What's Phaedra Parks' Biggest Pregnancy Craving?

Think Phaedra Parks is going overboard with junk food and eating in general now that she's pregnant again? Not so much, the star tells PEOPLE magazine.

"Some people subscribe to the myth, 'I'm eating for two people ... Well, not really. The other person is half of a pound," the Real Housewives of Atlanta says in her interview, continuing: "It's obviously a living organism, but something weighing 7 lbs. doesn't really allow you to eat two meals. Doctors say you only need an additional 500 calories."

Phaedra says she doesn't count calories while eating during her pregnancy, because she knows she's eating "organic, healthy food" and that she tries to "eat a lot of small meals per day. If I want something, I try to eat it in moderation if it's something that's not good for me."

As for those pregnancy cravings you always hear people talk about -- ice cream, steak, pickles -- well, Phaedra's sole craving isn't all that wild. "I don't really have any cravings. The only thing I [craved] during my last pregnancy were oranges. I love citrus fruit," she said.

Not mentioned in the interview? Her new nemesis Kenya Moore, who she's been duking it out with this season on RHOA.
