When: Sat., May 3, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2014
Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta wasn’t in the physical fight that went down recently during a filming of the reality TV show, but that hasn’t stopped her from chiming in on the matter. The sassy star, who frequently clashes with Kenya Moore (call her an instigator or a victim), believes Porsha Williams was provoked, though she doesn’t stand by her method of resolution (that is, assault, in case you missed the big moment). Taking time away from the show, Parks visits Charlotte as a special keynote speaker for the annual For Sisters Only. The event, presented by V 101.9 and Power 98, features activities geared toward motivating women — of course, that doesn’t mean that men can’t show up to show Parks some love, too. There will also be live music, fashion shows, author appearances, spoken word, seminars, vendors and exhibitors. For more information, search “2014 For Sisters Only” on www.eventbrite.com.
