Keeping up with The Real Housewives of Atlanta is always a workout.
But this season, the cast of the Bravo show is really making the audience sweat with a pair of dueling fitness DVDs.
Real Housewife Phaedra Parks released a program in the fall that promised to give viewers a donkey booty.
Now, Kenya Moore is competing with her Booty Boot Camp ($17), which comes with a similar pledge: Get the round stallion booty you’ve always wanted.
According to Moore, a former Miss USA turned model-actress, a stallion booty is a nice, round, toned, firmed behind. As someone who’s been exercising for 30 years, Moore knows exactly how to achieve that look: She lies facedown or gets on all fours, and then pulses, kicks and lifts her legs until her backside burns.
And when it starts to hurt? I think about how good I’m going to look on the red carpet, Moore says.
The secret to a really great butt, she says, is to think about the total package.
Everything needs to be proportioned and toned. That means you have to work out the entire body, says Moore, who strives to maintain a flat tummy and small waist to complete her ideal Jessica Rabbit figure. Her DVD’s three 20-minute bootycentric routines (with increasing difficulty) are sandwiched between a cardio warm-up and an abs-focused cooldown.
That combination, Moore says, is suited for all levels of exercisers – that includes guys, who often neglect their rear ends.
