MTO News broke the news yesterday - that Phaedra Parks will be re-joining the cast of Atlanta Housewives. According to MULTIPLE sources close to production, Phaedra has already begun filming scenes for the upcoming season.
Phaedra was summarily FIRED from the show two season's ago - when Kandi Burrress caught her in a lie. At the time Kandi was 100% AGAINST Phaedra returning to the show.
But now MTO News confirmed that Kandi is NO LONGER BLOCKING Phaedra from returning. Our insider explained, "Kandi still doesn't like or trust Phaedra. But she's willing to film with her if and when [Phaedra] returns."
And Phaedra's been staying in TIP TOP SHAPE while she was off camera. MTO News obtained photos of Phaedra taken this weekend - showing her looking great. She actually looked so good, she almost upstages Atlanta Housewife co-star Porsha Williams
People Magazine summarizes why we haven't seen Phaedra in a while, in case you forgot:
Parks came under fire last year after admitting she spread inflammatory accusations to Williams that their RHOA costar Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker had planned on drugging Williams and their mutual friend Shamea Morton in order to take advantage of them sexually.
Williams also faced backlash for repeatings Parks’ accusations throughout season 9 because she believed the claims had come directly from Burruss.
In the final episode of the reunion, Parks apologized for spreading the gossip.
“I repeated it because I heard it,” she said. “I repeated what someone told me. I shouldn’t have repeated it. I screwed up … I’m sorry.”
