Phaedra Parks

Following the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bravo caught up with Phaedra Parks for her thoughts on NeNe Leakes on Broadway and the drama surrounding her refusal to explain why she hasn’t taken her boys to see Apollo Nida in prison despite his pleas to the gossip magazines. <eye roll>

When asked if she saw NeNe in Cinderella, Phaedra said, “I most certainly did see NeNe on Broadway, and she was absolutely fantastic, as you would expect. Her performance was dazzling and I was particularly impressed with how she made the role her own. It can be difficult to portray such a well-known character, let alone add your own style and flair to such an established role.”

Phaedra added, “One of the best parts of watching NeNe on stage was seeing her so happy; she was enjoying every minute of it and was absolutely glowing. I am looking forward to seeing whatever is next for my friend.”

Last week on Watch What Happens Live, Phaedra rudely refused to answer a caller who asked if she has taken Ayden and Dylan to see their dad, Apollo, in prison. Phaedra, who has received criticism for being so flippant to the caller and/or keeping boys away from their dad, skirted the question with Bravo, too.

When asked why she hasn’t taken them, Phaedra said, “Despite the fact that I’m on a reality show, there are some things in my life that are off limits. People who watch the show only get one slice of the entire Phaedra pie, and it is unfair to make judgments about someone, or a situation, without all the information.”

“The one thing I will say is that every single decision I make is based on one thing: the well-being of my two boys,” continued Phaedra. “It’s easy for people to ask why she did that or why she isn’t doing this, but the simple truth is unless you are in that situation yourself, you can’t make that judgment. I do my best to make smart decisions after carefully considering all options and consulting with experts and others who advise me. I know in my heart that everything I do is based on what is best for my children.” I strongly believe Phaedra should have sat out this season. That’s “what is best” in my humble opinion.
