arrested after he entered the wrong office and someone heard him say he was going to bomb the place. She told TMZ that he was coming by to give her his new CD, which he called "the bomb." It was so hot, he said, the CD was "going to blow up." Someone misconstrued what he said and called the cops.

He is being held in prison without bail for allegedly making terroristic threats. Parks is finding him a criminal lawyer, the TMZ story said.

Minus the cops and arrest, this sounds like a really stupid episode of "Three's Company." (And yes, I just dated myself with that reference!)

Mashable, with help from Bravo, hired some child actors to re-enact a famous scene from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" where Kenya Moore twirls away from a dispute saying "Gone With the Wind Fabulous."

The moment happened early after Kenya's arrival on the show season 5 in 2012. Kenya later turned that phrase into a song.

Apparently, there will be more re-enactments to come.

Kenya, trying to stay with her boyfriend Matt Jordan, convinced him to come over and talk it out. But she forgot to tell him "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cameras were there. He posted his displeasure on Instagram before deleting it.

This is the same woman who convinced an ex Walter Jackson to "play" her boyfriend season five.
