Throughout the season, I have done things that some people considered bizarre, over-the-top, and downright "ReDICKulous." Just as our beloved Oprah has her favorite things, so do I; one of them being my love of round, full buttocks that I fondly refer to as the "donkey booty." As a self-proclaimed Ph.D in donkology, I dedicate this rant to all things donklicious.
In my journey as a distinguished donkologist this season, some people have questioned whether or not I have unnatural desires for women while others have enjoyed my donkey booty rhetoric and noted that they have a donkey stretching their 2% lycra jeans to the point of no return. My reason for celebrating the voluminous bottom is neither sexual nor deviant. Since my early childhood, people have always commented on my more than ample bottom. From the overused, "Can we get some fries with that shake," to, "Oh My God Becky!" from Sir Mix Alot's big booty anthem Baby Got Back, I have heard it all.
Phaedra, much of the hoopla about donkey butts is nothing but propoganda. I really like your personality and like how u love Apollo so much. If he is worth the salt in his bread, he will never look at A KEnya or any other woman. If he does, then u would be wise to kick him to the curb, not try to kick "her" I expect more from u than than a common surrender to the greene eyed monster. I have an old flat bootie. I don't expect to market it as the desired thing just because it is mine. I once no twice had someone tell me I had the nicest looking butt they ever saw. Glory Days" lol....To me rear-ends like yours,Kandi's and Jennifer Lopez are something to be tamed not touted and flouted. THis does not mean I dislike any of u. I just don't like to look at your rear-end. I don't want to feel like I could run a sudan service from the rear. Love ya
such positive attitude, always quick to diffuse the issues and that is so beautiful....ur hubby is so fine and compliment you so well, cute baby boy too... u go girl, classy and sassy
luv u girl and yur positive attitude. keep it real like u do and keep yur family together and not let anything come between u and hubby...so proud to c truly black classy lady that is a professional and don't feel like she has to fight and argue all the time but can get her point across. u r a true role model.
phaedra, girl you are my favorite, ATL HOUSEWIVES you have a beautiful family and you have so much love ,joy,you are a true friend .
looking forward to tonights first view of the new season. Will we be seeing all the babies? Please, no fights on the opening show.
Phaedra in one of the interviews, you stated that you were going to make a work out video. Is it true?
I'm sad this season is over! I really enjoyed watching you.I hope your future business ventures go well and we see you and your family back next season.
You are by far my favorite! Thanks for showing that a smart girl can be funny, feminine, pretty and confident. So, thanks for being funny and real. Not to mention showing all of us that career changes are not only possible, but are fulfilling, especially when connected to a passion! PS: I think I'm going to use your phrase, "six packs are for colas, not for abs!"
Phaedra, Phaedra, Phaedra!
Best recognize that you are the STAR of this show! Love your wit, sense of humour and the eloquently way you carry yourself. Your husband and baby Aiden should be proud to have a beautiful wife and mother like yourself.
Any time you are in Toronto, Canada- let a sista know so I can meet you boo!
your dearest Canadian fan!
Phaedra, thanks for the positive story but can you for once talk about the show. You confuse me, you're one way on TV and another way in your blogs. You really are a true defense attorney.
You are a hoot! Love you! Although RH Atlanta is not my 1st or 2nd favorite housewives show, I do believe YOU ARE MY FAVORITE HOUSE WIFE! You are SMART, hard working, pretty, good mother, good wife, caring and FUNNY! Your husband is nice and good looking, your son is adorable. You are an inspiration to women, thank you for being you.
I love you Phaedra, your inner beauty shines through, you delicious outer beauty. You are classy, whilst open minded and kind hearted. I am not a christian, though what you display are what I call real christian values, without the judgment and insecurities of some. If only more people were as accepting as you. I love to watch you every week, as you display a live in the moment, appreciate what you have attitude I LOVE xx cant wait to watch you next season x
I just love you!!!!! A Southern Belle with a great since of humor. Refreshing from all the other drama that these ladies seem to have together.
BRAVO!! BRAVO!! YOU ROCK!!! NONE OF US ARE PERFECT BUT WE CAN DEFINITELY CELEBRATE OURSELVES TO BEING MORE BETTER, MORE HEALTHY, AND MORE DONKALICIOUS!!!
SO MANY OF US ARE CRITICIZED FOR OUR "DONKY BOOTY HERITAGE" IT IS NICE TO SEE IT CELEBRATED FOR ONCE!!
GO PHAEDRA KEEP BEING YOU!! BEAUTIFUL!!
I love you. I just love you. Always gracious, ever a lady - you're the reason my mother and I watch week after week.
Phaedra when you first arrived on the scene, you worked every part of my nerves but over time you have slowly inched past NeNe into my "favorites". You have a knack for "getting it in" with such class at times and then simply speak your mind when you need to.
I love you darling. I think you are smart and funny and simply hilarious on the show. HOWEVER, you are the worst blogger in the houswives franchise. Will you please restrict your comments to issues realted directly to what is presented on the show? You are not a professor and we are not your students. We want your perspective on the events that take place on the show! Not your personal philosophies on life. We go to Oprah for that. Knock it off!
Very well said. Your insight is always evident in your blogs. Thank you for an opportunity to see Africa, nicely done.
I love you Phaedra! You're my favorite housewife from all the shows, and you're not about petty drama. Oh, and you're HILARIOUS.
