The fallout from Phaedra Parks’ massive lie about former friend and Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss continues to send shockwaves through reality TV. Now, Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen is speaking out for the first time about the drama…and it’s safe to say Phaedra is basically done on the show.
During the NBCUniversal Upfronts earlier this week, Cohen was interviewed on the red carpet by E! and naturally he was asked about the jaw-dropping revelation about Parks being the one who spread the rape and drug allegations about Kandi Burrus.
According to E!, Cohen pretty much confirmed her permanent exit from the show with a single statement, “No one wanted to work with her.The question that we look at now with Phaedra is, when the reunion ended, none of the other women wanted to have anything to do with her. So that’s what you have to look at,”
Cohen told E!. “How do you shoot a show about a group of friends when no one is speaking to one of the friends?”
If you are familiar with other Housewives cities in the franchise, then you know that the easiest way to get someone off the show is banding together as a cast and refusing to film with a certain person…and Phaedra has just learned how cold that feeling can be.
While Bravo has yet to officially announce that she will not return for the show’s 10th season, Cohen’s statements, along with Phaedra’s blaming the show’s producers for her downfall, it doesn’t look good for her return.
Filming of RHOA season 10 is set to begin sometime this summer.
