Never has their been a bigger Real Housewives conundrum than Phaedra Parks. One-part preacher’s daughter, one part-convict’s wife, one-part funeral director, one-part stripper’s attorney, one-part pickle connoisseur, one-part southern belle, one-part attorney, one-part aspiring politician, and one-part thong devotee.
With all her shade, crazy facial expressions, and inconsistencies, Phaedra will be missed on Real Housewives Of Atlanta and we are here to give her an official Phuneral By Phaedra in remembrance of her many contributions to the drama in the Bravo Universe.
Unfortunately, the recently disgraced Phaedra Parks will be back on the TV pretty soon. Fortunately, she will be with her adorable son Ayden- someone I will miss on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nope, they’re not returning to reality TV and I assume their recent appearance was taped before the now-infamous RHOAreunion revelation.
Phaedra and her smart, adorable son will be on a game show on USA Network called Big Star Little Star, reminding us of the one reason we would want Phaedra back on RHOA: her kids.
Of course, just when Phaedra is emotionally done with all things Apollo, she’s forced to confront him again in court with a re-divorce. “[The divorce] was finalized last year in July so of course that obviously made me assume I had regained my independence and a new start,” she admits. “So to be placed back into a position where I have to do it all over again … it’s disheartening, but it’s a process and I can’t obviously change it.”
The breakup between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is the divorce that will never end. I have never felt so worn out from someone else’s relationship. I also never realized that someone’s divorce status could be so murky. You’re either divorced or you’re not divorced – right? Or at least that is what I naively thought until this breakup began to unravel.
Now, Apollo is contesting the prenuptial agreement from his jail cell.
Phaedra is an attorney, so I’m sure that agreement is iron clad, but then again I never thought a lawyer would be so foolish to slander someone’s reputation the way Phaedra has. So maybe I’ve just been putting way too much stock into Phaedra’s law degree (and character) this whole time.
Kenya Moore is never one to waste an opportunity to throw shade – and she’s certainly not wasting the opportunity to affix a halo atop that tarnished pageant crown and Moore Haircare while Phaedra Parks is so much worse for the wear following the scandalous revelations that came out of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion.
After years of feuding with Phaedra, it is finally Kenya who is the victor waving the scepter over her spoils. Good for you, Krayonce! Taking us way back to the origins of her feud with Phaedra, Kenya dredges up the Donkey Booty/Stallion Booty workout video war to explain how she and Phaedra ended up where they are today.
The contradiction that is Phaedra makes for interesting, albeit frustrating TV. I heard that Phaedra had an extremely tough time at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary so far. My expectations are unreasonably high, but I am waiting for some major truth bombs to be unleashed, or at the very least, some lies to be exposed. I am so ready for parts three and four.
I never thought I would be so confused about whether a couple is divorced or not. It should be such a simple concept, but the split between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is anything but simple. It’s shaping up to be the messiest divorce in Real Housewives history. Not only that, but Apollo wants Phaedra to foot the bill – as if she wasn’t already carrying this family on her back.
Yes, there has been a lot of shadiness around Phaedra’s finances, love life, and plenty of other areas, but I still can’t help feeling bad for all of the Apollo-inflicted drama she and her cute sons have had to endure. If Phaedra has as much money as Apollo claims, she should throw some bills his way in exchange for him shutting his mouth. If LaLa Kent (of all people) can get people to sign non-disclosure agreements, then Phaedra (a lawyer) should do something similar. But that’s not the case and Apollo is calling Phaedra out…again.
After a whole season of spreading rumors about Kandi Burruss and never getting caught, I feel like Phaedra Parks is going to have a hellish time at the reunion. Sure Kandi and her had a nice moment during the Real Housewives of Atlantafinale episode, but that was before Kandi got to watch all of the episodes back and see exactly what Phaedra has been saying about her this entire time.
Other than the continued tension between Phaedra and Kandi, the other big story from the finale was Kim Zolciak’s return and her random argument with Kenya Moore.