I have watched most episodes of the show and read many of the blogs but this is the first time I have posted a comment. I wanted you to know that you are my favorite of the Atlanta housewives. I think you are absolutely hilarious! You have such a sweetness and kindness about you while having a quirky, silly side, too. It is wonderful to see someone who is beautiful and educated and isn't afraid to show the world a side that is "bizarre" or "over-the-top". You have a wonderful message for viewers and you make the show fun!
Phaedra, I think you are amazing and wise beyond your years. In your first season, I was a little concerned about you but you have redeemed yourself. Continue to do what you do and leave the drama alone. BTW, I had the pleasure of meeting you at the NBMBAA Conference in Atlanta last year!
Love, love, love you Mrs. Phaedra Parks! Appreciate your honesty. I too am the same way with my girl friends, complimenting them when 'the girls are looking great' or when that dress is hugging in all the right places. We need more women like us that celebrate our beauty in whatever shape or form it comes in.
I kind of enjoyed you this season but there were some things that I wish you would pay more attention to. The friendship with Kim is not maybe something you would want to continue. She and her husband are prejudice and I don't know why you ladies can't see it. Sheree is another problem. She has so many faces that I don't know how anyone could stay in the room with her. but I didn't like how you and the other ladies kept saying that Cynthia is all of Nene's butt and kept talking about her when you all were doing the same with Kim. Nene really didn't say anything about you ladies this season except to respond to attacks.
Phaedra, Just had to come here to tell you how fond I am of you. You are such a normal, moral, good, kind person. You are always above the drama, and just a great person! I thought the dedication was so nice, and I wished I was invited to Ayden's birthday party! :) Don't let the others' drama come into your world, or affect you and "the smalls". You are way above it, way better than it and you know it! :) Love ya, girl!
Really love and appreciate you, Phaedra. God speed and much success to you and your family. Keep being that person that appreciates everyone for who they are and not getting wrapped up in criticizing those that surround you!
Luv u girl! But im not sure how it was/or is wher ur from, but where Im from, most black women are very proud of their big boodunka-dunks! I sure love mine!! And mines is bigger than yours. Lol!! Like you, I have respect for myself by not dressing trampy or trashy. But I've been blessed with a small waist and a big booty and it's hard to hide it with anything that i wear. I get alot of attention due to my curvacious body. My man loves to watch me as I walk away!! Lol!! When i exercise, I go to great lengths just to only tone and not lose my shape. Like they say in the movie Barbershop - "There's a difference between a woman with a big a-- , and a big a-- woman!! Lol!! For those that got it, flaunt it!! MmmmHmmmm!! :) See you next season!!
GREAT BLOG! THANK YOU PHAEDRA! WOMEN DO TEAR EACH OTHER APART INSTEAD OF EMBRACING AND LIFTING AND IT WOULD BE SOO WONDERFUL IF WE WEREN'T SO JUDGMENTAL OF ON ANOTHER. Keep being the sweet person you are and I Love watching what you're going to do next! It's all really fun. Have a great vacation and see you next season. Love to the beautiful family and blessings in your future works. peace and joy
'After' the first season you were on you really became my favorite Real Housewife of the ATL.. after this blog, you are my favorite housewive... That was every inspiring as I believe I fell into that 1% sadly even before I was teen until my early 20's. You should learn to love your body and just enjoy life instead of sweeting the small things that you can't always change:) Thanks!!
Awwwww Phadge! You are too cute. You didn't have to explain, I like seeing you have fun with it, and it's refreshing for a woman to compliment another woman without idiots reading any other meaning into it! Don't let ANYBODY change you or try to TELL you how or how not to act! I adore you just the way you are! Looking forward to seeing you next season! Take care Sweetie!
Housewives of Atlanta is the most vulgar show on tv. None of you are ladies and you all act like ignorant, low class fools most of the time.
I think it's ironic that you spent the whole blog talking about women and their body images and then you close with only a dog wants a bone. There are plenty of women who are naturally skinny, so thanks for offended them. Maybe only a donkey wants a donkey booty. Now that wasn't nice what I just said, but it's the exact same thing you just said with your dog comment.
I don't care what you have done in you past. But is in any truth to what this woman is coming out saying about you being down with the car titles and stealing cars. Just asking, just being messy, but would like to know.
Phedra you're amazing!!!! I love how lady like you sound while talking about Donkey Booty's!!! best for you and your family!!!
So you put other people down to build yourself up. Your points of loving your body happens to be good, yet you turn around and criticize people who may be thinner or have firm abs because they work for them. That is really hypocritical and so not cool.
Phaedra, you are the wittiest cast member of Atlanta Housewives and the funniest. I like Kandi too. Nene is the dumbest and so as Marlo. Why do I even mention Marlo. I don't want to see her on the next season.
OMG wtf are you talking about.
Can we ever get a blog where you talk about the actual episode?
What does "unnatural desires" mean...very telling.
You are priceless!! Thank you for your impartial, but creative blogs this whole season! You are definitely one of a kind! I have enjoyed watching you this season. You make me laugh!
Phaedra, you are the BEST of the housewives!!! You are classy, intellgent, and too funny!!!! You have your own personality which is what is missing from reality TV, everyone wants to fight with one another to be the center of attention, you however, have become the center of attention without "selling your soul"!!You are really a role model woman...You and Ne-Ne are my favorite (as opposite as you all are) But I just think you are a stand out woman and we need more like you! and Ne_Ne has really matured over the seasons and used RHOA as a great platform to make her career!!
Keep up the great work and good luck with all your funeral endeavors!!
