Phaedra Parks Speaks At Essence Festival — Plays Victim & Blames #RHOA Editing For Creating Rape & Drug Lie! (Video)

Posted on Jul 2 2017 - 10:27am by Avigail

Fired Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks resurfaced this weekend at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana.

As AllAboutTheTea.com readers know, the shamed attorney made her controversial exit from the Bravo reality series, after it was revealed she concocted the lie that Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker intended to drug and rape Porsha Williams.

The 43-year-old mother of two spoke at the event’s Empowerment Experience — a session designed to inspire and uplift the community. During her panel, Parks chatted with Essence editor Patrick Henry Bass, and skillfully portrays herself as a black woman, who has been victimized by the power of  television editing. 

According to Parks, black people are often portrayed as one thing, especially those who consume salacious reality TV shows, but are more than that. In Phaedra’s own words,

“Black women are mosaic. We are diverse in nature.”

She downplays her role in creating the drug/rape rumor and paints herself as a survivor of an evil regime (Bravo), that used her to entertain viewers. 

“Television is a tough business. And the purpose of television is obviously to entertain and sometimes it’s at the expense of the people, who are doing the entertaining.” She tells the audience of mostly African-American women. “It’s a very hard platform to obviously maintain certain things on, because it is… a platform where they have the power to edit and make things appear as though, they’re one thing, when it’s something totally different. But you can’t live with regrets.”

She continues: “The size of your problem is sometimes indicative of the magnitude of your destiny!”

Her role on the reality show was often southern belle, queen of the quips and the shadiest (peach) tree. But many viewers often labeled her a liar and a fraud.

“I know that I am bigger than an hour show. I’m bigger than 12-minutes that you see me on the screen. I’m bigger than one day, that you’ve watched me because I’ve been living over 40-years.”

Later in the segment, Phaedra lets the attendees know that regardless of being fired from RHOA, God has done so much for her.

“No matter what happens, if God never does anything else for me, I have three houses, a plethora of cars, two children, great parents, I’m proud and beautiful.”

After the RHOA Reunion scandal exploded, Porsha revealed that the two are no longer on speaking terms. Porsha, who was best friends with Phaedra, broke down in tears in the finale when it was revealed that she was used as a pawn in Phaedra’s feud with Kandi.

As exclusively reported, plans are underway for Phaedra to film a final scene during season 10 with Porsha. Porsha is the only RHOA cast member willing to film with the attorney. Phaedra is expected to apologize to her former friend and have a more formal departure from the show. Although she apologized to Kandi during the reunion, Phaedra only attempted to repair her friendship with Porsha.

      I wish her well, at least she didn’t just give up. She rising up and living her life.

          Actually. Sociopath is definitely who Faka Parks is.

            She is. I wonder when her day will come…

            There’s always gonna be a ton of ish purculating behind those eyes. How it manifests will be a sick surprise for her next victim.

      • The Champ

        You’re too kind Brendah 😊

  • Trippinhhard

    Essence isn’t Black owned anymore, I do think they are all bigger than what we see.. If Vickie can have a successful business than anything is possible with hard work and our Heavenly Father.. That sound bite became the whole season, so none of them had much going on, that they wanted to show..

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Always the logical one. If that mess hadn’t have happened, what would have been the main SL?!?

      • Trippinhhard

        Ikr

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Are you excited for the new Southern Charm, New Orleans?!?

          • Trippinhhard

            Wi didn’t know they had one coming, I didn’t watch the other one.. I might know someone on it.. When is it coming in?

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I thought it said coming in August but I heard it from the other room & by the time I ran to see it, the commercial was over.

          • Trippinhhard

            Okay I’m going to check on Bravo, might know someone.. I can’t fathom old money families wants that type of attention.. Unless they have something to sell.. They don’t make enough money for everyone to know your business.. Then people here don’t mind Tee your so called secrets..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I think it’s going to be very interesting. I hope it’s old money, families that go back centuries there. Not some imports that don’t have any roots.

          • Trippinhhard

            IKR I hope so too, I’m going to call my oldest brother.. He taught at a private catholic all boy school for 25yrs and he know New Orleans..lol

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Oh!! The plot thickens. LOL!!
            Would you have done the show if you were approached?!?
            I know your family has deep roots in LA.

          • Trippinhhard

            Oh HELL NO there’s no amount money for me to that. My son was accepted on the real world a decade ago…I read the contract 20+ pages and they can portray you and they dig into your family background, etc.. It’s an ironclad contact and the money is a joke.. I told him if you do this I will disown you for life.. They were only going to pay him 20K..That’s a joke and they make sure they party and stay drunk, half naked, trimming everyone they care, all caught on tape for the world to see.. They put people in the house they know won’t get along..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            What?!? So if you make it all the way to the end, you get 20k?!?
            That is not nearly enough to put yourself thru 3 months of being confined to a house where all of your movements are filmed.

          • Trippinhhard

            That’s all you get and embarrassment for a long time.. Kelly received less than that last year on the OC last season.. I think she’s getting 60K this season , from what I read….

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            LMAO!! She got the least of them all. I understand that. She was the new jack, but she was put thru the ringer.
            I only watched it from the restaurant scene where she called Shannon a C U Next Tuesday on but she really did suffer.

          • Trippinhhard

            From what I read and the commercials, she held her own.. the first show she came out swinging and never looked back.. She and her husband needs to just divorce, because that child is going to be damaged from all their fights.. Passion is necessary, but they are worse than Adrienne and Paul was to me..

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Samra! I actually think the women are WORSE than their TV personas. I’ve read blind items and other blogs which reveal how these women really behave in REAL and it isn’t inspiring.

      • Trippinhhard

        None is an inspiration to me at all.. NONE is really who they say at they are..

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Someone please hand this damaged, angry, delusional, and sad soul a shovel, because she’s just digging her hole deeper and deeper. Bravo/NBC/Universal would be wise to cut all ties with this loon. She’s a liability at this point.

  • Deanna777

    I would be interested to know if she still has any clients left. Knowing what she’s capable of, there is no way I would continue paying for her services.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Deanna! Something tells me she has very few or no clients. TBH I don’t think she is interested in being an attorney anymore.

      • Deanna777

        Hi Mars! Happy Sunday to you!

        • Marsbars09

          You too honey!

  • Sandra Oh

    I guess all those emails to Andy begging for her job back didn’t work lol. Bye Fakedra don’t let the door hit you on the donkeey’s bootay on your way out.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Phaedra should hold the door open for the rest of the trashy hags to follow her. : )

      • Sandra Oh

        Yas please do! I wouldn’t miss any of them actually except maybe for SheBroke by SheRay but she does amuse me to no end.

