Real Housewives of Atlanta's Phaedra Parks isn't the first person to admit that "reality TV" isn't so real, but at least she doesn't mind being painted unrealistically.

"At the end of the day, when people watch the show, they realize it's for entertainment," Parks told Atlanta radio host Rodney Ho. "Once [filming] is on the editing table, it might look like something else. That's part of reality TV. Everything on reality TV isn't as real as you think it is. I try to live without regrets."

Understanding that she isn't the only person misrepresented on television, the reality star added, "It doesn't matter who you are. Whatever your character is, is what they make it to be. It's not who I am, but who the producers think I am."

Parks says her falsified persona hasn't seen a downside yet.



"The TV show hasn't changed people's thought about me," the lawyer says. "It makes me recognizable ... [My law firm] gets all the referrals we need and more."
