A longtime friendship is over after the latest drama on ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ Porsha Williams revealed she’s not on speaking terms with Phaedra Parks after their battle with Kandi Burruss on the May 7 reunion show. Get the latest here.
“My uncle passed away a couple of weeks ago and [Phaedra Parks] did text me and offer her condolences,” Porsha Williams explained to Dish Nation on May 9. “Besides that, I haven’t talked to her.” Considering these women were BFFs, this falling out is totally shocking.
In case you haven’t been following, here’s what went down. During this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha accused Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker of trying to drug and take advantage of her, a rumor she heard from Phaedra, which Kandi and Todd viciously denied. Phaedra was insistent that she heard the drugging story from Kandi herself, but on the reunion show, she admitted that wasn’t the case, which really upset Porsha. Porsha was visibly upset that she took part in spreading the false rumor, and slammed Phaedra for using her as a ‘pawn’ in her feud with Kandi.
“[Phaedra] was like my best friend. Someone I talked to on the phone every single day,” Porsha added in her Dish Nation interview. “And for me to feel like she betrayed me like that, and the fact that I was sitting right there and watched her continue to lie on me about it, that’s the part I can’t get past. And I don’t know if I ever will. Right now, I just can’t talk to her.”
She admitted that she may be “strong enough” to reconcile with Phaedra one day, but for now, it’s not happening. Meanwhile, Phaedra has reportedly been fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
