Actor Stephen Lang (Avatar) and my Latest DVD Giveaway Kenya Moore: Booty Bootcamp

(Real Housewives of Atlanta!)


Kenya Moore

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you beautiful people out there? I am fine and dandy and eager to share with you my latest news. So instead of me jawing about it-why don’t we get right to today’s Vlog and BFC giveaway, shall we?

On today’s Vlog I mention:

  • My apartment situation.
  • The “Blitz” class I took at Reebok Sports Club/NY http://reeboksportsclubny.com/ which I incorrectly say is in Columbus Circle rather than near Lincoln Center but I am not changing it now because I already filmed 20 takes and I am sick of hearing myself speak on camera. (Sorry Reebok Sports Club! I will get it right for my article for Fit Bottomed Girl.)
  • Actor Stephen Lang http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002332/?ref_=tt_cl_t4 of Avatar fame and his foxiness.
  • My latest giveaway—Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp DVD.

Now let’s check out today’s Vlog post!


Got that? Now here is more information about Kenya Moore’s DVD:


Get the round stallion booty you’ve always wanted!  Three Fat-Blasting, Total-Body Sculpting workouts

SILVER SPRING, Md – From the breakout star of Bravo’s hit show The Real Housewives of Atlanta and former Miss USA comes the secret for looking fit and fine with Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp debuting on DVD from award-winning distributor Acacia on March 5, 2013 ($16.99, 78 min.).

A triple threat with beauty, brains and talent, Kenya, alongside instructor Nikki Veal, offers three 20-minute workouts that will sculpt your lower body, shrink your waistline, flatten and define your abs, and, most importantly, lift and firm your backside. Get ready to sweat with these energizing fat-blasting workouts, and you’ll be in red-carpet shape in no time! The DVD also includes a bonus ab-flattening workout.

Kenya adds, “I’ve had a passion for fitness since I was twelve years old while working out to an aerobics television show several times a week. Since then, fitness and staying active have been a huge part of my life. Whether I was competing in Miss USA or trying out for a new acting role, it’s always been important to me to look and feel good and staying red carpet ready. I’m excited to share my fitness plan with the Booty Boot Camp workout so that everyone can be Gone With The Wind Fabulous!”

Since joining this season, Kenya quickly became the newest breakout star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The series averages nearly 4 million viewers each week and is a top-rated cable show in its Sunday time slot. Season five marks Kenya’s debut as a cast member and it is also the most-watched season in the show’s history thus far. (Source: Nielsen Media Research, L7 data through 2/03/13.)


A former Miss USA, Kenya’s monikers include actress, author, producer, director, singer, and CEO of her own production company, Moore Vision Media who also produces her Booty Boot Camp video. The popular actress has starred in more than 14 movies, including the blockbuster Waiting to Exhale, and over 20 television shows. She’s the author of Game, Get Some, published in 2007, and her second book, Invisible, will be coming out later this year. Moore also released her hit single, “Gone With The Wind Fabulous” debuting at #30 on the iTunes charts.
