Phaedra Parks on Her New Modeling Contract: “I Have No Problem Getting Naked”
Phaedra Parks has found herself a new job.
After being booted from the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the former reality star can now officially say she’s a model!
While also being a lawyer and a mortician, the 44-year-old is keeping herself busy extra busy thanks to her new contract with Wilhelmina Models.
The mother of two is hopeful her modeling career will inspire other women to follow their dreams.
“Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me ‘Why?’ and I said ‘Why not?’” she shared with Us Weekly.
“A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things."
She continued, “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”
Though she didn’t come of great on RHOA, Phaedra hopes to be a role model for women of diversity, too.
“I feel great about being different, in light of what’s going on now, politically,” she dished.
“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.”
Not to mention, going through her divorce from Apollo Nida has given her the confidence to try something new.
“Going through everything was so much stress, but then when it finished it was just effortless,” she confessed.
“I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy.”
And, even though she’s a mama, don’t be surprised if she sheds her clothing for a modeling campaign!
“I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves.”
She continued, “I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”
