At the end of the ninth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra Parks ruined her chances of rekindling a relationship with castmate, Kandi Burruss, all while sabotaging the relationship she had with Porsha Williams.
The two were already on the outs. However, it was a drugging rumor perpetuated by Parks and spread by Williams, that left Burruss in tears, fighting to reestablish her credibility and clear her name of the defamation.
On Sunday, a brand-new episode titled, “Secrets Revealed,” showed never-before-seen footage of Parks during the season. In one clip in particular, several castmates got together to try to get Parks and Burruss to mend fences and make up. According to PEOPLE, the clip was shot after the two had a private conversation at dinner, way before Williams brought the drug drama to Burruss.
“The conversation sort of went awry because she brought up things that had happened in the past and that’s not what I was there for,” Parks said of her initial meeting with the singer. “I will say this, maybe I was being petty. But she never apologized about stuff that I’m like, ‘Unbelievable.’ I’ve been accused of turning her into the feds!”
The women gave Parks advice on how to move forward with Burruss, suggesting an apology to settle their squabble, but it appears their opinion went into one ear and out the other, as she revealed she no longer cared about Burruss or their long-lost friendship.
It seems like Parks could have avoided all the drama if she just took her castmates advice and mend things with Burruss. Instead, she told Williams that Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, had planned to drug her, claiming she heard it from Burruss, herself. However, at the reunion, after Williams had taken the heat for spreading the rumor during the season, Parks finally revealed she heard it from someone else and repeated it, leaving her with no friends and no job, as RHOA made the decision to give her the boot after the damaging rumors.
