Phaedra Parks is speaking out on her possible and highly anticipated return to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ and her thoughts on former co-star and ex friend Kandi Burruss revealing that IF Phaedra returns, she will quit the show.

Earlier this year it was announced that after years of fans begging and pleading for her return, Bravo was reportedly in talks to bring the Southern Belle back to the show for season 12 which is currently filming now.

Once the word got around, Kandi revealed in various interviews that she would be fine if Bravo wanted to bring her former friend turned foe back, but confirmed that she would walk away from the show if that were to happen.

Well now months later, Phaedra has reacted to Kandi’s statement in a new interview with Daily Mail.

“I find it amusing, because if she is that concerned about me three years later, I must have really impacted her life. So I’m glad I touched her like that”

As far as her return, she says she is currently not in talks but would not rule it out.

I know there’s lots of rumors swirling around about me returning to the housewives, but I haven’t had any discussions about returning.

I never say never to any opportunities, but I had a good run and you know, I’m very happy right now.’

I was on Real Housewives for eight years. Both of my children were born on air, my ex spouse went to prison on the show.

I had a lot of big events happen in my life on there so I’ve got a lot of great memories.

I would never say never, but I’m in a very great place in my life… and you see this glow.”

Phaedra went on to discuss her gripes with the show that she says manipulated her for ratings.

‘I was just a character that they’re manipulating for their own benefit.’

Parks said she had a fight with someone almost every day for eight years of filming because that’s the ‘nature’ of a reality show.

Parks was also subject to numerous false allegations and claims, all done to spice things up, saying: ‘They completely made up one story that I was dating an African prince the day Apollo went to prison.

‘I was seeing some African man named Mr Chocolate while I was breastfeeding my baby, going to mortuary school, my husband’s going to prison and I’ve got a two-year-old.

‘I mean, it was the most ludicrous, crazy thing in the world. I was never unfaithful in my marriage at all.

‘But of course the show ran with it because it made for good TV.’

Parks said the producers on RHOA were ‘continually making up stuff’, to make the show more interesting.

‘That’s the essence of reality TV, they make things up to make storylines juicy.

‘People love to watch other people having very tragic, dramatic situations that are out of control because it makes them feel like their life is not half as bad.’

Phaedra also confirmed that she has a new television project in the works.

“Well, I have a new television project on the horizon”.

“I can’t mention it yet, but I’m coming back to the small screen. It’s a very popular show and you get to see me in a totally different light.”