        • MidwestMiddie

          : )
          The parade out of the door could be a ratings winner……imagine the outfits, the “walks,” the facial expressions and the under the breath mutterings. LOL We could finally have some ENTERTAINMENT.

          • Marsbars09

            LMAO @ the visual! One trifling heifer following the other off the franchise.

  • Deardorff

    Interesting how Phaedra listed all her material belongings before she mentioned her children and parents of god’s blessings upon each her.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Speaks volumes of who she is. Phaedra is a devil.

    • Karoline

      Exactly how I interpreted what she said. It irks me. Like God rewards them with material things because they somehow deserve it. Ridiculous.

    • Marsbars09

      A lot of people have been saying that!
      GMTA!

    • the underground train

      I thought the exact same thing. First thing out of my mouth would have been thank God I have happy and healthy children.

  • MidwestMiddie

    My word ………….just take a minute & think about the women Bravo showcases on the Housewives Shows……not just Phaedra. They are not examples of intelligent, thoughtful, hardworking and beautiful upper class women. They’re takers, not givers. They’re egomaniacs with complete indifference to the rest of mankind.
    Women everywhere should be furious with Bravo for promoting these HAGS.

    • Hipster Doofus

      I agree that the majority of these women are exactly what you describe, with the exception of at least LVP. I have the utmost respect for her and her efforts regarding Yulin. She gave an amazing interview a couple nights ago about it and it was very informative. She is the only one I can really think of that uses her platform to make a difference in what she is passionate about.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Agree. LVP is the exception but it is time for her to have the integrity to walk away from Bravo’s demeaning of women.
        I understood her reason for staying on last season but she’s lost my respect by coming back……again.

        • Hipster Doofus

          That is a good point. This show does nothing for her, but it will tear her reputation down if she continues to remain on it. Especially being associated with Rinna. If she left, that show would completely fall apart, for me anyways. I certainly would stop watching. It is hard to tolerate already with Rinna, Eileen, and Erika.

      • Marsbars09

        Agreed.

    • Marsbars09

      ITA MM. While Fake was spewing how “hard” it is to appear on the Real Housewives franchise, I was thinking, “If it’s so “tough” to be on these shows, why are you on it?” Simple answer: these women crave the attention, spotlight and the paycheck that goes along with it.
      I don’t know if you know about the Essence Festival, but the venue is primarily to uplift and showcase African-Americans who do positive things for the African-American community. There is nothing uplifting nor positive about RHOA. Unfortunately the cast depicts the most horrible stereotypes for African-American women. I don’ t know what the organizers were thinking inviting the cast to participate.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Hey Mars! : )
        Yes, I am familiar with the Essence Festival and do not understand why Kenya and Phaedra were invited guests. NBC must be one of the venue’s sponsors.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I love this post, Marsie. But let’s keep it 100… These women are exactly who the audience wants to see.
        I am sure their were poets, preachers, teachers that could have been showcased, but they weren’t.
        I have seen two episodes of Black Girls Rock. The one honored Shirley Ceasar, Angela Davis & the likes. The next one I saw honored Misty Copeland & Michelle Obama made an appearance. That is what I consider inspirational. Not HW.

        • the underground train

          Now that sounds entertaining and inspiring

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            It was. Shirley Ceaser had me in tears. I haven’t seen any advertisements for it in a while.
            I wonder if they still do the show?!?

        • Marsbars09

          Hi Bette! I guess I and a few others are in the minority.
          I’ve posted sporadically throughout the years that Bravo should have maintained a balanced, well rounded cast of women from various walks of life and personalities. This would include the professions you mentioned. But no, Bravo wants to feature the worst of it’s kind for the sake of “entertainment” and ratings.
          The buffoonery we currently see is what is preventing this franchise from evolving.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Preach, Marsie. The show may have evolved but not in a good way.
            As long as the ratings are high, they will continue to show the buffoonery. They are all about money & ratings =money.
            Bravo couldn’t care less about these women. These women should have a little bit more integrity but they worship the money & crave the spotlight. Reputation be damned.

          • Marsbars09

            So true.

          • melanctha

            Phaedra was the the only one focused on doing things within the community and for that she was called phony and racist. She is a professional woman who has passed the bar and maintains a law practice. She was disparaged and called a phony for her real life successes. She was stalked by a bunch of hood rat baby mamma’s who’s only interest was exposing her baby’s due date, which was beyond rude. Phaedra is better off not associating with these guttersnipes. It is unlikely she would deal with them in real life.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Phaedra started off lying on the show, so everyone considered her a liar.
            I do not know how it proved that she was in on Alpo’s crimes & everything she said was a lie but that is the way plenty of viewers saw it.
            For me, I thought she was the funniest one & I never saw her purposely going out of her way to cause trouble. But the sex dungeon story was just too much.
            She got caught up trying to get revenge on Kandi & took it to a whole other level. Phaedra should have just sat back & let Kandi & her crew get the backlash for all the dirt they threw on her name. She would have come out smelling like a rose, but instead she made a fool of herself.

  • Karoline

    So God has something to do with her 3 houses and plethora of cars? I think if there is a God, he isn’t going around handing out material possesions. I can’t stand it when Kim Z, and others think they are blessed by God because they can buy things. Its strange to me.

    • Cassandra Dreme

      Or winning football games. People seem to think God is a football fan.

      • HearWhatISay

        stop it! LOL

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Don’t forget the artists. I LOL everytime the rappers with the crudest lyrics start off by thanking God for them winning a Grammy.

    • Marsbars09

      Thank you! I just posted a similar comment. I do not consider material possessions blessings. Now we know what’s really important to Fake.

    • HearWhatISay

      That you, she sounds like an idiot.

    • GetReal2014

      It’s so dumb and defies logic to think that God would be impressed with man-made things. But many people do fall for it. They think that having things equates to blessings. Not their souls.

  • Marsbars09

    I can’t stand looking at that pig. She’s still blaming others (producers) of how she is depicted on TV and what she said about Kandi.
    As Fake was counting her blessings, she sure threw in her three houses and plethora of cars. The hard part is how she is going to maintain it with her main source of income depleted.
    We’ll see how Fake evolves without RHOA.

    • rasta

      The hardest part is the drama her sons will endure. First from dad and now from mom.They are such intelligent little guys. I’m sure Ayden can go on internet and read about mom’s debacle. I sincerely hope he doesn’t read my posts but hey, mommy is a plether of covfefe kerfafle.

