On The Real Housewives of Atlanta tonight, the battle lines were drawn, and it was all about the booty workout videos. On one side was Phaedra Parks with her donkey booty workout, and on the other side was Kenya Moore with her stallion booty workout video, which she decided to do after she and Phaedra's business deal went sour.
Surprisingly, not everyone was on Phaedra's side. It seems pretty clear to me -- she's totally ripping off Phaedra's idea and is a big "copycat" as Apollo pointed out. Even if she was pissed at Phaedra for the way their deal went down, that's still pretty low. But Cynthia Bailey doesn't see it that way and was even supportive of Kenya. When Kenya was saying a video with her fabulous self on the front would be much more appealing than one graced with Phaedra Cynthia agreed. "I don't understand why anyone would want to look like a donkey," Kenya said, and Cynthia and Peter were right there onboard with her.
Of course when Phaedra was there, Cynthia didn't say a word to support Kenya. Phaedra was musing that Kenya must be bipolar (and I'm not sure I disagree based on what we've seen of her), and while Cynthia told the cameras she thought that was wrong, she stayed mum at the time (she likes to play both sides it seems). Porsha Stewart was just glad that someone else was finally seeing the evil of Kenya's ways. "She's the devil's sister," Phaedra said.
Kandi Burruss wanted to get Kenya's side of it straight from the horse's stallion's mouth, but after hearing it, she called her a bootlegger. "You're coming straight for her," she said. Exactly.
NeNe Leakes, however, floated into town and was firmly on Team Kenya. She said Phaedra does a lot of shady things, and that she didn't think a donkey booty was cute. "Have you ever seen a donkey booty?" she asked.
Finally Kenya told Phaedra to her face about her workout video. Phaedra made sure she knew that a stallion is a MALE horse, which I honestly wonder if Kenya had considered before that time. It's a pretty good point.
In the end, Phaedra chalked it up to imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, while Kenya declared Phaedra to be suffering from "full-of-shititis". The bottom line (no pun intended) is that Kenya couldn't care less what anyone thinks as long as she gets what she wants -- which in this case is money. “If I want to make a video because I’m hot, I’m going to make a video because I’m hot!” she declared. And, of course, she ended with a twirl.
Which would you be more apt to buy -- Phaedra's donkey booty video or Kenya's stallion workout video?
