The reunion will reportedly expose Phaedra as being the source behind Porsha Williams‘s claims that Kandi is a lesbian, and that Phaedra encouraged Porsha to make the “date rape” accusation. As a result Phaedra has not being given a “renewal contract” for season 10. Contracts were allegedly already sent last week. (seems a bit earlier than the usual)
Phaedra tried to blame the rumors on former Executive Producer Carlos King (Carlos supposedly had a professional beef with Todd Tucker over a reality show on another network and apparently this manifested into a vendetta against Kandi). Kandi has obviously been was VERY, VERY unhappy with her storyline this season. So upset that Carlos was also reportedly fired, and won’t be returning next season.

NeNe Leakes also had a ton of issues with Carlos. He was reportedly one of the major reasons she left RHOA, and she lobbied to get him removed from the show. Kandi’s issues with Carlos may have had something to do with NeNe and Kandi making peace.
Anyway, a production source told the blog Love B Scott, that last week the entire cast was offered new contracts except for Phaedra. “She got caught in so many treacherous lies this season that even the producers (including Andy Cohen) have had enough. She even brought ‘fake’ divorce papers to the reunion to prove a point. No one knows whether she’s telling the truth about anything anymore.”
Per the source, once Phaedra’s “lies” about Kandi turned into to a legal issue between Kandi, Phaedra, and Porsha, the network decided Phaedra wasn’t worth the hassle.
Interesting. First off Kenya Moore has a close relationship with this blog. Secondly, I find it VERY hard to believe they would keep Porsha, but fire Phaedra? Even if Phaedra did convince Porsha that Kandi is a lesbian, etc. Porsha is a grown woman who made her own decision to repeat those things on camera.
Thirdly, Phaedra was actually legally divorced, but it was reversed (after reunion wrapped). Apollo contested the divorce. Rumor has it Apollo is contesting only because he wants to get money out of Phaedra, which is why it took so long to settle in the first place. Furthermore, I think all parties on RHOA, including Kandi and Phaedra, have been plenty shady to each other, with dredging up legal issues.
However RHOA desperately needs a shake-up! I personally, would have let go of Kenya, Cynthia, and Porsha, but Phaedra has seemed checked-out the last couple seasons and it probably is time for her to leave and focus on politics. Love B Scott points to proof of Phaedra’s firing that she’s removed RHOA from her Instagram and Twitter handles. I don’t know what was on there before, so I can’t say either way.
Phaedra, of course, denied being fired, with her reps telling multiple outlets that the rumor is “untrue.”
