Phaedra Parks may be having some trouble at home, with hubby Apollo Nida’s eight-year prison sentence looming large, but that doesn’t mean she’s too busy worrying to give a little bit of her time to a good cause.


The Southern Belle followed in the footsteps of her Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss and made a video for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Phaedra announced that her intention in getting soaked was twofold: to raise awareness about ALS and to honor the memory of Mike Brown, the unarmed teenager who was killed by police in Ferguson, MO earlier this month.

#alsicebucketchallenge glad to see everyone participating hopefully it sparks true activism and philanthropy!” Phaedra wrote of her video.

While she may have been keen to try the challenge for herself, the RHoA diva wasn’t alone in her efforts. Phaedra’s adorable 4-year-old son, Ayden, was instrumental in helping with the challenge, carefully pouring a small pan of water on his mom.

We’ve certainly seen more dramatic takes on the Ice Bucket Challenge, but we haven’t seen a cuter one!

Are you surprised that Phaedra completed the challenge? What do you think of her message in the video? Sound off in the comments!
