Friend-feuds are the staple of the “Housewives” franchise, but the falling out between Williams and Parks has been noted as one of the most dramatic.
The revelation that Phaedra Parks was responsible for spreading the rumor that Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and take advantage of Porsha Williams shocked everyone. However, many believe that Phaedra should answer to her behavior, even if she has indeed been fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. At the reunion Parks denied the idea that she heard the claim from Burruss herself and said that she heard it from someone else, then repeated it. “And for me to feel like she had betrayed me like that, and the fact that I was sitting right there and watched her continue to lie on me about it, that’s the part I can’t get past and I don’t know if I ever will”. Of course, I have a soft spot for Phaedra, it’s where you don’t want to be manipulated anymore.
“I just feel like Phaedra was acting that she was concerned about Porsha, but she just threw her under the bus”. If you do not believe me check out the book “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil” written by her nemesis Angela Stanton, who she also reportedly sued in a defamation suit, but the case was dismissed with prejudice meaning Miss Stanton can sell her book. She did not elaborate any further. “Bravo is not planning to ask her back”.
We’re told the way Phaedra sees it, she was sacked in retaliation for throwing producers under the bus. I may get to the point where I’m strong enough to where I can talk to her and maybe we can work through it. So Phaedra’s been doing stuff like this. “From personal to business you have been consistent and I TOTALLY appreciate you!”
Real Housewives of New York City’s Bethenny Frankel gave her unfiltered opinion (no surprise there, right?) about Parks.
“But she’s happy that people do know what a liar Phaedra is. Damaging someone’s brand is not a joke @Kandi”.
So, Porsha now felt that she was being used to hurt Kandi. Remember when Dorinda Medley’s boyfriend, John Mahdessian, brought up her Skinnygirl business? Yeah, her reaction is pretty much expected. Phaedra noted that not every moment captured on “RHOA” is realistic, but that they do sometimes capture real, priceless moments.
“I was just very surprised – not just by the revelation that Phaedra spread”. “I’m not throwing everything on Phaedra”. “She started off telling lies about me”. Kandi says: ‘Mama you’re so cold.’ I would be.
