Phaedra was extremely pregnant during season one of Real Housewives of Atlanta but when the women asked how preggers she was, they were met with confusing answers. One minute Phaedra said she was six months pregnant but when the other women pointed out that her due date didn't match she said she didn't know how pregnant she was and then tried to say that an actual doctor was the one who told her that she was six months along. Finally Kandi put the pieces together and realized that Phaedra most likely got pregnant out of wedlock and fabricated the truth out of embarrassment. Most people who have children out of wedlock--no matter how strong their morals--concede defeat and keep it real about their status. Claiming anything else--especially when people can see and count--would just be strange.
