New model Phaedra Parks isn’t afraid to get naked on camera
“I don’t mind baring it all — I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years,” the former Bravo star told Us Weekly. “I had two children on national TV. I love nudity!”
Noting that she loves her body and curves, Parks said, “I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”
“I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can,’” Parks said. “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?’”
Amid personal turmoil — particularly her highly publicized divorce from husband Apollo Nida, who is serving an eight-year sentence after pleading guilty to federal fraud charges in 2014 — Parks is rewriting her own story, with a revenge body to boot.

“I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy,” she said.
With the holidays fast approaching, Parks is also preparing for an influx of business in funeral arrangements.
“Being a mortician is a passion of mine and everything I’m passionate about I just dive right in. This is our peak season actually, the peak season from deaths is from Halloween to around Valentine’s Day, so we’re very busy — people are going to glory pretty regularly. I’m directing a few funerals this weekend,” Parks said. “I know it’s morbid, but I love being the final party planner.”
