RHOA’s Phaedra Parks reunion comments: Meanest reality TV attack on older single women who want to have a baby (VIDEO)

Just when I thought we had hit rock bottom with catty fighting women insulting and offending other women who are trying to conceive, we go and discover a new floor below.
A couple weeks ago, during the finale of the VH1 show Basketball Wives: LA one cast member told off another member who is a cancer survivor and  is struggling while trying to conceive to go “take her medicine” and injections to try and make a baby, boasting how she already had 3 healthy ones. 
Last night, on part three of the Real Housewives of Atlanta finale, cast member and past 2x Bellyitch Bumpwatch mom to two, Phaedra Parks sunk quite low to insult her arch nemesis Kenya Moore
In a shade-filled “read” on the former Miss USA, Parks attacked the fact that Moore was exploring sperm banks in search of an appropriate anonymous donor for a child she hoped to conceive and raise on her own. Moore had previously said that she did not want to conceive a child out of wedlock but at her advanced age of over 40, she noticed her options were wearing thin and decided to consider that route.
So to get back at Moore for her own history of inappropriate contact and communication with Parks’ husband Apollo Nida, the recent Mortuary school graduate and law firm owner went after Moore’s Trying to Conceive (TTC) plans, stating during the show last night:

“She needs a story line so she keeps re-bringing it up. This happened in 2012. It’s 2014 and she’s still trying to use it because she has nothing else going on. And while she’s sitting around, running around talking about my husband, the father to my children, and she spends her weekends peddling thru sperm banks, looking through catalogs to try to find a donor. Honey, you don’t know if your baby daddy will be an axe murderer or a child molester. But what you will know is that he needed $10 to get himself a medium-sized pizza so he ejaculated in a cup so you can have a kid. Check that.”

A few thoughts come to mind.
1. While Phae-Phae is the queen of reading, this particular one sounded too structured, polished and well -rehearsed. At one point, Apollo pulled out his mobile phone after accusing Moore of texting him again a week ago (an accusation Moore denied immediately). But he could have gotten out his phone to feign an opportunity to pull up the script so Phaedra could refresh her memory. She can be seen on camera twisting her neck slightly and taking a peek at his phone. hmmmmm…..
2. This is not the first time the self-described Christian woman went below the belt to attack fertility struggles. In a past episode this season, she called Moore’s reproductive system “scrambled eggs.” That was a pretty dirty thing to say considering all the women with fertility issues who watch her show and support her brand.
3. While this round, Parks wasn’t a directly attacking another woman’s fertility  struggles, she did make an indirect jab at the thousands of women who have delayed having a baby because of their career and/or who have been struggling to meet “The One” while waiting to marry and have a baby. Some of those women have and are considering an anonymous sperm donor because they desperately want a baby. Way to go to make them feel horrible about their predicament and options, Phaedra Parks.
4. The other sad part to me personally, was all the women, who do not like Moore’s antics and behavior on the show, who were applauding and cheering it on in social media.  While cheering on Moore being put in her place and silenced, they are also complicitly  putting down all those women out there in Moore’s  shoes  — some including possible friends, family members and co-workers.

Not cool.

The full episode is below and Phaedra’s spiel starts around the 39:00 mark.

RHOA’s Kenya Moore plans in vitro baby via sperm donor “Fashion Queen’s” Miss Lawrence?

This year, expect to see a new baby from one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta  cast members. No not soon to be newlywed Kandi Burruss.  The show resident Gone with the Wind Fabulous diva, Kenya Moore.


The former Miss USA told Life and Style magazine recently that she is preparing to undergo in vitro fertilization.
“I plan on having a baby next year,” the exercise DVD producer said last December. “Within the next six months, I hope to be pregnant.”
The gorgeous cast member, who is the nemesis to past Bellyitch Bumpwatch mom Phaedra Parks, added that she may ask her hairstylist friend Miss Lawrence (who stars in BravoTV’s Fashion Queens)  or a mystery man she is seeing to donate the sperm.
She could always do the anonymous donor route as Monica Cruz did last year. 

Last year,the  model and dancer, who is also the sister to actress Penelope Cruz, got pregnant via in vitro fertilization and an anon donor as well.

” To become pregnant, I turned to artificial insemination… I want to tell also so I can have the opportunity to show my thanks to all those anonymous men that give many women like me, the dream of their lives,” she explained to Spanish magazine Pais in January of her decision to come clean about her pregnancy in the press.

 The gorgeous 36-year old welcomed a daughter on May 14, a few months before sister Penelope welcomed her daughter on July 22 with her husband Javier Bardem.





Good Luck, Kenya! Either way, it will be a beautiful baby!
