Phaedra Parks wants to move on from the past.

Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum Phaedra Parks’ departure from the show was very controversial. At the Season 9 reunion, Porsha Williams made some explosive accusations. She said Phaedra told her that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker wanted to drug her and have their way with her in their *** dungeon. To no surprise, Kandi was very emotional after the revelation was made. She strongly believed that Phaedra was trying to ruin her life with harmful lies. And when Phaedra was asked to explain her actions, she didn’t have much to say. It was also reported that the cast was so upset with Phaedra that no one wanted to film with her. So Phaedra was not asked to return.

After all the drama went down, Kandi has made it clear she won’t remain on the show if Phaedra is ever asked back. Interestingly enough, Phaedra has said she doesn’t want to return to RHOA. And when she was asked about her departure on “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip,” Phaedra didn’t want to talk about it.

So she received some backlash from fans. And they questioned why she wouldn’t use the opportunity to tell her side of the story. Well, Phaedra addressed this in a recent interview.

  1. If Phadrea can shut down topics she doesn’t want to discuss why can’t the others?
    Point, Kandi has made a lot of money from it. Kandi is all so the one who keep talking about the rumor on camera. Hmmmm

  2. You know, NBC Universal , the parent of Bravo, has done allot of public investigations on their employees. As a matter of fact, all organizations have in the past too. So I wonder why a investigation was not conducted at the time. Phaedra was also still practicing law, i think, I wonder why the georgia state bar did not investigate any unethical actions made. Seems like there was another party in the mix. That other party was likely not an employee of NBCUNIVERSAL, the parent of Bravo as Phaedra and Khandi are. Since the blame fell on the other party there wasn’t enough to do anything and was out of NBC/BRAVO’s scope. A scandal like that is parallel to allegations made to famous about past news commentators on the network who had to leave the company and are still not back. NBC/Bravo would not be working with phaedra , she wouldn’t be book and paid, and her reputation would have sunk with executives in the industry . No one was to hire a liability especially in this post me too, cancel culture environment. Kandi would have major evidence of defamation of her name, and most know defamation cases are hard to prove especially for public figures.This has to be the best storyline in the history of Bravo. Many ate it up at face value. The main parties enjoy brand recognition. Technically phaedra didn’t even bring it up. Bravo and kandi, but mainly kandi, made life to this even though it happened so many years to grab people’s attention and strike emotions to be more invested. So many other things to talk about on a marketing campaign for a show, interest was needed. I guess I have an unpopular opinion. This is all entertainment anyway lol. Looking at everything in a more critical way.
