Meanwhile, she’s getting some copy cat action and shade thrown at her from housewives from other series.
Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Melissa Gorga announced on Twitter in January plans for her and hubby Joe Gorga to release an exercise DVD. Earlier, her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice said she would produce a work out DVD to coincide with her controversial cookbook. Though that all appears to perhaps be some inter-series rivalry there between those two.
Also, Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Tamra Barney recently told the site Lalate that she questioned whether Phaedra and her RHOA co-star Kenya Moore were qualified to give fitness advice. Barney owns CUT Fitness OC, hired certified trainers and is training to become one too. Her husband Eddie Judge is a certified trainer.
“I cannot understand how someone can [give advice as a personal trainer and just work with one],” Barney told the site. “I am going to be certified in Body Bump. Eddie has been certified for years, all my trainers are certified.”
She also insinuated that the women on the OC cast support each other’s business ventures more so than on the Atlanta franchise.
“I think it is annoying when someone is doing something you are doing,” Barney said of the Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks feud where after a business relationship broke down, Moore announced plans to make a rival video to Parks’.
We don’t recall Parks or Moore giving advice to castmates on the show and it appears Parks is a cast member to her video and her husband, the certified trainer is doing the instructions on the video. But something tell us Barney was probably spoon-fed dagger questions purposefully to fuel some negative talk.
Send us a copy of the DVD to review when it’s done, Phae! Please and Thank you!

I really liked the portion of the video starting around 39:00 when she explains why she joined the show: to portray positive educational aspect of Atlanta. Bravo, Phaedra, Bravo!
the last episode of her reality TV show, she and fellow cast mate had a
spat over competing videos. After a deal fell through for Former Miss
USA Kenya Moore to produce Parks and Nida’s workout DVD, Moore revealed plans to produce her own work out DVD she called Stallion booty.
haven’t seen it, but there’s enough room for everyone,” she said of her rival Moore’s DVD, which is apparently already released. “Imitation is the
sincerest form of flattery.”
Congratulations to Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks who is pregnant with her second child with husband Apollo Nida.
Parks revealed her quite pregnant belly in a sexy mesh and fabric black one piece bathing suit with a peek-boo eyelet while vacationing on a beach in the Bahamas this holiday season. She is there with family and friends. Parks, an Atlanta-based entertainment attorney and rising funeral home purveyor married Nida in 2009. She gave birth to their first child, son Ayden in 2010.
Phaedra Parks was caught in a trap, and she couldn’t go back as hard as she tried. Those suspicious minds of The Real Housewives of Atlanta were right, and tonight the truth about Phaedra’s baby’s due date was revealed right before he was born — at 40 WEEKS.
She wasn’t five or six months along with the world’s most advanced baby, like she tried to convince everyone she was. No, her doctor revealed she was full-term, just like anyone with any knowledge of pregnancy at all (at ALL!) knew all along.
Still she kept trying to front, saying perhaps it was a difference of opinion.
“It’s not a theory,” the doctor corrected her.

“It took me 41 years to have this baby,” Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi told PEOPLE magazine when they asked if she would be overprotective of her first child ever. “I’m probably going to be crazy protective.”
Since it was a long time coming, that might explain the over-the-top and very elaborate Laguna Beach baby shower she and her partner Slade Smiley had back in May to celebrate the baby girl who is due to arrive this July 11 and who the couple have decided to name Skylar
[She had an elaborate Gender Reveal party too]
The event which took place at a lux venue overlooking the beach, was attended by several current and former Bravolebrities including Real Housewives of Dallas star D’Andra Simmons, Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay, Phaedra Parks (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Patti Stanger (The Millionaire Matchmaker) and Rossi’s former RHOC costars Lizzie Rovsek and Peggy Tanous.
Guests enjoyed a whiskey bar from Distillery 291, cigars from Master Roller Cigars , with Kiss FM’s DJ Chunk on the 1’s and 2s and a Sub Zero Ice Cream booth provided custom frozen desserts — including Skylar’s Shower Cake (cake-batter ice cream with cookie dough and rainbow sprinkles), Rossi’s “Rocking” Road (chocolate ice cream with marshmallows and almond slices), Slade’s “Sleepy” Salted Caramel (salted-caramel ice cream with pretzels) and Family Fruity Fusion (raspberry and marshmallow ice cream with mixed berries).
Rossi and Smiley even had a romantic, smoke-filled slow dance to “I Get To Love You” by Ruelle.
Rossi wore a white empire-waist plunging neckline lace gown by Project Runway designer Michael Costello with flowing sleeves, paired with diamond teardrop earrings, flats and a necklace that spelled her daughter’s name.
From PEOPLE about the food:
There was plenty. Guests nibbled on meat, cheeses and fruit on an epic charcuterie spread by Samira Weddings and Events, and enjoyed other appetizers off a 16-foot-long grazing table of tasty bites by Lucky Board LA. A huge ice tower held shrimp, clams, oysters and other seafood.
There was a huge variety of desserts, too — the centerpiece of which was a six-tier wedding-style cake in shades of pale pink and white, with a gold-detailed crown on top.
Cupcakes were topped with intricate designs, like baby carriages and white flowing dresses. Sugar cookies came in a variety of shapes, such as baby onesies (hanging on hangers) and sleeping babies. Towers of chocolate strawberries and macarons from Regal Delights offered other edible treats.

- Ashley Darby from RHOP looked pregnant and having just peeped her Instagram, it looks true.

- Most got along.
- Danielle Staub manipulated the media to get a last minute pity invite and showed up with a gift and glammed out…allegedly