      • Marsbars09

        Yes. Those poor babies. 🙁
        Right now the boys are too young to know or realize that their parents have placed humiliation and shame into their lives. I just cringe at the thought of older kids and even adults saying something to them about their parents. Hopefully Fake and her parents will prepare the boys of what cruel people might say to them.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    I am surprised she wasn’t booed off of the stage.

    • HearWhatISay

      LOL – so true

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I thought I read that Xscape was also supposed to perform there. Perhaps, it’s another expo.

        • Marsbars09

          I believe they are.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            They also did the BET awards. Did you see it?

          • Marsbars09

            No I did not. Did they perform?

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Yes. They performed. I didn’t watch the show but that’s what I heard.

          • rasta

            I saw it….they sang. Kandi looked great. And then…they sang, and um…yep.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            BAHAHAHA!! Spill the tea, Rasta. Spill it.

          • rasta

            **backing out of the room**

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            No!! You are so wrong for that. Rastafari!!

          • rasta

            Why do I have a feeling you saw it? LOL!!!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I didn’t. I’m sitting here like aww man, now I am going to have to pull it up.

          • rasta

            OH NOOOO! You might wanna save that search for something more..ummm.. palatable?

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Pretty lackluster season performance, but Ralph from New Edition isn’t aging well.
            I feel bad for saying that but he shocked me when the camera panned in on him.

          • Trippinhhard

            Go look it up on tube, it’s nothing to talk about..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I just watched it. I used to like Who Can I Run To.
            The blonde one has an amazing voice… That’s all I got.

          • Trippinhhard

            Yes she does, they all could at one time.. Don’t beat me but Kandi didn’t sound so hot to me.. I was flipping channels channels and they did a tribute to George Michael and it was touching.. Those shows are too long for me..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I thought Kandi sound awful & Tiny just phoned it in. Kandi may think she can sing but those two sisters got her licked.
            I sometimes catch the Grammys but I can not sit thru a whole awards show. I always end up channel surfing.

          • Trippinhhard

            That was one of the reasons why the broke up.. Along with a host of other problems, including sleeping with producers, managers, writers and etc..I don’t think they’ve been practicing enough for to hit all these sold out shows they have scheduled… IMO

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Sold out shows?!? They would be lucky if they sellout at a bar.
            They won’t be selling out Madison Square Garden or any other stadiums. Sorry. Just don’t see it.

          • Trippinhhard

            That’s what was reported, I’m sure it’s not large places such as Madison Square or anything in that category…BET Awards was large and I don’t know how large the crowds at the Essence Festival was…

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Good point.

          • Trippinhhard

            😎😎😎😎

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            It is very rare that a group breaks up & they all go on to be successful solo artists.
            Usually the lead singer goes on without them but it is rare that they all do well. These women went on to write Grammy award winning songs but their solo projects all flop.
            Bey & Destiny’s Child is the exception. But look at Justin Timberlake. That guy is huge but what is his group members doing?!?

          • Trippinhhard

            Your post is all true, can’t add to it..IMO

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            TY, Trippin. I thought of another group… New Edition. They all went on to be successful. Bobby Brown, Johnnie Gill, Ralph Tresvant & Bell, Biv, DeVoe. They did very well.

          • Trippinhhard

            New Edition was honored at the BET awards, they did a very good job.. They also had the kids that starred in their movie on stage with them..
            BB/D did great in their own, Bobby did also, Ralph and Jonnie did well also.
            That girl is poison, go on utube to check it out..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            See?!? All the great stuff happens when I don’t watch. Had I tuned in, it would have been a snoozefest.

          • Trippinhhard

            I was watching “Power”, I had that in the corner on mute.. I have to go check to see if they only did that one song for the tribute to him.. His music and him were both beautiful was a pretty man…ummmmm

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            You know better than I do that the children know when the parents are having problems.
            No matter how much adults try to conceal, children are smarter than we think. When your mom is sad, you know it. When your dad is mad, you can feel the tension.
            Then you have the parents that discuss adult situations infront of their kids. That is crazy to me.

          • Trippinhhard

            They feel the pain, they know from small what’s going on.. That’s why I never sugar coated nothing to them.. Oh my son knew when my ex had a heart attack in the hospital, and they way his sister tried her best to start shit.. He saw a person he didn’t know, but I know this for sure, no one else will ever put their finger in my face.. He knew if his daddy didn’t change after that, I was GONE
            and my daughter I was sick of his family and was sick of him, not doing what he said he was going to do.. It wasn’t a surprise when we called them and told them.. Oh he was MADD at me and he’s still angry with me, but I don’t care.. Be a man, you made a promise to God and you never kept that promise.. It was better to divorce him, then to hurt his family.. Because somebody was going to know where they were for All Saints day.. This is not a joke, it’s the honest truth and yes it hurts like the dickens, but its life..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Let me tell you… I woke up one morning & all these trailers were lined up infront of my house.
            One time it was because they were shooting Power & the next time it was because they were shooting Homeland.
            I thought I had escaped all of that nonsense at my other place, but no.

          • Trippinhhard

            Girl I love me some power, my niece told me about it and I binge one day and watched the first 2 or 3 seasons.. I watched it while we been blogging and I’m searing some of tails to out I never the slow cooker.. Randy made it home safely and caught up on his work…lol

          • melanctha

            Kandi can not sing. Her voice is actually grating. I could never understand why she is considered a voice.

    • melanctha

      Love Phaedra and believe she was set up and that Portia threw her under the bus. She wouldn’t do better hood rat so that made her a phoney and a liar. Do her children have to ask their baby daddy to sign their birth certificates? As a black women, I get it. You go girl. I won’t be watching those ratchet bitches . They have lost all credibillity. Thug it out girls!

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Hey there, Melanctha!! It’s been a while, GF.
        You know Phaedra was my girl too. I will miss her own the show but she made her bed.
        Yes, Porsha threw her under the bus but it’s all about keeping that peach. They would all do anything to keep that Bravo check.

        • melanctha

          Hi Bette, it has been a while GF. You know, I believe she repeated what she was told to the subject of the gossip. That is what any real friend would do. I think those women are trash, especially Kandi. I’ll be around but not watching RHOA. They judged a woman who never said anything on air for someone else’s gossip. Good thing is, Apollo stirred up all that BS about the divorce and now he won’t be able to try and attach her salary, which was what he stated he was after.

            I agree. Phaedra never said it on camera. Porsha did, but for some reason, Phaedra is the only one being persecuted for it.
            I am also happy that that con artist outsmarted himself. Let his fiancée work for his ass. Phaedra doesn’t owe him jack.

  • HearWhatISay

    She sounds so stupid.
    I have cars, 3 houses, etc.
    WTH does that mean? Apollo help you with 3 homes and cars. Having material things does not make a good or honest person.
    I hope her 15 minutes of fame is up soon.

