It seems things are going full steam ahead with Phaedra Parks‘ new man — well enough for the couple to get some relationship help courtesy of “Marriage Boot Camp.”
That’s the case according to insiders with the We TV reality series who informed TMZ of the claim Wednesday.
Sources allege Parks, an alum of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” has already filmed several episodes with her actor beau, “The Haves and Have Nots” actor Medina Islam. Allegedly, Parks’ issues with her reported boyfriend of a few months stem from her wish to leave her home of Atlanta and move to Los Angeles with sons Ayden, 9, and Dylan, 6, in order to be closer to Medina. Basically, the couple, who were first spotted together grabbing lunch in L.A. in July, are sorting through what the next steps are in their relationship.
Parks has not been a regular on reality TV since she spread a rumor that “RHOA” co-star Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and rape fellow cast member Porsha Williams. That spelled the end of her time on the long-running Bravo series, and she hasn’t returned after she got booted following season 9.
And in the years since, the attorney has maintained she has no interest in coming back to “RHOA.”
“I know there’s lots of rumors swirling around about me returning to the housewives, but I haven’t had any discussions about returning. … I had a good run and you know, I’m very happy right now, ” Parks said to the Daily Mail earlier this summer. That echoed her remark to Us Weekly last year when she was asked if she’d ever consider rejoining the ATL Housewives.
“I have closed that chapter, and I’ve moved on to new things,” she said at the time.
At the time, Parks was making the rounds promoting her appearance on “Braxton Family Values.” Parks was one of several famed reality stars hanging out on a cattle ranch with Traci Braxton, whose family walked off the set over a pay dispute in summer 2018.
“I’ll be on numerous episodes with Traci, and I think they’re gonna be fabulous,” Parks said. “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.”
