EXCLUSIVE: 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Phaedra Parks shows off her secret to shedding her baby weight by becoming an ambassador for Xenadrine

Embattled Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks was spotted grocery shopping earlier today in Atlanta. Parks, a local attorney, was signed as an ambassador for Xenadrine. She will need the extra cash if she is named in the federal indictments in her husband’s bank fraud case.

According to a press release from Xenadrine, Parks is “the epitome of today’s motivated, driven, and goal oriented entrepreneurial female.” Supposedly, Phaedra added Xenadrine to her diet and exercise routine after delivering her second son.

The press release claims Phaedra credits the weight loss formula with giving her “an extra boost of energy that not only helped her barrel through her busiest days, but left her with enough extra energy for her workouts, cardio sessions, or tougher yet, another Real Housewives reunion!”

“I feel like ’embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out,” she said, referring to gay NFL draft prospect Michael Sam.

Deen continued: “He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.”