    • Marsbars09

      I think it’s coming to a close.

  • HearWhatISay

    Win a Case!

    • Marsbars09

      I don’t think that’s ever going to happen again.

  • Marsbars09

    I believe all of the housewives appeared at the Essence Festival this year. I don’t know if Nene, Kim Z., Porsha and Sheree attended.
    I saw a video clip of Fake and Cynthia kee-keeing together at the Festival. I thought, “Hmmm….that’s interesting. Didn’t Cynthia refuse to film with Fake? What in the hell are they doing having a lively chat with one another?”
    The Essence Festival is supposed to be a positive, uplifting event geared towards African-Americans. To me RHOA does not fit the bill to be part of such an extraordinary event. Almost from day one the women have been depicted in the most awful stereotypes and they just keep going with it. NONE of these women are anything positive to look up to.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Not a one. We all have ones that we like more than others, but they certainly aren’t role models or anything anyone should aspire to be like.

    • Authentic

      Right Mars! Beginning with Nene’s tagline season 1 saying she IS the Jones’s…..then quickly evicted from 1st rented house she filmed in….really? Guess she was waiting on that 1st Bravo check which didn’t come fast enough. And poor Cynthia spent her last $30,000 on her wedding. $30,000 is not supermodel money. Sorry, it’s not. Next the BH chain showed us money!

  • Anne Mckinney-page

    Lawyers are the lowest form of life on the planet… just above child molesters, and animal abusers. So, it was editing that made her look like she was mimicking oral sex at that table… accusing Kandi, and others of sexual activities? And it was editing that made her tell all those lies about a sex dungeon, and rape? PUH-LEAZE. Fakera, it is time to sashay away. We are all sick of your sh**.

    • rasta

      Agree.

  • Bobbi

    Only problem with Phaedra’s explanation is that her life on AND off screen has been portrayed as a dirty filthy mess starting as a young adult. It amazes me that no one in Phaedra’s real life -a respectable professional peer has stepped forward to vouch for Phaedra’s character off the show. For instance, Kenya’s peers have either glowing reviews or have at least said the reality tv Kenya is not the same Kenya they know in real life. Kandi, Kenya and Cyn have all had positive things said so you could rationalize they may be different off the show. Phaedra has absolutely no defense and still not showing one ounce of remorse for the role she played in the mess this season. Forever the victim though. Bye, girl, byyyee!

    • rasta

      Wait a minute now. Bobby Brown, the client she brags about DID step up. He said “I wish Ms. Parks would keep my name out her mouf! She’s the reason I lost all my cases!”

      • Bobbi

        Exactly! Lmao! Her most famous client stepped up and took her head off. It just doesn’t get worse than that.
        disclaimer: SHE is the one who bragged about BB so, no one can take a thing away from him in regards to his credibility in ref to her. LOL!

        • rasta

          LMAO!!!

        • GetReal2014

          Bragging about Bobby sure bit her in the behind, didn’t it?

          • Bobbi

            Girl he took a chunk out of her. She’s missing a whole butt cheek. Lol

          • GetReal2014

            Ha ha ha ha.

            And just think, that was during down time and he still saw reason to drag her fake azz. What if that had been after what she did to Kandi?

            Go Bobby, bring some more realnesss. That phony has been dishonest since Day One. There is nothing good about her.

          • Bobbi

            Yesssirrrr, and Phaedra didn’t dare open her mouth either did she? What happened to the shade Queen on that one?
            She shut down quicker than a dollar store after a fire sale. Lol.

          • GetReal2014

            Nope. Phaedra’s “shade” only comes when she has back up. When she doesn’t she’s quieter than a church mouse. It’s funny how Bobby solidified her reputation for not winning cases. Successful attorney my azz. And what happened to her being a correspondent? She was probably getting chit wrong all the time and they figured out what a charlatan she is.

            Phaedra has nothing going for herself, that’s why she’s talking about her houses and cars. That’s all you got?

          • Bobbi

            It’s true. Loser, hanging on by a thread. It’s why she’s still begging crumbs at the Bravo table. Guess what I noticed though. I read recently that they were considering Eva Marcille for season 10. I just saw that Phaedra posted some photos on her IG of her getting chummy with Eva at Essence calling each other all kinds of sweet nothing’s. Never seen them together. Ever. Hmmmm. Did they find someone to film with her or is Phaedra campaigning to get her on the show as a friend who is willing to film with her. You know how these desperate hooka’s plant stories. Nene was famous for it.

            I noticed Porsha apparently didn’t even get invited to Essence Festival, there is not even one photo on her IG depicting her there. Actually she posted photos of her in the gym trying to undo the 20lb damage she gains every hiatus. No one is calling her for ANYTHING except her 5min spot on DN. Guess who else wasn’t there? SheAin’tChit by Sheree. The message is Loud. And. Clear.

      • GetReal2014

        LOL!

      • Rochelle013

        ROFL!!!!!!!

    • The Champ

      That’s bcuz nobody likes her, you saw how quick Willie Watkins got away from her. Her reputation as a lawyer and a person is mud. Who would ever hire her as their lawyer? Look how much she helped Johnnie, he was better off going straight to Kandi. But No, Creonta wanted to use him for her SL to get back at Kandi. Now both he and Creonta look like fools. I can’t believe she’s still trying to convince ppl that she wasn’t in the wrong. wwjd, smh.

      • Bobbi

        It’s true. The silence is deafening. I believe it’s more than them not liking her. I believe it’s because they know how nasty and dirty her history and real rep is or they’re doing dirt right along with her. Either way no one will vouch for her or dare be connected to her name. Phaedra is a pathological liar, evil, master manipulator and so I’m sure AS, Drama, Voker (sp) and Bobby Brown aren’t the only people in the Atl she has screwed. I am willing to bet she has spread the love all over Atl. They are probably hoping he goes down.

        • GetReal2014

          Yes. Not one person has vouched for her. Where is her friend Quad who was lightweight going along with her BS? Why hasn’t she spoken up for her “friend”? Of course they knew who she was and they went along with it. Now they don’t want to be stained by her reputation, but you are the company that you keep. So when you go along with dirt, you’re dirt too. A wise person would extricate themselves from all appearances of evil, not go along with the program. But then, those are the ones who scatter when the chit hits the fan. Every time.

