The blowup between Phaedra Parks and her co-stars on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta was not enough to keep her away. Word is, she’s in talks of a major return.
“She’s desperate for cash,” one source told Radar Online Tuesday. “She’s trying to sell one of her homes and lease a recently purchased home because she doesn’t have the substantial income that she was earning on ‘RHOA.’”
Parks was reportedly making $1.3 million for her spot on the show.
They added that Parks has already taken steps to get back her peach – or at least have regular appearances.
“She has been in constant contact with producers asking to make a cameo or be part of the series in some capacity. They have repeatedly declined her offers because she no longer has an organic relationship with any of the season 10 cast members.”
Plus, rumor has it no one really wants to tape with her. But it might be easier said than done for Parks to take no as a final answer.
“[She] offered to date and open up more about her personal life,” the insider continued as they revealed Parks latest attempt. “The producers made it clear that they were more interested in following her story when she was married to Apollo since viewers could relate to the stigma of dating a man with a troubled past and his journey to rehabilitating his life.”
She has a different stance now considering she had refused to show her dating life on camera in the past. But now, it looks like she felt that was her only choice after she was blasted for attempting to criminalize her former BFF Kandi Burruss.
Parks joined The Real Housewives of Atlanta in the third season. She and her then husband Apollo Nida along with Cynthia Bailey and her then boyfriend Peter Thomas were the newbies that season. Fans have seen the ins and out of the lives of Parks and Nida as they were expecting their first child together, Ayden, when they joined the series. She then gave birth to their second child, Dylan, a couple of years after that. Things in their relationship went left amid cheating speculation and Nida’s guilty plea to a fraudulent scam that allegedly laundered millions. He’s expected to be released in on August 29, 2020.
It came out last season that Nida is engaged to another woman, Sherien Alufti.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns to Bravo in November.
