Donkey Booty News!

Phaedra spills the details on her next workout video.

This Monday was the commemoration of two historical events, the national holiday in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday and the 57th Presidential Inauguration. While both events celebrate the accomplishments of outstanding Americans, it was very poignant that the second inauguration of the first African American President fell on the birthday of African American civil rights leader and fellow Atlantan Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. whose mantra was "all men are created equal." As I sat in my white folding chair listening to
President Obama's address to the nation, I realized how proud I am to be an American where everyone has the opportunity to excel if they are willing to work hard. Whether you agree with President Obama's platform or not you have to agree that it is a blessing to live in a democratic nation where everyone has a voice, choices, and the ability to vote.
 
In this week’s episode, my husband and I made some choices. After meeting with several production companies, we chose to use Watch it Now (WIN) to produce our Phine Body workout video series. After meeting with Will Hobbs and Darren Capik and reviewing their extensive resume, we decided they were the most qualified company. They are one of America's leading fitness video production companies touting sales of over 30 million fitness videos a year. This fact along with their equally impressive client list, which includes notable fitness icons such as Jane Fonda, Billy Blanks, Suzanne Somers, and Tara Stiles, assured me that they were the perfect company for us. Surprisingly, we were able to do two videos for less than the price Kenya quoted us for one. Even with the lower production rate and better expertise, they never asked for a back end percentage or any ownership in our video, but most importantly, the production was seamless. They effortlessly worked out all the details with no drama, which was quite refreshing. Their customer service and staff were equally as professional. We sincerely appreciate everyone who has and is supporting our fitness venture. Volume II of our Phine Body workout series, which is a complete body sculpting regime, will be released in the next two weeks! For more information on our fitness journey and ventures please visit www.Nidafitness.com. While this matter has been challenging because my professionalism and character was questioned, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands a times of challenge and controversy."



Warm regards,

Phaedra

Has Kenya Found Love?

Kenya Moore reveals there may be a new man in her life (and dishes on the Claudia/Kordell situation).

Happy Birthday to Me!

This week has been phenomenal. I took two days to celebrate my birthday. I have to say, my favorite was a couple’s massage and stimulating dinner with new people. To be honest, I feel like my life is taking a turn for the better. I think forgiveness has been key. Not only forgiving others who have wronged me, but also forgiving myself for the wrong I’ve done as well. Through my personal journey my world and heart have expanded and I’m growing every day. With that said, I’m finally able to receive and attract love the way I have always wanted.

Speaking on forgiveness, I was shocked to witness the conversation with Gregg and NeNe. She literally started the fight with Claudia, said the nastiest and vile things to her, and managed to attack me, Cynthia, and Demetria in one felled swoop. After which she contends that, “After you apologize that should be the end of it.” Really, girl? Do you ever watch yourself? How many times have I apologized to NeNe about the infamous couples' night? The “non invitation” to the masquerade ball? I’ve even apologized for all of the comments and reads across two seasons at the Tavern in Duluth! Was that the end of it for NeNe? Sadly, everyone already knows the answer.

BABY TIME

I think Todd and Kandi would have adorable children. Speaking from experience, chances of successful pregnancies for a woman rapidly decline after age 36. It’s brave of them to allow the world to see their journey to having a baby the same way I did. I wonder if Phaedra thinks Kandi has scrambled eggs as well? Point being, when people try to hurt you with statements that hit well below the belt, they often speak to groups of people, not just one person. No one should make fun of someone who experiences challenges having a baby or expanding their family. The great thing is Todd and Kandi are in a loving relationship and can take the journey together. There are many resources available to assist in family planning, and perhaps they can educate people along the way and encourage them to seek other options such as adoption. There are always children in need of a family and parents who are capable of loving and caring for them. It is a process and it will happen. #Godspeed

ROAD TRIP

OK, I hate road trips (especially with girls), but I wanted to support Cynthia and Peter by attending. My choices were few: A. Go and pull my hair out one strand at a time, or B. Get hyped in the car ride along the way to make the time go by faster. I think you know which one prevailed...LOL! I love laughing and being silly, and I’m downright goofy at times. What’s fun about hanging out with Cynthia and Claudia is I can be myself. Yes, it was silly to moon people or hang up on Phaedra, who appeared to just be making excuses about why she couldn’t go. Childish, YES! That was sort of the point. Let me live and laugh. I’m not hurting anyone with laughter.

BAR ONE

Congratulations to Peter and Kordell. Sports One Charlotte was a huge hit! I was polite to Kordell, because I have never had any real issue with him. I wasn’t surprised that Claudia knew him, because she’s a huge sports fan, but they have always just been friendly. I definitely saw some chemistry there. To the critics who think it’s messy to encourage them to date because he was married to a former Housewife, well, that’s just ludicrous. If Claudia was actually friends with his ex, perhaps I would have encouraged her to make sure she didn’t have an issue with it. But they were never friends and still aren’t.

It’s been over 2 years since they divorced, and clearly they have each moved on and are with other people (or sugar daddies). Speaking of sugar, I do not know if the rumors about Kordell are true or not. What I do know is what I see with my own two eyes is an articulate, gracious, and respectful man. Even after the divorce he refrained from trashing his ex. Granted, I’ve never been married to him nor dated him, so I have to rely on my knowledge and interaction with him now, not from someone determined to malign him.

Further, if you meet a man in his 40s who is single, he is likely divorced and someone’s ex. You never know where you find love. Frankly speaking, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Who are we to determine if Claudia and Kordell are better suited for each other? Only they can decide that being two grown consenting adults. My advice to those who always look for negativity in situations is that you always find what you are looking for. However, most times, it is actually what it is meant to be -- a friend wanting happiness for her girl.

DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOUNDATION WINS $20,000

Thanks for all the love and support to my many supporters and team twirl and staff that keep me pushing forward! You support me and are always honest. And thank you for all the congratulations I received from my win on Celebrity Apprentice last week. As project manager I won $20,000 for my charity the Detroit Public Schools Foundation (detroitpsfoundation.org). Unfortunately, during my high moment there are always people trying to rain on my joy. There were a lot of tweets accusing me of not using my own $20,000 when I made the donation to DPSF last year. The fact is, the Trump organization holds the donations until after the show airs to preserve the integrity of the show's outcome. Therefore, DPSF received 2 checks; one from me for $20,000 from my personal bank account and the other from Celebrity Apprentice for $20,000. The real question is: Where is NeNe's $20,000? #IllWait
