Phaedra Parks Addresses ‘RHOA’ Return, Welcomes New Role on ‘Braxton Family Values’

Phaedra Parks is going on the record to put rumors that she’s returning to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” to rest.

“You know, I have closed that chapter, and I’ve moved on to new things,” the 44-year-old told Us Weekly Tuesday, Aug. 21 during a WEtv celebration of the “Braxton Family Values” latest season. “I’m now with WE tv and I’m very happy and very excited about the opportunities that they’ve presented to me. So, you know, that’s a done deal at the moment. I never say never, but you know, I’ve moved on to greener pastures.”

Parks had previously been rumored to be back on the Bravo series for the 11th season when she teased fans about a peach cocktail she was sipping earlier this summer.

“What kinda drink is this?” Parks said. “Well, of course, darling, it’s a peach bellini. You see that fresh peach? Mmm. It’s magnificent.”

However, Kandi Burruss shut down talk that Parks would come back to the show, saying on an Instagram Live stream, “No, I don’t think so. I ain’t seen her, I ain’t talk to her and nobody’s told me nothing about her coming back. … So as far as I know, no. But I don’t know.”

Should Parks have returned, it would have been the first time the Atlanta attorney was featured on the show since being fired after she spread a rumor that Burruss wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams in her supposed sex dungeon.

But Parks isn’t ruling out reality TV completely. She recently announced she’ll be on the newest season of “Braxton Family Values” and she’s going on some adventures with Traci Braxton.

“I’ll be on numerous episodes with Traci, and I think they’re gonna be fabulous,” Parks told Us Weekly of her time on the show. “You need to tune in because it’s something different. You know, anytime I come on the scene, it’s gonna be fabulous. So you know, tune in.”

Parks was more candid about what her involvement will entail on “Good Day New York.” While on the morning show, the hosts showed a clip of her time on a cattle ranch with Traci.
