Phaedra Parks certainly fixed a rumor – I asked her about Atlanta’s newest housewife, rumored to be Marlo Hampton, but Phaedra denies that there is a new Housewife.
“We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife,” Phaedra told me. She also said that her husband and son stayed back in Atlanta but that her little guy is now “one years old” and is starting to walk and talk.
Phaedra was quick to confirm that her on-screen battle with NeNe Leakes will continue next season but that she’s become very close to Kandi Burress this season.
“I won’t comment on the word ‘Boughetto’ that Kandi used to describe my baby shower, it is offensive, but me and Kandi, we love each other now.”
When asked what she thought of NeNe’s appearance on the Celebrity Apprentice, Phaedra was not impressed: “All this ‘keeping it real’ nonsense isn’t what the show is about. Star Jones is a good friend of mine, so is Little John, they played it right, it was supposed to be about charity.”
