“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans have Phaedra Parks’ name on their lips.
Several current cast members got together for a themed event in which everyone wore animal print outfits. Photos of Porsha Williams, Shamea Morton, Tanya Sam and Marlo Hampton in varying kinds of leopard print ensembles surfaced on the ladies’ Instagram pages Thursday, including some video of Williams and bestie Morton yukking it up. Their co-star Kandi Burruss was also pictured in a zebra-print dress on the social media platform. A day earlier, Parks had also uploaded several photos to her own Instagram account wearing a green snakeskin print Karen Millen dress.
Realizing the similarities, several fans proclaimed Parks may have been in attendance.
“Phaedra also posted pics in snake skin 🤔”
“Phaedra had on snack print yesterday too…hhhmmm could she do a pop up 🤔🤔”
“Phaedraaaaaaaa was there too 🗣🗣”
“Beautiful ladies! Was it an animal print theme get together? Kandi had on zebra 🦓 and our good sis Phae had on snake 🐍 . . . . 🤔🙃🙃🙃 @therealhousewivesofatlanta.”
“It looks Porsha is telling Shamea that Phaedra will be there.”
If Parks actually did show up to the event, it would make for an interesting conundrum. Burruss has maintained she “wouldn’t be dealing with” “RHOA” if rumblings of Parks returning to the show after a two-season absence came to fruition.
“There’s only been like one year that I had to kind of like question if [the show] is really worth it. Obviously, it was that year when the whole craziness with Phaedra happened, you know. So that was the only year that I kind of questioned it, because I was like, OK, this is too much,” Burruss told HollywoodLife.com of the rumor Parks spread in season 9 claiming the singer wanted to drug and rape Williams.
Parks later shot back at Burruss’ vow to ditch the reality show by telling the Daily Mail in July, “I find it amusing because if she is that concerned about me three years later, I must have really impacted her life. So I’m glad I touched her like that.”
She also stated that although “there’s lots of rumors swirling around about me returning to the housewives, she hasn’t “had any discussions about returning. I never say never to any opportunities, but I had a good run and you know, I’m very happy right now.”
