Phaedra Parks knows all about being pregnant in the public eye. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star (and donkey booty impresario) recently spoke out about the media criticizing pregnant women's weight gain!

Defending Kim Kardashian, whose changing figure is constantly critiqued (I think people are questioning fashion choices more than anything!) while appearing on the The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Phaedra reminded people, "You’re not supposed to be skinny and pregnant.”

"I’m a regular-sized woman. I’m all-natural. All this, God gave me, I grew it. And I mean, everybody’s not made to be skinny, everybody’s not made to be fat. So you gotta be happy [with] the skin you’re in. I’m advertising what’s real,” Phaedra added. 


“When women are pregnant, they are going through a whole transition. I’m growing a baby, she's growing a baby," Phaedra said about Kim. "People are too hard on pregnant women. Obviously you don’t want to gain a lot of weight but at the end of the day, some people do. It just happens.”

Phaedra also spoke out about Kenya Moore stating Phaedra was "too fat" to make an exercise DVD. Phaedra said at the time she and Apollo filmed the segments she was already 3 months pregnant, but hadn't formally announced it.
