The Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to deliver the ghettoliciousnes tonight when Phaedra Parks gets a little confused about her due date. When Sheree asks when the baby’s gonna come, Phaedra, who claims she’s five or six months pregnant, says the baby’s ready to come any day now.
When someone asks “Isn’t it dangerous for the baby to come at six or seven months?” Phaedra (who is a lawyer by trade) doesn’t skip a beat in saying “Not if everything’s fully formed and the lungs are functioning.”
After much talk about the baby sitting on the bladder and the others mentioning that they’ve never known a doctor who would induce a healthy woman to give birth at six months, Phaedra claims she doesn’t know how far along she is, she just knows they’re going to induce at 34 weeks.
She seems to be laughing off preterm birth like it’s no big deal, but the medical consensus is that any baby born before 37 week is a big deal, and at risk for a great number of physical problems, including death.

Nene and Sheree suspect that something else is up, and Phaedra is claiming she’s about to give birth to a premature baby to cover up something else. Phaedra once made a big deal to Cynthia about how she didn’t live with Apollo Nida before they were legally wed, so maybe she’s going through all this nonsense just to cover up that she got pregnant before she got married.
Whatever it is, it looks worse to pretend like you think it’s normal to give birth at six months gestation.
Sheree said it best when she said “Bitch, you don’t know when you got knocked up?”
As usual, Kandi didn’t say much, but her face told an epic tale.
Here’s a clip of Phaedra talking to Kandi in the delivery room where she talks about how her mother Regina requires her children to be married when they have babies. The ironic thing is that Regina has nine grandchildren, and Phaedra’s is the only one born in wedlock:
As Kandi says, “Oooooooooooh.”
Immediately after that Phaedra’s doctor confirmed to Kandi and the camera that Phaedra was full term, and at 40 weeks, not 34 weeks as Phaedra claimed. The room got really silent after that, and Kandi was like, “Ok, I’m gonna peace out right now.”
