Nearly six months after 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' blowup, Porsha Williams has not only revealed that she and Phaedra Parks still aren’t friends but also added the real reason why.
Fans remember the epic fallout between Frick and Frack on the ninth season reunion for the popular Bravo series back in May. It was the ending of a dramatic season that included Williams accusing her costar Kandi Burruss of trying to drug her. It came out at the reunion that Parks was the one who fed Williams the speculation, resulting in a back-and-forth between the ladies that lasted all season long. Williams made it clear she was hurt and said she couldn’t trust Parks. Now, she’s given an update and it doesn’t look like much has changed.
“Don’t ever work with your friends, period,” Williams told her sister Lauren in a new teaser of the upcoming tenth season. “Sometimes with friends you never know where their interests lie. I pretty much decided to lock it down when it comes to new friends.”
As if right on cue, she then read a text message from Parks, who is not returning to the show this season.
Williams responded to the message and said, “I feel like what she did to me was somethings he felt she had to do to get back at Kandi and she used me as collateral.”

It’s not clear if Parks was fired after the dramatic ending or if she left on her own terms. Recent reports said Parks still wanted to come back to the show, despite other rumors that none of the ladies wanted to film with her.
“Phaedra has been talking to some of the women of ‘RHOA’ again but has not filmed any scenes so far,” an insider said. “They are still filming so anything could happen and there is room for a cameo but she has not returned and obviously still isn’t part of the cast.”
Parks’ now former costar Sheree Whitfield also confirmed that not many costars are a fan of Parks.
“I don’t know, it’s so hard right now,” she said. “It’s hard to establish trust with someone like that because, for me, it seemed that she showed no remorse for what she did and for her actions. I think it will be hard for any of the women to forgive. I never want to take money out of anyone’s pockets and that’s not who I am, but in this instance, it’s hard to say.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns to Bravo Nov.5 at 8/7c.
