Phaedra Parks Open to ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Return

Two years after Phaedra Parks’ controversial departure from Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA), the former peach says she’s open to returning to the series.

Parks shared her thoughts on heading back to the small screen during an interview with US Weekly. “I never say never because that is very final and you never know what could happen. I am very happy. I am living my best life. I did for eight years,” she said.

Opening up about her “interesting experience” on the reality show, Parks added, “I wouldn’t trade it and I don’t regret it. But I think life is about evolving. That was almost a decade of my life.”

Parks’ former castmate NeNe Leakes was adamant about her returning to the show. She wrote, “I gotta lot of gifts but this 1 takes the cake @phaedraparks #fixitjesus#RHOA #comeonbackP #phaephae#bdayturnup,” as the caption for her birthday celebration in December.

Highlighting the experiences she shared on the show, Parks said, “My children were born on the show. I went on as a newlywed. Got divorced. Now I have a new boyfriend in my life and I am very happy.”

She confirmed news of her relationship with Chicago radio personality DJ Tone Kapone last New Year’s Eve.

Parks was allegedly responsible for starting rumors that RHOA star Kandi Burruss planned to drug and take advantage of cast member Porsha Williams sexually. She was booted from the series after the reunion show for Season Nine.
