It seems The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Phaedra Parks needs a little more than her Donkey Booty Workout DVD to help regain her pre-pregnancy figure after giving birth to her second son, Dylan, last May, because the Atlanta attorney has just been announced as an “ambassador” for the Xenadrine weight loss supplement!
Phaedra follows in her RHOA cast mate Kim Zolciak’s post-baby footsteps as a spokesperson for the supplement, which made headlines in the 1990s because it contained the controversial ingredient ephedra. The company has since eliminated ephedra from Xenadrine’s ingredients (Which sucks because it means I will be unable to work in an Ephedra Parks joke) (Wait, I just did!) and replaced it with “a scientifically advanced weight loss formula that’s designed to bring you extreme energy,” according to their Facebook page.
So why Phaedra Parks? Given her resume as a successful Atlanta attorney and recent author, Xenadrine says Phaedra is “the epitome of today’s motivated, driven, and goal oriented entrepreneurial female.” A spokesman says Phaedra began taking Xenadrine because she was “looking to get back in stunningly amazing shape” after giving birth to her second son. Phaedra has been taking Xenadrine as a supplement to her diet and exercise routine, says the spokesperson.
According to the description attached to the promotional photos included in this post, Phaedra says “the weight loss formula gave her an extra boost of energy that not only help 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!”
