This week on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Phaedra Parks and Kandi Tucker’s relationship took a big step in the right direction. Mama Joyce intervened on the situation, clearly missing the ladies as friends. She surprised Phaedra at her office, but handled the situation beautifully; she exposed a softer side we don’t often see from Mama Joyce, and I for one was surprised. She even asked Phaedra to help plan Kandi’s baby shower, a very endearing offer.
While both Mama Joyce and Phaedra seemed genuine fans couldn’t help but wonder if this was really going to help the ladies relationship, and it seems it has! Phaedra went to visit Kandi in the hospital the day after baby Ace was born. This is an intimate gesture, proving to fans things are looking up for the former BFF’s. This week Phaedra sat down with Bravo and gave her side of the story for this week’s episode!
Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind when Mama Joyce showed up at your office?
Phaedra Parks: Although I was not expecting a visit from Mama Joyce, it was a welcomed surprised. As mothers we are always concerned about our children. Similar to Kandi, I had two high risk pregnancies, so I understand her concern. I appreciate that Mama Joyce acknowledged that Kandi and I have a long history together and we have shared life changing moments. I am glad that she knows at the end of the day I will always be there for her and Kandi.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Mama Joyce wanted your help with the baby shower?
PP: Yes, I was a bit surprised, but thought it was very sweet of Mama Joyce to ask me to assist. Mama Joyce knows that the friendship between Kandi and I has a rich history and she knows that we have shared many significant life events. I appreciate her acknowledging the big picture of our connection and including me in the plans. And everybody knows I love planning extravagant events.
Bravotv.com: Do you think you and Todd finally put the issue to rest and moved forward?
PP: The matter is finally being handled in professional manner on both sides and in the correct venue and context. So I am pleased with the progression. The fat lady has not yet sung, but she is warming up.
Phaedra was very sweet with her words and I really hope these two are back for good. I loved watching them together; you could tell their friendship was much bigger than the show. Now Baby Ace can play with Aiden and Dylan, something fans would go crazy for! It’s about time Phaedra and Todd get professionals involved to handle this work-out DVD mess. Hopefully they can put that all behind them and move forward without any animosity.
