'Celebrities At Home' Features Phaedra Parks

Phaedra Parks was clearly enjoying showing off her 4,100 square foot home on "Celebrities at Home" (Tue., 8 p.m. ET on HGTV), but fans on Twitter found themselves somewhat underwhelmed by "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star's pad. Or maybe it was how excited she was about the decorating choices she'd made.

The home just looked so ... ordinary, according to many. Sure, at 22 rooms, it was much bigger than the average American home, but there wasn't that excitement or wow factor that fans of the show have come to expect from celebrity homes.

Instead, Parks spent time overselling her creativity in picking out lamps and shades, as well as designing black curtains for the dining room that drape, but do not close. This one left viewers a little perplexed as well.

What was entertaining no matter what else the show offered was how excited Parks was to show off her decorative abilities and her home. Her enthusiasm was infectious, even if viewers didn't agree with her assessment of the decor.

Check in with more "Celebrities at Home" every Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on HGTV.
