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.
Eric and Bethenny maintained that they are “just friends,” which we all expected them to do, but Bethenny did admit to dating another famous New Yorker. Thankfully the man I’m alluding to isn’t Tom D’Agostino, but anything is possible at this point.
Since that mess appeared before the eyes of millions of judging viewers, Kandi asked the judge if she could file a counter suit accusing Johnnie of defamation of character for disparaging her business and reputation.
Andy all but admits the cast united against Phaedra Obviously- who would trust working with her after that?! Phaedra is already slippery when not wet – now she’s basically spoiled buttermilk curdling the cake!
