RHOA season 9 is in the middle of a major scandal revolving around Kandi Burruss Tucker and her sexual preferences. Her former friends Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks were caught gossiping to Sheree Williams about her lesbian tendencies, and even accused her of living in the closet; furthermore, they insisted that she and hubby Todd Tucker had 3-somes in their sex-dungeon, with close friend Shamea Morton.
Sheree spilled the beans and after an awkward conversation the blame was all placed on Porsha, whild Phaedra refused to speak up and uncomfortably sipped her drink, pretending she had never heard about any of this before!
On Sunday night’s WWHL Andy asked Porsha if she was upset that she took the fall, and with Phaedra in the audience things could have gotten heated, but lucky for her they didn’t at all!
“I mean, I can hold my own. There were some moments in the season, I was like, ‘Frack, come on,’” Porsha admitted. Adding, “But Phaedra’s her own person. I’m my own person. And most of the time when I’m in confrontation, they’ve said something directly about me, so I’m always gonna speak up for myself.”
Then Andy asked Phaedra why she refused to speak up, and of course she blamed it on her status as an attorney, and insisted she refused to let RHOA ruin her reputation in the courtroom!
“The thing is, if I say something, I’m not going to be out of my element. I’m an attorney. I have jobs, so I’m going to not be getting crazy or ratchet because I have to go back to the City Hall, and I have to do real work. So I’m not going to be portraying myself any kind of way getting slime balled with the rest of these people. I’m not doing that. I’ve got five degrees for a reason,” Phaedra explained.
I think Phaedra needed to speak up, she’s the one who announced this in the first place. She’s lucky to have a friend like Porsha, because most people wouldn’t have handled it so well, and Phaedra would have wound up in the middle of the scandal herself!
