Phaedra Parks Talks ‘Real Housewives’ Return & Kandi Burruss Beef

Published: Saturday 13th Jul 2019 by Sam

For over eight years, Phaedra Parks was an integral part of Bravo hit the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’

However, a colossal clash with former bestie Kandi Burruss saw the attorney ousted from the show in 2017.

Recent times have seen fans rally for her return – with even  Nene Leakes joining in the calls.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Parks addressed her drama with Burruss, the possibility of a comeback, and more.

Her words below…

On Kandi Feud:

“I find it amusing, because if she is that concerned about me three years later, I must have really impacted her life. So I’m glad I touched her like that.”

On An RHOA Return:

“I know there’s lots of rumors swirling around about me returning to the housewives, but I haven’t had any discussions about returning.

I never say never to any opportunities, but I had a good run and you know, I’m very happy right now.”

Her Her Housewives Experience:

 “I was on Real  Housewives for eight years. Both of my children were born on air, my ex spouse went to prison on the show.

I had a lot of big events happen in my life on there so I’ve got a lot of great memories.

I would never say never, but I’m in a very great place in my life… and you see this glow.”

On Reality TV Not Being Real:

“I was just a character that they’re manipulating for their own benefit.

[For example] They completely made up one story that I was dating an African prince the day Apollo went to prison.

I was seeing some African man named Mr Chocolate while I was breastfeeding my baby, going to mortuary school, my husband’s going to prison and I’ve got a two-year-old.

I mean, it was the most ludicrous, crazy thing in the world. I was never unfaithful in my marriage at all.

But of course the show ran with it because it made for good TV.

That’s just nature of the beast, you can’t cry over spilled milk.

It is what it is. Reality shows are not real. They’re for entertainment at everyone else’s expense, except the people that make it, so you can’t regret anything.

You just have to accept what it is and keep it moving.” [Source]


Ms. Parks clearly feels strongly about her time on ‘Housewives,’ but whatever the case we’d love to see her back in the mix. Surely, the ratings would spike…right?

      See Jasmines comment. Common knowledge she was fed a lie by a staff member that is no longer there and repeated it. She was hurt by the fact her once bestie choose to support her exes shenanigans instead of standing n by her side as she should have. None of what happened should have ended the sister friendship they had. There is always a way to make peace and find the love they had/have for eachother again. FAITH!

  2. foolishpride July 13, 2019

    She is a liability to Bravo thats why she won’t be back

    • Jasmine July 14, 2019

      Not really. Phaedra needs a storyline though. I think her storyline was based around her marriage to a felon. Now that it is dissolved what exactly is her storyline. She is very private with her personal life so what does she bring to the table except southern one-liners?

      • Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers July 14, 2019

        TROLLmine I AGREE !

      • Casual July 14, 2019

        Kandi doesn’t have a storyline either.

      • Jasmine July 14, 2019

        The Jasmine obsession from that heshe thing FAKE Jasmine troll is concerning. Mental health is nothing to let go untreated. Name calling me ‘Trollmine’ gives that demon purpose in life. It is pathetic. Very pathetic indeed.

      • Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBaAsianCrew July 14, 2019

    Trailer trash. Next!

  4. Erica July 13, 2019

    People who want her back shows your character & morals… what she did was very low down & to me she shouldn’t even want to come back after all the mess she started!! Kandi was a very good friend to her & was loyal to her

    • Jasmine July 14, 2019

      She was fed a lie by producer Carlos King and repeated it. Carlos was fired too but because he is behind the scenes it was not talked about. The problem with Phaedra is she is quite boring and while her one-liners are cute she has not delivered the kind of manufactured drama her peers Nene, Kenya, and Kim brought.

      With that said I think Bravo is being racist in keeping white housewife Vicki on RHOC as a friend of the show when she did the same thing as Phaedra….put out drug rumors a cast member and be super boring on the show.

