‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’: Phaedra Parks Brands Cynthia Bailey A “Lap Dog” Before Season 7 Premiere


‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s seventh season may be weeks away, but that hasn’t stopped some of its stars weighing in on some of the drama set to rock its audience this month.

For, after her former pal NeNe Leakes took to numerous outlets to accuse the model of being more of a follower than a leader, Cynthia Bailey has been billed a “lap dog” by their costar Phaedra Parks.

How Parks attacked Bailey’s supposedly “wishy-washy” nature?

Full story below…

On the star’s recent interview with ‘Ellen’,  ‘Reality Tea’ reports:

Finally Ellen asks Phaedra to play a word association game with her RHOA cast mates. Most surprisingly, Phaedra and NeNe Leakes seem to have built a genuine friendship! Below are Phaedra’s responses:

NeNe – “Genuine” Phaedra adds, “She has been the most supportive person through all of this.” 

Kandi Burrus – “Buddy” Phaedra beams and says they are friends. Awwww… I love Phaedra and Kandi! 

Kenya Moore: “Satan” The audience and Ellen burst out laughing.Phaedra won’t elaborate on why, but says to watch the show. 

Claudia Jordan: “Kenya Jr.” Ellen says, “Satan Jr” and Phaedra says, “No – just Kenya Jr.” Phaedra implied Claudia wanted to make a name for herself on the show. 

Cynthia Bailey – “Lapdog”. When Ellen says everyone loves a lapdog,Phaedra gives her a look that again makes the audience laugh.

Demetria McKinney – “Day-old communion bread.” Ellen, clearly not Catholic, doesn’t get it so Phaedra clarifies that Demetria is boring, “Like watching paint dry.” Ouch – guess we know why she didn’t get a peach!


It wouldn’t mark the first time Bailey has been blasted for her arguably passive persona.

For, during her first season on the hit series, the mother of one was censured by some critics unimpressed by her first story line…centred around her doubts surrounding her then forthcoming wedding to husband Peter Bailey.

Doubts, that saw her mother and sister forge an unforgettable TV moment when they conspired to hide the marriage certificate to stop the seemingly unsure Bailey from going through with it.

Then of course, there was this…

Do you agree with Phaedra?

    Looks like it. More than one has said it.

    Petra aka Peter should be the peach holder out of those 2.

    He brings more drama than her

    The Neverland clip posted by AubreyOSlay is why I wanted Sheree back — just for the drama of being called out on Chateau Sheree.
    Wow, a question about Demetria McKinney, but not one about Porsha? Phaedra’s storyline with Apollo guaranteed her another season, Kandi/Todd/Joyce drama was a sure thing, Nene’s the queen, and Kenya’s the resident mess-starter. Porsha, Claudia, Cynthia, and Demetria clearly needed to turn up for the right to hold a peach. We know how it worked out — Cynthia kept her peach, Claudia got one, Porsha was demoted to friend status, and Demetria never made it all the way in.
