RHOA: Andy Cohen Says He’d Love To See Phaedra Parks Make A Return

RHOA: Andy Cohen Says He’d Love To See Phaedra Parks Make A Return

Executive producer at Bravo and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen openly stated that he’d love to see Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks make a comeback to the franchise. During her seven seasons appearing on the Housewives series, Phaedra became quickly became one of the show’s staple cast members. While her charming, southern belle personality may have charmed viewers, she was ultimately exiled from the Bravo world after it was revealed that she was the one spreading the slanderous rumors about cast Kandi Burress.

Fans were introduced to the entertainment attorney’s eclectic lifestyle when she first appeared on RHOA back in 2010. From filming her at-home fitness video Donkey Booty to her seemingly never-ending feud with Kenya Moore, Phaedra became a core fixture in the show’s ensemble of lavish, highly opinionated women. While she’s had tense reunion tiffs with the likes of Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, nothing could compare to the car crash of her relationship with her former bestie Kandi Burress at the season 9 reunion. Their friendship was on the rocks that year on the show when Phaedra began accusing Kandi’s husband of “scrapping for change” after a business venture mix-up. While some harsh words were exchanged between the women, things got to a new level of severity when it was revealed that Phaedra was the one behind the rumor that Kandi was trying to take advantage of costar Porsha Williams by drugging her. Phaedra has yet to return to the franchise ever since that explosive reunion when the truth was revealed.

During a segment of Ask Andy on Bravo’s after-show Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen was asked, “Out of all the former housewives, who would you bring back?” Without skipping a beat, the Bravo exec answered with, “Phaedra. Love Phaedra.” Andy name-dropped a couple more iconic faces of the Housewives franchise, listing Bethenny Frankel and Vicki Gunvalson as some of the former cast members who he’s missed the most.

Though she may no longer be a peach holder, Phaedra hasn’t put her career as a television personality on standby. She returned to the small screen when she appeared on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop season two with her then-boyfriend Medina Islam. Last year, she got the chance to show off her acting chops when she starred as Bernice Whitfield on the biblical anthology show, Covenant. Luckily for Bravo fans, Phaedra will be making her grand return to the network on Ultimate Girls Trip season 2.

While seeing Phaedra in Ultimate Girls Trip will surely be a delight for viewers, what Housewives fans are really clambering for is her return to Real Housewives of Atlanta. Ever since her termination as a cast member in season 9, fans have been waiting for the day when producers decide to shake up the show’s dynamic by adding her back into the mix. Upon her hopeful return, the stakes among the women would surely rise as there is some unfinished business between Phaedra and Kandi. Because of Phaedra’s departure, Porsha Williams was left to take the brunt of Kandi’s wrath for the drama of season 9. If the southern belle were to return to RHOA, fans could likely see a pretty intense showdown between the old friends.