      • Erica July 14, 2019

        What are we in the second grade? It doesn’t matter where it came from it should have never been said especially on national television… she knew better & if she had any kind of decency she would’ve told Kandi what was being said about her

      • Jasmine July 14, 2019

        These reality shows do not hire people who have ‘decency’. It is a double edged sword. If you have decency u either don’t get hired in the first place or u get fired off the show quickly like Deshawn. Phaedra at least said it off camera and not on camera and I thought Kandi blew it way out of proportion.

        Portia only ASKED Kandi if the rumor was true. She NEVER ACCUSED Kandi of anything but as usual Kandi’s understanding of things is over dramatic. Similarly, when Kim stated Nene had roaches crawling around her house with video evidence, Kandi understood that as a racist attack because “black people live in roach infested houses in the projects” even though i strongly believe:

        1. All black people did not grow up in the projects; and

        2. Kim’s comment was not racist at all. If u are filming a reality show in ur house u should have cleaned ur house or gotten an exterminator prior to filming. Race has nothing to do with sanitary conditions

      • Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers July 14, 2019

        TROLLmine I AGREE

    Someone who’s actually happy doesn’t have to mention it ALL THE TIME! “I’m very happy right now”, “you see this glow.” Girl like clearly you feel insecure about something

  6. Jay July 13, 2019

    Wtf does she mean she must’ve really impacted her life!? Girl you made up a whole ass rumor and attempted to defame her by saying she drugs ppl & r*** them! That would impact anyones life… As u should know! Considering your an “Attorney” and all right?? Girl bye!

    Phaedra should have never left. Kandi should have been a better friend to her while she was going through all the BS with her ex. He was such a mess disrespectful to her and their kids for years, yet Kandi chose to give him support (sided with him) and not Phaedra for some reason? Thats when and where she and Pheadras friendship changed! What if Kandis husband pulled 1/2 of what Phaedras did? Maybe Kandi should consider that and apologize for being such a sh*t friend? I do know without a doubt, myself and others will stop watching if KM returns! She instigated so much mess from day 1 she was on show. NO INTEREST IN OR ABOUT HER! BOUNCE!

      I wouldn’t have a problem at all with Kandi taking a break. I find her boring, and her behavior last season was atrocious.

      People sometimes forget that Kandi and Phaedra were both being extremely nasty towards each other all through seasons 8-9. Phaedra repeated a nasty rumor OFF CAMERA, but Kandi and her mother said some equally dangerous things about Phaedra on camera. In the wake of Apollo’s legal troubles, Phaedra was being investigated too. She was likely called in for questioning, had her taxes audited, had the comings and goings at her house monitored, had her business affairs reviewed, and possibly even more. Phaedra would not have revealed any of this publicly, but I’m sure they were about 2 inches off her rear.

      So, I think Phaedra should come back, and Kandi should either confront their issues or take a break from the show. Phaedra’s actions are STILL impacting the show, as the constant drama between Kandi and Porsha last seasons had it roots in the drama from season 9.

    That’s my least favorite TGJ post themes. I hate these pseudo celeb b******. Stop post about them.

  10. Robert Davis July 14, 2019

    Would love to see you come back you are a class act such a lady and you don’t find that very much anymore

  11. Evelyn July 14, 2019

    Let her return and let Kandi leave if she wants too. Kandi is everything and has no loyalty to know one

  12. Cinder July 14, 2019

    Pls dont bring that nastyass b**** back

  13. Paula Dickens July 14, 2019

    Bring Phaedra back, she brings excitement to the show.

  14. Loretta Young July 14, 2019

    Well my opinion if she is in a good place in her life she should keep that door closes ❤️? Amen

  15. Gloria Lawson July 15, 2019

    In my opinion Phaedra was not relevant on the show. NeNe Leakes can hang up her Peach as well!

  16. Gloria Lawson July 15, 2019

    Phaedra Parks was not relevant to the show. What was her storyline?

  17. Norma Ochoa July 15, 2019

    Phrada is so cool with her shade . She has the type of shade that can touch a nerve. Surely everyone knows a reality show is filmed for entertainment. Kandi can surely get over in three years., especially since her Kandi Coated#s**#shows#escapades###whatever.
    Hurry and get Phrada back.
