Phaedra Parks Not Returning to 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'

Previously on part three of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, the husbands and Shamea joined the ladies and had their sights set on Phaedra and Porsha.

Now that we know that she's behind the ugly rumor that Burruss and husband Todd Tucker wanted to drug Williams and friend Shamea Morton to take advantage of them, she's speaking out.

After the reveal, the other women were clearly shocked, with Cynthia Bailey saying, "All the years I've done the show, this is some insane s-t right here".

NeNe even expressed how upset she was over how "low" Porsha and Phaedra are willing to go but claims this behavior has been going on forever.

Phaedra's alleged false rumor-mongering was exposed during the final episode of the four-part season 9 reunion special. "[Phaedra] and I, it has escalated over the years, but to repeat and say I would drug somebody, there's multiple levels to that", Kandi explained about their ongoing beef during season 9. But the way she was willing to twist things to get her way or exact "revenge" calls her ethics as a defender of the law into question. The sad thing about it is that the frick (Porsha Williams) to her frack was caught in the middle of it and looks to be collateral damage. "I apologized already and the person I'm most concerned about is Porsha", Parks said. But she told PEOPLE that she has plenty of positive people in her corner, including her family and closest friends you don't really get to see.

"Let's stop because I don't even want to say anything insane to you", Kandi replied.

"Of course", she sobbed. "Well you know I think Mama Joyce is obsessed with me, because when you're destined for greatness, people will be obsessed with your spirit and your aura", Phaedra told The Daily Dish. Last week, Porsha revealed she first heard about it from Parks, who claimed she heard it from Kandi firsthand.

When the ladies made their way back to the couches, it was clear Phaedra wasn't prepared to fully own her part in anything. Porsha talks to her sister and Andy and admits that she feels like she was used as a pawn by Phaedra. She tried to take me down and it did not work. I have always been of the belief that this woman could not have lived with the father of her children and know not one thing about his business dealings. "I'm sorry that it hurt Kandi as well".

Phaedra's exit could boost screen time for Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who is expected to return for season 10. "How many episodes she's in is being determined".
