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

Phaedra: You Don't Often Come Across Hair Burglary

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Derek J's unusual case and how she won "most eccentric" in high school.

Bravotv.com: Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions.

Bravotv.com: Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to "most eccentric," I know I'd rather be a little weird than all boring -- that's just me!
