Phaedra Parks went out with a bang on Season 9 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She was caught in a lie about Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams that was so bad she wasn’t asked to return to the show.
That hasn’t stopped her RHOA fans from wishing Phaedra would return to the Bravo series. After all, she did bring the drama and quite a few laughs.
With all of the RHOA casting rumors floating around over the summer, one of the biggest that wasn’t about Kenya Moore had to do with the possible return of Phaedra Parks for Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Would production really invite Phaedra back after the explosive Season 9 reunion? And if she did return, how would Kandi Burruss feel about it? After all, the nasty rumor was about her and Todd supposedly wanting to drug and rape Porsha — a rumor that could have been damaging to both their reputations had it not been refuted.
In any case, it looks like Phaedra Parks will not be returning to RHOA for Season 11 to hold a peach or even just to show her face. Back in August, as rumors heated up that Phaedra could come back, she shut them down herself.
“You know, I have closed that chapter, and I’ve moved on to new things,” Phaedra told Us Weekly. “I’m now with WE tv and I’m very happy and very excited about the opportunities that they’ve presented to me. So, you know, that’s a done deal at the moment. I never say never, but you know, I’ve moved on to greener pastures.”
It turns out Phaedra did make a move to WeTV, joining the cast of Braxton Family Values, but she hasn’t yet had her own show.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
