The highly anticipated return of Phaedra Parks to Bravo screens across the country is near. Ever since Parks’ exit in 2019 following the Season 9 closure of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Parks’ fans have been begging for the self-proclaimed southern belle’s return.
Fans recall Parks orchestrated a damaging rumor about her former BFF Kandi Burruss and Burruss’ husband Todd Tucker planning to drug Porsha Williams. The rumor played out all season long with Williams revealing the rumor but not the person who told her, frustrating Burruss along the way.
Parks came clean, admitting she spread the rumor but insisted she “repeated” the information, giving a wonky apology to Burruss in return and trying to salvage her relationship with Williams. The remainder of the cast allegedly didn’t trust Parks any longer, nor wanted to film with her, resulting in her termination.
But alas, after four seasons of absence, fans’ prayers have been answered as Burruss will be back on Bravo for a special episode Watch What Happens Live.
In a teaser, Andy Cohen asks her, “Phaedra, do you think there’s any possibility of you and Kandi [Burruss] ever making amends.” Before Parks’ answer is revealed, the screen turns black.
Yessss Can’t wait to see Phaedra Parks on #WWHL
