We can all agree that Phaedra Parks has done some questionable things throughout the years, especially when it comes to her divorce with Apollo Nida. That being said, Sunday night’s episode must have been extremely hard for her to watch, and she has every right to be upset for numerous reasons!
Clearly producers and Todd Tucker were working together to bring Apollo’s fiancé Sherien Almufti onto RHOA, and it was extremely disrespectful to Phaedra given the current situation. Phaedra’s co-stars all seemed shocked by Sherien’s arrival, even Kandi Burruss Tucker who’s event it was; it doesn’t make sense that Todd wouldn’t tell her, so despite claims that she didn’t know, she in a, “guilty by association” dilemma!
In this week’s Bravo Blog Phaedra opened up about her family and the support they are providing while Apollo’s away. Then she slammed Apollo for introducing Sherien to the group, but clarified it’s not because of her, but rather their young sons who are affected by this drama!
“My parents are my rock; no matter what is happening in my life, they are there for me with love, strength, wisdom, and prayer. Both of my parents are Pastors and believe in the sanctity of marriage, however they understand that things don’t always work out the way we want despite our faith. They continue to support me unconditionally and give me the guidance only a parent can provide. They always help with my children. They are a source of love and stability for my sons. God could not have blessed our family with better parents and grandparents,” Phaedra gushed.
Porsha’s birthday night for Phaedra was exactly what she needed, a low-key girls night. Porsha is a bit quirky but the onesies were hysterical and the whole night was a really sweet, supportive gesture.
“Porsha was so thoughtful to put together such a fun girls’ evening for my birthday. She always lifts my spirits and is very supportive of me. I loved our matching onesies; no matter how old Porsha and I get, we will always be Frick and Frack,” she gushed.
Phaedra was extremely nice considering how inappropriate Sherien’s cameo was, and she’s right that this will one day (soon, or in the future) get back to their sons; Apollo only sees dollar signs, he obviously didn’t even have his children in mind!
“It was my birthday so I am glad I decided to spend it with Porsha instead of being ambushed at the OLG opening! Even though Apollo and I are no longer together, this was disappointing for me to watch,” she admitted.
Continuing, “Not because of my feelings, but because we have two young and impressionable sons who very much need a positive male role model, and this sort of behavior is not something I would want them to associate with their father,” Phaedra wrapped.
I am not so sure that it has nothing to do with Phaedra’s feelings, but Sherien was such a wreck that she confirmed what we all assumed; Apollo downgraded with this opportunist!
The season 9 reunion is said to be explosive and I can’t wait to hear what the women think about Sherien’s cameo; none of them looked amused to see her there!
