Will the franchise lose its resident southern belle?
Phaedra Parks May Be Leaving Real Housewives Of Atlanta
We’ve already heard a few whispers of Phadra avoiding on-screen time with her recently sentenced, soon-to-be-ex-husband Apollo Nida, but now it looks like the RHOA star may be stepping away from reality lenses altogether. Via AJC.com:
Phaedra Parks is the latest cast member rumored to be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
According to new reports, Parks will take a “leave of absence” from the seventh season of RHOA that will start immediately. Sources reveal that the star does not want all her personal problems [Apollo Nida] broadcast to the world, and has decided to leave so she can “focus more on her family following Apollo’s imprisonment.”
Parks allegedly plans on coming back for season eight but show insiders say Bravo producers are not sure that they’ll even allow her to come back.
How do you think the show will change without Phaedra?
Honestly, with all the real-life chaos going on in Phaedra’s world, it may be in her best interest to keep the additional drummed-up drama of reality TV out of her life for the moment.
