‘RHOA’ Producers Reportedly Want Phaedra Parks To Return For Season 14
Is Bravo giving Phaedra Parks her peach back?
The reality star joined The Real Housewives of Atlanta back in 2010 and departed seven years later, respectively during the show’s third and ninth seasons.
However, according to a recent report by The Sun, Phaedra Parks could be gracing television screens once again for RHOA‘s upcoming fourteenth season. Reportedly, due to a drop in the show’s ratings and popularity for the 13th season, Bravo executives are considering bringing back Phaedra Parks to switch up the current cast and–hopefully–boost the show’s ratings.
An unnamed source told The Sun:
“There’s going to be a big cast shake-up next season and some producers are mulling over asking Phaedra Parks to return.”
The source continued:
“The hope is that having fan favorites like Phaedra come back will help the show rise back into the 2 million viewers-a-week arena.”
As you may recall, Phaedra‘s time on RHOA was quite the mixed-bag. While known for her “reads” her self-proclaimed Southern Belle allure, Phaedra is also remembered for the controversy that surrounded her final RHOA season–ultimately leading to her 2017 departure from the franchise.
Throughout RHOA‘s ninth season, Porsha Williams continuously accused Kandi Burruss-Tucker of intending to drug and rape her, as well as having a sex dungeon. While Kandi Burruss-Tucker was able the turn the sex dungeon accusation into a money-making schtick of sorts (i.e. launching a sold-out Dungeon Tour), Porsha Williams’ accusations rocked the boat in such a way that they are still brought up on the show years later.
However, it was revealed at the RHOA season nine reunion that it was Phaedra—the frick to Porsha Williams’ frack–who concocted the aforementioned rumors. As a result, Phaedra has not appeared on the franchise since then. But it seems as though that might be changing!
