The 9th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta was one of the most controversial seasons of all time. There was drama, shade, backstabbing, rumors, and lies that consumed the season. The biggest lie of the season was that Kandi and Todd (her husband) wanted to drug Porsha and sexually take advantage of her. Through out this season, there was many rumors that were told but the theme of the season seemed to be no one confessing to starting the rumor. So when we got to the 4 part reunion, people were on the tip of their seat waiting to see what will be revealed. After watching the unnecessary 3 parts of the reunion, we finally got to the meat and potatoes. Part 4 revealed that Porsha was told this rumor among other things by Phaedra. Not only did Phaedra tell Porsha that Kandi tried to drug her, she told her that it came straight from Kandi’s mouth. Everyone was shocked and upset to say the least. No one was more distraught that Kandi! First, Porsha walked off the set because she was hurt that Phaedra lied to her. Then after a couple of minutes, Kandi had to walk off set as well. This all led filming to take a break so everyone could gather there thoughts and emotions.
Andy Cohen confirmed that Phaedra would not be returning for season 10. “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?”
So after being a part of the cast for 7 years now, she is no longer a part of the show. Who knows, she might be asked to come back later. We shall see. For now, Phaedra is blaming the producers for setting her up. Rumor is that, Executive Producer Carlos King was the person that told Phaedra Kandi and Todd wanted to drug Porsha. That has not be confirmed. Carlos King is no longer a part of RHOA. The rumor is that he was fired due to telling Phaedra a lie about other cast members, but Carlos gives other reasons for his departure. Carlos said that he has other opportunities with his production companies. His departure from the show was released before the end of the season and the shocking part 4 of the reunion.
What do you think about Phaedra being fired? Do you think she was set up by the producers? Do you think Bravo will bring in new cast members? Do you think any of the old members will return? Which member will you like to see return?
Let’s talk about it….
