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.
No matter how many Bible verses and inspirational quotes Phaedra posts on social media, pretty much no one is going to look past Phaedra’s shadiness. So I have no idea why she thinks she is fit to be a politician. Political jokes aside, who in their right mind is going to trust Phaedra enough to vote for her to take on any sort of position? Nevertheless, Phaedra is delusional enough to think that she has politics in her future.
This weekend the reality stars flocked to New Orleans for the 2017 ESSENCE Festival. Among the reality celebrities photographed there: Kenya Moore (marriage looks good on her), Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and others. Rumor has it that Matt Jordan even made an appearance, which is interesting since Kenya has a restraining order against him!
Yandy Smith was also in New Orleans, to attend the screening of the new movie Girls Trip.
Kourtney Kardashian was spotted at LAX while sister Kendall Jenner was in Paris with Bella Hadid.
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.
I have no idea how Phaedra Parks sleeps at night after what she did to Kandi Burruss, but apparently tweeting inspirational quotes is her coping mechanism to get through lying about date rape attempts. Not only did she slander Kandi for months, but she also lied to her “best friend” Porsha Williams just so she could have a solider on her side. It was disgusting and she crossed the line more than any other Housewife ever has. Ever. Which is saying a lot.
Obviously no one who is a part of the show wants anything to do with Phaedra and she can’t be a cast member if she films all of her scenes alone. So she’s not coming back as Housewife….but there are rumors that she might come back to film one pivotal scene.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion aired a while ago, but I am still reeling from THE LIES (said in a Kandi Burrussvoice) that came undone. I’m sure Kandi feels somewhat vindicated after Phaedra Parks (reluctantly) admitted that she lied to Porsha Williams about Kandi’s attempt to drug and rape Porsha, but it was still a tough year. In fact, Kandi almost quit the show.
I have no idea what “almost quitting” means. I feel like pretty much every longtime housewife “speaks out” about “considering leaving” the show at some point. I don’t know if it’s a play for attention, an increased salary, or a genuine revelation, but it’s just all too common. Nevertheless, this Kandi situation is one of the most (if not the most) extreme story lines in Real Housewives history. So I don’t blame her for wanting to walk out. It’s not like she needs the money.
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.
