Bravo Gives Phaedra Parks Walking Papers? – Tha Wire
HipHollywood reports The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star, Phaedra Parks, was given the boot by execs at Bravo! For now I'll have to say this story is a rumor, because the network has not denied nor confirmed anything yet. However, it's interesting that they haven't made a statement at this point. I have say though, the background story on why she was allegedly let go... makes a lot of sense. So what's the deal?
Entertainment diva, Love B. Scott, dropped the tea over the weekend that Ms. Parks wasn't given re-up papers like the rest of the cast. Love reported the network decided to give Parks the boot, because of all the drama that runneth over from Season 9. Below is a look at a statement "a source" close to the situation, told Love,
“Everyone was given their renewal papers last week and Phaedra didn’t get hers. She got caught in so many treacherous lies this season that even the producers (including Andy Cohen) have had enough. She even brought ‘fake’ divorce papers to the reunion to prove a point. No one knows whether she’s telling the truth about anything anymore.”
With that in mind, Phaedra's camp is denying the reports. When the folks at Essence asked her reps if rumors of the stars firing were true they said, ”It’s untrue.” Yet "a source" tells Love B, that's just another lie comin' out of the Parks camp. Matter of fact, their saying all the lies throughout the season, is what got Parks fired! Don't let the Southern Bell/church lady act foul you. It's about as fake as a $3 dollar bill and her friendships. Speaking of which, she tried the wrong one with Kandi Burruss.
If you follow the show...It's bad enough Parks got things cranked-up when she told Sheree' and Porsha, the whole lesbian/date rape lie. Then she sat quiet, as a church mouse, letting her buddy Frick take the fall..and damn near getting her butt whipped, when the subject came up during two separate group outings. If that's not enough, she went out of her way to help Kandi's ex-employee, Johnnie Winston, find a lawyer to sue Kandi! Now people, that is just lowdown and dirty. Peep the video rundown on the lowdown, I just gave ya.
If the rumors of Phaedra being fired check out, this may karma coming back and bite Ms. Parks in the bee-hind. Word also hast it Kandi took the lesbian/rape allegations very seriously, and was gearing up to file a massive slander lawsuit. Bravo reportedly didn't want any parts of that, and felt it was time to cut all ties with Phaedra. So they allegedly did just that.
By the way, they supposedly didn't stop there. According to reports when pressed about lying on Kandi, Phaedra threw the shows producer, Carlos King, under the bus and claimed he gave her the bogus story. So allegedly, the network sent him packing on the strength of that. Meanwhile Kandi didn't forget about ol' Johnnie. Radar Online reports the singer/producer is clapping back, and filed a defamation suit against her former employee. The star is now suing Johnnie Boy, for making false claims, and slandering her name for an undisclosed amount.
Looks like he may really need Ms. Parks after all. Finally Love B reports the execs at Bravo have extended renewal offers to both, Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak. No word so far on how either of them responded. On things for sure, all this tea is building the excitement for Season 10. Hopefully Bravo will clear the air, and come forward with a statement on Phaedra's alleged firing.
For now, get ready to check out the explosive finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 9. Part 1 of the reunion special will air April 16 at 7 CT, and judging by the preview below, it's gonna be crazy.