          • Bobbi

            Girl, Quad is no better than Phaedra.. I said respectable peer. Lmao. That hinged mouth jackal is foul too….got a rap sheet just like all the other dirty birds Phaedra associates with.
            The respectable ones won’t touch her with a 10 foot pole for obvious reasons and the dirty one’s dont want any light shown on their dirty dealings and pasts. All it takes is discovering one good (in this case, bad) missing piece to complete a puzzle. They have and are avoiding her like the plague. At least in the light of day.

          • GetReal2014

            LOLOLOLOL!

            Quad has a rap sheet? WTH is wrong with these people? I don’t know any woman with a rap sheet or has ever worn those silver, connected bracelets, and this franchise has a ton of criminals, and yes, you’re a criminal if you’re in the law enforcement system because you broke the law, unless you were railroaded.

            I didn’t know anything about Quad, except that she was rachet and fake, but a rap sheet? That’s funny.

            Still, if you’re going to support and uphold someone when they’re doing dirty deeds, don’t run when the spotlight is on them. You can’t trust crooks, can you?

          • Bobbi

            Lmao! Yes girl, she and another cast member on that show were shading each other about their pasts and it came out that she had been to jail and I think arrested a second time. I know for sure she has been to jail. She admitted it. 2nd offense may have been for that fohead that starts behind her ears. Lol!…..ah crime if I’ve ever seen one.
            Girl, you know you’ve eff’d up when the jailbirds won’t even come to your defense.

          • GetReal2014

            Wow, and trying to act like she’s so classy. I’m not surprised though. She’s so fake it’s pathetic. Trying to act like she has airs with her criminal self.

            I don’t think anyone has come to Phaedra’s defense publicly. Just goes to show you how little people think of her.

          • Bobbi

            She’s gross.

          • GetReal2014

            And ugly with that big tomato head. She looks like she’s baldheaded too. I can’t believe she tries to act like she believes she’s got it going on with a mug like that. Oh, and that fake voice. Can’t stand her either.

      • GetReal2014

        Crazy. This woman has no soul. But she has a lot of nerve. She shouldn’t be making any public appearances. It just shows how depraved she is.

        • Rochelle013

          Exactly!

        • Bobbi

          “No soul but a lot of nerve”. Ha! Phaedra in a nutshell. Literally. Lol

          • GetReal2014

            She won’t stop, will she? She’s going to have to be stopped, stomped and destroyed like the cockroach that she is.

          • Bobbi

            Yep. She is the cockroach of society.

          • GetReal2014

            Phaedra is gross as hail, in every category. One of the most pitiful excuses for a human being I’ve ever seen.

        • The Champ

          She’s a certifiable psychopath. Somebody needs to shut her down, what’s wrong with her parents? Where’s the guidance and Christian values? Nevermind………don’t answer that. Missed chatting with you guys today, I was out enjoying the fam. Catch up soon ☺

          • GetReal2014

            She sure is and she needs to be exorcised in order to be around decent people. It’s so obvious that something is wrong with her.

            I’m sure her parents can’t do anything with her at this age, but I respect the father more for not aiding and abetting that criminal. The mother is full of chit, or burying her head in the sand. I wouldn’t let that @sswipe bring my name down. It just goes to show you how sick the mother is too.

            Glad you had fun. The boys came over for a bit today. It was nice to see them, so it was a good day.

          • The Champ

            You ain’t never lied. She’s been evil for so long I don’t know if an exorcism would help her. After being caught red handed, she’s still in denial. Ppl like her scare me, I wouldn’t want her around my family. I don’t think her father really wants anything to do with her nasty azz, his body language said it all. I’m sure her mom is reaping the benefits of Creonta’s unlawful habits and behaviors. In other words she condones such behaviors as long as she benefiting from it. I know the boys just love you to pieces, you’re such a sweet spirit. I know your son enjoyed them as well ☺

          • GetReal2014

            She really is a horrible person, the likes of which I’ve never seen. I couldn’t be around her. It would upset me. How do you relax around a person like that? In denial, and blaming others. Even if Carlos did tell her that, Phaedra made the decision to bring it to the show, and trick Porsha into using it as a storyline. Porsha wasn’t innocent in that, she willingly used it as a storyline. Both of them are @sswipes without regard for anyone.

            Her father’s body language says it all, and her mother’s agreement with her devilish deeds speaks just as loudly. Who in the hail allows her to preach in their church? She should’ve been asked to sit down for co-signing her daughter’s nonsense.

            I love them to pieces too. My niece brings them because she knows how I treated them when they were little. They get undivided attention, make their own menu and we play every game in my arsenal. The five year old is 8-0 vs. me in the memory game. I can’t beat him for nothing. Neither can his older brother, only my son has beaten him, but even he admitted it wasn’t easy, LOL.

          • The Champ

            At this point it really doesn’t matter what Carlos said. Phaedra handed the baton to Poorsha and she took it and ran with it. That’s Phaedra’s m.o, she plants seeds and sits back and watch them grow. Who in their right mind doesn’t know that Poorsha’s knucklehead azz can’t hold water? She has the biggest mouth on the franchise, next to Nene and Sherain’t. I wouldn’t trade secrets with any of those three, unless I wanted it to get back to everyone. That’s exactly why Creonta chose Poorsha, she wanted her to do her dirty work. Poorsha was all for it, she wanted to get back at Kandi bcuz she thought she told everyone she slept with Block. It was Sherain’t who insinuated Poorsha was sleeping with Block, not Kandi. And who thought for one second that Poorsha’s trifling azz didn’t sleep with that man. The same woman who screwed two men in one season, really. Like Kandi said, she’s a pass around, she slept with Block and his crew.

          • GetReal2014

            I agree 100%. Carlos has nothing to do with what transpired later. You can tell someone anything, but that doesn’t give them the license to put it on TV, so there’s no excuse for F & F. They did the dirt because they wanted to. Bottom line.

          • The Champ

            No excuse at ALL. They both knew exactly what they were doing insinuating that the Tucker’s wanted to drug and rape Poorsha. Who in their right mind would repeat such a thing w/o checking the source? It’s damaging and unlawful. Even if Carlos did tell her, they would have to prove it. Who would take Creonta’s word for it? She lies like a rug, but we’re supposed to believe Carlos fed her the lies.

          • GetReal2014

            You know it, and everything that Phaedra says is a lie, so I’m not believing Carlos told her anything, simply because she’s the one who said it.

          • The Champ

            I don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth. I wonder what Carlos thinks of her azz now? She basically tried to take him out with her. We all know how evil Creonta is, she lives to destroy others.

    • GetReal2014

      No remorse and that tells you all you need to know about Mrs. Parks. She just waltzes into the festival like she’s on good terms with everyone. Delusional trick. I wouldn’t have given her the time of day. Hi, bye, and excuse me.

