Phaedra Parks is responding to Tamar Braxton mocking her for joining “Braxton Family Values” in the classiest way possible.
While Parks appeared on “Bossip on WE” to chat about her involvement on the reality show, the hosts asked the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star about Braxton making fun of Parks trying to become a “Braxton” by getting on the show.
“Who’s not a Braxton, Towanda? Who? Phaedra Braxton not a Braxton?” Tamar said in a since-deleted Instagram video on Aug. 22. “C’mon, let’s do a toast. Let’s do a toast to the Braxton wannabes. To Phaedra Braxton … Maybe she’ll be funny and great.”
But Parks isn’t worried about Braxton’s issue with her sister Traci Braxton bringing the Atlanta attorney on board.
“I understand both sides of it,” Parks says. “And like I told Traci from day one, blood is thicker than water.”
She added that she respects all of the Braxton siblings and hopes they are not threatened by her.
“This is what my grandmom used to tell me,” Parks added on whether or not she felt like she needed to respond. “Wolves howl at the moon because the moon’s job is to shine, baby. It don’t howl back.”
As for the sisters tense meeting with life coach Iyanla Vanzant, Parks says she’s hopeful the sisters can come back together in harmony.
Parks’ inclusion on “Braxton Family Values” marks her return to the reality TV spotlight. The star appeared on RHOA for six seasons before her tenure abruptly ended when she claimed one of her castmates wanted to rape and drug another.
The single mom recently sounded off on whether or not she’d ever go back to her old reality TV stomping grounds.
“You know, I have closed that chapter, and I’ve moved on to new things,” she told Us Weekly last month. “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.”
