I must admit I watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta faithfully since well…since it started. This season there are two characters who both came out with workout DVDs. On the show one of the characters had plans to make a video about “donkey booties”. Her term for plump, fat buttocks which is a trait often associated with women of African American descent. I for one don’t like the term “donkey” anything. The character planning her workout DVD with her husband recruited the help of another character on the show with getting it made. Long story short they fall out and the other lady ends up making plans to launch her OWN butt-building DVD! Oh the shame and horror. Biting is one of the worst offenses that can be done and this most definitely was a deliberate BITE. Not saying having a workout DVD to build a proud posterior is unique – but it is highly coincidental both characters come up with the idea when one of the two has been talking about it for like every season she been on the show.
I will admit – I have a bunch of workout DVDs and very few really make me sweat. Only 2 DVD gurus make me sweat, well 3. Jillian Michaels, Cathe Friedrich and Althea Thompson! All the others give me a nice little sweat but I am not limping or really sore afterwards. I do wonder if these 2 DVDs are worth the money they are charging on Amazon.com. I mean what does Phine Body offer we can’t get from a personal trainer? What does Booty Boot Camp really serve up that we can’t get from our local boot camp?
I don’t know and am not sure I want to put my money behind it to find out. One of the things that make me want to purchase a workout DVD is because I believe in the person on the package. I believe they want to help us get into the best shape of our lives.
If you have purchased and worked out with these DVDs please leave a comment below and let us know what you liked about them, what they lacked and how many stars you give it out of 10 stars total. One star means it is WACK…ten stars means it is the BEST WORKOUT DVD EVER!
