Desperate Housewife! RHOA’s Phaedra Parks BEGS for Her Peach Back
She needs the money — fast!
Poor and Desperate
Phaedra Parks isn’t taking unemployment too well.
Just months after she was fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta for spreading nasty rumors about her castmates, the 43-year-old reality star is said to be struggling to make ends meet since losing her massive $1.3 million paycheck from Bravo. According to Radar Online, the once Bravolebrity is so strapped for cash these days that she’s taken to begging the show’s producers to take her back.
“She’s desperate for cash,” an insider tells the outlet. “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.”
“She has been in constant contact with producers asking to make a cameo or be part of the series in some capacity,” the source continues. “They have repeatedly declined her offers because she no longer has an organic relationship with any of the season 10 cast members.”
That girl is poison
With her marriage over and ex-husband Apollo Nidi now in prison, Phaedra is scrambling to make her life more interesting for the show. An informant claims the Athens native even “offered to date and open up more about her personal life” if she could return for the tenth season.
“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,” the source spills.
Shunned by the Cast
Earlier this year, Andy Cohen revealed the rest of the RHOA cast wanted nothing to do with Phaedra following the false accusations. “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,” he told E! News. “How do you shoot a show about a group of friends when no one is speaking to one of the friends?”
Kandi also recently broke her silence on her friend-turned-foe. When asked if Phaedra apologized on-camera for the ugly allegations, she told Hip Hollywood, “That ain’t got nothing to do with me. Nothing to do with me.”
“I have not done any scenes with her. I have not seen her so that’s all I can tell you,” she said. “We can never talk again.”
She added of the ugly rumors, “It is a relief to me that my name was cleared, that people no longer have to wonder if I would do something like that. You cannot fight a lie. I’m just so glad the truth finally came out because I would never want something like that to be attached to me.”
