“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks has been fired from the hit series, according to Page Six.
The self-proclaimed “Southern Belle,” who has been on the show for six seasons, was let go after she quietly dropped the bomb that she started the rumor that Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams.
The shocking revelation came out Sunday night during the dramatic finale of the four-part reunion show on Bravo hosted by Andy Cohen.
“They were so disgusted with her. The entire cast and Andy agreed Phaedra would not be coming back next season. She dug her own grave. She’s considered a liability and will not be returning. Andy is upset,” the insider told Page Six.
Despite the fact that all of the women on the hit show “spill the tea” or gossip about one another, Bravo felt like Park's allegations were so egregious, they could no longer work with her and informed her in early April, according to TMZ.
Parks, a lawyer who used to represent singer Bobby Brown, joined the franchise during its third season. Her former husband, Apollo Nida, was sent to federal prison two years ago for bank fraud. The two have two sons together.
