Vivica A. Fox Explains Why She Called Ex-RHOA Star Phaedra Parks a ‘Toxic Trick’

Months after Vivica A. Fox got heated over a caption Phaedra Parks wrote on Instagram, the actress is addressing what led her to call the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star a “toxic trick.”

Back in July, Parks posted a photo with Fox’s ex-boyfriend 50 Cent to promote his show “Power.”

“You don’t rock with #Power??????? @50cent. . . .get the strap ✊🏾 Tune in now for Season 5 🎉. Sidenote: Before y’all start the chatter he ain’t Mr. Chocolate. Everybody knows his strap will have you sprung for 20 years and ain’t nobody got time for that!!!” Parks said on Instagram in the photo caption, an apparent dig at Fox’s ongoing affection for the rapper. “I have 2 kings and too many jobs but he smells amazing and is plum fine so keep him in your top 3 fantasy roster 🏆.”

Fox was heated over the comment and posted a text message Parks sent her, which was meant to clear up reports of a brewing feud. Fox then tore into the former reality TV staple.

“Hhhmm…When u have to break out dem receipts on another TOXIC TRICK! I SEE YOU! GURL BYE!” Fox said. “I ain’t new to this I’m true to THIS! #RealTalk #BossMoves #TeamVivica #TeamFox #LegitimateCareer #ClassicBadChick #GetAJob 😉 🙌🏾😻.”

So during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” the “Empire” star got to the bottom of things when a caller asked about the remark.

“Well, she was behaving like one. Because I had just seen her in New York, and I think the thing that bothered me the most was that I thought Phaedra and I were cool,” she said on the show Sunday, Sept. 16. “So when I saw when she did the text and the post … It said something about he’ll have you sprung. … And then I had referred her to my makeup artist. And like, you just don’t do that.”

Fox added that she tried to get over what happened and later texted a friend about it, who concurred that Parks’ post was, in fact, shady. The actress said when Parks texted her about it later on after the post made the rounds, she thought the conciliatory text message was “so fake.”

“I was like, b—-, really?”

Viewers chimed in and bashed Fox for continuing to be so irritated by the issue and by 50.

“Vivica hasn’t grown emotionally AT ALL….sad.”

“A hit dog will holla…. Phaedra was making a general statement. 😏”

“It’s almost 2019 why the hell is Vivica still talking about 50 cent!! She needs to learn to put that where!? Back there!!! Smh.”

“Vivica its been over 10 years GET OVER 50!! HE AIN’T THINKING ABOUT CHA BOO.”
