Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta instantly became familiar with Phaedra Parks' business smarts, but her maternal side? That took some time.
When baby Ayden finally met his mama, the first thing to burst out of Phaedra's mouth was "Oh, gross!" True, her little man wasn't exactly cleaned up yet, but viewers probably expected more of a teary-eyed bonding moment.
"I was in labor for three days," the Atlanta Housewife tells TV Guide to set the record straight. "For three days I was unable to eat. Then I started having back labor, where you have lots of pain in the spinal area, so I had an epidural but they had to give me morphine too so I could tolerate all the pain. A lot of things, I don't remember. When I saw it on TV, I was like, 'Wow.' My mom said I was saying, 'I need to go jogging, I need to go exercise' — I mean, just crazy stuff. I honestly don't remember much!"
Despite all the Housewives hoopla surrounding when exactly Ayden was conceived, the first-time mommy puts it this way, "My baby is not a surprise baby. I wanted to be a mom, me and my husband wanted to have children. You know, unless it's on CNN you can't count everything you see as the truth."
And as for those, um interesting, preggers photos with pickles, Phaedra calls them "nice" but decided to purchase other photos from the same shoot – not seen on TV.

Phadrea gives educated fool a new meaning. Her comments about her baby were just apolling and donkey butt what the hell is this what atlanta attorneys concern themselves with. I think Phadrea should show here credentials and prove she is actually an attorney and has more than an online degree. Some of the things she saids and does I'm embarrased for her. Maybe she's just young and dumb. Kim get a clue.. You have no business tryin to be a singer you dont take it ceriously. You have to work at anything you do. Especially when you can't sing to begin with. How can you expect to be takin seriously. When you do all the wrongs and none of the rights. Kandi is Kim just a joke to you. She seems to be a joke to herself and to much of the people who watch the show, and even some of the cast members. You should not waste your time with someone who makes so light of your profession. NeNe keep your head up girl, You have the spirt of a fighter and your a good soul who maybe down for a brief minute but will always come back to bigger an better things.
I think Phaedra said what most mothers want to say when they see a baby covered with blood. "Oh gross" didn't mean her baby was gross just all the stuff he was covered with. Get real people!! Her baby is beautiful. They should have cleaned him up a little more before showing her since it was being recorded for all the world to see. She is teaching us how "southern women" are suppose to be: Sip & See, canning fruit, cooking, over the top baby shower and not judging people by alleged prior acts. Why were these women so concerned about when her baby was due if they weren't playing on babysitting or supporting the baby. Some of those women on the show are giving us Atlanta women a bad name BUT Phaedra isn't one of them. Can you say KIM..Kim.. Kim She really needs to worry about the example she is setting for her girls. Married men, drinking, smoking and now a baby on the way and she isn't married unlike Phaedra and Apollo. Ummm. career, fine husband & baby.. jealous much ladies!!
MY GRANDMA AND I LOVE TO WATCH UR SHOW EVERYTIME IT COMES ON. WE LOVE KANDI ,KIM SONG. WE LOVE ALL OF YALL.
P.S. YOU GIRLS LIKE ME R COOL
If that was the only dumb thing she's said, maybe I would fall for it. For someone that claims to be "smart" she makes some really stupid statements. . . "canned food", ladyfingers, just to name a few. . .
