For fans wondering if Phaedra Parks is returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta after she was fired last season, it looks like the Southern Belle is not coming back anytime soon. Phaedra was kicked off the Bravo reality series last year, after she spread a false rumor about co-star Kandi Burruss and her husband.
On the reunion episode, the 43-year-old attorney was caught in the mega lie, in which she claimed that Kandi drugged cast member Porsha Williams. She was promptly fired by Andy Cohen, who called it a “megawatt lie.” But have the RHOA stars forgiven Phaedra?
We don’t think so. “Phaedra has been talking to some of the women of RHOA again but has not filmed any scenes so far,” a source told Us Weekly. “They are still filming so anything could happen and there is room for a cameo but she has not returned and obviously still isn’t part of the cast.”
The insider also confirmed that Phaedra has not filmed anything for the show. “She pulled some stunts on me so I know what she’s capable of,” NeNe Leakes, who made her grand return to the franchise, said on the Season 10 premiere. Andy also confirmed that Phaedra was not making a return.
“The question that we look at now with Phaedra is, when the reunion ended, none of the other women wanted to have anything to do with her. So that’s what you have to look at,” Andy told E! earlier this year. “How do you shoot a show about a group of friends when no one is speaking to one of the friends?”
However, that doesn’t mean fans are not missing the controversial mother-of-two. “If they are going to talk about @PhaedraParks so much, they should have just put her on this season,” one fan tweeted before another added, “@Bravotv @Andy imma need you to bring @PhaedraParks back for the reunion and season 11 okay thank you #RHOA.” Fix it Jesus!
