Phaedra Parks Announces Modeling Contract, Talks G-Strings and Burying Dead People!

Posted on Nov 22 2017 - 5:16pm by Avigail

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks has a new job to add to her broad resume — model!

On Tuesday, the 5-foot-1 attorney announced she signed with Wilhelmina modeling agency. 

“I think I’m the face of “yes you can.” I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model.” Parks tol d US Weekly. “When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?” A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

In regards to her representing an under-served market.

I feel great about being different, in light of what’s going on now, politically … I think women need to be empowered to stand in their truth, to be different, dare to be diverse and stand up in times of controversy. I’m excited for that part.”

What her dream campaign would consist of.

Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.”

On showing skin and getting naked for the camera?

I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national T.V.  I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”

Did her recent divorce from Apollo Nida drive the former RHOA star to get a revenge body?

Well, a lot of things happened in my personal life. Going through everything was so much stress, but then when it finished it was just effortless. I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy.”

Everyone knows that in addition to being an attorney, Phaedra is also a mortician — but is she still burying folks? 

Being a mortician is a passion of mine and everything I’m passionate about I just dive right in. This is our peak season actually, the peak season from deaths is from Halloween to around Valentine’s Day, so we’re very busy — people are going to glory pretty regularly. I’m directing a few funerals this weekend. I know it’s morbid, but I love being the final party planner.”

Phaedra Parks’ modeling career is up for debate — can she cut it as a professional model? Sound off in the comments!

    I don’t know why any agency would sign her. Unless this is another lie ala dating #bae Shemar Moore. All I know is any brand that would hire her would lose credibility overnight. She is toxic.

    • Marsbars09

      Agreed. Fake is bad for business.

  • MAC

    I can’t with her mouth gaping open in every shot… Bitch please… nobody is interested in your thirsty back stabbing self. Bye!

    • iverge

      That mouth gaping reminds me of those tacky cheap plastic sex dolls.

      • MAC

        LOL! For REAL!!!

    • Aussie_Tea

      She’s try to do the Trya Banks ‘fierce’ look! Or is it her version of ‘Blue Steel’?

      • RealitytvJunkie

        It’s all Photoshop and lies.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          I got news for you… all of the pics you see in magazines are photoshopped to the hilt. Even the ones of top models & the most beautiful celebs.
          Happy Thanksgiving.

      • SassyMcAsspants

        It’s definitely not Magum. My hair’s not blowing back.

        • Aussie_Tea

          LOL!! No – definitely not Magnum!! She could never pull that off…

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Aussie! Fake looks absolutely ridiculous with her sexy poses.

        • Aussie_Tea

          Happy Thanksgiving Mars! Hope you had a lovely one… Yes she sure does!! I don’t even know where to begin with what’s wrong with these photos!! 😀

    • Marsbars09

      LOL!

  • Misha

    I don’t believe this at all!

  • pixntrix

    Someone please make this nasty b*tch go away.

  • Contessa Bel Raven

    If this is true I say go for it Phaedra! I know I’m in the minority but I believe Phaedra was told the rumour about Kandi and she was made the scapegoat. She also never came out and said she was dating Shemar. Others ran with that story. I read her post and I never thought she was saying she was dating him. As I said I know I am in the minority but I go by my gut. JMO, so I don’t need to hear how wrong I am. Let’s just agree to disagree on our opinions and keep it moving. Not saying you shouldn’t respond with why you believe I’m wrong but let’s refrain for personal attacks k? I hate having to type that but I’ve been attacked here and seen others attacked for having a different opinion. Didn’t use to be that way but I am saddened to see that has changed.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Believe it or not, more ppl agree with you than not.
      I also believe that while Phaedra lied, she was used as the scapegoat.
      Also, I saw her post & thought it was meant to be a mime but like you said, ppl automatically assumed she was claiming to be dating Shemar Moore.
      With all of that being said, I hope this is true about being a signed model because this will make heads explode all over the ATL & SM.

      • Contessa Bel Raven

        That it will lol

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Oh to only be a fly on the wall when the other broads heard this news…. LMAO!!
          Happy Thanksgiving, Contessa.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Excuse me while I pick myself up from the floor after laughing uncontrollably. This must be another scheme Todd set up. Hahaha! Phaedra girl just stop.

    • Marsbars09

      Why would Todd plan a scheme for Fake?

  • Chickpea16

    These are not recent photos of Phaedra.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      IKR. But this lying heffer claims they are and expects us to believe it.

      • Chickpea16

        She photoshopped that photo with Shemar. Trying to draw attention any way she can.

  • Bryan

    lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    BAHAHAHA!! This is the funniest thing I have read all year.

  • MissScarletwithaRevolver

    Oh. Ick. Just really. Ick.

  • the underground train

    What in the world did I just read!? “I like being the final party planner” what the actual f*@!

