‘Harpo, Who This Man’: Phaedra Parks Rings in the New Year with Apparent New Boo

To ring in the new year, former “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks traveled to Chicago and stood by the side of a handsome local radio host, whom many speculated was her new boo.

The single mom posed with Tone Kapone, who hosts “Live with Tone Kapone” on WGCI Chicago on weekday afternoons.

“2019 we are ready ❣️” Parks captioned the image.

Others remarked on how the Atlanta-based attorney apparently has a type. She shares two young sons with ex-husband Apollo Nida, who is currently serving prison time for wire fraud.

“Somebody has a ‘type.’”

“you like them yella men.”

“O hell naw that n—– look just like her husband.”

“Phaedra got a type love it❤️❤️❤️”

“You have a type.”

“She got a type type🤗”

While Parks didn’t address whether she has a certain kind of man she’s attracted to, it does seem like she may have a thing for fairer-skinned men. In 2017, she was linked to “Station 19” star Shemar Moore.

The two got cozy during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” which spurred chatter that Parks and Moore were an item. However, the actor shut down that chatter, brushing it off as the pair simply having a good time.

“She looked at me and I kinda had this sense of like, ‘Oh, she thinks I’m the guy from “The Young and the Restless,” or ‘She thinks I’m a certain Shemar,'” he explained to E! News in November 2017. And I said, ‘Well, I’m gonna introduce you to a different kind of Shemar.’ So I just decided to have a good time and she was such a good sport and we played and we flirted and we got our little kissy face on. And then that went viral and that’s the first and the last time that I’ve ever seen or met Phaedra.”

Yet while Parks wasn’t dating Moore, she was getting back into the scene. Around that same time, the “RHOA” alum dished about jumping back into the dating pool three years after divorcing Nida. She told Us Weekly she’d been out with a few guys and explained what she was hoping for.

“I’m not dating anyone seriously. I’ve been on a few dates. I think I’m hot on the market,” she said. “I’m looking for a lot of things. I love to be pampered. … I also love an attractive man, so there’s that as well.”

And last year, Parks said she was getting into the 21st century form of dating.

“I recently joined [a dating app] like all of 24 hours ago,” Parks told “Bossip on WE” in September.