      • Bobbi

        Delusional from day 1….and her “no matter what happens” statement let’s you know her @ss is still begging for her job.

        • GetReal2014

          You’re right. That was a clue. She must think that her odds got a little better since she was cozying up to Cynthia. Just testing the waters. Like I said, “Hi, bye, and excuse me. ” Eff her dirty azz.

          • Bobbi

            Exactly. That fall – up on Cyn was a total ambush for a photo op. You did say this trick had nerve. Lol and she does. She knows none of these women want a dang thing to do with her.

          • GetReal2014

            How fake can you be? She’s never liked Cynthia, but anything for attention and a photo op.

    • Rochelle013

      ^^THIS. And all this proves the “rumors” about her, are most likely true. This is who she is and will not change. She believes her own BS. She is a real example of a psycho.

      • Bobbi

        This is the absolute truth. Phaedra is “Gone Girl”

  • The Champ

    Another old wives tale from Mrs. Shady Belle. Funny how she’s using her platform to excuse the awful things she and Poorsha said about the Tucker’s. I would have thought she would speak about how to get away with crime and manipulate the judicial system, go figure. There’s nothing she could ever say to interest me, she lies on others and manipulates fools to do her dirty work. Creonta Deville has shown her hand and exposed her evil ways. Just goes to show how delusional she is and living in denial. She’s dangerous and willing to burn anyone who crosses her path. Just another example of her deceitfulness.

    • Bobbi

      Phaedra is one cold hearted woman and still trying to manipulate the masses. She was practically trying to force affirmation and acceptance from the audience. She obviously still thinks her words carry more weight than her actions.

      • GetReal2014

        That’s what I got out of it too. And as usual she’s trying to insert herself into a group of positive, empowering black women. It’s not working Creonta Deville, you are a blight on society. A woman who tries to destroy everyone around you based on your insecurities. . Instead of apologizing to the people you have attempted to destroy you are trying to repair your own image, because it’s all about you and never about the victim.

        How dare she turn up at such a positive and empowering event. She should be visiting prisons to see her final resting place.

        Not one word of regret or remorse. Phaedra can go straight to hail.

        • Bobbi

          So good this post…….only concerned to repair her image AND convince folks that most importantly she still has her “shiny things”. That right there proves that crooked heffa aint about nothing right. She is a damaged empty, lost soul.

          • GetReal2014

            You know it, she’s only concerned about repairing her image and getting back in. Her main purpose is to convince others of that BS persona she created, but couldn’t for one day, maintain.

            And to think that you can try to destroy someone’s life, career, and livelihood and you come back talking about you’re blessed because you have houses and cars?

            That tells you all you need to know about Phaedra Parks and her motivations. She’s a devil through and through.

          • Bobbi

            All true. Jesus will truly have to fix that. History tells us she will never change without divine intervention.

      • The Champ

        She’s a nasty piece of work. I’m embarrassed for her, her life is pathetic. The only person she has to blame is herself, if she can’t see her faults, there’s no hope. Seems like Her parents gave up on her long ago. You can’t tell me they are a close knit family. My family wouldn’t let me go out like that. She’s still blaming production, as if that’s gonna help her get her job back. What a donkey 🐴 Hope you enjoyed your day, talk soon. Sleepy time 😪😪

    • GetReal2014

      You’re right. Another old wives tale. Such a liar and someone who never takes responsibility for her actions. Imagine doing the things she has done and never sincerely apologizing or showing any remorse? That’s crazy. Instead she talks about her material possessions. How does material goods make up for the wake of destruction she has left in her path?

      Her parents, what about her siblings? This trick is sick. Bottom line. She should be embarrassed to show her face, instead she’s thinking of her next move and plotting her next diabolical deed. Total sicko.

      • The Champ

        Material possessions is the main reason she’s in the very predicament she speaks of. If it wasn’t for her love of money, she wouldn’t be so desperate to keep it. I remember Apollo saying, she put a lot of pressure on him to keep up appearances and he was becoming overwhelmed. Did you ever notice how upset and disgusted he was by her antics, when throwing lavish parties? It always seemed like she had to drag him along and force him to participate. She was used to running the household and when he would speak up, she would turn on him. He said it out of his own mouth, while speaking to the fellas on the show. Her life on the show has always been facade. You’re right, she didn’t even mention her family or friends. When living a lie goes terribly wrong and your pride won’t let you step aside. How embarrassing.

        • GetReal2014

          So true. Things come first for Mrs. Parks in every situation. I remember Apollo being frustrated by her love of money.

          She’ll never change. We know that by how she listed her priorities.

          • The Champ

            Im just glad we don’t have to look at her face any longer 😬 She can continue on with her delusions and damage control campaign. Nobody’s listening.

          • GetReal2014

            That’s how I feel too. Offer an apology for the bull that you spewed, until then, get the hail out of Dodge and go do some penance.

          • The Champ

            You and I both know she ain’t offering up a d@mn thing. Especially to Kandi and Todd, maybe Poorsha. She won’t be missed, we never even knew of her b4 the show. She can go back to her life of being unknown, nobody cares.

          • GetReal2014

            That heifer was a blight on my TV from day one. Came on the show lying and never stopped. I would love to never see or hear from her lying, trick azz forever. She needs to go and get some help. What a life she has led.

          • The Champ

            And she’s still spinning her lies and deceit. Her recent firing hasn’t humbled her one bit. For some odd reason she thinks she’s invincible. She’ll be sitting back picking her toes, watching her former castmates on television with the rest of the world. A pitiful fool she is.

          • GetReal2014

            I don’t think that’ll ever change. She can’t help it. Every time she opens her mouth a lie falls out.

          • The Champ

            And that long azz nasty tongue of hers doesn’t help. Pure evil.

          • GetReal2014

            She’s nasty. No doubt about it.

          • The Champ

            Yep, it don’t get no nastier.

  • rasta

    She may feel bigger than show, possesions and that 12 minute reunion expose’ but she shocked hell out of us in those revealing minutes and makes folk reflect about nefarious things she’s rumored to have done in her past, if indeed it IS her past. At this point the only things believable should be run through a polygraph.

  • the underground train

    I find it very odd that Phaedra is thankful for her houses and cars before her children and parents.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi underground. A lot of us agree with you. It’s like Fake telling us even though she was fired she still has her three homes and sh*tload of cars. Well, if she isn’t generating an income to cover the expenses she’s going to lose her material possessions.

      It’s about wealth, not one soul..

