Andy Cohen Doesn't Believe Producers Told Phaedra Rape Rumor + Why He Won't Pay Husbands On Show

Andy Cohen Doesn’t Believe Producers Told Phaedra Rape Rumor

In a new interview, Andy Cohen opens up about the Phaedra Parks controversy that plagued the reunion of Real Housewives of Atlanta. As previously reported, during the reunion Phaedra revealed that she had repeated the rumor that cast mate Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker had planned to drug and rape cast mate, Porsha Williams. Andy says about Phaedra’s reaction while the situation unfolded on the reunion,

She was very passive. I was surprised by that.

Andy, who is an executive producer of the franchise, admits he doesn’t believe that Phaedra was fed the rumor by production.

I don’t believe it and also I know Phaedra and I know everyone in the group. You can’t tell them ‘Go say this on camera…’ It’ just doesn’t work. You ever met a housewife? They do their own thing.

When asked if Phaedra is actually fired from the series, he says,

Well look, we’re looking at next season. And you have to look at where we left off, which is none of the women want to engage with her, so that’s a tough place to come back from.

Andy is also tight-lipped on whether Nene Leakes will return to the show.

The answer is, we haven’t started shooting. We will let you know as soon as it happens.

The EP also confirmed that men (husbands, boyfriends, etc.) do NOT get paid.

This is the show about the women and about their wives and the guys come with it. They are considered part of the package. Some of them will engage more than others. We’ve been lucky with Atlanta.

    Why on earth are they keeping this story line going. It is over. She is not returning and once Phaedra was exposed story line over. Let it go. No story line for next season. He is milking this thing for all it is worth. They really did not need to stretch it out a complete season.

        Sorry ,Carlos didn’t get fired ,That’s just bullshit going around . He got a deal from itv America that he couldn’t refuse ,in other words ” More Money ” Phaedra was blaming everybody .She didn’t want people to think she made something like that up !! Guess what ,SHE DID !! You’re a fan and you don’t see the real Phaedra ,the shady ,lying Phaedra that would throw her best friend under a bus if she had too ,just like she did with porsha !!

        Yes, Carlos with his messy petty self fell out with Toddler Taaawd, and dished that tea to Phaedra…out of spite! While I believe Taaawd said (to Carlos) that foolishness- jokingly during one of his many thirst-for-Porsha Moments, no doubt in my mind he said it! Carlos was previously fired from RHOA for makinging life miserable for Nene…Bravo’s once cash cow, and he lied about being terminated then also! He’s again lying about his firing this go round as well. Oh and his new …more lucrative deal? Lol Yeah well no surprise there! As NO ONE is more messy than Bravo and the EPs of RHOA, than Mona Scott Young…Carlos Kings’ new BOSS! So absolutely Young Scott and ’em welcomed Carlos in with open arms- after he was fired by BRAVO a second time.
