The past few weeks have been exciting but extremely busy. I have been shooting my new show "Rich People's Problems," preparing for the delivery of our bundle of joy, and launching my new Phaedra Sparks stun gun line all while studying for final exams. It is great to have the opportunity to work and share my creativity.
Following the first part of the reunion, I received numerous emails and calls concerning the physical threat Kenya made towards me. I really appreciate everyone’s concerns. However, as we have all seen this season, being inappropriate is the norm for Kenya, but I was even taken aback that she would actually threaten to physically strike an eight month pregnant woman. While violence is never acceptable under any circumstance, to even think about hitting a pregnant woman is horrifically despicable and evidences anything but sanity. Even though she attempted to portray my supporters in a less than favorable light, please know that I am grateful for your support and I think that you are the best!
During the reunion and prior episodes, Kenya has commented that I am "fat" and should not be doing a workout video, which is laughable. However, in a society where young girls and women struggle with body image issues that lead to deadly illnesses such as bulimia and anorexia, it is very irresponsible for a person whose entire body shape is due to plastic surgery to criticize any woman who is natural. Furthermore, it is fraud for her to suggest that she achieved her physique through exercise rather than plastic surgery intervention. If she were being honest, she would just give a referral to her plastic surgeons, rather than make a workout DVD. Many of you didn't know I was pregnant when we shot our DVD. Nonetheless, my husband and I made our DVD for people much like ourselves who work regular jobs, are parents, and want to work out rather than opt to have plastic surgery. Everybody knows everyone isn't tall; everyone isn't skinny; and everyone isn't voluptuous, but every body is beautiful and deserves to be celebrated. Our DVD strives to help people be comfortable in their own skin while enjoying an effective workout.