  • Champagne Hangover

    Nice surreptitious play of the race card there, Phaedra. 🙄. Phaedra, you had it ALL on that show. You had it made, but your inner green eyed monster of jealousy and pride made you lash out at Kandi in a tortuously and tortious manner. You went from asset to liability just like that, and for what? For what?! Friends come and go. You don’t risk your reputation and livelihood over some (quite frankly) middle school level of vengeful rumor mongering, just because a friend turned out to be not what you expected a friend to be. The fact that you’re not ashamed of yourself means only one thing, and that’s that you haven’t been sufficiently shamed. May that day come soon because god help those children you knowingly had with a felon. They deserve and desperately need better role models than their wayward parents.

    • Marsbars09

      Great commentary CH! Fake had it all: a million plus dollar income for only 6 months of work, the support of Andy Cohen, and a fan base who supported her. She threw it all away in an effort to shame Kandi.

      • Champagne Hangover

        And the irony is, it is Kandi serving Phaedra a COLD, COLD dish of revenge, a dish that Phaedra spent quite some time cooking up. The fact that Kandi is not publicly gloating over this is a testament to that woman’s character because were I Kandi, I’d be in front of every camera that would shoot my mug, proclaiming, ‘I TOOK DA BITCH DOOOOOOOOWN! BOOM! LIKE DAT!’ 😜

        • Marsbars09

          I think Kandi is moving on from that utter hell she experienced last season. I hope she is paying Fake dust.

          • Champagne Hangover

            Kandi is taking the high road, that living well is the best revenge. I know a lot of people say Kandi is this, Kandi is that. Whatever. She is what she is, but she is a class act in a lot of ways. And by that, I mean she could handle shit in a nasty, public self serving way and hold grudges and use her power, money and status to destroy people who have wronged her, yet she doesn’t. She didn’t with Kim, she hasn’t with the employee that’s suing her and she’s not doing it with Phaedra either. Every single one of those people would and have deserved a full on hot press verbal smack down on the level Kandi COULD serve up. She didn’t do it, though, because despite all the sex talk and the street slang etc., Kandi really is a class act. That’s her dirty little secret, her class score exceeds her freak score. Ha!

          • the underground train

            True. I remember Kandi being the only that apologized for her behavior at the pajama brawl.

          LOL! Instead, Kandi took her time and unleashed her Kracken Mama Joyce on her. That’ll keep Joyce busy for quite a while.

          • Champagne Hangover

            Kandi is one smart cookie. You can’t deny.

        • Bobbi

          Yassssss, Kandi is too busy winning. Someone at the Essence festival took a video of the throngs of people who were unable to get in to see Xscape. They had to shut down the entire 3rd floor of the Superdome because her fans stood outside singing their songs and partying, having a ball. So awesome! You know she is on cloud 9 for so many reasons.

          • GetReal2014

            Good for her. All that crap Phaedra pulled and now look at her. God don’t like ugly. I can’t believe that devil even had the nerve to show up at a widely publicized event. There is no shame in her game. Still trying to fool and manipulate people. You know she’s embarrassed.

          • Bobbi

            She’s doing whatever she can to not fade into the woodwork. She has a very small window before viewers forget about her. Even less than Nene.

          • GetReal2014

            Yes, that much is obvious, but I doubt it’ll work. All of the articles and comments on the internet are not complimentary. She’s stuck though. If she stays out of the limelight she’ll be forgotten sooner, but if she’s visible it’s only a reminder of the dirt that she’s capable of.

            Everywhere I’ve gone the comments about her have been negative. Nobody is feeling Phaedra any more. She blew it big time. She had so many people hoodwinked, celebrities too, but not anymore. That chick is stupid. She didn’t know when to quit.

        • GetReal2014

          LOLOLOL!

          You’re right. That shows a lot about Kandi’s character. I don’t know what I would do with access to the media where I could get my feelings out at will. They’d ask me what I had in progress and I’d probably turn it into something about Phaedra’s dirty azz.

      • the underground train

        Yes. ITA

    • rasta

      Couldn’t have said it better.

    • Rochelle013

      ^^^THIS

    • ScrappieONE

      This is also Phaedra’s track record… Remember what she did to Angela Stanton. I’m sure there is a long list of people she play or betrayed.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      So let’s all follow behind her, Game Of Thrones style, yelling Shame!! Shame!! Shame!!

    • Amen!

  • MasterOfTheGame

    I like how Phaedra lists all her material assets first before getting to her kids and parents on her blessings list. Lol lol. Priorities girl! Lol

    • SMDRN66

      Well come on! It’s THREE houses and only TWO kids. Priorities you know. LOL!

    • SassyMcAsspants

      That’s exactly what I was thinking as well!

  • shayvoe

    As shady as Phae can be, Bravo is shadier. I absolutely believe she was feed that story by Carlos King, and is was edited out on the reunion when she said so. That’s why Kandi and the others are “taking the high road”. It’s not really the high road….they know the truth and are keeping their mouths shut, as production demands…therefore…not saying anything at all. Phaedra is guilty of repeating it to Porsha, not making it up. Porsha should have been fired for repeating it to Kandi, if Phaedra was fired for repeating it to Porsha, which was not even on air.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      I am not buying the “highroad” nonsense either. I am also not convinced that Kandi couldn’t have gotten Bravo to edit out what Porsha said.
      Kandi let it play out that way so she could play the victim. It worked in her favor because she got Phaedra fired & got a spin off show. Well played Kandi. Well played.

    • Authentic

      If only Kandi had taken the high road vs screaming rape for several weeks on every blog. That got on my damn nerves and it’s not our fault Todd thinks Portia is hotter than Kandi. No! I’ll NEVER think Kandi and Todd wanted to do that to Portia. Never. Thankfully Kandi finally stfu” I think”. I’ve yet to hear from Carlos King so the whole thing is still a hot mess to me.
      The whole cast except former Carlos needs to be quiet… including your wanting to be relevant ass Kenya. Only relevant r people need to speak at this time and that might include YOU Carlos.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    While I agree that producers edit these shows to make these women look as crazy & conniving as possible, they can not give you a bad edit if you do not give them the material to work with.

    • melanctha

      Phaedra did not say one word on camera. Production had to set that up. They got rid of Carlos and let Phraedra take the rap. Portia said she was told in confidence, not told to confront Kandi or spread it around. I would warn my friend, no ifs, ands or buts. Where is the revenge if it is between friends? Portia said that to keep herself in the clear.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I get what you are saying. But I do not think for one second Phaedra thought Kandi would do that to Porsha. So I was saying she may have told Porsha out of revenge.
        Porsha was dead wrong for repeating that on camera. She did it with a shyt eating grin on her face. Dumb dumb didn’t believe it either. She took a cheap shot at Kandi.
        I do not think it’s right that Porsha turned on the waterworks & everyone just believed she was used as a pawn. Porsha knew exactly what she was doing.

