The BAM! Squad

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor wants to work out with Phaedra.

No. 2 - Donkey Business

Nobody works for free in Atlanta. And as Housewives history has shown (i.e. The Tardy for the Party royalties, Heather and Sonja's toaster oven shoot), it's better to make that clear upfront. So when Phaedra's negotiations with Kenya came grinding to a halt and a full on casting session was scheduled at the Bailey Agency without any compensation being put forward, Phaedra faced two none too pleased Housewives.

Cynthia played it cool and just let Phaedra know if she wants to do a casting, she'll have to pay a casting call fee. Kenya on the other hand decided that she was over this donkey business, and very quietly (due to having almost lost her voice to a cold) made her exit. It was dramatic, but I can only wonder how it might have gone down differently if she had her voice. Personally I thought it could have used a "Gone with the Wind fabulous" twirl or two.

Side Note: Big thanks to Cynthia for pointing out the hilarity of two women referring to the "back end" of a donkey booty workout video. Someone had to say it!
