Former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks reveals her experience with depression after her departure from the show in 2017.
Phaedra Parks also shares her intent to help others by unveiling her mental health journey in a new venture.
In a book that’s both a memoir and a guide to meditation, Phaedra hopes to share affirmations that helped her remain positive during her struggle.
“When I left ‘Housewives, it was a very dark time,” Phaedra admits in an interview with Page Six.
She explains that she experienced depression, struggled with many emotions, and cited The Real Housewives of Atlanta as the cause for her suffering.
“Housewives can give you PTSD. I think anyone that’s been on it for over four to five years will experience some PTSD because it can be very traumatic,” Phaedra claims.
