Season eight of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is a fresh start for Phaedra Parks, who is now a single, working mother of two. While it seems like Phaedra is keeping it all together so far, she recently took to her Bravo blog to dish about her marriage, Peter’s video, and the throw down between co-stars Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore. See what Phaedra had to say below!
Phaedra reveals that her sons, Ayden and Mr. President, are doing great in spite of Apollo’s absence in their lives.“What haven’t they been up to would be an easier question to answer! Dylan is 2 and just started pre-school; he is making lots of friends and enjoys all the activities he gets to do at school. Ayden is 5, just started kindergarten, plays soccer, and, like every Southern gentleman is learning how to play golf. Both of them are very engaged with school and friends.”
As for the Peter’s video, which co-star Porsha Williams showed her, Phaedra says she hopes Peter and Cynthia can move past it. “I tried not to jump to any conclusions, because if there is one thing we have all learned, it is that things are not always as they appear. That being said, there was certainly an appearance of impropriety, and I would think a married man should be sensitive to that fact. Hopefully, Cynthia and Peter will be able to work through this and move on.”
Her own marriage, on the other hand, is over beyond repair admitting it was a tough decision to divorce Apollo. “It is always difficult when a husband and wife decide they are no longer going to be together, especially when children are involved. At the end of the day, our children are most important, and they will always be my main focus and first priority.”
While Phaedra and Sheree don’t know each other too well, Phaedra is happy that Sheree is back in the group. “Sheree and I run into each other periodically. For the past four years, I have been pregnant or a new mom, which limited my time to socialize. That being said, I am excited Sheree has returned to our circle.”
Phaedra even admits she’s all too happy to take Sheree’s side after the altercation between Kenya and Sheree at Cynthia’s party, even calling Kenya obsessed. “I was not surprised the altercation occurred. I am not sure why Kenya is so obsessed with Chateau Sheree. I would think her time would be better spent worrying about Moore Manor. However, minding one’s business has never been anyone in this group’s fortè. Thank God Cynthia had sunglasses because her party was a shady event.”
Thoughts on Phaedra’s blog post? Do you think Phaedra really wishes Peter and Cynthia well? Do you think Phaedra and Sheree will team up against Kenya?
