Despite her co-star’s lack of support, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks released her second exercise video, “Donkey Booty 2,” with her husband Apollo Nida. The DVD is a follow-up to the couple’s first exercise video, “Donkey Booty Volume 1.”

“I don’t think you should do a workout video,” former Miss USA, Kenya Moore told Phaedra on a recent episode of RHOA. “Your body’s not there. Your body looks like sh*t.”

Pregnant Phaedra paid no mind to the not-so-Beyonce look-a-like, but is making sure she stays healthy during her second pregnancy by not overeating.

“Some people subscribe to the myth, ‘I’m eating for two people,’ ” Phaedra told People. “Well, not really. The other person is half of a pound. I wouldn’t really count that as an individual. It’s obviously a living organism, but something weighing seven pounds doesn’t really allow you to eat two meals.”

While pregnant, Phaedra is eating small portions of healthy foods and continues to stay active.

“I just try to eat organic, healthy food. I eat a lot of small meals per day. If I want something, I try to eat it in moderation if it’s something that’s not good for me,” Phaedra continued.

As for crazy pregnancy cravings, “I don’t really have any cravings. The only thing I [craved] during my last pregnancy were oranges. I love citrus fruit.”

“I just eat to live. I don’t live to eat.,” the mother-to-be said. “Some people are living to eat, and I try to have a healthy relationship with food.”

And food is not the only healthy relationship Phaedra wishes to maintain…

In a recent interview with Perez Hilton, Phaedra said she would not be interested in doing a spin-off series revolving around her family life.

“Doing the Housewives is plenty of drama,” she said. “I love my family, we get along and I want to keep having a healthy relationship, so if I did a show I definitely would not have my family on.”

“I find that in shows where it’s really concentrated on your personal life — everyone sees enough of our home life already — it’s very invasive and you don’t have a lot of privacy just being on Housewives in general.”

Phaedra continued, “For every show to be good there always has to be some drama or some antagonistic perspective, and I don’t want to have to fight with my husband or my mama.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta fan-favorite, NeNe Leakes will be one of six celebrities chosen to be part of “The Price is Right: Celebrity Week!” NeNe will play alongside regular contestants and their winnings will be awarded to NeNe’s chosen charity, Saving Our Daughters on Tuesday, February 19th.

The Real Housewives of New York City star Carole Radziwill has split from her boyfriend of two years, Russ Irwin.

“Russ and I have decided to call it quits,” Carole told Us Weekly.

So, what are Carole’s plans for Valentine’s Day now that she is single? “I haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day since the fifth grade when the boy I had a crush on gave me a valentine, only to find out later that he gave one to the entire class, including the boys,” she said.

As for Carole’s future on The Real Housewives of New York City, it is all still up in the air. In fact, the entire cast’s future is at a standstill.

As we reported a few weeks ago, filming for the new season of RHONY has been pushed back—for the second time—until late February.

“The entire thing is in disarray,” a source told New York Daily News. “They were told one date and it didn’t happen. The last season ended in October and they were told to keep February onwards free. They’ve been waiting weeks to get story lines and plot out the season, but nobody’s called.”

Even though the ladies’ futures are in shambles,New York’s Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lessepes were spotted alongside their men at Lucky Strike Lanes in New York City this past weekend.

The Pinot Grigio enthusiast and Money Can’t Buy You Class singer tried their hands at bowling for the 26th Annual Second Stage All Star Bowling Classic to raise money for educational programming.

While the ladies may not have a future in professional bowling, Ramona’s husband Mario Singer did roll a strike! “Mario just got a strike so excited !!,” Ramona tweeted.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, Albie, Chris and Caroline Manzo were just some of the celebrities in attendance at the Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund Gala at the W Hotel in Hoboken this past Saturday.

Buddy Valastro from Cake Boss as well as Dancing with the Stars’ Anna Demidova were all there to show support for the charity.

The event helped raise money to help residents and local business owners from Hoboken rebuild after the devastation left behind by Hurricane Sandy back in October.

Teresa and Joe Giudice sure have their hands full with their four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, however Teresa may not be done poppin’ out kids!

Although Tre is reluctant to give birth again, she tells InTouch, “Joe really wants a boy, and he said we should get a surrogate to carry it.”

The publication also cited a show insider who said that Teresa is seriously considering Joe’s recommendation to use a surrogate for the couple’s fifth child.

“He is really pressuring her,” the source explained. “If that’s what he wants, she may just give in.”

As for names for their un-born son: “Franco,” Teresa said. “After my father-in-law.”

Which Real Housewife is in a dispute over her Star Island home?

The Real Housewives of Miami castmember Lisa Hochstein and husband Dr. Leonard Hochstein purchased a Star Island home at a foreclosure auction for $7.6 million.

The couple has plans to demolish the house, located on 42 Star Island Drive, and rebuild because it is not structurally sound or livable, according to the couple’s engineer. However, the Miami Design Preservation League is asking the Historic Preservation Board of Miami Beach to save the home from demolition by deeming it a “Historical Landmark.”

Lisa and her husband believe that the Preservation League is using this as a publicity stunt saying, “I think it’s disgusting.”

“We are just trying to move forward with our lives,” Lisa told NBC6 South Florida after the board hearing.

At this time, the couple can’t demolish their property. A continuance hearing is scheduled for March.
