LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Kenya Moore has a workout video that will be released by her production company, Moore Vision Media, so she tells Phaedra Parks in the latest Real Housewives of Atlanta storyline. But after Walter Jackson accused Kenya Moore of allegedly faking her relationship with him, are Moore’s assertions about a workout video actually real? A quick perusal of the US Copyright Office and Trademark reveals that Kenya Moore and her company claim no ownership rights to any currently released or upcoming workout video, LALATE can report.
Last Sunday, RHOA viewers were hit with a workout bombshell. Kenya Moore reveled that she is not dealing with Phaedra Parks on Apollo’s video. Moore also revealed that she intends to release her own workout video called “Stallion B–ty” to compete with Parks. But is Moore blowing dramatic “reality” tv smoke or are her claims actually true?
Phaedra Parks released her own workout DVD in December 2012. LALATE has previously reported exclusively that Parks has procured not one but two trademarks. Along with “Donkey B-ty”, Parks also owns the trademark for “Phine by Phaedra”. Parks intends to release a line of workout clothing with the “Phine by Phaedra” brand name to compliment her Phine Body workout video release, LALATE has reported exclusively.
But does Kenya Moore really have a workout video? Kenya Moore and Moore Vision Media have not procured any copyrights for any workout video over the last year. Moreover, the two have not procured any trademarks for any workout video or similar since RHOA filming has begun.
Moore could, however, still twirl a workout video into gone-with-the-wind-fabulous distribution without trademark and copyright registration. But Parks this week told news that Kenya, in her opinion, is not particularly savvy. “While I have been noted as many things, a less that astute business woman has not been one of them. While we considered using Kenya, just like every other production company we contacted, we expected a budget, transparency, and the right to ask questions and receive answers. However, Kenya was opposed to all of this. She instead wanted my husband and me to pay her $100K in production fees with a 10% back end for an idea she did not invest in or assist in developing.”
