Phaedra Parks lost her Real Housewives of Atlanta peach after the Season 9 reunion, and while some were happy to see her go, NeNe Leakes is ready to welcome the attorney back onto the Bravo series with open arms.
Parks attended Leakes’ birthday celebration this weekend, flicking it up with her former co-star while wishing her well on Instagram.
“When the princess celebrates with the queen happy birthday Queen @neneleakes.”
Leakes later posted the same photo with Parks, writing “Come on back, P,” and more in her caption.
“I gotta lot of gifts but this 1 takes the cake @phaedraparks #fixitjesus #RHOA #comeonbackP #phaephae #bdayturnup.”
Leakes may be willing to film with Parks, but Kandi Burruss still has no desire to reconcile with the mother of two. Parks was responsible for starting rumors that Burruss wanted to drug Porsha Williams and take advantage of her sexually, which Williams repeated multiple times throughout the season. Following their reunion blowup, Parks was booted from the show, leaving the songwriter and the mom-to-be to hash out their differences.
While answering a fan question on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Burruss says Parks, unlike Williams, never reached out to apologize, and she has no interest in rebuilding their relationship.
“No. Absolutely not. C’mon now, Keke,” Burruss told fellow guest, Keke Palmer. “Absolutely not; that was too far, that was too much. I never heard anything, no apology, no nothing, and I’m cool with that. We don’t ever have to talk again, let’s just move forward.”
