Phaedra Parks Officially In Talks To Return For Season 12 Of RHOA, Inside Her Storyline Possibilities
Could Phaedra Parks be getting her peach back? Two years after producers fired Parks from the Real Housewives of Atlanta because she spread a nasty rumor about Kandi Burruss , a new report claims that Phaedra is in talks to return to the popular Bravo show for Season 12.
Producers fired Parks after she claimed Burruss wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams. However, according to Radar Online, NeNe Leakes lobbied for Parks’ to return to RHOA , and this has led to the Atlanta lawyer meeting with the network.
“Phaedra has a meeting with Bravo execs to talk about coming back to the show,” says an insider. “Kandi will be so upset. She wanted Phaedra fired after she made up that lie that she wanted to drug Porsha and rape her. But Kandi has already signed her contract for the next season, so she is going to have to film with her.”
Parks has a few potential storylines if she does return. Her ex-husband Apollo Nida will soon be getting an early release from prison, and she has moved on with her new boyfriend, Chicago radio DJ Tone Kapone. The couple recently went public with their relationship, and they star on Dish Nation together.
An insider says that Parks could easily bring the drama to RHOA, and she would be Leakes’ only friend on the show. In order to get her peach back, the source says Parks is going to have to cause a lot of trouble.
The insider added that Parks will get to know Eva Marcille and Tanya Sam, and since she’s stayed friends with Williams, she will fit right back in. Everyone will be happy to have Parks back - except Burruss - and the source says she will bring “a whole new level of craziness.”
During a recent interview, Parks said she was open to returning to RHOA, and she never says never because it is too final. She explained that she is currently living her best life and is very happy, and she doesn’t regret her eight years on the show.
Parks called starring on RHOA an “interesting experience” that’s important to her because her children were born on the show. She also started RHOA as a newlywed, and then eventually got divorced. The mom of two got the boot from the show just after the Season 9 reunion.
News of Parks possible return comes amid rumors that Kenya Moore will also be coming back, but Shamari Devoe is calling it quits after one season.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo later this year.
