Cynthia Bailey Says Phaedra Parks Could Make A Comeback On ‘RHOA’ After Kandi Burruss Announces Departure: ‘She’s Great TV’
If you ask Cynthia Bailey, a familiar face could return to the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.’
While at the Grammy Awards earlier this month, co-star Kandi Burruss said she’s not returning to the Bravo reality show after 14 seasons. Following the announcement, Cynthia Bailey said Kandi Burruss’s departure might be a good time for Phaedra Parks to return.
Cynthia Bailey said,
“Kandi and Phaedra had their thing. That has nothing to do with me, but if Kandi is not there and they feel like, you know, it’s time for Phaedra to come back, that’s a conversation between Phaedra and the network.”
Longtime viewers of the series, which debuted in 2008, are familiar with the fallout between Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks that aired during the ninth season.
It began after Phaedra Parks instigated a rumor suggesting Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker, wanted to drug and sexually assault Porsha Williams, who has since left the reality TV series.
During the reunion, Porsha Williams revealed that Phaedra was the source of the rumor. After the incident, Bravo reportedly fired Phaedra in April 2017, but Kandi was still furious with her former friend.
Fast forward to 2024, and Phaedra and Kandi have not made amends.
As for the reason Burruss is leaving ‘RHOA,’ she admitted it was time to test new waters and focus on her family. She explained that specific “mommy duties” became possible following her absence from the reality TV series.