        • melanctha

          I think the person looking for revenge was Carlos. He had some kind of falling out with Todd and Kandi. I think Phaedra wasn’t sure how far Kandi would go for Todd. If my friend were the subject of such a rumor I would warn her. I might not be sure but I would warn her.

        • rasta

          Nah. Phae was caught flat footed on this one. Guess it was so easy working it with Porsha that she didn’t bother to cover her tracks. She had Porsha on lock like she had Stanton and another chic caught couple of years later doing same thing. Never thought for a sec that she’d get hit by a train from the “Underground RR”. Porsha served her up like the catfish she is. Left her blinking like a froze deer in head lights. LOL! And I enjoyed every minute.

          • LMAO! Love this comment.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            LOL!! I don’t know about all of that but I still say Porsha was a willing participant & knew exactly what she was doing.
            I do not think for one second that she believed Kandi said or was going to do that.

        • Authentic

          I think Porsha turned on waterworks because that’s what Lauren told her to do, otherwise Porsha would have been a loose cannon. I say Lauren said stop covering and being afraid of lawyer Phaedra. That was a shock to the lawyer.
          However, we still don’t know the whole truth about this hot ghetto mess AND probably never will. Currently all eyes point to Carlos….very convenient because he doesn’t have to talk. My only issue is Todd said Porsha was the hottest Atl HW and that probably still pisses Kandi off PLUS it was obvious during reunion Todd enjoyed watching Kandi and Porsha kiss more than once, if more than once Kandi enjoyed too so sharing the text in HI was STUPID Kandi especially since her husband put her on blast during reunion. Sorry Kandi! Get your freaky man in check, not the viewers. Thankfully you stopped blasting the word rape, you started looking STUPID…..Todd thinks Porsha is hot. Period. If Porsha is interested in Todd he will Never have to rape Porsha. Trust that. Listen to your inner brain and what Todd said at reunion Kandi.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Nailed it. If everyone could put aside their feelings toward Phaedra aka Fake, they would see exactly what went down.
            Phaedra had to know that Porsha was going to bring it up on camera. Otherwise, she was just gossiping with her friend. She never said it on camera. Porsha did. So that victim stance is BS to me.

          • Authentic

            That’s my biggest issue Bette – what’s being discussed on SM and we really know absolutely shyt. Just a group of women doing everything in their power to keep their jobs. Many of us (Me included) have run with latest gossip trying to figure this shyt out BUT we can’t. It seems Phaedra needs to spill the guts or point us in right direction but does that mean Phaeda is telling the truth? And why doesn’t Bravo officially fire Phaedra?…vs Phaedra appearing as pop-ups next season? Phaedra may be an excellent entertainer for Bravo with many haters but she’s also a lawyer, contract lawyer I believe which means her expertise is finding flaws in any contracts. Phaedra and Bravo both have lawyer contacts…..both better be legally ready regardless of the bs we see weekly. Game on! Its going to be a bumpy night(s)/week(s)/year(s). Lol!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            ^100 times, just for the Bette Davis quote. LOL!!
            That whole thing stinks to high heaven. First of all, Bravo should have edited that claim of Porsha’s out. Since they did not, she should have been fired as well for saying it on camera.
            I have read that Phaedra blamed producers & that Bravo edited that scene out. I don’t know if they did that because she was lying or they do not want the audience to know just how much production interfers.

          • Authentic

            Shayvoe said she read the edited out stuff on P6 and I believe it only because they’re too many scenes where Phaedra is just quiet, like waiting on a response and Phaedra is not known for being quiet. The whole 3rd segment of reunion is just wierd…..minus Porsha’s well rehearsed HBO production. Otherwise, the whole cast deserves an F- for acting …All of these B’s know the truth about everything, EVERYTHING! They should all quit RHOA, do a spinoff on another network and explain the slavery they endured for those Bravo paychecks. Today they look like complete fools except for viewers that actually believe everything they witness weekly. This franchise used to be fun!! I keep hoping the fun comes back but sadly that subject seems null, mute and void.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Hey Authentic!!
            You know what struck me as proof that AC knew what was going on or atleast something was edited out?!? When they were backstage & Kandi asked, “what do you think about that?!?”
            Andy with his shyt eating grin says “I’m shocked!!” He was just counting the ratings in his head. Whatever happened to the rumor that Toad was going to say Dumb Dumb hooked up with Alpo?!?
            It was just a rumor & everyone ran with it.
            Now, we are to believe that these women are all taking the high road & not mentioning it. We all know Dust Mop would be all over SM dogging F&F out.

          • Authentic

            That’s what’s really strange today! Even Dust Mop shut her trap about the reunion. MS anytime you need your floor swept clean the never shut up Pine Sol Dust Mop finally stopped embedding her azz in a situation that had nothing to do with her. That says it all. Production obviously gave warnings to all including Kandi screaming rape which we still have no proof where that originated to stfu. Bravo got their ratings

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Exactly. That one NEVER misses an opportunity to get up in everyone else’s business. Especially F&F.
            Kandi knew exactly what was going on & let it playout. The agreement probably was that Phaedra would be fired & Kandi would get a spinoff. Very smart on Kandi’s part. I must say.

  • GirlPlz

    Why is she at Essence festival. She’s a forgotten nobody. Bye Fakedra

  • The nerve of this one to even show her face in public….sociopathic traits.

  • 4peace

    You are not what you own or what you borrow. Phaedra needs to concentrate on her boys, not her possessions.

  • Authentic

    Ive said a thousand times I’m not a Phaedra hater or fan, I think because she passed the bar and is a lawyer. I’m not dumb but know I could never do that.

    On the flip side I do not want to hear from Phaedra until I hear the complete truth. Why is she speaking at Essence? She’s not an empowerment to any woman at this time, regardless of race so leave race out of it. I don’t remember these comments when she was making those coins! Yes, she spoke about Black Lives Matter, etc but did she ever speak of doing Black Face for Bravo for that money? No! She did perform for Bravo but she never did the most ghetto shyt ever; Nene. I do admire she never shared all of her personal life with viewers. For what? We can read! Whether viewers agree or not Phaedra is smart. And Porsha (sp?) rehearsed and planned her escape from Phaedra per Lauren’s instructions to stay on the show during the reunion. That performance was all Lauren-all planned per Lauren. Unfortunately Phedra never saw that coming! Right now Phaedra needs to focus on retaining all of the materialistic items she mentions since a large chunk of chain is gone. Strange she chooses now to brag. Not a good move Phaedra….stfu. haters listening.
