Phaedra May Return To RHOA As Guest, Was Paid $1.3 Million Last Season
Phaedra Parks is going to miss a serious paycheck if the rumors of her being fired pan out. According to a report, the southern belle received around $1.3 million last season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. However, the 43-year-old reality star was said to have been given a pink slip after spreading the infamous drug-rape rumor about her RHOA cast mate Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker. There are also reports that suggest that her alleged firing is deeper than the rumor. A source says,
Phaedra was not renewed because she wasn’t willing to share her true personal life. Producers have been begging her to date and open up about what truly went on in her marriage to Apollo [Nida] and react to Apollo’s girlfriend.
The source adds,
Phaedra’s storyline just doesn’t warrant her $1.3 million paycheck.
However, RHOA fans may see Phaedra next season or in the near future, just not holding a peach.
The network has reassured Phaedra that she is always welcome to appear in future installments as a guest.
Meanwhile, fans can expect to see the return of both original cast members NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann.
