Phaedra Parks: I’m A Model Now!
Congratulations to Phaedra Parks! The reality star is now adding model to her resume. Despite her departure from Real Housewives of Atlanta, she’s snagged a new job and has signed on with Wilhelmina Models.
She says of her goals for modeling,
I think I’m the face of “yes you can.” I’m a small town girl who has followed her 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?” A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!
When asked what her dream campaign is, she explains,
Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.
She says of showing some skin and taking it off for the camera,
I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national T.V. I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.
What do you think of Phaedra’s new modeling gig?