    • Marsbars09

      I know underground. Fake ain’t got no sense. I would never see her to plan a funeral.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Earth to Phaedra: having good skin is the reason why people would not trust you because you obviously didn’t use the “skin care” people want to know you use it and not just because you had an endorsement. You are a stupid Phaedra.
    Just like your “donkey booty” video you had to get “excercise tips” from people because you don’t excercise because you have a natural donkey booty but people are to believe to do these excercxizes.. I can’t even finish what I want to say because Phaedra is so stupid and I am mad.

    • Marsbars09

      Apparently you’re not the only one.
      I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

      • Faux Gibbler

        I am! And thank you too. We will celebrate Thanksgiving next Thursday due to conflicting schedules in fam. But I love Thanksgiving all you have to do is be thankful!

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    They had to photoshop the shit out of those photos. She’s never been that thin. Have they never seen her in a bathing suit thong that was three sizes too small or her macrame bathing suit cover?

    And I thought that Willie Watkins funeral dude decided not to go into business with Phaedra because she was super shady.

  • sunkissed748

    Need some receipts! Show the dang contract. Do not believe a word that comes out of your twisted lips.

    What the heck does the quote “in light of what’s going on now, politically … I think women need to be empowered to stand in their truth,” mean? She makes no kinda sense. Go back under the bridge you snuck out from. Troll.

    • Marsbars09

      Dang SK, that’s angriest I’ve ever heard you being.
      I hope you have a better Thanksgiving. 🙂

      • sunkissed748

        Oh Mars it’s just that yesterday I watched the reunion again with Phake not answering any questions & repeating I’m sorry to Porsha. So it’s still vivid how this woman lies, manipulates, changes facts around all the time. Otherwise I’m good! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving as well! Mangia. 🙂

  • anonymous

    Fakera is full of crap there is no way in hell that she signed a modeling contract. She is short and fat.

    • Reality Buffy

      She not fat but when you are short you look fat. Maybe a little thick.

  • Marsbars09

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
    Since it’s Thanksgiving I’m going to keep it cute. Fake’s gotta have dreams, right?

    • pixntrix

      Happy Thanksgiving Mars! Hers are nightmares I think.

    • KokoBanned

      Happy Thanksgiving darling. I will not acknowledge what is not real. 😉

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Happy Thanksgiving to you & all of my snark buddies.😘😘🦃🍗

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    I do not know why this is so hard for anyone to believe.
    There was a designer on PR a few seasons back that won. Her whole collection consisted of plus sized models.
    This season, the show stopping moment was when the plus sized model did a reveal & snatched off her cover up & strutted down the catwalk in a bathing suit.
    Phaedra is half the size that model was. She may not be a size 2 but she doesn’t have to be. I say WERK!!

    • Trippinhhard

      Thank you Bette people are still stuck on size 2 and drugged out dead eyes bone thin models. It’s not being discovered anymore it celebrities children getting job and they are not 5’9 or taller. Size 8 is considered plus size and it’s not in the real world. Designers are making more money on ‘plus size to them and regular size to the masses. I say girl keep u a bag packed and make that money.

    • wiseone

      Thin is out and thick is in. Plastic surgeons are making a killing – even white women are getting butt enhancements. Now models come in all shapes and sizes.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Precisely. I think it is only a big deal because it’s Pheadra & she is probably the most hated HW/ex HW right about now.
        Nene walked the catwalk & Kandi is gracing the cover of Essence so I don’t see what the big deal is.

        • wiseone

          I am with you on that.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            You know what time it is.

    • HearWhatISay

      Well hard to believe because Phaedra is a liar.
      She 5.1 feet and just looks ok.
      Her size is no big deal, but accusing someone of wanting to rape someone which was a lie is not a good look.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        No. No it is not a good look.

  • TashaLit

    She is clearly operating under the “all press is good press” philosophy and for that we really must give her credit. Between this and the Shemar nonsense, she is certainly taking what she can get. Kudos…I guess.

  • jpinphx

    You better work……covergirl.. do you thing on the runway… (’92)

  • GirlPlz

    Win a case

  • EyesWideOpen

    She is obviously photo shopped. And that pout is hideous. I know they probably are all told to do it by the photographer, but some are good at it, while she is so bad at it, she looks like a lunatic.

  • Ronnie

    Yes, you can Phaedra:
    Be a former career criminal and be on tv.

  • HearWhatISay

    5.1 foot model and just looks ok.
    Wendy Williams discussed this on her show and the audience was laughing.

  • HearWhatISay

    LOL
    in one of her photos her eyes look blue

  • Authentic

    I like Phaedra but why would Wilhelmina do this allowing Phaedra to promote the photoshopped photos? She is off/on again with weight and doesn’t always represent healthy successful African-American female lawyers so I question Wilhelmina’s goal .
    As an African American female i look nothing like Phaedra.
    This interview is completely Phaedra, no sparks for readers.
    I want to hear Wilhelmina’s stance on this subject due to Phaedra is a flip flopper on weight because she obviously likes food.
    This blog is strange to me. Phaedra should exploit what extremely short women should not look like and/or eat to avoid heart attacks, Phaedra = heart issues, . Yes, I know dangers increase for heart attacks in top heavy women, nothing below in autonomy (Phaedra). THIS BLOG IS JUST WIERD!
