Is the self-proclaimed Southern Belle on her way back to the shady cookout that is the Real Housewives of Atlanta?
Before the ‘door was closed’ after she would gladly libel her castmate Kandi Burruss with felonious accusations of sex dungeons, druggings, and attempted rape. Phaedra Parks certainly made some memorable television moments during her stint on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Seriously, who could ever forget that time she decided to taunt her foe Kenya Moore telling her that “she spends her weekends peddling through sperm banks, looking through catalogs,” searching for a donor who “needed 10 dollars to get him a medium-sized pizza, so he ejaculated in a cup so you could have a kid.” In today’s climate that would probably get Parks “cancelled,” however, it seems Bravo just may be willing to give this southern belle a second chance.
According to an exclusive report from the good folks over at LoveBScott (who are often spot on with their RHOA casting news), Ms Parks may be on her way back to our shady Sunday’s in some capacity. As told by B Scott, Parks is vying for a return as a “Friend of the Wives,” a slot usually reserved for Bravo’s B-Team. It’d be a demotion from her prior role as a main cast member but we’re sure with all the drama her return could bring that her status could quickly change.
As many Housewives fans should be aware, Parks’s long hiatus from the franchise is due, largely, to Kandi Burruss’s refusal to work or film with her. Can you blame her? It’s hard to ignore the glaring rape accusations Parks deployed against Burruss during her final season. Burruss even told the folks over at People Mag in 2019 that, as far as she’s concerned, Parks is “canceled.”
“I just find it very sad that she has no remorse for what she did. She didn’t see anything wrong with that. I feel like if anybody did what she did to me to her sons in the future, she would have a totally different outlook on the situation. I just think she should just rethink it. If she doesn’t that’s cool. She’s canceled in my book anyway,”
Although she’s been willing to confirm if she’d even return for season 13 of the show, NeNe Leakes however has been publicly campaigning for Phaedra’s return amid her ongoing feud with Kandi, unsurprisingly. What do you guys think? Would you be here for Parks’ return to the show? Honestly, I say bring all the OG’s back (Kim, Sheree, Phaedra, etc), it’d be an interesting spark back to the franchise.
